UV Rays – Flowerhead (Submission)

Brooklyn-based band UV Rays shares their latest track about insecurities and beauty; it sounds like television theme show music (Friends-meets-90s-Grunge).

L’Impératrice – Matahari (Submission)

Iridea – Centaurus (Submission)

Ruthie – What Kind of Woman (Submission)

Marton Juhasz – The Curve (Submission)

Synonymous with an evening of dinner on a yacht, Marton Juhasz provides the sexy smooth vibe this Sunday afternoon. If you’re looking for a calming experience ahead of the Super Bowl at 6:30 this evening, here’s your chance to tune into the award-winning drummer’s outstanding performance.

UPSAHL – Drugs (Submission)

How to-the-point is UPSAHL’s new record? As if it is the continuation to Brampton singer Alessia Cara’s sleeper hit ‘Here’, the young singer-songwriter knows that honesty is the best policy. Describing the reasons we all attend social gatherings, the new Arista signee lets it be known that she just came for the drugs, or what she refers to as “the realness” in her explanation of the concept. She doesn’t want to have pointless conversations, where name-dropping takes over. She doesn’t want to be “seen” a socialite, either.

Motak – Won’t Go (Submission)

How many of us are afraid to face ourselves? Well, a seventeen-year-old duo from Chile, Motak, take a headfirst dive into in the music industry with their emotive debut.

This song is about the fights we have inside our head, those fights that are only us against us, thoughts against thoughts that often confuse us and do not let us be calm. Many times we are ourselves who lower our spirits or makes us sad just by thinking when sometimes nothing really happened. This song is for those people who think too much because they are like that or they have disorders. Thinking a lot can be dangerous.

Zanibar Aliens – All I Need Is (You) (Submission)

Take a wild and trippy ride with Zanibar Aliens, a Portugal-based quartet with the seventies style Rock. Their new song will make you believe that you are the only thing they need. Beware, you might get caught up.
