Evil Sweet – “Queen Victoria”

Written by Curcie and Castro, the song follows frontman O’Brien-Curcie and his infatuation with his summer fling. Based on his real-life girlfriend Victoria, the song tells the story of Scotty chasing after his childhood love who he grew up with on the north shore beaches of Long Island and getting rejected throughout adolescence before reconnecting later in life.

The Baker’s Basement “Wild Wild Sheep”

Expect each song to be pretty different. We view each one as its own personality, and we nurture them as such. Every creative decision is all about what will help a given song find its full potential and life. Some are extremely minimal, with just a couple voices and a guitar. Some are a lot more active and in your face, involving more rapid fire lyricism, driving electric guitar and drums - programed textures and percussive effects. And although some of our tunes are purely instrumental, we absolutely love words. To us, words are paint. They allow a listener to touch and feel and see. They are often illustrative and we try to pick out words that make what we’re singing about tangible and conversational. Adam Grindler / The Baker's Basement

Laurelight-“Open Your Eyes”

"Open Your Eyes" is an alt pop anthem, with singalong epic chorus, funky guitars and hook synth patterns. Written a few years ago, it's a song about finding inner light in the darkest times! First time listeners, what should you expect? Open your eyes is a song for those about to groove, so fasten your seatbelt as the 30th September is getting closer! -Laurelight

Madison Davenport “Oh Shit!”

"So I became friends with someone, we had a lot of chemistry but tried to keep things “just friends”. We spent all our time together and seriously became best friends(with an underlying air of major attraction). One day I decided to go 20-30mins out of my way to get donuts for them, and on the ride to their place I looked over at those donuts and had that wonderful/terrifying realization “Oh Shit… I really really like this person.” I got the inspiration bug and started making voice notes, and by the time I reached their house I had fully written “Oh Shit!”. Madison Davenport

The Connecting Dots “Treasures in the Valley”

Each of the 10 songs have their own part in the whole picture, and none of them copy from one another. Thus, the listener gets to hear long dreamy guitar instrumentals along with Helena's sweet voice, synth-driven ethereal soundscapes, cozy yet mysterious movie-esque tunes and rocking songs full of driving energy.

Jennifer Alvarado “Catfish”

I love fishing and have always heard how catfish can make noises to fool people into thinking it is something else. The same idea goes for a wannabe Casanova who really only cares about one night stands and adding to his pile of broken hearts. With social media, people can pretty much be anyone they want to be...whether it's real or not. Jennifer Alvardo

go4broke – “Don’t Speak”

I wrote "don't speak" during a time when I was really struggling with my anxiety. I would run myself in circles about things that weren't all that big of a deal and it just took me out of it. I felt like my anxieties were keeping me from speaking or really conveying my feelings to people around me. So I decided to write a song about it. The entire chorus was freestyled and the rest I did write before recording but the song came really quickly.
