Weekend’s Tunes Are…
“Of The Obviously” by Lomma

It’s a real nice listen!
Minneapolis-based Indie Rock artist Once More, Autumn explores acoustic sounds in his latest single “Scarlet”. The tune builds on themes of loss, longing, and awakening. Deeply personal lyrics unfold in Once More, Autumn’s melodies in a very endearing way. The melodies are present in a very persona and down-to-earth way where the feelings are bare in the stripped-back instrumentation and vocals. Even there is a hit on vulnerability in the vocal’s tones. The listener shouldn’t miss out on the surprise at the very end.
Wil Van Winkle & the Sixpins is back with another track entitled “Colored Pictures”, It is an Americana track that is all about meeting somebody and losing them in a whirlwind adventure. It is a really laid-back track with a melody that progresses really nicely with the mellow vocals and the wicked guitar lines. It is the perfect track to listen in the track as it has calming rock elements, but there are nice little surprises that listeners shouldn’t miss out on.
Beach of Diamonds explodes on the music scene with their high-energy single “Can’t Wait”. It reminisces about the young teenage love in the past but also regrets how he was too shy to stand up for the love of his life. The track is a perfect pop-rock track with catchy hooks, especially in the chorus. But also, the high energy makes the song fun enough to dance and sing along. Are you ready to sing along with this track?
“Keeping My Number” by Render Ghosts
Synthpop artist Render Ghosts is ready to show the world their effortlessly melodic alternative pop with the track “Keeping My Number”.
