Char – Control
Inspiration for the lyrics has come from Char’s personal experiences, which she also expresses through her work as the Co-Founder of the non-profit mental health organization Mad Millennials. Psychology graduate from the University of Liverpool, Char now integrated this passion within her song writing and development as an artist. ‘Control’ has been produced by Waggaman of Hip-Hop’s, Roots Manuva. ‘Control’ delves into Char’s personal struggles with her mental health and self-love, existing on a sliding scale between strength and vulnerability. ‘Control’ deep dives into Char’s personal struggles with her mental health & self-love. In 2020, Char’s 5 track, EP ‘First Five Fix’ will be released. Charming with florescent streams of dreams, the vocals of Char’s Americana/Country vibes, shine from the heavens with beautiful sheen and attention in ‘Control’. The gentle spear of love and care, exudes through the seams of the song, caressing and comforting.
C. SHIROCK – Lost To The Night
C. SHIROCK is Chuck Shirock. We’d stated prior: “Outpouring from the deliberate and sentimental vocals of Chuck, delivers the vulnerability and agency, which perpetuates al of the unique offerings from a C. SHIROCK production.” Your senses hear one, as your heart muscles palpitate into something different, and wild – all within a gentile footprint of mind and soul. C. SHIROCK’s music has been featured in the U.S. with multiple national TV networks including NBC and ABC, with brands like American Eagle and Hollister. “Whether it’s capturing a feeling, or telling a specific story,” the artist elaborated, “it’s always based on my own life. If it doesn’t come out of my own emotional experience, it feels inauthentic and I don’t feel connected to it”. The now Nashville based artist, continues to construct with the mortars of feelings and story telling of emotions. A flood of consequences, linked at the most palpable, his singles serve with distinction and integrity in heart.
Dunesters – Lackadaisical
A single that was originally released in 2018, sums up what the project Dunesters represents. It’s a “catchy pysch rock song about thinking about someone too much who isn’t thinking about you at all,” said the outfit, “or if they are thinking about you it’s just because they enjoy the attention you give them..” Off of the album ‘Ego Suplex’, the synth/indie-pop project casts a certain kind of civility, where it toes the line of the diplomatic certitude and the mysteriously ambivalent. The mind is where the heart begins, and in Dunesters, the revival of such rapture, is sullied to the corners then petted into submission. No pain, no gain for the practically servile.
HOFFEY – Holiday
HOFFEY is an indie-electronic duo based out of Vancouver, Canada. Songwriters Jordan and Erika Toohey said: ““When we start the writing process, we usually begin with melodies or chords—maybe even a beat,” says Jordan & Erika. “We both love so many genres of music; jazz, pop, r&b but what is awesome about electronic music is you can integrate and mix different styles while still being true to your sound. Most of the songs we write, start out on guitar or piano, and once we have a foundation, we can add those electronic elements to give it the overall vibe, feel and climax it needs.” About ‘Holiday’ they added that it “is a song most people can relate to — where you’ve been working at the same job, doing the same shit every day — to the point where you might lose your mind.” Smooth, nostalgic, low calories – the simple but delightful pop extravaganza, trims the edges of reality and celebrates big. Humbly, of course.

bülow unveiled the official music video for ‘Boys Will Be Boys’ from her latest EP, ‘The Contender’. “I love creating with people that have a unique eye,” bülow commented on the making of the video. “The process needs to be fun, so being inspired by each other’s work is important, and I found that with James (director James DeFina).” German-born and Toronto-based pop-iconoclast, bülow made a splash on the international festival circuit, appearing at both the Electric Picnic and Reading Leeds festivals in Europe, as well as Bonnaroo, Lollapalooza, Osheaga, and SXSW in North America. 2019 has been a busy year, with bülow accepting her first JUNO Award for Breakthrough Artist of the Year, joining The Chainsmokers as a feature on “Do You Mean” with Ty Dolla Sign, performing on The Today Show, and releasing her EP Crystalline.
