Look out for Matt Taylor and the new track The Breath Within Your Chest which made it on Spotify’s New Music Friday. I like it, it’s different and definitely catchy and that was the goal for the 21 year old Brighton based singer songwriter – to write catchy tracks. The Irish singer is influenced by Julia Michaels, Tove Styrke and Max Martin and he has written for Ariana Grande and Charli XCX. Give it a stream on our Indie Invaders Playlist.
I rarely listen to rock but I kinda of like the track Bulletproof by Canada’s Sierra Pilot. I read that they blurs lines between hard rock and emotive pop music. I’m fine with that. Even though modern rock lost its footing in pop culture it still has the most loyal fans across the world of any major genre by a wide margin. If you’re a 90’s die hard rock fan you’ll like this alt rock act.
Watch out for Frida Sundemo and her new post breakup uptempo track Backbone. The track comes off the EP Sounds In My Head. Keeping it real as possible the Swedish synth pop artist says “I refuse to create and release just song after song and focus on getting them into the biggest playlist possible”. Can I get an amen? Give the track a listen on Indie Invaders playlist.
Popular fashion and beauty influencer Mia Sayoko turns to music and drops the track Apologies. Her latest track is birthed from pain. She notes, “Apologies” is about overcoming a controlling, manipulative, and abusive relationship. The 25 year old YouTuber was born in Okinawa, Japan, and started releasing singles in 2019. If you like the pop genre right now I can’t find a reason why you couldn’t get into some of her several single releases.
Good is good and bad is bad. The track Friend by Tyler Shamy is good. It seems like the Los Angeles singer-songwriter writes lots of songs and to land good ones you need to write hundreds if not thousands. He co-wrote the song Space Between for Disney’s Descendants 2 sung by Dove Cameron and Sofia Carson as well songs for J-Pop and K-Pop.
