Welcome back to that wonderful time again where here at Totally Wired Mag, we like to celebrate the rising stars, the artists big or small, whose music and talent deserve a place on your playlists. So without further ado, let’s dive right in – hit play and discover your next favourite tune.
Singer/songwriter Linsley Hartenstein, the artist known as Darity is back with yet another phenomenal single which, just like all of her tunes, will carry you away to another dimension. ‘Out of it’ is a song made from luscious synthesiser soundscapes, woven together with the same earnest and enchanting voice which has made us at Totally Wired Mag some of Darities top fans – yes we’ll fight you for the title. A songwriter who started out over nine years ago, Linsley has truly honed in her craft of putting the unexplainable bits of life into beautiful words and spectacular melodies. While every single one of her tracks is a treat for the ears, ‘Out of it’ is Darity at the most remarkable we’ve seen her yet.
‘Breakfast’ is the first track from the upcoming debut EP by singer/songwriter Haleluya Hailu. The tune is a tease at what is set to be a fantastically ‘80s fueled concoction of teen angst, honest emotions and real experiences. In Haleluya’s own words, ‘Breakfast’ is the epitome of ‘Heartbreak, parties… and pasta’. So grab your bowl of warm comfort food and let this track entice your excitement for the brilliant things to come in the upcoming EP.
Speaking of sonic concoctions to tantalize your eardrums, the new collaborative single ‘All The Little Things’ by band Tobisonics and their poetic partner in art, Chris Ingram, AKA Wee Scots Poet, is a tune that radio DJ’s around the world haven’t been able to leave alone. A feel-good tune for an upcoming summer of sun, it’s a reminder of a hopeful future as we leave the hard times behind us. Tobisonics and Wee Scots Poet are a partnership full of life, so dance your way into June with this phenomenal track at the very top of your playlists.
Featured on one of our very first Creators Monthly lists, Max Swan from Philadelphia entered the world of jazz at a young age, an important beginning that has since influenced his musical style as he began to navigate other genres, stretching the boundaries of pop, rock and soul. From his highly diverse mix of influences came his distinctive ‘electrosoul’ style. Max’s new single Leanin’ is the latest in his so far incredible discography. The tune is a fantastical blend of R&B and hip hop, married with elements of jazz and soul. As an artist who is constantly evolving, Max Swan is never afraid to dip his hands into new experimental sounds. His musical journey has gone from strength to strength, easy to see in each of his fantastic tunes.
The new indie-pop single ‘Village’ from singer/songwriter Merpire is a tune written straight from the heart, putting all of her feelings about self-doubt into one superb song. The single comes with the announcement of her debut album ‘Simulation Ride’ to be released this coming July under Warner’s ADA label. The album’s theme is about looking for those patches of clear blue sky when your mind is clouded by anxiety. Just as growth comes with facing your problems head-on, Merpire’s new single is just as much about her own personal growth since releasing her very first single performed live from her bedroom back in 2018.
Canadian artist Hotel Decor returns with a brand new single, ‘Could It Take Me Any Longer’, the title track from a highly anticipated upcoming EP. Like everything we’ve seen from Hotel Decor in the past, we’ve been gifted yet another deliciously lo-fi tune filled with life and soul. This is what we’ll be jamming out to this summer.
Speaking of silky slick lo-fi grooves, Italian artist Steve Fileti, known to us as Sacramento, just released the second single ‘MAMA’ from his upcoming album ‘Latte – The Italian Breakfast’. It’s a tune that will leave you dreaming of drives through the countryside, sunshine and ice cream. ‘Latte – The Italian Breakfast’ is out on the 11th of June, save the date!
