Stalgia – Talk To My Skin

Stalgia - Talk To My Skin

Stalgia seem to be channeling the provactive nature of Banks more and more, and we are definitely not complaining.

Their new single ‘Talk To My Skin’ is our favourite yet – hypnotising vocals repeat as a dirty synth line moans throughout the track until an ultimate climax at the end, resulting in both an inner and outer body musical experience.

alxxa – Hung Up

alxxa

Not only does alxxa have a degree in physics, she also appears to have a pretty good grasp on how the musical universe works.

Her new track ‘Hung Up’ is bang on point, with relatable lyrics that gently flow over soft keys and alxxa’s smooth vocals.

“Hung Up’ is a very special song for me,” shares alxxa. “It was the first song I wrote when I moved to Los Angeles…alone, sitting at the piano, all in about an hour or so. It was a combination of shitty relationships, bad habits, nasty injuries, toxic work environments, poor self-image…you name it. Realizing I needed a change, I packed my things and drove across the country. The week long drive cleared my head and released a lot of the negative energy I had been harboring for a long time. This song describes the toxic cycle I was living in, at war with my surroundings and with myself.”

alxxa – Nobody

Meet “pink haired songstress”, alxxa.

It’s been a little while since the Los Angeles resident released her debut track, ‘Fire’, so the electro-pop, power ballad, ‘Nobody’, is well overdue.

Produced by Gazzo, the lyrics accidentally came together when alxxa was explaining to Gazzo how she had been given some weed from an ex-lover, which used to work great when they were together, but was no longer getting her high the way it used to.

Emma Gatsby – 2 Steps

Emma Gatsby – 2 Steps

Sassy 19 year old Emma Gatsby knows what the deal is, and she isn’t letting anyone get in her way.

Hailing from New York, Emma learned to play the piano and cello at the tender age of four, with her mother teaching her, until she sadly passed away when Emma was aged nine. Following this, Emma picked up a guitar and decided to teach herself to play. She was writing songs by aged eleven, but was using music as a way to distract herself from the realities that she found herself in, especially after her father passed away.

Of her latest song, Emma says, “‘2 Steps’ is a song I wrote about a relationship or should I say several relationships. As much as it’s based on my real life experience with an ex, it was more so, my realization that I was always the one doing the damage first that inspired the song.”
