Abra… Sofi… Sigalia… It’s Songs For The Week!

***

AWOPBAMBOOM Vol. 66: Music 4 Music People

***

From Abra to Elohim, here’s what’s orbiting our musical universe this week.

***

Troye Sivan, “Wild”

Following the devastating attacks in Orlando, FL, Sivan urged everyone to continue being “Loud and Proud.” This vid follows suit, featuring a happy Sivan and his childhood boyfriend.

***

Abra, “Fruit”

Awful Records latest signee isn’t what you might expect – there’s a smooth elegance to this gal’s tunes.

***

Sofi De La Torre, “Faster”

Her impeccable delivery of English lyrics might lead one to think De La Torre is of English descent. That’s not the case; De La Torre is a Spaniard, hailing from the Canary Islands.

***

Sigalia ft. Imani & DJ Fresh, “Say You Do”

“If you like piña coladas…” listen to this song!

***

Elohim, “Sensations”

We’d be hard-pressed to find anyone familiar with this musician, but you should be! Elohim performs from behind a mask; nobody knows her true identity. For now, an unveiling of her music will have to suffice.

***

Kacy Hill, “Arm’s Length”

An ex-dancer for Kanye West’s Yeezus Tour, Hill has since employed a few back-up dancers of her own while sharing music with fans across the UK and Ireland.

 

***

Conrad Sewell, “Hold Me Up”

Breakout Alert!

Once an accompanying vocalist on Kygo’s hit-track, “Firestone,” Sewell has since earned his claim to fame winning song of the year honors in his home country of Australia.
