nadia vaeh, “holidazed & confused”

It’s the holidays, so we’re all thinking about family and togetherness. (For the most part… and we understand the aversion as well, perhaps, sometimes.) And sometimes — if we’re being honest — the holidays make it way more difficult for people to keep their shit together, for lack of better terminology. When you’ve experienced heartbreak, loss, tough times… this time of year can be heavy.

Nadia Vaeh is feeling lonely in new track “Holidazed & Confused”. The cheery soundscape is magical and deceptive, as Nadia sings of the emotional torture of missing someone important during the holidays like a pop queen.

If you’re looking for a tranquil soundscape, decorated with smooth, Swedish vocals, then Alec Baker‘s “Lava Pool” is next to throw on your short list. (Or just trust us and add it to your “vibes” playlist for the season.) And if you’ve ever been in a situation where you lose track of time because you’re so enveloped in conversation and revelry, or the eyes of another, then this song will speak to you in ways indescribable.

Pop this on and get lost in that winter love.

Pop artist NoMBe creates soul-tinged electric tracks that keep us on our toes. We were so thrilled by his full-length release last spring (They Might’ve Even Loved Me…), that we had been chomping at the bit a tad more than usual for this new single. Luckily, “Paint California” is out now, and provides the right vibe for a relaxing autumn afternoon, enjoying the crisp air with friends. The first single from his upcoming sophomore release, “Paint California” is a smooth track with just the right amount of throwback feel.

Raise your hand if you’ve also been waiting with bated breath for an update from the HINDS camp. The collective — a foursome that hails from Madrid — has been creating fun, pop-tinged tunes to bop to for quite some time, but this is their first release of 2019 and we are 100% here for it. Hazy, dreamy, fun — as always — with a bit of edge and a real affinity for making life sound adventurous.

Check out the track below, and don’t forget to let us know what you think over on Facebook!

It’s been quite the year for powerful female vocalists. We’re totally on board, and it doesn’t look like a trend that is going to let up anytime soon. Take fresh Norwegian songstress HALIE, for example, with her new track “Circling”. Equal parts mysterious and beautiful, this song really takes you to a dark, oftentimes emotional, place. Her immense talent is palpable, as she is just gaining her footing in the industry. This song is simply one of a handful of singles she has released in the past. Let HALIE’s vocals put you in a trance today by putting the track below on repeat.
