Charli Adams ft. Ruston Kelly – Headspace
Charismatic, indie sensation Charli Adams shares captivating new effort “Headspace” featuring Ruston Kelly – the latest cut taken from her debut album Bullseye, set for release on July 16th via Color Study. The follow-up to acclaimed previous single “Cheer Captain” out last month, “Headspace” sees Adams step away from her conservative upbringing in Alabama and instead focus on her memories of romance in this coming-of-age cut. “‘Headspace’ is about being so in love with someone that it physically hurts really bad,” the songwriter reveals. “When you’re almost mad at yourself for still loving this person. It’s kind of a contradiction in the chorus ‘I stood at the door of your place, wondering how to get out of this headspace.’ You’re standing at their front door wondering how to not think about them.”

Monolink – Harlem River / Falling
With the worldwide release of his second studio album Under Darkening Skies just weeks away, German singer-songwriter, electronic music producer, and multi instrumentalist Monolink unveils two more tracks taken from the impending long player, as he drops his breathtaking new EP, “Harlem River / Falling.” Igniting the double-sided cut with the spellbinding opener “Harlem River,” Monolink shares his cover of Kevin Morby’s iconic 2013 single of the same name, delivering a sophisticated blend of warped synth leads and trippy vocal refrains, all brought together underneath a veil of slick, organic instrumentation. On the flip, Monolink lowers the tempo considerably for the emphatic closer “Falling,” by exploring a rich tapestry of contrasting timbres and tones. Combining lethargic, stripped-back polyrhythms, intricately-layered textures, and powerful chord stabs with trademark flair, Monolink concludes a remarkable EP release whilst simultaneously offering a tantalizing preview of one the most eagerly-awaited album releases of 2021.
