I really like this indie electronic track Elephant Shows by Ida Hansson. She’s a Danish/Swedish singer, songwriter, and pop artist. She combines electro pop and r&b. I’ll be honest, the Swedes are always the trendsetters and ahead of the music curve. Heck, maybe they got the virus figured out as they reported no new cases with no lock down following the same trajectory as other nations that implemented harsh guidelines. Now check out Ida Hansson who I just added to KOAR’s Indie Invaders Playlist.
Have you heard Sad Girl Summer by Maisie Peters? It’s a cool track but in this case, the video gives the track justice. If I finish watching video it’s rare, but I watched this video more than once. Maisie describes herself as Emo Girl Pop. The 18 year old is based in Brighton and supported Tom Walker across his European and UK tour. Check it out.
South African/ NYC based Lee Cole paints the world pink with his new track Pink Dragons and also lands for the first time on Spotify’s New Music Friday (SA). The latest track is more happier than his previous heartbreak song I Don’t Wanna Wait which is still garnering thousands of streams a day. Pink Dragons sounds like a Ed Sheeran -Lewis Capaldi co-write, but it’s not. Here is a review of the song that’s worth reading. I’ve been saying for a while that this sad boy pop artist could be the next artist up to bat. We added the track to KOAR’s Indie Invaders Playlist. If you haven’t already, follow the playlist.
The TikTok countdown begins. President Trump said he would ban the Chinese owned TikTok and WeChat in the US in 45 days if they are not sold by their Chinese-owned parent companies.
Microsoft is in talks to acquire the app following a conversation between CEO Satya Nadella and the President.
Trump set September 15 as the deadline for TikTok to find a US buyer. The app will be shutdown after the date if a buyer doesn’t rise to the occasion.
Right now, the app has attracted the 40 year old mom that shows off her dancing skills after much practice. But what happens if the app is banned? Is this the end of the world? No worries, I’m betting Microsoft wraps this up with the help of the president. Hence, TikTok will be saved and the world hangs on for one more day.
But Instagram Reels is waiting for you, if TikTok does go dark.
Kings favorite clide is back with a new track release Fallin. The new track is strong and follows the song Lost that garnered over million Spotify plays. The Berlin-based indie pop singer-songwriter has a knack of creating songs that don’t initially jump out at ya but you grow to love to them. It’s like wine that gets better with time. The 20-year-old artist has 300,000 monthly listeners on Spotify.
