We can’t stop listening to Terry Ohms new single “Ghost”, it’s a super catchy song with a lot of heart. The song is memorable with interesting and intriguing lyrics and a fun rhythm. His sound is similar to artists like Jackson Browne or The Rolling Stones but Ohms finds a way to make it his own with a soulful chorus and harmonic melodies. I think this artist would be appreciated by fans old and young as it has classic rock sound mixed with somewhat indie rock instrumentation. We will definitely have our eyes (and ears) out for Terry’s next release.
David Cobo has relased a new single called “No One”, the song has really great potential. His style is similar to early Eminem or D12, he has a great way to convey his feelings yet still keeps a “masculine” tone to his sound. The beat is powerful and matches quite well with his flow, but it doesn’t overpower the vocals. The lyrics are heartfelt and seem to describe the struggle that David has gone through to make it in this life. I would recommend this track to anyone that is into classic sounding hip hop but that’s not to say his sound isn’t uniquely his own.
Saint Pierre hailing the Brox has truly caught out eye here at NeuFutur with his new single “Acid”. Saint Pierre’s sounds are like a mixture between Migo’s and Tyga, the song has a heavy trap beat and his flow is similar to classic “triplet” rap flow style. Acid is quite catchy with booming bass and the vocals are relatable to the Atlanta style, personally I think he’s found a way to blend both Southern hip-hop with the dirty sounds of New York. I think fans of current hip-hop would enjoy Saint Pierre’s music because it has the potential to rap along with or just vibe out in the club.

Sleeping Babys are a five piece indie rock group hailing from Sidney, Australia. Their track “Resistor” has really caught our attention here at NeuFutur. The track features a powerful social message that reminds listeners that by hurting others “you only hurt yourself”. The lyrics ask the listeners to “resist” the idea that you can gain something by saying hateful things to others. I think this is personally one of the most touching subjects I’ve heard in popular music recently.
The song starts with a slow but powerful guitar lead in building up to Stacie beginning the song. After a few seconds the rest of the band join in to begin a impressive combination of harmony and nuanced arrangements. Her voice is deep and compelling voice, reminding you of a young Stevie Nicks or Tori Amos. She has great range going from quietly harmonizing to soaring on the track, providing a considerable amount of dimension and animation to her lyrics. You can hear in her voice the pain and dedication she has to the music.
Sleeping Babys have sort of an indie rock meets pop, with a little splash of possibly country sound. The instrumentation is spot on with the strings providing the mood for the song while hard hitting drums bring forth a dramatic force to really polish the song. The track is well composed with no lulls or dull spots. I could see fans of artists such as Sheryl Crow or Lana Del Rey enjoying the powerful weighty vocals and lyrics. While fans of groups like Coldplay and U2 would be brought to the group with the arrangement of instruments.
I hope that we will hear more from Sleeping Babys soon, their strong message resounds saying “What if everything you said and everything you did mattered”?
Jackson Legg is an artist that has caught our attention with the song “OverEasy (She’s Always)”. The single is a hard rocking tune with heartfelt lyrics, the sound is similar to early U2, splashed with a harder slightly faster sound. Jackson’s voice is perfectly matched with his instrumentation allowing the song to flow smoothly but still grab your attention. The production is solid with no mismatched sounding areas to the song, it flows organically and keeps you on your toes. I think this song would be popular with the bar scene becoming a sing along hit for listeners young and old.
Sonny Hunter has released an amazing new Christian rock song called “Times in Life”. It’s a hard rock song that has a message. The song kinda reminds one of the hard Christian rock released in the late 90’s, similar sounding to Creed’s early album “My Own Prison” but with a modern twist. The song is well composed, the instrumentation and vocals line up nicely to make a well rounded recording. Sonny’s music is bright and fun, I think that Sonny Hunter will be most successful with the music festival scene and with older adults.
Will Jay’s new single “leading Man’ is great new pop song for the summer. It’s an up beat and fun single, the lyrics are playful but ask the question “why can’t he get a change”. The beat is produced masterfully, it easy going pop song that enhances Will’s lyrics. The arrangement make sure that each part of the song is equally presented. I think that fans of Ed Shreean or Micheal Buble would enjoy Will Jay’s music. The video is alls really cute, it has a real fun sunny vibe, be sure to check it out!
The SLVR Tongues new single “S-Class” has been one of the best songs I’ve came across this year. The vocalists are accompanied but a unique mixture of Country and Electric music, honestly they are almost like a Country version of the Chainsmokers. The song is produced well, the music is funk and fun and the arrangement is fantastic, nothing over powers each other. It’s really refreshing to hear that Country music is expanding it’s wings and branching out. I would bet that the SLVR tongues really have the talent to branch out into popular music.
