Katelyn Tarver Chats About Last Single ‘Nicer’ And Announces New Single Release ‘Hurt Like That’ Out On October 21 Before Album ‘Subject to Change’ Drops In November.

Katelyn Tarver has a new song out next week but I was lucky enough to get the chance to chat with her about her last release, ‘Nicer’, a song that reflects on the people pleasing tendencies that we all have sometimes and which has become almost an epidemic of non-confrontation leading us to bottle up all that angst.

Hands Up: Irish Band N.O.A.H Talk About Their Music, Performing, And Their New EP, ‘Echoes Of The Night’, Out Today October 1

The Covid-19 pandemic is still going, but thankfully things are starting to open up, and when it was announced that fully vaccinated people from the UK were able to travel to Ireland, I leapt at the chance, and booked some interviews to go ahead while I was over. One interview was with N.O.A.H, a trio from County Meath, who really only came together during the Covid crisis, and now, as we reach a new, “do-able” normal, are poised on the precipice of something big, at exactly the right time.

Charles on TV Today Releases The Outstanding EP ‘Truth & Lies’ With Lead Single ‘Lately’

Charles on TV says of ‘Lately’: “‘Lately’ is a f*ck you song. It’s an anthem for the nice folk who’ve been brought up to keep wrath tamed and turn the other cheek. A song for those of us trained to passively aggress because we don’t know how else to release frustration. It’s an upbeat tune mimicking the smiles we wear when, inside, we’re angry”.

Kovic Interview; Life, Liberty, and The Pursuit Of All Things Music

Kovic, a.k.a Mark Konstantinovic, is a U.K. based singer, songwriter, and performer. Kovic’s career started with him traveling constantly from London to Brighton playing every open mic night he could, working his craft, his showmanship, and his songwriting with every new audience he found himself in front of. After years of building his reputation brick by brick, he released his debut album ‘Running Underwater’. The album saw an incredible 40 million streams on Spotify. Opting to stay independent, Kovic turned down a major label contract and in 2019 found his song ‘Drown’ featured in that year’s FIFA video game, followed up by a performance at the Royal Albert Hall for BBC Radio 1. Gearing up to release his latest album, I had the chance to sit down and chat with Kovic about life, liberty, and the pursuit of all things music.

A little while ago, I got to hear the latest single from R.I.Pablo, singer/writer/producer and member of the Manchester writing collective, The Six, known worldwide for developing some of the catchiest pop melodies around. It’s always exciting seeing creative people do what they do best, and in the case of R.I.Pablo I was looking forward to hearing what the follow up to “Sunday Morning Boy” would be (Read my review of R.I.Pablo’s “Sunday Morning Boy” here: https://essentiallypop.com/epop/2021/08/hit-maker-r-i-pablo-strikes-out-on-his-own-with-new-single-sunday-morning-boy/).

The laid back chill vibes of Ethan Gold’s latest single, ‘Pretty Girls’ has a mix of 60s rhythms and bossa nova vibes. Even so, the modern production values give the track a crispness that’s impossible to be captured on the 3 and 4 track recording systems so prevalent in that era.

No More What If: We Speak To Harper Starling About Her New Single And Her Music

It’s always tough to take the big step and follow your heart’s desire. Harper Starling is one such person who made that leap, leaving the beautiful area of Eastern Wisconsin, in order to chase her dreams of making it in Los Angeles. We’ve previously written about her single, ‘Euphoria’, her collaboration with The Perry Twins, which made it on the Billboard Dance Chart, but now we’re taking a deep dive into how she got there, with her biographical track, ‘No More What If’, which is not only her story, but also an encouragement to anyone who is debating whether or not to make that jump, to get their voice heard.

Chelsea Collins Releases Long Awaited New Single, ‘Wake Up at Our Funeral’ Today And Proves Yet Again That She’s A Singer With A Massive Future

At just 22, Chelsea Collins is a name that you will almost certainly start to hear more of. Having racked up over 25 million streams with the brilliant ‘Used to be (L O.V.E.)’ and catching the eye and ear with the poignant ‘O7 Britney’, she’s back with three new songs that will almost certainly be the centrepiece of her EP which should hopefully drop before the end of the year. I really think that this will be lift off for this outstanding artist.
