Female Rising Stars

Kaisa Rya “Rough”

“I still remember the first time I worked on “Rough”. I was on the train to Munich for an acting job and I thought of my boyfriend and how nice it would be to be together now and that it doesn’t matter how – as long as I feel his touch. Kaysa Rya

Only Bodies – “Only Bodies” EP

“Hey there! Thanks for checking out Only Bodies. We hope you’ll go on a journey with our self-titled EP as it explores the difficulties that come with the emotional growing pains inherent to love. Our music aims to balance sincerity and honesty with thoughtfulness and tact. Also, to make you wiggle your booty.” – Only Bodies

#NEWmusicAlert- Leanna Oki’s latest single

Healing must first begin with feeling the feels. Leanna Oki is niched in this particular genre of music. It’s not so much about what the subject matter is, as much as it is about “you aren’t in this alone.” Oki’s approach to artistic expression in this manner is what connects her so closely with her audience.

Britny Lobas – “Hollow”

From start to finish, the song carries us under its Bluesy wing, as Britny softly begins to tell her story. Moving forward, the frustration in the artist’s voice becomes more and more apparent, until it finishes to explode in a last chorus of wailing cries, proper of a banshee. Original and familiar, this tune stands out thanks to its rock and roll eloquence, and its humane imperfections.

Kit Citrine “Midnight Masquerade”

Kit Citrine’s new album “Midnight Masquerade” is an autobiographical release looking into the artist’s life events from the past 2 years. Home to 15 songs and running for 45 minutes, the album covers a variety of highly relevant themes.

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

ELJURI – “REFLEXIÓN” ALBUM

“You are welcome to dive into my heavy Latin grooves from rock and reggae to funk and dance.
Get lost in the intersecting sounds. I wrote this new album, ‘Reflexión’ as an antidote to our
recent shared experience of inconceivable isolation. The melodies will lift your internal vibration
towards positive energy,” – Eljuri.

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.

Aurelia “Sinister Things”

Cinematic with twirling plucks in the dark atmosphere, there’s some truly moody bass, which are still no match to the emotionally heavy vocals of Aurelia. Bold and fearless in nature, her pop voice also carries operatic elements running through the song to further heighten the feelings of pain, revelation and ultimately freedom, especially in the climax of the song.

AINSLEY COSTELLO – “TYPE”

“As silly as it sounds, this song is actually based on a true story. For some reason there have been more boys that fit this description around me than you’d guess, but if you know me, you know that none of them have been romantic relationships with me. But this universal idea of “the type” (whether we have one or not) was so fascinating that I knew I had to write a totally sassy pop banger about it. Type is a light and funny take on staying true to yourself, what you like, and being confident about it along the way.” Ainsley Costello

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

Paraphon “Anecdotes of Wired Minds”

“We‘ve recorded the album over the last year in our home studio. We‘ve done everything completely diy from songwriting and production to the design of the artwork and all the music videos for the singles. On the release day we’ll have a release show for the record in our hometown St. Gallen.”

Yana “Funeral of Life”

“Funeral of Life” is the third and final single coming from Yana this year. This and the previous two songs will be part of Yana’s upcoming debut album called “Journey of the Soul”, set to release soon.

Sharl “City Lights”

There are deep looks into the upsides and failures of relationships and dating, thoughtful and rebellious songs about societal problems experienced as a woman, as well as stories stemming from her experiences connected to her past record label deal, and many more.

Virginia Marcs – “This Time”

” ‘This Time’ could have stayed in that dark space easily, but then I was like: No, this is not where I am anymore, this emotional space of despair and resentment. I’m ready to move forward. I wanna take it back. So, the song is very snarky and irreverent. It’s got one eyebrow raised the whole time; it’s got its sassy pants on. Then it’s triumphant, like … this is it, this is my time, my body, my heart, my life. And nothing anyone can do or say can take that away from me!” -Virginia Marcs

Benedicta Syran “Let Me Be”

As the name suggests, “Let Me Be” is a brave-chested song that seeks to push aside all those that try to steer it off the path and bend to their will.

