1) MIDHEACH – Little Rose (Winter Solstice Mix)
Little Rose (Winter Solstice Mix), the newest single from Midheach, is a banger.

2) KAREN HARDING – Letter To My Friend
It’s easy to get lost in the deluge of new music that comes out every day, but this 4-track EP from Irish singer-songwriter Karen Harding is worth a listen.
Her latest album Letter To My Friend is full of acoustically-driven folk-pop songs that are reminiscent of artists like Jamie N Commons and Florence Welch. The EP also features a mix of Australian influences and contemporary romantic pop sounds.
The opening track “I’ve Got A Secret” has a strong early 2000s vibe that reminds me of Coldplay and Rufus Wainwright, while “Drive Away” has an indie romantic sound that brings to mind Imogen Heap or Birdy. The final track “Letter To My Friend” is a beautiful ballad with a hint of country influence (think Sheryl Crow).
Karen Harding’s voice is strong and sultry—perfect for singing about heartbreak—and her lyrics are poignant without being too sentimental or cheesy. Check it out, visit the artist’s website and follow on Spotify.
3) DAVE MOHAN – Arioso In Red
Dave Mohan is an indie pop artist from London, UK. His single “Arioso In Red” is an acoustic and classical love song with female and male vocals.
It is a relaxing and easy listening tune that you can listen to during your free time or maybe in the background while you are studying, in a reflexive vibe or in a special moment with your loved one.
The song has a classic sound that is reminiscent of the 1960s. It has an anthemic feel to it, as well as being cinematic.
In this single, Dave Mohan’s vocals are supported by piano and cello, creating an easy listening experience that will transport you to another world.
His voice has a classic sound that hearkens back to some of the greats of yesteryear, but with enough modern flair that it doesn’t feel outdated or old-fashioned.
The lyrics are pure poetry—full of imagery and symbolism that makes it easy for listeners to get lost in their own inner worlds while listening. The entire song feels like a love letter from one person to another, it’s hard not to feel something when listening to this song!

4) ANIMATE – Unbound
ANIMATE‘s Unbound is a song that takes you back to the days of classic pop rock, acoustic folk, and easy-listening music. It’s the kind of song that you would have heard on the radio in the 60s or 70s—it has that retro style to it. It’s coming from Italy, Lecce, and the European influences are evident.
The lyrics are pretty basic but they get the point across: this is a love song. The kind of love that makes you feel like there’s nothing else in the world but you and your partner—the kind of love that makes you feel like you can do anything in life together.
The vocals are soft and soothing, just like they should be for this song. The instrumentation is simple enough not to distract from the lyrics but complex enough that it doesn’t sound like a recording from an old cassette tape either! It’s retro-style music with modern quality.
All in all, this is an easy listen with simple lyrics about love. If you’re looking for something relaxing or just want some background music for a special occasion, then definitely check out ANIMATE’s Unbound, visit the artist’s YouTube and follow on Spotify.
5) ANJA BJÖRK – With Every Heartbeat
Anja Björk is a singer-songwriter from Umeå, Sweden. She’s also an acoustic pop artist with a contemporary sound and Nordic influences. Her single With Every Heartbeat is an example of this—it’s relaxing and melodic, but it also has that playful, energy-filled vibe that you’d expect from a pop song.
The song starts out with the sound of a tuneful piano, which is followed by the subtle strumming of an acoustic guitar. Then Anja’s voice comes in: “Baby we can make it, all alright, we can make it better sometimes.”
Her voice has a distinctively beautiful Scandinavian accent to it—but not one that’s too strong for non-Scandinavian listeners to understand. It’s just enough to let you know where she’s coming from. Her smooth voice will put you in a relaxed state of mind.
This track is perfect for those days when you want to relax and unwind: turn it on while you’re just chilling or getting ready for bed; play it while you’re cooking dinner or cleaning up afterwards; listen to it while working on your laptop at home or taking a walk outside in nature. It’s for the whole day, so you must include this one on your playlist as well. Check it out, visit the artist’s social networks and follow on Spotify.
6) CRAIGOLOGY – Garden Tourist
The United States is a beautiful country, but it can be difficult to find the time to visit all of its many locales. It’s a continental territory—you can see it, especially when it comes to getting from place to place and closely watching the many different cultures.
That’s why we’re so happy for Craigology: he’s created an EP with a series of songs that transport us all over the US without ever having to leave our homes.
His latest album, Garden Tourist, is a six-track collection of electronic jazz and chillout music that does a great job of giving us a taste of Florida without actually going there ourselves.
The album opens with “Evening Whispers”, an easy-listening song with some soft undertones and lounge beats that make it perfect for listening while you’re relaxing by the pool or driving around town on your way to brunch with friends.
Then comes “Yellow Croton”, which brings a soft reggae vibe and is more cinematic than anything else: it features some retro soul sounds that sound like they were ripped right out of an old movie soundtrack.
This helps create this feeling as if you’re standing at the bar in an old speakeasy somewhere in New York City; then it gives way to “Blue River”, which has more of a Blues lounge feel with some classic sound too. Check it out, visit the artist’s YouTube and follow on Spotify.
