Here’s a lowdown of all the new international and Indian tracks that we’re loving and listening to on loop right now.
Still Woozy – BS (11.9.20)
For Sven Gamsky (stage name Still Woozy), artistry means processing emotions via music, listening to sounds’ textures, and warding off perfectionism. Gamsky is known for his psychedelic, feel-good pop songs like “Habit” and “Goodie Bag.” In his new single“BS”, Gamsky discusses his artistic process,and what he misses about concerts.
Rhye - Helpless (10.9.20)

Morethanray – LOST (21.9.20)
Morethanray’s moniker itself tells the story of the artist. Rahul Singh’s journey of creating music is based on a deep and very personal process that began with self-reflection which he articulated through writing — towards something More Than Ray. Lost, in continuation of Ray’s earlier releases, treads the path of self-exploration, more specifically about moving on from a loss without losing oneself.
Anhad + Tanner – Haari
