Kat Saul is one of our favorite indie-pop artists and her new song "Monsters" is a work of art.
She says, “When you’re a little kid, you’re afraid of things like the Boogie Man, Dracula, and Zombies. To be real, I think I’m still afraid of Zombies, but in my experience, growing up shifts your fears. Now instead of vampires and aliens, it’s the fear of failure, mental health issues, broken relationships, childhood trauma, and all the other shit that goes in a messed-up-baggage-cocktail. All that to say, it turns out real life is way more terrifying than the dark. I wanted to write a song that brought that uneasiness to light because It’s a transition we don’t really talk about. I toyed with the idea for about a year before writing the concept because I wanted to make sure it felt real. And wow, with everything that’s happened in the world this year, those fears are more prominent than ever for everyone. I think we all wish we could go back to when our monsters lived under our beds.”
Our sad queen Sasha Sloan is back with her new song "Lie."
On her first studio album, Only Child, Sasha finally steps into her own as a gifted lyricist. “This album is a very mature version of me,” Sasha says. “It’s the most honest I’ve been. And there’s even a twinge of hope in there, which is new for me!” The album, which Sasha has been working on since last year and finished in quarantine, is equal parts arresting and affecting. It’s bold, confessional, funny and real. It builds off the beautiful foundation Sasha set forth with her trio of prior EP’s.
