current track obsession ๐ŸŽง vol. xxxiii

This past Labor Day Weekend was filled with a whole lot of travel for me, which made me so grateful for my headphones and music once again.

.

You will sincerely never find me in an airport without a pair of headphones over my ears and a playlist streaming through my phone. It's actually a good thing that Steven has started to travel with me because I blare my music so loud that I used to find myself often missing important airline messages. ๐Ÿ˜‚ But truthfully, it's the only way I stay calm and collected during one of the experiences I find most stressful, flying.

.

And here are the 6, yes 6!, tracks that had me bopping and playing drums on my carry-on while I was sitting in delay after delay (true story...it was no fun.)

.

1. You Could Be The One - Niko Rubio


* Off of her debut EP, "Wish You Were Here," Niko Rubio brings a brand new sound to life with "You Could Be The One." I find myself gravitating towards this song because I'm enthralled by the laid-back vocals mixed with some really interesting layers of chill instruments, specifically the guitar and its repeating melodic lines. Since this is just the beginning for Niko, I know we are going to see some really big things from her in the future.

2. The Marilyn - GiGi Grombacher



* Moving away from the soft vibes of number 1, "The Marilyn" is this week's party track! Honestly, I can't get enough of GiGi's strong beat featured in this melody. Throw in her great voice and some fun note runs, we've got the makings of a hit on our hands. And, get this, "The Marilyn" is her debut song!! Get on the fan train early because it's only going to take off from here. Once you fall in love with this track, check out GiGi's other two releases!

"Do It For Love" was featured on last month's playlist, and it's pretty amazing!

3. Deserve You - Avry

(A Tiny Explicit)


* Giving you another relaxing track on this week's Current Track Obsession, which is truly something we can all use, "Deserve You" by new artist Avry is a short tune with a whole lot of heart. From the relatable lyrics...to Avry's smoky vocal tone...to the smooth electronic overtones- this melody will have you watching the sunset in a fall, hazy state of mind. If you're looking for a track to unwind to, look no further than "Deserve You."

4. Magazines - Glassio



* It always makes me so happy when I can introduce you to an artist that I've been "Obsessing" over for YEARS and Glassio is a prime example. I've been a fan since 2015, with their debut single "Try Much Harder" so when I heard this upbeat, cute, new track from them that showcased the dance/electronic sound only he knows how to do best, I knew I had to put it on Current Track Obsession! "Magazines" is a great example of the reasons I've been following for so long! After you find yourself jamming along to this beat check out a few of my other favorite melodies from Glassio: "If I Was Your Boy," "Search & Destroy," "Back For More," and "One of Those Days."

5. 123 - Izabel

(A Tiny Explicit)



* This week's best beat goes to "123" by Izabel. And after taking a moment to take a closer look at this artist and her work, she's more than a great beat. The more time I spent listening to Izabel's singles, the more I fell in love with the dreamscape tone and the amount of thought that goes into her well-crafted lyrics, both featured in "123" and all of her releases. You know each song means something to Izabel, and yet you find yourself enjoying it as if it means something just as meaningful to you. So check out her whole discovery after listening to "123."

6. cool enough - almost monday

(โœจFAVE ARTIST ALERTโœจ)


* Bonus Track! And fave artist! This band doesn't get nearly enough credit for their catchy tunes, fun lyrics, upbeat tracks, and overall "cool" vibe. I've been closely following almost monday since they made their way to the scene in 2020 with their debut release "parking lot view" which was featured on January's monthly CTO playlist, also the VERY FIRST CTO playlist! And since then, they have not released a track I have not immediately drooled all over. "cool enough" was the right track at the right time to make its way onto CTO this week, but after you listen, Imma need you to go check out this band's other smashes such as: "broken people," "hailey beebs," "this is growing up," and "til the end of time."

.

As September progresses, remember, so does my Fall ๐Ÿ Spice ๐Ÿ Fusion - Sep. '21 Playlist! You can find these 6 tracks and so much more where they came from. Personally, I'm LOVING the way this true fusion is shaping up, and we still have 20 days left of more melodies to get added! So make sure when you're listening to these tracks on Spotify you give my profile a follow and my playlists a like, keeping you up to date the moment new music is added! Let's build your fall playlist together!

.

Love,
