Every week, Music News and Liberty Music look at the best new releases from emerging and self-releasing artists.
Máni Orrason – ‘Privilege Of Time’
Having already established himself as one of the most promising new additions to today’s 80s-inspired electro-pop scene, Iceland’s Máni Orrason now returns with his latest euphoric belter ‘Privilege Of Time’. Coupling traditional electronic production with a notably raw indie-pop backing, his newest single sees him adopt a similar vein to The 1975, bringing a uniquely uplifting addition to his ever-growing back catalogue.
JUJ – ‘Risk It All’
Having spent the last few months releasing a flurry of glossy and notable pop cuts, LA-based artist JUJ has now unveiled her debut EP ‘JUJ, It’s U’ and showcased it with the new single ‘Risk It All’. As the closer to her seven-track release, ‘Risk It All’ offers a more poignant angle to her usually high-octane direction. With little more than a piano and her own voice, she is able to display a bold and uplifting performance that explains why so many have been talking about her of late.
Dan Crossley – ‘Forgive Me’
With an already impressive run of singles that has included ‘Call Back’ and ‘Mind Games’ these last few months, London-based artist Dan Crossley now unveils the fifth and final preview of his new EP ‘Closure’ in the form of ‘Forgive Me’. Much like his work to date, ‘Forgive Me’ offers up a positive and awe-inspiring example of this young man’s talents, bringing together a euphoric side of pop with strong and emotional undertones to deliver a wonderfully bliss new release.
WITHOUT – ‘I Want You’
With a mission to incorporate a more soulful angle on the electro-pop scene, UK-based production duo WITHOUT now follow up their latest releases ‘Wanta Be’ and ‘Love Liike This’ with their newest summertime banger ‘I Want You’. Following in the footsteps of similar acts such as Mura Masa and Snakehips, the pair have combined sultry vocals, funky synths and vibrant melodies to conceive a brilliantly catchy dancefloor stomper.
RONA – ‘I Don’t Think I Love You’
With an extensive musical background that includes learning jazz flute, piano and performing in a choir, singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist is no stranger to melding genres together as she now returns with her new single ‘I Don’t Think I Love You’. Combining bold and honest lyrics with a euphoric and cinematic production sees the artist channel similar intentions as The Weeknd, adding a new dimension to the neo-soul scene.
