‘Submission Showcase’ is a weekly column where we go through songs submitted to us and showcase the best ones. If you’d like to submit music to us, find out how to here.
Liza Ann – Take It Back
Okay! I like these non-rap submissions. This is some fire! Nashville-based songwriter and self-proclaimed “future host of SNL” Liza Anne‘s new single ‘Take It Back’ is so hard to describe, so I’ll try my best. This track is like electronic-folk-that-could-also-be-used-on-an-episode-of-NCIS-LA. That’s not an insult either. I love that show. It’s so good! It’s deep and emotional and cool sounding too, so, listen to it. Please.
Hadji & The Malakas – Harbor Lights
Now, I’m pretty sure that I can never get bored of Hadji’s music. It’s so unique! The 19 year-old rapper from Queens returns to another Submission with his new single ‘Harbor Lights’, which features his collective, The Malakas, too! To elaborate, Jay Romney produced the track, while also playing guitar and helping out on the hook, and Damzel (how cool of a name is that?!) features on the second verse. Anyway, enjoy this guitaR’n’B track, because, well, I did and that means you should too.
Eli Na – Jasmine
Okay, this is really, REALLY good. Ever heard of Dear Euphoria? No? Me neither. Now pay attention. They have lots of scrobbles on Last.fm. Like in the hundreds of thousand type of a lot. Anyway. Eli Na is the solo project of Elina Johansson, the really really hot girl on the Last.fm page. And it’s really good. ‘Jasmine’ is the single off her EP Nature Is My Mother Now, which is due out on April 30th. It’s like electronic-folk that sounds so cool! And she’s Swedish! Sweden is cool! Now take a listen already!
