Years ago, when I first started writing about music on I Heart Moosiq, I came across a Bulgarian artist named DENA, and I became insanely obsessed with her song “Cash, Diamond Rings, Swimming Pools”, which I still love to this day. It’s a wonderfully spunky and endearing song that immediately reminded me of early M.I.A. and now in retrospect, also reminds me of MØ. Re-visit the still awesome music video for the track below. DENA, now based out of Berlin, has been MIA (pun intended) from the scene for a very long time, so we were thrilled when we saw that she’d signed a new record deal and released new track Imaginary Friends, on which she goes an extra dance-y route, blending 90s inspired hypnotic house and smooth R&B with her entrancing drawl. You know what would be really cool? If Yaeji and DENA collaborated, or if Yaeji re-mixed Imaginary Friends. Tell me that wouldn’t be a sweet treat. Imaginary Friends is out now via Mansions and Millions.

Despite how incredibly busy Los Angeles chanteuse Molly Moore must be with her other project Cosmos & Creature alongside boyfriend and progressive soul talent Brandyn Burnette, she still manages to spellbind us time and time again with new solo music. Imaginary Friends comes from Molly’s upcoming EP, Now You See Me, scheduled to arrive next month. Molly Moore and Brandyn Burnette share production duties on this passionately stirring, anguished aching ballad. They also wrote the song together with fellow Los Angeles based artist Eric Leva. With a voice both deep and powerful, Molly Moore strikes our hearts like a hot iron. The soulful smoldering anthem examines the experience of  trying to make real friends while living in Los Angeles. Imaginary Friends is out now on iTunes.
