Jump-start your day with this new one “Born On The Wind” from the collaboration of London-based Holiday Sidewinder (former vocalist for Bridezilla) and PBO (Personal Best Orchestra). The song is named after the inscription “Born on the wind, by the wrath of the sea, under the sky’s infinity, 1966″ that was found on Sidewinder’s Grandmother’s ring from her Grandfather she received last Christmas. That song has all sorts of carefree vibes combined with synth funk lines and sparkling production. It is out now via Personal Best/MGM and can be downloaded here. Stream below.

It has been quite the productive year for LA by way of D.C. genre-bending four-piece MISUN. They have released all sorts of great standalone singles that have us wondering when we will get a proper release from the crew. “Goodbye Summer” is their latest song to add to the stack and, just like the title states, is a goodbye the last days of summer. It is a throwback to the girl groups of the mid part of last century and comes just in time before the upcoming Labor Day weekend here in the States. Stream and download it below.

Olivia McCarthy, the 17-year-old Brisbane-based artist who goes by JOY., really showed herself as one to keep an eye on with her debut song “Captured” and subsequent collaboration with Young Franco “Close 2 U”. The former has received the video treatment that serves as sort of an introduction for her to the rest of the world. A radio introduction of the artist and song begin the clip with a vast array of imagery flashing across depicting the world that surrounds her as she performs on a rooftop alone. You can watch it below and still download the song for free here.

When Los Angeles’ Sarah Negahdari isn’t fronting The Happy Hollows, she has another project under the moniker Pisces. It serves as an outlet for songs that don’t necessarily fit the mold for the Hollows and has more of a psych-folk vibe about it. One of her songs “Being With You” received the visual treatment capturing the fading warmth of summer full of washed out colors and underwater fun with LA serving as the backdrop. Watch it below.
