Another week has just begun and we know most of you wish Monday had a face so you could punch it, but you should probably lighten up and chill a little. To help you do that, PopWrapped has once again collected all the latest music gems in another #MusicMonday playlist.
"Ruins" - RYDER
Up and coming L.A.-based artist RYDER first caught our attention with "Pretty Little Gangster", and is now back with another single "Ruins". This time around she hits hard with a pop sound and sweet vocals, but a more sentimental tone. Her rendition is fragile as she sings the emotional lyrics on top of the ballad-esque electronic production.https://soundcloud.com/thisisryder/ryder-ruins
"Vampire" - Lazyboy Empire
We might not know anything about Lazyboy Empire, but we do know that good music comes with the name. "Vampire" is an incredibly quirky tune with a playful production and lyrics that mess around with the Halloween creeps. With both male and female vocals on board, it's the saxophone solo bits that shine here.https://soundcloud.com/lazyboyempire/vampire
"Kamikaze" - MØ
After the endless success of massive summer hit and Rihanna reject "Lean On", MØ once again joins her forces with Diplo on her brand-new single, "Kamikaze". This one takes the sound of the duo's previous smash and slows it down a little, as the production keeps the horns and tribal elements going, but is rather spacey and laid-back.
"Now You See Me" - Felix Snow feat. CYN
Felix Snow is back with a brand-new tune, a collaboration with CYN called "Now You See Me"and only further proves that he's a master of electronic productions. This one is exceptionally quirky and its percussion even flirts a bit with a more urban-esque side, as the songstress lays her beautiful vocals on top of the minimal yet complex production.https://soundcloud.com/felixsnow/now-you-see-me
"Breathe Life" - Jack Garratt
From writing and singing to playing most of the instruments, London-based Jack Garratt does it all. With his debut album Phase on the way, new single "Breathe Life" starts off slow and the snapping gets it to some old-school funk, before synths later come in to make this an electronic extravaganza.https://soundcloud.com/jack-garratt/breathelife/s-CUIt6
"Me, Myself & I" - G-Eazy feat. Bebe Rexha
With his sophomore album When It's Dark Out out in early December, G-Eazy enlists Bebe Rexha for his brand-new single "Me, Myself & I". The rapper makes sure to set the urban mood as he throws his hip-hop verses, paving the way for the songstress to take the lead on the chorus and deliver the simplistic yet infectious pop hook.
"Prey" - The Neighbourhood
Californian band The Neighbourhood will be dropping their new album Wiped Out! at the end of this month and have now unveiled new tune "Prey". Despite the bubbling beats, it's the indie-rock production that stands out, alongside the hazy vocals that make the track utterly dreamy.https://open.spotify.com/track/11zxaHJhTnkfv3XoNAxog1
"BBBlue" - Olivver The Kid
With his brand-new EP The Boy Who Cried Wolf now out, Olivver The Kid is pushing the track "BBBlue", which truly is a highlight of the set. With some string melody in the back of the song's ethereal synth-pop production, the crooner's vocals melt like soft butter on the electronic track.https://soundcloud.com/olivverthekid/bbblue_ov
"TALK ME DOWN" - Troye Sivan
There's no stopping Troye Sivan, as he's following the release of his WILD EP with his debut album, Blue Neighbourhood. The first sample "TALK ME DOWN" is a slow kind of pop ballad, including some sentimental lyrics and an extremely anthemic post chorus. Not the thrill that was "WILD", but an atmospheric and more sophisticated kind of tune.https://open.spotify.com/track/3i20WC7cWAITJjvVi9Yewf
"Lullaby" - Niykee Heaton
With a physique like that, it's easy to forget Niykee Heaton has way more gifts than just her good looks. Her new song "Lullaby" is here to remind us of her majestic music, as this one provides her with a strings-driven melody to emotionally sing on top. The track is some kind of acoustic and moody tune, sentimental enough to thrive in terms of affection.https://soundcloud.com/niykeeheaton/lullaby-niykee-heaton
And that's all for now folks! Make sure to come back next week for one more #MusicMonday playlist.
