Sister Ray Signs to Royal Mountain Records / Shares Debut Single “Crucified”
What does it take to not only become unburdened by your past, but to embrace its many contours? Sister Ray, the project of Edmonton-born songwriter Ella Coyes (they/she), was conceived out of necessity; a self-designed vehicle built to examine trauma with unflinching honesty. Armed with a voice that soars and scrapes in equal measure, Coyes converts first-person recollections of big, complicated love into universally potent allegories, and the result is an unyielding, spacious, and commanding form of indie rock, rooted in the folk tradition, that transforms unvarnished, interior reflections into a generous public offering.

Out Today: Genre bending Ryan Bourne shares innovative dystopian bop single “Black Hole”
Love is to be found within “Black Hole” too, which blends curious synth lines with dreamy guitar-led pop. The song is sung from the perspective of a “kind of sexy non-binary spiritual illumination realizing itself in spite of the trouble we appear to be in.”
“Post-apocalyptic anxiety, pandemic isolation, climate change and nuclear threat, social media’s information saturation overwhelm, the vapidity and materiality and vacuum of much of technified modernity… Yet human contact [is] being made nonetheless,” Bourne explains.
Today, Brooklyn-by-way of Seattle indie pop artist Work Wife shares her third single, “Creases,” a vulnerable track about the tension between prioritizing your partner and yourself.

PROFESSOR GREEN SHARES THE NEW SINGLE ‘DANCE LIKE A TORY’ – WATCH THE VIDEO HERE
‘Dance Like A Tory’ is Professor Green’s manifesto in song, a playful prod at the privileged politicians who believed that they’re too important to follow the very rules that they made. Propelled by the kind of hook that takes just one listen to stick firmly in your consciousness (“Ain’t a party, it’s a work event… Ain’t a rave, it’s a work event!”), it’s full of the Professor’s razorsharp rhymes: “Nobody cared about care homes, they should’ve all been in their homes / Instead they were all ’round Boris’, all getting down with their Doris’.”
