GunFight pairs commercial electro-pop elements with a unique structure that pulls listeners in.

OXP – Want You to Love Me

BlindBuyer – Stin Zali

Embracing his Greek heritage, BlindeBuyer’s enchanting vocals deliver lyrics in his native tongue on his latest track ‘Stin Zali.’ Haunting synth pads and a moving beat form the crux of the song, which follows a refreshingly unique structure.
