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

VCATION – ‘Stairway To The Sun’

Having spent the last few years working with the likes of Martin Garrix, David Guetta and many more, Swedish dance-pop duo Michel Zitron and John Martin aka VCATION have quickly built a name for themselves with a flurry of diverse singles and now return with their latest effort ‘Stairway To The Sun’. With a nod to their bold and energetic influencers, the pair have opted for a more downbeat aesthetic as they channel the flow of artists such as Empire Of The Sun and Snakehips.

The Mercy Stone – ‘The Here And There’

After returning last year to deliver their highly praised sophomore LP ‘Above The Towers’, The Mercy Stone are back once again to share their latest single ‘The Here And There’. Bringing back that same genre-bending vibe of pop, folk and electronica, this new release sees the outfit deliver a rich and vibrant new single, filled with tight grooves and a freshened feel.

Tep No – ‘Breathe, Be Happy’

With an impressive catalogue of music to date, which has so far amassed more than 300 million streams worldwide, Tep No returns once again to shed these winter blues with the wonderfully luxurious ‘Breathe, Be Happy’. Taking on his usual lo-fi dance-pop sound and merging it with smooth and silky guitar hooks gives the track a bold and exciting feel that almost leads it towards the pop-rock sound of The 1975.

Nirob Islam – ‘Westside’

Originally finding his voice under his writing pseudonym SHY Nodi these last few years, Stockholm-based singer and songwriter Nirob Islam has now stepped out from behind his guise and returns with his latest offering ‘Westside’. Following on from his bold and impactful single ‘Busy Making Plans’ at the end of last year, ‘Westside’ looks to continue that same groove-filled and atmospheric touch he adds to all his music.

Aaron London – ‘Life Don’t Stress Me’

With a catalogue of tunes stretching back years and exploring numerous musical directions, London-based singer Aaron London has found his voice as a smooth and soulful crooner as he delivers his new cut ‘Life Don’t Stress Me’. Sitting somewhere between RnB and hip-hop in its style, this new release evokes a feel-good aesthetic that will leave you dreaming of lazy days under the summer sun.
