emilytreadgold #1, New 9 Tracks

Dagny is back with her specific brand of electric pop.

She said: "I am beyond excited to finally introduce 'Come Over', the first single from my upcoming debut album. The song is a pretty self explanatory, cheeky little thing that celebrates the "meet and greet: phase of a (potential) relationship. Let me put it like this: if you meet someone you’re intrigued by, then 'Come Over' is your fearless, ballsy and excited invitation to get to know’em…particularly if they are a fireman who likes puppies."

BAD CHILD is one of the hottest up-and-comers right now and his new song "Candy" has been featured on the new To All The Boys I've Loved Before soundtrack so you know it's amazing. We love the driving sound and those cool undertones.

CRJ is returning to her roots with this super sweet but a little edgy kind-of Valentine's Day bop? It's adorable and we'll take all the Carly we can get!

We are ALLL here for the Birds of Prey soundtrack. Seriously, what a lineup. Cyn's song "Lonely Gun" is such a standout. Her voice is just perfection and it's got all the badass vibes we need. Honestly, it's such a different sound for Cyn and love to see it.

LÉON delivers a gorgeous new ballad in the way that only LÉON could. “In a Stranger’s Arms” is a soft pop, forlorn lullaby about the metamorphosis that happens after moving on from heartbreak and the willingness to take a risk and start over ‘in a stranger’s arms.’

According to LÉON, “Over the past few years, I’ve learned how to go with my gut and steer the wheel myself. If it doesn’t feel right to me, I don’t pursue it. In the end, I stand behind the music I make, and I’m in control.”

“Sorry Doesn’t Work,” a vulnerable and emotional piece that opens with intimate vocals and warm guitar, is a desperate plea for forgiveness. It tells of that cycle many of us know too well—of pushing people away, only to wish they stayed.

According to the San Francisco native, “The song amplifies the question we all wish there was an answer to: How can we help when the word ‘sorry’ doesn’t actually heal, fix, or help? What can we do when the pain is so deep, or out of our control that we’re left feeling helpless trying to console someone? I still have yet to find the answer, but it felt important to share with others that we all feel helpless and desperate to heal.”

Blake Rose returns today with his smoldering new single, “Gone.” Written and produced entirely by Blake, the song starts out as a delicate ballad, before gradually building added layers of lush production complementing the urgent intensity in his vocals.
Speaking about the new single, Blake reveals, “Gone is a story of someone who is dealing with the grief of losing the love of their life. I wanted to express how powerful love can be and how much it can impact the others’ life once they’re gone,” he explains. “In this story the widowed discovers that under the influence of drugs they can see they’re loved one again almost like they’re still together. This song immerses you in the emotional roller coaster of that experience and paints an idea of what it could feel like to be in that position.” He adds, “though this song isn’t from personal experience, I sometimes think of how in love my Mum and Dad are and wonder what would ever happen If one of them passed away. It’s a scary thought but I took the possibility of that and created this story.”

Christine and the Queens does everything with intention, and the new song "People, I've been sad" just kind of says what we're all thinking. It's about withdrawing from your scene and not feeling like yourself. Hélöise Letissier is truly a poet. 

Lapsley wants to just make us cry all the tears because we're so happy she's back and sharing new music with us, and what a killer song to come back with.

She shared on Instagram, "It has been difficult, feeling like I’m constantly either sailing at high speed or sinking to the bottom of the sea; with my relationships, with my artistry, with my contribution to the world around me and my thoughts around the future and the environment. This is an album about the darkness and the light. The highs and the lows. To be submerged in the centre of it all. To be through water."
