"Wrecked" - Imagine Dragons

Released: July 2, 2021

Album: Upcoming Mercury - Act 1

Highlights:

  • Incredible visual video that accompanies the audio track
  • Light, rolling guitar chords that give the song an easy, breezy vibe
  • The drastic change in the vocal range between verses and chorus, going from soft and elongated drawls to hard yells

Standout Lyrics: "They say that the time will heal it, the pain will go away / But everything, it reminds me of you and it comes in waves / The way you laugh when your shoulders shook, the time you took / To teach me all that you had taught / Tell me, how am I supposed to move on?"

"Lease on Life" - Andy Grammar

Released: June 27, 2021

Album: Upcoming fifth album 

Highlights:

  • Quick-paced guitar fingering hand-in-hand with the jouncy beat
  • Stand-out bass percussion that precedes the chorus, giving it more power
  • Grammar's triumphant and optimistic take on life echoing in the chorus

Standout Lyrics: "You're the side where the grass is green / Yeah you shake me like a tambourine / No jerseys but we make quite a team"

 

"You For Me" - Sigala and Rita Ora

Released: July 2, 2021

Album: Standalone Single

Highlights:

  • Perfect summer pop banger
  • Bright, electronic beats gushing from the opening to the end
  • Vibrant synths interlaying with Ora's glamorous pop vocals

Standout Lyrics: "Fingers are holding you right at the edge / You're slipping out of my hands / Keeping my secrets all up in my head / I'm scared that you won't want me back"

"Don't Pass on Love" - Gashi

Released: June 29, 2021

Album: Single

Highlights:

  • Pleasantly subdued pop track oozing with charisma

Standout Lyrics: "You know my girl never do no wrong / So beautiful, never take too long / Ain't waiting for no side piece / Girl, you my dime piece"

 

"Starting Line" - Luke Hemmings

Released: June 30, 2021

Album: Upcoming When Facing the Things We Turn Away From

Highlights:

  • The dramatic piano notes that seem to escalate with rising tension
  • Hemmings vocals going higher and higher until reaching the introduction of a faster pace and rock-heavy elements
  • The amazing distinction from the slower, soft-induced first half of the song and the breathtaking, atmospheric second one

Standout Lyrics: "Tell mе, am I broken? / I can never lеave / Biting on my tongue and / Checking if it bleeds / Oh, is it lost on me?"
