July may have ended on a rainy note, but that didn’t apply to the final new tracks of the month. As we say goodbye to July and look ahead to what August has in store for us, check out these new tracks to give you that spring in your step or get you in your feels.
KURSUNADA – ADIE
Adie makes magic once more with this heart-fluttering and moving love song that will make you wish you had a man like Adie in your life.
PSYCHEDELIC SWITCH – CARLY RAE JEPSEN
While the summer sun may be long gone, that doesn’t mean we can’t still feel the vibes, such is the case with Carly Rae Jepsen’s new album, The Loveliest Time, which sounds as sweet as its title.
DESIRE – CALVIN HARRIS AND SAM SMITH
The club into the late night is about to get popping with this synth dance-pop summer anthem.
LIHIM – ARTHUR MIGUEL
Artur Miguel hits the sweet spot in his new tracks with vibes that are immaculate.
BONA BONA – TREASURE
While YG lead singles can *sometimes* be formulaic, whenever they do the marching band sound, you know it’s a bop, such as the case with TREASURE’s new single.
BUKANG LIWAYWAY – NOBITA
The OPM’s band’s debut 8-track album finds them expressing their introspective take on life, optimism, and companionship with an affinity for soul-baring production and vulnerable songwriting.
ROCK BOTTOM BLUES – BENJAMIN KHENG AND JAMES REID
Benjamin and James deliver a sad bop that delves into the depths of emotions experienced during difficult times and toxic relationships. Equal parts somber and dance, the song explores the pain of feeling stuck in a cycle of self-redemption and longing for redemption.
BEHIND THE CURTAIN – MISAMO
When TWICE’s J-line met to discuss their debut, the sub-unit decided that they wanted to make history, and that’s exactly what they did.
BEWITCHED – LAUFEY
True to its title, Bewitched is charmed with love magic about what it feels like to fall in love for the first time and elevated with the inclusion of the London-based Philharmonia Orchestra.
KEEP STILL – CLARA BENIN
Clara captures the anxiety and unease of growing up in this indie-pop tune that feels tailor-made for the OST of our 20s.
IT’S YOU – ILLEST MORENA
No sad baddies allowed is the theme for the Pinay artist’s R&B post-breakup jam.
LOVE ME A LITTLE – SHOWNU X HYUNGWON
This MONSTA X sub-unit charms with their simple yet seductive R&B debut.
SALAMAT – YENG CONSTANTINO
Salamat (Yeng’s Version)? That’s what we get in this updated and reimagined version of the OPM classic that hits just as hard as the original.
YAYAKAPIN – YES MY LOVE
With its captivating lyrics that evoke tender and affectionate feelings shared between loved ones and laid-back vibe, the song promises to captivate listeners while showcasing a softer side of the group.
EVE, PSYCHE & THE BLUEBEARD’S WIFE REMIX – LE SSERAFIM AND RINA SAWAYAMA
Another week, another remix of Eve, Psyche & The Bluebeard’s wife. But this time, it’s with Rina Sawayama, so we known it’s going to eat as the two artists declare to the world that no taboos will ever stop them from moving beyond what is laid out for them.
IDK – JASMINE YEN
The 19-year-old singer-songwriter’s debut single is a light-hearted, yet powerful pop-R&B tune about a girl’s journey to discovering autonomy and self-love.
COASTLINE – GABBA
Gabba embarks on a new artistic journey with his solo project with a debut album, Recollections. The album captures the essence of Gabba’s personal and musical journey, serving as a musical score for different moments and core memories in his life. The 14-track album presents a timeline of his experiences – a reflection of the ebbs and flows, highs and lows that have shaped him as a way of journaling in music form. The album showcases his signature brisk guitar and drumming styles but also incorporates textures inspired by his musical heroes and the organic ambiences of the places he holds dear.
WHEN WE WERE YOUNG – FRANKIE BIRD
Simultaneously breezy, wistful and rooted in her firsthand experience, When We Were Young explores the consequences that come in the wake of mixing music, love and business.
