Hey hey lovelies!
I haven’t done a ‘new music’ post for ages so I thought it was time for an update – here’s my top 10! I’ve tried to include a wide variation from acoustic to dance tracks. I’ll only share with you things with less than 250k views on Youtube (most have less than 50k) to make sure it’s truly fresh and undiscovered. Would love your thoughts, and tip offs on anything else you’ve found that you love!
