Great new pop is on the horizon! We’ve rounded up a few wonderful women bringing their A-game to the pop scene this month. Get to know a little about them and check our their latest tracks below in the Fresh Pop Artist’s feature.
3’S a Crowd- Madison Olds
Madison Olds collaborates with Kevvy (Fake Shark, Carly Rae Jepsen) and producer Ryan Worsley on her sultry new track ‘3’S a Crowd.’ Time to grab the girl gang and take over the world.
“My new single, “3’S a Crowd,” is about giving into your flirty, sexy, wild side. Close your eyes and picture this baller, badass bitch laying in a bathtub of diamonds sucking back bottles of champagne. Like a more savage version of Audrey Hepburn.”~Madison Olds
We’re getting major Regina Spektor meets Imogen Heap meets Anya Marina vibes in Marie-Clo’s latest song, ‘Shell’ solidifying its place in the Fresh Pop Artist’s role call this month. The first track from her upcoming EP out September 18th, the song focuses on a time in her life when she was overcoming a battle with her health while still fighting for her music career.
“Whether they be systemic, human, or personal barriers; ‘Shell’ is about understanding how to differentiate between impossible and possible limits, as well as overcoming them. The song’s video, directed by Aaron Desilva, represents synergetic strangers creating within a modern day world.”~Marie-Clo
don’t be sad- Tate McRae
Next up in our Fresh Pop Artist’s feature, we have Tate McRae. With over 2.51 million subscribers on her YouTube channel, it’s clear Tate’s voice is ready to be heard. Did you catch her pre-show VMA performance over the weekend? Her performance background and dance training has made Tate an unstoppable force in the pop music world.
MTV VMA’S Push Best New Artist nominee Tate McRae releases her newest track and music video, “don’t be sad” via RCA Records. The track was written by Tate, Larzz Principato (Dua Lipa, Halsey) and Jeremy Dussolliet (Anthony Ramos) and is another step up in showcasing Tate’s personal songwriting abilities.
December- Ivory Layne
We had the pleasure of meeting Nashville based singer-songwriter Ivory Layne at an event in Dallas a few years back and her live show and personality, on and off stage, SPARKLE much like her new release, ‘December.’ As the first single from her forthcoming EP ‘Confetti,’ ‘December’ was produced by Nick Atkinson and Edd Holloway (James Bay, Lewis Capaldi). The track speaks to the changing seasons of life and is accompanied by a blooming visual directed by The Dunlap Brothers.
“The idea behind ‘December’ is life having many seasons which subject us to changes in our circumstances and outlook. But it flips the at-times negative (‘nothing lasts forever’), into a hopeful promise – rough patches aren’t permanent, (‘this too shall pass’). The song has become even more therapeutic to me during COVID-19, as the uncertainty and isolation associated with quarantining has weighed heavily on the world. Nothing does last forever – we are in our December. The song sets the tone and sonic feel of the EP, which feels like a new chapter of art and music for me, and I’m excited to share it with the world.”~Ivory Layne
Earthquake- Courtney Cole
New Orleans native turned California coast, Courtney Cole recently released her new 4-track EP, ‘Earthquake.’ We’re loving the powerful vocals on title track ‘Earthquake’ as Cole sings about her world literally shaking like an earthquake in order for her to realize and embrace the beauty of life over harder times.
“The Earthquake EP is being released in conjunction with her new podcast “The Love Freq Podcast with Courtney Cole,” where she discusses the beauty and importance of healing and growing from earth shattering moments in life and reconnecting with the truest, deepest parts of ourselves in order to live our most authentic, creative expression.”
