Diplo & Damian Lazarus – Don’t Be Afraid (feat. Jungle)
Coming off the release of a forthcoming Diplo album is this sweet new collaboration between Diplo, Damian Lazarus and Jungle. In which is another hit from his Higher Ground label, which saw the previous release of one of the best music videos of 2020 “On My Mind“. Although, this new song, it has left Eat This Music with some great Empire of the Sun and PNAU vibes.
Speaking on the release of the new single, Jungle say that they met Diplo in Los Angeles a few years back and got chatting about working together. “We sent him a few ideas that we’d been cooking up and he took a melody and worked it in this banger,” they continue. “We’re really happy everyone else can enjoy it now too.”
Purple Disco Machine – Playbox
Following on from their highly addictive (pun intended) single, ‘Hypnotized’ in April 2020, Purple Disco Machine have returned with ‘Playbox‘ – the 4th single to be taken from his sophomore LP – a groovey, sci-fi epic of exploration, and automative aesthetics. Great work!
Sam Mehran – LOUNGY
This song is all about the instrumentals, but also the visuals if you’re looking for a hypnotic, psychedelic voyage.
Rest For The Wicked – Bones
Akin to what was stated above, this new song’s strongest characteristics are the instrumentals, vocals, and visual portrayal.
Cassie Dasilva – Unsolicited Contact
“Unsolicited Contact” is the freshes taste of Cassie Dasilva‘s debut EP (July 23), which sees the Canadian pop artist showcases a collection of songs that focuses on relationships and explores both dealing with a breakup and finding love, through the six tracks.
Half Waif – Horse Racing
Half Waif is the project of New York-based artist Nandi, and today she has given fans more of what they like about her, with “Horse Racing”, a song that was actually written during the early stages of the COVID-19 pandemic. “I started writing ‘Horse Racing’ in an Airbnb in Brooklyn that week in March 2020 when everything got really real,” Half Waif reveals about her new song. “Alone in an unfamiliar apartment, as an unseen force took over our lives, I was struck by how much of a wake-up call it all was.”
‘Horse Racing” is the latest single from her forthcoming album ‘Mythopoetics‘ (July 9).
NOGA – The Alchemist
After years of touring the world playing for others, NOGA has rebranded herself and launched The Alchemist – a short collection of songs. Inspired in part by Paulo Coelho’s classic mysticist novel of the same name, The Alchemist, and its title track namesake follows NOGA’s experience of untangling life’s great dualities: dreams and reality, light and dark, known and unknown, self and other.
Eamon McGrath – Cannonball
‘Cannonball‘ is a very soothing and delicate song that explores more than a simple reflection of the dichotomies that create the constant turmoil of the modern world. With Cayley Thomas lending her vocals on this track, Eamon McGrath‘s latest offering is actually a hartfelt, ode to the Americana-focused aspects of musical influences, in particular taking inspiration from Eamon’s admiration of psychedelic country, from those of Gram Parsons and Lee Hazlewood.
Jade Bird – Now is the Time
Happy to join whatever cult Jade Bird is trying to get me to join with this song, and listen to her forthcoming sophomore record “Different Kinds Of Light”, all day every day.
