“Only Wanna Be With You” was recorded & produced by Joe London (Lizzo), Konstantin Kersting (Tones & I, Mallrat, Spacey Jane) and Holy Holy’s Oscar Dawson – a notable sonic shift, dictated by fresh and powerful turbo-pop. “Only Wanna Be With You” is crafted around guitar and progressions that tie back to artists like The Cure or Psychedelic Furs, without losing that quintessential Amy Shark stamp: strong pop swells and lyricism that is insatiable to the ear. It’s a track that signals a recent change in approach for Amy Shark, who has experienced a new wave of personal growth through this period of songwriting.
The upcoming EP features previous singles ‘Be There’ & ‘Where I Go’, with support for the release already confirmed across AAA Backstage, Music Feeds, Something Different, Milky, Good Call Live, The Music, Ungrained Magazine & more.
Wallace Morgan Releases New Single + Video Today
Wallace says, “I wrote “Slow Town” with my college girlfriends in mind, reminiscing on both the magic and restlessness of our days “living fast in a slow town” in Athens, Georgia while studying at UGA. Having spent the past seven years in New York City and Los Angeles with my 20s recently in the rear view, “Slow Town” is a nostalgic and upbeat reflection on being raised in the south, searching for freedom, and finding my way. It’s a celebration of female friendship, female ambition, and fun–a party anthem tinged in all the joys and pains of growing up.”
‘Good Shot’ showcases Leif’s signature intimate lyricism, delivered with a quiet confidence that is warm and gently uplifts, and sits over grounding sampled beats and a brooding soundscape. He explains that the song relays a message of introspection and hope:

RJ THOMPSON RELEASES MOST AMBITIOUS RECORD YET WITH HIGHLY ANTICIPATED THIRD ALBUM ‘YEARBOOK’
Like most of us, the artist from the North East of England spent much of the previous two years hemmed in by his own four walls. Despite being physically restricted, the headspace it granted inspired dreams, reflection and ultimately the music he would now prepare to release as his most ambitious and expansive yet. “I was stuck in a room writing songs on my piano but I was dreaming of something much bigger,” he explains of the horizon-filling sounds of the new record. “Ultimately, for the most part, we’ve all been stuck in rooms for two years, but we were dreaming of all these places we hadn’t been to for ages, all the people we hadn’t seen. Dreaming of a much bigger world outside the door is essentially what I’ve been doing with this record.”
