“Dark Thoughts About A Pretty Flower” by The Lovelines

American pop-rock duo The Lovelines is back with their newest single “Dark Thoughts About A Pretty Flower”. This track mixtures retro and modern grooves to create a semi-dark, melodic soundscape. The instrumentation gained influences from different types of rock genres and blues from the 60s and 70s. But, it is the vocal melodies that cause the song to leap into modernism. Listeners shouldn’t miss that crisp production in both the vocals and instrumentation as makes the song really pop.

“I Don’t Want To Be Here” by SAVEN

“It is about drawing the line and not accepting any guilt-tripping, blaming, aggressive behavior, gaslighting/crazy-making, or other unhealthy manipulative behaviors.”

Swedish soft rock artist SAVEN is back with the newest single “I Don’t Want To Be Here”. The track’s lyrics detail the idea of deciding not to put up with emotional abuse. The artist really expresses human actions in the song’s musicality really well. For example, listeners can hear the musical metaphors of a sigh in the bright and sharp tones of an electric guitar. Yet, the vocals are sung in a gritty manner to express the inner feelings of the song’s character embattling emotional abuse. It is a well-produced track that shows off the idea of “enough is enough” both lyrically and musically.

“Lead Vampire” by Local Bylaws

American pop-punk band Local Bylaws gets inspired by one of its bandmates to create a banger. “Lead Vampire” is written in the P.O.V. of the band’s guitarist: a carpenter by day, laden with troubles, but on a night when we are playing a show, he becomes invincible. This delicious track is filled with high energy from the upbeat tempo. The track also mixtures punk vibes from the instrumentation with melodic pop melodies in the vocals. Don’t forget to listen to those harmonies as they create a nice depth to the song’s vocal melodies.

“Dust” by Retro Culture

Traveled back to the retro world of synthpop with “Dust” by Retro Culture. Though the sound might sound like the 80’s synthpop sound, the band’s true sound is electronic synthpop in the modern era of computers and bedroom producers. “Dust” features a shimmery soundscape dipped in vivid synth riffs and lively guitar riffs. They are supported by dreamy vocals and a big sound from the drums. All these elements coming together creates an ear-pleasing, uplifting soundscape that is catchy and danceable.

“Introvert Blues” by The Valery Trails

Australian alt-rock band The Valery Trails documents the lock-down life with their latest single “Introvert Blues”. This gritty rock track features raucous guitars, driven bass, infectious drumbeat, and thumpy cowbells that are filled with angst. “Introvert Blues” might feel like a vintage rock from the 90s, the lyrics have a modern appeal as they document a common struggle during a pandemic world that most listeners can share with.

“For Marcy” by Runner and Bobby

“I wrote this song about a girl I met at Lollapalooza. She had blonde hair and a cute nose and was very funny. We talked for about 30 minutes before the concert but just as it started the crowd shifted and I lost her. I got one last look at her red shirt and then she was gone. I kicked myself for a few days afterward for not asking for her number sooner and this with a few other experiences helped me write the song.”

American Indie Rock artists Runner and Bobby release their one-sided love track “For Marcy”. It is a mellow rock tune with soft electronic guitars mixed with acoustic instrumentations. The vocals bear a down-to-earth tone to them that makes this song so easy to listen to. It is almost like the vocals are heartfelt as they reminiscence back on the unknown girl that the character is in love with.
