_______________

Trust Myself” – biz colletti vs. “Said It Again” – Isola

Nashville’s biz colletti showcases her powerful, yet controlled voice with her electronic-pop ballad “Trust Myself.” Her second single of 2020, it defeated “Closer” by Karina Magallon in the Round of 32. It reflects on her inability to trust in her own self-control. A stripped version of this song is also available here. “Said It Again” comes from Godmode signee and Las Vegas native Isola, whose brand of dance music has been described by Stereogum as “icy and arty.” It defeated Jamison and Jaime Deraz‘s pop track “Return The Favor” last round.

_______________

Let Your Trouble Go” – Amelie PattersonHeartless” – Luxe

Amelie Patterson‘s “Let Your Trouble Go” nails the kind of folk-meets-modern-pop fusion that artists like Maggie Rogers have made a career out of. Written in New Orleans to the beat of buskers in the French Quarter, the song is about “wishing you could hold a loved one’s burden for them.” It defeated Julia Gartha‘s “Stay Clear” last round. With “Heartless,” Toronto-based artist Luxe returns with his signature blend of emo and trap to create a dark, genre-bending single that fans of early Linkin Park might really enjoy. It led all songs in voting last round with 68, en route to defeating Mobley‘s “James Crow.”

_______________

BOSS B*TCH” – MOL$ x Kame Kami vs. “Undercover” – Gabrielle Current

“BOSS B*TCH” is the opening track from L.A. rapper MOL$‘ 2020 album “HAREM.” From the first bar, it’s a nonstop hype rollercoaster, bolstered by a percussive beat and abrasive rapping. It beat Curtis Lowe‘s “Lost in You” in the Round of 32. Meanwhile, Gabrielle Current‘s “Undercover” is a vibey, vocally-driven slow jam of a neo-soul/R&B song showcasing the impressive level of talent that caught the attention of artists/collaborators like Kaskade and Cassian. It narrowly defeated Toryia‘s “Marilyn” last round.

_______________

The Game” – Grey Oakes vs. “Bleeding” – Parrotfish

North Carolina’s Grey Oakes paid tribute to his John Mayer influence with “The Game,” the second song from his 2020 album “Introvert.” The highlights of this brief-but-catchy song come in the background vocals and guitar riffs. It was able to defeat KOKO‘s “So Nice To Meet You” last round. “Bleeding” is the latest single from Nashville-via-Tampa band Parrotfish, and the track takes on a slightly darker, more cinematic approach than the carefree, beachy sound one might expect from the quartet. The track features Jeena Turner on violin and defeated “Michael” by KAS and BARii in the Round of 32.

_______________

LMLY” – Jared Minnix x With Love vs. “Insatiable” – Xandor x Katie DiCicco

“LMLY” is an acoustic guitar-led pop song with lots of space and some modern production from With Love holding down the foundation. It is Nashville-based artist Jared Minnix‘s third single of 2020. Last round, it defeated “Ride The Waves” by Keira Moran. Boston DJ/producer Xandor‘s most recent single “Insatiable” enlists the help of LA-based singer Katie DiCicco to create a high-energy pop/EDM track with intricate guitars and massive brass sounds. It defeated “Over The Moon” by Jonny Glenn in the Round of 32.

_______________

DAISY LANE – Spectoral Remix” – Kathana x Spectoral vs. “Love OD” – Team

Melbourne producer Spectoral‘s remix of Kathana‘s “Daisy Lane” brings a noticeably chiller and more stripped-back energy to the song. This mix has the type of down-tempo ambience that makes for the perfect soundtrack to a night drive down the interstate. It defeated “Laundry” by NUUXS last round. “Love OD” marks the debut single from Team, a new project formed by The Mids vocalists Jack DeCraene and Andrew Fieler. The song features lavish background vocals, clean guitar tones, and mellow-yet-full production. It finished in second place for voting last round, racking up 50 votes in defeating “Free Counseling” by Dre Skuffs and Passport Rav.

_______________

Fireflies in Brooklyn” – Alekxandr vs. “Magnetic” – Bashaya Soul

“Fireflies In Brooklyn” is Alekxandr‘s second single of 2020, and it has become his most-streamed song on Spotify after a placement on Spotify’s Fresh Finds: Pop playlist. The exceptionally-produced track features an impression-making vocal performance and an intoxicating arpeggiated riff that weaves through the electro-pop soundscape like the stealthiest of ear-worms. Last round, it defeated Lenny Fontana‘s Space Disco Remix of “It’s Time” by GMGN and Saucy Lady. “Magnetic” is an uber-groovy funk/R&B track from Glasgow’s Bashaya Soul with a pumping bass line and clean production. It follows “Old Days” as the producer’s second single of 2020. It defeated “Follow” by Klangkarussell and GIVVEN in the Round of 32.

_______________

Energy” – The Gyrating Hips x Jenni Rudolph x Hazansky vs. “Independence Day” – American Trappist

The fast-paced, dangerously funky “Energy” is the opening track from The Gyrating Hips‘ “S/T” EP, which the Los Angeles band released in August. The song features huge contributions from fellow LA musicians Jenni Rudolph on vocals and Hazansky on keys. It narrowly defeated “My Rhyme & Reason” by Skypp last round. Meanwhile, “Independence Day” is the final selection from American Trappist‘s May album “The Gate.” It features a triumphant build worth sticking around until the end to hear. Just as importantly, it lands with the brand of honest, authentic musical craftsmanship that the band’s founder, former River City Extension frontman Joe Michelini, has become known for. It defeated “All of My Flaws” by The Response in the Round of 32.
