CHVRCHES – He Said She Said
Scottish Synthpop band, CHVRCHES, drop their new single “He Said She Said.” I love the production. They treated Lauren’s vocals so well. She’s electric.
In an interview with Annie Mac, Lauren Mayberry (lead singer) stated, “Like everybody, we’ve all had a lot of time indoors to reflect. I think it was just having time and space to look back at certain things I’ve done or experienced and as a woman that you just brush it off and keep going, and it’s weird to have a little bit of distance and look at the things and been like “What the, expletive that you can’t say on BBC, was happening?” Whether that’s something you did and you internalized or things that other people have done. But also I feel like it was better to scream frustration into a pop song than scream it into the void and hopefully, that’s something that anybody can relate to at this moment.”
Zoe Wees – Ghost
Zoe Wees has a beautiful, powerful voice. The production on her new song, “Ghost,” does her justice.
“‘Ghost’ was written about letting someone get too close, even if you know they can hurt you,” Zoe shares. “It’s about the feeling of being vulnerable to that person in a way that could basically destroy your life. It was written in one of my first writing sessions, so it feels special to release it.”
TWICE – Kura Kura
South Korean girl group, TWICE, releases “Kura Kura.” Wow! K-Pop groups don’t make bad music videos. This one is beautiful. Enjoy this UTA-produced song and make sure you peep the video.
Wolf Alice – Smile
British band, Wolf Alice, drop their newest song, “Smile.” This is the second single release from the upcoming Blue Weekend album. The song and video both go hard. They bring the energy to crush any weekend.
Wolf Alice leader, Ellie Rowsell, states, “This is one of the songs we wrote thinking that we would play it live. I miss that feeling of singing on stage. It’s like screaming into a pillow or something — you can get away with being more nasty. There’s a whole other part of me missing.”
ryster – Bad Girls Club
Ryster kills it with his brand of sad boy trap vibes. His new song, “Bad Girls Club” is pretty spot on for him.
