Who: LA based artist Talker has been after our hearts from her first song. After the release of her new EP, Wax, it’s safe to say it’s not just puppy love—we’ll be in enamored forever.
What: It’s hard to put a finger on what sets Talker apart but we think it’s her personality coming through in every note. If you haven’t been acquainted yet, her new single “Suck Up” is a great introduction.
Why: “Suck Up” switches back and forth from slowed down verses with a heavy emphasis on guitar to a bonafide pop sing-along chorus. It pairs great with your morning cup of coffee, providing a moment of rest before breaking into a track that’ll give you more of a pep in your step than the cup in your hand.
“Suck Up is a song that has really resonated with me lately, and I think a lot of people will feel the same. We’re all multifaceted people with so many sides to us—sometimes it feels like those sides don’t all line up. And sometimes I wish I were someone else entirely, but I try to just fake it—almost sucking up to whatever version I am on a given day so that I’ll like myself. But I’m finally realizing that all of those different pieces don’t have to be at odds, and I can just lean into whoever I am whenever I feel like it.” – Talker
Who: After sharing the stage with Set It Off, Silverstein, and more, New Lingo is ready to share take over your headphones. With a new EP produced by James Paul Wisner, there’s nowhere to go but up for the St. Louis, MO alternative rock band.
What: Head down “Memory Lane”, the band’s killer new single with major Billy Talent vibes.
Why: When alternative rock is done right, it can sweep you away to your own feature film. Are you the hero, the protagonist, or an extra rocking out in their car? It doesn’t matter—there’s no wrong way to enjoy a song like “Memory Lane”.
