Now signed to Propellor Records (one of the most established labels to have helped propel the likes of Au/Ra and Yungblud into the limelight), St Lundi returns today with another dreamy pop ballad to enjoy.
“I feel like sometimes when falling in love it’s natural to want to spend every minute with one another. But there comes a point in time where you need to take a step back and remember the world still exists around you. It can make you feel like you’re moving in the wrong direction for a moment but you know deep down you need to ‘Learn To Let Go’ for the relationship to last.”
Taken from the upcoming EP, ‘Heavy Words’ out 24th July.
Some of the catchiest EDM pop you’ll likely hear this week, courtesy of the 21-year old Dutch DJ & producer Anthony Dircson, and vocals from Swedish mega talent ISA.
“‘Know Me Better’ is about after a break up when your ex still is keeping you on a leash, letting you close when they feel like it, and abandoning you the other day. You’ve come to a point where it doesn’t matter what lies this person throws at you. You know you deserve better and that you’ll be fine on your own.”
This Auckland based singer-songwriter creates the kind of love songs that you could listen to no matter how you’re feeling, and that’s a rare talent to have!
“I always wanted to write a ballad that would work beautifully as a wedding song; just as much as one that would be a tear-jerker, while you’re sipping on a coffee and reminiscing about a long, lost relationship.”
“Shooting this video was really exciting for me. Im finding my feet as an artist again and with that Im learning what I like – to wear, to shoot, to put across. These visuals feel like they compliment the vulnerability of the song and also expand on the story. It was important to me to have something simple to follow so that humans watching it could take it in – sometimes complex storyline’s in music video’s confuse me.”
Swedish duo Slide (Albin Skeppholm and Simon Werner) have crafted quite a name for themselves with their unique indie sound; one that plays with lots of other genres in a way that feels both interesting yet understated.
“We felt like young people nowadays, including us, spend a lot of time worrying about the future and growing up and making money and stuff like that. And we don’t really have the answers either so we’re pretty much just singing to ourselves saying “keep going it’ll all make sense at some point’.”
Taken from their forthcoming sophomore EP, ‘Things I Tell Myself’ which is out on 31 July.
Moli returns with a half-English and half-French pop track that is probably her most stylised to date. There’s a real evolution in this talent’s sound and I am so pleased to experience it.
“Writing is the outlet for all the emotions I keep inside me. I can’t imagine my life without music. I need it to function and to get through the hard times. Sometimes I write a song from the point of view of the person who made me suffer.”
