Tame Impala debuted their second single 'Borderline' at Saturday Night Live recently and it brings back memories of their early creations that had me hooked onto.

Parekh & Singh received instant recognition from their  first single 'I love you baby, I love you doll' and there has been no looking back ever since. In case you missed this song when it first released in January, the indie-pop duo now has a music video accompanying it. It's one of those dreamy, mellow songs you can listen to, on a loop.

'DYSFUNCTIONAL' comes after Kaytranada's 2018 EP NOTHIN LIKE U/CHANCES and a single 'Well I Bet Ya'. VanJess brings a sensual vibe to the song despite expressing their frustration with an errant lover. The producer's liking for house music is evident. 'DYSFUNCTIONAL' is a pure dance hit without empty, meaningless lyrics.  In a conversation with Apple Music's Beats 1'a Zane Lowe, Kaytranada had also hinted that there is a new album in the works.

'Late Night Feelings' is one of the many 'sad bangers' Mark Ronson has created for his forthcoming album of the same name. The smooth, disco-tinged collaboration with Swedish singer-songwriter Lykke Li, certainly does evoke the sorrow of nursing a broken heart.

The Grammy-winning musician and multi-instrumentalist released 'Make Me Cry' along with a kitschy music video. Collier's voice is soothing, he sounds like he is in no hurry to reach the end of the song, just like the leisurely flow of water in a stream. According to Genius, he had explained that the song was about "the passages that water can make, both metaphorically and physically."

For people not acquainted with K-Pop, BTS should be the starting point. The boy band, which CNN believes have a bigger following than the Beatles, has a new album, Map of the Soul: Persona, out and Halsey's on it! 'Boy With Luv' is such a great pick-me-up that you won't mind the auto-tuned vocals that have increasingly become commonplace.