Alba James- Bedroom Walls

Bedroom Walls by Alba James is a short EP with a wide arrange of ideas and emotions. An exploration of intimacy, depression and derealization with a touch of experimentation. Alba James creates a special soundscape that explores, making us think of a physical manifestation of the emotions she explores in the album that takes the shape of a bedroom in our minds, a flow of consciousness rarely seen in music.

Moon and Aries “Break The Matrix (Episode One)”

The duo’s new plan is about as otherworldly – seeking to overcome the Old World, Moon and Aries is set to bring forth the New World, and the first part to come from the process of building that is their new EP “Break The Matrix (Episode One)”.

Eve Whelan “Wasted Youth”

Eve’s newest single was born last year, when she left home to begin college. Getting further and further depressed by being far from home and outside of the city, as well as covid restrictions that minimized all social events to a zero, the then-17-year-old woman felt like she’s unable to experience things as a youthful person away from home. So, she wrote “Wasted Youth” as a way to express all those frustrating thoughts.

Randy Beth “Kaleidoscope”

“Kaleidoscope is a hopeful pop / r&b track that sets the scene of a first date. it opens with the sounds of light giggles and exciting energy. throughout the track you can feel the hesitancy from a person who has spent a long time hiding from her own light, only to find it reflected through the eyes of someone else.”
Randy Beth

Dionne Sturdy-Clow “No Way”

“Well, bad break up arguments with no resolution and poor mental health!….wit no prospect of comfort I made my own and stayed under the duvet…..I think if you’re lucky enough to own a bed, you have probably done something similar!….” Dionne Stury-Clow

Xoe-B “Valentine (You Can’t Have Me)”

“I started writing Valentine (You Can’t Have Me) around Christmas time after the big family get together, was being pestered about “have you got a boyfriend yet” and “you need to hurry up get married and have kids, no one is getting any younger” and honestly, it’s THE MOST FRUSTRATING conversation ever! I’ve been hurt a few too many times and needed time to heal but no one seems to understand that so I put all my frustrations into this track.” Xoe-B

DOLL RIOT – “GET A LIFE”

The story behind “Get a Life” is simple. The girlfriend of and ex-boyfriend began stalking one of the girls in social media. Absolutely mental, unhealthy, and in deed very childish behavior. Doll Riot weren’t fucking with that, so they wrote a track to kindly tell the little shit to fuck off, smoke some grass, and don’t be an ass!

Merunisa “Henny n’ Ice”

“With my music, they should expect the unexpected. I always want my listeners to be surprised and to enjoy the melodic writing and production which is something Henny n’ Ice has done very well” Merunisa

Maria Weissman – “Bad”

“You can feel broken and bad and that’s okay. It’s not a fatal flaw. Hopefully, you heal from it and come out stronger, better, and with a depth that’s beautiful in and of itself.” – Maria Weissman

Sharl- “I Fell In Love”

“I Fell In Love” may seem initiallly a dark track, mainly due to its themes and atmosphere. A trap pop, synth heavy harmonic section captures its essence as Sharl sings her recount of an abusive relationship. But not everything is hopeless…

Gillian Rae Perry “Gillgil”

The album, home to 10 songs and running for 40 minutes in total, became the vessel of self-understanding to the point of helping the artist feel like “I loved myself for the first time in my life”. And thus, the release is overall soft as a pile of pillows, but with heavy lyrics, particularly at the beginning where she unravels the hardships of living, not knowing you have a condition as you’re just trying to get started with the day.

A.B. Violet “Cold, Cold Heart”

Sounding like a massive dome of heavy emotions, there is no escape other than letting it all flow through you, living out out to the cathartic speedy rhythm and reverberant voices.

Indoor Friends – “Finally Enough”

“Finally Enough” to me is like a letter wrote to someone you once admired, but he/she just didn’t care or show interest. This of course can make anybody mad, even angry. In this case, Indoor Friends channeled all that frustration and anger and turned it into a “fuck you, luck at me now” song. Guess what, it fucking rocks.

