Speaking about the new single, Grady said, “The song is about a fleeting addiction that hooks you on the first taste. You might forget over time or move on, but once you’ve had it, it will remain a memory forever.

daste. – either way

daste either way

Over the last few months Australian trio daste. have been busy working on their debut album “dusk/dawn

The first single off of it is titled ‘either way’ and it’s a chilled, indie-pop cut you shouldn’t miss.
It’s not just an utterly pleasant song, but has also a very positive message behind.

As the trio explain: “Late 2019 we were playing The Lansdowne for EMC and after our set we met Maina Doe backstage who insisted we link up next time we were in town. Come January, we were in Sydney again, supporting our friends Midnight Pool Party, and stayed for the weekend to do some writing. We met up with Maina on a cosy Sunday afternoon and started working on the track that would become ‘either way’.

We started with some chords that felt like they were interchanging between light and darkness, and the lyrics and message of the song were able to flow from that. ‘either way’ represents the constant struggle that we all have within ourselves about the ups and downs of life. It’s also about recognising those troubles and taking them in your stride, because even though it feels like everything might not be going the way you expected or maybe the worst day you’ve had in a while, the sun will rise either way. At the end of the day it’s up to you on how you want to experience those kinds of days and you can choose to learn from them or let them swallow you whole.”.

Billy Vena – Talking 2 Myself

billy vena talking to myself

Buzz artist Billy Vena has recently released a new bop titled ‘Talking 2 Myself‘.

If his previous single ‘Disco Maniac‘ was full of late 70s vibes, this new one taps into 80s nostalgia.

It’s a bittersweet tune which immediately grabs your attention. Contagious and accessible, but still highly recognizable. Billy’s vocal is really one of a kind and that sax finale is the cherry on top of an extremely strong pop song.

In Billy’s own words: “‘Talking to Myself’ is about convincing yourself someone you’re in love with also feels the same when they really don’t. This in turn means you’ve been talking to yourself the whole time

Reyn Hartley – Bow

reyn hartley bow

NY via Texas Reyn Hartley croons on his brand new single ‘Bow‘ and brings forward a sound you’ve never heard, evolving the space in a sonic world that is entirely his own.

The independent artist (who’s gained internet fame with his song ‘Snitch‘ racking in over 30 million streams across DSPs) grew up listening to doo wop and other classics at home with his mom and would go to school and listen to rap all day with his friends. Those heterogenous influences here make the pair with a very personal vocal resulting into an addictive tune you shouldn’t miss.

Hartley is currently working on his debut LP ‘Georgia‘. The story behind this title it’s something you wanna hear. Georgia, in fact, is the daughter of one of the most notorious drug lords in American (and international) history, for the privacy of all involved Hartley created the name “Georgia” as a pseudonym. The two met in Texas while attending school before dropping out and have spent what Hartley describes as an incredibly beautiful but toxic five years together.

Coyote Island – Hello Silence

coyote island hello silence

Maine-based songwriter Mike O’Hehir aka Coyote Island has just returned with a new single titled ‘Hello Silence‘.

Possibly his most radio release to date, the song is a contagious pop cut made of sing along melodies and enriched by sun kissed reggae vibes.

Speaking about it, he explains: ““Hello Silence” is about taking a break from the noise. The always turning wheels of thought in today’s era of information can be overwhelming. Sometimes a little peace and quiet can really set my mind straight. It’s like the calm after a storm. My favorite line is in the second verse: “seen a rainbow colored sky and I don’t even have to wonder why”. This carries some personal sentiment for me. Rather than a philosophical quest for meaning, it’s about demystifying the unknown by simply embracing it. In that letting go, so much more is received through the experience of awareness and presence. I’ve come to enjoy the simplicity of life lately, and this song reflects that. No matter how many trips or far out you get, sometimes catching the right sunset just really takes the cake. I wrote the lyrics shortly after the pandemic set in and they are very much about our current times. In a way, I look at this time like the end… but also the beginning of something brand new. “Hello Silence” invites you to tune out at the static and tap your toes.

Bird and Byron – Life Is A Bore

bird byron - life is a bore

Bird and Byron, composed of Blake Bergere and Nick Lorenz, are a songwriting duo from Columbus, Ohio.

Inspired by The Strokes, Skeggs, and more modern alt-rock groups, their lates single ‘Life Is A Bore‘ is driven by adventitious, dynamic vocals from Bird, and silky rhythmic guitar from Byron. Combine those factors with snappy lyrics and quick changes, you got yourself an anthem.

Speaking about it, they explain: “The release was intended to provide some form of escape during these crazy and uncertain times. Many people that we know personally have been looking for some sort of way to distract themselves from the daunting pictures and stats that are seen on live tv. The song itself serves as an anthem to how crazy life is right now. With all the restrictions that we now face, it’s hard to find any sense of freedom, and we wanted to amplify those frustrations. Every now and then, you may just want to run away from everything and forget it all. If that’s the case, this is your song.

ALBRT is the project of Italian songwriter and producer Alberto Pagnin, born from his urgent desire to express himself by combining electronic pop music with minimal ambient and piano compositions.

His brand-new single, titled ‘With You‘, is a nocturnal electro banger full of dreamy vocals, smooth synths and massive dose of Jamie XX vibes.

Speaking about it, he explains: “I painted a melancholic harmony with the bass; but I wanted something more, something magical and nostalgic. I wanted to create an ethereal modern piece, something that makes you feel like you’re floating on a cloud. So I added harp arpeggio, dreamy vibes, reverb-soaked textures and my beloved piano on top of that. The result is ‘With You’, possibly the most romantic songs I’ve ever written
