Every week, Music News and Liberty Music look at the best new releases from emerging and self-releasing artists.
The Dead South – ‘Blue Trash’
With the band set to become the first bluegrass band to ever headline Brixton Academy next year, The Dead South continue the support for their eagerly awaited new album ‘Sugar & Joy’ with the brilliantly energetic ‘Blue Trash’. Keeping their bluegrass roots as traditional as possible, this jangled and fast-paced return cements their reputation as one of the most exciting bluegrass bands on the planet.
Teenear – ‘Dolla Signs’
Having already delivered an unstoppable level of high quality RnB since her conception in 2015, Teenear now continues her prolific output with the release of her latest sultry slow-jam ‘Dolla Signs’. Channelling the bold yet swooning aesthetic of artists such as Mariah Carey and Aaliyah, this new effort sees her blend uplifting and sweeping production with a strong and impassioned vocal performance.
Plested – ‘The Least That I Could Do’
Having spent the last few years growing his reputation as a solid and skilled storyteller, UK-based singer and songwriter Plested now returns with his latest anthemic release ‘The Least That I Could Do’. Taking his cues from fellow pop crooners like Lewis Capaldi and Charlie Puth, his latest offering mixes piano-led melodies with thunderous percussion to deliver a bold and vibrant new belter.
Die Orangen – ‘Sonne’
After originally forming in their native Australia, brooding production duo Die Orangen recently decamped to the thriving musical scene of Berlin to work on their new project, and now preview their highly anticipated new album ‘Zwei Orangen’ with their pulsing new cut ‘Sonne’. With a sound reminiscent of artists like Nine Inch Nails and Depeche Mode, their latest release thunderously blends the world of dark and industrial electronica into an easily digestible package.
Saint Barae – ‘Power + Control’
Having already impressed us with the release of his stunning sophomore single ‘Boy From Mars’ earlier this year, Australian singer and producer Saint Barae now continues his beautifully sensual aesthetic with ‘Power + Control’. Following in the footsteps of artists like RY X and Toro Y Moi, this seductive synth-pop delight takes influence from the 80s synthwave sound, bringing a heartfelt light to its direction.
