On April 5th, David Quinn releases his first full-length, an incredible collection titled Wanderin’ Fool. While we wait with bated breath for its arrival (soon!), his latest release – “Cryin’ Shame” – is a simplified, bluesy, country track that will leave you absolutely reeling. Admits Quinn of the track: “‘Cryin’ Shame’ is one of the older songs I wrote on this record but I always come back to it. It is really about falling for a wild woman, which I know from experience, and how quickly it all goes downhill.”
Though it premiered in February with the album announcement, the song has lingered in our minds as one of the best to welcome spring with. After all, aren’t we all wild women? 😉

“Flow” – the new single from Moglii‘s upcoming EP – displays all of electronic artist’s talents and sounds. The introspective lyrics about being “in your Flow” depict one being so in sync with another person that they are basically one with their rhythm. The single makes you want to dance, with a fast paced electronic beat and constant ebbs and flows (no pun intended). Moglii had this to say about the conception of “Flow”:
I wrote “Flow” two years ago during a profoundly formative trip to Tenerife. We camped in the middle of nature and woke up every morning at the sea – it was a surreal experience, seemingly detached from time and space, made even more magical by a special encounter: I fell in love there and put that flow I experienced with this girl into a song. It’s about getting to know each other, the deepening of the relationship and the natural lightness and ease that underlined it all.
With the release of “Flow”, Moglii will begin touring throughout Europe, as we all wait in anticipation for his upcoming EP. You can keep up with Moglii on his socials listed below.
A gorgeous string section lures you effortlessly into London-based power punk musician Hana Piranha‘s new single “Silk and Poison”, released to celebrate new album Waiting To Burn. The song unfolds into a rough, guitar-driven beauty, a cacophony of crashing cymbals, and loud, proud vocals. Just as the title insists, it’s the perfect blend of silk and poison… much like this incredible songstress.

Eighteen-piece Brooklyn-based soul pop collective Model Citizen recently released their new single “Magic Trick”, a high profile track riddled with crashing cymbals, insane guitar riffs, and loud, proud vocals that make the single that much more decadent to rock out to. We’re particularly fond of this track for its horn section, though the intricate layers of instrumentals are absolutely mesmerizing, as it seems to be for most of their incredible music.

The Next Life is out this July. Keep up with Model Citizen here.
Parisian indie pop collective Orouni recently released their new track “Former Lorry Driver”, and it’s the gamer-friendly, upbeat single that just might pull you out of your “first half of the week” rut. Good news? Their accents are palpable, which is perfect for francophiles. The song itself is hopeful as well, as it is about a man who was told he only had six months to live and survived his own cancer scare.

Partitions is out April 19th. Keep up with Orouni here.
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.
