We’re back once again to bring you a striking line-up of new Music with our Fresh Hit Radar.

Today we’ve got some power-packed tracks to help you get in to the feel-good Friday spirit.

First up it’s Mildflower with gorgeous Synth-Pop track ‘Just a Boy’. This single is bedroom Pop at its very best, subtly groovy and electro infused ‘Just a Boy’ is a total ear worm of a track. Packed full with innovative instrumental elements Mildflower creates a truly curious and other-worldly soundscape. Listen below-

Next up is a power packed single from Motion Sickness ‘Ether’. Ethereal vocals sit over punchy pianos chords and a steady beat. ‘Ether’ feels full of mystery and just a hint of darkness, softly sweet vocals are contrasted by the track’s lurking and leering synths to create a threatening yet freeing soundscape. ‘Ether’ wouldn’t be misplaced in a James Bond film, intense and anthemic Motion Sickness establishes himself as a producer powerhouse.

If you’re feeling a little more angsty we’ve got a track for you. ‘Better off Meditating’ is a grungy single from Tamar Berk. Full of attitude and resentment ‘Better off Meditating’ has us feeling like we could take on the world and everyone in it. If you reminisce over the golden days of Pop-Punk you’ll love this one!

Ending on a sultry and soulful note we have Pavit Sanghera’s R&B single ‘Fake Love’. Pavit’s pure toned vocals will have you well and truly in your feels, not to mention those gorgeous runs! ‘Fake Love’ is just great R&B, reminding us of the soulful divas from the 90s, Pavit Sanghera has that nostalgic R&B style.

Happy Listening!

Multi-instrumentalist Harriet may be UK born and raised but the young talent oozes that enviable Nashville-style. Pouring true passion into her singles ‘Love Me Like That‘ is full of feeling. We’re strangely drawn to Harriet Rose, her warm energy and bright toned vocals have an addictive nature that leaves us wanting more. We’ll be keeping a firm eye on this one.

Electronic, female singer, New Music, New Release, pop, Pop Music, Singer-Songwriter, UK Music

One of Pop’s most exciting young talents Antonia Grace is back with more stunning music.

Ten year old phenomenon Antonia Grace brings us her first ever EP titled London Grace. The five track wonder-project demonstrates Antonia’s diverse style, vocal ability and songwriting prowess well beyond her years.

Having already received radio play across the globe, and acquired celebrity fans such as Depeche Mode’s Dave Gahan, Antonia is one of the youngest and most promising pop acts emerging on to the scene.

Latest release, London Grace, is Antonia’s biggest project to date. Astoundingly, every single track was written by Antonia herself, mixed by Marc Williams and produced by the talented Lemoyne ‘LA’ Smith.

Highlights from the London Grace project include Hideaway, a soft pop ballad full of bright guitars and Antonia’s purely brilliant vocals; Something He Said, a more electro infused track packed full of flowing synths, some driving electric guitars and a grooving beat; as well as Bad Story, a slightly darker Pop track with Antonia’s hauntingly beautiful vocals and some vivid story-telling. Overall, the debut album illustrates that Antonia is a versatile Pop talent who excels in many genres, styles and musicalities.

French-born and London-based, Antonia Grace is no stranger to stage and creativity, having ventured into musical theatre at the tender age of 5 and already performed in front of thousands.

Adaptable and multi-talented, songstress and actress Antonia Grace is full to the brim of creativity, talent and potential.

Recent ventures have seen Antonia Grace take vocal lessons from none other than Dave Gahan (Depeche Mode). Amazingly Depeche Mode are credited for inspiring the young Antonia to pursue music, having been taken to a gig at just seven years old that lit a fire in Antonia Grace to go out and make her own sound.

Exciting young talents such as Antonia Grace bring hope in dark times. Like a light shining through dark clouds, Antonia’s talent and potential is a true pleasure to watch blossom. We for one can’t wait to see what she does next.
