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.
Life has been bringing in surprising turns and changes, particularly in the recent years. But even if the changes are for the worse, there's comfort and solace found in between. Bridget Kelly Quinn's debut release was co-created with guitarist and keyboardist David Lennon, comes titled "Dead Flowers" and is home to 10 songs, which all touch a theme sprouting from her personal life, as a mother, daughter, sister and a friend. Thus, the album's 30 runtime minutes are packed with meaningful lyrics and beautiful melodies.
Her debut EP is full of such life-inspired stories, making it a release to listen to for comfort whenever you're feeling low yourself. The introspective and diary-like release has 8 songs with a total runtime of about 25 minutes.
"Together is a song I originally wrote during an emotional improv session. I sang about overcoming fear, paired with the necessary reflection of my honest emotions surrounding love." Rebecca Sichon
"When listening to my music, one can expect a glimpse into the said event, feeling, or person, and get to know a little bit about it in the song." Samantha Knight
Lost in the pleasant haze of purplish pink and carried away by a million butterflies, this lively song feels infinitely young and positive with no end.
The new single sees this prolific and busy New Zealander teaming up with a charming vocalist Alba Rose. Together they wrote the song, and Alba provided her enchanting, layered vocals that enhance the dramatic scene taking place in the single.
To further instill the toxic and dark theme of the song, Sophie created very fitting cover art for it. Drawing inspiration from old horror and mystery novel covers, the song's cover art has everything - the vulnerable me-character out in the open, the eery surroundings and most importantly, the barely visible hooded figure with undeniably malicious intents never too far away.
"This person had been my best friend for years, and they hurt me so badly with their complete narcissistic tendencies. I almost ended up in a mental institution over it. Singing and recording this track helped set me free", Anne Bennett
"I wrote this song back in the spring after a conversation with a friend of mine. I realized that this person didn't know how loved they were, and I didn't quite have the words at the moment to convey that. I went home and wrote this song the next morning. I kept it pretty simple- I felt there wasn't much more I could say than the words that first hit the page." The Wren
