We are back with our New Release Friday playlist. Check out the full tracks and reviews below!
Mike Posner | “I’m Not Dead Yet”
Music superstar, Mike Posner just released a new track, “I’m Not Dead Yet.” He proves it in his fiery new single that offers soaring violins, a contagious drum beat and acoustic guitar. He said in a statement of his new song, “There is a sadness in beauty and a beauty in sadness.” This has an insanely catchy melody. Make sure to add this one to your playlists.
The Maine x renforshort | “Box in a Heart”
The Maine teamed up with renforshort for a new track, “Box in a Heart.” What an impressive song. Not only is the melody contagious, but it pairs well with the vocals. These are the type of vocals that just cut through and almost demands your attention. They do a great job at showing off the vocals, all while never losing the energy of the track. The production is on point. All in all, it is a strong performance that deserves to be added to your playlists.
Jake Adler | “One And The Same”
Jake Adler has proven himself in the ever-changing music landscape with phenomenal success. He rose to prominence under the moniker “Adler XCVI” with his hit singles “Tired Eyes”, “Something I Said”, and “Believe in Love.” Adler just released a new track, “One And The Same.” He is such a talented artist. I love when an artist releases an acoustic/piano based track. This pushes the vocals to the forefront of the song and takes all of the focus. He has such a beautiful voice. His tone and range is something that can’t be taught and deserves to be heard. Make sure to add this one to your playlists.
KID TRAVIS | “DIAMONDS”
We have featured KID TRAVIS quite a few times. Now he is back with a new track, “DIAMONDS.” One of my favorite things about KID TRAVIS is that he always puts his voice at the forefront of the track. He does that exact thing here with “DIAMONDS.” It is such a well done song that perfectly showcases his voice. Definitely a strong performance that deserves to be heard. Make sure you add this one to your playlists.
Estella Dawn | “Winners”
Estella Dawn is becoming known for her unwavering confidence and boldly passionate delivery. Her music has proven a force to be reckoned with. Her style knows no limits, and across the globe her growing audience is celebrating that quality. Divinely striking vocals carve out a fiercely distinct identity, as this creative powerhouse continues to raise the bar for the future of modern pop. We have featured Estella Dawn quite a few times and now she is back with a new track, “Winners.” I love the retro/throwback of the song. She puts her voice at the front of the song, which is perfect, considering how strong her voice is. It is a vocal performance that needs to be heard. This song is definitely a Winner. Make sure to add this one to your playlists.
Seafret | “Everlasting”
We have previously featured Seafret with their single, “Running Out Of Love.” Now, they are back with a new track, “Everlasting.” It is taken from their upcoming EP Anywhere From Here, releasing on October 7th, and it tackles issues of how the internet and social media affects us and distorts the expectations and reality of how relationships work. The new track is really well done. The production is on point and puts the vocals at the front and center of the song. It is such a strong vocal performance, which is much needed in today’s music. Definitely a standout this week. Make sure to add this one to your playlists.
