Frances Hope “Stay”

"I needed to voice the reason we decide to stay in those situations," Frances began, "so others healing from the same type of heartbreak can take solace in the fact that they are not alone. Stay is a letter to those needing to forgive themselves for what they experienced, and recognizing healing is non-linear and nothing can be gained from a relationship that makes you suffer."

Mia Mormino “Alternate Reality”

"This song is about my tendency to disassociate when my life here on earth gets to be too much," Mia opens up with, confirming the message the song is carrying. "Instead of handling my problems, I create alternate realities to temporarily escape to. I've now learned that this way of coping isn't the healthiest but it sure is fun. Mia Mormino

Jesse Brady “Conflicted”

Inspired by the phrase “It seems like you’ve got a feeling and a knowledge and they’re kind of criss-crossing”, which was told to Jesse by one of biggest influences, her grandmother, and written in a couple of weeks, this song resonates with the part of us that hates making decisions and the part of us that feels gratitude towards those loved ones who can always help us clear our head. 

Shayanne “All You Are”

In All You Are, the artist writes from the perspective of the villain. With the rising popularity of bad guys in media in recent years, it is no longer a surprise to meet someone who's favorite character is the protagonist's enemy. However, what is endlessly enchanting about the way Shayanne brings Sylvar to life in the form of a song is how she humanizes him. 

Sunday Hunter “Illogical Sphere”

The desire to wake up present in the lyrics can easily be washed away by Sunday's signature guitar riffs and sweeping and lulling synths. In an unexpected turn of events, the song itself becomes a sphere; while discussing how trapped one can feel in this world, Illogical Sphere ironically created a small bubble that allows people to take a break from the suffocating everyday routine. 

HVIRESS “Golden Apple”

Oozing Machiavellian intentions, Golden Apple lures its victim with sugar-coated lyrics and innocent appearance while it prepares them for unexpected a heavy dose of mischievous dark magic. Their siren song, and their beautiful vocals, can distract from the psychedelic and eerie sounds complementing the instrumental, but for those who've managed to see past the charm of their voices, the delicacy they sing with only adds a level of alarm.
