Headlining a project focused on growth and acceptance, honeymoon is the perfect first look into what "the butterfly boy" will sound and feel like: facing someone you've got shared history with who's fully moved on and even found love might bring forth any sort of negative reaction, yet Errin can only find happiness for the other person instead of prioritizing the bitterness and melancholy he's feeling at the moment.
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.
Painting By Numbers “Weakness”
As they swim deeper into their memories and old emotions, Painting By Numbers takes their listeners on a profusely philosophical and stirring journey. With allusions to being consumed by something bigger than the self — well-nigh impossible to defeat, the song brings forth questions about how we've gotten to the point we're at now, how things could have been different, and if the pain was necessary at any point.
Anna Baldree “Final Girl”
With soft harmonization, an acoustic guitar, and a dreamy atmosphere, the track feels like the song equivalent of being naked alone. It is bare yet complex, beautiful yet hard to look at because phasing the truth instead of looking at things with rose-tinted glasses has never been easy.
Illumen “Drifting Apart”
Time has never been merciful to people; it comes and goes without ever pausing, and we have no choice but to move on and leave what time has taken away from us. Illumen understands this reality and has learned to do what they can to not be left behind too. That is how the poetic and heavy-hearted Drifting Apart is able to exist.
Shyli Madhala “Pink For My Money”
"For me, it's a revolution in every way. I've been hiding my dream and hiding my voice for so long, letting trauma and illness run my life story, this song is the end of that and a beginning of an era of beautiful music and powerful messages that need to be heard. Pink for My Money is about my pain and confusion around growing up as women at this point in time." Shyli Madhala
Little Victories “Set In Stone”
Set In Stone is a one of a kind debut. In the matter of three minutes and fifteen seconds, listeners will be able to take a peek into the band’s heart and understand the strongest desire of the identity known as Little Victories.
Surrounded by mellow syths, energetic drums and intricate and intimate lyrics, this London based newcomer is making a name for himself and his heart-throbbing pop music. Alongside that, there're his skills as a songwriter, making Arin set a standard for other up-and-coming rookies in less than a year since his debut.
Lia Nxieta “Good Boy”
“To me this song is less about the sexual act itself as it is about the relationship between me and Good Boy. It’s supposed to be fun and liberating and give you some wild thoughts of course.” Lia Nxieta
22 Oceans “Drifting”
The beginning line "Wish I could take back all those days that I" is not implying remorse over letting go, but rather expressing how they wished that period of time had never happened at all. Those moments of pain and bullying did help to impulse growth and maturity, but there is still some anger over the mere fact that those experiences ever happened in the first place.
