“It was a pleasure collaborating with Sarah on our new single “Cryptonite,” says ASHBA. “We had a crazy idea to write a song around falling in love in the metaverse and losing all concept of reality. More now than ever, people are creating their perfect digital life online while neglecting their real lives. So we thought it would be interesting to put that into a song.” Adds Sarah, “we ended up writing a tragic love story based in the metaverse. When you can be anybody you want, and create a perfect world around you, then you suddenly have everything to lose. At some point you have to wake back up and face reality.”

today Melissa Marchese shares Motown inspired protest video single “Sirens”
“Sirens” reflects on climate change and how deprioritized this existential threat is. Marchese expresses the human experience that we all share and the importance of our only home.
“The wrath we are already beginning to experience from humans’ destruction of the planet does not discriminate, and we should wake up and do something while we still can.”
“It’s impossible to look around the world today and not wonder where it’s all going,” Jones admits. “It’s a cynical thought, but one that we all have to seriously consider— ‘Will I see tomorrow?’ That question is the inspiration behind this song. If you were placed on your deathbed in this moment, would you be happy about the life you’ve lived? Would you have regrets? The human experience is one that shouldn’t be taken for granted. We can’t control the cards that we are dealt or the actions of others, but we can choose to be present and live for the moments we have right now. Because once it’s all gone, it’s gone. How will the world remember you?”
