Yawners shares new single ‘Honey’ ahead of new album
Talking about the new single, Elena said “I wrote this song in English, then in Spanish, then I forgot about it, and finally brought it back in hybrid form in both languages. It’s a love song, everyone from any corner of the world can identify with it and that’s why I like that it’s in two languages. Because the message is universal. It’s about when two people like each other but they’re playing the ‘I don’t like you game’. It’s kinda fun to play but if you play too much, you screw it up.”

Editors share first new single since 2019; Blanck Mass joins as full band member
With its pulsating electronic intensity, sweeping 80’s inspired synths and epic, driving drum pads, ‘Heart Attack’ is the perfect introduction to Editors’ new era, whilst also fitting seamlessly into the band’s songbook; its gothic sonics and Tom Smith’s brooding vocals making it instantly recognizable. “Heart Attack is a song of obsession, about losing yourself in someone, a love song, a morbid love song,” says Smith.
Genre-jumping Miami-based indie artist Julia Bhatt’s new airy folk-pop single “On My Shoulder” (off her debut album it is what it is — releasing independently on July 20) depicts the concept of having an imaginary angel on one shoulder and an imaginary devil on the other. “‘On My Shoulder’ is about two halves constantly battling about what could have been,” she says. “One is ambitious and strict, while the other is carefree and relaxed. I think a lot of people usually settle into one side or the other at different points in their lives, but they never really stop questioning each other. At least, I don’t think they should.

Social media star and autism advocate Cory Singer inspires with music video for “Break of Dawn”
Cory Singer’s latest track, “Break of Dawn,” is delightful to listen to without visuals, but the accompanying music video elevates the track to the next level. The energy of this video is just as infectious as the song it’s for, with Singer bringing a unique playfulness and sense of companionship to the track as shots cut between him singing, playing his guitar, and just hanging out on the outskirts of New York City. The video’s presentation of Singer as one of the street musicians one would expect to see everywhere in New York adds a clever layer of familiarity while also affecting an air of undiscovered musical genius just waiting to be uncovered. Overall, this video is a fun–and warm, despite the overcast sky–accompaniment to an already stellar track. Singer’s rhythm is contagious, and the listener shouldn’t mind catching it at all.

Nicotine Dolls Share “Till We Both Say” Music Video via EARMILK | New Single Out Now via All DSPS
“Our visual work is usually known to follow more of a narrative than a feeling and with this I wanted to do something else. Create and ride the vibe of those first few weeks of dating someone, that obsessive need to just love someone. It’s that feeling that never lasts but it is a central life moment whenever it happens. Then put that up and over the soundtrack in our mind which is the band playing in that white space that then has all the memories projected into it. You watch the moments happen and then get to see the internal romancing of those moments. It’s a video that makes me want to find and feel and appreciate those things and I think that should always be the goal with these kinds of songs.”
