Billie Eilish – hostage

Billie Eilish

Exciting pop star, Billie Eilish shares her latest track called ‘hostage’.

It’s a stripped back song, but despite its all acoustic feel, and much like all of Billie’s music, there is a darker side, as she explains “”hostage” is a song that borders on and explores the unhealthy side of love. Billie points out “when you are so in love that you feel like you can’t be without them and you can’t see them with someone else. It is not a healthy feeling but I think everyone feels it at some point.”

Her “dont smile at me” EP is out now via Darkroom/Interscope Records and has been produced by Billie’s 19-year-old brother Finneas O’Connell.

Billie Eilish – Bellyache

Billie Eilish

Billie Eilish

Following on from such an incredible debut must be difficult, but Billie Eilish is as tough as they come.

Her latest single is called ‘Bellyache’ and takes a more stripped back/acoustic approach. Billie wrote ‘Bellyache’ in her bedroom with frequent collaborator and older brother Finneas O’Connell who produced the track at the home they grew up in, in Los Angeles.

“When I write, I try to become different characters,” exclaims Billie. “You can write a song about being in love with someone, but you don’t have to be in love with anyone. You can write a song about killing someone, but you don’t have to have killed people. ‘Bellyache’ is about doing one of those things but it’s mostly about regret and guilt.” She continues. “Becoming a character can be really fun; to put yourself in a place you would never really be.”

Deliah – Better The Devil

Deliah

Deliah

New track, ‘Better The Devil’ by Deliah is slightly out of the realms of what we would normally post, but we think the Liverpool-based duo have something pretty special.

The jazz-tinged R&B release is, as lead singer Michelle Harris and instrumentalist Alex Dopierala put it, “an almost sarcastic look on being oppressed.”

Honing their live set, Deliah have spent the last year supporting Ady Suleiman and Maverick Sabre

Harper – SKIN

Harper

Harper

Hot on the sexy heels of Dua Lipa is uk R&B artist, Harper.

‘SKIN’ is another sultry number with a pulsing electro beat and addictive hook.

Harper describes the track as ‘an earthy, raw, alt-pop record with a much deeper concept than you may perceive from first impressions. I wanted to write about the properties of ‘skin’; how it’s our protective barrier from the world, it’s power to heal when cut, and apply that sentiment to my love for a person.’

Her EP will be out via ICU Label.

Sounds like: Dua Lipa, Rihanna, Banks, Sizzy Rocket, Charli XCX
