Los Angeles-based Paris Carney is sending a prayer out to all of those suffering.
The track was written following her mother’s breast cancer diagnosis in early last year, as well Carney’s consideration of how fragile the state of the world currently is.
As with all of Carney’s music, ‘Send A Prayer’ conveys a notable passion through her use of heartfelt lyrics and vocal tone that continues to invite us to join Carney amongst her closest thoughts and feelings.

To celebrate the release of Say Lou Lou‘s debut album, ‘Lucid Dreaming’, the sisters have revealed a short film encapsulating the essence of the album in its entirety.
The film, set to the band’s single ‘Nothing But A Heartbeat’, was devised by the band and directed by Joanna Nordahl (Lune, Ji Nilsson). Alongside the album body of work, inspiration has been sought from Lars Von Trier’s ‘Melancholia’, Hans Zimmer and ‘On Being Ill’ by Virginia Woolf while drawing parallels to religious ideology and exploration of mental sanity. The band appear in a dream-like state, surrealistic and boundless with abstract thoughts running free.
The band explain the idea; ”Dreams are a way for human minds to digest their memories, and this film is sort of a digestion of our experiences of these past years as Say Lou Lou.”
Watch the stunning short film below:
Lucid Dreaming is available now via À Deux/Cosmos Music and can be purchased on iTunes here.

Sweet-voiced, Londoner Pawws has just reveal the video for ‘Sugar’, the title track from her debut EP, available now from Best Fit Recordings.
With the song’s foundations all swirling eighties nostalgia and wondrous layers of vintage synth, directors White Rabbit bring the world of ‘Sugar’ alive with a suitably retro nodding kaleidoscopic feast for the senses.
White Rabbit comment on the inspiration behind the video: “Due to the nature of the track we wanted to make something with an 80’s vibe. We’ve always loved the old retro videos shot on original VHS cameras and wanted to have a go doing this with Lucy’s video, mixed with some fun psychedelic visuals we created ourselves.”
Pawws’ Sugar EP is now available worldwide digitally and will be followed by a highly limited CD and vinyl edition this summer. Each CD will be hand finished by Pawws herself whilst the 12″ version will be pressed onto pink coloured vinyl. Both formats are available to pre-order now.
Swedish-Australian twins Say Lou Lou have been on the Indietronica.org radar for a while now, and we are pleased to present the video to their new single ‘Everything We Touch’ which is out on Columbia Records on June 2nd 2014.
‘Everything We Touch’ will appear on their imminent self-written album, and is a melodic, luscious piece which does full justice to the girls’ vocal ability and musicianship.
The duo have recently toured in support of London Grammar, as well as a recent performance supportingFoster the People in London.
The hot new girl in LA town seems to be Paris Carney who has popped up on the indietronica radar with new single, ‘It’s Always The Quiet Ones’, a summery, dreamy track with soft, layered vocals, and a complex and interesting array of electronic instruments progressing throughout the track.
The track was written and recorded in her Los Angeles apartment and mixed by Jesse String. It’s a stylish and elegant track, showing off Paris’ production skills in what must have been an impressive home studio. She comments that “I wrote this song in my kitchen as I was making dinner, it literally was written in it’s entirety in about a 30 minute period. I was reflecting my experience in the music industry and how people try to change everything about you. I really hope this inspires people to remain true to who they are … You’re better that way!”
The photo shows Paris flashing her diamond and wedding rings, clearly proud to be married whilst still as independent and stylish as ever.
Currently being distributed as a free download, listen to (and download) ‘It’s Always the Quiet Ones’ below.
