Eddie George – Magic
Propelled by palm-muted guitars and run through with well-mannered electric folk-pop vibes, ‘Magic’ is an immediately spellbinding tune. If you’re setting up a springtime playlist, give this track some serious consideration – and keep an eye on Eddie George’s Instagram page for future live shows and EP updates (including his latest single ‘How Much of Your Heart Is Left’).
Elena Ramona – Electric Love
On her latest EP Foreverlution, ACM alumna Elena Ramona successfully experiments with densely-layered electro-pop, promoting empowering messages in the process. ‘Electric Love’ is a winning slice of thick, funky, and bass-driven synthetic disco, something to get you dancing no matter which night of the week it is. Prepare to press repeat repeatedly, and check out the full EP to experience ‘Electric Love’ alongside four other bangers.
Ilianna – Sensational
Having showcased her exceptional vocals on The Voice, Ilianna continues to soundtrack her fans’ nights in with ‘Sensational’. Before listening to this track, head to the shops and pick up some scented candles and whatever else you need to set the tone for a relaxing evening. Visit Ilianna’s Instagram page for more information about her future musical adventures.
Tara Flanagan – Tear Apart
Fans of Submotion Orchestra will instantly fall in love with Tara Flanagan’s recent stunner ‘Tear Apart’. Powerfully emotional vocals, moody electric piano, and an unexpectedly heavy beat blend with perfectly-mixed guitars and cinematic bass, adding up to an utterly addictive pop experience. Look out for Tara’s new single ‘Doing My Best’ on April 26th, and keep up to date with her work through her Instagram page.
Daisy Phillips – Love Isn’t Made to Last
ACM Creative Artist student Daisy Phillips has mastered the art of stripped-down songcraft, penning this bare-bones tune with an artisan’s ear for detail. Clear, plaintive, wistful and melancholic, ‘Love Isn’t Made to Last’ will stay with you even after a single listen – although it’s unlikely that you’ll stop there. Gently building, peaking, and falling away toward a serene finale, this is the perfect reason to follow Daisy Phillips on Instagram, and look forward to her next release.
