AMELIA MOORE SHARES “MOVES,” HER NEW SINGLE
After amassing over five million combined global streams with her first two singles, Amelia Moore returns with her third track, “Moves.” Her vocals glide with ease over cool, languid beats as she spins an ultra-relatable tale about making a play for the heart of someone who’s still hung up on their ex. The 21-year-old Georgia native wrote the track with Gabriella “Song Mom” Caspi, Pinkslip and Inverness.
Vulnerable new single, “Stupid,” was inspired by long distance relationships. Falling in love is such an amazing feeling, but it can fall apart when distance is involved. The artwork accompanies the song’s vibe – simple, raw, beautiful.

LOVE SICK RELEASE NEW SINGLE ‘GET WILD’
‘Get Wild’ opens with brooding R&B beats before Shaun Canning’s twisted synths and lurching bass directs push the song into the darker side of the alt-pop spectrum. Julie Knox’s topline then exudes an hypnotic allure, her vocals narrating the tale of a woman who is determinedly disinterested at the games played by her love interest. Why wallow in self-pity when you get drunk, get high, go out, and get wild?

Wallis Bird shares new song ‘The Power of a Word’
Wallis spoke about the song saying: “The Power of a Word was written around about the time that Trump got voted out, thankfully, because he had the best words. I hate even talking about the man but it was a really big turning point, it was a great release in the world. The song highlights the power that words can have, that they can be useful and dangerous.
The Power of a Word was written in about three hours, it was one of those moments when it just happens…it clicks. I had swapped my studio with my friend Kevin Ryan’s studio and before I even took my jacket off before I sat down at the table to write, I’d already written the first two verses of that song and the chorus.”

Grant Gilbert Drops Breakup Anthem “She Goes Home (Dirty Breakup Song)”
“When we wrote ‘She Goes Home’ last March, all the writers and my team knew it was a pretty awesome song. But, it wasn’t until we posted a video playing the song acoustically online that fans blew it up instantly asking for it to be released immediately. From there, we gathered a producer we knew would crush the direction of the song with Johnathan Singleton, and went into the studio to cut it as soon as we could,” Gilbert shares. “Fast forward to now, I couldn’t be more proud and excited of how the song came out. My hope is for as many people as possible going through a breakup to realize they aren’t alone in how they feel during a relationship split.”
