WILLA – Cause You Did

WILLA

Much like Charli XCX, Toronto-based pop artist WILLA has music and colour synesthesia; a cross-sensory condition which allows those who have it to experience things with more than one sense.

Channelling a new sparkling colour in ‘Cause You Did,’ WILLA confronts the feelings of pain associated with the person that hurt her the most.

Sounds like: Billie Eilish, VÉRITÉ, Charli XCX

Joakim Molitor by Niklas Åkerlund

Arguably Sweden’s best kept secret, Joakim Molitor today shares his short and snappy single ‘Back To You’, out on TEN (Zara Larsson, Icona Pop, Niki & The Dove, Benjamin Ingrosso).

All good things come to end, but luckily SoundCloud has a repeat play button for this uplifting romantic, electronic ballad.
