Singer/songwriter Christina Ann O’Connor aka Constance has recently released a brand-new single titled “If hell’s where you aren’t, that’s where I wanna be”
With quirky indie pop production, chugging guitar and satirical lyrics, the song is about that shitty ex you couldn’t get far enough away from. Edgy but ultra-catchy at the same time, this is a summer bop you shouldn’t miss.
The single will be followed up by an exclusive NFT drop in collaboration with Illustrator artist Shoko Yanagisawa June 4th on OpenSea. A 1/1 collectable piece that includes unlockable content of the vocal acapella, in which the NFT owner can use to make their own remix of the song.
Speaking about the song, she explains: “I wrote this song in a very challenging time in my life. Post breakup, it felt like my entire world was falling around me as I slowly realized how toxic and unhealthy the relationship became until it came to a closing point where I just wanted to run as far away as possible. Despite the heaviness of the moment I wanted the song to stay in a light, sarcastic space and capture the sentiment that despite the circumstance or the feeling in the moment, everything in the end is going to be okay. Alongside the hurt and grief, was the opportunity to lean on close friends and family and really flourish many beautiful relationships in my life. And truly, after rain comes rainbows.”
About the video, director Littil Swayamp said: “Everyone has someone or something they’d metaphorically rather be in hell than with. This music video showcases four different characters stories capturing their struggle and journey to find peace. This fun and lighthearted film is meant to remind us that if it’s not okay in the end, it’s not the end.”
Swedish duo I AM KARATE (aka producer and songwriters, Marta Pettersson and Erika Ahlström) shares new single, ‘Hey Love’.
Speaking about insecurity, the girls explain,
“The song is about insecurity and not feeling sure you’re being honest with your love. Like he’s got a secret world when he’s dreaming that you’re not a part of, and you wonder if it’s more than just dreams.”

Nottingham-born singer/songwriter/producer/multi-instrumentalist Ronika is back and sounding distinctively disco-noir.
Continuing Ronika’s inclination for all things funk and dream pop, the track features spoken-word contribution from Lee-Ann Curren (a French female pro-surfer and fellow musician) whilst also forming part of Ronika’s latest longer-form project.
Sounds like: ABBA, Chaka Khan, Aeroplane, Breakbot, Ballet School, Ladyhawke, Color War, The Human League, Little Boots, Bananarama, Annie
Bristol-born pop three-piece KOKO have a natural wall of energy which they call the “KOKO traingle”.
They’ve just dropped the acoustic version of their debut single, ‘Freak’. Stripping back the electro-tinged original of their debut singl, it’s all about embracing individuality – “It’s a FU to the man!”
Candian singer/songwriter and dark romantic Constance (formerly of NÉONHÈART) shares her raw and emotional new single, ‘By The Summer’.
Summer is the time for hopes and dreams to come true, and Constance definitely throws herself into the wind – ‘By The Summer’ is a gritty song that poetically portrays the ride or die type of love.
Constance is also the founder of by constance, a line of beautifully hand crafted candles, incense & custom apparel found online, where a portion of all the proceeds goes to the Good Shepherd Women’s Shelter in Los Angeles.
Los Angeles-based singer/songwriter Dylan Emmet has a gut wrenching story to tell. After discovering about a two year old daughter he never know about, Emmet packed his bags and moved to New York to be a full-time dad and musician.
He has enlisted Candian singer/songwriter Constance (NÉONHÈART) on their emotional song ‘Memory’, and the special chemistry between Emmet and Constance is clear throughout the song.
