On December 9th, Nobody’s Wolf Child released their newest release, Big Bad Wolf. Taking her trilogy into a darker sound and romanticizes the wolf’s power.

I love the vibe of this dark song; it’s mysterious and reminds me of watching Penny Dreadful on Netflix. If you then go look it up, it’s a great show; it perfectly describes what this song feels like. I genuinely have nothing wrong to say about this absolute masterpiece.

On November 18th, she released her newest single, Running Up That Hill. This cover is inspired by her upbringing and the troubled perception of God in an environment of Mormonism.

The first thing I notice about this video is the raw emotions behind it, but I also feel the song’s pace is too fast. I would have built more time between the verses in this song because the production and choreography are beautiful.

This song is great for fans of Regina Spektor, Angel Olsen, and London Grammar. If you like what you hear, please leave a like and follow below.

Alas de Liona is from a small town in the Mojave Desert with dreamlike songwriting sensibility, unique lyrics, and melodic musical experiences. In late 2020, she recorded her Radio Astronomy EP, a collection of space lullabies and cosmic folktales. The EP was officially released this summer after the pandemic delayed its release.

On November 11th Alas released her newest single, Spirals. The song is one of two singles she released with her band, the other single being Vortices.

Alas’s production is full of beauty in this song too, and the video is intriguing as well. At the beginning of the video, I would provide more context and make the music video feel more like a short story. I think that’s the path she was going with video production.

If you’re a fan of spacey modern singer-songwriters who also tell cool stories, then you would like Alas, too. If you like what you hear, please leave a like and follow below.

Green Bay and Stockholm-based married couple indie pop duo, 7000apart, is the project of Amelie E ding and Jon Kresin. The duo got married in 2016 after spending a long test of time 7,000 miles apart.

On December 6th, they released their newest EP, Feel Your Feelings. The duo has never written anything more radically honest or viscerally vulnerable than their songs on this EP.

I love what this EP stands for and is about; I think vulnerability is essential in music production. It doesn’t only attract people like me, but it is therapeutic for everyone involved and listening. My favorite songs include the whole EP. (HEHE)

On November 26th, he released his newest single, circles. The song is about people who repeat their daily routines and do not go anywhere in life.

I love the drop in the b ginning; it’s an excellent way to start a song. The vocals are a bit too soft to begin the track; I would personally like the vocals to be more upfront. The same goes for the rest of the track, but readers should expect to see more of Clinton.

If you’re a Porter Robinson and Sylvan Esso fan, then you would also like Clinton N. If you like what you hear, please leave a like and follow below.

The song overall is well produced, but I would like to hear more of a contemporary style than a commercial pop style. That is just a personal preference, however.

If you’re a fan of commercial pop, then you’d like this song. If you like what you hear, please leave a like and follow below.
