Sarah Close’s single “Only You”
OK, this is your girl power jam of the month. Sarah Close is a British singer-songwriter who you may know from her covers on YouTube. She released an EP in April, and is now back with her second single “Only You.” It’s a breakup song that tells the story of the singer realizing she isn’t being treated right and moving toward a happier future. How awesome is that? You’ll love this catchy song, and be screaming along to the lyrics in no time.
Alex Aiono’s “Does It Feel Like Falling” featuring Trinidad Cardona
We've been watching Alex for a while now. In fact, we named him as an artist to watch in 2017 and loved his single, "Question." Now, Alex is back with a catchy, upbeat and very sweet single. Alex says the song is, “a poem about how love shows up when you never see it coming.” See, we told you he was adorable! This song will definitely be you and your bae's go-to car tune.
