Each week I get sent tons of music to review and I always keep an open mind, especially with new artists. I have to say I was introduced to so many great new or indie artists this week that they beat out most of the top 40 artists for me.
Dante Palminteri’s “I Don’t Even Know You” and Bridesmen’s “The Times” are incredibly catchy and addictive that I want to immerse myself into the rest of their body of work.
Sam Smith’s new song “To Die For” came out Friday and he released it with a message: “This is for all the lonely hearts out there on another Valentine’s Day xx.”
“Desert Heat” by Michigan Rattlers is a nice little rock & roll throwback that we’d love to hear more of.
See our full playlist below featuring Kim Petras, Christian Paul, and Lowen along with some standout song lyrics from the list! Follow me on Spotify to listen to all of the StarShine Magazine playlists and podcast!
