Simen Mitlid – Somewhere
Hailing from the lush woods of Os, Norway, singer-songwriter Simen Mitlid crafts lush, Nordic indie-folk a la contemporaries like Sufjan Stevens, Fleet Foxes and Patrick Watson. Somewhere is the last track from Simen’s sophomore album “Neutral”. ‘Somewhere’ is a experimental and nostalgic indie ballad, about the dark parts of your consciousness. Feel it, squeeze it, prim it, extract it. Kick it, caress it, hug it, address it. The soul of methods unrequited, glitters in the vocals of Simen.
Supperclub – We Are The Stars
“In a time when the world’s feeling more and more divided, “We Are The Stars” is a human anthem inspired by Carl Sagan who once said “We are a way for the universe to know itself. Some part of our being knows this is where we came from. We long to return. And we can, because the cosmos is also within us. We’re made of star stuff.” We’re all connected as humans. Supperclub pulls influences from Trap, Nigerian guitar style, Garifuna music from Belize, Tribal House, and connects them all into “We Are The Stars.” The outfit is a songwriting and production duo based in Los Angeles and they’ve written and produced songs for artists like BANNERS, OCTAVIO, Josie Dunne, Courage My Love, Liz Huett, Jon Bryant, among others. Their songs have been featured in TV shows such as Grey’s Anatomy ,The Good Doctor, Nashville (ABC), Famous in Love (Freeform), Easy (Netflix), Younger (TV Land), as well as ad campaigns for Lucifer (Fox), Snap, and Dove.

Los Jardines de Bruselas – Far Away
“This is a special song. It was composed entirely while in the process of moving from LATAM to Europe, my new home. My girlfriend moved 3 months before I did, and this song was written entirely the day she left, while trying to find myself in the half empty apartment.” Ezequiel de la Parra’s one-man-bedroom-band & project from Buenos Aires, he sums up sentiments with beautiful parodies of life, love for the things that he had, and the life that was being constructed as he wrote his song. In the split moment of being alone, things clicked and things just became more clear. Of those things that seem just a part of his life – were in turn life-itself. New worlds to conquer from his bedroom realm, indeed.
Blush FM – Move
The talented Blush FM offers ‘Move’, and she gifts us with this stunning slow-burner that’ll have you second-guessing all your relationships. “‘Move’ deals with allowing one’s self the space to develop their own integrity. It was written in a moment of time where I’d began to explore my judgment and instincts more thoughtfully. ‘Move’ encapsulated that trust in myself, while acknowledging that it doesn’t look the same on everyone.” The New York-based artist explores space with eyes unbound and her emotional ties to the realities with vexing culture and vehimently exquisite doubts. The uncertainties mix with the confidence from frustration and anger. But the ultimate shift from the red-eye flames of passion, gleans into that exact space of novel empathy and courage. Blush FM delivers once again, and again. Look for her upcoming EP, due out this Autumn.
