Every week, Music News and Liberty Music look at the best new releases from emerging and self-releasing artists.
Alexa Kishner – ‘Still Yours’
After impressing so many with the release of her previous single ‘Hopelessly’ last year, emerging New York native Alexa Kishner has now returned to deliver her latest uplifting gem ‘Still Yours’. Blending bright and euphoric production with her sweet and sweeping vocals makes this new release one of her most captivating to date.
Beks – ‘The Thing About Us’
With her highly anticipated new mixtape ‘Beks 2021’ set to drop later this year, Australian alt-pop songstress Beks is back with her latest upbeat belter ‘The Thing About Us’. Taking nods from the glittering side of the 80s pop sound, this new delight showcases her as one of the more electrifying artists to emerge in recent years.
Gillian Heidi – ‘burnout’
Following a breadth of incredibly passionate music throughout last year, Boston-based singer and songwriter Gillian Heidi is back with her sweeping new release ‘burnout’. Using little more than a wistfully played piano and her own striking vocal performance, her newest gem looks to swoon and seduce us in equal measure.
DAP The Contract – ‘Why Would I Lie’
Having already established himself in the industry after recording with Mark Ronson and being featured on the soundtrack for the recent Disney movie Noelle, Nigerian artist DAP The Contrast is back to blow us away on his latest jam ‘Why Would I Lie’. With a cool and breezy rhythm running the length of this trap-inspired jam, his latest offering sets a bold precedent for what we can expect from him throughout the rest of the year.
Nikko Tank – ‘All Alone’
After spending the last few months releasing a breadth of warm and vibrant offerings, emerging artist Nikko Tank continues his ascent on the pulsing new release ‘All Alone’. Bringing together a mix of bold and melodic trap and RnB influences, his new cut sees him in a far more vulnerable light and gives us yet another side of his ever-impressive catalogue.