Wild Fire – “Don’t Mess With Exes”

The song is such a banger, and something that a lot of us can relate to. Especially young girls who are beginning to find solace in Wild Fire’s music. A wonderful blend of Pop Rock and Country that definitely feels fresh and opens up the gates for this fiery sisters.

Kit Citrine “Hollow”

“In addition to writing the song overnight after getting back into town from her dad’s funeral, Kit took a different approach to writing this song than any of the other songs on her debut album. She had no hard plan in mind for lyrics, or even an overall concept, except that she wanted to create something that sounded the way she felt inside in that moment. It was a way of acknowledging her pain, processing it, and channeling it into music.” Kit Citrine

Becca Starr “Speak No Evil”

“Overall, Speak No Evil is an exploration through the peaks and troughs of what makes me tick, makes me think and makes me suffer. It’s groovy for a reason, no matter how crazy the world gets, it’s still beautiful. It’s still groovy. And the same should be said for every human life. Accepting the beauty and growth to be gained through adversity and pain, sometimes makes you a happier, healthier and stronger individual and ultimately, of more use and resource to others who may be suffering. Or struggling.” Becca Starr

Romi Hurts “I Found You”

“I went deep, faced my dark sides. I desperately wanted to break certain patterns, wanted to grow, learn and heal, so I could experience a new kind of love relationship.” Romi Hurts

Chloey Rose “Golden Sun”

“I hope the listeners feel uplifted by the song. I really hope they become the best version of themselves and who they aspire to be. The song is about having self-belief in what you can achieve, and if you are brave and keep trying to realise your dreams. I am hoping the lyrics will tell the listeners not to be afraid to step out of their fears which might hold them back and walk forward stepping out ‘into the Golden Sun’. I feel the song signifies hope and change and I can imagine listeners enjoying this track whilst on holiday, just chilling or on a road trip.” Chloey Rose

ANASTASIA ELLIOT – “MASQUERADE”

“Whether in relationships, friendships or in our current social media, celebrity and influencer culture. We are always navigating the “masquerade” of the world and trying to figure out what is real and what is fake. This song is an anthemic call for realness and owning our true selves. Nothing is “too much” when it comes to being who you truly are.” – Anastasia Elliot

Sophie Dorsten “Mountain Song”

“‘Mountain Song’ is about wanting to be with someone you can’t; someone that was so close to you. They left you abruptly, with no explanation and the memories of all the good times you spent together now leave you feeling empty. Holding on to all those memories, you now must somehow heal without getting a “goodbye” or closure. Sophie Dorsten

PETIT MOND. – “BLUEBERRY CLOUDS”

“I wrote this song for my graduation in high school. I suddenly realized that our chill hangouts with our group of friends weren’t gonna be a weekly thing anymore, we were about to move around the world for our studies, we were growing up. So this song is about all the good memories we made, remembering our youth and moving on to our adult life. The first chorus says “we are young” and the second one says “we were young” because during the song we grew up.” – Petit Mond.

THE MARGARET HOOLIGANS – “PETE AND ROGER”

“Basically, when I met Strontium, we were just friends but I liked him instantly. I was with another fella at the time, but I wanted to impress Strontium and I found out he liked The Who. So I bought a compilation CD of theirs to listen to and then eventually started seeking out full albums. When I was no longer with the other guy, I sent Strontium love notes with obscure Who lyrics to woo him.” Meg

UNDER DELUSION – “OVER THE RAINBOW”

“Over The Rainbow” was written in loving memory of Under Delusion’s friend and talented musician Maxx Verkhovski. Maxx worked with them in a studio when they recorded demos of Fairy, Pain and other songs of their debut album. “We had a great conversation about music, artists and music-making just a day before he passed away”, the band explains.

