We at TREMG love spotlighting rising and underappreciated talent to give underground creators a platform and the recognition they deserve. So many artists spent September offering fans new treats, releasing some of the best work of their career, and opening up in their lyrics like never before. Throughout September, we got to talk to incredible artists like Stolengoods, Forrest Isn’t Dead, and MIA GLADSTONE about their new projects, but there’s a whole world of talent making their own waves. Here are some of our favorite new releases from this month!
Ada Marques – “porcelain”
Ada Marques stole our hearts with her debut track “Bell” a few months ago, but “porcelain” might just be taking the crown for our favorite Ada song. The acoustic-driven track opens with gentle strings before delving into a scathing reflection on the end of a relationship, really diving into Ada’s emotions like we’ve never heard before. As usual, her vocal talents and vulnerable lyrics shine and prove Ada to be an indie-pop newcomer you need on your radar! Get ahead of the curve and connect with her now on Facebook, Instagram, and TikTok.
I always write songs from a place of hurt, but this song seemed to come from a place of anger. It was the first time in a long time that I allowed myself to write when I was purely angry. I usually write to process my feelings more calmly, but this song was written like a rant rather than a self-controlled dissection of a situation.Ada Marques
Anna Duboc – “Sinking Feeling”
Simply put, “Sinking Feeling” is one of the most beautiful songs we’ve heard this year. Anna Duboc has such a unique way with words and that really shines through on this anthem of self-reflection. Between her lush vocals and the dreamy synth-pop atmosphere, this track is a standout that deserves a spot on your chill playlists!

David Archuleta – “Faith In Me”
After a short break and vocal chord surgery, David Archuleta is back with the pop-rock anthem “Faith In Me,” a melodic celebration of taking risks and following your heart in spite of what others might say. It feels refreshing and triumphant, letting David step into a new chapter of his career while boosting up fans in the process. “Faith In Me” is the perfect track to start your fall on a high note and it’ll definitely energize you to reach for your goals. For more inspiration, check out David Archuleta on Facebook, Instagram, TikTok, Twitter, and his website!
‘Faith In Me’ is about escaping and leaving all your worries behind and just going for a new adventure. Not caring about what anyone thinks- letting go and taking off. We actually re-wrote the song to accommodate where I’m at now as we originally began writing it before I came out. In the end, the main objective was to just go forward with someone and not care what anyone thinks.David Archuleta
G Herbo – “Me, Myself & I” (feat. A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie)
G Herbo recruits A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie for a stunningly introspective track about how they still walk with their “head to the sky” in spite of all the difficulties they’ve faced. Both artists have opened up in their music before, but “Me, Myself & I” does so in a fresh new light. This track makes the listener feel less alone in what they might be going through, and the fact that it’s a collab between people who relate makes it feel even more unifying. You can link up with G Herbo on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and his website, and get to know A Boogie on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and his site.
A Boogie is my brother. We’ve been locked in since the beginning. It’s a deep record inspired by real-life events. When I heard the beat, I knew what I wanted to say. It’s about the pain we’ve felt and certain situations we couldn’t control.G Herbo
Havanna Winter – “Heaven To Me”
We have another new release from a TREMG interview alum: this time, from Havanna Winter! “Heaven To Me” feels like a departure from the grittier sound of her debut single, “rain rain go away,” but still offers a pop-rock flair accented by stunning vocals and Havanna’s playful charisma. It’s a “he’s no good for you” fantasy complete with matching tattoos, messy apartments, and dreamy rooftop performance shots, creating a sonic and visual world that’s all Havanna. Stay up to date with her future releases on Facebook, Instagram, TikTok, Triller, and Twitter!
