This honeysuckle rock track is hypnotic, especially the chorus, as the melodies go back and forth in mesmerizing motions.

UK Folk singer-songwriter Roger Perelló documents the feeling of heaviness after a breakup with the song “Butterflies”. This gorgeous acoustic folk texture has a lot of diverse textures that make this song an instant attraction. There are a lot of textures in the instrumentation with the guitar strumming, and in the vocals with the vocal styles and the harmonies. Roger Perelló’s vocals are very soothing and soulful as his vocals offer a glimpse into the storytelling of “Butterflies”. It is a perfect song to relax to this weekend.
Australian Indie Rock The Citradels released their first single “To Antares” from their new album Conductor. The band actually used an analog modular synthesizer that the band built themselves from scratch for this album. The Citradels took influences from electronic pioneers Mort Garson and Pierre Henry to create a hazy, warm soundscape inside “To Antares” that is filled with dazy synth riffs. There are minimal vocals featured in this track, but when it does appear, it adds a unique layer to this fuzzy track that is out of this world.

Americana Peter Rogan brings in a groovy kind of rock with his newest track “My Kind Strange”. It is about loving all the strange things about your person. Every note in this track is so addictive to listen as Rogan mixes rock, Americana, and blues to create this driven track. I just love those backing vocals and guitar riffs! But, I love everything about this song because blues-rock is something so special and you listen over and over because it is so alluring!
