Music Monday: Tom & Collins, Pretty Pink, Ilan Bluestone, Jared & Mill, Dillon Francis, and Moonglow

When Mexican house duo Tom & Collins met singer and songwriter Rachel West during a visit to Los Angeles, the creativity just flowed. Together, after hours spent bouncing ideas off one another and experimenting in the studio, they released “Only One,” a gorgeous, funky gem that incorporates guitars and a thick, driving bassline.

Now, fans can feast their eyes on the official music video, which follows the journey of a mysterious celluloid phantom as it ventures out of a lush tropical forest and across different scenes of city life in Mexico. Across the adventure, one is forced to question just what the phantom figure might be and what it could be searching for – life? A new beginning? Home? Watch the video and decide for yourself.

German deep house maestra Pretty Pink continues to impress through the release of her bright summer soundtrack titled ‘CHANGE’ via her very own label, Wanderlust. Showcasing her Nu Disco sounds through singles such as Enough, Panorama and Repeat, Pretty Pink now continues her solo career efforts with her new single, ‘CHANGE’ which is set to be unrivaled. This rhythmic single quickly follows the success of ‘TRICK’, her most recent single released in February.

Pretty Pink began her artistic journey in the deep house clubs of Harz, Germany, where she showcased a unique selection of hypnotic house music that branded her as the artist she is today.

Red Rocks, Colorado. EDC, Vegas. Steel Yard, Finsbury Park. Anjuna beach, California. Some of the locations that in the last months have chanted the words of ‘Will We Remain?’ with vigor. Taken from his iTunes #1 dance album ‘Scars’, Ilan Bluestone reunites with longtime partner in crime Maor Levi and London based songwriter El Waves for a tumultuous tale of love on the brink.

Providing a thunderous moment on the dance floor and his debut artist album, Ilan and Maor’s heavy rolling bassline has a bruising vintage feel; EL Waves vocal cutting through the swathes of melody.

Indie-folk outfit Jared & The Mill have channeled the energy-charged emotion they funnel throughout everything they touch into their new video for “Break in the Ether.”

The song reinforces Billboard‘s notion that “Jared & The Mill often sing songs with messages of authenticity, open-mindedness, and acknowledgement of others’ opinions, similar to this song, which acts as an ode to their fans of living up to their capabilities and being who they imagine themselves to be.” Comprised of five best friends, bonded together by spending (possibly too much) time on the road, there is something unabashedly and unapologetically straightforward about how the collective approaches their life in music. The band has built their career championing open-mindedness and celebrating other people’s differences.

 

Dillon Francis released the album’s latest single, “Never Let You Go” (feat. De La Ghetto). Sparking his interest in creating a Spanish language album, Francis began working on the track just hours after meeting artists De La Ghetto and El Guincho at the 2016 Latin GRAMMY® Awards. Francis today also shared an accompanying music video for the track, directed by Austin Peters.

 

Cape Cub started life as the bedroom solo project of award-winning UK based songwriter and producer Chad Male. Now joined by four bandmates, Cape Cub release their first full band single “Moonglow.”

The rest of 2018 and beyond is set to be an exciting time for this new band from the UK. From humble beginnings as a bedroom project to the daytime dreams of arena shows, Cape Cub is a band with its wave almost set to break.
