The synth-centered sounds of Magdalena Bay will have you feeling like your floating in a neon dream on a cool, coastal night with their new single, “Waking Up”. The pop duo of Mica Tenenbaum (Singer/Songwriter) and Matthew Lewin (Songwriter/Producer) create retro-styled electro-pop with a completely modern aesthetic. You’ll want to put on your sunglasses, even after the sun has set, and chill out to the sounds of Magdalena Bay.
“Take It Slow”
The duck-masked duo known as W.A.S.H. just dropped a fresh new single just in time for Valentine’s Day (even if we might be a week late). “Take It Slow”, which features the vocal talents of Cody Ballentine, sets the mood for a romantic connection on the dance floor. Whether at the club or angling for the “private show”, this new banger from W.A.S.H. can help get you there.
Always Never’s debut EP (which was released last September) caught the attention of such notables as Fader and garnered more than a million streams online and now the Toronto-based artist is back with this super slick single. Always Never crafts super smooth, ultra-hip R&B singles ready to take over airwaves. The laid-back atmosphere on “Millions” and catchy lyrics will have you hitting the repeat button on this one.
Sam Woolf and the Como Brothers
Boston singer-songwriter Sam Woolf teamed up with two musical brothers from New York, Andrew and Matt Como, for this catchy new single. “On it” has all the bounce you need from a drive-to-work jam and Woolf’s polished vocals are American Idol worthy (true story). “On it” is just one track to emerge from this trifecta of singer-songwriters. Sam Woolf and the Como Brothers plan to release an EP together so keep watch for Backbeat in the Morning. You can check out the music video for “On It” here.
The producer known as Manila Killa teamed up with vocalist Nevve for his new single, “Everyday Everyday”, which came out on Moving Castle earlier this month. Manila Killa has been busy making a name for himself on the L.A. club scene and you can hear why in the sharp production on “Everyday Everyday”. And the mere fact that Manila Killa isn’t immediately upstaged by the stellar vocal stylings of Nevve is definitely saying something about the board skills here.
