The Dawn Brothers – “Holy Water”

Although they are not technically related, this Dutch foursome from Rotterdam are brothers through their love of rock ‘n’ roll. They created a whole new spin on the Americana/rootsrock genre, made famous by the likes of Neil Young and The Band, by taking the classic sounds and bringing it right up to date. Their debut album “Stayin’ Out Late” was released in 2017 to rave reviews.

On their latest single they added touches of gospel, soul and rhythm & blues to their rock ‘n’ roll heritage to forge an irresistible, energetic ear-worm. Filled to the brim with juicy percussion, singing blues guitar, perky piano and raw, unfiltered vocals, they sing about corruption and greed. Their boot-stompin’ musical virtuosity generates a mighty and robust slice of Dutch Americana.

Bearoid – “Waiting For You”

Spanish producer and vocalist Dani Belenguer is the man behind Bearoid – an electro-pop project born from musical experimentation and the search for freedom. With lyrics that are based on real life experiences, he writes songs that are deeply personal and relatable. Although musically he lets his emotional state dictate the style when composing, he prefers melodic electronic music you can dance to.

On his latest single that organic way of composing turned the signature electro-pop into addictive electro-funk. With a very funkalicious beat, this is a sweltering synth-heavy song, chronicling the pitfalls of long-distance relationships. By blending retro-funk with hiphop vibes, the vocals go from a soul-dipped quality to a kind of melodic rap, creating a colorful and energetic groove.
