“Sleeping In On Sundays” – Dante Palminteri
defeated “Lie To Me” by Luna Byrd in the Round of 32
defeated “Call Me Back” by Maripo$a in the Sweet Sixteen
defeated “Imposter” by Benjamin Silver in the Elite Eight
“Sleeping In On Sundays” is a summery, fun indie-pop song from Dante Palminteri that fans of John Mayer or Easy Life would enjoy. It features jazz-influenced guitars, a supremely catchy hook, and a grooving bass line.
Palminteri, who also has acting credits for movies like Sharknado 2: The Second One and Bleed for This, relies on his buttery vocals and squeaky-clean guitar work on this song, which is bolstered by a tight drum take and polished production.

“Turn Around” – Juke of June
defeated “The One” by Richard in the Round of 32
defeated “Smoke” by Simen Mitlid in the Sweet Sixteen
defeated “Info Nympho” by Sam Soto in the Elite Eight
“Turn Around” is the latest single from Juke of June and brings one of the most powerful vocal performances in Glassetonbury history from singer Jackson Hahn. Borrowing elements from 70s rock, Americana, and folk-country, this song feels both massive and homey at the same time.
The song has proven to be as much of a voting powerhouse as it is a vocal one. This Nashville-based six-piece led all songs in voting in the Elite Eight, defeating a worthy challenger in Sam Soto‘s “Info Nympho.”
“Remember” – Elina
defeated “LILO” by Superheart in the Round of 32
defeated “Barry” by Spec Kay in the Sweet Sixteen
defeated “City of Stars” by Kaso in the Elite Eight
“Remember,” the newest acoustic ballad from Swedish singer-songwriter Elina, grabbed a hold of my ear from my first listen with its enchanting vocal melody in the verses. She’s able to hold your attention for the rest of the song with her touching delivery. Elina maintains a whispery-but-confident tone throughout the song that comes out both beautiful and controlled.
Songs that come with this level of stripped-back vulnerability either land hard or fall, hard. This song is very much a resident of the first category. Her emotion is real and believable. It doesn’t feel contrived or cheesy at any point, and it stands out as a worthy semifinalist.

“Blue Jean Girl” – Brian Elliot
defeated “Lost My Love” by Maisie May in the Round of 32
defeated “Friends” by Eric Vattima and MNERVA in the Sweet Sixteen
defeated “Rodeo” by Teller & The Tale in the Elite Eight
Brian Elliot‘s “Blue Jean Girl” lands in the quirky-cool vein of indie rock that reminds me of artists like Franz Ferdinand and Arcade Fire, and it makes for a positive introduction to the East Nashville artist. It has an ear-worm of a chorus with a huge drop-off that builds back up nicely.
Elliot’s been a force in the voting so far, consistently being one of the top vote-getters in the bracket. His cinematic approach to indie rock has certainly left its impression on the tournament.
