Good afternoon to you – or just adjust the greeting to whatever time of the day you are reading this. I’m so happy that you’ve come back to my blog, even though there haven’t been any updates over the past weeks (Wondering why? See here and here).
As it’s Monday, I have of course prepared another playlist for you – because Monday’s should be full of music and therefore it’s Songs of the Week time.
I went through the new releases of last Friday and the following six songs are the ones that pleased my ears the most. I hope they will do the same to you. So hit play and continue reading.
The first song is by Norma Jean Martine. She’s an American singer-songwriter and you might remember her song No Gold, which I added to the Songs of the Week some time ago. Her new single is called Still In Love With You and it’s a really nice soul pop song.
Prodigal Son by Rationale is probably my favourite of this week’s list. I love his voice and the song is so honest and personal. You can hear all the emotions in his voice, which is amazing. The melody is hooking and strong – it’s very beautiful.
French producer Møme has released his debut album and with it the new single Why Is It. For this song, he was joined by folk soul singer Merryn Jeann. She wrote the lyrics about fear, frustration and greed – topics that are, in her opinion, ever-present in our society and modern day politics. It’s a meaningful song with a great dancey sound.
Losing Time is the new single by pop duo Nosoyo. They are very talented musicians from Amsterdam, who are now based in Berlin. The duo describes their new song as a healing chant to their souls and it’s indeed very enthralling. It’s taken from their upcoming album Resonate.
Not a new release, but a new discovery of mine is Tibet’s There Is A Place. I just had to break the rules for this one. I found it so catchy and apparently I missed it’s release in September. If you like the song, make sure to watch the video as well – it’s very surreal!
The last one on the list is Damage Done by Kita Alexander (a funny first name for German speakers by the way). The small town singer songwriter from Port Macquarie in Australia released her debut EP Like You Want To last Friday and I quite enjoy the 80’s pop rock sound of it.
And that is it with new music for this week. Which one of the Songs of the Week is your favourite? Let me know – I’m very curious.
Have a lovely day!
