New Music Alert: January

New Music Alert: January
New Music AlertJanuary 7, 2022

New Year, New Music Alert. We’re welcoming 2022 with a new group of artists putting out solid tunes to soundtrack your January. Listen to playlists below, followed by a little insight into each song itself. 

LISTEN ON SPOTIFY

WATCH ON YOUTUBE

The Ateliers | “Alkaline”

The LA-based group kicks us off with this easy going, sweet song. Soft voices, a lilting guitar line, with the smallest sonic flourishes–  this one feels as close and fragile as a whisper. 

LISTEN NOW

Bam Alexander | “Questions”

The DMV (DC, Maryland and Virginia) artist gives us a song that hooks from the start. The way the intro samples of sound weave together almost feels like smoke rising, with the verse appearing in the haze. “Questions” feels delivered with certainty.

Andrea Martínez | “Dragones - Acto 1”

Cue the colorful disco lights at your favorite nightclub. The Lima artist put together a kaleidoscopic pop song that feels like the kind of intoxicating energy of cutting loose on the dance floor. (Will also inspire a little shoulder shuffle for a midday pick-me-up.)

LISTEN NOW

Natisú | “Amores”

Natalia Suazo, aka Natisú, gives us this dreamy track that embodies the Chilean artist’s knack for avant garde pop. Pay attention around the 2 minute mark when Natisú’s voice turns into a full on beam of light. 

 LISTEN NOW

Juice | “Butterfly Boy”

There may be seven of them, but Juice dials into an intimate simplicity with “Butterfly Boy”, which glides and slides through luscious R&B verses, finely picked guitar lines, and sweet airy stretches of strings. The Boston group made something special here. 

LISTEN NOW

Rufus T. Firefly | “Lafayette”

Right from the first note this one moves with a swiftness that feels palpable, like you’re gliding and feeling the breeze. The six-piece from Madrid put together a tune that’s big– with strong percussion, a rainbow of voices, and a few power rock moments delivered with a softer, folky touch. Take a listen for yourself. 

LISTEN NOW

Kara Marni | “Close - Acoustic”

The London artist took her song “Close” and stripped it down to its delicate bones, delivering a pristine performance of the track with just a little guitar taking on a counter melody, as though the two are in conversation. Go hear what they have to say. 

LISTEN NOW

DRAMA | “Forever’s Gone”

You know when you hear something and you’re just immediately in it? This Chicago duo takes us there with “Forever’s Gone”, a solid, solid electronic pop song that makes you feel like you’re the star of the coolest music video you’ve ever seen. Guaranteed pep in your step after hearing this jam.
