We had the pleasure of interviewing Kayla Thompson over Zoom video!Singer songwriter Kayla Thompson delivers an ethereal performance on her latest single, “The Remains,” out now. This single is her first release since gracing fans with “Younger,” which recently landed Thompson a major playlist placement on Spotify’s Fresh Finds Pop playlist. At its core, “The Remains” captures the inner conflict of making the right choice even when it is painful; this single reminisces on a summer romance that came to a heart-wrenching end with the shift of the seasons. Thompson effortlessly turns pain into beauty on this track with her honeyed, warm-toned vocals that shine brightly atop intricate instrumentation. Her voice entrances listeners with delicate finesse and a somber delivery that serves as a taste of what’s to come as she embraces her authentic alt-pop sound, and delivers music that is unapologetically her. Listeners can expect to hear influence from artists like Phoebe Bridgers, Clairo and Tori Kelly on “The Remains.”More about Kayla:Twenty-six-year old Kayla Thompson was born and raised in Boston, Massachusetts and later moved to North Carolina where she currently lives with her family. Being raised in generations of singers, songwriters, and musicians, music was always a fundamental building block of her life. In 2015, she recognized her inherited gift of songwriting and shortly after decided to defer from college to pursue music full-time. She began putting out covers on her YouTube channel and Instagram page where she gained more traction.In 2017, she released her first original song, ‘Hold on to My Hand’, and in 2019, she became the most vulnerable she's ever been in her music, releasing ‘Deep Breath’—a piece sharing her personal struggle and triumph over anxiety. With each release since her sound has evolved along with her growing fanbase. This remains true for her latest single ‘Younger’ which gained more streams than any other single in the first week alone, and has been placed on multiple Spotify editorial playlists. More important than anything, music has brought her immense artistic refinement and personal growth as she embraces the journey for what it is and not just the destination.We want to hear from you!

Interview with Emarosa

Interview with Emarosa

2022-05-2441:29

We had the pleasure of interviewing Bradley Scott of Emarosa over Zoom video!Emarosa is returning to the alt pop scene with their dazzling first single since their showstopping 2019 album Peach Club. "Preach," out on April 27th, doubles down on their indisputable talent to create shining pop melodies as they continue to elevate the dance-worthy direction that their fans loved. The track is a culmination of the band’s experiences over the last three years since their previous release, as the lyrics suggest. Additionally, it is listeners’ first glimpse into what they can expect from the upcoming tracks that the band is preparing to release throughout 2022: some of the strongest 80’s inspired alt-pop songs of Emarosa’s career.“From the first snare hit to the unabashed MJ ‘ow!’ proclamation, it only takes a moment to realize we’ve doubled down on the pop sensibility we tackled in 2019. The first words of this record, ‘pack it up, love. Nothing lasts forever,” says everything I’ve felt across the last 3 years since Peach Club. It can all be taken away in a second, you can be at the top and in the blink of an eye you’re at rock bottom. Everyone has an opinion, a stone to throw, they all have something to preach. Just don’t preach to me.” - Bradley Scott, Vocalist of Emarosa.We want to hear from you!

MOD SUN and John Feldmann have again teamed up on this new pop-punk anthem, which features nostalgic guitar riffs and some of MOD’s boldest lyrics to date. “I grew up a scene kid, I grew up a skateboarder and a pop punk kid and I used to get made fun of for being all of those, for the way I looked, the way I dressed, for the way I acted and all the things love and it’s both awesome and hilarious, yet confusing seeing the general public and pop culture embracing all the things that I would get torn down for,” said MOD SUN. “This is a song that I wrote for all the kids that feel confident in their own skin and don’t walk around wearing a costume.” “Everything now is about trends,” said MOD SUN. “If it keeps going this way and getting championed then eventually originality will be a lost art. I’m trying to let people know that there’s more to this world than what’s currently popular. I want kids to feel like it’s important to be visionaries not followers."In addition to the new single, MOD SUN co-wrote and co-produced a majority of the tracks on Avril Lavigne's latest album, Love Sux, which debuted at number 2 on the Billboard Top Album Sales Chart.

We had the pleasure of interviewing Rose Betts over Zoom video!Standout British singer/songwriter Rose Betts wears her heart on her sleeve in her triumphant debut full-length album, White Orchids, out now! Rose wrote and co-produced the entire album. To Rose, White Orchids represents a loss of innocence; a moment of pure youth and fragility where her heart was broken. Just as an orchid blooms once before it is usually discarded, it feels as though one can grasp on to youth for merely a fleeting moment. Rose released the emotional, self-reflective album single “Recovery” late last year, and it was recently synced for usage for the CW hit TV show "Legacies." Another album track, "Driving Myself Home," went supernova on Tiktok in January and is now closing in on 2 million combined streams and well over 5 million views. Rose also released “Song To The Siren” last year (producing the track as well as performing it), which served as the leading song of Zack Snyder's Justice League (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack), created by GRAMMY-nominated multi-platinum producer, musician, composer and educator Tom Holkenborg. Olympic Silver Medalist Alexandra Trusova used “Song to the Siren” in her recent Olympic run. ABOUT ROSE BETTSHailing from London, England, Rose Betts is a singer-songwriter with an uncanny ability to pen beautiful hooks and lyrics with a depth beyond her years. A regular on the London music scene and darling of Sofar Sounds, Rose toured the UK in 2017 and self-released her first EP The Stars Look Down. She has received major radio play on BBC 2 and BBC 6 and continues to blur the lines of conventionality through her collaborations with art, film, theatre and virtual technology. She is also involved in other collaborative projects, working on Bazzi’s single ‘Young and Alive’ which was nominated for Best Remixed Recording at the 63rd Annual GRAMMY Awards and “Song to the Siren,” her contribution to the Zack Snyder's Justice League (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack), which she performed and produced.

