First up it’s Kitty with track 2020. 2020 comes off Kitty’s stunning debut album, a hauntingly beautiful 8 track project that sets her out as a dark pop princess. 2020 is a favourite of the Pop Playlister team, a moody alt-pop track that compliments Kitty’s ethereal vocals perfectly. Featuring all the best elements of classic Pop, infused with a gloomy electro twist, 2020 is a cinematic anthem from the stand out singer Kitty. Her full project, The Dark Age, is like nothing you would’ve heard before. A pop diva whose dark twist on the genre is intriguing, emotive and captivating.

Next up is single Everybody, a grooving alt-pop track from powerhouse trio Lohrd Snohw, Orange Bloom and Tom Shawcroft. Three music mavericks coming together to create magic, making Everybody one of the best collaboration singles I’ve heard all year. Everybody is an energetic track, with flawless production from Orange Bloom and catchy hooks from Lohrd Snohw and Tom Shawcroft. The track is truly addictive, a sound you just can’t help but groove along to and a real accomplishment for the trio. The Pop Playlister team are secretly praying Everybody won’t be the last single we get from this supergroup.

Third on our list is Erika Ascenzo’s soulful single Bound. Powerful, smooth and sultry this track makes me truly excited for the future of R&B. Bound is just the second single from Australian singer-songwriter Erika Ascenzo’s whose musicality and vocal prowess is astonishing. The track is full, with nifty baselines a punchy beat and glossy synths. Erika’s deep yet soft vocals are the icing on the cake to this delicious track. Leaving us hungry for more, let’s hope Erika Ascenzo releases more music to satisfy the craving for more Bound has left us with.

With bright guitars, a bassy beat and a light touch of synths After Dark is the definition of easy listening. The perfect track to sit back and relax to on a slow Sunday afternoon.

Last but by no means least is Perfect by OnlyM and Blahza. A dreamy lo-fi beat full of intricate design, rhythm and musicality. The track is made complete by the easy bars of Blahza, witty lyricism with gentle delivery creating a bedroom pop single that oozes quality. Perfect is a stunning introduction for the Pop Playlister team to this talented duo. A must have on your playlist, and two talents to watch out for.
