Born Stranger – Cheating Love (Feat Caitlyn Scarlett)

Born Strangers

Nothing beats a beautiful electro-pop duet.

UK-based Born Stranger (aka Maddox-Jones and Raife Hacking) invited emerging vocalist, Caitlyn Scarlett, to join them in the studio. Just 15 minutes later, the verse and lyrics to ‘Cheating Love’ were created.

Caitlyn explains, “The phrase ‘cheating love’ can be perceived as infidelity, but the undertone I wanted to convey was that of cheating love the same way someone might cheat death, a close shave but ultimately avoided.”

The track is co-produced by Yoad Nevo (Sia, Pet Shop Boys, Goldfrapp).

Sounds like: Prinze George, Sia, The Wombats, Bastille, Major Lazer, Years & Years, M83, Foals, KAPTAN, The Brocks, Tears for Fears, Depeche Mode, Myzica

MILCK – Quiet

MILCK

MILCK

Proving anything but, MILCK shares ‘Quiet’.

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.
