Found Pop

She's growing pretty quickly, but I just want to bring Carishma to your attention. She's an American artist, and her latest single is called Glow in the Dark. Its a really sweet song - not super dancy, but not chill and relaxed either. I would definitely put it in Easy Listening, because it is so pleasant to listen to. Her debut album is set for this summer, and if Glow in the Dark and Keep Hangin On are any sign, it should be pretty varied and interesting.

I'm pretty sure that in making Our Song Comes On, Kristina Maria had a true artist's dream fulfilled - she got a curious listener singing along immediately. While not at a party bus level, I can see this playing loudly in car speakers. It's one of those songs that you sing with your friends when it plays, and I'll be testing that to see how it goes with my friends.

I already featured her a while ago, but i just listened to Starshell's song Bad News. I like it way better than SuperLuva, and I think it shows that she has more potential than the stuff she's been making.

Found Pop

I don't think I should be blamed for not being super familiar with H.E.A.T. I live in the U.S. and don't usually follow rock bands. They are really good though, so I am upset that I didn't know about them. They've been around for a while, and they released their third album in March. I have been looking for another band/artist with male vocals, and I found one! They aren't available in the U.S. (why does this always happen to me?) but hey, Youtube is universal. Most of the time. Living on the Run is the only song of theirs on Youtube I've found that isn't live, but it is a really good example of what they do.

I'm slightly in love with Tanner Patrick. Not only is he cute, but he has a great voice, and that perfect balance of pop. The thing is, with guys singing, either they seem super poppy, like One Direction or JLS, or they're more melancholy, like Christopher. But Tanner Patrick hit that sweet spot in both his songs Ours featuring Taylor Swift and in Merry Go Round. I'm not sure about anything new coming up, but hey, it would make me happy.

And hey, so excited! Carly Rae Jepsen is high up on all the charts, and I posted about her and her song long before getting signed on with Justin Bieber. The post is here.
