La Bien Querida is the alter ego of Spanish songstress Ana Fernández-Villaverde, who has already released four albums via Madrid-based indie pop label Elefant Records. New tune “7 Días Juntos” is taken off her fifth studio album Fuego, released in October 2017, and it features guest vocals by Joan Miquel Oliver, singing lyrics translated from his 2009 single “Dins Un Avió De Paper”.
Talking about her new album, Ana explains: “This album talks about the desire that defends life, pleasure, self-fulfillment, freedom. The process of living through our desires, which are not dark or confusing but light and clear”.

Panama is the moniker of Sydney-based electronic pop producer Jarrah McCleary. His most recent EP, Hope For Something, is another signature Panama release, with songs like “Hope For Something” and “The Highs” containing huge anthemic choruses and powerfully poetic lyrics that draw from his rich personal experience.
As a singer, songwriter, producer and instrumentalist, Jarrah McCleary has the rare ability to blend raw emotional songwriting and lush synth-heavy production in his music. It’s a skill that allows him to paint every element in his songs, from the moment he first sits down at the piano to the final touches in the studio.
Panama’s previous EPs and singles (“Jungle”, “Stay Forever”) have amassed millions of streams between Spotify and SoundCloud and received significant airplay on Triple J BBC Radio 1.

Los Angeles based French-American duo Freedom Fry are sharing more dancey tunes from their recently released EP, Strange Attraction. This new release veers away from the alt-folk of their previous works to venture into indie-pop, full of glowing synth lines, funky guitars and catchy vocals.
On “Party Down”, the mood is festive and you will have a hard time not tapping your feet (or even singing along). Marie Seyrat and Bruce Driscoll’s perfectly complementary vocal interplay adds to the overall very polished production. This track is definitely a well-crafted pop song that’s hard to get enough of, and luckily there’s more where this came from with Strange Attraction‘s title track.

Belgian indie electronic duo Soldout is back with a refreshingly eclectic new record, Forever, released last March via Flatcat Recordings. Their 5th studio album includes collaborations with artists like Goose, Maya Postepski (Austra), Victor LeMasne (Housse de Racket), it is mixed by Marta Salogni (FKA Twigs, Dave Gahan, MIA, Frank Ocean), and Bart Demey (The Magician, Hercules and Love Affair).
Their music is a collision between the cold and abrupt universe of electro and the softness of pop melodies. With a resolute contemporary vibe, they bring together the sounds of the 80’s and give them a new twist.
