12 New Music Discoveries – July 2022

Scared – LANI

I could not post this list without a ballad, and ‘Scared’ by singer-songwriter LANI was the perfect choice. LANI released her debut EP ‘Parables’ in 2021, and ‘Scared’ is her second single since. Every aspect of the song, the lyrics, the vocals, the melody, is executed beautifully.

X – Undercover Pangolin

‘X’ by Norwich alternative group Undercover Pangolin contains an electrifying rock sound that hooks the listeners instantly. There’s a constant adrenaline rush that proves that this song would be incredible performed live.

Real Life – Jack River

Australian singer-songwriter Jack River’s latest single is the perfect summer tune. After the triumph of her 2018 album ‘Sugar Mountain’ and the fabulous line-up of singles since, ‘Real Life’ is the beginning of River’s new era.

Wasted – TeaMarrr

LA-based artist TeaMarrr is always looking to heal her listeners with her music, just like how tea heals people, and she does just that on her latest single ‘Wasted’. The power in TeaMarrr’s vocals and the catchy beat are only a few of ‘Wasted”s healing qualities.

BAKU – Tani Yuuki

Tani Yuuki has been in the spotlight ever since his performance for Billboard Japan and TikTok’s Next Fire edition in 2021. ‘BAKU’ is incredibly addictive, featuring an exciting fast tempo and a lively instrumental.

Reason – Galaxy Thief

Dorset quartet Galaxy Thief started off July with their brand new song ‘Reason’. This indie pop bop offers a fun instrumental, great lyrics and much more. The group have received many radio features, and sound as if they might be heading for the charts.

Trippin’ – Amelie Lens

Belgian music producer and DJ Amelie Lens has released her EP ‘In My Mind’ this month. The whole EP is spectacular, but ‘Trippin” is arguably the song that stands out most due to its unusual sound and mystifying fading effect on the vocals.

Suki – Eill

Eill – the writer behind hits sang by NEWS, Taeyeon and EXID – has released her single ‘Suki’; a fresh melody to show off her silver-toned voice that can bring out any and every emotion the lyrics lead it to.

Live Without You – Wild Youth

Irish pop group Wild Youth’s single ‘Live Without You’ is a heart-warming tune with a chorus you won’t forget. The band have treated their fans to two singles this year as follow ups to ‘Forever Girl’, their 2021 EP featuring their song ‘Next To You’, which gathered over 3 million streams on Spotify.

Love Don’t Cost – Cashma

‘Love Don’t Cost’ by Georgian born musician Cashma has a very enchanting feel to it. Cashma’s high notes are to die for, and add to this enchanting feel along with the angelic effects in the background.

SUNDANCE – Alon Mylo

Singer-songwriter and producer Alon Mylo has just released his debut ‘SUNDANCE’. The singer traverses across different genres to bring about his own sound. He also has synesthesia (so do I!) and visualises ‘SUNDANCE’ as cyan, hence the really cool cover art.

Expert In A Dying Field – The Beths

‘Expert In A Dying Field’ by New Zealand four-piece The Beths contains articulate lyrics and euphonious guitars, all lead by flawless vocals. Everything syncs so perfectly with each other, all while the sing asks deep questions that revert back to the abstract concept of love.
