"Anymore" by alternative rock singer-songwriter Ziggy 2000 comes as a lead single for her upcoming second EP, Needles, that will be releasing in June 2024. It is her first new release in a couple years. The guitar-laden track recounts feeling done with a person and realizing how both of you are meant for something better than what you thought was love. As she laces the track with nostalgic melodies and guitar patterns, it felt reminiscent of 90s icons like Alanis Morissette and The Cranberries, and one of my current favorite artists, Suki Waterhouse. Even if you're not reeling from a brea ..read more

Review: "Right This Time" - Seth Gauton
Pop Passion Blog
by Alexa Leung
5h ago
Seth Gauton’s highly anticipated debut solo release “Right This Time” is an exploration into the moment you realize you’re losing your perspective in an argument, but remain too stubborn to apologize. It’s something we’ve all experienced– our confidence shaking, but wanting to nonetheless sting with conviction in a heated fight. We dig our heels into the ground and attempt to regain our stance, but know that we’re wrong and keep shouting anyways. The track details the cycle of fighting and forgiveness until forgiveness can no longer be given, and the sudden shock of comprehending that thing ..read more

“Wisdom” by RAGS AND RICHES is a powerful testament to the duo’s growing mastery of their art form.

The song shines as an anthem of hope that touches the essence of the human condition, especially following the tumultuous events of the past few years.

Review: "twenty five" - Kelley Cole
Pop Passion Blog
by Megan Cao
1d ago
"twenty five" by Kelley Cole is a poignant, strikingly sincere single that embodies the tumultuous era of diving headfirst into true adulthood. Born out of the almost ritualistic experience of a first encounter with the IRS, the track is a vivid narrative spun from the threads of self-discovery, financial awakening, and the bitter taste of grown-up responsibilities. The moment Kelley Cole watched her bank account dwindle post-tax payment, her instinct was not to retreat but to translate the universal punch-in-the-gut feeling into music. This creative birth, on the floor with nothing but a g ..read more

Pop sensation maryjo has just released her third single of 2024 titled “Should Be Us!” This song delves into seeing an ex with someone else and all the emotions that come along with it. It’s an exploration into the longing of being with someone in your past, despite whatever happened in the relationship. maryjo starts the song off by describing how she usually is when a relationship ends: she cuts ties and never looks back. But now, since she sees her ex with someone else, she wasn’t expecting it and she thinks “[she] had a heart attack.” She kicks off the chorus by saying “that should be ..read more

Review: "Healing" - Joe Bygraves
Pop Passion Blog
by Chantal Charles
2d ago
In Joe Bygraves' latest release, “Healing,” he has given us a gut-wrenching ballad about trying to move on from a person you loved so deeply. The song makes it clear how difficult and slow the process can be, and tiny steps have to be taken. Bygraves paints the sorrow of heartbreak in a very clear way and how moving on is easier said than done. There are a lot of raw emotions here about how haunted one can be by a past relationship and how this only slows down the healing process. The ballad itself is quite beautiful, Bygraves’ voice can really fill a room and be made to sing a song of thi ..read more

This song, “London” by Emily James, is a beautiful, escapist ballad all about those feelings you have after a heartbreak where you want to leave and start a new life. With poetic, wistful lyrics, James weaves together a romanticization of leaving everything behind and moving to a new country, where everyone is new and everything you experience is fresh. Maybe you’ll fall in love with someone else, or maybe you’ll just find things to distract you - but you’re hoping to find something that makes you feel better. Slipping between feelings of sadness - with lyrics like “I’ll sipping on champa ..read more

Review: "I Hope It Kills You" - Laila
Pop Passion Blog
by Keiunna Thompson

Laila gives us this sweet angelic face as the cover art, but it's for a song with the sour title of "I Hope It Kills You”. She's got us intrigued and we’re anxious to hear what she has to say and why she would have that sentiment towards someone. As the opening line of the song literally begins with “God damn”, one can imagine that the treachery that is to be discussed has to be of epic proportions. In a description for the song, Laila disclosed "I Hope It Kills You: your lover leaves you for your best friend. Ouch. You take the high road but still pray that karma ..read more
