The Friday Five: New Music Roundup 8/27/21
It’s the last new music Friday for August 2021 so let’s dive right in:
“Wish It Was You” by Audien & Cate Downey
DJ, producer and musician Audien releases new single “Wish It Was You” which features vocals from Denver pop singer Cate Downey. The progressive house track follows a break-up that doesn’t feel quite over yet that explodes into a catchy dance-pop drop.
“Paper Hearts (F-150)” by Kidd G
Geffen Records country artist Kidd G follows up the July released single, “Summer In A Small Town” with “Paper Hearts (F-150).” Unlike the youthful and carefree tone expressed in “Summer,” “Paper” continues the singer’s darker country sound that mixes a hint of punk with a twang.
“Country Boy Do (f. Tyler Hubbard)” by Nelly
Rapper Nelly continues tapping into his Texas roots as he drops his country album, Heartland. “Country Boy Do” – one of the previously unreleased tracks features vocals from Florida Georgia Line’s Tyler Hubbard as they highlight the life of a “country boy.”
“Burning Bridges” by Sigrid
Norwegian singer and songwriter Sigrid releases her second song of 2021 with “Burning Bridges.” The follow up to “Mirrors” is a dark 80’s inspired synth-pop song that she describes being “about that moment when you know have to let go.” She adds that she’s cool the song meaning “anything you want it to be.”
“Bella” by Static & Ben El
Israeli pop duo Static & Ben El return with their latest all English song with “Bella.” The new single features the duo’s signature style mixed with infectious hooks as the two exclaim their love for, you guessed it – Bella.
