Melodic Music Monday: July 1


Every Monday, we bring you a playlist filled with new tracks the Melodic staff has been listening to on repeat. Hear some of our latest obsessions below:

The Kid LAROI, “GIRLS” The Kid LAROI has just released his new single “Girls”, a contender for the song of the summer. After creating a frenzy behind the song, the highly anticipated single is finally out now on all streaming platforms! The multi-platinum artist also dropped an accompanying music video, which features influencer icon Alix Earle. The music video references the late ’90s and early ’00s.

– Reagan Denning


Knox, “Treadmill” – Nashville-based pop artist Knox has just released his highly anticipated new single “Treadmill” along with an official music video. Knox has been teasing the song’s release for several weeks on his Instagram, building the anticipation for what’s just become the song of the summer. An upbeat pop anthem detailing what it’s like to pursue a crush, Knox has created a song that will land both on your summer and workout playlists.

– Brittany Muldoon


David Kushner, “Humankind”In “Humankind”, Kushner explores the human struggle between light and darkness. His profound lyrics are a standout feature of the song, as he creates powerful images in the listener’s imagination. He sings, “When I look for kindness now / Humankind just lets me down” and “I was looking for living water / You just let me drown”.

– Ashley Robinson


Alexander Stewart, “Life at First Sight” “Life at First Sight” focuses on a fulfilling partnership. Through steady guitar and smooth vocals, Alexander Stewart expresses his undying love for his partner and hopes for a positive future with them. Lyrics such as “When a stranger knows you more than you know yourself / And your missing piece was in somebody else / Yeah, I knew when I saw you / It was life at first sight” show how his life has changed for the better because of the caring relationship he has with his partner.

– Emma Celenza


Cameron Sage From, “Demon” – Toronto-born singer Cameron Sage From’s latest single “Demon” delivers a dark pop musing about powerful femininity that thuds and clangs with force. The song’s skittering guitar, bass and heavy percussion instrumentation hook listeners in quickly as the singer plays with vocal effects and screams that fill the remaining sonic space. The track’s instrumentation is clearly inspired by the likes of Billie Eilish and Maggie Lindemann, but is more spacious and restrained than the latter. Sage From sing-raps the songs verses quickly before stretching her syllables out like taffy in the chorus.
