GALXARA battles with the different sides of herself in the new “Jealous Of Myself” music video. She confronts FURY, MANIA, and VANITY- characters that represent exaggerated versions of the worst sides of herself. All of the emotions combine to create the real GALXARA, who is complex and continuously evolving. “I am in a constant battle and growth cycle of trying to be better and slowly chip away at each of those identities within me,” GALXARA explains. “It will probably take a lifetime but as long as I’m trying to be a better person every day and not let those ‘characters’ rule over me, then I win.”


Spinning an array of sounds through a psychedelic lens, the track slips under genre lines with confidence, charisma, and charm. Meanwhile, his voice bobs and weaves between woozy melodies and tight rhymes, conjuring imagery through vivid lyrics a la, “Jimi Hendrix playing out in Malibu, it’s bringing out another side of you” and the confession, “I don’t want to talk; I want to lay with you.” As he canvases an empty beach in the visual, artful editing brings transcendent and grainy vignettes together in one intimate fever dream around an ecstatic sonic high.

LENII Releases Delicious Track “Cereal” From Forthcoming EP

Produced by Nick Sadler, “Cereal” is – as Lenii describes it – a “standing-up-for-myself song.” “I had recently broken up with my boyfriend of over two years, and it was the worst thing Iʼve ever experienced.” Almost immediately, at a time when I was at my most vulnerable, a close friend swooped in thinking I was up for grabs (I know this sounds like such teenage drama). I was so angry that my own feelings were totally disregarded and I was made to feel like an object that could be passed around. I know most girls can probably relate to this in some way.”

Serenity for uncertain times: Christopher Sky shares immersive track “Under the Waves”

For Los Angeles-based ambient electronic artist Christopher Sky, performing was capturing beautiful emotions in his music, but it wasn’t enough.

EYK says, “’Seen It All’ is a track about the people closest to you seeing you at your most vulnerable and you seeing them at theirs. It’s about the people that have seen you consistently make mistakes and make bad decisions but are still there for you regardless, even if you don’t learn from them. Whether that be your family or your closest friends, they are the ones that have seen you at your lowest and helped you through it but expect nothing back.”
