ÁMBAR LUNA Releases Her New Single “AÚN ME QUEDA FE” With LEE EYE
Ámbar Luna has joined forces with Colombian artist Lee Eye, and together they’re invading the scene with the single “Aún Me Queda Fe,” which is available now on digital platforms. The production process for this song began in Chile, while the recording was completed in the city of Medellín, set in the Comuna 13 neighborhood and with the weight of social realities that it brings with it.
This single represents what it is to live in instability and at the same time maintain an optimistic view of being able to fulfill dreams, without anything or anyone shooting down that conviction. The song, unlike the majority of urban music today, reflects a more positive view of what it means to come from a barrio, which really distinguishes these two artists because they understand and bring to sounds the rawness that is experienced in the underworld.

Shoegazers Father/Son NYTE SKYE Reflect On Distant Memories In “Take Me Up Again.” New Album ‘Vanishing’ Out 1/10
When writing “Take Me Up Again,” connecting the pieces instrumentally was a process of trial and error. “It first started as a very simple electronic song, kind of like a stripped-down old Cure song. We experimented a lot with different sounds. Skye (Nyle’s Son) had found a vintage marching drum at a thrift store; turns out it was a 1930’s Ludwig. We found some missing parts and hardware online and we were able to refurbish it. It had a deep, long decay and tons of overtones. We also used a broken China cymbal on the choruses, referencing a bit from the song ‘Destination Unknown’ by Missing Persons and Terry Bozzio’s awesome drumming on that. This loud trashy banging, gives the choruses a signature sound and it just seemed to work,” describes Nyles.

New Music Out Today – Animai -No Enemy
Animai said: “When I composed the track, I was thinking about my own mental health and how we can all be triggered into acting/reacting in ways to protect ourselves. It’s often behaviours we learnt when we were younger; our brain recalls a similar situation and reacts on autopilot. Self-awareness brings a realisation that there is no *enemy*, instead, only pain, and the parts within us that we cleverly developed to protect ourselves from remembering that pain. The song is about witnessing the body react, and then implementing tools to come back into the present moment.”
