Produced to perfection ‘No Question’ is a heavily textured and melodically layered track from the talented Jessica Jolia. Electro infused without losing the soothing nature of Jessica’s vocal tone, ‘No Question’ is true easy listening. Sit back, relax and enjoy.

The end of yet another week means it’s once again time to bring you some great new music.

A highlight in our diaries, there’s nothing we love more than bringing you some of the very best new sounds we’ve stumbled on this week.

Today we’re feeling the funk, and pulling together a line-up of energetic and grooving tracks to give you that Friday feeling.

Kicking off the list it’s familiar faces and talented sister group, Trio Minutes. This power-packed group of sisters have been on our radar for some time, carving out a name for themselves in the Electro-Pop scene. Combining a sound both modern and nostalgic the trio make a sound that’s truly innovative, intriguing and catchy. Latest release from Trio Minutes ‘Vampire Boy’ is another effortlessly grooving, ear-worm of a track. A punchy beat, bright harmonies and innovative electronic elements make for another stunning single. Trio Minutes continue to impress.

Summer may feel very far away right now, but Motion Sickness’ track Proselyte has us feeling the warmth of sunny days may not be so far away. Driving and atmospheric, this track is full of punchy hits, rising synths and bright as the sun vocals. Proselyte is a striking release that reminds us of huge names and summer anthem makers The Chainsmokers. Creating an Electro sound that’s heavy yet freeing, Motion Sickness is a truly talented producer. We can’t wait to see what he brings us next.

Next on our lineup is Synth-Pop mavericks Screams From The Sun with track Keep on Running. 80s inspired with a modern pop-punk twist, this London based duo are true masters of synths. Combining hefty drums with a softly gritty vocal style and nostalgia-inducing synth elements. Screams From The Sun truly bring something new to the table, emo meets 80s, pop-punk meets synth-pop, and we are HERE for it!

We’re rounding up our list with something a little smoother, Redwood’s Honey Sauce. Don’t be fooled, this Singer-songwriter still packs an absolute punch. Combining elements of Rock, Indie and Acoustic-Pop Redwood creates an eclectic soundscape of acoustic guitars and rolling drums. Redwood’s sultry and deep vocals are a true stand out in the world of singer-songwriters, an intense sense of power and drive oozes from track ‘Honey Sauce’. Motivating and moving, this track is a true stand-out number from Redwood.

London based singer-songwriter, Elyss Daya, has revealed her stunning new single ‘Limerence’ that is nothing short of beautiful.

Born to Filipino parents, but raised in London, Elyss grew up with a rich tapestry of musical influence and experience.

The young singer songwriter has already captured the attention of BBC introducing, Slanted Press and Radio Wigwam to name a few.

‘Limerance’ is designed to tell the tale of each stage of infatuation, from the uncertain, the unspoken and the fragility of emotion.

“Sometimes, it’s not enough to want someone for the way you think they are.”
