Alison Wonderland – Church  

Alexandra Sholler, better known as Alison Wonderland, is an Australian electronic dance music DJ, producer and singer. She released her debut album, Run, in 2015, topping at No.?6 on the ARIA Albums Charts.  

'Church' is the second single from Wonderland’s upcoming album, Awake. The song is about realising your own self-worth, even when nobody else does, with a booming chorus to make any listener feel triumphant in their own achievements. Wonderland admits that the song was a very personal project, and even helped her work through her own depression. The song is a reminder to not let anyone else tear you down and that you too can make it through low points into happier days.  

 

 

Blossoms – I Can’t Stand It 

Blossoms are an English rock band from Greater Manchester, formed in 2013. In 2016, they achieved fourth place on the BBC’s Sound Of New Music list.  

The infectious melody gives a very soothing feel to the song. The lyrics tell the difficulties of trying to forget the emotional memories that flood your mind after a break-up. The simplistic nature of both tune and words create an effective song for easy-listening.  

 

Liv Dawson – Talk 

Liv Dawson is an English singer-songwriter born in London. Her first single 'Tapestry' was released in 2016, gathering attention from the internet before earning her a record label signing with Method Records.  

Dawson has the incredible ability to sing something that sounds intensely beautiful while at the same time sounding effortless, which she demonstrates in her latest single, 'Talk'. The rhythm of the music compliments her soulful vocals in a way that makes the song a pleasure to listen to.  

 

Nico Santos – Rooftop 

Nico Wellenbrink, better known as Nico Santos, is a German-Spanish singer-songwriter, and is one of Germany’s favourites at just 24-years-old. He was catapulted to the top of the Airplay Charts with his breakthrough hit, 'Home', which he worked on with German DJ Topic.  

His catchy new single 'Rooftop' is a vigorous track, with a mix of classic soul and contemporary R&B mixed throughout. After only the first time hearing it, the fresh yet urban harmony put together with Santos’ dominant voice and his unique tone will be stuck in your head for days on end.
