Every week (ish) I update the Indie Pong playlist with the best tracks in the WORLD. I used to break it down every week but have been a bit lazy, and the requests and cyberbullying are getting to be too much for me, so here is your breakdown. You can follow along and get new
Here are the bullet points: Rina Sawayama was born in Japan and then moved to the UK as a child, and has been living there for 25 years.

Jess Weimer is BACK in a big way with her new banger pop single ‘New Truth’ under her new alias Jessica Mar.
