Mental health is a hot topic at the moment, and rightly so.
Speaking out about said issue is rising Manchester-based artist, RUNAH, who describes her new single ‘This Silence’ as one that “explores feelings of isolation, pain and bodily disconnection, which can be felt not only by the sufferer, but also by those who seek to support them. It’s of great importance to me to acknowledge both parties.”
Her folktronica-based music has a delicate approach and ‘This Silence’ showcases her ability to write sensitive and forward-thinking music with captivating visuals.
It’s not just her vocals in ‘Quiet’ that we are astounding by, but also MILCK’s rise against her own history of physical and sexual abuse.
Ever an advocate for women’s rights, MILCK performed ‘Quiet’ at last Saturday’s Women’s March with 25 other female singers of all different backgrounds and ages in acapella ‘flash mob’ choral performances.
MILCK is also launching a major social media campaign around ‘Quiet’ to raise awareness against abuse of women and minorities. Proceeds from the project will benefit Step Up, an empowering nonprofit that provides after school and mentorship programs for underprivileged girls ages 13-18. More info here.
Sounds like: Lana Del Rey, Brandon Flowers, Prinze George, Gabrielle Aplin, Banks, Sia
Wow, GabrielleAplin is back with a complete change in direction, but we like it.
Her instantly recognisable vocals work perfectly with the soft tropical undertones of her new radio-ready and bittersweet love song, ‘Miss You’.
Co-written by Aplin ‘Miss You’ was produced by Mike Spencer (Snakehips, RudimentalEmeliSande, Ellie Goulding, JackGarratt), who also produced Aplin’s debut album ‘English Rain’.
Not satisfied with writing new material, Aplin has also started up her very own independent record label Never Fade Records which was founded “in order to give young talent and unsigned artists their first stepping stone in the music industry.”
Aplin’s forthcoming ‘Miss You EP’ will features three original tracks along with a beautiful piano version of ‘Miss You’ in Aplin’s signature style.
