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

Kae Astra – ‘Dreams’

As a staple of the Armenian-American music scene, Texas-based frontwoman Kae Astra now looks to establish herself with the release of her debut solo single ‘Dreams’. Taking influence from artists such as Kate Bush and Grimes, the singer has filled her first release with haunting melodies and a wonderful dreamlike soundscape that begs to be heard.

Chelsea Effect – ‘Tinseltown’

Having been born and raised in Canada but now residing in Venice, California, the frontwoman has taken inspiration from her new home for her latest single ‘Tinseltown’. With its bold and thunderous percussion, the singer has taken an ironic eye to the Hollywood scene with this anthemic and thunderous electro-pop delight.

Dan Crossley – ‘Mind Games’

With his highly anticipated debut EP on the horizon, the London-based singer now looks to continue his accelerating ascension with his latest single ‘Mind Games’. Taking influence from the RnB scene, he serenades us with his stunning voice, coupled with a strong and impassioned instrumentation.

Joshua Burnside – ‘The Good Word (Live At Elmwood Hall)’

Recorded at Belfast’s historic Elmwood Hall back in December 2018, this live rendition of his track ‘The Good Word’ brings out a more humbled and intimate perspective to the frontman’s usual sound. Taken from his forthcoming live album ‘Live At Elmwood Hall’, the Northern Irishman swoons and serenades the audience with his full and uplifting voice.

Tropic Harbour – ‘Softness’

With his new EP ‘Calm’ due out on the 26th April, Canadian chillwave artist and producer Tropic Harbour keeps us hungry as he delivers his new single ‘Softness’. Compared to similar artists such as How To Dress Well, the producer brings a smooth yet versatile style to his latest release, giving us a glimmer of some psychedelic influences in the process.
