Los Angeles singer-songwriter Axel Mansoor releases Father Time, the first single off the acoustic EP Somerset. The EP which has a classic sound was recorded in his bedroom studio with a $150 USB microphone and a DI for the guitar. Mansoor quietly made his debut in 2017 with the debut track Wasted My Love which eventually clocked over a million streams. With tracks like Out of My Head, I would place Mansoor in the genre blending category. Like Ed Sheeran, he could walk the path as a mainstream misfit. Give it a stream!
Good sounds coming from Northwestern Europe. The popular Norwegian producer ÅSN who has worked with artists such as Hanne Mjøen has teamed up with emerging singer Inga for the electro-pop track “Glass”. The fun upbeat track is about longing back to a time where things were less complicated, reflecting over how a love-struck a couple can be replaced by annoyance over small trifles in everyday life.

ELA Lindsey reveals her indie purism in both of her recently released debut tracks YCLMI and Healing Me Slow. Moving from Florida to Nashville was when the singer-songwriter began rooting herself in the music scene. With any true indie artist, both tracks are melancholic and reflective in nature. ELA notes “I didn’t realize it at the time I wrote it, but ‘Healing Me Slow’ pretty much sums up my life”. Because I had a traumatic childhood, and I’m human, I spent many years closed off, bitter, and hurt. I had to learn to open up, pursue healing for myself, and forgive. Check out it out!
California based singer-songwriter Denny White recently released the track Alone With You. Is it Dream Pop, Synthpop, Pop/Rock, Modern Rock, EDM? I don’t know. This is a record labels dream though. It’s faceless music that could find itself on any Spotify’s popular playlist. But if the music seems almost perfect, it’s because Denny White has been called to collaborate with heavyweights like The Fray, EDM producer Tiësto and OneRepublic’s Brent Kutzle. Check it out.
Canadian born singer-songwriter Susie Yankou also known as BARKLEY recently dropped the new track 3AM along with a music video. The LA/Toronto based singer cites electro pop artists Lorde, Charli XCX, and Tove Lo as influences. Featured on a flurry of tastemakers, ‘3AM‘ is a well crafted pop anthem that everybody can relate to. With lyrics like ‘Why you always chatty when it’s 4am? Thought that it was time to go, Barkley explains “You roll your eyes when they hit you up every Friday night, but you know you’ll probably have a magical time, until it’s over and they ignore you for another 6 days.” Check out the track.
