Indie | Jack O’Brien Debuts With Indie EP Boo Hoo

Posted by on June 13, 2018

Berklee School of Music is a breeding ground for young talent. It’s hard to keep tabs on everyone who comes out of there, but the NorCal raised Jack O’Brien of is a name you’ll need to know. The recent graduate made his way back across the US, but ended up settling in Seattle and created his debut project, Boo Hoo. The release is made up of five singer/songwriter tracks that keep a simple, chill tone. The minimal style works because of Jack’s immense talents that we hope to see more of as time passes.

Indie, Pop | Kap Slap & Shaylen Release “Hangover Love” Just in Time For Valentines Day

Posted by on February 9, 2018

Love is in the air as Kap Slap is back just in time for Valentines day with his latest single, “Hangover Love” featuring Shaylen. Following a stream of steady releases in 2017 which included “Fucking Amazing (feat. Cal)” [from Timeflies] and Apple Music’s A-List Dance, “If We Were Alone“, the LA-based DJ/producer decided to team up with the delightful Shaylen to illustrate the age-old adage, “Love is best found at the bottom of a bloody Merry”. Bristled bass plucks, playful percussion and Shaylen’s sultry vocals help plunge the listener into the most enjoyable morning after they’re sure to have in quite some time. Be on the lookout for their forthcoming Lyric Video slated to release on Proximity later this month. Check this one on Apple Music and Spotify starting 2/9.

Chill, Indie | Kai Straw Exceeds All Expectation With GUN LP

Posted by on February 7, 2018

Kai Straw’s album GUN is something I’ve been waiting on since I heard the first single several months ago. A couple other singles have made their way out since then and they had me at the edge of my seat. The thing is when you anticipate something, you create an expectation for it. Whatever I had in mind was completely shattered when I ran through this LP the first time. It’s just incredible. The song writing is as good as it gets and Kai gracefully bounces between genres on this one making it a journey from start to finish. If you could only listen to one album this week, you’d make it this one.

Indie | You’re Going To Remember Brandon Bonine’s Name

Posted by on August 22, 2017

Raised in Motor City, Brandon Bonine is an artist you should get to know. Earlier last week he dropped a video for “Remember My Name” directed by Diego Cruz that pulls on the heart strings. Entirely self-produced “Remember My Name” pays homage to the loss of a grandparent and relationship. Of the single Brandon explained, “I wanted a song and video that showed the heartbreak of growing old with someone, losing them, and living in their shadow.” Make sure you have a box of tissues next to you while you watch the video. This one is a real tearjerker.

It is just me or is someone cutting onions in here?

Indie | Quentin Moore’s “Booty Sweat” Is A Track You Need To Know

Posted by on July 23, 2017

Here at FreshNewTracks.com, we primarily focus on pop, dance, and hip-hop. Sometimes you find a song that’s so good that it breaks all the rules. That song is “Booty Sweat”. The artist? Quentin Moore from Dallas, Texas. We found him on a billboard on I-30 advertising his brand new “Black Privilege” album that released in June. Quentin is a triple threat. He can sing. He can write. And, he can produce. If that’s not reason enough to listen I don’t know what is. Be sure to catch Quentin on tour and include “Booty Sweat” in all your favorite playlists.

Quentin Moore is an artist you need to keep an eye on.

Hip-Hop, Indie | Ash Riser Goes All In With Massive Ghosts LP

Posted by on July 12, 2017

It’s not often you see seventeen singles on an LP from an independent artist. That didn’t matter to producer/emcee Ash Riser whose Ghosts album comes in deep with that many tracks. From start to finish, he doesn’t disappoint in the slightest. Ghosts provides variety and skill that is unmatched by most artists today. As you may imagine from the name and cover art, this project is steeped with dark tones and a certain savage edge to it that must be experienced. It’s not often you sit back and absorb a whole album, but do do so with this massive LP.

Indie | Kai Straw Preps For Next Album With “The Recipe”

Posted by on June 16, 2017

If you don’t know Kai Straw, you need to. He’s a unique talent whose musical journey is deep and diverse. His last LP, Toothpick, was a masterpiece and he’s already getting ready for another album release. That album has officially launched with the release of “The Recipe.” This single sees Kai Straw taking a more pop-driven approach to his work, but he keeps his signature indie style at the forefront of the record. It’s a major tune that is perfect for those Summer drives that so many of us will be taking. Share it in good company and bask in the loving vibes this one brings.
