Every week, Music News and Liberty Music look at the best new releases from emerging and self-releasing artists.
Malak – ‘Can’t Catch An Emotion’
After launching her career in 2014 with her debut EP ‘Alters’, a release garnered huge radio attention and more than one million streams online, Egyptian singer and songwriter Malak has now returned to deliver her latest sweeping single ‘Can’t Catch An Emotion’. With influences that range from a western alt-pop production to her own traditional middle-eastern upbringing, this new offering looks to showcase the honest vulnerability of being an Arab woman in these uncertain times.
Bye The Way – ‘Too Good To Let Go’
With a diverse range of influencers that include Red Hot Chili Peppers, Bruno Mars and The 1975, pop-rock outfit Bye The Way now look to introduce the world to their fresh and vibrant sound with their debut single ‘Too Good To Let Go’. With its glossy production and catchy hooks throughout, this bouncing new delight is set to be your soundtrack to this summer, whatever the weather.
The Mercy Stone – ‘Pale Moon’
Having already delighted us with a bold and exciting array of uplifting and euphoric dream-pop releases over the last few months, the Scott Grady-led project The Mercy Stone is back to entice with more of that blissful sound on ‘Pale Moon’. Loaded with hook-filled guitar riffs, soothing duel vocals and almost tribal percussion, this warm and inviting new composition brings even more levity to their soaring direction.
Mom Rock – ‘I Am The Same’
Despite only forming in 2018, Boston-based alt-rockers Mom Rock have already made some serious waves across their homeland in the US and are now ready to bring that blistering sound to our shores as they share their new jam ‘I Am The Same’. With a direction that has been compared to the likes of Cage The Elephant, Talking Heads and Catfish & The Bottlemen, ‘I Am The Same’ is the fresh and anthemic offering that many will be throwing their hands up to on the next lockdown-approved road trip.
SILnce – ‘I Could Be’
Despite already blowing us away with his pounding hip-hop jam ‘Maneuver’ last month, New Jersey-based rapper SILnce is back once again to deliver his next bouncing release ‘I Could Be’. Filled with a rich soundscape of stuttering synths and complex hi-hats, his latest offering delivers more of that excitable sound he has always looked to produce, showing us that he is already beginning to carve out his own place in the industry.
