🎧 Middle Part – ‘Heartbeat’

Middle Part is the moniker of Brooklyn-based synth-pop artist Andrew Selkōw. We recently came across his new single, and this thing has been on some serious repeat ever since. It’s a real hypnotic number that hits in all the right places. Now, it’s time for you to hear what we’re talking about.

“It’s supposed to paint a picture of me watching myself fall apart. The song is centered around that chaotic feeling somebody in their 20’s can feel when they’re learning to navigate life or what  “the point of it all ” is. “Heartbeat” is a collage of separate experiences of isolation and an internal dialogue stretching from Nashville, Alaska, and New York.”

Check out Heartbeat in the embed, and be sure to hit up his socials below for more going forward. And, while we’ve got your attention, listen to his last single here … trust us when we say, you won’t be disappointed.

🎧 Kowloon – ‘English Morning’

We first told you about Los Angeles-based synth-pop artist Kowloon back in late May. Well, he’s back with new music, and just like the first single, Paradise, we can’t seem to get enough. It’s a smooth, laid back number that sounds like a missing track straight off Destroyer‘s album, Kaputt.

🎧 Marlon Chaplin – ‘Alternate End’

Just last week we told you about a new track from Marlon Chaplin called Are You Ok?. Well, he’s back at it with another song and it might very well be as good as the previous one. It’s a dreamy synth-driven number you won’t soon forget.

Check out Alternate End in embed and be sure to hit up his socials for more going forward. Looks like Mr. Chaplin is heading in a different direction with these last two singles and we have no problem with it at all.
