Every week, Music News and Liberty Music look at the best new releases from emerging and self-releasing artists.

Tinx - FMLU

Another debut from another fascinatingly interesting Pop act. Growing up in rural Sweden, singer-songwriter Tinx moved to England to pursue her education and at 18 moved to London with a defined vision of Pop as her raison d'être. She excels with FMLU, a track that addresses the appeal and consequence of the ‘bad boys’ she’s crossed paths with in her life, with her expressive voice dancing across a summery Electro R&B instrumental.

RIYA - No Time

Stand out talent seems to get younger by the day, with Pop newcomer Riya stunning everyone with debut single No Time despite only being 15 years of age. Her syrupy sweet tones voice her frustration of lost love, combining compelling wordplay atop a glossy Alt-Pop sound that garners global appeal. Her efforts have been well received across the board and Riya no doubt has a long and bright future ahead of her.

Virginia Man - Desire

Virginia Man has spent the past fews years going through a series of evolutions as a band, opting for a consistent genre metamorphosis that garners a level of distinction by remaining free from genre boundaries. Latest cut Desire takes their early Folk influences and turns the volume up to 11 by incorporating the expansive and grand elements of Stadium Rock.

The Light The Heat - It’s Our Time

From humble beginnings making music for ads and films, The Light The Heat’s the vision rapidly outgrew its means as their work started to connect with their audience independent of its application. Ahead of their full length album releasing later this year, the band share the anthemic It’s Our Time which executes the modern love song aesthetic in a euphoric Indie Pop atmosphere that has uplifting appeal for any listener.

July Jones - Girls In Paris

With all eyes on her ahead of her debut EP, effortlessly cool London-based singer-songwriter July Jones shares Girls In Paris. The instrumental takes an eau-de-France concept by combining typically French themes with moody nu-R&B elements along with her trademark soaring vocals to achieve her distinct brand of melodic and dark take on Pop. With so much potential and skill already on the table July Jones deserves a spot on anyone’s radar.
