Of all the lists we have had to compile, this, by far, was the toughest. Why? Narrowing the best tracks that were released in 2015 is like finding a needle in a haystack, the haystack being all of the great songs that were released this year. The saying “‘Tis the season” was applicable to the better part of this year as every single day, there was a brand new gift – in the form of music – to be unraveled. To make things less difficult (well, sorta), each Trendio editor was asked to pick five of their favorite songs born...more

It is ridiculous how fast this year has gone. It feels like just yesterday we were counting down the seconds till 2015, and here we are, 3232 days after, prepping for a brand new year. This year, we were lucky enough to have discovered quite the number of talented artists, all of whom reside in different parts of the world. Through our ‘Artist of the Week‘ feature, we managed to introduce our readers to over 200 undeniable talents – pretty impressive, huh? Looking back, there were some artists who truly made this year memorable, be it the music they released...more
This week is automatically great as our ‘Artist of the Week,” Lena, has just dropped a brand new track and guess what? It’s impeccable (!) Premiering on Pigeons and Planes moments ago is “Catapult,” a three way collaboration between the ever-stunning Lena, nomadic songwriter Kat Vinter and UK’s finest offering this year, Little Simz. “Catapult” starts off on a rather slow pace, preparing the listener for quite the musical journey. Lena’s goosebump-inducing vocals, backed by Kat Vinter‘s haunting vocals and merged with Simz‘s bars make “Catapult” one of this year’s standout cuts. Take a listen below!
Here at Trendio we like to introduce you up-and-coming artists first. In the last couple of months, we’ve brought the likes of Scott Helman, Tink, Jess Glynne, Years & Years, Jon Bellion, Devon Baldwin, and many more.

This week, our picks for ones to watch are: R&B newcomer Kiana, indie band making waves BABE, German vocal powerhouse Lena, and Los...more
Now my next AOTW is quite well established throughout Germany and Europe, but I thought it would be nice to give her a nice little North American edge. I mean, she’s kind enough to release her music to the global iTunes and she also just released an amazing new album along with TWO incredible singles. Sounds like the right thing to do, right?! Everyone, meet Lena. Lena Meyer-Landrut first came into the public eye when she auditioned to be the German representative for Eurovision in 2010. She quickly became Germany’s sweetheart with her eclectic song choices and eventually went on...more
German singer/songwriter Lena returns today with a brand new single, and it’s incredible. “Wild & Free” is the new song and no, it’s not from her latest album Crystal Sky (of which we’ve only gotten one single, come on Lena, we want more!). It’s apparently the theme song of the upcoming German film“Fack ju Göhte 2”. This new single “Wild & Free” is stunning. It’s the best bits of both her last two album put together. The lyrics are gorgeous, the hook is sublime and the production is heavenly. It’s instantly been added to one of my favourite songs released...more
