This high energy track is super infectious and is all the motivation you’ll need to do just about anything.

Travis Bretzer — “Promises”
There is a sweet simplicity to this song that I love – and the fact that it will be included on an album called “Waxing Romantic” pretty much tells you everything you need to know. It’s got a breezy 70’s vibe as he ruminates on his relationship.
It will be on the debut full length from Canadian artist Travis Bretzer (out February …

Coves

Marian Hill – “Got It”
Marian Hill is actually a duo!
A Philadelphia electronic pop duo Marian Hill comprised of Jeremy Lloyd (production/songwriting) and Samantha Gongol (vocals/songwriting).
DJ Aaron Byrd is a big fan of this band, who definitely have some 90’s vibes ala En Vogue, Mary J Blige and Aaliyah with that hip hop “boom bap”, as he says.

Coves – “Fall Out of Love”
I don’t know …
