Hero Fisher is back with ‘Lonely’
Hero Fisher’s new song ‘Lonely’ is a masterclass in reinvention. Rich in ambience and with a slow crawling beat, Hero’s subtle and tender vocal performance evokes a deep sense of isolation amidst the cluttered mysteries of daily life. Drums, pianos and synths all work in tandem brewing a restless sonic tempest as the song subtly crescendos to its cathartic conclusion. ‘Lonely’ could be the soundtrack to a deeply arresting and sad movie, long expanses of sound create a panorama over which Hero lays some of her deepest and most internal lyricism yet. As her career progresses onwards it’s anyone’s guess where her sound will travel next, but if ‘Lonely’ is any indicator, she’s already one of the most unique new offerings this year.

Bobby Love Releases Smooth R&B-Influenced House Track “Drink About”
Canadian DJ and producer Bobby Love made his mark on the dance music world with his popular single “Still,” and now he’s back with another irresistible R&B-influenced house track titled “Drink About.” Bobby teamed up with Zanski for the track, who shares his affinity for R&B and unique productions. Their collaboration resulted in lush, deep basslines peppered with drums and piano melodies overlayed by characteristically sensuous vocals. “Drink About” was almost scrapped in the studio, but Bobby and Zanski spent countless hours reworking it until the perfect combination clicked and made this catchy, groovy jam. “Working with Zanski was super fun and felt like a true collaboration,” says Bobby Love. “It’s cool to listen back to the song, I feel like you can pin point each of our influences on the track. Thankfully we both had a lot of similar tastes and influences which I think made the collaboration so natural.” True to Bobby’s style, “Drink About” is hard to pinpoint from a genre perspective, and it’s just another example of how he is among the artists paving the way of the burgeoning experimental electronic music movement.
Trove (Davey Muise of Vanna), Release “MASSIVE” New Music Video
“Visuals have always played a role in music for me. If the first time I’m hearing a song is while seeing the music video, or watching it performed live, that image is forever framing that sound. If I’m experiencing visuals after hearing, It’s aways interesting to see the artists vision of what that song means or inspires in them. I play a little game to see if my head came up with the same vibes theres did. So this is the visual in my head for it, that the director made come to life.”
