It’s hard not to love Benchwarmer by Thoss. Why? It’s catchy as heck, unique and dare I say falls gently near Twenty One Pilots. It’s unconventional songs that find themselves on top of playlists and the radio charts.

South Africa is proving to be a hub for talent, which brings the buzzing 18 year old power pop vocalist to the forefront. Inspired by Adele, Sia, and Celine Dion — Felicity cuts right to the chase with her latest ‘Burnt Sugar‘ which is filled with catchy one liners and memorable hooks.
Born in Australia and having settled in Cape Town, she now splits time between Colorado and NYC. Having hooked up with producer Brian Kierulf (Mike Posner, Lady Gaga) she released the track Poison which has surpassed 100k streams on Spotify and the newly Burnt Sugar.
Both songs are about the same kind person: Someone you know who isn’t good for you, but you just keep going back to them notes Felicity. Stay tuned!
DRÆMINGS which is the creative project of Kimi Recor also comes with unusual backstory. Born on the outskirts of Munich, she discovered music listening to Ace of Base on a cassette tape. Having spent a moment in Colorado, she left for San Francisco and it was that time where she immersed herself in guitar, keys, bass, and drums and began playing around the local scene. But then NYC found her and so did addiction and with that, she returned to the west coast settling in Los Angeles with good results.
The indie pop queen wrote and recorded the five-song demo entirely on her own and Sumerian Records stumbled upon the demo’s Soundcloud page and offered her a deal.
The track Area 51 is about being in love with somebody who’s also a musician,” says Recor. “When you love someone who’s a traveling artist you always know that person is going to leave. It’s vagabond love. The two of you are never going to be in the same place at the same time for long. You let people go and you’re okay with it. I’ve always been with artists and had to accept they’re going to love their art more than they love me because I love my art more than anyone.”
The full length The Eternal Lonesome, will be released August 5th and the album was produced by Eric Palmquist (MUTEMATH, Bad Suns, Night Riots). Upcoming shows at the Echo in Los Angles on August 5th and September 7th in Portland at Holocene.