‘Heaven To Me’ is about a girl who is hopelessly in love with a bad boy and ignores all the red flags. I love this song so much and always blast it in the car with my friends.Havanna Winter
Hotel Fiction – “Man on the Moon”
Hotel Fiction bring their quirky indie sound to the next level with “Man on the Moon,” a reflective track about the downsides of a long-distance relationship and how distance can strain a connection. It throws in a little bit of hyperbole to highlight the physical and emotional gap between the narrator and their partner, insisting he’s exploring the galaxy and slowly floating away in the process. It’s equally playful and devastating, showcasing Hotel Fiction’s attention to emotional details and clever storytelling. Find more of this dynamic duo on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and their official site!
‘Man on the Moon,’ despite being one of our most upbeat songs, is a metaphor for a struggling relationship. Distance can make someone you love feel like they’re on a different planet, physically and emotionally. It’s bittersweet to hear about a loved one’s adventures over the phone when they are far away. You’re happy they’re having the time of their life but wish you were there to enjoy those moments with them. The song never asks them to come home and has long accepted the fact that maybe they never will.Hotel Fiction
MAX – “IT’S YOU” (feat. keshi)
MAX and keshi offer a heartwarming ode to love and appreciation with the mellow “IT’S YOU,” which feels just as cozy as the story in the lyrics. From the harmonies to the gentle brass instruments in the background, this collab is truly a match made in heaven. Grab your significant other and celebrate each other’s company as you listen to this gorgeous track! You can learn more about MAX on Facebook, Instagram, TikTok, Twitter, and his official site, and step into the world of keshi on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and his website.
keshi and I wanted to create a song that just felt special and intimate. We both wrote the song for the loves of our lives and we bonded over painting the picture, lyrically, of a love story that’s all about the little moments that feel warm and close in a relationship [It’s about] wanting to hold onto a feeling forever.MAX
MisterWives – “Wrongside”
Be on the right side of history and check out MisterWives’ latest single, the addictive “Wrongside!” This irresistibly catchy pop-rock track is all about stepping into a new chapter and learning what really matters – spoiler alert, the negative thoughts that pop up in your head don’t. It sounds soaked in sunshine and the message is just as bright, so make sure you check this one out if you need an inspirational boost. Step out of the darkness and soak in MisterWives’ positive energy on Instagram and Twitter!
I have spent a lot of my time on the wrong side of my mind – the one full of fear, doubts, insecurities, shame. I hope ‘Wrongside’ feels like a friend to anyone who struggles being kind to their mind.Lead singer Mandy Lee
NMIXX – “COOL (Your rainbow)”
After making a statement with their bold debut “O.O” and recent single “DICE,” NMIXX show us a new side to their artistry on the more mellow “COOL (Your rainbow),” which sees the girls encouraging someone they care about to open their eyes and see their “rainbow.” You could see it as a lament of unrequited love or even a love song to their NSWERs, who they “will stay with” as they step into new territory and continue to make a name for themselves on the global stage. Keep up with NMIXX on Facebook, Instagram, TikTok, and Twitter!
Sean Kingston – “Lucky Him”
If you spent the 2000s grooving to songs like “Fire Burning” and “Beautiful Girls,” you’ll be stoked to know that Sean Kingston is back and better than ever! He just delivered his brand new Road To Deliverance album, which features the sunny track “Lucky Him” – the song sees Sean observing as an ex moves on with someone new, “kicking [himself]” for letting her go. It blends airy reggae with the adrenaline of trap beats and bass, offering a fresh spin on everything Sean does best. Keep an eye out for his follow-up album, Deliverance, and get to know Sean on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter!
Zach Seabaugh – “Christmas Lights”
Christmas came early this year thanks to Zach Seabaugh, who gifted us with the bittersweet track “Christmas Lights.” This earworm-worthy song laments a crush that doesn’t give Zach the attention he deserves, insisting that waiting for them is “like leaving up [his] Christmas lights in June; it’s embarrassing.” We can already see this song blowing up on TikTok this winter – before its release, it already received nearly 700,000 impressions and thousands of pre-saves. Don’t wait until the holidays to connect with Zach on Facebook, Instagram, TikTok, and Twitter!
