This week’s #5NewTracks list consists of Heather Jayne, Me Not You, Anatii and more.
Heather Jayne – The Power (Submission)
The levels are loud. According to the lyrics of the song, the devil owns her and states she is special. Like BANKS and Lana Del Rey, the nineteen-year-old British singer-songwriter Heather Jayne sings over sultry instrumentation. What more could you want? Jayne’s song might scare you into waking up.
Me Not You – Everafter (Submission)
Chillwave is the best wave. The New York City-based duo, Me Not You, released a record confronting unnerving silence and avoiding each other. Personally, it is a record—on time—for me. I’m not speaking with half of the people who live at home. Sometimes, it is for the best. Listen to ‘Everafter’ from the group’s forthcoming EP, ‘Reckoning 2’. It’s the best track to play during your morning-to-afternoon regimen.
Anatii – Thixo Onofefe (Submission)
Did you see me tweet about Xhosa trap music recently? Yes, ‘Thixo Onofefe’ is one of the songs I had in mind when I said the following. It is our first submission from South Africa. If you aren’t a Xhosa-speaking person, you can enjoy it the same. How many of you could understand Young Thug during the first pass? Add the Anatii and Big Les For Real-produced track to your breakfast playlist. You’ll burn off the oatmeal immediately.
NOVAA x LO – My Splendor featuring Austin Paul (Submission)
As a hairy individual with rapid hair and nail growth, the words for ‘My Splendor’ grabbed me right away. If you are in a violent relationship, or you have been in one in the past, you can understand what the artists mean when they say the following.
My Splendor shows the moment when love turns into madness when you get addicted to someone else and lose control of yourself. It’s about a destructive relationship that survives based on an obsession. Loving and adoring are two different things that are mistaken very often.
Hear the latest track from the two, now. It’s the right fit for a chilly morning.
Double A – Ready featuring Gritty & Phillip-David (Submission)
I imagined that the sampled vocals in the beat are what would keep me awake. It reminds me of my safe place: Houston, Texas. Also, it doesn’t hurt that the recording artist—Double A—doesn’t have a story to tell. Hear it now.
Izzy Icon – Wonder If I Wrote This (Submission) (Bonus)
If Izzy Icon’s ‘Wonder If I Wrote This’ was my ringtone, it would take me out of my slumber. There’s enough double-time bass in the Philadelphian rapper’s track to disrupt tranquillity. Play it now.
