12 New Music Discoveries – December 2022

Take You There – Chetna

Up and coming US pop artist Chetna released her upbeat electronica song ‘Take You There’. She delivered the song amazingly, and her drive to inspire her listeners is shown here.

Spirals – Alas de Liona

Splitting her time between her Californian home town and the Scottish capital, Alas de liona has been uploading her music to Spotify since 2020. The vocals on ‘Spirals’ express emotion so powerfully yet so delicately. Not to mention the calming yet melancholic instrumental undertones.

Prove It’s You – Luke De-Sciscio

After his numerous plans for 2020 had been put on hold thanks to the worldwide lockdown, Bath-based artist Luke De-Sciscio pushed through this and the other trials that were to come. He is now on his eleventh album release, and one of the singles ‘Prove It’s You’ has this beautiful balance of tranquility and a nostalgic kind of sadness.

Back Again – The Kurfew

After the release of several singles this year, early 2000s indie rock inspired band The Kurfew are back with a December melody. You can hear the thought they put into every aspect of ‘Back Again’. The vocals, tune and instrumental are all of high quality, and work together so well.

On Your knees – Presley River

Usually acoustic folk artist Presley River has just released a song more in the realm of indie pop. But you wouldn’t know this is not the musician’s prime genre, considering how catchy and enjoyable a listen ‘On Your Knees’ is.

I Could Be king – Bill Fever

As apart of Bill Fever’s third EP ‘III Weight’, the musician has provided a fantastic track entitled ‘I Could Be King’. The electronic texture is next level and often mysterious. Admirably Fever fulfils the whole almost six minute track splendidly, too.

Lucii – Le-Lilia

Twenty year old singer songwriter Le-Lilia tells the story of a girl who desires to be older than her age. ‘Lucii’ has a freshness to it, and a relevancy instrumentally and melodically. The artist definitely knows her audience and caters to them perfectly, but you can also tell she really enjoys the music she makes.

You can listen to the song here:

Anoetic – Drew Charron

‘Anoetic’ lives amongst the fifteen tracks of ‘Archives’, Drew Charron’s second album release. It’s an instrumental track, where Charron has put together some amazing sounds that allow you to fall deeply into the music. Entrancing is probably the word.

You can listen to the song here:

LOVE IS TRAGIC – Damien Owono

Behind the incredibly soothing tones of his voice and dream pop feel to his songs, Damien Owono has an introspective element to his music. ‘LOVE IS TRAGIC’ may be self explanatory, but the rest of the lyrics tell a great story with connotations of realisation and reflection.

You can listen to the song here:

alone – Babebee

Babebee’s track ‘Alone’ has a hyper pop, hyper rock maybe, feel to it if I had to pin a genre to it. Netherless the elaborate twists and ultra modern sounds are enough to turn the head of anyone. And amidst it all the vocals generally have a soft tone to them. The balance is admirable.

You can listen to the song here:

Golden – Shiv

I knew ‘Golden’ by Shiv was going to be such a blissful song just from the melody and harmonies of the intro. But throughout the tune it gets better and better. It’s the small things, like the gradual shift in vocal tone, the occasional piano note, that emphasises its beauty.

You can listen to the song here:

Fading Fast – Big Society

This Manchester four-piece decided to end their busy year full of singles with their EP ‘A Quick One, While We’re Waiting’. And within that came a cool song called ‘Fading Fast’. It’s crisp wintery guitar is what drew me in, but maybe it’s the fascinating lyrics or ongoing catchiness for you.
