Most Anticipated Singer: Sigrid

Our most anticipated singer for this month is a 20 year-old Norwegian singer and songwriter, Sigrid Solbakk Raabe or we known worldwide as Sigrid. I don’t have any doubt at all to choose our most anticipated singer for this month because I’m really sure she’s gonna be a huge star really soon. I’m sure most of you already heard about her before. I’m also sure that most of you agree about how awesome she is, right? Her music definitely something really worth to hear.

I accidentally found her music through YouTube and I falling in love with one of her song called Plot Twist since the first hear. This song is an anthemic pop song with energetic and great melodies. Sigrid’s powerful voice also makes everything so perfect to hear. Her international debut single Don’t Kill My Vibe already become a successful single and got very positive vibes from around the world.

Sigrid debut EP’s, Don’t Kill My Vibe EP, already released since May 2017. This EP include four songs: Don’t Kill My Vibe, Plot Twist, Fake Friends, and Dynamite. All I can tell you is four songs is not enough, but this EP is definitely a great treat for our ears.

Mating Ritual

You may or may not have heard the name of Mating Ritual before. Mating Ritual is a solo project from Ryan Marshall Lawhon, the lead vocal and guitarist of Pacific Air. Actually, Mating Ritual isn’t a new name in the music industry. According to its official site, Lawhon first introduces the existence of Mating Ritual back in September 2014. Ever since then, Mating Ritual already released some singles and an EP.

Though clearly Mating Ritual has start its journey long before, I still choose it as our most anticipated artist this month because 1) I only found out about Mating Ritual couple weeks ago and instantly love the music and 2) next month, Mating Ritual will release its first full LP, called How You Gonna Stop It?. The LP will be release in two volumes, the first one, consist of 7 songs, has been released earlier this year while the last volume will be out this May, 3) the first volume already won my ¾ heart!

From its official Spotify account we can take a glimpse of how’s the LP sounds like. I myself feel it like a collision between an alternative rock and electro. And the impact of that collision is a burst of energies. Take How You Gonna Stop It? as an example, it is indeed a question that pops up in my mind when I hear this upbeat song, “how you gonna stop this urge to dance and sing along the question of growing up?” The same feeling also occurred in American Muscle and Second Chance. In this album, Mating Ritual worked with Lizzy Land in two songs, Cold and Night Lies. It was thanks to Cold that I found Mating Ritual’s music and began digging more of his music.

On his blog, he talked a bit about his nostalgic point of view of an album, where we used to patiently listening to a whole album because of the lack of ability to skip song when you hear it in CD or even a cassette. I couldn’t agree more with him. Those era train us to not only giving an album a full chance to steal our attention but also becoming a soundtrack to our memories. Though nowadays you can easily skip song in album, I believe, it is safe to say that, you won’t want to skip any song in this album. Yes, that is how good the first volume for me and the base reason why I pick Mating Ritual as our Most Anticipated musician this month.

Here’s the first volume of How You Gonna Stop It?, I hope you guys enjoy it as much as I do 🙂

Most Anticipated Singer: Ella Vos

Our most anticipated singer for this month is Ella Vos. For you who haven’t heard about this awesome musician, well I think you really should hear her music. Ella Vos is an indie electro-pop musician from Los Angeles. I accidentally found one of her song called Little Brother through Spotify and somehow, her beautiful voice and the simple melodies already distract my ears.

Ella Vos already has three singles. Her debut single, White Noise, was released last fall and got awesome response from the listener. White Noise success hit one million plays on Spotify within two weeks after its released and now, this song already hit 10 million plays. Something that rarely happened for musician, especially in their debut career. Her other singles, Little Brother and Down In Flames, also got a huge success with over a million plays after its released until now.

Actually, I have no doubt at all that she will be a huge singer really soon. Ella Vos already bring something different in her music. With down tempo  music character and the touch of electro instruments, piano, and electric guitar, combined with her soft and addicting voice, her music totally become an amazing treat for our ears. Can’t wait until she released her debut EP or maybe LP. It will be so awesome.

Most Anticipated Singer: Jess Delgado

Our most anticipated singer for this month come from a singer-songwriter from San Antonio, Texas, Jess Delgado. I found out about her awesome music and cover through one of TV series that I followed lately, Supergirl. Supergirl’s music director put one of Jess Delgado’s cover song, Smooth as a back song of a scene. I was stuck and amazed when I heard her attractive voice for the first time. Since then, I try to found out about her music.

Jess Delgado actually already start her music career since 2010. She already released some EPs and so many cover songs. One of my favorite song is Pumped Up Kicks (Foster The People). She made this song become so catchy with the rich tunes from the piano, snapping fingers, and the beat of the drums. Don’t forget about her awesome voice and the melodies makes me wanna dance every time I hear this song. Jess Delgado’s last EP, Flux, already released since November 14th 2016 include three songs: Rule The World, If I Tell You, and It’s Your Time. All songs in this EP definitely something really worth to hear. Definitely can’t wait to hear her full studio album.

IDER

I’ve been talking about this duo for months, but haven’t properly introduce them as our one of Most Anticipated artists. IDER is a stage name for Megan Markwick and Lily Somerville, a London-based duo. I have lots expectations and anticipation toward their, hopefully, EP or LP which, again, hopefully will be out next year.

The expectation come from their 4 released singles, which are SorryPulseKing Ruby, and Million. By hearing those singles you get a glimpse how sure IDER with the colour of their music. The quality of their singles, how neat they produce them, are pro and make me wonder why don’t they release their EP soon. As a duo, the harmony between their voice sounds effortless, they complete each other part. The way they arrange their melody, the piano and percussion, build an enchanting mood of electro music that leaving the listener to wanting to hear it again and again. You need to listen to their music and see for yourself why you and I have to put IDER to our list of Most Anticipated artists in 2017.

Most Anticipated Singer: Ry-Lo

I think 2017 will be an exciting year for music industry. So far, I already found some interesting new music from new musicians who will released their debut EP next year. One of them is an alternative pop singer from Nashville, United States, Ry-Lo. Quite different from what I know about Nashville as one of the best city who already produced so many great country musicians, Ry-Lo bring alternative pop in her music and introduced us with her own music character .

I found her music through Discover Weekly in Spotify and I feel so excited when I heard her music for the first time. There’s something powerful in her music and her voice. Ry-Lo already released three songs: Grand Canyon, New Friend, and Come Close. One of her single called Grand Canyon is a powerful song with a great sound of electric guitar and the beat of the drum. Somehow, the melodies a little bit remind me with Coldplay, but Ry-Lo definitely has something unique in her music.

Somehow, I have a feeling that Ry-Lo will be huge singer really soon so I choose her as our Most Anticipated Singer. Definitely can’t wait to hear her debut EP or maybe an album. For now, try to hear one of her songs which also my favorite too and let us know your opinion about Ry-Lo. Thank you and enjoy the music. 🙂
