This week’s edit is full of grooving tracks to get you and moving and motivated ahead of another lockdown weekend.
Let’s kick off with Friends From Enemies from Arcade Skies. This utterly funky track has an old-school feel, electro infused and full of movement Friends From Enemies has an 80s Electro-Pop style to it. Punchy percussion, rhythmic synths and some innovative vocal samples make for a truly atmospheric track from Arcade Skies. This one is guaranteed to give you that weekend feel, energetic and bouncy Friends From Enemies has us feeling like we could conquer the world.
Next up it’s Time Machine from Riley Whittaker. At just 16 years old Riley might just be the youngest artist EVER to make it on to our Fresh Hit Radar list. Time Machine is a grooving Alt-Pop track, heavenly vocals complimented perfectly by sharp guitars and rising synths make for a hell of a track. Riley Whittaker is a singer-songwriter bursting with talent, her smooth vocal delivery of emotive lyricism making for power packed singles. The talent of Riley Whittaker is comparable to a huge name in music, Taylor Swift. Keep your eye on the rising star that is Riley Whittaker.
Third on the line-up is guitar driven track ‘Monsters’ from Andrew Bradley. This track has a truly feel-good vibe, bright guitars, gentle percussion and some effortlessly smooth vocals from talented Andrew. ‘Monsters‘ has a soothing and soft sense of groove, moving fluidly like a lullaby to the listener. With heartwarming word-smithery ‘Monsters’ is a truly perfect and subtly beautiful Acoustic-Pop single.
Rounding up the list it’s Annie Elise with single Open Eyes. Ambient and charming, Open Eyes is a truly anthemic Electro-Pop single. Something about Annie Elise is intriguing, her deeply texture and layered instrumentality is contrasted perfectly by her stripped back yet stunning vocals. Open Eyes is a genre-bending track combining elements of Pop, Electro and even a hint of R&B. The single draws us into the curious musical world of Anna Elise, and we never want to leave.
