Smoke Season – “Hot Damn”

Living by the rule that normal is boring, this Los Angeles-based duo has adopted a distinctly individual style. With Gabby Wortman fiddling with all things analog and digital and Jason Rosen exploring his abnormality through fashion, as well as music, they found the perfect balance. Their live-shows are a multi-sensory experience, bringing their unique sound of electro-soul with a shot of whiskey.

Written in less than an hour, their latest single is a sweltering summer sun put to music. Dripping with lustful tones, it takes 60s-soaked sensuous verses and a lively rock chorus, uniting them in a passionate musical fever. The catchy beat, retro organ sounds and heavy horns turn up the orchestral heat, while the wide-ranging vocals give it a soulful strength, putting you in a sexy, sanguine mood.

FLARA K – “Me And You”

Consisting of Sam Martell and Collin Steinz, this dynamic duo has been touring their native Canada for over five years. Recently they’ve played a headlining show at the renowned international music festival POP Montreal and they got nominated for a 2018 Independent Music Award. Giving their own unique twist to a Pop/R&B mixture, they released their debut single “Offline” in September 2018.

Their sophomore single starts with sultry, soul-touched smooth grooves, which lead to a mighty, high-voltage chorus. Being the title-track of their upcoming EP, it bridges the polished, retro-soaked vibes and the modern synths to reach an original glistening fusion. With bewitching vocals, ranging from soothing R&B to heart-wrenching power, this is a vigorous piece of punchy Pop.
