Undiscovered is a weekly playlist sharing our pick of the best new music from the world's most exciting emerging musicians. You heard it here first.
“End Me” by RADA
Finding the perfect intersection between hyper pop balladry and thumping techno, “End Me” welcomes a new sound from RADA, who’s had a muted 2023 until now. The track leaves listeners in a state of blissful content.
“The Only One” by Le Boom, AMY MC
Irish dance trio Le Boom are on an unstoppable ascendancy. “The Only One” marks another dance floor-ready release from the artists, capitalising on their status as a must-see festival act this summer.
“Floating Up” by ESSIRAY
“Floating Up” does exactly what it says on the tin. A UKG refrain and dainty melody puts your head in the clouds, serenaded by ESSIRAY’s effortless tones.
“Lonely” by vi0let
An internal analysis of vi0let’s troubles and woes, “Lonely” addresses the singer’s monophobia through a delicate love story. Stripped back and muted, the instrumentation gives space for the songwriter to do what she does best.
“Futbol” by Rahill
An artist of many disciplines, Rahill is a portraiture, DJ and songwriter from New York. Her frequent genre-spanning musical meanderings have won support in America’s contemporary underground scene and “Futbol” might be her most whimsical to date.
“Clear My Mind” by Sensu
Engineering a genre-defying electronic discography, Sensu’s latest single showcases her propensity for deranged jungle rhythms. Chopped vocal samples and revved up basslines are all the rave on “Clear My Mind”.
“Blackbone” by Blusher
Finding strength through heartbreak, “Blackbone” is an energetic love song that empowers the value of friendship. Over glistening electro pop, the Melbourne three piece harmonise euphorically, lacing the instrumental with their inherent camaraderie.
“Roster” by OhEm
Today marks the release of rising pop icon OhEm's debut, self-produced EP “Roster”. The title track is our pick of the lot, which she pins as the genesis of the project. "Writing this song made me realise I had been focusing on making straight-up pop top lines and I felt like I was missing the R&B elements that I had been really inspired by when I started writing as OhEm,” she says. It's one for feeling your best self getting ready to go out this long weekend.
“10months” by Tora-i
Distilling her unique experiences and feelings into relatable music, Tora-i's latest track, “10months”, is both beautiful and soul-bearing. The track, she says, is about: "Grasping onto the silver linings but ultimately knowing when enough is enough.”
