Homelessness and Domestic Violence addressed in the new video from Flora Cash

“No Hard Feelings” is the sound of a moment of clarity, a bouncing guitar line intertwining with Ellie Rowsell’s vocals. Speaking on the track Rowsell says, “I started out trying to make a really cheesy almost Motown-y, Ronettes kind of song about the end of a relationship, and feeling ‘What’s the point of being miserable about it?’ But it was short, because originally it was played so fast. I tried to make it longer, but I didn’t have any more words — I had said everything I wanted to say perfectly, and didn’t want to ruin it with more. So instead we slowed it down, and I felt way more moved by it like that.”

LA indie rock duo Pacer share melancholy “Waiting For The Punch”

“Waiting For The Punch is a song about dealing with loss before it actually happens. It’s about hope, memory, regret, and how we all try to make sense of things that are impossible for us to understand. I heard a musician being interviewed say that sometimes, songwriting allows you to access wisdom and clarity that would otherwise take you years to achieve on your own. On a personal level, that’s definitely true of this song as putting it together helped us through some very dark, difficult times.”
