Hi, there all music lovers! Let’s get started by giving you as much information as possible about our Indie Pop and EDM Music selection of the week.

When you listen to music, your brain releases chemicals like dopamine and oxytocin, which can help you feel pleasure and connection. You can also use music for self-expression, as a tool for getting in touch with your feelings or even as an outlet for stress.

1) LONELYKLOWN – Think About U
LonelyKlown is a London-based producer who creates electronic pop music. He’s been making waves for some time now, and has recently released his first single, “Think About U.”
The song is a mix of the genres of synthpop, synth wave, alternative pop, and dance. It has male vocals and is influenced by UK culture. The song is quirky—the lyrics are amazing and they’re also relatable. The hook gets stuck in your head after just one listen because it’s so catchy!
A track with this level of clarity and crispness is not overproduced or polished to the point where it becomes dull. Having instrumental breakdowns to break up the songs at the appropriate time adds a great deal of variety to the songs without feeling forced or extraneous.

2) MARQELECTRONICA – Nervous
MARQELECTRONICA is a British-based electronic musician whose music blends elements of EDM, pop, and deep house. His latest single, “Nervous,” is a perfect example of his unique style: it’s a classic piece of electronica with a catchy, commercial vocal hook that will have you dancing all over your apartment.
Marqeletronica’s cheeky vocals are accompanied by echoey guitar hooks and electro-stabs to create a deep house-edged dance track. The story revolves around a lover who is annoying you and getting on your nerves.
It’s a perfect track for getting ready to go out on the town or working out at the gym. It’s got a classic sound that will bring you back to the early 2000s—the kind of music people listened to in their cars when they were driving around their hometowns. And yet it still feels modern, because of the way it combines electronic elements with vocals.

Clare Easdown is a female artist from Menai, Australia who has been making waves in the music scene for some time now.

I wonder if you have ever been in the position of wanting someone in your life to reciprocate a deep and smashing feeling of love that you have for them?
This song is a love song and it is called ‘Wrap Me Up’. This is a cry for love, a cry for being held, a cry for being fully enveloped in a pure beautiful cloth of love. As the song develops, there is a mixture of suspense and open-hearted emotion that almost begs the listener to ‘Wrap Me Up’
A track with this level of clarity and crispness is not overproduced or polished to the point where it becomes dull. Having instrumental breakdowns to break up the song at the appropriate time adds a great deal of variety to the songs without feeling forced or extraneous.

As a freelance session musician, composer, and sound engineer based in Sydney, Australia, Blair Djuna has a background in music production and composition.
The passion he has for all things audio has allowed him to become both a competent musician and performer, as well as someone who has taken his passion for audio production and composition to the next level.
As Blair Djuna’s very well-crafted “Don’t Tell Me” roars with a funk-infused modern pop sound, complete with many engaging melodies and polished production, it is a fantastically rousing modern pop song with a witty and undeniably confident sense of personality that is suffused with catchy hooks and an undeniably confident style.
As a result of Blair’s charismatic vocal prowess, “Don’t Tell Me” is a track that you just can’t help but move to, and no matter what you’re listening to, whether it’s the catchy melody lines, the foot-stomping groove, or the absorbing sonic textures, this is one of those songs that will satisfy many pop fans.
