“Kowalski” by MODERNS

MODERNS-GroupAlan Oakes (of Let Em Riot) returns with a new project, MODERNS, by collaborating with multi-instrumentalist Christopher Fudurich and vocalist Rosie Okumura. Based out of an Arts District studio, the trio stays true to Oakes’ retro pop form by blending striking synths, digi-beats, and stirring vocals. The result is arresting and most definitely danceable. Here’s the track “Kowalski” off their self-titled debut EP:

“Home” by AMAN

Processed with RookieThe fresh-face known as AMAN returns by leaking “Home.” Unlike his debut burner single, “Haunted,” this new track is an uptempo buildup driven by his signature soulful vox and spurts of edgy pop. By proving he can cover both ends of the spectrum, AMAN‘s eventual breakthrough is now inevitable.
