emilytreadgold #1, New 9 Tracks

Grammy-award winning artist Greg Cox teamed up with one of our fav indie voices, A$H., for one of the saddest but dreamiest songs this summer. “All Alone” starts with sweeping strings moving into a sultry beat. “I laugh so hard I cry a bit, all alone,” Cox sings over the dynamic arrangement. The perfect song for sitting in your apartment thinking about your ex that you can’t seem to shake, maybe you could never get the timing right. It’s such an interesting composition and shows the depth of both artist’s talents.

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.

Soaky Siren's sound is so bold and unique and she's always giving us these infectious melodies that we can't shake. Her new song "M.I.A" is absolutely going to be our summer anthem, she just instills this confidence in her music. She's definitely someone to be on the lookout for, because she's rising to the top.
FLAVIA is NOT holding back on her boldly sexual song "Switch." While FLAVIA has never been discreet, at this point in her career she has fully-owned her sexuality and it's so empowering. Every song she puts out just makes us feel stronger.
