Beautifully haunting doesn’t even begin to describe Tula’s latest single, Bullet. The Berlin based Swedish songstress offers up some dusky aching electronica and pop after having captivated us with her exceptional voice and exquisite minimalist pop for the past several years. That’s right, the first time we ever featured Tula was well over five years ago, when she riveted us with a now gone for the interwebs performance on Berlin Sessions. Bullet’s sparse soundscape is punctuated by glitchy trembling sonic patterns and trip hop styled percussion, all tied together by Tula’s vocal performance. Its gossamer and opaque production is reminiscent of Marian Hill’s future pop fused with Sevdaliza’s sinuous twisting music. Bullet is a ghostly and near-macabre ballad whose music video is fittingly crepuscular and austere. Watch the film below.

I’m still very much obsessed with LOVE SICK’s debut single Bullet, a song I consider one of the year’s best electronic pop debuts. You can re-visit the Scottish newcomers’ original, a twisted love song that’s also fiery resilient, here. LOVE SICK has revealed a stripped down piano version of the song, and it’s a raw emotive, vulnerable and exposed gem that really brings out the agony and poignancy of the song. The acoustic, minimalist rendition of Bullet is a heart pummeling experience. The original version of LOVE SICK’s Bullet can be purchased, here.

Bullet is arguably one of the best pop debuts of the month so far, and in the time between when it first surfaced last week and today, when I’ve finally found a moment to share the track, a whole lot of tastemakers and hypem voters seem to have agreed. The song is the first from Scottish boy-girl duo LOVE SICK. Equal parts twisted love song and fiery resilient pop, Bullet fires on all counts. Shaun and Julie of LOVE SICK are both Scottish natives, but they’re now based out of London, where they seem primed and ready for a pop takeover. There’s no denying the sheer power of Julie’s smoky rich voice or the draw of the song’s robust soundscape that mixes contemporary elements with retro aspects. Purchase or stream LOVE SICK’s golden first single, here.

Los Angeles’ Instant Karma seems to have a knack for picking some of my favorite emerging indie acts to remix. I’ve shared their remixes of Flor and Fletcher in the past, and the latest endearing treat they offer us is a remix of fellow SoCal artist Chelsea Lankes’ flushed melodic aria Bullet. Their crisp bouncing, high bounding remix instills in me a need to get up and dance wildly and with abandon. Instant Karma’s Bullet floods me with warm euphoria, a sweet fiery burst of gratifying jubilation on a long summer night.

If you aren’t already head over heels in love with Chelsea Lankes despite my constant sharing of the Los Angeles chanteuse’s dashing pop, you will be now. There’s no resisting the sexy new music video for Chelsea Lankes’ Bullet, easily my favorite catchy and melodically bouncy Chelsea confections. Her sassy choreography on the steamy flushed video matches the song’s snappy beats and uplifting punch. Bullet and its video are the perfect cure for heartbreak. They’ve also left me with a major case of girl crush. Bullet comes from Chelsea Lankes’ can’t miss self titled debut EP, out now on iTunes.

Chelsea Lankes’ Bullet is a sharpshooting pop anthem. Bullet is undeniably catchy, its bouncing beats, airy vocals, and glowing sweet melody a dance inducing mass of playful, punchy euphoria. Bullet is a fine addition to the emerging Los Angeles based star’s blooming repertoire, and it leaves me hungry to hear it live, hopefully at SXSW next month. Bullet will be on Chelsea Lankes’ self titled debut EP, due out April 8th on B3SCI Records.

Enigmatic Danish artist Kill J returns today with You Have Another Lover, an ephemeral, chilly Scandinavian pop ballad with the delicate, other worldly qualities of Bjork, but also the haunting dark electronic pop flavors of BANKS, particularly as the song flowers and soars in the last third. The song is the B side for previously featured, more uptempo and M.I.A./Die Antwoord evoking Bullet, which you can revisit below.

I was actually super fond of UK electronic pop act The Good Natured. I had loads of fun catching them live back in early 2012, when they played Popscene, alongside Katy B. The Good Natured had so many catchy, upbeat, spunky tunes, and they were spectacular live. Sarah McIntosh always reminded me some of La Roux, circa 2009, with her British accent, edgy style, and sassy music. Well, I keep saying things in the past tense, because, The Good Natured are no more. Don’t worry, they’re not gone, but they’re under a new moniker now. Ladies and gents, say hello to Lovestarrs. And get dancing to their new single Bullet, a fantastic song that reminds me exactly what I loved The Good Natured, and will continue following the music put forth by Lovestarrs. Bullet is off Lovestarrs’ forthcoming Supernova EP, out August 5 on LABS Records.
