Hamburg based producer duo Moonbootica has just came back with their third offer of the year. A potent electro pop piece titled ‘Say The Word‘ which sees the presence of singer Andie Nora.
Her hypnotic vocals gently float above a cinematic production. It’s a very powerful song, made of big sounds, instant melodies and a massive dose of elegant textures.
Andie Nora says: “‘Say the Word’ is about holding back words, when you’re waiting for the other person to communicate how they feel. By the end of the song though, “say the word if you want nothing at all” is my way of saying: if you don’t appreciate my love- then let me go.”
While the two add about the accompanying official video: “Like everybody right now we are yearning to return to our normal & beloved lives, craving for loud music, clubs and dancing – but there is still no real sign of that happening anytime soon. At a certain point we decided to see the covid19 pandemic as a chance. A chance to focus on music that tells a slightly different story – not the club music narrative you might expect …’Say the Word’ tells a more differentiated story of life and love. As we are deeply connected with our home town of Hamburg, we want to show you a less common perspective of this city. Working with the “Hood of Saints” crew is a perfect match: they too stand 100% for Hamburg as it really is.”
The new double single ‘Keep On / Silence‘ is the second release of the new collaborative project of Dario Lessing and Rezar.
The two tracks showcase the musical range of their upcoming ‘Better Days‘ EP.
While ‘Keep On‘ is one of the more straight forward tunes of the record with catchy melodies and even an uplifting, subtle raggaeton rhythm carrying the beautiful piano parts. ‘Silence‘ is a more fragmentary, atmospheric and takes you on a musical journey with airy drums and abstract vocals.
Swedish artist and producer Elina Eriksson sings about her own experiences within a long-term relationship on self-written and produced new single ‘I Don’t Wanna Be Mad at You‘.
The follow up to her debut ‘Discover Her‘, is a heartfelt song which explores challenges and struggles that can appear in a relationship with someone. Part scandi-pop, part modern r’n’b: this is a delicious comeback single you shouldn’t miss.
Speaking about the song, she explains: ”You have so much love for that person and the last thing you want is to be mad at that someone, that means the most to you. But certain things keep occurring and sometimes it’s inevitable not to fight. It will either bring you closer or it will take a toll on the relationship and might ruin what was so good about it, in the first place”.
If you’re looking for some fresh, sun-kissed lo-fi vibes, you’re in the right place.
‘Caroline’, brand-new single from Belgian outfit Great Mountain Fire is a colourful and refreshing indie-pop gem. The murmured singing of Thomas de Hemptinne, languid and nostalgic, unfolds quietly on a neutral and straight tempo that invites waking dreams and urban wandering.
There’s a curious story behind the song. Caroline, in fact, is a well-known, almost legendary figure of the streets of Brussels, an allegorical figure of the city, free, happy and sad at the same time.
‘Caroline’ is taken from Great Mountain Fire’s ‘Movements‘ LP – which will be released later this year.
