The rise and rise of HAAi
Incorporating talent from across the globe, check out our five Tracks of the Week taken from our meticulously-curated BRAND NEW playlist showcasing some of the most exciting up-and-coming talents around.
1. Madge – ‘THUMBTAX’
Madge’s music was once described by her friend as “something that will break your nose and your heart” – taking into account the Los Angeles artist’s punchy and bittersweet sound, it’s hard not to agree with that statement. Her latest single ‘THUMBTAX’ is an intoxicating anthem, sprucing up the singer-producer’s heartfelt wordplay with some future-facing hyperpop production.
2. NEY LIQA – ‘drifting’
Splicing elements of punk pop, rap, hyperpop and dance music, NEY LIQA’s latest single ‘drifting’ peels off the polished surface from modern pop, leaving her raw and vulnerable sound to land with maximum impact. The producer and singer is gaining momentum with each release and earns a spot in this week’s round up.
3. okayceci – ‘purse bottle’
Punctuating her unique brand of bedroom pop with guitar loops and timely vocal chops, Miami native okayceci radiates dreamy vocals and ethereal visuals. After finding success on TikTok and building a dedicated core fan base, new single ‘purse bottle’ continues what has been a year of growth.
4. Tex – ‘Skyline’
Swedish newcomer Tex recently shared his debut single ‘Skyline’, an intimate track about the insecurities that come with love. Meshing different sounds and influences into a unique combination of distorted guitars and multi-layered vocals, the rising talent’s new track is taken from his upcoming self-titled debut EP, expected to arrive in July.
5. Fortuno – ‘Do It Again’
Made up of Ellis, Eli, and Tobi, Fortuno are the LA-based indie trio causing waves with their otherworldly productions. Making whatever strikes them in the moment, the three-piece’s eclectic discography so far shows exactly what they’re capable of.
