Mokita (aka John-Luke Carter) always writes heartfelt music, and his new single ‘Inside Out’ is no exception.
Written during a time when Luke was battling depression, the track studies the battle of being human, and that it’s ok not to be ok.
Speaking on the track, Luke explains:
“I wrote ‘Inside Out’ during a time of my life where I was battling some major depression. I actually wrote the first half of the chorus when I was 17 when someone close to me was going through some major addiction issues. Years later the chorus kept coming back into my head as I was dealing with some similar issues of my own. I felt like I was chasing success simply for the sake of finding meaning. I wasn’t being a good friend because I was only focused on myself, trying to find meaning in places that only let me down. You can have the world, but if you don’t have people to share it with it’s meaningless and empty. I was struggling to believe that someone could love me for me; that if they fully knew me and saw my issues that there wasn’t any way I could be truly loved. This song at its heart is simply about the battle of being human, and knowing that we weren’t meant to have it all together.”
We challenge you not to become obsessed with ALL THE REST, a band from Georgia comprised of best friends, Caleb Smith (vocals, guitar), Baylee Waller (vocals, guitar), Jud Harris (drums), and Tre Housman (bass).
Their electro-pop catch, ‘Our Youth’ represents captures the essence of the band – loneliness and love while representing those who are “all the rest” of society.

Moving on from a relationship can be challenging. The best thing to do is to write it into a song. This is exactly what Nashville-based Mokita (aka John-Luke Carter) has done with ‘Til I Don’t’.
Mokita started playing the piano and at the age of six and singing in the choir shortly after. After adding the guitar to his list of skills later on, he eventually ended up in the world of music production; giving him everything he needed to begin crafting his body of work as an artist.
When two talented multi-instrumentalists get together, the result is Triptych Miró.
Effortlessly combining electronic jazz & soul, the duo – comprised of Erez Sivan & Sapphire Adizes from Los Angeles via Tel Aviv – melt boundaries with their ultra cinematic, but heartwarming production.
Producer and remix heavyweight (having put together remixes for Betty Who and soon, Maggie Rogers), Nashville’s John-Luke Carter, aka Mokita, is a singer/songwriter/producer and self-trained multi-instrumentalist known for his lyrical and buoyant electronic-based pop.
His heartfelt new single ‘Kiss & Tell’ is another addictive cut. Check out the video below.
It’s a shout out to everyone who struggles with anxieties of daily life, a supportive song that urges you to maintain your passion and drive, something that LOVE SICK are very much doing within the music industry.
Vintage keys and delicate vocals highlight ‘Eventually’ by Me Not You as a short and sweet song that is straight to the point.
Speaking of the track, “…it’s a personal song for me… a sort of hyping up of myself to the idea of squashing the beef with someone. the baggage of relationships can linger, and it does no one any good to keep that shit around.”
Despite the deliciously boozy bass-lines and woozy vocals in ‘High’ that conjure up feelings of warm stoner summers, the song was written and recorded during the coldest and darkest part of the year, which is only a testament to Florda Well for their positive outlook.