Lauryn Marie “Happy Songs”

“When you listen to my music, you should expect lots of harmonies, a mix of genres, and lyrics that will make you feel things.” Lauryn Marie

Bridget Kelly Quinn “Please Stay”

“The song “Please Stay” was written with someone in mind who is struggling and I’m telling them its ok and I see you and hear you even when your silent. We all need someone to talk to and I want people to know that your not alone.” Bridget Kelly Queen

HANNAH DORMAN – “222” EP

Hannah is ready to let us hear what she’s been crafting in “222”. Let me tell you guys, it’s pretty catchy and explosive, really well produced, and with lots and lots of melodies that will stick into your heads.

Chelsea Valentine “Wire”

“I like to write about all things love and relationships. While this track is 80s pop goodness, I like to experiment with different sounds. I think I always want to keep my listeners guessing as to what I might do next. And that’s what I love about music! You can listen to and love all different types of music, artist and sounds. Music can be whatever you need or what it to be.” Chelsea Valentine

Allee & Pom Poms – “Boots” ft Liv Slingerland

“I started writing this song in the summer of 2021 as things were re-opening and also still burning down. I was in a mood to SHOP and I hit up my friend, PomPoms and was like “I think this track has a you vibe, what do you think???” – Allee

Ainsley Costello “Someone’s Someone”

“For women, putting ourselves first has been a generations long problem. Sure, it’s improved, but I still think society has a strong tendency of shaming young girls into thinking that the best thing they can be is someone’s girlfriend or significant other. I know the struggle, people always want to know if I have a boyfriend or girlfriend. But why is that?” Ainsley Costello

Cynthia Angelica “Grace”

“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

MONROE MOON – “NEW UTOPIA”

“New Utopia” It is an absolutely brilliant track, atmospheric, evolving, and with a certain mysticism behind it. Almost with a trip-hop attitude, this song feels fresh, original, and very addictive.

Jasmine Ash “We’ll Sing Again”

“We’ll Sing Again”, the single is a perfect magical Disney-esque pop song full of air and melodies featuring the artist’s satin soft vocals. Co-written and produced with Jasmine’s husband, the song sports a huge blast of positive feelings, starting from those warm floaty synths that begin the song all the way to the banging chorus that bursts of energy.

Rosin O’Hagan- “Wild & Free”

“I wrote ‘Wild & Free’ with the aim of capturing the feelings and fears that come in the early stages of newfound romance, and the moment that you ultimately make the decision to dive into the deep end. When you find yourself in the wake of something new, but others have opinions on it, you have to make a choice; to let other people’s outside noise hold you back from something that could be amazing, or to put yourself first and go for it”. Roisin O’Hagan

Adri-Anne Ralph “Follow You Anywhere”

“I love to write music that makes you feel something, and I love writing songs that stick in your head! I started out in music playing piano and writing songs for myself to sing, inspired by 90’s R&B, jazz and gospel music. In my songwriting my goal is to make good music that doesn’t have to conform to trends. I’m a vocalist, first and foremost, and my favorite part of the process is the singing, of course! I try to use my voice as an instrument to convey the most emotion that I can, and to bring joy into the process of creating and performing.” Adri-Anne Ralph

Tamara Jenna – “Esmeralda”

Tamara Jenna is a Birmingham born Alternative R&B/Rap artist who likes to address issues like mental health, love, and loss; as she did in her debut album ‘Pleasure From Pain”. Now, the singer is back with a brand new track that offers a POV from Victor Hugo’s character, the Hunchback, speaking of how the beautiful Esmeralda made him feel when he was used to being abused and feared.

JYLHÄ- “Queen Bee”

JYLHÄ means wild in the context of nature. It is the artistic name of 15 year old talent Liina-Maija Jylhä, based on Petäjävesi, Finland. Her music are pop tracks with elements of folk inspired by the likes of Taylor Swift, Phoebe Bridgers and Joni Mitchell.

Maria Weissman “Kill a Ghost”

The song, “Kill a Ghost” is one of the most energetic and motivational songs I’ve heard coming from such a hard place. Instead of being in the grips of all terror, the artist has flipped the script around and taken on an empowering route to defeat the ghosts from the past, and she’s doing it with powerful spoken-sung vocals, banging percussion and splendid harmonies loading positivity in the quest.

