If you’re looking for something folk and pop, give Neeley a try. She just dropped a new single ‘27‘.

“In ’27,’ I’m holding onto the innocence of youth, knowing that I may not be making the right decision as I navigate an untraditional relationship with an older man, all the while remaining optimistic and living in the moment until I know for sure whether or not this relationship has true purpose. This song is for anyone searching for a relatable voice to tell their own complicated story.”

Neeley, a folk-pop singer-songwriter from Yorba Linda, California, uses her lyrics to share personal stories. Her music is accompanied by instrumentation that creates an immersive experience, making the listener feel like they are in the same room with her. Over the last decade, Neeley has amassed an extensive catalog of over 300 songs, striving to discover her authentic voice. In 2015, she launched her publishing company, “Real Me Publishing,” which has landed placements with notable companies such as Amazon Prime and Ciroc. Neeley has worked with several artists, including Sadie Rose Van, Ava Kolker, and Laci Mercede, and producers such as Jamie O’Neal, “Joren,” and “Chilly.” Despite graduating early from Esperanza High School in 2019, she has already achieved numerous credits. Neeley is now embarking on a new chapter in her career as an artist, with the release of her first single “27”.

San Diego songwriter and producer Estella Dawn is making a mark with her unique fusion of genres and she won’t let you down with her latest single, “Just Me,” that showcases her sharp bars and reflective realness. The track starts strong with a memorable hook that combines melancholy and a catchy tune, and builds in intensity with switches in flow, pace, volume, and emotion. “Just Me” is a relentless and diary-style presentation of the ache of a broken relationship, with equal parts anecdote and relatability. With each single release, Estella keeps it unpredictable, creating original and unmistakable music. “Just Me” adds the appeal of snappy verse bars, immersive production, and mighty vocals to her soulful and intimate sound. Estella was a semi-finalist on New Zealand’s Got Talent and has over 25,000 monthly listeners on Spotify.

Madeline Megery released her debut single Vertigo. Fans of Taylor Swift will love. Madeline Megery is an artist who blends indie folk and electronic music to craft her songs. Her inspirations are drawn from the natural world and its soundscapes, as well as the lessons she learns during her exploration of the great outdoors. Madeline is often found hiking, surfing, and camping while also writing music that encapsulates the feelings, wisdom, and beauty that come from these experiences, as well as the broader human experience. In 2022, she signed with Nettwerk Records, and on April 14, 2023, she released her debut single, Vertigo. This track explores the mental labyrinth that one can find themselves stuck in, and how acknowledging that they are the creators of their maze empowers them to escape it.

Color Palette, an indie dream pop band based in Washington D.C., released their latest EP, “Pacing Like a Lion,” on April 14. The three-song collection takes the listener on a journey of being lost and found, ultimately leading to a sense of presence. Fans of M83, Bloc Party, and the Killers will love the EP. The tracks could easily fit on Spotify’s playlist Indie & Alternative Mix. Mind you, this is my favorite EP I’ve listen to this year released by an alternative rock act.

The EP’s first track, “Pacing Like a Lion,” (my personal favorite) explores the physical and emotional effects of life on the road for musicians. The rhythm-driven song features the pulse of bass guitar and drums, atmospheric synths, and a solo break that signifies the loss of control over predictable circumstances.

The EP’s second track, “Lightbulb,” has a spacey vibe, suggesting that simplicity exists within complexity if pursued, while The EP’s closing track, “Home,” that sounds very Snow Patrol, incorporates industrial sounds accompanied by a muddy chorus, but still memorable. Although the EP ends with questions rather than answers, the idea of home expands beyond a physical location to the people committed to the journey ahead. Color Palette’s collaboration with Enroute Records allowed them to experiment with new sounds that align with their signature electronic sound. With its timely themes and catchy earworms, “Pacing Like a Lion” is worth listening to.
