The songs on Tenant were already rock solid in their quality and production, but this new version is good enough to stand on its own. And interesting enough to keep us on our toes regarding the rest of the reworks that are in the way.
Between verses such as "You've been running for too long" and "You just gotta hang on", the dreamy and ethereal single is about strength. When the world feels like collapsing around you, this song is about finding your own inner strength in the smallest things and knowing that you don't have to face anything alone.
Ainsley Costello is a smart songwriter, and she knows her alternative rock like the back of her hand. She goes from Paramore to Veruca Salt in a matter of seconds, and it just proves that this girl knows exactly what she is doing and that she definitely is the real deal. Ainsley Costello can do anything, and we're lucky to go along on her ride.
"Social Media Masterpiece" is definitely a softer track than "The Festival", the production of "Social Media Masterpiece" does a wonderful job of highlighting the story being told instead of trying to steal your focus.
Monroe Moon has already shown us that they can do pretty much anything with their experimental vein of indie pop. The duo's special strength is in coming up with an exquisite balance between a straightforward dream pop song and a weird Radiohead-Kid-A-like knack for experimenting and trying new things.
Mental health is important, and 7000apart know that. The duo is making music that originates in dark places, but always moving forward and hoping it will be better. Hope alone won't cut it, you have to put in the work - and these two are doing exactly that.
""I’m Sure" was originally written some time ago purely acoustically - I picked it up again recently and decided to start experimenting with some electric guitar licks over the top. The song started to take on a new sound and so I started recording!" Ayrton Jimenez
Her music falls somewhere between Björk's Medúlla and FKA twigs' LP1 with a dash of Fiona Apple just for the hell of it. Needless to say, her sounds are incredible and captivate the listener like few other artists are capable of doing.
"As a woman with Endometriosis, I believe that my diseased genes go all the way back to the 19th century, when women were locked up and institutionalized for being women, and further back to the days when wise women were killed for being witches. I've learned to internalize this pain; this song is a reminder to set myself free." - Shyli Madhala
