Aries is on fire with his latest release, "DITTO." The song kicks off with light vocal layers, and follows with a more raw, punk-style vocal performance over a lush pop arrangement. The melodies are rhythmic and heartfelt—the chorus vocals have a gritty quality that particularly resonates. The chorus production is busy and full of movement, juxtaposing with the more spacious verses. Check out "DITTO" below.

Casey Baer's latest release, "Hollywood Hills," is a thought-provoking pop song that has us vibing. The lyrics reflect on the smoke and mirrors of Hollywood and the loneliness that follows so many. The pre-chorus features a classic triplet-style melody, followed by a downtempo chorus that defies expectations. The chorus' production and melodies are anthemic and reflective of the fakeness among young people on social media and beyond, and how unrealistic expectations can affect mental health. Check out "Hollywood Hills" below.

After releasing his first records, Reece garnered love from outlets such as Pigeons and Planes, HillyDilly, FADER, and more, racking up over 25 million cumulative streams. Reece was finding his sound and beginning an incredible creative journey, which would lead to meetings with early fans like super-producer Benny Blanco, collaborations with producers like Clams Casino, Robotaki, Heavy Mellow, Trackside, stints living in NYC and LA, and the release of his debut EP 'I'm Not Sure Yet' in 2019. That project was supported by opening slots for FINNEAS in NYC and LA, with NomBe at the legendary Fonda, and a 5 show run with Maverick Sabre.

"Generational Heartthrob" is perfectly playful and light, with one of the hookiest choruses we've heard in a while. We love the way the lyrics sing when paired with the melody—the title lyric is particularly compelling to hear. The verse melodies are tastefully rhythmic and bouncy, and contrast with the chorus melody satisfyingly. This song deserves several replays, check it out below.
