MIA MORMINO - Joan Of Arc
Los Angeles, United States
Mia Mornino is no stranger to TJPL News, her single titled 'Alternate Reality' is a track that we've reviewed in the past and is one that has stuck in my brain ever since.

The track opens with an acoustic piano and dark pop synths that encapsulate the lyrics of the track perfectly, man Mia Mormino has done it again! Number 1 from me this week again!!

THE ASTRONOMERS - Like The Holidays
Fond du Lac, United States
The United States-based pop group 'The Astonomers' released their latest single 'Like The Holidays' on 8th August. 'Like The Holidays is a catchy happy-go-lucky song with catchy hip-hop drum loops, vocal chops, and spacious synth melodies. The way that the product works is that the spaces between the rhythm and the vocal melodies create depth to the overall track. The lyrics are catchy. The vocals in the first verse are very 'Shaun Mendez' in tone. The hook lifts the whole track and is memorable and when the second verse comes in there are faster lyrics that almost sound like contemporary rap. This is a great song!
ONBAR, PATRICK HIZON - GOOD
San Jose, United States
'Good' is a collaborative project between ONBAR and Parick Hizon. This track takes a shot at your soul so quickly and makes your soul dance along to its funky beats but that is not all! The track also implements slow hip-hop and R&B to bring the realms of pop, funk, and R&B together. This is such a soulful track that works to relax the listener as well as getting us to dance along. This is a great track! One of my favorite submissions all week hands down. If you're intrigued (which you should be) then click the play button below to get lost in this track. If you're a fan of some of the slower instrumentals that artists such as Phora use and the funkiness of old-school soul and R&B then yep, this is one for you!
FAR-BE - On The Rocks
'On The Rocks' by Rotterdam artist FAR-BE is a whole Summer Vibe. Opening with the sound of the seaside we're immediately set up for an anthem here. As the track develops we hear funky house drum loops and a funky bass melody that finds themselves accompanied by a calypso house bell synth. This track is definitely one that will get you in the groove and ready to move. Although there are no words to this production, you won't care as you dance the day and night away!

BAYWUD - Lullaby
Los Angeles, United States
BAYWUD has brought a little bit of indie folk pop to our finds this week. In his new single, we hear something fresh and clean in 'Lullaby'. The track was released on August the 3rd. 'Lullaby' opens with clear and warm guitar plucks that are shortly joined by the most unexpected vocal harmonies. Wow, this is one of the cleanest and most beautiful harmonies I've heard in a long time. The lyrics are truly special and the track overall is just what it says on the tin, a lullaby. Discussing not knowing how to sleep without a certain person, and wanting them to kiss you goodnight, this song is a dedication to someone special. Hats off to BAYWUD, this song is truly brilliant.
