The Sukis – “Intimacy”

Hertfordshire-based alt-garage band The Sukis’ brand-new single is the power-packed “Intimacy.” The track covers themes such as rejection, nostalgia, loneliness, optimism and defeat while the group plays out hooky guitar parts, a jumpy groove and catchy melodies.

GREYSKIES – The Mind Is Like the Moon

Iceland native GREYSKIES fuses his alt-rock influences with a dark-pop underbelly on his new 10-track debut album The Mind Is Like the Moon. On the record, the artist showcases his slick songwriting ability while delivering hook-ridden melodies with grungy guitar riffs and relatable lyrics about his struggles with anxiety and restlessness.

Dillon Antony – “Not About You”

Indo-Canadian singer-songwriter Dillon Antony’s latest offering is his optimistic pop song “Not About You.” The track features a light-hearted arrangement and Antony’s smooth vocals as he sings about his life in Canada and his constant balance of being Canadian while holding onto his Indian roots growing up.

Tangerine – “See You There”

Los Angeles/Seattle indie-pop/dream-pop act Tangerine’s latest song “See You There” lays comforting and topical lyrics over a chill guitar-led beat. Comprising singer-songwriter and guitarist Marika Justad with producer and guitarist Toby Kuhn, the video for “See You There” serves as a response to Asian-American hate crimes which took place earlier this year. Justad says in a statement, “We wanted to shoot something in defiance of that feeling. So we asked some friends to help us create a cheeky and fun Asian girl gang. The video shows us occupying public space without fear or reservation, living it up in our trench coats, something that feels deeply important in this moment.”

Roxanne McDaniel – Real Woman EP

Tennessee multi-instrumentalist Roxanne McDaniel may be adept at dulcimer, bass, banjo and more, but she sticks to the simple singer-songwriter approach on her debut EP Real Woman. Across five tracks, McDaniel puts stories and experiences at the center of her lyrics, supplemented by easy listening acoustic guitar work. Her song “The Man” particularly came about from sheer frustration of living through workplace harassment, mental health struggles and financial constraints. McDaniel said online, “It felt like Hell all day every day. I hope this song resonates with anyone who feels like they have worked themselves to the bone, but never had much to show for it. I get it.”

YawnyBlew – R.I.P EP

Domican-American singer-songwriter YawnyBlew aka John Gonzalez has spent a few years working behind the scenes as well as on his own music in tandem, including a backing vocalist on H.E.R.’s “Hard Place.” Working with producer BlvkM0nd4y,YawnyBlew has now dropped his new EP R.I.P, blending hip-hop, pop and R&B that’s reminiscent of the more accessible moments of Frank Ocean, among others.

NUMAN – “Pushing the Factory Reset”

Bangkok-based math-rock and post-rock trio NUMAN splash about in wondrous fashion on their latest single “Pushing the Factory Reset.” Drawing from math-rock artists like LITE, the fist-tight rhythms and guitar tapping melodies Numan Naveed, bassist Job aka Rangsiwaht Yamkasikorn and drummer Off aka Jase Poonsumran build-up to an angsty, emo vocal movement, adding a bit of diversity of the track.
