As we dive into a brand new tune from Toronto’s NEW CITY, I feel like we’ve gone full circle. It was almost exactly a year ago that the alt/electro-pop outfit made their debut with Coachella, and now we get to share Getting Closer just as many of my music friends are preparing to make their annual pilgrimage to the festival these next few weekends. NEW CITY’s Coachella was an instant success, as expected, as was their following releases. They’ve since signed to Mosley (Timbaland’s new label) and Universal. Balmy electronica and infectious pop hooks abound on new single Getting Closer, which explores the ups and downs that come with chasing dreams and the courage it takes to trust yourself. The song is a declaration of empowerment, a mellifluous feel good anthem to carry us into the summer months. Getting Closer is available from major outlets, here.

An unexpected and epic alignment of talent brings us Faded, a dreamy effervescent amalgamation of Said The Sky’s melodic bass and FRND’s saccharine sparkling electro pop. The flawless juncture comes hot on the heels of Said The Sky’s All I Got. Atmospheric synths and summery, sun-kissed vocals weave into each other on the divinely glimmering and melodic burbling union. Faded is a contagious heart melter of a spry endearing gem from two names that will only become even more widely known in the coming year. Its energy is invigorating, yet there’s a soft underside to this sweetly affecting collaboration. Purchase/stream Faded, here.

Apparently, I’m having quite the Anglophile sort of night, but how can I help myself when great music like Sol Flare’s new song Easy Line surface from across the pond? The 80′s influenced duo of Dom Wood and Jenny Jones bring us more of their neon pop and melodic electronica on the chugging synthpop gem. Easy Lines breathy Kate Bush meets Sara Barthel vocals and florescent lush radiance come at us like a fusion of M83, Chvrches, and The Jezabels. There’s no resisting that breathtaking combination. Watch a live performance of Easy Lines via Youtube, below.
