20 year old new comer Nina Chuba drops the impressive track Lips Shut. The track reminds me of DICTATOR by the latest buzz artist REI AMI which we have on our Indie Invaders Playlist. Repped by Mag Mgmt, the Hamburg electro-pop artist has received blog love and showing 360k total 2019 Spotify streams. Her backstory is that she started her career as a child actress before pursuing a path in music. She is currently working on her debut EP.
Watch out for Brooklyn based indie pop artist Lydia Ford. The 25 year old Ireland native just dropped the mid-tempo Talk, definitely worth a listen. Taking inspiration from the production of acts like Sigrid, Julia Michaels and Lauv – she has supported Delorentos on their “Bullet In A Gun” Tour. Garnering attention from blogs, the bedroom pop producer landed on playlists including New Music Friday UK, A Breath of Fresh ÉIRE, and Poptronix. Last year she wrapped up with 230K Spotify streams.
I’m really liking Gracie Convert and her newly released track Maybe. Think r&b meets pop. A regular on the London and Leeds live scene, she made some noise with her first track I’m Fine which got picked up by Spotify’s ‘Fresh Finds’ and ‘Fresh Finds Poptronix’. The London based singer-songwriter also picked up shout-outs from BBC and tastemakers like Ear Milk and Pop Culturalist. Give it a stream.
Los Angeles based Rachel Shaps drops the up-tempo Getting Over You (feat. Bellla). If you want to revisit Tropical House, try this track. Her grandmother is the legendary Eartha Kitt known for the 1953 recordings of “C’est si bon” and the Christmas smash “Santa Baby”, which were both US Top 10 hits. The 23 year old garnered attention from Pop Dust, Pop-Culturalist, and Naulda Mag.
New Zealand based RIIKI releases ‘High Heights‘. It’s a cool track and definitely worth a listen. The 20 year old indie pop artist worked on her latest track with producer Simon Gooding (Ed Sheeran, P!nk, Migos, Dua Lipa, Neil Finn). The new track follows her debut single ‘One Day’, which premiered on NZ’s hit radio network ZM, landing on Spotify’s ‘Fresh Finds’ playlist.
