Please do sit back and relax once again for the top five tracks of the week powered by Musosoup.
This week we have some exceptionally gifted artists from Atlanta to the UK, bringing the best of alternative and indie music.
Let’s check that out.
1-Sabiine – Hotline
Hailing from Atlanta, Sabiine is a 24-year-old singer-songwriter. Recently she released a couple of songs along with Hotline, which is part of her EP called Dragonfruit, the record is so superb that you can be listening to it on nonstop repeat for sure. Following up her great taste for music, Sabiine is known for her incredibly unique voice which is influenced by Ellie Goulding and Hope Sandoval, this has helped build a successful original blend all of her own. As an artist, Sabiine’s work already has achieved thousands of streams.
Confirming she is a rising star in the scene, Hotline is a song that sounds like an alternative pop dream produced by Tyler Gunz, who captured the perfect feeling, leading her directly to our first spot this week.
2- Plastic Glass – Going Away
Hailing from the UK, Plastic Glass is an indie rock band based in Sunderland, coming back to the music scene by dropping a brand new single called Going Away. The record is truly a “Saucy Banger,” according to our experts, filled with intricate lyrics and bold guitar lines, resulting in a stunning indie anthemic rock sound.
Doing a lot of buzz, the band is receiving the support of BBC 6 Music and BBC Introducing along with sold-out headline shows at remarkable venues. This four-piece is seriously going places and lands the second spot on our list this week.
3- GIYA – The Almost Real EP
Debuting her first record Gabriella and going by the stage name of GIYA is a singer-songwriter based in London. We have to clearly state GIYA is an incredible talent about to emerge in the scene with the release of the debut called The Almost Real. The EP has five tracks, including the hits titled Blood and Children, which was recorded in four years when she was evolving from adolescence to adulthood.
Leaving an indelible mark on her listeners, GIYA is making a presence among top pop songwriters in the country after the support of tastemakers like BBC Introducing. This is a good sign that she is on the right path and a fair enough point with no argument that GIYA deserves to be in the 3rd position on our list this week.
