Slaves to Humanity Release Upbeat New Single “I Love It” via FRAME|WORK
“I love it is this crazy fun party song. While writing it, we wanted people to wanna play this song at parties and just have a bunch of fun to it. We kept kinda pushing that while in the writing
, just to give the song a unique vibe compared to all of our other stuff! With the lyrics, I wanted a chorus that anybody could sing along with. The lyric ‘I love it’ just kinda came to me while working out all the combinations I could have that melody. Nothing really felt right in that spot, until I hit I love it. I sang that line and thought to myself, ‘what do I love?’ And I went with that question and wrote the rest of the song as a feel good party song!” says the band’s vocalist Aidan Amini.

Introducing: imfalls // New Single and Music Video “I Lost Myself” Out Now!
“‘I Lost Myself’ is essentially the story of how my mind was feeling when I moved to Los Angeles,” shares imfalls. “Every day I hear somebody talk about LA being magical or awful, but being 19 and feeling optimistic, I took a chance on the city. Unfortunately, my experience followed both sides of this spectrum with an up and down pattern. Some days being a 10/10, while other days made me question if I had belonged in the city in the first place. In the intro, I said, ‘I feel like I should be at home, but no one really wants me there.’ This was basically my mind playing games with itself and overthinking the opinions of others. I would wake up in the morning and never have a clear thought of what I was doing there. Day by day, it got worse and the derealization episodes hit me like a truck. The irony is that although I wrote a simple song about the bad series of events in LA, so many other people can find comfort and validation in their own life challenges. I think we all lose ourselves at one point, seek the problem, and let that better you.”

New Single: Oktober X “LALA”
“I made the beat for “LALA” months before I wrote any lyrics for it. The soulful vocal melody of the beat was potent, but I wanted to make sure I had a fully contemplated concept for the song’s narrative before I put words to sound. I feel that everyone is in a constant conflict between growth, and their own habits and vices. A big theme of the song is trying to mediate these conflicting desires. Everyone has vices and ways to cope with life in the short term, but everyone also needs to grow and make sacrifices for the sake of long term existence. We’re all lost in our ways to a certain extent, but we keep moving forward to find a path.” Oktober X says about his new single.

“Interbeing” is a perfect example of how PSYCHONAUT can embody their subject matter through sound and dynamics. Rather than hiding a mediocre melody behind a big climax, the trio from Mechelen first embodies the moment, before blowing it up to larger-than-life proportions.