7000apart “No is a Nice Word”

The mastermind behind this single is an international duo called 7000apart. Combining freshest pop sounds akin to Billie Eilish with the blooming pop music era of 2000s, the duo creates some enormously catchy tunes with a distinct feeling of a pop hit that was released a while ago, but still feels so good to this day.

Norrisette – “Wild Being”

“The message is that I want everyone to be free to live the life they deserve, like a wild creature who doesn’t have to prove their worth. It is also a release of energy to try and find some fun and joy despite all the hard times we are going through in the world!” – Norrisette

Cielo Pordomingo “Wake Up”

“Wake Up is an invitation to get up and move on, keep walking, even if everything seems to be falling apart. To continue creating and carrying out your projects, even though everything seems against you. It is an invitation to continue dancing together until you fly.” Cielo Pordomingo

Cécile Naïla- Rosa Illumina

“The rose is for her a master plant, a teacher plant. It is a very high and very subtle vibration, which will act as a channel for the great Mother. This universal Love energy that comes to embrace unconditionally, and will bring us to the source of what calls to be transformed and healed within us. The rose awakens the power of love in our heart.” Cécile Naïla

A.B. Violet “Check Your Feelings”

Check Your Feelings was written as a way to check in with myself when I was feeling overwhelmed with everyday life. Literally to remind to myself to stop and take a breath, before things got too much. I know we can all feel this way sometimes. For me, as for many others, it’s an important part of mental health management and we sometimes need reminding to take a step back from the rush of everyday life and check in with ourselves- and others!” A.B. Violet

Kaiyah Mercedes “New Year’s Resolutions”

“My songs are almost always sad. I write about sadness in every way I can, from folk songs, to soft rock, to pop, and then to ballads like this one. There is so much to be said about heartbreak and mental health struggles and sadness, and I hope my songs can give other young, sad teenagers something to relate to.” Kaiyah Mercedes

Faae “Summer Song”

“I wrote ‘summer song’ while driving from Florida to Wyoming last summer. It’s an honest reaction and subsequent dissociative folk/jazz/prog track about feeling disconnected from the world around you as things completely out of your control are changing the places you used to know. It’s primarily focused on climate change.” Faae

HVIRESS – “NO EXIT”

Beginning with a sinister intro of distorted guitars and hellish synths that give you the chills, the track immediately lays the foundations of the chaos that’s about to come. Mishkin opens the first verse with her melodious, yet menacing voice, later joined by Hana in the chorus. The instrumentation gives the sensation of being in a dark opera, that slowly builds up into an explosion of drums, guitars and screaming vocals.

She’s Mine – “Out My Shell”

“I wrote the chorus first, then the beat and then the narrative verses about being an alien coming down to Earth and trying to fit in. I was really into Doja Cat and beat making at the time so naturally this song took on a trap feel.” – She’s Mine

Extreme Tropical Heat: “Fire” by Hannah Dorman

Last year I said 2022 is going to be music, music, music, and so far it definitely has been, just no one’s hearing any of it yet! I feel like I’m making up for lost time! Keep an eye out for some collaborations too, something I’ve never done with original music, but I’m so excited for the second half of the year and what’s to come! Hannah Dorman

Rena Hart “Ride or Die”

“The opening lyric to Ride or Die is a perfect representation of what I was feeling. “I found myself on a highway heading south when I should have been going the other way.” I literally wrote that line while commuting to my job. I had been working a 9 – 5 and had completed neglected this other part of me. The artist in me was trapped, abandoned, sad and angry. I knew I had to turn things around and focus on music and I was lucky to have someone by my side to encourage me to live in my power.” Rena Hart

SBR Bone and Star – Tidal

Dark, sexy, immersive music to get lost inside of on a summer night. With a distinct 80’s feel, it will hopefully give some of you a haunting and familiar feel, whilst also being edgy, sparkly and brand new! -SBR Bone and Star

Sizzling Hot Summer: “One Plus One” by Alex Kate

“I asked Heather to describe her childhood summers and she explained that she would spend them at a Lake near her house in Toronto. There she met her first crush and described the way that they felt like the only people in the world. It was like one plus one, the only maths equation you need when you are in love.” Alex Kate

Martina “Cloud Nine”

“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

Audri- Mechanic High

The concept of the album is about retaining happiness and recalling those times we were happy and creating even more for us to remember on the future. Audri captures this sensation of playful joy on a music level and lyrical level through storytelling techniques that place us on a certain time-space.

