There’s no resisting Zoey Lily’s misty, dusky pop. Her willowy, smoky voice tends to remind us of Billie Eilish and Soak, while her exquisitely emotive music always cuts to the bone, leaving a mark that lasts for all eternity. The 20 year old independent musician from London mesmerizes and moves with her gorgeous new single Not There, which features guest hip hop artist Indigo Svn. Not There is a morose ballad with soft electronic beats that leaves our hearts blissfully tingling… It’s a sparse and gossamer, pensive and reflective beauty bursting with tender and tragic romanticism. The haunting gem can also be streamed via Spotify, here.

A slew of mighty fine debuts have been rolling in just ahead of summer. Case in point, Olloway, a Vancouver-based electronic band who’s burst out of the gates with a gooey melting debut single named August. Olloway, formerly known as EDM duo FYKA, has crafted a song that redefines genres with its visionary blend of organic electronica and heartfelt alt pop. The duo has carved out their own irresistible niche in the scene with their airy synths, impassioned guitars, and fleecy vocals. Olloway’s first song is reminiscent of A R I Z O N A or Mansionair, deeply permeated with dewy-eyed sentiment but heavily punctuated by incendiary junctures and a Porter Robinson-like ethereal electronic bridge. August is the first release off their debut EP, expected this summer. Download August for free, here, as we await more from the fascinating new project.

If you haven’t been jamming to Westerman’s latest single for much of the month already, it’s high time you strut your stuff to groovalicious Edison, a slick warbling, funk slinking indietronica and pop song that gives voice to the frail inner monologue of the narcissist. As Westerman says “It’s about ambition, petulance and ill preparation. I imagined myself inside the head of the megalomaniac. I played around with all the unmet need and fear you would find there.“ The Londoner certainly crafts some of the most fascinating music of the moment. On warm glowing Edison, Westerman continues to collaborate with electronic producer Bullion to sculpt his sophisticated experimental sound. Edison even features some moments that remind me of early 80s classics by the likes of Talking Heads, but then Westerman quickly switches up the vibe of the song again with his lush blend of instrumentals. A Westerman album is slated for 2019, which seems like a very long time for us Westerman fans to wait, but we promise we’ll be patient. Edison is out on Apple Music, here.

DEAD2ME wasn’t what I expected to hear from Robokid when I was first afforded a generous preview of the track earlier this month, but I soon found myself marveling over the Los Angeles producer’s versatile talent and the song’s gripping alt sound. We’re witness to an incredible paradigm shift as Robokid captivates us with a superbly catching tune whose pulsing cadence and gritty vocals evoke The Chainsmokers’ recent music, or twentyone pilots and Blink-182 gone electro. The producer explains: 

in this song i was trying 2 capture my feelings when losing touch with friends whether or not it was by choice or beyond control..i hope it makes u feel some type of way.” It’s a rather poignant and familiar topic. Robokid creates an intimate sense of rapport as he takes us on a whirlwind ride with his dashing new alt electro track. Watch the lyric video for DEAD2ME below. The single is available on all major services, here.

It’s been a moment since we’ve visited with our favorite dance pachyderm from LA, but now that Elephante has released a terrific preview of his upcoming 9 track EP, it’s high time we delved straight back into the versatile artist’s vibrant music. Glass Mansion: Prologue features four tastes from the forthcoming project, which drops on June 15th. It’s a guest talent studded affair, as all four tracks he’s unveiled feature magnificent vocal cameos. For now, let’s turn our attention to Have It All, featuring ever pervasive chanteuse Nevve. Elephante presents us with an emotive stirring, lithesome skipping pop meets dance song with crisp affecting melodies and metallic thrumming synths. We can’t decide whether to melt into the floor or get up and dance. Maybe we can do both and “have it all”. Pre-order Glass Mansion, here. Listen to Glass Mansion: Prologue in full on Soundcloud, here.

Apparently, Khamsin’s “way” is also our way. The French producer has released his much-anticipated new single, My Way, featuring long time IHM favorite MOONZz on stellar vocals. And the track’s melodic trap and high-wire future bass is exactly the type of dynamic electronica and pop we love. Intensive percussion, thrilling drops, and intricate instrumentals embellish the magnificent song. Khamsin, who’s also a member of electronic super group Slow Hours, has expertly blended live instrumentals (those smooth guitar licks, wow) with a vividly animated future bass sound. MOONZz vocals are beautiful over Khamsin’s whimsical soundscape. Stream/download My Way, here.

Uffie made a grand return last week with her first single in nearly a decade, giving us a sumptuously sleek and crisp bopping delight named Drugs. She’s quickly followed up the unexpected surprise with a guest appearance on Swedish electronic legends Galantis’ latest single, Spaceship. Lift up and blast off with this superb team-up as we get some classic Galantis vibes on the mellifluous bounding single, full of vivacious energy and buoyant synths. Perhaps this can be Grimes’ new theme song for when her new beau sends her to outer space on a Falcon 9. Galantis says: “
 ‎’Spaceship’ takes us to the core of Galantis and our love for dance music. We couldn’t be more excited to join forces with Uffie. The first time we heard ‘Pop The Glock’, it blew our minds… and since then, Uffie’s music has always stuck with us. See you on the dance floor!” Spaceship is out on Big Beat Records, stream/download, here.

Diplo and MØ have proven themselves a match made in heaven countless times over the years. Whether it was some of the songs on the Danish pop sensation’s debut album, or her collaborations with Major Lazer, or even earlier this year’s Blender, the production luminary’s style of balmy and buoyant electronica has befit MØ‘s spunky pop to the tee. The pair reunited again earlier this month on Stay Open, a summer verdant, mischievous sparring anthem as bright and contagious as any other track the two have put forth together. Stay Open is out now on Mad Decent. Stream/download, here.

Line this up for anthem of the summer, because this crisp flickering, sweetly polished gem is immediately contagious and a wonderfully heart caressing treat! Do It For Me comes from Josefine, a 24 year old Swedish singer songwriter currently based out of Los Angeles. The lustrous prancing future pop love song features immaculate production by Grammy-award winning producer Justin Trugman (Jojo, Backstreet Boys, etc). The chill, summery electronica and pop single is available on all major platforms, here. Watch Josefine’s lyric video for the song below.

The music scene lately is rife with exceptional female pop debuts, and quite a few of them are coming from legendary music town Nashville, too. Singer songwriter ELA Lindsey has made her engrossing debut with a gritty synthpop song named Healing Me Slow, a lush sonic elixir enveloped in ravishing beats. The track, which was premiered by our friends at We Found New Music, is a lavishly layered, restlessly agitated beauty. Ruddy and dark, with willowy ethereal vocals, Healing Me Slow keys us into a must watch new talent who only recently discovered her passion for music a few short years ago after relocating to Nashville from her hometown of Jupiter, Florida. 

By releasing this new single, she hopes to inspire other women that might be starting their artistic journeys later than the typical industry standard usually allows for female pop stars. You can find the single on Apple Music, here.
