Growing from her roots in rural Scotland, Electro Pop songstress Fourth Daughter has shared a single from her yet-to-be-released debut EP HYPERREAL. The single, titled ‘Say What You Want’, comes with a B-side, ‘Calling Out Your Name’. Let’s dive in.
‘Say What You Want’ is a lush dance record. Glide notes reverberate around Fourth Daughter’s warm voice, bolstering its distinct emotion. Bordering on nostalgia, its mood is unquenchable. Upbeat yet slightly sombre, the interplay between happiness and sadness creates a tension that the beat eases, engendering a sense of cathartic release.
Being the youngest of four daughters, Emily Atkinson discovered her love of music while looking for a way to entertain herself in the quiet countryside. Making a name for herself in her homeland under the moniker Fourth Daughter, she has previously been named one of BBC Radio’s Artists To Watch in 2020 by presenter Vic Galloway.
JUNO and SOCAN Award-winning electro-pop artist Dragonette delivers the infectious power-pop anthem ‘New Suit’, available now via BMG. ‘New Suit’ is the first release for Dragonette (the professional moniker for highly sought-after songwriter Martina Sorbara) following a newly signed global recordings agreement with BMG earlier this summer, and the first new label partnership for Sorbara in over a decade. Dragonette describes ‘New Suit’ as a “power-pop pep-talk”, and a “mash-up of retro and contemporary sounds and imagery”, and the track serves as a much-anticipated first look at a forthcoming collection and Dragonette’s first full-length release since 2016’s Royal Blues. Also available is the stunning lyric visualiser for ‘New Suit’, a striking pop-art collage paying homage to stop-motion animation techniques.
Of ‘New Suit’ Dragonette shares, “The lyrics include classic words that are intended to ping-off digital era concepts. But at its heart, the song is about finding your way back to your power while the world keeps shaking up your life.”
With a career spanning over fifteen years, Dragonette has scored numerous global hits including ‘Pick Up the Phone’, ‘Let it Go’, ‘Tokyo Nights’ with Digital Farm Animals and Shaun Frank, ‘Outlines’ with Mike Mago, and the chart-topping ‘Hello’ with Martin Solveig, which garnered a JUNO Award win for Dance Recording of the Year. Collaborating with the world’s biggest DJs including Martin Garrix, Basement Jaxx, Kaskade, Galantis, and more, Dragonette’s musical diversity knows no bounds, and as a songwriter her credits include Keith Urban, Cyndi Lauper, Pretty Sister, and Carly Rae Jepsen with The Knocks among others.Creative versatility shines across Dragonette’s four acclaimed studio albums, including Galore (2007), which earned Dragonette a JUNO nomination for Breakthrough Group of the Year. the JUNO-nominated Fixin To Thrill (2009), the JUNO-nominated Bodyparts (2012), and 2016’s Royal Blues. With global headlining credits too numerous to list, Dragonette has also supported the likes of Duran Duran, New Order, Ke$ha, and Miike Snow, and amassed major festival credits, playing to thousands of fans at Coachella, Electric Daisy Carnival, Glastonbury, and Lollapalooza. Now, with the release of ‘New Suit’, Dragonette moves into the newest chapter of her illustrious career, with more new music news to come later this year.
Relationships are complex enough, and Sabrina Monique wants to let go of unnecessary baggage in her latest song‘More Than A Friend’. The track, released via United Word Records, has now also been complemented with an energetic music video featuring the songstress as she does what she loves, and that is working in the studio and having a lovely time while doing so.
In an interview withMuze FM,Sabrina Monique mentioned:“No one’s path is linear and everybody’s will look different. The worst thing you could do is get down on yourself while you’re trying to forge your own. If something is difficult or feels impossible I can assure you it is most likely worth it, so keep going. The grass is always green where you water it.”
Wise words indeed from the singer, she engages with her fans by sharing personal and relatable experiences in her music. Sabrina Monique is an honest pop goddess that is definitely on the right path. Watching this latest video of the singer, one can easily absorb her bubbly and magnetic energy.
Let’s Eat Grandma, the duo composed of songwriters, multi-instrumentalists and vocalists Rosa Walton and Jenny Hollingworth, are today excited to share their first single in three years.
“Hall Of Mirrors”, out now via Transgressive, is an ethereal, glistening pop song about a beautiful, intense moment remembered, and a welcome return for the acclaimed Norwich pair. The track comes with a hazy, dreamlike video directed by El Hardwick.
Rosa Walton said the following about the song and video: “I wanted to use the setting of a fairground at night to describe the dizziness, intensity and excitement of being with a woman I had strong feelings for, and the hall of mirrors as a metaphor for discovering and exploring parts of myself that I was bringing to life. In some ways it’s reflective and almost secretive, journeying through confusing and difficult emotions, but I also wanted Hall of Mirrors to be a euphoric song that conveys clarity, confidence, and ultimately joy.”
The single received its first radio plays last night on Jack Saunders’ BBC Radio 1 show as his Power Play and this morning on Lauren Laverne’s BBC Radio 6 Music show as her While You Were Sleepingtrack. Stream / watch “Hall Of Mirrors” below. News of more music from Let’s Eat Grandma is to come.
