Simen Mitlid – This Time (Submission)
From Oslo, Norway, Simen Mitlid brings you his captivating, state-of-the-art debut album called “Everything Is the Same.” The second song on Mitlid’s album called, “This Time,” is a pleasant song that opens with his subdued, soft, but alluring vocals supported by an effortless bass line and exuberant melodies played on an acoustic guitar. Although it appears to be minimalist at the beginning, the song isn’t minimalist at all. The song undergoes an increase in tempo after a women’s vocal are introduced into the mix. Her vocals supported by electric instrumentals and hand-clapping crescendo until the song diminuendos and fade out. “This Time” is a wonderful addition to any playlist, and is highly recommended.

Fans of The Rolling Stones, Nirvana, The Strokes, and The Beatles can rejoice because you’ll love “Raw Evolution” when you hear its infectious electric guitar and drum harmonies. It’s got a repetitive hook that’ll have you bobbing your head up & down while chanting “Raw Evolution!”
Lauran Hibberd – Eliza (Submission)
What does the world look like when you’ve come of age on a small picturesque island off the southern coast of England? At just 20-years-old, Lauran Hibberd, a native of the Isle of Wight, is telling us a tale about her own experience with consciousness. Eliza is Lauran’s consciousness. She’s “The little voice we all have in the back of our minds,” according to Lauran. The song is pleasant and has a catchy chorus. While you listen to her lyrics, you might even reminisce about conversations that you’ve had with yourself when you were making an important, potentially life-altering decision. ‘Eliza’ is a gentle reminder that we have to learn to interpret our internal dialogue.
Chloe Bodur – Glory (Submission)
On Chloe Bodur’s song “Glory,” you’ll hear melodies that are common in the Jazz, Soul, Hip-Hop and Pop genres fused together to create a sound that is authentic. On her debut single called ‘Glory’ Bodur modulates her vocals throughout the song. She effortlessly transitions from high voice to low voice. As she sings using passionate harmonies, her vocals are supported by fervent guitar riffs, riding atop of ambient arrangements and melodies.
