Just turn it up and turn it on: Press Play, the June edition is here!
In case you’ve been out of the loop, Press Play is my new playlist that I’ll be launching every month – aka your opportunity to hear all of the songs I’m currently buzzin’ about in one handy and convenient place.
We’re just a few days into June and things are heating up already (quite literally here in NYC — finally!), which means it’s time to talk about some of the very good pop releases of June 2019 so far.
First, disco-pop legend Roisin Murphy is back with a thrilling 8-minute long House escape. Also back, trio MUNA with the reassuring “Number One Fan”, which is about “recognising the negative voices in your head and learning to speak back to them.”
On the rising pop diva front, we’ve got a new gems from Kim Petras, Mabel, Sabrina Carpenter, Kiiara and Gia Woods. And as for the boys… they came through too. We got VINCINT bringing us shades of Whitney, Jared Gelman giving us some PCD realness, my bb’s nicopop and Kyan Palmer serving up a hot summer slice, and lastly, the Jonas Brothers with my fave option for single #3 from their new album Happiness Begins, “Only Human.”
Enjoy all of these songs mentioned (and more!) by subscribing to the June 2019 Press Play playlist on Spotify or Apple Music. (Missed April and May? They’re right here.) As always, I will keep updating throughout the month with even more bangers, bops and everything in between.
