It's Monday all over again, but don't you worry about this new week. You can get it all started by taking a listen to a bunch of great new tunes that you'll find on our latest #MusicMonday playlist!

"Outsiders" - Against The Current

NYC rockers Against The Current might have just put an end to the promotion of their Gravity EP, but they’re already back with a new tune. "Outsiders" is quite different from their previous cuts, as it relies more heavily on pop and serves as one of those throwback-to-the-early-00′s pop-rock gems. Its upbeat and feel-good melody bursts into a major chorus with some over-the-top vocals to go by, making it extremely anthemic and sing-along-ready.

"Number One" - GL

Up and coming Australian duo GL, formed by Graeme Pogson and Ella Thompson, has returned to the scene with a fresh tune, "Number One". This one serves as a disco-tastic extravaganza that delivers all kinds of vintage electro-funk vibes and invites you straight to the dancefloor. The quirky synths go wild in its upbeat production and those playful female vocals are the perfect match for the melody.

"Comfortable" - LAUV

We first met LAUV with the impressive "The Other", but the NYC newcomer has now dropped his entire EP Lost In The Light and a track called "Comfortable" is the obvious stand-out. The laid-back beat and synths surround the addictive simplicity of the melody which slowly but steadily builds into a massive chorus hook. Exceptional, passionate vocals and wonderful lyrics go ahead and put the cherry on top of this delicious cake.

"Player" - Tinashe

We were pretty sure Tinashe would become a household name ever since her major debut with "2 On" and she has yet to prove us wrong. Her proper Joyride lead single "Player" is basically the next step into superstardom, as she wanted keep her urban sound but cross over to pop as well and has achieved it big time. The track's trippy electro-R&B production slowly builds into her most radio-friendly banger to date with one hell of a catchy chorus.

"Sweet Lovin’" - Sigala

Bruce Fielder a.k.a. Sigala managed to top the UK charts with "Easy Love" and is now back to do the same with a new single, "Sweet Lovin’". The tropical-influenced house-pop gem serves as an massively energetic uptempo with an incredibly uplifting melody. The accompanying soulful vocals courtesy of a big-voiced lady compliment the production beautifully and make this one even catchier than the producer’s past hit single.

"Whispers" - Phutureprimitive feat. Kerli

Estonian superstar Kerli has returned to the scene by joining her forces with SF Bay Area producer Phutureprimitive on a brand-new dance tune from the latter’s brand-new album, Searching For Beauty In The Darkest Places Part 2. The 6-minute-long "Whispers" features a really interesting electro-pop production with captivating beats, that creates a dark atmosphere for the songstress to lay her significant vocals on.

"You’re Good But I’m Better" - Kill J

Straight from Denmark, Julie Aagaard a.k.a. Kill J follows the release of "Propaganda" with a brand-new single and it might just be her greatest delivery yet. The experimental production of "You’re Good But I’m Better" is a dramatic, indie-flavored electro-pop affair with a repetitive, shout-y chorus and some complex lyrics, sung perfectly in an intricate style by some exceptionally extravagant vocals.

"In Time" - Talos

Eoin French a.k.a. Talos is a multi-talented Irish guy that made his way to the scene last year but has only now returned with a brand-new track, "In Time". With a minimal, laid-back yet dreamy arrangement of instruments in the atmospheric production, it’s totally taking you away; the crooner’s emotion-heavy, soft-as-butter vocals do the most for this track and mark him as one of the most promising newcomers to the scene.

"Cara Mia" - Annie

Norway couldn’t be any prouder of producing an artist like Annie and the songstress’ return further proves that point. Once again, she’s joined her forces with British hitmaker and casual collaborator Richard X for some quality dance music. "Cara Mia" is the first sample from her Endless Vacation EP  and serves as a laid-back kind of house-pop gem, with an ethereal melody that’s seriously flirting with some tropical vibes.

"Swear Like A Sailor" - Tep No

It’s not like Toronto-based producer Tep No got us used to upbeat tunes, but you’ve never been more thankful that he’s more into slowing things down. "Swear Like A Sailor" is yet another laid-back deep-house piece, filled with some melodic guitars and his own hazy vocals. The smooth and ambient electronic production is so euphoric that it feels magic and makes the song a great sountrack for a chill-y weekend.
