“GRIFF is the hottest new artist to come out of the UK since Dua Lipa.” V Magazine
“Writer, producer, stylist, designer and creative director, it’s clear that GRIFF is a force to be reckoned with” British Vogue
Of the song, Kiwi Jr. have said, “We came up with the concept for this song while in an Uber XL loaded up with all of our gear on the way to a gig at the Silver Dollar (r.i.p.) in Toronto – the driver was going on about how much soccer player Paul Pogba was being paid and we started thinking about the weight of “football money” as controlled, or scaled currency by which to measure things. Musically we came up with something like Superchunk meets the Clean, but I distinctly remember trying to sound early Misfits in the early demo stages.”
“The woozy-sounding R&B songs produced by Grand Prairie’s Kaash Paige are reminiscent of artists like SZA and Kehlani. And that’s probably why Dallas music fans have flocked to her SoundCloud page to stream her singles thousands of times.”- NPR
BEN ABRAHAM DECLARES “NOBODY WANTS TO HEAR SONGS ANYMORE”
“Nobody Wants to Hear Songs Anymore” follows the Australian singer-songwriter’s recently released label debut single, “Satellite.” That track – as well as Ben’s signing to Atlantic Records – were announced via Billboard, who praised the track as “a stunningly cinematic cut, keeping the barebones instrumentation to just piano and strings, letting Abraham’s warm vocal shine.”
Speaking about the new song, Cailin reveals, “It’s my favorite song I’ve ever done. It literally brings me to tears. The story is very personal but also relatable. The song literally describes someone watch you deteriorate as a human and not doing anything about it,”she continues. “It’s so sad to realize you’re in a relationship with someone who knows you’re hurting, but won’t help change the situation.”
The English music blog God Is In The TV has named the Swedish artist SoLBLoMMa (“Sunflower” in English) “a unique performer with a unique vocal” and says that “we need these people operating at the margins of society to help keep us sane.” The lifestyle magazine Phoenix hailed SoLBLoMMa’s last single Charles de Gaulle as “a masterpiece from an alternative universe”.
