Fauvely Premieres Video, “Savannah” via MidWest Action

Fauvely is the project of Chicago-based singer-guitarist Sophie Brochu, who creates deeply personal dream-pop music. After completing her master’s in fiction writing and feeling frustrated with the constraints of her craft, Sophie turned to music for its raw and immediate release. The title of her debut EP, Watch Me Overcomplicate This, speaks to the confessional tone of songs that range from delicately self-effacing to hauntingly sad.

Phoebe Bridgers Shares “Christmas Song” Cover ft. Vocals By Jackson Browne, On Tour Now

“McCarthy Trenching is singer-songwriter Dan McCarthy’s band. We played a show together in Omaha this last year. They named the band after the trenching company owned by Dan’s uncle so they could sell those t-shirts instead of having to make their own. The first time I heard this song it hit me like a ton of bricks. A lot of McCarthy Trenching songs do that. It’s not that often that I hear a Christmas song that doesn’t make me want to quit music. I played a show in L.A. around the holidays last year where I covered it for the first time. Jackson Browne was there, and he came up to me after the show to tell me how much he loved the song. A couple days later, Dan got a Bandcamp notification on his desktop computer that someone paid 50 bucks for his record and wrote a nice note and signed it Jackson Browne. He thought someone was fucking with him. So when I decided to record a version of the song, I knew who I wanted to sing on it. Plus, I have wanted to make music with Jackson as long as I’ve wanted to make music.”

Sonta Releases Official Video For “2AM” Today

“To me, ‘2AM’ represents the epitome of being in your feelings. It’s kind of just giving in to your emotions and just being honest with yourself in that moment,” Sonta tells RESPECT MAGAZINE, on the new track and video. “We often mask our emotions and that’s where I got the video idea from, because It’s based on a dream, which is really just women’s intuition. That dream was warning me, but of course, I always give them the benefit of the doubt and that’s where my EP comes in, because it’s the real thing. Hood Love Vol. One isn’t a dream. It’s the actual storyline.”
