When that chorus drops I literally get the hairs on the back of my neck standing up… Epic pop!
“natureland is a collection of five songs I wrote last year that allow me to be different parts of myself. No one ever just feels one emotion or repeats the same experience over and over again and I find it hard to regulate all my experiences into one smooth flowing record. Maybe it’s a little bit confused and a little tender but I’m okay with that, nothing’s perfect and I’m not trying to be…“
A blend of indie and funk, finished off with a slick beat.
JP Cooper brings back power pop in a very finessed way with this track.
“‘In These Arms’ is a song about addiction… through the perspective of being addicted to a person, knowing they’re not right for you and being in a prison by your own choice. It’s about constantly making excuses for the addiction and projecting romance on to it but ultimately knowing that it’s wrong. I think it’s something that most people would have been through at some point in their lives.. if not, it’s probably gonna happen…unless you’re one of the lucky ones. These are the relationships where you learn a hell of a lot about what is good for you, what you deserve and in turn, if we’re talking in the context of human relationships, what your partner deserves.”
“I am grateful for all the ups and downs, love and heartbreak, life and loss, and everything in between. Every breath is a beautiful gift and I hope this song reminds whoever is out there listening to hold on because you are worth it and you are loved”.
“’Jealous Of My Friends’ is the first song that will touch on the subject of love. For five years now, I’ve been avoiding everything that has to do with love. I’ve tricked myself into thinking that I’m better off without it—mostly because of fear. I think it’s fear of depending on someone and them depending on me, knowing that I can lose it at any second. I wrote the song at a time where pretty much all my friends were in relationships. I watched my friends be in love and be the happiest they’ve ever been. Obviously, I was super happy for them, but I also found myself being jealous. I was jealous that they dared to get out there and give love a chance, when I couldn’t. I still don’t know if I’m there yet, but writing about it is definitely a step in the right direction. I hope that this year can be the year when I give a part of me to someone else.”
Beautifully simple yet melodic pop from Brighton.
Something about the minimal beats and big lyrics make me feel all kinds when I listen to this track.
A unique hip hop sound that presents a chilled vibe with melodic vocals.
Tate McRae continues to impress with this polished, sassy pop sound.

“This song was inspired by the anxiety that someone can feel during the nigh time. It was inspired by my sister, because she gets scared of fireworks and I always have to comfort me. It got me thinking, wow sometimes we are scared of something that can’t hurt us. The only thing that can really hurt is in these situations are ourselves.”
Because Europe continues to blur genres, this Lithuanian talent has blended funk, pop and hip hop into a completely bonkers but also infectiously fun sound.
“The song explores the constant apprehensions and worry that can be present in modern romance and the anxiety fuelled episodes the rising generations are increasingly experiencing. An inability to understand what love really means and if we should allow ourselves to trust it.”
