…This is the Inbox Jukebox:
Jean Dawson – “3 HEADS*”
“3 HEADS*” will worm its way into your chest and start its own beat—that’s just how monsters do it and Jean Dawson is about to kick your speakers over Kaiju-style. Sometimes raging with a roughness, sometimes spacey and smooth like surfing stars, “3 HEADS*” belongs to you from the moment you hear it—not just as an anthem but to show off all your monstrous sides and never let the villagers or the pitchforks stop you.
Emei – “Trust Issues”
We specialize in bad-girl-bangers, so don’t act surprised when “Trust Issues” infiltrates your device of choice. The beat is sneakier than a cat burglar but scrappier than a mean-queen with a mad on. Emei’s vocals skim along the edges of sweet and glittering-ly salty. So you know it’s tasty.
Rook Monroe – “I Did Drugs For You”
Let your love be your drug as Rook Monroe spins this whimsy-laced daydream. Lyrically reminiscent of “Little Wing”. Sonically, a fluttering acoustic-esque funk played on a seaside cliff. “I Did Drugs For You” is just the buzz you need to chase away the woe for the weekend.
Chloe George – “Runaway Blue”
From indie skating to jazzy vocalizing to poppin’ rock, Chloe George is shaking us up while spinning us ’round with the mercurial and melodic “Runaway Blue”. It’s the catchy-chaos that does it for us.
