Multi-platinum French DJ & producer Klingande returns with his new single ‘Eye Of The Storm’, a collaboration with Berlin-based duo Pool Blue, out now.
Showcasing his unrivalled ability to combine organic instrumentation with electronic production, ‘Eye Of The Storm’ is a feelgood dance jam consisting of sugar-sweet vocals, sunkissed guitars and rousing beats.
Klingande continues with a prolific year that saw him drop remixes of ‘Shake, Shake, Shake’ by Bronze Radio Return and ‘One More Time’ by Robin Schulz and Felix Jaehn, as well as releasing single ‘Better Man’ with Rogelio, amassing upwards of 6 million combined Spotify streams in the process.

3. Veps – ‘His Brother’
Following the release of their debut EP ‘Open The Door’ and a string of impressive festivals this summer, including The Great Escape, Reeperbahn, Indiestad, Vill Vill Vest and By:Larm, Oslo’s VEPS return with their new single ‘His Brother’. The track, which is accompanied by another lo-fi, self-directed video, is out now on Kanine Records.
Raw, brutally honest and delicately vulnerable, ‘His Brother’ is an infectious, angst filled, post-breakup pop banger, produced by Matias Tellez (Girl In Red) at Skogen Studio in Bergen. “The track is an angry, but vulnerable song about jealousy, betrayal and love,” the band said of the song. “We wrote it together after a bad breakup. Although the song is written about a specific experience, it’s therapeutic for all of us to perform live.”
Very much continuing with their DIY ethics, VEPS also self-directed the video for ‘His Brother’. Filmed on an industrial estate outside of Oslo, the girls said of the video: “We wanted to match the song’s energy, so of course we had to smash some stuff. It resulted in a lot of splinters and almost-casualties, but we made it out alive! It probably wasn’t too safe, but it was a lot of fun. Don’t try this at home…”
4. John Noble Barrack – ‘Salem’
Artist, actor, and charity volunteer extraordinaire John Noble Barrack releases new single “Salem.” The song is now available on all digital streaming platforms.
“Salem” kicks off a new era of genre-blending genius. John kicks his song off with acoustic guitar intro immediately followed up by heart-wrenching lyrics written by a man with the weight of the world on his shoulders. He demonstrates beautifully tragic self-sacrifice, while he navigates a love where his partner is not capable or willing to put in the same effort. The song melds the best parts of Folk and Americana, and it teems with the influence of artists like Hozier and Phoebe Bridgers. With a theater background John seemlessly melds his dramatic presence into every aspect of this song. He is Adam Lambert on crack without all of the make up.
“It seemed so life and death at the time. Funny how our brains work, right? That’s why I added the metaphor to the Salem Witch Trials. Another life and death situation where guilt was assigned upon the innocent. The only difference being that in this situation, I was asking for the guilt,” John explains.
5. Alyssa Bonagura – ‘New Wings’
US singer-songwriter Alyssa Bonagura has today shared a reflective, acoustic version of her single ‘New Wings,’ released in July. The track
The stripped back, acoustic version of ‘New Wings’ adds another dimension to the lyrics, the meaning of the single for Alyssa and aims to serve as a reminder that our struggles make us human and do not define us; they simply shape us into the individuals we are supposed to be for our next chapter.
“This version was important for me to record and release as it’s a reflective reminder that as difficult as it may feel when you’re going through a challenging time, there’s always an end to the pain and struggle,” Alyssa continues, “along with millions around the world, I lost a lot and experienced a significant amount of change in 2020 and ‘New Wings’ became a song that reflects the process of emerging from it; healed, whole and ‘ready to soar.’”
6. Teddy Failure – ‘Stoner’
Teddy Failure have hit 20 million streams over the course of just four tracks, with their recent single ‘Pure’ (featuring ELIO) landing tastemaker tips from The Line of Best Fit and DIY to add to their previous extensive airplay in Sweden, Norway and Germany. Now the duo – Teo Runsiö and Frans Torell – share their brand new single ‘Stoner’, together with its official video. LISTEN HERE
Given its title, it’s only natural that ‘Stoner’ is even more laid-back than Teddy Failure’s previous releases. It’s a quietly captivating acoustic groove in which the duo’s two-part vocals celebrate the simple joy of kicking back and letting the day drift away escaping everyday life. That said, it could also be interpreted as a cautionary tale. Like much of Teddy Failure’s writing to date, ‘Stoner’ feels like a coming-of-age movie in the form of a song.
Teddy Failure commented, “‘Stoner’ is about escaping from all the expectations everyday life puts on you – to just do whatever u want and not care about what other people think”.
7. Papa Roach – ‘Dying To Believe’
Iconic rock band Papa Roach has launched their new single “Dying To Believe.” The song, produced by WZRD BLD aka Drew Fulk (Ice Nine Kills, Motionless In White, Bullet For My Valentine) is a call for human unity and harmony, despite any differences people have.
Singer Jacoby Shaddix commented, “We try to make music that means something to us, that moves us.” He continues, “When I look out into the world right now a lot of people are divided. The beautiful thing about music is it’s a unifier. I wanted to make a song that has some hope in it.”
Shaddix’s signature vocals soar over anthemic choruses and heavy instrumentals in a dynamic call to arms. Fans can stream the new song HERE.
“Dying To Believe” joins recently released singles including the powerful and anthemic “Kill The Noise” and the genre-bending banger “Swerve” featuring Jason Aalon Butler (Fever 333) and Sueco.