Something Better: “Everlasting” by Maya Salafia?

“I want people to hear, feel and experience the real, authentic me, and I hope that comes through in my music. I love to use imagery to tell a story in my songs, and to share my true self and a piece of my heart and mind with my audience. Also, even though I am only sixteen, which some might consider young, I strive to be taken seriously as a prolific songwriter and performer”. Maya Salafia

“TIGRESS” by Nemesis

The music she makes provides a creative understanding of how Nemesis can empower herself and other courageous individuals to accept the truth about who they are and celebrate it.

Hell on Earth: “Hollow” by Harpa

“Hollow” is about the cost of loving with your entire being… the anguish of feeling yourself falling again, knowing the price you will have to pay, and being helpless, unable to stop yourself.It’s about a vicious cycle of pouring yourself into someone, leaving yourself empty, and somehow finding the will to do it all over again.

Jennifer Alvarado – “Rock This Way”

“I like to challenge myself with songwriting. Usually I pick some obscure word from the dictionary or even have someone throw an idea at me. With this one, I wanted to see how many classic rock references I could put in one song.” Jennifer Alvarado

B of Briz – “What Would Buffy Do?”

‘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

Ainsley Costello “Two Ships”

The song spins up a fury of emotions like a raging whirlwind, and when it ends, there’s nothing left on the scene. The pair of ships have gone under, the fear of losing someone become a reality.

DJ G-String “I Want You to Know”

“I Want You to Know” is a sparkling vocal house tune that gets you up and dancing, and it’s a perfect example of the two powerhouses and what they’re capable of creating together!

Yana “Calm Before the Storm”

This single was influenced by some very sad news- the sudden death of a fellow bright artist in Czech folk scene, a singer and fiddle player Jitka Suranska. Yana didn’t know that artist personally, but hearing of her passing was a shock nonetheless, as she was only 41.

Aldís Fjóla – “Burn”

“This song is written by me and Stefan Örn Gunnlaugsson and the lyrics are by me. Burn helped me find my way and the lyrics reflect that. I am basically talking to myself about daring to live my life like I want to, no matter what the society, people around me and the culture tells me to do. We don’t all have to work for others, break our backs in a “normal” job, if you find the job that you are happy in, that is the right one.” – Aldís Fjóla

Welcome to the jungle: “Games” by Sharl  

Are you totally exhausted from the mind games and the endless bravado of dating? Then Sharl‘s bright, hyperpop single, bursting with the energy of Nintendo tones, is perfect for you. Sharl, the hot music goddess from Melbourne, Australia, has released “Games” globally. Make no mistake, the Australian singer-songwriter is a fantastic force of nature in… Continue Reading →

CHARLOTTE HALL – “PLASTIC HEART”

“I was inspired to write a song with a prominent riff after listening to “She Bangs The Drums” by The Stone Roses and came up with the opening riff first.” – Charlotte Hall

Bold Naked Energy: “Transcendental” by Sdar Lotus

The best way to describe the single is to say “Transcendental” is a melodic creation based on combining two beautiful Heart Chakra Crystal Alchemy Sound Bowls to create a mind and chakra balancing shimmer that not only vibrates at the frequency of love, DNA, and cellular repair (528hz), but also at the frequency of the universe, or “heartbeat of the earth” (432hz).

SYNEYE “Red Wine”

If you love ballads, “Red Wine” is a must-listen. The evocative electronic production makes it an incredible shimmering experience that really lets you feel the weight of emotions the song is about.

