Boston native Jenna Lotti releases the mid-tempo electro track Nervous. As way to cope with anxiety, Jenna began writing songs. Like any aspiring artist, the LA based singer turned to open mics, picked up the guitar, and recorded YouTube videos in her bathroom. Jenna’s mix of vulnerability and talent stands out from the crowded electronic arena. Jenna says, “It’s a song about the dark force of anxiety which has dominated my life since I was 10 years old. I’ve always used writing as an outlet because exposing my inner demons is cathartic for me and I hope for someone else who might listen and be suffering from the same thing.” Additionally, she was nominated for “Pop Act of the Year” by the Boston Music Awards in 2017 and was nominated for “Female Performer of the Year” by The New England Music Awards. She’s also opened for Hunter Hayes, and Dan+Shay. Give it a stream!
Look out for singer/songwriter Sierra Heuermann and her band The Radicals. She got to sing with indie icons Muse after submitting a cover song via a contest. Sierra notes, ” I sang “Starlight” with the band. Right before I was scheduled to go on, I was told that I would be singing alone, without Matt, and that the key was going to be lower than the recording, meaning I wouldn’t be able to use anything I had practiced.” She just dropped the electro pop track You Look Like My Next Ex which is pretty good and is garnering some blog love.

Check out the Brooklyn-based singer-songwriter Nola Wren. She released an EP Scream Into The Void, Pt. 1. that’s full of dark haunting electro pop songs. This is an EP that needs to be listened in its entirety for it to make sense. It doesn’t have a particular song that jumps out, whether that’s good or bad – I don’t know. The tracks were written during a chaotic time in her life. Nola tells Kings that she wrote songs in buses, coffee shops, libraries, my parent’s living room, my (now-ex) boyfriend’s bedroom floor. Primarily using Ableton Live and Logic Pro to craft her sound – she discovered electronic music and production in her college years. Give it a stream.
