There seems to be several artists in the scene who harbor a fondness for koalas, including the likes of Shura, and this enigmatic producer musician from Los Angeles, FRND. He releases his latest single via a Billboard premiered music video featuring his animated incarnation The Koala. Be Happy is a melancholia tinged indie electronica meets pop piece that some describe as “emo-electronic”. Even its indie electronica is genre defying, as it traverses between chill house and melodic bass. It’s infinitely hooking and deeply stirring. The video for Be Happy centers around an emotional journey after a relationship. The bittersweetly melting crossover gem is out now on iTunes, here.

Let’s pick up the deep house punch with this new heavy hitter, Koala, from very much buzzing Dutch producer Oliver Heldens. I’m not sure I picture koalas when I listen to this, but it’s certainly a sweet track, and I’m always a dope for progressive, bouncy piano chords (hence my fondness for a lot of The Magician’s tracks). Of course, Koala follows on the heels of massive stellar jam Gecko (Overdrive) with Becky Hill. Can’t forget about that one, can we?
