3. Ben William – “Lacklustre”
With a love for writing original music and playing covers, William leads with his heart on his sleeve with this heavenly guitar filled track that puts listeners in a trance as they listen to the story of heartbreak unfold. It feels as if he’s speaking directly to someone specific as the song progress.
Tender guitar strums and powerful yet tranquil vocals grabs us in to every word he has to say. He doesn’t shy away from sharing the emotions he feels, which is fueled by a passion he feels to spread the hopefulness of everything working out between the two individuals.
4. Nasty Lad – “Call Of The Void”
Emerging independent artist Nasty Lad represents what courageously working on your passion looks like with the release of his album Call Of The Void. The Austin, TX native challenged his prior combinations of dark themes and textures to include light airy vocals listeners will be able to appreciate.
Call Of The Void is exactly what the title suggests – a collection of songs inspiring listeners to turn the stories they hear into their narratives. Ten tracks blend elements of lo-fi and synthwave building up the melancholic emotions behind the indie bedroom pop genre.
5. Saudy Familia – “Only You And Me”
New York is booming with fresh talent ready to share what they’ve got with the world – including Saudy Familia, a Dominican-born composer, songwriter and drummer releasing music like “Only You and Me” that attracts young American and Latino audiences to the rhythms and sounds of the beautiful Caribbean.
“Only You and Me” is Familia’s first Salsa composition telling the story of meeting the love of their life and embarking on a journey of beginning a romantic relationship. Featuring Rose Stoller on vocals, it would be difficult to tell that this is his first attempt at creating a Salsa based track.
