After a slight delay, we’ve returned for the third instalment of our new music feature (and we promise to be more consistent). This week, we’ve boosted the usual number three up to four, since we had a wealth of strong submissions from yesterday’s in-house meeting. Find out more below.

Check out previous weeks of this feature: 1 | 2.

We’ve always made a conscious effort to mine for, and introduce, new artists to the site. Without getting into the specifics (*eye roll emoji*), as a user, you’ll likely know of a particular artist that you first encountered here on the HNHH pages. With that being said, beyond combing through our regular submissions for our weekend Heatseeker highlights, we’re going to be spotlighting our favorite staff-submitted tracks each week, following our in-office A&R meeting. 

Here’s a quick breakdown of how it works.

  • Every week, each of our staff members submits a song from an artist we’ve never yet (or ~barely~) posted on HNHH (so get your song into the hands of a staff member, and wow them with your musical prowess, hint hint) 
  • The song does not need to be new, in fact, most of the time, it’s an older record
  • This can include music videos
  • We listen to all the submissions as a team (weekly) 
  • Each staff member votes on their top three favorite submissions out of that week’s batch of submissions 
  • We cull the votes, and feature the top 3 on the website, in a handy article like this
  • Also: in an effort to include direct user/fan-submitted music as well, we’ll be going through our Soundcloud messages and picking out a few extra submissions from there to include in the meeting each week (please send us your most fire submissions there, it can be your song or someone else’s)

Now that you have the breakdown, take a look at this week’s top four new artist discoveries– we’ve included some basic info on each as well.
