Set for release tomorrow, March 16, Wendy Halo’s latest single, ‘Fire And Ice’ tells the story of a relationship where one partner is distancing themselves, and the other is trying to bring the passion back, and restore the spark. The track follows on directly from her most recent single, ‘Compromise’.
‘Dear Happy’, out today on through AWAL and Never Fade Records, is the latest album from Gabrielle Aplin. A look at her life compiled while touring and travelling all over the world the past few years, it’s an uplifting and empowering album of 14 tracks, exploring her state of mind during this time.
It’s hard to believe, but Keenan Willard only started writing songs at the start of 2019. His debut single, ‘Like You Do’, released ahead of an EP set to come out in the summer, sees him drawing on his North Carolina roots, and infusing his sound with the inspirations served by his surroundings in El Paso, where he is based, and works as a TV reporter.
‘Trippin’, the latest sultry and sensual alt-pop hit from Italian-enigma Giulia, was one of the most ear-catching releases of 2019. With its bass drops, lazy drum beats and Giulia’s unmistakable vocals, it’s one of those songs which is both instantly recognisable for what it is, yet remains a total mystery. We wouldn’t have it any other way, of course.
For her previous release, ‘Meant To Be’, pop singer Alexa Friedman was a mermaid in the music video. With the video for her latest single, ‘Take Me Down’, she’s chosen to address a different fantasy altogether, this time of a martial arts master and deadly swords-woman. With first a mermaid – the siren of the sea luring unwary seamen to their doom – and now a kick-ass ninja, you get the feeling that Friedman doesn’t suffer fools gladly.
