Fresh Sounds [01/11/2019]

Fresh Sounds is back again with the latest releases by the best unsigned and emerging acts around the world. Make sure you add your favourite songs to your playlists.

Elley Duhé — VILLAINS

Elley Duhé returns with another spellbinding single titled “VILLAINS” — her first release of the year. She never misses, it’s another beautifully-sung song and her voice still sounds alluring. Hopefully she breaks through next year.

Flortcha Flow x Dante Alston — Would You?

“Would You?” is a fantastic collaboration between Flortcha Flow and Dante Alston. We’re looking forward to hearing more from the South Florida-based artist.

GRAMN — Freak Out

It’s been less than a month since London-based singer-songwriter GRAMN impressed us with her debut single “Write It Down”, she’s back with another stellar release titled “Freak Out”. She sounds more confidence on the R&B and pop-infused track.

Anuka — Wall To Wall

Dutch singer, songwriter and producer Anuka is back with another sultry track. “Wall To Wall” is the type of track that puts you in the mood. Celebrating a sensual and sexy vibe, she impresses on the soothing R&B record. Press play.

LYYN — Heat Wave

Chinese-American pop artist LYYN’s vocals are mesmerising on her brand new single “Heat Wave”.

“Last summer, I was inspired to write ‘Heat Wave’ on a blisteringly hot day thinking about how the slow burn of a new crush can be more exciting than everything that happens afterwards. Feelings that intense are intoxicating in a good way but can also make you sick to your stomach, especially if they’re secretly directed at someone you can’t have in real life. Also, I was initially nervous to write something “sexy” because it was out of my comfort zone musically, but I’m glad I pushed forward and had fun with it! A lot of art and pop culture unfortunately depicts women (especially Asian women) as fantasy objects or passive conquests, so it’s important for me to show how our desires and fantasies are as valid as everyone else’s.”  — LYYN.

Jhonni Blaze — Lil Favourite

Celebrity vixen Jhonni Blaze continues her growth as an artist on this bouncy R&B banger. Replay value.

Hana — Fantasy

Unsigned London-based singer-songwriter Hana is very new to the music scene. Her official debut single “Fantasy” shows her immense potential. One to watch for sure.