8. Peach Tree Rascals – ‘Song From Hell’
After quietly racking up nearly half-a-billion streams and receiving praise from Billboard, PAPER, The FADER and more, gold-selling California collective Peach Tree Rascals unveil a new single entitled “Song From Hell” today.
The track teems with the kind of sonic sunshine the group remains renowned for. Bass thumps through propulsive handclaps wrapped in breezy and bouncy guitar. Meanwhile, the guys trade quotable verses before the chantable chorus urges, “Baby, don’t you take my love for granted, don’t you let it fade.” The track hops between pop, alternative, hip-hop, and indie seamlessly all spiked with high-energy boundlessness.
“Song From Hell” stands out as the follow-up to Peach Tree Rascals’ latest 2021 EP, Camp Nowhere. Inciting widespread critical applause, FLAUNT Magazine observed, “The band has gained notoriety through their ability to bend genres creating their own unique sound” and EUPHORIA. rated it “4-out-of-5 stars” raving, “It’s the quintessential introduction to PTR, providing something fresh for every listener.” In other news, they joined forces with Campbell’s® to perform a cover of Fleetwood Mac’s “Everywhere” as part of their #soundsgoodtonight series.

Both hypnotic and intensely vulnerable, “All Mine” once again reveals ayokay’s incredible ability to fully transport the audience into another world in under three minutes. With its glistening textures and gorgeously airy beats, the track unfolds in an understated but richly layered sound reflecting his deep affinity for ambient electronic music. Along with showcasing the unbridled originality he’s previously shown in producing for hitmakers like Carly Rae Jepsen and Grouplove, “All Mine” features an emotionally raw vocal performance from the Detroit-bred musician otherwise known as Alex O’Neill.
“I wrote “All Mine” this summer with the intention of creating a laid back track about spending a long night with someone you care about, says ayokay. Once I had the vocal, I tried to take the instrumental in a ton of different directions, all leaving it in a very chill space. Finally I brought it to my friend Phil Scully who helped me pump the energy it had been needing to turn it into the dance-floor-ready track I had always hoped it would be.”
10. Amber Van Day – ‘Uh Oh’
Following “See You In Tears” with Illira and most recently the dance floor banger “Touch”, the multi-talented Amber Van Day is back with her new single “Uh Oh” and presents the finest upbeat pop sounds. With “Uh Oh,” Amber Van Day shows once again her talent for irresistible pop anthems with power, melody and edgy beats. Amber Van Day masters the seduction with a perfect mix of pop and dance, and above all else, her breathtaking voice. Her songs address empowerment, self-confidence, and self-love, but also tell of formative moments and encounters that are emulated by audiences around the world. The origin of “Uh Oh” is an everyday experience:
“Someone was late for our songwriting session. So producer Paul Whalley and I sat on the front door steps and waited. ‘Uh Oh’ was made in about half an hour, the song wrote itself. In the end we even kept all the original lead vocals and lyrics,” says Amber Van Day and adds, “’Uh Oh’ is a conversation to my inner monologue. It’s about the unpredictability of this tyrant who lives in my head, who can hijack my thought process at any moment and become the star of the show.”
The message of “Uh Oh” is to fight against such negative thoughts, but to also recognize that they exist and can pull the mood and the day in one direction. But the song is also the energy booster to get through the upcoming fall season and feeling blue.
