Speaking on the release, Ross Quinn states: “‘So High’ is a tribute to the people you rely on when you need them most. Everyone needs the right people around them, especially during all the chaos the last few years has thrown at us.”
We are somehow completely captured by that intriguing song and video ‘TUCKITIN’ by talented alternative pop and R&B artist YAS. The LA-based, Japanese-Egyptian-Kuwaiti artist is a classically trained violinist, expert songwriter, arranger, composer and producer and all of her songs tell a story, with lyrics that demonstrate the unapologetic approach she takes to her work.
London based newcomer Eden Rain just dropped her heartwarming debut single ‘Wake Up, You’re Stuck’. “For me, this song is the feeling of being eaten alive from the inside out,” says Eden. “I wrote it after waking up from a nightmare when I had fallen asleep with Planet Earth on in the background. To me the song feels like a fight or flight situation: do I stay being eaten alive or attempt to save myself from all the things I’m running from?”
While singing I was often looking into people’s eyes thinking “this is it”, life is happening right now, we’re in a room together feeling it, everyone is an island in the same stream. The new song So Sweet So Nice by German-Polish singer and songwriter John Moods will get you into the ’80s groove.
“Beyond Reason is about this melancholic state we felt at the time, the feeling of being depressed, overwhelmed, but still wanting to be hopeful.” tells us Cologne-based electronica duo Ameli Paul on their new track and our premiere song for today. Out of their stunning three-part EP the melodic tune expresses exactly what we feel right now and their sound just carries us into wonderful memories of us dancing the night away.
The American indie pop group actually came together in Australia when Noah Taylor followed his heart across the world, and down under. He ended up crashing with the group of guys who unknowingly were about to become his bandmates. With a modern alt pop sound that pays homage to some of the genre’s most prolific artists like The 1975 and Troye Sivan, 19&YOU has already emerged with a compete level just as exciting as the aforementioned greats, and they’re just beginning to strut their stuff.
“There’s a great sense of freedom in being an independent artist, but you don’t become very rich. But at the end of the day I get to share what I truly love and am passionate about. It’s cliché but every time I meet people on tour, coming to my shows or reaching out and telling me my songs mean a lot to them, I feel like the richest person in the world.”
Alice Phoebe Lou´s new song “Dirty Mouth” just wants to make you dance barefoot and hug with strangers. And carry the inner smile to the outside world. Thank you Alice Phoebe Lou!
“We are 4 people with 4 different opinions and obviously we don’t agree on every single thing. But it’s also great because you’ve got 4 different perspectives and characters.” We sat down with the Vienna based newcomer band – and siblings – Wallners to talk about their new cinematic video, the best thing to work with family and when a song is ready for them.
What a perfect track to slowly get the day started! American singer-songwriter and producer Lake Stovall’s upcoming single Lace revolves around craving intimacy in a relationship which goes beyond the physical. “Lemme feel more than them lips, lemme feel more than a kiss, you gon’ make me take a trip, when I get there, we gon run run run”.
Donna Arendse, founder of Lekker Collective and A&R Manager at Majestic Casual curates a monthly playlist of soulful tracks by – or featuring – female artists. “The first installment of my soulful, women-led playlist for 2021 is a celebration of women of colour for Black History Month.”
Born and raised in the capital city of Jamaica the duo have been acquainted since their school years, they spent years traveling solo, accumulating the inspiration that ultimately led them to their magnum opus in 2017- DejaVilla.
While watching the magnificent video the world stands still for a while. We get lost in those pastell colours of the horizon and we feel like merging with the dancers.
Many friends told me recently that they were listening to old music from their childhood or teenage years. Funnily enough I did as well. Sort of calming in those turbulent times to dwell in a bit of nostalgia, isn´t it? Well, so Argentine-American teenage artist Pilar Victoria’s new single, a stunning 80s-inspired song, accompanied by a warm & enchanting visual, is just the sound I need right now.
Music is meant to unite us. That concept feels especially relevant today, but for the brothers of Saint Nomad, it’s become one of the driving principles behind their lives as individuals, and a band. Nikita, Ruslan, and Yan Odnoralov were just small children when their parents moved their family from a small Russian city called Pyatigorsk between the Black and Caspian seas to Denver, Colorado, USA.
