Artist: Hollow & Akimbo “Still Life”
Album:
Pseudoscience
With its killer emotive pop vocals, distinctly speckled instrumentation, and electronic flourishes “Still Life” from Hollow & Akimbo is such a satisfying listen.

Artist: Chase and Status “International”

Brand New Machine
This track is heavy and I smell a club anthem.

Artist: Sean Reyes “Just Another”
Album:
Know Thyself
Here’s an amazing story about music and recovery. Almost 4 years ago, Sean Reyes was brutally assaulted by an unknown attacker and left for dead in the street. While doctors didn’t know if he’d survive, they were almost positive that Sean would suffer from serious brain damage if he did. After multiple surgeries and a painful and grueling recovery, Sean made it, and he turned his life around to become an award winning singer-songwriter too.

Sounds like: Pop-rock with heart.
