Let’s visit the desert with Summer and Torrey from LA duo JOYNER as they enthrall us with the video for their fleecy, honeyed synthpop song Blue Love. We go on a soul-searching journey across a beautiful yet barren landscape while JOYNER tenderly examines disconsolate love on their airy melodic song. There’s a mirage-like quality to the shimmering beauty, which seem to mirror the deceptive illusions of love itself. For all the heat we usually associate with a desert, Blue Love feels crisp and refreshing, like a cool draft of thirst-quenching, life-giving water after a long and arduous day. Whether it’s the elements, or whether it’s heartbreak, JOYNER offers us a moment of sweet respite. The California sister duo will be releasing their self-titled debut EP on May 25th.

Easton Schirra is a Texas-born, Los Angeles-based singer songwriter who’s floored us with his exceptional voice on his phenomenal first single. The multi-talented artist has explored his creative tendencies through various mediums in the past. He’s even garnered success shooting the likes of Kendall & Kylie Jenner, Charli XCX, and Issa Rae as an accomplished photographer. But he soon found his musical passion when he started toying with songwriting while living in New York City, and we’re all the more grateful and fortunate for it. A love for Earth, Wind & Fire as well as an upbringing in jazz choir, coupled with his passion for contemporary R&B and new wave ambient tracks, has resulted in Blue Love, a truly intoxicating electro R&B track about drowning in love and the swell of emotions that ensues. We hold our breaths with Easton as we sink into this roiling, undulating ocean, an intertwining network of sleek falsettos, glassy warbling synths, and deep rumbling beats. Blue Love overwhelms our senses, reminding us of our own obsessions and how easy it is to spiral into the unknown when gripped in the unmerciful talons of love.

It’s been over half a year since I’ve had the pleasure of mentioning UK alt pop four piece Lisbon, but they’ve followed up their first single, Blue Love, with rip roaring new treat Rio. The dance punk flavored, energetic track still carries some of that island flavor we first heard on Blue Love, topped off with plenty of furious guitar riffs and tasty melody. It’s altogether insanely catchy and a whole lot of jump instigating fun. I can imagine how fantastic this track would be live, electrifying a crowd through and through. Watch Lisbon’s new video for the tune below. Rio will be available on iTunes come September 29. Let’s revisit Blue Love, too, since it’s been so long.

Lisbon is a new UK alt pop four piece. Last week, they unveiled a single titled Blue Love, and it’s filled with warm, tropical vibes. There’s an Imagine Dragons quality to the vocals (particularly earlier Imagine Dragons ie. their song Tokyo), but the production reminds me of St. Lucia, Ghost Beach, or many other synthpop acts that melted our hearts with summery anthems this past year. Blue Love drops officially on January 2 on iTunes.