Alli Bean- Outside Voice

“Outside Voice is about personal growth & boundary setting. It’s about learning where your responsibilities lie & sitting with the understanding that not all people are our friends, even when they smile brightly & offer us our perception of love. It’s about confronting who we are in the face of the way others see us & shouting loud truths while letting sleeping dogs lie.” Ali Bean

Foe “Diamonds”

Based in Tel Aviv, Foe is a synthpop producer creating sparkling sounds with a dramatic outline. Having recently quit a job to have more time and energy for their true passion – music, Foe finds inspiration for writing music from life. Stories of self-esteem, self-sacrifice to achieve your dreams and the glory and woes of life in general offer a lot of surface to the listener to connect.

The Infinity Process -“Losing Reality”

For the concept of “Losing Reality” we wanted to continue the storyline from our last single, “Sinister”, and write something from the prospective of the antagonists in that song. With this track, we take you into the mind of the people who live to brainwash and control others, and love to watch the world burn.

Silverlux “Born to Chase the Sun”

“We’re heavy on the retro vibe. Although I have a modern computer-based studio, I don’t really use any sounds that weren’t around in the 70s and we try to reflect that with our visual aesthetic too. It’s not a conscious choice, it’s just what moves me. The lyrics will generally have a story, but they’re not the focus of the song, as it’s more about the sound and creating a vibe.” Clive Mead/Silverlux

Roisin O’Hagan “Road From Nevada”

Dreamy guitar sounds and smooth percussion invite into a soulful celebration of life, love for exploration and experiences, and love for the person she has grown to become. Her beautiful vocals soar high like an eagle, and the lyrics are tipped full of little references, tipping hat to the artists whose music had inspired her music the most, as well as giving a nod to phrase “sometimes dreams do come true”.

Shyli Madhala “Rainbows & Sunshine”

“My upcoming single ‘Rainbows & Sunshine’ is about our life online. How unreal and confusing it can be, how lonely it can make us. It’s a reminder to myself and whoever wants to remember with me, that our hearts want to be loved for the messed up human beings that we are, that we need a real connection between us to be healthy, not just a WIFI connection.”.

DIVINE DECADENCE – “PURPLE DRESS”

“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

Holly Wild “Thrill of It”

“Thrill of it is about the chemistry that you feel with someone that you shouldn’t, but there is an addictive electrification that you get when you are with them, and you can’t stay away. You know you should, but you don’t. It’s a type of torture, a self punishment that you put yourself through when you are with them because you know you can’t be with them, but the pain feels so good that you don’t turn away.” Holly Wild

Wild Fire “When It Wasn’t”

So even if it may be saddening to think that there was no love to begin with and you may have been a fool the whole time, “When It Wasn’t” also perks you up with a strong burst of energy, helping to see it as a lesson and to move on. Hold your head high and carry on!

Arlando Mba “Sweet Child Of Mine”

This is a very emotional ballad that will, no-doubt, touch the souls of all those of us who have lost their beloved. Most likely it will also offer solace to those for whom it’s their deepest fear. And as words often get in the way of explaining the feelings, it’s always better to seek solace from something as heavily relatable as this single and let the feelings flow.

A. B. Violet – “EQUINOX”

All my tracks are a little insight into my story and mental health matters. Music inspires me, generally: I think it can be so powerful, but it’s more about what motivates me, rather than inspires. I always hope that with each track, someone can relate in some way, feel like they’re not alone, that their story matters and are encouraged to speak out. EQUINOX is more upbeat than some of my other studio releases, but it’s just another way of framing these important issues. The more positive frame is symbolic of the spring equinox and how it’s spiritually associated with hope and new beginnings- I think that starts with speaking out, reaching out for help. A.B. Violet

Wild Fire “Like Home”

“Like Home” tells the struggles and untold truths long distance couples have to face, highlighting the hard decision and trial that is determining if the feelings are strong enough to make the hundred or thousands of miles feel like little to no problem.
