[Electronic // R&B] Marian Hill – Lips

Marian Hill

The way they part when you are attracted to someone, they way they break into a smile around your friends, the small frown they form when something is wrong.
They are the feature on our face that many of us first notice when we look at others, and the feature that many of us are attracted to.
Marian Hill took that seductive feeling of lips and produced a beautifully sexy song about them called, what else, ‘Lips’. Vocalist Samantha Gongol has always impressed us with her way to sing fairly tempting vocals about everything and anything but she really shines on this song. She paints a picture of these lips that you dream about, those perfect lips on that perfect someone. Along with her vocals, producer Jeremy Lloyd spins his magic with a combination of electronic melodies, voice rendering, snap sounds, and some drums to carry this stimulating song to the very end. This duo has found a singly sound that is unlike much we hear these days, and they continue to show why they work so well together, and why their music is so damn addictive.

[Indie/Rock] Jameson – Liar


Jameson and his banjo can do no wrong.
With his latest single ‘Liar’, Jamesons is showing us just how big of a range he has with his beloved instrument. The song talks about all the liars we know in our lives, or the ones who may not believe they are liars but would be perceived otherwise by the people around them. With a beautiful banjo melody, some soft percussion, and Jameson’s classic rasp/blues voice, he is quickly becoming one of our favorites artists to listen to.

[Melodic Dubstep] ODESZA – Always This Late (Illenium Remix)

Always This Late (Illenium Remix)

Remixes of ODESZA’s songs will continue to stream into our inboxes, and we will continue to be impressed with many of them. Denver based artist Illenium has put a beautifully electronic melody over ODESZA’s ‘Always This Late’ to create a kind of magical remix. The song reminds me of a scene from a futuristic movie, where the hero is fighting desperately for their nation, their way of life, or the one they love. Illenium has taken this original and bumped it up to a true electronic song, adding in beautiful piano melodies and synth progressions to add a certain luster to the original song. Get ready for a wild trip with this remix, Illenium wants to show it’s never too late for a great remix.

[Soul/R&B] Raye – Bet U Wish


I don’t even know where to start writing about this song.
Young London artist Raye is back with her single ‘Bet U Wish’, a heartwrenching song about cheating and the awful consequences for one night of infidelity. Raye has been on our radar since she came into a picture just a few months ago because she has a voice that resembles Rihanna, and lyrics that are older beyond her years but are exactly on point with each individual emotion sung. Raye knows how to sing a song that feels as if she is speaking to each listener individually who has gone through the emotional trenches just like her. Her ability to make you feel the song, especially the brokenness within this single, is consequently stunning. Make sure to check out her whole debut EP ‘Welcome To The Winter’ released a few days ago, I bet you wish you could hear more from her soon.
