Next up it’s Mattiechi with the aptly titled single ‘Smooth’. This grooving single is classic old-school R&B goodness, with an easy sitting beat some sultry vocals and understated harmonies.

Laid back and peaceful Smooth is the definition of an easy listening tune, pop this one on your playlist and feel truly tranquil.

Next up is psych-rock single Cafe from band Bad Chemicals. Driving and heavy this track is back full of punchy drums, gritty guitars and impenetrable vocals. Gloomy instrumental with a strangely cheery vibe make for the perfect equilibrium between light and dark. This track will have you up and moving in no time.

Rounding off the list is a stunning single and music video from the talented Araya titled Color Palette. Vibrant and animated this single is full of bright guitars, smooth beats and some gooey vocals. Araya is an artist that transcends genre, bringing a curious yet polished sense of style to the scene.

Bound is just the second single from Australian singer-songwriter Erika Ascenzo’s whose musicality and vocal prowess is astonishing. The track is full, with nifty baselines a punchy beat and glossy synths. Erika’s deep yet soft vocals are the icing on the cake to this delicious track.

Full of wonder- Lohrd Snohw is our artist of the month

Electronic, female singer, indie, News, pop, Pop Music, Review

The Pop Playlister team are excited to debut our latest feature, ‘Artist of the Month’, a space for us to share the very best talents we’ve discovered and put them on your radar. 

Our first Artist of the Month, and the best thing we’ve heard in July, is Lohrd Snohw. Now that name may sound familiar to our readers (and no we’re not talking Game Of Thrones), the talented Lohrd Snohw has made it onto more than one of our Fresh Music Friday playlists and has turned the Pop Playlister team into die hard fans. 

I was lucky enough to have a catch up with Lohrd Snohw (aka Cazzie) ahead of her latest release ‘Dogs’. Cazzie is a UK singer-songwriter whose childhood has taken her from the big smoke, all the way to rural midlands and beyond. Music has always formed an important part of Cazzie’s life, from writing her very first songs at just 11 to performing in local band scenes as a teenager, the 21 Year Old singer has a wealth of musical experience.

 Yet it is Cazzie’s recent releases that are the truest expression of her diverse artistry. Cazzie rightfully refuses to place herself and her music in a genre, an artist who draws inspiration and influence from far and wide; it is hard to box Lohrd Snohw in.

She describeS her music as deliberate, intentional and with purpose. Music with meaning, and a style that is truly authentic and raw. The words Art-Pop and Electro can be thrown around when discussing Lohrd Snohw’s artistry, but the best way to understand her genius is to listen to her music yourself. 

‘Dogs’ is Lohrd Snohw’s most recent release, an ethereal piece featuring Cazzie’s dreamy vocals and trippy electro inspired instrumental. Cazzie is full of originality and innovation, an artist not afraid to push the boundaries of sound and genre making her music truly new, fresh and exciting. It is artists like Lohrd Snohw that show most promise in what is undeniably an oversaturated musical market, Cazzie is a true stand out talent in our eyes. 

The rising star has an EP in the works, and plenty more musical genius to share with the world. The future is bright for Lohrd Snohw so watch this space.

It’s time for the Pop Playlister team to share our ‘Fresh Music Friday’ playlist, a collection of the best tracks we’ve found this week that you need to hear. The perfect way to end your working week and get the weekend started.

First up is Lohrd Snohw, with her track ‘I Don’t Know’. A soulful ballad featuring Lohrd’s truly mesmerising vocals. The UK based singer-songwriter creates powerful and emotive tracks, an independent musician full of raw talent and prowess. With musical elements reminiscent of indie, electro-pop and R&B Lohrd Snohw is a diverse talent and definitely one-to-watch for 2020.

Next is the punchy new single ‘Please’ from Foust. A guitar driven, rock infused track to get you pumped and ready for the weekend. ‘Please’ is a powerful first release for new band Foust, who formed in 2019 to combine their high energy, talent and unpredictability into an unstoppable force. With all the best elements of classic Rock, meshed together with modern influence, and some cracking falsetto Foust have given us one of the best rock releases this year so far.

Thirdly comes Grace Can’t Play Guitar, with tune ‘Narcotica’. This band oozes their Britishness, reminiscent of Brit-Pop’s glory days and bringing those warm nostalgic feelings. Grace Can’t Play Guitar conform to no genre, priding themselves on their fusion style and diverse influences. A feel good, easy listening tune to pop on your playlist.

Next we have Quincy with ‘No Stress’, a grooving R&B track with elements of Soul and Pop. Quincy is descendent from musical greatness, the biological son of Al B. Sure! And godson of Quincy Jones. Since 2015 Quincy has collaborated with stars including Tyga, French Montana and G-Eazy. ‘No Stress’ is a solo track for Quincy, demonstrating his talent and potential as a star in his own right. 

Happy Listening!
