Brandyn Burnette - Escape

If there one male vocalist that we adore more than anyone else, it's prolific Los Angeles-based singer/songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Brandyn Burnette, who continues to deliver one fantastic progressive soul/pop gem after another. Now following last year's release of his second EP, State I'm In, which has so far amassed 2.8 million streams on Spotify, as well as collaborations with Elephante and Boehm and taking time to also work on his side project Cosmos & Creature with the illustrious and equally talented Molly Moore (who also just shared a new collaboration with Win and Woo earlier today called "Killer With A Smile"), Brandyn returns with his new single called "Escape", which also serves as the first track to be lifted from his forthcoming EP, Feature Films, due out later this year. Produced by Brandyn himsef, "Escape" seamlessly blends stogether soulful dark vocals, deep beats and bright pysch rock guitar whilst one again showcasing his unique progressive pop soul sound.

Boy Epic - Kanye's in My Head

Following on from last year's release of his previous two singles, "Scars" and "Dirty Mind", the latter which has so far amassed 2 million views on YouTube and earned him praise from the likes of DIY and The Line of Best Fit, among several other tastemaking music blogs, Dallas native Boy Epic now returns with yet another cinematic pop masterpiece called "Kanye's in My Head", a seductive blend of moody atmospherics, buoyant electronics and a thick, sultry beat. "'Kanye's in My Head' is a reference to pop culture," says Boy Epic. "We all know Kanye West, and in my humble opinion, he is my generation's 'Rock Star' for many different reasons. The song is not directly about Kanye; it's about a mindset."
