Bronze Avery's insane knack for melody and pop choruses is just so apparent in his new song "Risky." It's such a vibe. 

"this is the moment i had my heart broken distilled into four minutes. it’s by far the best & most devastating thing i’ve made. i hope you love her." - VERITE
"'Permanent Manic' is a love letter to Robert Smith from The Cure. I’ve had a real obsession with him since I was a teenager and even went through a phase where I did my makeup like him and dressed like him. The Cure’s music hits me in a way like nothing else has, and I’m so inspired by Robert, his sound, his writing. This song is about how I love him, and he’ll never know. 'Permanent Maniac' is definitely the vibe I’ve been trying so hard to create for a long time. So, thank you once again, Robert Smith (if you’re reading this, I love you)." - GRAE
"So many things could go wrong in a day: car accidents, shark attacks, lightning strikes, drowning, losing loved ones... I go through periods where I pull every and any nearby fear into focus. The attempt to fit as many of these fears as possible into an upbeat production for "The Nineties" was a very deliberate act intended to help me view myself with a lighter heart, to take back some control, and to laugh in the face of my anxious habits." - Luna Shadows
Disco Shrine is giving us life with her new song "Hello." The song radiates her DIY pop style and the sunny video is exactly what we need. Queen of aesthetics honestly.
"I wrote this song for my loved ones who are affected by my mental health. i will always try my best to get better for them, and i am forever grateful for their presence in my life.'" - girl in red
"the way I see myself has put a strain on my closest relationships and it’s ruined so many moments that should’ve been fun. I’m so critical of myself and my body and I often wonder what I would be like if I spent less time worrying about my appearance and more time worrying about what really matters. sorry for the emo rant lol but this song is very near and dear to my heart." - Sasha Sloan
"It’s the little white lies that uncover the biggest lies. They build like little clues to the breaking point. The song references the water-bearer (Aquarius reference) uncovering the lies and washing them out in water. She is cleansing the lies and creating an equilibrium of purity once again. Besides water, there’s a running theme of White Horses that are all-knowing & all-seeing. They stand guard. The lies can’t get past. This was written as a giant metaphor in my head from a personal experience." -Karolina Rose
Casey Conroy's sweet voice and effervescent melodies always brighten my day. She has this sense of vulnerability and emotional depth and "Remind Me" is a perfect example of that.
"Selfless love acts without expectation of receiving anything other than the satisfaction of giving. Benny has been crying out for affection for far too long, he struggles to believe that he deserves it. Benny reminds us that vulnerability is the only way out and the only way in." - Zella Day
