Acantha Lang – “SugarWoman”

Born and raised in the musical hotspot of New Orleans, this songstress grew up surrounded by Blues and Soul. Carrying her melodic heritage, she moved to New York and performed at iconic venues like The Harlem Grill. Next she moved to London, UK, to hone her charismatic tonality. Inspired by legends like Aretha Franklin and Nina Simone, she developed a distinctive Blues and Soul sound.

The silky-smooth groove which is her latest single gently strokes your eardrums straight from the first note. The laid-back beat and mellow guitar plucks give an easygoing vibe, while some vintage-touched, breezy brass adds an uplifting aesthetic to this gorgeous sip of saturated Soul. With her intimate and lavishly sparkling vocals fondling the senses, this honeyed jam feels like a warm embrace.

Bianca Blanc – “Step Right Up”

Hailing from Pretoria in South-Africa, this talented and passionate singer/songwriter and vocal coach has already made an impression on the local live music scene, playing festivals such as KKNK and Aardklop and opening for South-African acts Jesse Clegg and Wonderboom. Building her vibrant and catchy tunes on a guitar or an ukulele, she released her refreshing debut single “Butterflies” in 2017.

Her latest single is like a vitalizing musical puppy; adorable, happiness-inducing and cute, but with an occasional friendly bite. It starts with her chirpy ukulele and an airy beat, but soon the song comes alive with an incredibly addictive hook, rolling drums and blazing brass. Fusing  her sugary-sweet, yet powerful vocals with the invigorating melody, this is a jubilantly joyous earworm.
