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.
Based in Sydney, Sloan Peterson has grown up recording songs, filming music videos and playing vintage records with her sister and friends. Her music is a nod to the garage rock music of the 50’s.
The video for her single, ‘105’ is the first to be shot in the historic building of The Strand Arcade since scenes from David Bowie‘s music video for ‘Let’s Dance’ and features Sloan Peterson as well as a cast of alumni dancers from the Australian Ballet School and Sydney Dance Company.
This is her debut single taken from her upcoming debut self-titled EP, out on 14 July via Mirror Records.

Marika Hackman is stepping out of her folk shoes into a pair that now have a better fit.
First on the agenda is ‘Boyfriend’. It’s a brazen track, full of witty innuendoes and squeaky guitar riffs, but the message behind the lyrics of the track is clear – never underestimate a woman’s abilities.
Hackman’s second album ‘I’m Not Your Man’ will be released 2 June through AMF Records and Sub Pop.
Fans that pre-order the album can get access to tickets for an intimate show at a secret London venue on 6 March. Enter here.
