March has been mad for more reasons than just basketball, and we’re here to share those reasons with you! Each month, we round up our favorite new song releases in a Spotify soundtrack feature for our fans. Whether you like sad boy music, hip hop, indie, alternative, or a little bit of twang, there is a little bit of something for everyone in this collection. Alycia Lang, New Luna, Kat Saul, Good Fuck… And it’ll just keep growing from here, so check back regularly throughout the remainder of the month for more new gems!
This month has already been super packed. With SXSW, the announcement of every tour and festival for what seems to be from now until eternity, and throwing ourselves at a few shows in between, we feel like we should be taking a nap. But this month is still so full of vim and vigor — especially with the Spring Equinox at our feet. Featuring Holy Pinto, Fatherson, VanJess, K.Flay, Kero Kero Bonito, A Choir of Ghosts, Scott Lavene, and more, there are so many new visuals to share with your inner circle. So here’s another round of amazing videos that came out this month. Feel from to take a look now, but remember that we update our YouTube playlist throughout the month, so there might be some newbies to glean over the next few days as well!

Pop/rock musician Natalie Lynn has released a sparkling, fun track as her debut with “One”. Starting with upbeat synth and incredibly invigorating percussion, Natalie’s vocals are introduced amidst a cloud of cotton candy sound, strength and vulnerability dripping from her lips. The bridge brings with it more 80s and 90s influence, and we’re fully on board with the freeing, incredible feeling it brings out in all of us.
Natalie Lynn describes the track like a rollercoaster. “Pure excitement and vulnerability. The feeling like you might just be on the top of the world.

The Head and The Heart have announced their new album Living Mirage will be out May 17th, and leading up to this release that have debuted a new track titled “Missed Connection”. Containing a smooth bass line, heavenly vocals and harmonies, “Missed Connection” holds a little bit of a different sound from the rest of what The Head and The Heart has had to offer, according to drummer Tyler Williams. “A lot of the beats on that song are quicker, and there are high hats that were never in our music before”.
With that being said, “Missed Connection” still has that feel that we have grown accustomed to experiencing from TheHead and The Heart. This means a perfect combination of alternative, pop, and indie-folk, creating another hit for the six musicians. This upcoming album suggests that this will beThe Head and The Heart’s best work to date. Member Jon Russell has stated proudly that, “this is literally the most work we’ve ever done on an album,” and it definitely shows in “Missed Connection”. Let’s hope for more of the same when “Living Mirage” releases on May 17th.

“Roll With the Punches”, the new single from Prep Rally, is a synthy pop track full of fight and perseverance. The message is exactly what the title suggests. This single will be featured on Prep Rally’s upcoming EP “Head Rush”, which will be out April 2.
The upbeat piano and chimes in the background create a positive vibe to support the lyrics. The electronic duo based out of Denver is able to create an environment within the track that suggests when one is down it does not always have to be sadness around them. Unfortunately, most will give up, and even listen to sad music to drown their feelings. Not PrepRally. They believe in picking yourself back up and dealing with whatever is thrown your way, and this single supports that.
Make sure to keep an eye out for the upcoming EP “Head Rush”, and check out Prep Rally’s website at http://www.preprallymusic.com/.
