Welcome back to a brand new list of new talent in On Repeat. The weekly list showcases the new and upcoming artists that you need to hear, and add to your playlist. This week features Yasmeen, Akemi Foxx with July 7, Emilia Tarrant and Tendai. Check out the artists below and more on our  Spotify and Apple Music playlists.

 

YASMEEN – STRANGER

NY-based indie pop artist Yasmeen is still finding out new things about herself in her new track “Stranger.” The track is driven by husky vocals and long, continuous chords on the piano. The artist finds herself transforming into a version of herself that she does not yet recognize.  “Stranger” is certainly a song anyone must add to their summer playlist. 

 

AKEMI FOXX FT. JULY 7 – I WANT IT

Akemi Fox has returned to the music scene with a new single titled I Want It that features the Manchester artist July 7. The track is a refreshing cut from Akemi, who trades vocals along with July 7 to produce a sun-soaked bop song for the summer. The track has a smooth and polished R&B sound and is about not wanting to leave the party. 

 

EMILIA TARRANT – SAME FOR ME

Emilia describes the way love should be in her new song—full of reciprocal moments of concern and kindness. It helps that this worthy sentiment comes with a soaring chorus, enlivened by her sparkling-but-believable vocal. The song is about supporting the people you love at their lowest moments, even by taking on the most basic errands and knowing that they would do the same for you. 

 

TENDAI – PRESSURE

Tendai released his new song “Pressure” through 0207 Def Jam and is considered his most R&B leaning track to date and was made alongside his producer, Blakey. It is another amazing example of the artists capability to move deftly between genres while working within a sonic framework that is certainly his own.  The song boasts vulnerability yet reflects the toughness of Londons inner city.
