L.A.’s Taylor Deblock is confident and real smooth in his new single “Necesitas,” which like syrup drips sweet, and is warm enough thanks to its Latin rhythm. The pop-RNB concoction takes control of the listener’s fantasy-inducing brain sectors and demands movement with hooks and choruses that resonate throughout the body. The summer may be gone, but Deblock is not about to let go of the heat. This emergent L.A. artist is blending modern music trends with classic rhythm and blues, seductive, and always creative in his approach. Listen to the new track below for a hot message ready and delivered. – René Cobar

East of June is paying tribute to adventure with a new single titled “Little Bird” that describes the to-be journey of a young girl searching for her voice, her awaiting identity. Tucked in the rich lead vocal melody of Emily Rath is a story of discovery that is relatable. The warm groove from the bass of Incubus founding member Dirk Lance leads the rhythm that helps also tell the story, with Kyle Mortensen providing the acoustics, it is a win. The group shot the music video for the song on Long Canyon Trail in beautiful Simi Valley, adding just the kind of tranquil mood that the song inspires. Such reflections come from the track’s moment of birth (the first week of quarantine), and so loaded with hope, “Little Bird” merges the past and the future and infuses hope and respect for both; stream “Little Bird” for a story familiar. – René Cobar

The track is accompanied by a video co-directed by Muse, Imaginat, Sensei Shutter and Oluwaseyi Adeleke the features the two emcees and a variety of cars. When asked Muse had this to say about the video; "My vision for the video was to create a mostly performance based visual that highlighted my life-long love for cars. I’ve always wanted to have a music video with a bunch of nice cars in it, not to look flashy, but because I adore the craftsmanship and detail of luxury vehicles".
