What do you get when you mix funky sounds, r&b vibes, and a seriously delicious food item? You’ve got the impressive new single from Denitia and Sene, of course. “Olive.” is the Brooklyn duo’s latest offering and it’s smoother than butter (enough food references yet?). Songs this catchy usually don’t last more than 3 minutes, but this one happens to keep its addictive sparkle for the duration of 5. It feels so good that it could probably go on for longer and no one would complain. Listen to the Sly5thave produced track below and start your weekend right.
Camden Cox has released some truly addictive pop gems in the last couple of years, yet here we are still waiting for that debut album. Although there’s no word on that (yet!), we’ve at least got a little dose of music to pull us through for now. “Focus” is Camden Cox’s newest single and it’s feel-good pop music at its finest. The track is laced in r&b vibes which makes it that much more intriguing. It’s undeniably catchy and you’re bound to have it stuck in your brain after about two listens (go ahead, test it out). Listen to Camden Cox shine in her latest single “Focus” below (and keep hoping for that debut full-length)!
Radio Eliza is a Dutch six-piece band with a sound reminiscent of that synth-driven indie pop wave of the late 2000s but with lyrics that could only exist in these unfiltered times. A lot of people consider indie pop to be “fluff” music and completely disparage it. For me, indie pop has merit when the chorus hits at the perfect moment (and suddenly teleports you into a teen drama you thought you had outgrown), and when the writer somehow conveys your own emotions in a completely unexpected way (…and suddenly teleports you into a teen drama you really, really thought you had outgrown). These elements come together on ”Kids,” Radio Eliza’s best song to date.
While I don’t particularly care for the yelling in the backing vocals and the outro, the lyrics are so bold and relatable you realize you have totally lived out the lyrics several times over in your own glory days.
If you like what you hear on “Kids,” then I highly recommend you check out the rest of Radio Eliza’s debut project, the Intergalactic Flurny Furby EP. (“Answering Machine” is another favorite of mine.)
But when she called I heard her say / ”Perfect ending, shitty day”

Brooklyn-based nRCS has the perfect new single to get you ready for summer’s first major weekend, and we’re proud to premiere it here on Sunset. Produced by Sunset favorites and synth pop stalwarts Memoryy and Brothertiger, “Run Through the Rain” is a warm, gooey pop anthem that sounds like the closing track from your favorite inspirational movie.
Warm, gooey synths and cavernous drums give the track an anthemic quality; it’s part Bleachers, part Passion Pit. The song is endearing and earnest, the musical embodiment of a summer romance. It even breaks down for a few bars into a drums-and-vocals only hook that is sure to get your blood pumping.
nRCS has a six-song EP coming out soon, and it’s sure to be a rotation staple for the warm months ahead.
Who the heck is biLLLy and why is he spoiling us with such jams? If I had the answer, I’d give it to you (I’m just as lost as you, folks!). “Can’t Blame” is the latest dance-worthy tune from the London-based artist and it’s bound to be that perfect addition to your summer party playlists. The track has a slight Jai Paul vibe (everybody needs some of that, we’re deprived!) and happens to be a track on biLLLy’s upcoming EP. “Can’t Blame” is the rhythmic gem that’ll get you groovin’, so take a listen below!
Greatness lies in innovation. While the idea of dousing one’s voice in autotune isn’t exactly groundbreaking in rap music, the execution of the idea is how “Monster Truck” turns the corner into new territory. The song works so well in part due to Allday‘s detached delivery. What may seem lazy is actually smart and enticing, as the Aussie rapper slurs pronunciations and nonchalantly drops ending syllables of words. This is candid late night listening for the young and misguided.
Might rip my organs out just for the money
Buy a monster truck, go roll over your mummy
Why I always think about my ex when I’m fucking?
Why I always thinking bout rain when it’s sunny?

Known for their amebic rock grooves and sonic experimentalism, NYC’s diNMachine never disappoint with their wild electronic musical leanings. Adding turntable impresario DJ Olive to the (re)mix makes for an even more intoxicating network of sounds, landing somewhere between Aphex Twin and Diplo. The use of Dubstep and other contemporary techniques makes this track feel like a cultural touchstone of sorts, bridging the gap from 90′s club music to the bleeding edge of electronica. The DJ Olive remix is the first one off the upcoming cassette release, Sang Gween Remixes, from diNMachine, which includes 10 remixes of the single by different DJ’s from around the world plus the original song. The cassette will be released on September 23 by Greedy Dilettante Records.
If you’re looking for something pure and dreamlike, you’ve come to the right place. Few Bits is a Belgian indie-pop band that happens to ooze of dreaminess and it’s especially evident with their latest single “Anyone Else”. Things seem so simple with lyrics like “I feel good when I’m by myself, I don’t think I need anyone else“, but there’s a lingering feeling that there’s more to it than just that. The song keeps its moody feel going with a lo-fi sound and a dose of rawness. Few Bits is bound to break out a goodie with their new album Big Sparks. Until then, check out “Anyone Else” below.
Flamingosis’ “Believe in Me” takes you to another time and place, one with sunnier weather and not a single worry. Brooklyn-based Flamingosis has been playing with samples for quite some time to the delight of soul fans – his Beatape is a personal favorite of mine. This newest piece plays to all of his strengths, using tasteful vocals and crisp drum sounds to keep you gliding all the way home. Check it out below.
Every now and then an artist emerges from the depths, plucked out of thin air, and causes the world to stir. With some good Internet fortune and a major co-sign from Pharrell, Maggie Rogers finds herself in that very (viral) situation. After completely blowing Skateboard P’s mind during his masterclass at NYU, Rogers went back to work to mix and master her demo of “Alaska.” The young talent has finally unveiled the polished product, and the result is an amazing blend of folk, dance, and pop that glitters and bounces just as much as it speaks with honesty and vulnerability.
Stream Maggie Roger’s “Alaska” below, and sing along to the lyrics too!
Denmark’s own Soleima is a burgeoning pop star with two potential hits to her name. The first is “Wasted,” a distorted pop ode to poolside inebriation. The second is “Once Was,” which with an equally distorted chorus, brings a one-sided conversation with an ex to musical life. Both songs are instantly digestible nuggets of pop gold with just enough computer generated effects to keep things consistently surprising.
Phantogram has been busy being Big Grams (with none other than Big Boi) for the last year, but now the duo is back to work on their own material. It’s been a minute since we got an album from Phantogram (about 2 years to be exact), but they’re currently prepping for their third studio album (also titled Three). “You Don’t Get Me High Anymore” is the first track that’s been released and it definitely has that Phantogram sound we’ve all grown to love. On one hand, the track makes you want to move and bob your head, but on the other hand, it’s got that feeling of gloominess and emotion. It’s essentially a dark yet catchy track and has Phantogram written all over it. Check out “You Don’t Get Me High Anymore” below!
