After all the glitz and glamor of the Oscars last week, it's easy to get caught up in the successes of artists that have 'made it'. Let's not forget how they got there... here are this week's best singles from some upcoming (and returning) artists. While watching artists that you have loved for years get nominated for, or even win, prestigious awards is exciting, it's also important to support those struggling artists trying to break through into the industry. There's nothing better than discovering a small musician and watching them blossom into the successes that we see on the big screen. These are definitely ones to watch! MOONOVERSUN - GIRLS/BOYS Following on with the theme of empowerment from International Women's Day, the duo from MOONOVERSUN have released a quirky and vibrant song that will be sure to brush away those lingering winter blues. The song's signature hook will enchant every listener with the relatable line, "all those boys/girls they got it wrong, they just don't understand me". The power duo switch between 'boy' and 'girl' with every line, to represent the heartache that both genders experience, showcasing just what empowerment and equality truly is. Ciaran Lavery - 13 Irish singer-songwriter, Ciaran Lavery, released the second single from his new album last week. It's raw and honest; Lavery's husky tone is bursting with emotion, contrasting with the up beat that accompanies him. He admitted that "this song makes me feel uncomfortable. But I want to be as honest a songwriter as I can be." Gundelach feat. ARY - Past the Building Gundelach's collaboration with ARY on this new song is special. Their voices simultaneously manage to clash and meld together at different points in the song, creating a sound that is both mellow and sharp. It is an electro-R&B tune that uses analogue synths to create its unique sound. The accompanying video that was released last week carries the haunting, galactic atmosphere of the single, and grounds it in our reality. boerd - Blind Boerd's new single is pushing boundaries in the world of electronica. With experience playing the double bass in the Swedish Royal Opera, Swedish Radio Symphony, and the Royal Philharmonic Orchestras, 'Blind' reflects this wide and full atmospheric perspective, only possible due to his experience. Vulnerable and spine-chilling, boerd has created a new world to step into and it needs to be experienced by all. Sub Blue - Teen No More
