Songs Under The Radar: 11/30

Every week tons of music gets sifted through to find the next big hits. Here’s a sample of what you may hear on the radio in the next few months:

First up this week is “Feeling of Falling” by Cheat Codes and Kim Petras. These two artist have very similar sounds that they like to use. This song follows pattern and is good to see the two of them collab on a song like this.

“Bye Bye” by Gryffin features vocals from a relatively new artist named Ivy Adara. It’s not uncommon for random females to sing vocals on an EDM track. We will see if this is a one track deal or if things will build.

Kwame is not to be confused with the old American rapper from the 80’s. He is a new upcoming rapper in 2018 and he’s not American which makes his market appeal harder. His lyrics in “CLOUDS.” flow smoothly throughout. Give him a listen and try to find the current Kwame.

“Call You” by Cash Cash reminds me a little of “Call on Me” by Eric Prydz. Similar sounds and title names probably isn’t a coincidence. The previous song was looped constantly for hours and maybe this one will be too.

Hilltop Hoods is back bringing old sounding rap into 2018. “Leave Me Lonely” is a rap song where there is an accent, but is still understandable if you try to rap it in front of your friends. Plus they aren’t well known in America, so you can show off as well.

Songs Under The Radar: 10/12

Paul Kelly’s  And Death Shall Have No Domination is a very folk sounding song.  Great uplifting lyrics if you’re having a down day.  Also is very simplistic instruments that will bring you back in time.

Another one from Jess Glynne is on the Under the Radar.  Based on the singles she is putting out, it seems like it will do pretty well in sales. Check out her latest hit below.

Every once and awhile, fairly unknown rappers get a break.  Carmouflage Rose may finally have his time.  Not too many big artists put out music this week, so it allows smaller artists to reach more.  Give him a listen and see where he goes.

Cheat Codes released another semi-sad, semi-happy tune.  They know their audience well and are able to push out what fans want.  They have to be careful to not do what The Chainsmokers’ did with over saturation of similar sounding music.  For now, I’ll keep listening to their songs.

What I Know Now is a slower beat good for riding around town or just chilling at home.  Wiz Khalifa is also featured on this track, so it is almost always guaranteed to be a hit.  Listen to this when you’re in a deep thinking mood.
