Iknow that a lot of people are pretty much excited to figure out who is the next big thing this week, the reason why we are back once again with the top five tracks of the week powered by Musosoup.
With the mission of recognizing some of the best tracks that come to us weekly, we have some strong messages on this showdown, which comes across from legendary musicians who already support the likes of Noel Gallagher and Adele just to name a few.
Let’s dive in tho!
- THE ROADSIDE BANDITS PROJECT – Sombre Circus Ft. Nell Bryden
Hailing from west London, The Roadside Bandits Project is dropping their debut single called Sombre Circus, which is part of their future debut album that’s dropping later this year. This brings us a little taste of what’s coming. The superband is formed by prominent musicians, including the legendary Steve Barney on the drums, over the years the guys already performed live with Annie Lennox, Jeff Beck, Mike and The Mechanics, Sugababes, and more. On bass is Mark Neary, who previously worked with several artists including Noel Gallagher, U2, Adele, Sting, and the list just goes on. The mastermind behind the project is Santi Arribas who crafts the guitars, keyboards, and programming for the track, the completion was set by inviting Nell Bryden to sing the vocal. Besides this stunning intro, the song talks about world issues geopolitically and socially speaking enough to be the first spot this week.
2. MIKE XI – GHOSTS
In our second spot, we got some California vibes from the rapper and songwriter MikeXI, who was born in Santa Cruz, but now lives in LA. He’s masterfully blending some alternative hip hop with pop and soul. Mike began to pursue his music career very early, now debuting his single produced by Vince Kottkamp, who previously worked with The Vamps and co-written by Kate Morgan, well-know through her work with Blackbeard and Chainsmokers. He is probably ready to take his place.
3. ARLISTON – Loud
Arliston is a trio from east London formed by Jack, George, and Jordi, the guys have been heavily supported by BBC Radio 1‘s Huw Stephens, making a kind of buzz with tastemakers, even with just a few releases out this band is showing they are heading the down the right path. The song called Loud was released last year by the label AWAL, bringing a decent alternative rock track, getting our 3rd spot this week.
4. MYSTIC WAXX – Tears Left To Cry
Mystic Waxx is a London based alternative artist dropping her new concept EP called Kayla, the sophomore record came to life with the support of British-Albanian producer Admir Hyka, the songs in the EP are heavily influenced by the likes of Pink Floyd, Portishead, The Knife, and Bonobo. The first single from the EP titled Tears Left to Cry is pretty much an enigmatic sound of indie alternative pop, fulled by a positive perspective when everything seems to be lost with no hope. This is the type of song you listen to while you are playing that hard game or facing a tough moment.
5. J-LINE – Redo
Hailing from New York City, the born and raised singer J-LINE is coming back to the music scene with an amazing mid-tempo song called Redo which was produced by the Top 20 Billboard chart talent Electropoint, who already has worked with Grammy-winning artists. Jay advocates the pro-LGBTQ community, recently he was featured in USA Today because of that, the song is about a redo with your ex-lover. The track has a smooth vibe with a strong hook enough to be at the 5th spot on our list this week.
That is it this week folks, be sure to follow up on socials and stay tuned in for more updates soon.
