Melodic Music Monday: July 8


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:

Caleb Hearn, “Last Breath” – The latest release from the album, “Last Breath” is a poetic piano ballad that beautifully details the love Caleb has for his fiancée. He openly summarizes their journey together, touching on moments that “made loving you easy” and major milestones they shared.

– Christine Sloman


Still Woozy, “Again” – Opening with “Again”, we are introduced to the darker sides of Still Woozy’s past relationships. The track focuses on a repeated cycle of denial and heartbreak, using heavy bass and synths to underscore the tougher, complex feelings that come with this pain. … Loveseat is an ode to the people he loves most in life. He honors his friends and family by creating meaningful songs that share how their impact has changed him as a person. Loveseat inspires listeners to reflect on what matters most to them and to show appreciation for the people or things that bring them joy.

– Emma Celenza


The Knocks and Dolores Forever, “LOVER” – Drawing inspiration from house, disco, hip-hop, indie, and pop, “LOVER” is an upbeat summer hit that is sure to attract listeners who are fans of either band, or who are discovering the two groups for the first time. The track is a beautiful blend of both bands’ sounds, and is one that you will not want to miss. 

– Ashley Robinson


Real Friends, “Waiting Room” – Dealing with deeply personal subject matter, “Waiting Room” addresses the pain of loss and will resonate with listeners who have ever gone through something like this. This song has been perfectly executed from start to finish. The vulnerable lyrics combined with the raw and energetic vocal and instrumental styles will capture listeners’ hearts, especially if they’ve lost a loved one. With “Waiting Room”, Real Friends has created a relatable track that fans can turn to whenever they want to feel seen and understood, regardless of what they’re going through.

– Brittany Muldoon


Violet Sands and derek muro, “are you still watching?” – The single glows like a television screen cutting through the darkness with feverish beats, ear-catching electronics, and haunting vocals that lure you deeper into the track. The infectious rhythm gains momentum as the percussion unfolds, leaving you breathless at the finish line. “are you still watching?” examines the hypothetical scenarios that might unfold amidst the ever-evolving presence of tech and brings the narrative to life through vibrant sonic landscapes.

– Lucy Hendricks
