“Hurricane (with Tyson Ritter)” by Cheat Codes & Grey
DJ trio Cheat Codes follow up their All Time Low assisted single “Ghost Story” with the latest “Hurricane” while tapping All-American Rejects lead singer Tyson Ritter and producers Grey for the track. The new release continues the Los Angeles based group’s second installment of their HELLRAISERS album series. While Part 1 featured more of the dance pop sound the group has become known for, the second part focuses more on the hip-hop and emo sounds. The three part album series will be an ode to classic dance music within minimal lyrics and focus on synths and bass.
“Hole In My Heart (f. Livingston)” by Louis The Child
Chicago electronic duo Louis The Child share their latest release “Hole In My Heart” – a collaboration between them and viral 19-year old singer Livingston. Soulful and heartbreaking the single is as catchy as it is cathartic as Livingston deals with the loss of a love. The single appears ahead of the duo’s Euphoria EP due out October 15th.
“Reckless” by KTJ & CARLY
Indie-pop duo KTJ & CARLY follow up their Oli Harper collaboration with latest single, “Reckless.” Marking the two’s fourth release of the year, “Reckless” is an intense swirl of moodiness and darkness that draws you in with a false sense of security before a deep bass unexpectedly overtakes. The results is dark pop song that creates an insanely danceable beat.
“Cure” by Valley
Canadian pop band Valley drop their latest EP today titled Last Birthday. The 7-song project includes previously released singles such as “Like 1999” and “SOCIETY” in addition to new releases “Cure” and “ain’t my girl.” Over the years the band has solidified their stake in the pop music and this new EP is no exception.
“Crave” by Years & Years
British group Years & Years which is fronted by Olly Alexander has announced latest album, Night Call and share new song “Crave.” A club-ready track that is a swirling mix of desire and fantasy with a bass that’s unassumingly infectious. Night Call is due out January 7th via Interscope Records.
