A Deli Premiere: "Rollercoaster" by JUICYPEAR

There is hardly a better way to prepare for the weekend than by letting go of the extra cargo and fusing into the groove of “ Rollercoaster,” a sweet indie-pop single by LA’s stylish duo JUICYPEAR. The glossy new track uses its sexy rhythm (fat bass) and melting electric guitar chords to usher one dance-pop hook after the other, the voice of Jasmine Mayeda guiding the euphoria of the moment. Together with her husband Jacob, Jasmine Mayeda rides the beat past its sharp sonic curves and composes a beautiful song that moves from dream-glitch bridges to a funk-futuristic rock finale that may leave your hair a mess. “Rollercoaster” is the sophomore single from JUICYPEAR, who reflects on the new single as follows: “Some seasons of life can feel like you’re riding an emotional rollercoaster. We thought it would be cool to bring the viewer into some of those life moments, while weaving in and out of vintage TVs, to show even our relationship has its ups and downs.” Nothing in the world is perfect, but in the pursuit of that perfection, a story weaves itself, that with its imperfections, becomes something better, more precious by far. Hang in there, stream our premiere of “Rollercoaster,” and enjoy the ride. - René Cobar

   

Ella Isaacson defines her brand of pop in new single "Hard Lessons"

Ella Isaacson has a sleek fury to her in a new single titled “Hard Lessons” that speaks of strength through atmospheric choruses and a very modern beat propelled by a heartbeat bass guitar. “Hard Lessons” is reflective, but with an upbeat attitude that immerses the listener and can even be cathartic for those with something bottled up that needs release. Isaacson allows her brand of pop to take shape: melancholic and yet triumphant, “Hard Lessons” is a single representative of the themes of her music. The music video for the song expands those themes with a stormy and defiant look at the artist, holding her own and declaring the lessons learned. With polished production and a message that encourages growth, this single is a solid choice for a reminder that you are worth it. - René Cobar
