Top 10 #4

It might be challenging to sort through everything available and choose which songs are worth listening to. We’ve done the legwork for you and prepared this list of the top ten songs you should be listening to right now. Check them out below and let us know in the comments whether you agree with our choices or if we missed anything.

1) Kita Alexander – Ocean Blue

Kita Alexander, an Australian surfer girl, dropped out of school after discovering she could make enough money playing pubs.

The Brisbane-born, Port Macquarie-raised singer-songwriter used Google to locate a manager, who then introduced her to producers for Lana Del Rey, Sia, and Empire of the Sun, among others.

Fleetwood Mac, Joni Mitchell, Cat Stevens, Tom Petty, and Patti Smith influenced much of her musical approach, while polished production gloss accentuated her pop sensibility.

She recently released a beautiful new tune titled “Ocean Blue,” which is the ideal summer music for beach days, first kisses, and long nights. A strong track by a talented songwriter.

2) OX – One Step Away

OX may be located between the 90s grunge and current rock tones. Their signature is hard riffs, melodious choruses, and catchy melodies.

They have therefore established their own identity, which may best be defined as modern-post-grunge. Interpersonal interactions are handled on various levels in the songs.

Simon Ochs, a vocalist, guitarist, and composer, created the band OX in 2015. Max Siegmund, the drummer, and Niklas Reinfandt, the bassist, knew Simon from their time together in the prog rock band “Fire on Dawson.” Nadir Zee, a guitarist from Karlsruhe, completed the lineup.

Following the success of past releases, the band is now working on a new EP that will be released in October 2022 and will contain the new tracks “Real to You” and “One Step Away.”

The band from Karlsruhe has evolved musically, but they are far from finished.

3) YAZ – Anymore

YAZ is a 19-year-old North West London singer-songwriter. Her debut single, Mr. Valentine, was inspired by her partner, whose middle name is Valentine.

She recently debuted a stunning music video for her sophomore single, “Anymore,” directed by Wonderbeats and The Six.

‘Anymore’ is a moving narrative about a young lady who regularly rides past her ex-housing, housemate’s wondering what it will be like to meet him again.

The music video genuinely puts these words into clips that capture both happy and sad events, creating a wonderful link with the lyrics.

4) Mercer – Strangers

Through her accessible and honest songs, singer-songwriter Mercer Henderson hopes to foster community and bring people together. Mercer, who was born and raised in San Francisco, has been immersed in music since an early age.

She began in musical theater at the age of 13 after being inspired by iconic female artists such as Lady Gaga, Dolly Parton, and Amy Winehouse.

At the age of 14, she published her debut song, “Bittersweet.” She traveled to New York City as a 19-year-old to attend the Clive Davis Institute at NYU, which opened several avenues for cooperation with her contemporaries.

Mercer has released Strangers, a fresh new track influenced by artists such as Tate McRae, Lizzy Mcalpine, and Gracie Abrams. She aims to find the perfect balance of catchy choruses and honest storytelling that will have everyone listening to her songs on repeat!

5) Marshal Herridge – A Day Too Late

Marshal Herridge is a jazz bassist from Vancouver who now lives in Montreal, Canada.

He has shared the stage with Andre White, Kirk MacDonald, Joe Sullivan, Kevin Dean, Al McClean, Remi Bolduc, Dave Laing, Lorne Lofsky, Peter Bernstein, John Scofield, Donny McCaslin, Dick Oatts, Pat Labarbera, and Brian Dickinson, among others.

At McGill University, he is now pursuing a master’s degree in jazz performance. “Chapter One,” his debut album, pays homage to his inspirations Scott LaFaro and Paul Chambers.

“A Day Too Late” has been released after being on the shelf for a long time and being several days late as a result, while on a pensive Winter holiday a few years ago, he wrote the music to this one in approximately 20 minutes on a crummy nylon guitar at his folks’ mountain home in Osoyoos, British Columbia. 

6) G Herbo – “Drill” feat. Rowdy Rebel

G Herbo, sometimes known as Lil Herb, is a Chicago drill artist who recounts his experiences in coarsely textured, urgent, and often painful detail. He represents his city’s South Shore community, notably the Terror Town neighborhood.

The rapper born Herbert Wright has been active since the early 2010s and featured on two tracks off Lil Bibby’s 2013 LP Free Crack. The next year, Common, Young Chop, and Earl Sweatshirt approached him for verses, and he released his first two mixtapes, Welcome to Fazoland and Pistol P Project.

