Hypnotic vocals, experimental textures and a massive dose of pop appeal, make of the song a must listen.
Speaking about it, she explains: “The difficulty in maintaining balance and the fear of letting go. The song symbolizes the transformation we experience as soon as we leave a relationship behind, when we feel lost yet attracted to a new beginning and the unknown. The sample within the song is meant to simulate a video game, where you fall and get back up until you pass onto the next level. “Vertigo” is the jump to the new level.”
An outstanding music video accompanies the track, with ultra cool visuals shot at the most beautiful metro station in Europe: Metro Toledo (Napoli).

Italian singer/songwriter HÅN has just released a new single.
Titled ‘Leave Me!‘, the song will be part of her highly anticipated debut LP – which will be released later this March. It’s a gen Z-pop banger. HÅN pristine voice paints instant melodies, made more interesting by a smart use of experimentalist sound architectures and enriched by some r’n’b-esque texture.
Speaking about it, she says: “‘Leave Me !’ talks about feeling oppressed by a condition and the will of move on and get away from it. Lyrics are ironic and light, but hide a more profound message. It’s like a tender and cutie cartoon character who hides a knife in his pocket.”

Modern-pop with, nu-r’n’b aftertaste and a massive dose of scandi catchiness: a fire tune you shouldn’t miss.
Speaking about the song, she explains “I wrote my track ‘Breathe’ in a very sarcastic way, to portray the way I now think of myself in my past relationship. It was a very tumultuous chapter of my life, so getting out of that and writing this song almost gave me a little bit of closure for that relationship. Although it might just be one of my many coping mechanisms, I love to make fun of myself in that situation because I’ve now been able to move past it, with this song I guess.”
Last month, indie-pop duo All The Rest returned after a long break with a summery, guitar-lead jam titled ‘Heat Sweat‘.

Speaking about their new single, they explained: “‘Gentleman’ felt very left field for us at first. But we knew we needed something up beat and not too serious. As soon as we wrote the hook line we all kind of looked at each other and went “yoooooo!”. The lyrics are definitely a little cocky but who cares. It’s fun to be cocky sometimes.“.
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.”
Nick Elliott is an emerging producer with an interesting story behind.
At 16-year-old, he qualified for one of only five elite junior triathlon teams in America. This led Nick to train for nearly forty hours a week and travel globally on Team USA in national and world endurance sports championships. Unfortunately, his goal of competing in the Olympics would be cut short. At 19, he suffered a career-ending cycling accident. No longer able to race competitively at elite levels, he was left with broken dreams. With much soul searching, he came full circle and found his path through music.
With a series of successful releases on his back, he’s now back with a summery, carefree dance-oriented banger titled “Through This Night”.
For the occasion, Nick has teamed up with Texas-based artist Nate Miller. His powerful vocal and his impactful songwriting are supported by Elliott’s uplifting production, providing a sense of hope and liberation to the listeners.

Co-produced by them together with Daniel James (Hayley Williams), Stay is a pop song with a benevolent mission, calling for unity during a time of conflict. Empowering sing along chorus, colorful synths and thumping beats, smartly combined together by a rising band you should keep on your radar.
“‘Stay’ was written as our anthem in response to the division we’re seeing in our culture and in our country,” the band explains. “Seems like people are increasingly being pitted against each other, and we just want to foster love, understanding, and mutual respect. There’s nothing more powerful than truly loving people where they are at. We want people to be honest, express themselves, and still know that we can be family and friends. And we’re going to stay that way.“.
