Joji - Glimpse of Us
80
'Glimpse of Us' is Joji's first single since his sophomore album, 'Nectar', moving towards something stripped down, giving listeners a gentle, gorgeous ballad. The vocals from Joji are a hint disappointing as he doesn't change things up significantly, really letting a rawness shine as we can't help but stop to listen carefully to listen to what he has to say, hypnotizing us. The production is pretty good, using a spectacular piano instrumental backed by beautiful effects to enhance the ... read more

Lewis Capaldi - Pointless
75
'Pointless' is a regular Lewis Capaldi song but it has just the right amount of pretty elements to prevent it from being completely pointless, although as a single, it fails to get me excited for 'Broken By Desire To Be Heavenly Sent'. The vocals from Lewis Capaldi are underwhelming as his voice sounds unpleasantly rough in the verses while his passionate, loud vocals on the chorus are fine and accomplish their goal of highlighting the lyrics from that section of the song. The production is ... read more
Taylor Swift - Midnights
74
'Midnights' is Taylor Swift's tenth album and it marks her return to synthpop, teaming up with Jack Antonoff to put together thirteen songs that were described as '“the stories of 13 sleepless nights scattered throughout (her) life.”' Opening up to a solid first half, that leans on sizzling synths and a great range of drums, Taylor paints a peaceful, pretty midnight through really nice vocal performances. Sadly, the second half seems to move away from the low-intensity synthpop that ... read more
Lewis Capaldi - Forget Me
80
'Forget Me' is Lewis Capaldi's lead single to his sophomore album and it feels fresh due to the unexpected upbeat tempo of the beat, supported by one of Lewis's regular passionate performances. The vocals are super strong as expected as the chorus especially sounds extremely painful, with the lighter, repetitive bridge giving us a break from how overwhelming Lewis's vocals gets. The production is what really captures my attention as I'm used to hearing Lewis on mellow piano beats while this ... read more
KA$HDAMI - komission
60
'kommision' continues the hot streak of singles dropped by KA$HDAMI before he releases 'WORLD DAMINATION', with this being the most basic song he released all year, having originally dropped on SoundCloud almost a year ago. The vocals from KA$HDAMI are nice as he manages to work his vocals to suit his frequent flow switches, sounding uninterested on his verse which in this case is both a positive and negative. The production is shiny, with the instrumentals lighting up my ears while the drums ... read more
Ssgkobe - ​Luv U Back
90
'Luv U Back' is ssgkobe's lead single to his debut album, a short and sweet single where we witness ssgkobe digging back into his melodic bag after a while, hinting the rhapsodic sound we'd expect from an album called 'Euphoria'. The vocals from ssgkobe are beautiful, a bit drained on his chorus and verse while extremely satisfying when the vocal effects are added on to it, making him sound like a robot in love, intriguing to say the least. The production is pretty, the drums dropping so ... read more
