New Release – EMMA WALL – Bittersweet – ART:ERY Music Group

EMMA WALL remembers, “when writing ‘Bittersweet,’ I channeled feelings I had previously neglected during an on-off relationship. I had forgotten to consider how much the uncertainty drained me. I like that the music conflicts with the rather serious message.”


The highly anticipated debut album ‘Odd One Out’ was co-written by GIRLI with various collaborators such as Fast Friends and MNDR / Peter Wade (Charli XCX, Brooke Candy) written and recorded in Los Angeles. ‘Odd One Out’ follows from GIRLI’s Hot Mess EP and features fan favourites Day Month Second, Hot Mess and Young. The 9-track album marks the new mature alt-pop sound from GIRLI. Drawing inspiration from real life experiences ‘Odd One Out’ explores identity and the difficulties of adolescence.

Paul Woolford ft Karen Harding – You Already Know

Blessed with a soaring vocal, ‘You Already Know’ flaunts Paul’s vintage sounding chord patterns to create a retro-sounding summer floorfiller. The synth-led production follows his recent club-ready D-Mix of the single, which marked the 400th release on esteemed dance label Positiva Records who recently celebrated their 25th anniversary.

Look Mum No Computer releases debut single ‘Groundhog Day’

Created with synthesisers he built himself, ‘Groundhog Day’ is a wacky and feel-good introduction into the mind of Sam Battle aka Look Mum No Computer. With a big bouncy beat he pulls together chopped up vocal samples and warped synth noises, fracturing minds as if The Flaming Lips went hip hop and jammed with Rat Boy.

Molly Tuttle’s new album out today

Tuttle began performing at a young age as part of a family bluegrass band with her father and brothers and moved to Nashville four years ago, broadening her musical tastes and building her musical community. Now fronting her own band, she continues to break boundaries and garner the respect of her peers, while selling out shows both here and in the UK. With WHEN YOU’RE READY, Tuttle gets to make the album she always dreamed of making, with a collection of genre-defying, personal songs that prove that she’s more than just a virtuoso. Recorded in Nashville with producer Ryan Hewitt (The Avett Brothers, The Lumineers), WHEN YOU’RE READY is the perfect introduction to her astonishing range and versatility and establishes Tuttle as an artist with a long and exciting career ahead of her.

Michael Calfan makes a refreshing return with dance-floor anthem ‘My Place ft. Ebenezer’

“I love mixing genres, it’s what I tried to do with On You and Got You, mixing the RnB/Urban vibe to something more house.” Michael Calfan adds “I feel this is the future, the urban world has something more creative than the electronic dance scene – they are not stuck in a format or a sound, they just do what they want to do and I want to do the same.”

FAMOUS reveal hectic new single ‘Jack’s House’ via Untitled [Recs]

London tainted-pop six-piece Famous reveal skittish, paranoid new single Jack’s House. Wiry guitars and bass stabs lock in with a rushed drum beat, and flurries of panicked synths complete the bed on which vocalist Jack Merrett delivers manic observations.

Dayseeker Release New Song “Crooked Souls” — LISTEN

About the song, the band said, “This track is about one’s self-exploration of their inner demons. This is a milestone for our sound as a band and a sign of what’s to come for our next album.”

Brooklyn-based Kris Kelly ponders place and purpose on new track ‘Birthplace’

Originally from Austin, TX, Kris Kelly moved to New York City to attend NYU, where he studied classical vocal performance and music composition. After five years travelling South America, Kelly returned to the USA and recorded his upcoming debut album. The first song from the self-produced body of work is a testament to origin, ‘Birthplace’.

New video: Richard James Simpson ‘I Couldn’t Be Happier’

As the great 13th-century Persian poet Rumi once wrote, “Understand the nature of impurity. If your key is bent, the lock will not open.” We find a similar conundrum opined in Simpson’s song “I Couldn’t Be Happier.” The brooding, hypnotic music tinged with echoes of slowed-down slide guitar and a Shruti box are peppered with lyrics beckoning the listener to “come one step closer” and give themselves to an unknown, shadowy presence. It attempts to lure them in with the promise of a secret and a key that will allow them walk for free. The feel is uneasy – like an open switch blade – while at the same time alluring. The title infers that the key is already within, that we are already whole and do not need to be tempted,or conned, by secrets; our human spirit is finer than any artificial substitute.

Booka600 Carries the Weight of His Past in “War Scars”

With a skill for melody that rivals his mentor Lil Durk, Chicago’s Booka600 is the city’s next one to blow. Rhythmically singing atop mellow keyboard and piercing guitars, Booka shares “War Scars,” his latest single. Throughout the song, Booka dwells on his past, reflecting on the good and bad. He thanks his mom for spending her extra cash on Jordans and reminisces about shooting his BB gun in his backyard, but he still carries the scars from the more troubling aspects of his past. Premiered by Dirty-Glove Bastard, “War Scars” follows “Baguette Bandz,” Booka’s Phil Collins-sampling standout from the compilation mixtape Lil Durk Presents: Only The Family Involved Vol. 2.

The Naked Eye teams up with Marie Dahlstrøm for ‘See You Later’

The Naked Eye continues to build anticipation towards the release of her EP Love’s Grave by unveiling its second single ‘See You Later’, which features Marie Dahlstrøm.

Acting as a sequel to ‘Before Then’, a previous single collaboration between The Naked Eye and Marie Dahlstrøm, ‘See You Later’ is a continuation of that story. Written by both artists, the track begins with some fiery, emotionally-charged lyrics that blossom into an unapologetic open letter to an ex-partner. The soulful musical production on this occasion is provided by Marie Dahlstrøm herself.
