NAUT Reveals New Song + Music Video for “Dissent”

NAUT comments, “The singles we have selected demonstrate different facets of the band and ‘Dissent’ is a perfect track to highlight certain things we think are key to NAUT’s sound. ‘Dissent’ is ‘Hunt”s opener and one of its ‘heaviest’ offerings, thematically and musically. The video is stark and works as a lyric video of sorts, where key words and phrases are splashed up on screen like a dissenting voice speaking its truth, daubed across a bleak corporate wall.”

Sahffi Lynne Debuts Eclectic New Video for “Let the Healing Begin”

“Let the Healing Begin” speaks on the medicine of music. The song came to Saffhi while on a solo spiritual medicine retreat (called a “Dieta”) in Peru. “I often hear music in the wind, the trees, or the babbling of a stream, yet I’ve never had a song come through in this way. I woke up one morning with a voice telling me to get my pen and paper, I remember watching my hand as I was half asleep, it was writing on its own!” shares Sahffi. “Then I felt the strong sense to pick up my guitar, and as I read the words, the melody and chords just poured out of me. It was a message for me at this moment, I was quite lost in my life and this message filled me with such hope and love. I cried tears of gratitude and release! As I’ve shared the song, this song seems to speak to people in a powerful way, opening and connecting hearts in special and deep ways. Often people’s response is to cry! I am grateful to share the medicine of music!”


In speaking about “AVO TOAST,” Clinton says: “What’s funny is that I’ve always hated avocado toast. I wasn’t sure if I’d release this song because it didn’t feel like me for a while. But people kept begging for it and I have a toxic relationship with peer pressure, so I sat with it and fell in love…with the song (not the food). I’m excited for the world to have this one and can’t wait to release the rest of my new music.”
