emilytreadgold #1, New 9 Tracks

It's been a long time coming, we're now in the era of Kid Krow. Conan Gray's debut album that landed right on the crazy week of self-isolation. He told Instagram, "This is everything i’ve ever wanted to say but didn’t. every secret and insane thought i’ve kept for my closest friends." 

This is definitely going to be Conan's year, we can feel it.

Polartropica's new album Dreams Come True is a wild fantasy land of bunnies and glitter, but that's not to say she glosses over everything, she just wants to brighten your day with perfect earwormy choruses and shimmering melodies. Also, she has a song about watching Netflix with your cat which is my whole life right now.

She told her Instagram friends, "It will make you feel like you are relaxing next to a sparkling blue pool eating your favorite snacks and hanging out with your favorite pet but also flying through a neon rainbow outer space at the SAME TIME."

We could all use a little positivity right now.

We have been digging each song HARLOE releases and this EP is just stunning. She shared a thoughtful message about it during these weird times.

She said, "During this quiet time of quarantining, there have been a couple things that came to mind. I’ve thought about how much we really do depend on each other physically, spiritually and emotionally. How we all play a role In each other’s lives, even without realizing it. Energies get passed on person to person, touch to another touch. It’s kind of surreal how fast that could happen. Anyways I hope this touches you in one way or another, I hope it makes you feel good."

Our sad queen is back for our feelings. She says, "I have also always craved deep emotional connection with women, and have been fortunate to have a powerfully tight-knit group of friends - many of whom are part of the LGBTQ+ community. When I was younger, I was so steadfast in my belief that I was straight - look, I'm with a man! I only ever date men! - I would argue. I didn't perceive myself as part of any spectrum. But as I got older, I started to realize that I had been lying to myself for a long time - that I was not as 'straight' as I had always claimed to be - and I was terrified of what that really meant. I carefully and cautiously started coming coming out as bisexual - first to my mom and my sister, then to my partner, and eventually to my brother and dad. After my partner and I broke up, I was devastated but I finally had complete freedom to be wholly and utterly myself." She adds: "In truth, this song isn't just for one person - it's for all the women I've loved thus far and for the women still searching, wondering..."

Chloe Lilac is seriously a force, her new song "Obvious" hits home for anyone who has been cheated on. She told MTV News the song is about  "being with someone that clearly doesn’t like you as much as you like them, being in denial about it, and then realizing you’re better than that bullshit."
