Greyson Likelihood, “Herringbone”

Greyson Likelihood would love his jacket again please — and in case you may convey his coronary heart again with it, that might even be very useful. “Herringbone,” the heartbreaking new single from the alt-pop singer-songwriter, is an ode to all issues misplaced as Likelihood begs his lover to please come again after their breakup. With a mild contact and a few very well-written lyrics, Likelihood owns each ounce of his personal anguish on this attractive new tune.

Siena Liggins, “3 Dangerous”

Siena Liggins is prepared for some experimentation. On “3 Dangerous,” the singer’s newest observe, Liggins manages to take hyper-pop sounds (pitched-up vocals, plinking percussion and blown-out bass drums, to call a number of) and make a deeply introspective, chaotically unhappy breakup tune. Whereas she guarantees self-destruction to her previous flame, Liggins doesn’t implode — she expands her sound and dives into a brand new period of her profession headfirst.
