emilytreadgold #1, New 9 Tracks

Karolina Rose is always inspiring us with her vulnerable lyrics and enchanting voice. Her new song "Runaway Angels" is so important.

She says, "I wrote this as sort of a chant or a prayer of support for victims of sexual assault. It was inspired by my own personal experiences and how I view the new paradigm we're in post existence of the #metoo movement where it feels like we all support each other a little more, speak up for each other and have managed to achieve more justice and I want to believe this makes the world a little safer for womxn"

Sizzy Rocket is just always one of our favs. She always takes inspiration from her personal life and turns it into a work of art. In her new song "Rollerskating" she chronicles the terrifying experience of falling in love.

“I’ve never even heard my own voice sound like it does on this record,” Sizzy remarks. “I’m proud of myself for going there. It’s a new, softer, lighter side of me that I’ve gained access to through writing my new album, and I'm excited to share it with the world."

Donna Missal's sophomore album is here and it's all we can think about. Her powerful voice and ability to just stab you in the feelings is so apparent. We're obsessed.

“I think about the concept of being aspirational with this music,” she says. “Fuck where I am. Fuck what's actually possible. Where do I want to be? Make things that adhere to the environments you want to be in. Not the environment you're in right now. If you want to play to thousands of people, and you want to see your dream realized in a big way then you have to own it. Sound big. Be big.”

KOPPS keep releasing unapologetic IDGAF songs that are so catchy and just cover topics that we need to hear.

"In a time where we are completely obsessed with the aesthetically pleasing, "U.G.L.Y." headbutts the notion that you need to be perfect just to have a good time. On the contrary, "U.G.L.Y." is a song that pokes fun at over the top, manufactured beauty, and celebrates personal “imperfections” as a real part of having fun while being your truest self. With everything that’s happening in the world right now, we hope that this song offers a few minutes of relief and points you to self-acceptance. Time to stock up on lemons!" - Patricia Patrón

Christian French is one of the hottest up-and-coming artists in pop right now. He just keeps churning out these super earwormy songs. His new song "make or break up" is about miscommunication and misunderstanding in a relationship.

Christian says. “I wrote this song from an experience I had with someone where we were in a big fight, and neither of us were willing to budge. In the end, we decided that we’d always be transparent with each other no matter how badly it hurt, because honesty is synonymous with love and respect in a relationship. It’s the only way a couple can continue to grow, and can make or break any relationship.”
