Enjoy new music from multiple platinum-selling group Snakehips, Oslo-raised artist Sei Selina, and Canadian singer-songwriter Donovan Woods.
Snakehips – Couple Bandz EP (Never Worry)
Multiple platinum-selling group Snakehips returns with a two-part EP, Couple Bandz EP. The electronic music duo are no strangers to commanding the studio and stage, having remixed for greats like Banks, The Weeknd, and Wild Belle. The first powerhouse cut on the EP, Couple Bandz with Promnite (Katy Perry, Nicki Minaj, Quavo, Lil Yachty), blends disco, urban, and house influences. The second track, “On My Body” with Tony Romera (Calvin Harris, Diplo, Petit Miscuit, MØ) is just as addictive. Hard-hitting bass lines and smooth vocals make for a listening experience that audiences won’t forget anytime soon. Make sure to listen to Couple Bandz EP out everywhere now.
Sei Selina – Him or Her (GR:OW Records)
Oslo-raised artist Sei Selina has no shortage of musical influences, drawing on pop icons like Michael Jackson and Prince, as well as soul singers like Nina Simone and Aretha Franklin. It is no surprise that Selina’s music confidently fuses the aforementioned genres, creating a kind of art that is completely her own. Sei’s debut EP, Him or Her, is equal parts ethereal and soulful, showcasing the musical virtuosity reminiscent of Sei Selina’s inspirations. Multi-platinum producer Magnus Skylstad worked in collaboration with Selina to build the album from the ground up. Selina shares, “the way I write is very direct, and a bit brutal,” perfectly summarizing how her songwriting cuts straight to the bone. “Only When You’re Asleep” is otherwordly, while “I Adore” puts Selina’s punchy penmanship on full display. Listeners won’t be able to get enough of her debut.
Donovan Woods – Big Hurt Boy (Meant Well)
Acclaimed Canadian singer-songwriter Donovan Woods returns with Big Hurt Boy, a follow-up to his 2020 body of work, Without People. Of the upcoming tracks, the Juno Award winner shares, “these are smaller, less polished songs than the ones I’ve been putting out recently.” This musical vulnerability imbues the EP with a sense of raw talent. From the subtle melodies of “No Time Soon” to the R&B-infused topline of “Leave When You Go,” the tracks are chock-full of inventiveness and musical flair. A welcome reunion with Katie Pruitt on “A Picture of Us Smiling at a Party Five Years Ago” and tearjerker “I Hope You Change Your Mind” have the undeniable ability to keep listeners engaged throughout.
