Have You “Seen” SCATTERED STORM’s New Music Video
“This was a very complex song to write vocals to. Because it has many changes. Many ups and downs. Overall it is a very dark song. Its slow riffs and rhythms make it feel like you are in Darth Vader’s home. We used a lot of Star Wars references in this song. Yoda’s teachings. The evolution of being good but then going to a dark place. Fear is the path we yell. As Fear leads to anger, anger leads to pain, and pain leads to suffering. All indications that you are pretty much heading to a dark place.” adds drummer Jay Arriaga.
“Wild,” the album’s title track, is an organic and airy piece of folk pop which reflects on children’s sense of abandon and the freedom which Pike has found within herself. It’s a song about taking the time to reflect and really trust in oneself.
“‘over overthinking’ is a diary of sorts. It is a look behind the curtain to some of my introspective thoughts,” admits Eva Grace. “Being painfully self aware is a full time job. I hope this song reaches the overthinkers of the world and can make them feel understood.”

CEO Trayle and FastMoney Ant Cross Police Lines in “Nightmares & Dreams” Video
“444” was inspired by the early stages of falling passionately in love with someone. Lucid wanted to create a song that matched that excitement and energy. With lyrics, “making love with pure passion, your touch awoke something in me…” and “in you I get lost, I think this is love?…I don’t know!” and a beat mimicking the feeling of your heart racing, she accomplished that sensation. Lucid speaks on these early stages as, “being in that space where you both haven’t talked about your feelings to each other yet, and you feel it’s there, but you can’t be totally sure due to lack of clarity.”

Quadeca Released His New Album Six Hours Early on YouTube
The 15-track juggernaut kaleidoscopically spins together hip-hop, Latin, R&B, electronic, trap, and more into a larger-than-life vision of what pop can be in the 21st century without boundaries or borders. From the jump, uncontainable energy surges through this bold body of work. “MUEVELO” [feat. Anuel AA & Marshall Jefferson] glides along on bright keys and big handclaps offset by robotic transmissions, a command to “Move your body,” and a promise “We stay lit forever.” Elsewhere, “Dance 4 U” hinges on a slick bass line and punchy groove. The sample on “Jump” predicts the reaction perfectly, “Somebody said when you play this song all the girls will go loca.” The kinetic stomp of “Firestarter” leaves flames in the wake of its incendiary vocals. The group shine brighter than ever.

She adds, “‘Good For Me’ is about my journey with self-love and how it took me loving and losing someone else to see that I need to find my worth within myself. The song taught me that you can’t feel joy without feeling pain too and that love isn’t linear.”
