Conan Gray – “Lonely Dancers”

“Lonely Dancers” gives listeners a sense of nostalgia with heavy nods to popular 80s instrumentals. The song follows Gray through heartbreak, using music as a distraction from his emotions. As he sings, “We’re lonely dancers, baby / Dance with me so we don’t cry,” the cure to his broken heart calls for a song in the jukebox and dancing the night away.

Jeff Satur – “Yellow Leaf”

“Yellow Leaf” is the eighth track from Thai multihyphenate, Jeff Satur’s, newly released album Space Shuttle No.8. Written and produced by Satur himself, the track spins the tale of a beautiful love story, aided by Satur’s soft yet raw vocals and acoustic guitar. The official description of the song details that it’s a profession of love so immense it’s immeasurable even compared the amount of yellow leaves that blanket the earth in the fall. “When autumn leaves turn yellow and fall, the sheer quantity of them seems impossible to compare to how much I love you. The feelings I have for you, no matter how much time passes, will never run out.” However, the song also holds a bit of melancholy timbre in Satur’s voice especially as the song winds down with a repeated lyric of “Forever love for you” leaving the listener guessing on what becomes of this love.

Jinsol – “WITHOUT YOU ft. JEY”

Craving a break from the lovey-dovey? We’ve got you covered. Fashion designer, artist, and musician Jinsol Woo dropped the sultry R&B track, “WITHOUT YOU” featuring Korean hip-hop artist, JEY. Produced by Zerum and written by Woo, “WITHOUT YOU” tells the story of an unhealthy relationship. Alongside JEY’s smooth rap, Woo perfectly captures the toxic cycle of staying with someone regardless of what they may have done with you. It couldn’t be more clear than when Jinsol sings sorrowfully in the chorus “You know that I’m nothing without you.”
