Every week, Music News and Liberty Music look at the best new releases from emerging and self-releasing artists.
Teenear – ‘Free’
Having spent the last few years releasing a string of bold and impressive RnB-inspired singles that has seen her garner praise from the likes of Vibe and Billboard, Miami native Teenear now returns with the politically powerful ‘Free’. Inspired by the growing Black Lives Matter movement, ‘Free’ is an ode to the struggles that both the black community and protestors have seen accelerated in recent weeks through a lens of provocative and captivating soul-enriched instrumentation.
WaveIQ – ‘Tookie Tookie’
Having delighted us these last few months with a wave of fresh and vibrant hip-hop jams, LA-based artist WaveIQ has now unveiled his long-awaited new album ‘Arcadia’, featuring the previously shared banger ‘Tookie Tookie’. Matching familiar rap-inspired tropes with his own unique and pulsing flow, this new collection looks to set him apart from the usual riff-raff that has begun to dominate the commercial hip-hop world of late.
Keir – ‘Rose’
With a preference for big and anthemic offerings over these last few months, singer and songwriter Keir makes no assumptions of slowing down just yet as he returns with his latest belter ‘Rose’. Channelling more of that dark and progressive soul that he injects into everything he creates, ‘Rose’ sees him deliver a truly euphoric return that looks to follow in the footsteps of acts like Imagine Dragons.
Will Barradale – ‘In Your Mind’
Having already proven himself with a breadth of fresh and dynamic offerings over the last few years, London-based singer Will Barradale has now returned to share his latest energetic release ‘In Your Mind’. Produced by Sean Oakley, best known for his work with Kanye West and Frank Ocean, the new single blends a breakbeat direction with soft and sweeping overtones, giving this release a exciting and distinct feeling throughout.
Ariel Rose – ‘Somebody Loves You’
With a career that stretches right back to her childhood years, singer and songwriter Ariel Rose has been making a name for herself in the live music scene of Miami ever since, and now returns with her latest soaring single ‘Somebody Loves You’. Smothered in rich and glossy pop tones and produced by renowned producer Juan Francisco Parra, this newest gem sees her deliver a sparkling new anthem, showing off her incredible voice in the process.
