Welcome back to this week Vibez Music Release Radar, where we pick out the best tunes from some of the most exciting rising stars in the industry.
Ellis Berry - 'Our Story'
Rising through the ranks with his infused mix of folk and hip-hop, Ellis has produced an open and honest 'storytelling' song.
With relocating from Southport to Southampton, after graduation, Ellis became a familiar face at small local gigs and open mics performing sets with rhythmic guitar melodies and harmonic vocals.
Since his debut single 'Our Story' from his first EP 'Cabin Fever' (to be released this October), he has gained positive attention and featured on BBC Radio Solent Introducing. With already plans for a second EP for next year, Ellis has one future ahead of him.
Lani Renaldo - 'Trainwreck'
Off the bat supporting the likes of Halsey and Alessia Cara, Lani Renaldo returns with her latest track 'Trainwreck'.
A sad chill garage-pop single that explores the artist own experience of panic disorder and how buying into society's pressures of valuing success over happiness can be dangerous.
The Los Angeles artist, producer and multi-instrumentalist is now embarking on a new journey with her upcoming EP 'NOHEARTBREAK20' that is an exploration of being in your 20s and is written to be utterly relatable.
Mokita - 'Down'
Nashville singer-songwriter, producer and multi-instrumentalist has released his unrelentingly honest and deeply personal single 'Down'.
Taking songwriting as a confessional form of expression, his new single 'Down' is a love letter to anyone who is struggling right now, through sombre piano that is guided by poignant yet hopeful lyricism.
With a reputation for his songwriting and producing that has led to collaborations with noteworthy artists R3HAB and Ella Vos; Mokita has stepped out from behind the scenes, making a name for himself as an artist in his own right.
REYNA - Lonely Girl
This single might have been out for a while now but, we have had it on repeat.
Taken from their much-anticipated debut EP, the single dives into the feeling of isolating and paralyzing feeling of social anxiety; wanting to speak, participate in the fun and enjoy yourself but, you're unable to shake the feeling off - whilst keeping to their upbeat, catchy hooks.
From supporting the likes of Kesha and CHVRCHES, REYNA are now embracing a new life of their own. Don't forget to check out our full interview here.
Mae Muller - 'So Annoying'
North London singer-songwriter has risen against the odds with her unapologetic soulful pop that has led her to become one of the breakthrough acts of 2020.
Her latest single 'So Annoying' explores her disdain for pining her love, through stripped back vocals accompanied over a melodic guitar.
Following hit single 'I Don't Want Your Money', Mae Muller is now at the forefront of her own lane.
