Dro Kenji Ducks Demons in His Dream World in “USED2KNOW” Video
In the past year, Dro Kenji has established himself as a wordsmith, a master of melodies, a star on the rise, and most recently, a world builder. His music videos feel less like a production put together to showcase a song, but rather, an opportunity to step into Dro Kenji’s universe and experience those songs in their natural habitat. After growing organically into a fan favorite since Kenji performed the track continuously on tour prior to its release on his debut album, WITH OR WITHOUT YOU, today, Dro Kenji shares the music video for project highlight, “USED2KNOW.” The track, a fast-paced foray into a painful relationship, showcases Kenji’s mellifluous melodies as he postulates how his once-open heart became a broken one.
MPress Releases Rachael Sage’s Official Video “Revelation Ground” To Accompany New Maxi-Single
“Revelation Ground” marks a turning point in Sage’s songwriting and production, merging her lifelong reverence for ’60’s-era folk – a la Leonard Cohen, Pete Seeger and Simon & Garfunkel – with a weathered, hard-won perspective on the sacredness of time itself. Amidst the landscape of the pandemic, racial protest, the loss of far too many loved ones and her own cancer experience, Sage distills bright hope and beauty from perhaps her most universal lyrics yet. With a hum-along melody that sounds like it has existed forever, he voice achieves an intimate poignancy underscored by longtime collaborator Dave Eggar’s rhapsodic cello playing.

SLAEGT RELEASES NEW SINGLE AND VIDEO “KISS FROM A KNIFE” OFF UPCOMING ALBUM ‘GODDESS’
Slaegt states about the track, “’Kiss From a Knife’ is in some ways the most aggressive and chaotic song we have written to date. But, as the vigilant ones know, a certain order can arise from chaos, if the powers within are harnessed carefully and with the right intent. The lyrics to the song deal with the union, that can occur in interactions, that initially look separating rather than uniting. This might seem like a paradox, but sometimes, the greatest truths in life are found in the biggest contradictions.”
