‘Midnight Cowboy’, by Antherius – the project of Texas based artist Tom Reynal – is an homage to the beautiful city which is right now hurting about as hard as it possibly could hurt because of the continuing COVID-19 crisis. Although not a New Yorker, Antherius nonetheless understands the New York story, and the video for his version of the theme song from the classic film of the same name features nothing but shots of the magnificent city. Not just a tribute, but a celebration of the central place New York City holds in the consciousness of not just the United States, but the whole world.

It’s hard to believe, but Keenan Willard only started writing songs at the start of 2019.

Australian producer, Double Agent is back with ‘Feels Like’, and the track is definitely one to look out for!
