Mae Mae Releases New Single and Video “Apple Boy”
Produced by Adam Castilla (of The Colourist), the songs on Gummy Heart Eyes highlights Mae Mae’s unconventional yet welcoming storytelling, zooming in on her distinctive charm blends into her pop appeal. Like her first single “Squishy” – which Consequence called “an easy, playful, sunny ode to a happy afternoon” that lies “somewhere between cutesy and dreamy” – “Apple Boy” reflects how her wide-eyed wonder and optimism collide with the world around her, so much so that the imagery and symbolism in the music on Gummy Heart Eyes were propelled by her actual hunger. She recalls, “I was on a juice cleanse at the time, so I would go to the studio super hungry and we would write about food. That’s the basis for a lot of this music.”
Wild the Coyote has just released his alt-country single “Under the Weather.” The song follows the story of a man trying his best to keep it together for his family, but can’t shake the troubles of drugs and alcohol that are tearing his family apart. “With this song, I was at the wrong place at the wrong time and witnessed a devastating argument between family over drugs and alcohol destroying their relationship. It was painful to see the destruction those two poisons can have on a relationship, especially when there are kids in the picture. I’ve had my share of troubled run-ins with alcohol, so I went and wrote a song that hurt me to the core,” explains Wild the Coyote. “Under the Weather” is the second single from his upcoming EP, 7 Roses, due out in 2022.

A staple in the packed South Florida rap scene for nearly a decade, Pouya’s rise and staying power is a testament to staying true to himself. Reflecting on his come up, Pouya shares “One Deep in the Fleetwood,” a new music video for a soulful and saxophone-drenched banger. Addressing those who think the Miami native betrayed his core values, Pouya raps “I see why they think I sold my soul / Really don’t know how deep this goes”–the haters don’t see the whole picture. Directed by MidVessel, the video echoes the song’s paranoid lyrics, as Pouya is trapped in a surveilled bedroom that’s impossible to escape, regardless of how many different ways he tries to break free. “One Deep in the Fleetwood” is a highlight track off of Blood Was Never Thick As Water, Pouya’s recent album, full of introspective anthems and mosh pit-ready bangers.
