Speaking on the single, Paravi says, “”Broken English” is about growing up as a child of immigrants and watching the gut-wrenching reality of how immigrants are treated in this world come to fruition from an age that should be too young for that. It’s watching their accent get heckled, it’s seeing them being treated as “dumb”, knowing that their counterparts are getting promoted instead of them because they are “easier to understand”. It’s about every excuse that this version of America can sometimes make in an effort to ensure that no immigrant feels at home or accepted. But the thing is, this is still their home. That’s what this story is about. Regardless, this is still your home.”
Grammy-nominated Musician: Black girl maturation new single
“What good is freedom if you don’t really feel free? Black girlhood maturation brings a range of evocative contradictory experiences,” confides Hoyes, and “in ‘Mood (Liberation Walk)’ we express the sudden sensation of a girl jumping/jumped into puberty, roped into a new emotional reality, physicality and societal positionality. As explored in the music video, she jumps through the portals of her own design right until the street lights flicker. Jumping is tied to shared childhood experiences, embodies connectivity and the chasmic leaps of growth in the Black womanly experience.” The music video is directed by Candice Hoyes who is a mixed media artist.

The song’s raunchy lyrics are coated by sugary vocals and infectious guitar lines, crafted to get stuck in your head.

Psycho Hill Premieres “Memories” at Outburn Today
“‘Memories’ is a song that I’ve been wanting to write ever since my grandfather passed in 2017. He was a really big inspiration to me growing up, living in the same house as him my whole life.
He was truly a second father to me & the song speaks volumes on my memories throughout the good & the bad. Just how I wanted to be like him and reflecting back on memories that will never be forgotten.” – Johnny Iadevaio
Outburn writes “Psycho Hill have found the perfect symbiotic combination to take 2023 by the THROAT!!!”

Sawyer Fredericks to Release New EP, The Golden Tree, on February 24, 2023
The songs explore themes of toxic masculinity, the danger of comparison, and an autobiographical song that touches on the beauty and struggle of growing up on a farm. Written in Sawyer’s “free-range folk” style, the addition of dobro and strings adds a deeper emotional resonance to his acoustic sound.
“It’s exciting to work with talented people outside the strict structure of a band,” says bassist/singer James Searl of Giant Panda Guerilla Dub Squad (GPGDS). That statement rang true during the creation of their diverse new album Love In Time, which comes out April 7th via Easy Star Records. Influenced by the need for more social and personal connection during the pandemic, GPGDS wanted to lean into the “squad” in their name by working and collaborating with artists outside of their tight knit circle. Their powerful first single “Chants” exemplifies the approach with the help of legendary vocalist Clinton Fearon (of Gladiators fame) and Ghanaian atenteben player Dela Botri.
