Playlist: Songs You Need To Hear This Month (April '17)
Astrid S - Bloodstream
Following on from the success of 'Breathe', this month, Astrid S released 'Bloodstream', the next single from her forthcoming EP, Party Is Over, due out in May. Hitting a little harder than the air-y 'Breathe', the new single features the Norwegian singer adopt a more sing-rap approach.
Banks - Crowded Places
Moving Castle label members Manila Killa and AOBeats, released their joint single on Friday featuring the vocals of Shaylen. The new single is a fun, pop tune with inklings of Chainsmokers-esque production that would be worthy of a spot in the Capital playlist.
Boy Radio - Golden Boy
Brooklyn-based Boy Radio, is beginning to make his impact on the music world via the less traditional route for independent artists. Premiered on SLAY TV, the video is the first insight to the singer's Neon Romance project which the singer hopes will connect him "to the listeners who get me—the ones who discover me organically and develop a sonic relationship with me.
Mila J - Fuckboy
Having been in the entertainment industry since the early 90's, a good part of the past decade Mila J has been working and building her fan base with her smooth and silky voice. Following her split with Motown Records earlier this year, she released a 13 track EP entitled Dopamineand 'Fuckboy' is the ultimate Millennial kiss-off from the set.
Cathedrals - Try To Fight
Following the release of their comeback single, 'Don't Act Like A Stranger' last month, the New Zealand duo, Cathedrals, returned once again on Friday with 'Try To Fight'. The synth-heavy single comes with a catchy hook and packs enough energy that will fill the next venue the duo will play.
Panama - Hope For Something
Yet another band returning from a brief hiatus, Australian artist Panama returned this month with his return single, 'Hope For Something' - the first taken from his new EP, due out in June. The uplifting electronic pop single is, "about finding/seeing the positives in my life despite personal problems and past mistakes," Panama explains to Pigeons and Planes.
Lady Leshurr - Juice
From one bop to another, Kiiara has teamed up once again with Felix Snow after having produced one of 2016’s biggest and surprising hits, Gold. Continuing where her Low Kii Savage EP left off, the new single builds on her electronic trap-pop sound that Snow has been taking over the radio with, with Terror Jr., Era Istrefi, and Kiiara.
