LIVING HOUR’S NEW LP OUT FRIDAY, SHARES VIDEO FOR “MIDDLE NAME”
A shimmering synth and guitar bop, “Stay Still” adopts a Robyn-esque approach to the contrary emotions. Govan flexes the two parts of “Stay Still” into one. A neon-tinged banger and a track about feeling isolated and insignificant, she melds each emotion into one energetic electro-tinged anxiety anthem that examines the overstimulation experienced in the digital age. Reflecting the humanistic approach to songwriting that has become her signature, Govan is purposeful in the messaging of “Stay Still,” offering a simple reminder that self-care is never selfish and is a gift we can only receive from ourselves.

FORREST ISN’T DEAD Releases New Singles “Heaven” and “Earth” With Two-Part Video Series
“‘Heaven’ is the first song I made for the album. To me, this song represents the overarching theme of the album better than any other tracks,” shares Forrest. “I wrote ‘Earth’ around the time my grandfather passed away. I drew a lot of inspiration from that experience when writing this song. While these two songs were not initially intended as a part 1 and part 2 when writing them, we had a lot of fun connecting the dots between them and feel they ended up going together nicely. We shot both videos in the same location over one weekend to give them a similar feel. For ‘Heaven,’ we wanted to try and capture what the moments during your ascension into the next life might be like. And for ‘Earth,’ we wanted to capture the moments just before your ascension. That said, neither video follows a strict storyline. We wanted to keep the concepts more artistic and vague to let each person draw their own conclusion of what may be going on. Afterall, no one really know what these moments will actually be like.”

Youth in a Roman Field Shares New Single “Nightswims” via BPM | Read More in Luna Collective & Folk N Rock
Introducing your new favorite surrealist folk outfit: Youth in a Roman Field. The project was spearheaded by multi-instrumentalist, artist, writer, and activist Claire Wellin, known for being a full-time member of the Brooklyn-based indie rock powerhouse San Fermin and her time touring with Delta Rae and Once The Musical. Youth In a Roman Field showcases Wellin’s knack for writing inventive, dynamic melodies and string arrangements that tell a story. In her latest offering, we find a woman sifting through family trauma and anger towards those who have preceded her, struggling for intimacy in a digitized age, frustrated with the state of American life on a wider scale too. Musically, Youth In a Roman Field feels like if Anais Mitchell collaborated with Andrew Bird. Insightful, razor-sharp, and wildly inventive, the project channels heartbreak and rage through a hopeful lens. It feels disarmingly genuine.

Fiona Brice Shares New Single + Music Video For “Through Her Eyes” Via Bella Union
Commenting on the track and video, Brice says: “I wanted to write about seeing the world from someone else’s perspective. It’s about trying to build empathy, removing yourself from the center. I have sponsored several women through the charity Women to Women International, and the initial idea for the song came from the brief connection I had with them. For the video, I decided to ask many of the wonderful creative women I have working relationships with to contribute a short video of themselves in a place where they felt content, and then combined everything with images of myself as a very young child and then again in my early 20s, remembering how I felt back then, who I was, and linking it with where I am today.” Click HERE to watch.

Celebrate end of summer with MuMu’s “Honeymoon Sex”

IRFXXN combines with acclaimed producers Sheph.ART & Barry Saleh for immaculate RnPop debut single ‘Latest Song’.
“This song from beginning to end was a whole creative unleash. Everything from the lyrics to the drums was a “do as you wish and be free to express”. Be raw, be vocal, be honest. There was no room for timidness, unease or worry. All about being who we are and expressing our sound in a creative and relatable way.” IRFXXN
Little Guilt evokes a gentle contentment of the meandering through life – reminiscent of springtime bees lazily bumbling through buttercups. Wrapped up in utterly tender lyrics and delightful sonics, their latest single ‘Nowhere’ is a triumph.
