Extra Earworms: A weekend playlist for new artists

Instead of turning down submissions that don’t fit in any of our other playlists, we’ve decided to make a new one. It’s called Extra Earworms. It is a weekend playlist for the best new tracks/videos by new artists.



I’m just here for the fashion. A$AP FERG’s black angel-like jacket is to die for in this video. The song isn’t bad. However, the visual is what kept me interested in ‘REDLIGHT’. Watch it. Tell me that the jacket isn’t incredible.

Nikotene – How I Do (Submission)

Let me keep it simple. Let me show you what I do.

To show and tell, or to back up your statements with “receipts”, is something that most people in our industry celebrate. Let’s face it. Unfortunately, there are larger groups of people who don’t do what they say they will do than the others. I want to believe Nikotene is one of the people who doesn’t let others down with multiple false promises. All a woman can do is dream. Then, ask for you to stream the Drum & Bass producer’s sixth single, ‘How I Do’.

Agina – Backseat Lover (Submission)

I think I am really liking the women in 2019, like a lot. They know exactly what they want and that is a good thing because as a man I know nothing. Agina’s new song ‘Backseat Lover’ explains in a beautiful silky voice that she doesn’t want to ride shotgun she just wants to have fun, and I think this is the type of woman I need. I am putting this on repeat and gonna stare at my vision board. I need this in my life.

Mario Sterling – Sometimes (Submission)

Sometimes I feel like I need a girl. Like, I get all emo and start felling all cuddly and shit. I wanna get a bottle of wine, walk on the beach at sunset, and romantically stare into someone’s eyes while whispering sweet nothings. Are sweet nothings even a thing anymore? Well, that’s what I want to do and if I did I would put on ‘Sometimes’ by Mario Sterling to get me in the mood. Because sometimes I feel like someone and myself would make a great power couple then sometimes I just wanna watch reruns of Quantum Leap. Romantic, huh? (Thirston Howw)

Brenna Macquarrie (iamhill) – Give Me My Life Back

My last relationship had me feeling like I was lost when we broke up. Everywhere I looked I seen her. I never really got much closure with the relationship, which may be the reason I had my nose so wide open as my grandma would say. Brenna Macquarrie (iamhill) I think took my relationship and made an amazing song out of it. The song is called ‘Give Me My Life Back, which is fitting because I just want my life back. (Thirston Howw)

Little Birds – Little Bird (Submission)

Aside from the similarity of the name of the band and the title, there is a fire that emits from the track, so I had to share it. Stream the Gothenburg-based indie band’s record below. It is about “an exploration of an emotional soundscape that differs from its predecessor. The introductory riff is all but volatile, and the guitar solo feels almost like a contemplative afterthought. It ponders on the feelings associated with the difficulty of providing comfort to someone you care about.”

The Eyyes – Waiting for You (Submission)

Ghostly in its composition, ‘Waiting for You’ calls to the spirit in a way that most music doesn’t. Without a doubt, it is the words to the song. Plus, it’s incredible production that matches its intention and sentiment. Hear the Los Angeles Shoegaze duo The Eyyes’ song, ‘Waiting for You’ below.

Langi – KOTJ (Mufasa) (Submission)

Did you wake up this morning feeling like royalty? Well, Langi’s track ‘KOTJ (Mufasa)’ is all about being the man of the house, or the king of the jungle. Catch the island vibes, add it to your warm-weather playlist.

EyeOnEyez – Polar Bear featuring Gucci Mane, ‘Out Queens’ featuring Prodigy of Mobb Deep, and ‘Bruce Wayne’ featuring NYY Brim + Rich Lugar (Submissions)

We don’t know what EyeOnEyez looks like, but he’s managed to get verses from Gucci Mane and Prodigy from Mobb Deep. On ‘Polar Bear’, Gucci Mane raps about not going back to jail or drinking lean anymore, so we know it is a recent contribution. Prodigy’s verse on ‘Out Queens’ talks about showing people how we do it in New York, Queens, to be particular. ‘Bruce Wayne’ is a different style of production, catering to a younger audience. Hear the variant of production styles by EyeOnEyez below.
