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.

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.

They say diamonds are a girl’s best friend. Sara Diamond has more than befriended my ears and enraptured my heart with sultry smoldering Fool, produced by Brody Gillman. The Canadian starlet woos us with her husky soulful voice on the discontent heartbreak ballad, a potent and grandiose outpouring of plush R&B and opulent electro-pop. Jessie Reyez’ fiery embers, Léon’s smoky deep vocals, and BANKS’ dark seduction unite on the moody gripping single, available via iTunes, here

RIVAH’s name might as well be “riveting”. The Australian artist turned in an effortless performance on debut single Untame late last year, transfixing us with a dusky glistening electro R&B emulsion. The track attracted a whole lot of praise and buzz. RIVAH went on to play her debut shows in NYC and LA last fall, and she’s since shared the local stages with the likes of Willow Beats, Golden Vessel, and SAATSUMA. Transitional Love is her latest release, a breathtaking teaser track developed from a first-take demo vocal and accompanied by a DIY iPhone video released ahead of her next single out in June. It’s a weightless gliding, ethereal soothing pop song with transcendental vocals and beautifully haunting, feathery pulsing production. We’re more than ready for that next single, but we’re going to take our time soaking in this celestial beauty in the meantime. Re-visit our Untame feature, here.

Molly Moore’s new EP Third Eye High has been out for well over a week, but we want to make sure you haven’t missed out on the four track release which showcases the Los Angeles based artist’s stunning evolution. Take for example, EP track Catch and Release which sees the captivating chanteuse venture into soulful R&B pop territory, complete with jazzy horns and much smoky, slinky allure. It’s a laid back groover of a sensual yet frisky pop. She easily catches our hearts once again, and we never want to be released. Catch and Release is a sumptuous development for the singer songwriter, whom we’ve been ardent fans of through her earlier pop releases and her collaborations with progressive soul talent Brandyn Burnette (including their electronic pop project together, Cosmos & Creature). Third Eye High can be streamed in full via all major services, here.

I’m going to come clean right now. I confess, I have a ridiculous obsession with Conrad Sewell’s sonorous voice and his new single Come Clean. The Australian singer songwriter has been spending much of the past couple of years touring, but he’s now unfurling new songs off his new project Ghosts & Heartaches. Come Clean is a piano pop song on which his voice alternates between gravelly soulful and lofty sleek. The weathered, heartfelt ballad is accompanied by a second new song named Healing Hands, which you can stream below. It’s a gospel endowed heartbreak pop anthem with beautifully stirring organ chords that builds its way towards erupting catharsis. Both songs are out now via 300 Entertainment. Stream/download, here.

Sydney based Singaporean singer songwriter and producer St. Humain dished up a molten combination of spry electronica, sleek synthpop, and irresistible pop on Free Fall earlier this year, making us quick fans of the budding artist. And now we get to bask in the golden glow of The Thought Of You, his divine new pop single featuring a balmy groove, crisp 80s drums, and fleecy smooth crooning. Though it’s an aching love song, The Thought Of You is sublimely soothing and warmly moving, like Years & Years gone Lauv. The single is out now on iTunes, here.

If Vancouver Sleep Clinic really were the name of a sleep clinic focused on helping people get past their insomnia, it’d probably be a total failure. For the life of me, I can’t imagine ever falling asleep to Tim Bettinson’s atmospheric and ambient alt pop, so often doused in spectacularly haunting electronic production. I feel very fortunate to have caught VSC on tour at intimate SF dive Bottom Of The Hill last spring, and I can assure you, not a single person in the audience dozed off to his beautifully melting music. The contrary was true instead; we were all transfixed and intoxicated by VCS’s music from his excellent 2017 debut album Revival. And now Vancouver Sleep Clinic has released yet another stunning escapade into the hidden chambers of our hearts, a gorgeously moving indie electro meets alt-pop ballad named Silver Lining. The single follows on VCS’s recent EP, Therapy Phase 01, which featured guest appearances by the likes of Raury and THEY.’s Drew Love. Tim Bettinson explains: “Silver Lining is about watching someone become too good for you. I’ve lost people I care about to the limelight before, and while you’re trying to be happy for them, sometimes you just miss the days when everything was so simple.” Find out about Vancouver Sleep Clinic’s 2018 tour dates, here.

jesse saint john stepped out of the shadows and into the limelight earlier this year when the artist, who’s written music for the likes of Brooke Candy, Sia, Camila Cabello, and Britney Spears, dropped a high voltage dance rock and dance pop debut named MOVE. That kinetic release is still moving us today, but we’d be lying if we didn’t say we’re wildly elated that the Los Angeles based queer pop artist has returned with his second single, FAKE IT. It’s an uplifting futuristic pop song with an instantly infectious chorus as well as heavy hitting coruscant synths. 

In jesse’s words, “‘FAKE IT’ continues the themes that I explore in my work of yearning for something more and searching for depth in a generation of shallow connections and instant gratification. Sonically I’m super inspired by fusing pop and bloghaus. It’s important to keep dancing while asking the tough universal questions. If you stop dancing life gets sad.” FAKE IT keeps us moving alright. It’s an epic anthem with hints of Charli XCX’s booming electropop and Twin Shadow’s synthpop trickling through its constitution.
