SOFI TUKKER – Baby I’m A Queen

SOFI TUKKER

Our babies SOFI TUKKER are back with more childlike and rampant energy than ever before!

Inspired by all things magical and youthful, SOFI TUKKER are on a mission to inspire, encourage and play with others and ‘Baby I’m A Queen’ does just that.

“Just because you are vulnerable, doesn’t mean you have to let yourself be belittled or infantilized (why is “baby” the default nickname?)” the band says of the song. “We are strong and empowered because we cry, because we desire, and because of what is chaotic about us. This song is about standing up as strong and powerful, because of that courage to share ourselves. It’s about being both a baby and a queen at the same time.​​​​​​​”

Their forthcoming debut full-length ‘Treehouse’ comes out on 13 April.

Sounds like: Crystal Fighters, The Knocks

Dana and The Wolf – Got Me Poly

Dana And The Wolf

Indietronica duo Dana And The Wolf have a good attitude problem, and it’s damn right infectious. But don’t judge too quickly and think all they do is like to party as they also enjoy a good musical!

Their new single ‘Got Me Poly’ tackles the prejudice towards polyamorous relationships. As Daniel puts it “At the end of the day being “poly” is just as ridiculous and insatiable as “mono;” the latter is just more boring.”

One of these results is ‘Faster’,  which covers a kaleidoscope of unshackled themes and variations.

Josh Jacobson – Sideline Feat. Gigamesh

Josh Jacobson

Josh Jacobson is effortlessly combining modern R&B with dance-pop in his new single ‘Sideline’ featuring co-production from Gigamesh.

On the subject of the song, he explains,

“Sideline is a song about growth and building in new directions, learning to let go when it’s necessary to move forward. It’s about those inner voices at times of transition that are at once exciting but so challenging emotionally. I think these lyrics will resonate with a lot of people in different ways, so I’m excited to hear how people relate to the song.”

Sofi Tukker – Best Friend feat. NERVO, The Knocks & Alisa Ueno

Sofi Tukker - Best Friend feat. NERVO, The Knocks & Alisa Ueno

When it comes to friends, New York-based electro dance pop outfit Sofi Tukker are about to get a whole lot more, thanks to their latest release being featured on a well known phone advert.

The twosome have teamed up with NERVO, The Knocks and Alisa Ueno on ‘Best Friend’, which celebrates their relationship,

“This song is a celebration of our favorite thing ever: friendship. It’s about the kind of friendship where you can talk forever without anything in particular to talk about. Old friends, new friends, all friends! In the spirit of friendship, we just wanted to have some of our friends hop on a verse! We’ve been lucky enough to travel the world this past year and the best part of the journey is the friendships we have made and the friendships we have been lucky enough to revisit along the way. We (Soph and Tuck) have also become each other’s best friend over the past few years, and we are so grateful to each other!

Our friendship with the Knocks is what gave us the confidence to pursue a career in music, thank you Broc and Jpatt! Nervo, newer friends, inspire us and motivate us to push ourselves and be relentlessly positive, thank you Mim and Liv! Alisa is a brand new friend who we share a ton of mutual friends with and we are also building a new friendship with Japan. We are so looking forward to going back! This track is especially fun because now we have an excuse to perform together, shoot a music video together and generally share the joy of music with some of our favorite people.

To the friends we have had long before SOFI TUKKER, the friends we have met along the way, and the friends we have not even met yet, you all make our lives so much better: this song is dedicated to all of you!”

SO much love!

Alyss – T S I E R

Alyss - T S I E R

Alyss – T S I E R

Alyss is an exciting new project from a classically trained singer/songwriter/producer.

Her latest single, ‘T S I E R’ is short for This Shit Isn’t Even Real, and is inspired from shamanic teachings.

Of the track, Alyss says “I’d been studying shaman teachings around that time and there was one principle that I couldn’t get out my head: dreams are real and reality is a dream. Both are equally as real as they are hallucination. The more I dissected the concept, the more it tripped me out. In a good way. It’s mad how such simple words have completely changed how I view existence. I guess making T S I E R was like an audible screenshot of that perspective shift”.

‘T S I E R’ is taken from her forthcoming ‘Motherland’ EP, out on PMR.
