Yonas’ #SummerMonDaze Continues

We already got into the great single and video for “You F#cked Up,” the first in the #SummerMonDaze series of single releases by the one and only Yonas. Since then, the New York artist has released two more, “Wait A Minute,” and most recently, “King Of The Summer.” They’re both killer tracks, unique in their own ways, but “King Of The Summer” is simply a masterful pop gem, a classic longing love song with a perfect hook. We’ll update this post as more tracks come.

Pre-order Late Cambrian’s New Album

Look, I think we’ve been very clear that New York’s Late Cambrian has been doing damn good things, so let’s get to the point. It’s been about three years since the release of their last full length, Golden Time, and since then, the band has morphed considerably from a catchy guitar rock band to a lean electro pop duo, who have released a series of carefully crafted singles and videos in the interim. Now, finally, Late Cambrian is readying the release of their new LP, Sweet Cambrian High, Vol. I & II. It’s available for pre-order now as part of a PledgeMusic campaign, and will be released on CD, cassette, and limited edition colored vinyl. So, if you like unique, infectious, and clever music – and we know you do – get to it now.

Chris Ayer, “Stay Another Night”

Los Angeles singer Chris Ayer just released a new single, “Stay Another Night.” It’s breezy, acoustic driven pop song perfectly suited for chilled-out summer nights. The intermittently pounding beat takes the track just outside of singer-songwriter territory and should help it find a home on Top 40 radio. In fact, “Stay Another Night” is already burning up the Spotify charts overseas. And just in time, since Ayer has been performing a series of dates in Europe, and will head to The Netherlands for a couple of dates in Utrecht on June 1st and Pinkpop festival in Landgraaf on June 5th. A video for the new single is forthcoming. In the meantime, listen below.

Pop Jam: Iman’s “Wishing”

Somewhere between atmospheric electro pop jams and dancefloor bangers lies Iman‘s brand new single, “Wishing.” The London-based independent artist has been best known until now for writing and recording with Ed Sheeran and Rudimental, and was also called into writing sessions for Kanye West. But her smooth and sweet voice is quickly coming to the fore, as she gains international attention, and this new single demonstrates why. The clever and precise production is subtle enough to pull off the trick of creating a mellow vibe for a should-be dance pop hit.

Meanwhile, Iman is in the midst of a tour funded by a grant from PRS For Music Foundation. Here are the dates:

“Supernatural” By The Love Elektrik

Nashville pop/funk band The Love Elektrik burst onto our charts just a few months ago, and have been featured on our radio show a couple of times already. They’ve now released their new single, “Supernatural,” a catchy, slow burner about which the band says, “We’re not 100% sure, but we think this song is about an encounter with a vampire stripper at an EDM festival. Listen and decide for yourself!” You know…that old chestnut. Listen below, and buy it here.

Viv And The Revival: “Faded”

Philadelphia’s Viv and the Revival have been on our radar for a long time now, and their progression as artists has been incredibly impressive to see. Viv Peyrat was already crafting sophisticated pop songs when, in 2012, he earned the opportunity on OurStage to have his winning track “Fire” featured in a campaign for the London Olympics on NBC. Just a few days ago he released a new single called “Faded,” and it finds Viv at the top of his game. The song has a great groove, driving but atmospheric, punctuated with acoustic guitars, and all glued together by Viv’s smooth and soulful vocal. He closes the deal with a delicious hook and a great lyric. Listen below.