Wright later signed with Cinematic Music Group and made his debut there in 2015 with the mixtape Ballin Like I’m Kobe, which was named after a buddy who was slain two years earlier. Wright made an appearance on Lil Yachty’s hit “Up Next 3” the following year.

G Herbo chose to build an even more vivid image for his fans by releasing the music video for “Drill (feat. Rowdy Rebel)” off his most recent project 25, which he titled 25. As they flew over the mountains of 808s, AZAE Production created a three-minute film for Chicago and New York’s celebrities. G Herbo and Rowdy Rebel’s video for “Drill” struck the ideal combination of business and casual.

7) The Howlers – Nothing To Lose

Desert Rockers from London The Howlers have gone on to achieve widespread critical praise for their broodingly passionate and aggressive live performances, swiftly establishing themselves as one of the UK’s must-see bands and receiving backing from tastemakers.

The Howlers, a well-known British rock band, have released a new track titled ‘Nothing to Lose.’ The music, which is stylistically inspired by Motown sounds, combines nostalgic soulful tones into a contemporary and lighthearted rock composition.

“I wanted to write a track that had elements of soul sprinkled throughout and to capture that energy that soul music conveys to the listener, but in our own unique way. The track is about exactly what the title suggests, going for broke so to speak. ‘

We were always told as kids if you want something make it yours. Things don’t always go your way but as long as you keep trying, what have you got to lose? Because the fear of failure is already failure there’s no two ways about it.” Completes Adam Young.

8) Kelly Vargas – Sympathize

Kelly began singing and playing guitar to her favorite music at the age of 12 while growing up on Long Island, New York.

Her parents exposed her to classics from the 1970s and 1980s, but it was the 1990s R&B, Pop, Alt Rock, and Hip-Hop era that influenced her creativity and love of music the most.

Not everyone listens to music for the words or meaning it contains, but Kelly Vargas places a special emphasis on this. People who appreciate Electro Pop will enjoy this song if they listen carefully and slowly wander across the infinite expanses of sound fields.

Kelly Vargas’ new song “Sympathize” is a lovely mix of indie pop and Latin music. The music blends pop beats with a somber indie mood, as well as English and Spanish lyrics. The combination of all of these elements adds to the song’s appeal.

9) Georgia Lines – Faith

Georgia Lines is a New Zealand singer-songwriter who has won the hearts of her fans, the attention of the music business, and the attention of local and worldwide music media.

Her strong vocals, the 80s, and 90s-inspired R&B-sprinkled pop compositions, and compelling live performances – which have ranged from glamorous dresses to fun spontaneous crowd-surfing – hit all the right notes.

Georgia continues to release new songs that she collaborated on with award-winning producer Djeisan Suskov, who has previously worked with BENEE, Matthew Young, Mitch James, and LEISURE.

With its crunchy 80’s synthesizers and layers of infectious lead guitars and vocal choruses, Georgia Lines and Joseph Farris’ track ‘Faith’ derives its musical inspiration from Prince. The song, co-written and produced by Joseph Farris, discusses a common conflict in relationships, where stubbornness may frequently come in the way of the required change.

10) FCG Heem – “Closer”

FCG Heem, who hails from the harsh neighborhood of Shallow Side in Fort Lauderdale, FL, translates challenges into soaring melodies and captivating lyrics. When his father brought home a karaoke machine when he was three years old, he discovered music.

He painstakingly created a unique flow, citing 50 Cent as a favorite. In 2018, music took a serious turn. After being fired from his job at Walmart and becoming a father, he began uploading tunes to Soundcloud, beginning with “This Year.”

He formally tells this story on his upcoming debut project, led by the singles “Haha” and “Peace and Positivity,” after accumulating 3 million views and 2 million streams independently and receiving the public endorsement of multiplatinum luminary YFN Lucci as well as NFL stars Eddie Jackson, Dalvin Cook, D.K. Metcalf, Jerry Juedy, Calvin Ridley, and Lamar Jackson.

‘Closer’ was first teased on Charlie Sloth’s “Fire In The Booth” freestyle series (through Apple Music) and has since earned over 100K views. Furthermore, the song comes on the heels of FCG Heem’s last hit, “Not Lit,” which featured Loe Shimmy.
