Crossing Corners - Kyle Meadows
Indie singer-songwriter Kyle Meadows crafts the perfect springtime indie song with his single, “Crossing Corners.” He originally wrote it in high school, but completely changed the melody and wrote a chorus to make it better fit to the sound he wanted.
On this track, Meadow’s gentle, soothing vocals combine perfectly with the rhythmic guitar, calming piano, and other overall beautiful background instruments. It carries with it a sense of nostalgia to remind the listener of lulling, happy days and killing time with friends under the blazing summer sun.

Without Your Love - &around
London-based singer/DJ/producer &around, also known as Sam Simon, has released a new single, “Without Your Love.” This echoey, mystical track surrounds the listener with a beauty blend of sound from literally all over the world. Simon recorded bits of this song on multiple recording devices as he traveled to Bali, Australia, New Zealand, the Philippines and Vietnam for six months. The different influences of this song are mixed together perfectly with Simon’s masterful production skills to create a chill, beachy uniform instrumental. The vocals are just soft enough to get the listener to focus more on the electronic production, but they still stand out as another enchanting part of this single.

Falling Away - Plutinos
This song masterfully boasts a echoey, acoustic sound with hazy vocals that blend very well with the background music. It’s a perfect rainy day song; its gloomy, mysterious sound invokes a sense of nostalgia that I often associate with looking outside of a window on a rainy day. While slow and simple, “Falling Away” holds a certain depth created by its beautiful fusion of vocal and instruments.
