3REE & Kellin Quinn ‘Set This Place On Fire’ with new single out now
The high energy rock track tackles the pressures of 2022 and the increasing strains on identity, belonging and on longevity of life on the planet. ‘Set This Place On Fire’ finds 3REE bringing their pop laced hooks with hardcore beatdowns to compliment the signature alt-metal screaming from Sleeping With Sirens’ Kellin Quinn.
Rising dance talent Henry Daniel has unveiled his new single ‘Shake That’, out today via Cool FM & BBC Radio 1 DJ Connor Coates’ new label Lift Me Up Records.
A club-ready tech house bomb, ‘Shake That’ combines a bumpin’ bassline and slick grooves with the most infectious of vocal samples. The debut single on Lift Me Up, it is the first in a series of tracks the label plans to release. With its founding mission to put amazing dance music in front of people – from crossover dance records to club focused tracks – Lift Me Up will be a positive place for like-minded individuals to come together and collaborate.
‘Forwards and Backwards’, Tayo Sound’s second single of the year after his collaboration with Oscar Scheller on ‘Two Left Feet’, pushes the young talent even further with joyful and optimistic melodies overlaid with lyrics pondering the breakdown of a relationship; “‘Forwards and Backwards’ is about an unhealthy relationship that kinda feels like a tug of war. Melodically it’s very Jon Bellion inspired. Finn Keane (Charli XCX) wrote the guitar part, Frances (Dua Lipa, Holly Humberstone) the hook and then I had the verse melody and the rest came together really quickly. I wanted it to feel bouncy but lyrically really sad, which is kind of the whole point of the song, a constant battle between the good and the bad of a breaking relationship.”
On Get Down, producer Matt Corby’s sparkling, glitched-out synths give way to one of Conversations’ most affecting songs, a sleek jam whose ebb-and-flow melody underscores lyrics about anxiously forging forward through one’s youth. “Get Down is about the idea that I’ve come so far now, I have to keep going, it’s too late to stop what I’m doing now,” Budjerah says. “If there’s a way, please show me how,” he sings on the track, a spiritual plea amidst a song suffused with an ultramodern atmosphere. “That song took a while to figure out, just because it was so different compared to what we’ve done before – but then, like one day, I think it just clicked.”
AARON RAITIERE SHARES NEW SONG “SINGLE WIDE DREAMER” – WATCH THE VIDEO HERE
Raitiere explains, “‘A single wide dreamer in a double wide world’ – This wound up being a character who folks relate to because most people know this person. When this song was written, my house had just burned down and I was crashing at my friend Jon’s trailer in Pleasantview, TN. He wrote a song inspired by me one morning- and I wrote one inspired by him. The result was a combination of the two songs and a memorable character that has followed me around since.”

Rising Nashville Singer-Songwriter, Gabrielle Metz Releases Haunting New Single “Masks”
In our society we all were socially distant long before we were forced to be physically distant in 2020. All of the sudden the minimal face-to-face interactions were also taken away and online was the only remaining form of communication. Growing up during the cusp of Generation Z, most conversations were held through texts, snapchat, and social media. Easily superficial, with only the goal of sharing the ‘highlight reel.’ “Some of my first lessons growing up were in the Art of Conversation. Gatherings with friends and family were filled with storytelling and laughter. My inspiration for this song is to bring back that art of communication and community.” – Gabrielle Metz
