"An unknown fact about 'Grace' is that it started as a breakup song, which is hard to believe when you listen to the final track. Early in the creative process, I was inspired to rewrite the lyrics, and the song in its current form was born - almost as if it were waiting to find itself. No shade on breakup songs (I have some of my own), but I cannot imagine what would have been missed if I had not been willing to let the song lead and trust the process." Cynthia Angelica
"My main creative intention with this body of work is to relate, to resonate and to connect with people that went through the same feeling and emotion! I would like to be the soundtrack of my audiences life, that they can always count on my music if they're going through a similar experience!" Martina
'What Would Buffy Do?' is about how understanding the contours of someone else's life, understanding their struggle to live a good life, can be really useful, even if that person is fictional! It's particularly about how these 'exemplars' are important when the stories of people in your group- in this case women - are not told very widely. B of Briz
I’d say my music is aiming to push as much experimentation as it can while still remaining in a comfortable space in their ears to keep it a unique blend between mainstream and experimental that just works. Gemïny
"Purple Dress is about a mysterious dark woman, a kind of chameleon. She doesn't care what people say or think. She waits for the right moment to set herself free and to become who she really is, whatever it costs. The rhythm of this track reminds one of a tango in order to underline the fierce sensuality and the strength of the character. Also, purple is one of my favorite color so that's why it came first to my mind when I wrote this song." - Tatiana / Divine Decadence
"Who Shot Them Down" was inspired by the book ‘Arc Road’ by Tony Tiffin, which tells the story of the tragic events that occurred in Gwinnett County, Georgia on April 17 of 1964, when three officers were shot down with their own guns by three psychopaths.
“Music is story-telling, it can be an escape, it can inspire, and it can pull you out of a dark place. The best music comes from the heart and it connects. This is the community we want to build with our fans.” — Bleeding Sun
Parallel’s self-titled EP is quite an impressive debut release, and a compellingly engaging listen throughout; at the same time that the songs on the EP convey the wistful feelings of isolation that listeners will surely relate to, their powerfully dreamy atmospheres also bring about a relaxing sense of tranquility. Highly recommended.
What makes this track unique is its originality and an almost obscene vibe of alcohol, cigarettes, and cynicism. With drunken steps, the track moves forward with a rock and roll vibe and a low end that makes the ground shake. Its attitude can be compared to a full pub at 3am where everybody is loosened up and trying to get away with everything they can.
“I had produced a tribute to Wyatt in NYC many years ago. Fred Frith, Peter Blegvad, Hugh Hopper and many others appeared. Robert gave it his official nod of support. When I moved to London to produce my first Meltdown Festival, Robert seemed the obvious choice to curate it, and from that, a lovely friendship evolved. Of course, it was daunting asking him to sing something I’d written. I know he gets a lot of proposals of which he turns down nearly all. But happily, he said yes. He said he thought he could sing this set of lyrics— and commented about the possibility of singing about his father. It was a huge relief to me.’’ Vanderwolf