We had the pleasure of interviewing Matt Simons over Zoom video!Fresh off the release of his new studio album ‘Identity Crisis’ and a coast-to-coast US tour with 2Cellos, LA based songwriter Matt Simons has revealed the music video for “Years,” featuring exclusive behind-the-scenes footage from his biggest concert tour to-date. One of the most vulnerable tracks on the new album, rich in subtle production and an emotive feel, “Years” features Matt’s exquisite pop songwriting in full force. A story of humble beginnings, Simons grew up in Palo Alto as the grandson of two opera singers. He spent much of his early life studying jazz and classical music before switching to clarinet and guitar, and ultimately crafted his own identity as a melodic pop songwriter and lyricist. He took steps to self-promote his releases online, and to his surprise, a remix of his breakthrough single “Catch & Release” bubbled up organically and ended up as one off 2016’s biggest hits, reaching Gold and Platinum status. International recognition, performances on The TODAY Show, and billions of streams followed. Last week Simons released his fourth studio album ‘Identify Crisis,' featuring his recent hit singles “Better Tomorrow,” “Cold,” and “Identity Crisis,” which have amassed over 50 million streams. With sweet, piano-rooted melodies and lyrics that speak plainly about important events in his life — including his struggles with anxiety – the album was written when COVID began its spread, giving him space and time to reflect. Having won over many new lifelong fans on his US arena tour with 2Cellos, Matt and his band are about to embark on the EU leg of the tour, hitting some of the world’s biggest arena venues from Paris, London to Berlin and many cities in between.

We had the pleasure of interviewing Budjerah over Zoom video! Ahead of his first international tour this month, Budjerah reveals the moody official video for his latest single “Get Down”. The track is featured on his second EP Conversations, out now via Warner Records. On “Get Down,” producer Matt Corby’s sparkling, glitched-out synths give way to one of Conversations’ most affecting songs, a sleek jam whose ebb-and-flow melody underscores lyrics about anxiously forging forward through one’s youth. “’Get Down’ is about the idea that I’ve come so far now, I have to keep going, it’s too late to stop what I’m doing now,” Budjerah says. “If there’s a way, please show me how,” he sings on the track, a spiritual plea amidst a song suffused with an ultramodern atmosphere. On the recently released Conversations EP, Budjerah reunites with longtime producers Matt Corby and Chris Collins, as well as new collaborators MAY-A and Konstantin Kersting. The EP - which features previously released singles “Talk” with MAY-A, “Wash My Sorrows Away” and “What Should I Do?” - reveals a darker, sleeker sound for Budjerah, reflective of the changes that have occurred in his life. In 2020, Australia was introduced to the spectacular voice of Budjerah: a new, homegrown R&B star. Possessing songwriting ingenuity and old-soul wisdom, it quickly became abundantly clear that, for a lot of us, Budjerah was the kind of figure we’d been missing.

2022-05-1001:01:23

We had the pleasure of interviewing St. Lucia over Zoom video!Led by husband-and-wife duo South Africa-born Jean-Philip Grobler and Germany-born Patti Beranek, St. Lucia retreat from a fractured world on fire and into the glow of a rapturous synth-spiked electro-pop catharsis—like a dance party at the edge of existence. Now signed to Nettwerk Records, the group beams out a light of their own and shines brighter than ever. “In a way, this is my personal rebellion against the darkness of the world,” states Jean-Philip. “It’s easy to feel depressed these days, so I’m trying to bring something joyous to the world. I was sick of seeing shit on the Internet, and I just wanted to feel good. That’s what being human is about. We have to feel alive, despite whatever the fuck is going on.” St. Lucia has always stirred these kinds of emotions. It started with When The Night, which boasted fan favorites like “Elevate,” “All Eyes On You,” and “Closer Than This,” entered the Billboard Top 200 and hit #6 on Billboard’s Heatseekers Album chart. Its follow-up Matter, yielded the hit “Dancing On Glass,” while the band collaborated with artists ranging from Jack Antonoff to RAC. Two years later, Hyperion represented a creative and critical high watermark with praise from Billboard, who hailed the album as “buoyant,” and PopMatters who raved, “it feels revelatory.” “When you listen to this, I hope you feel inspired and like life is worth living,” Jean leaves off. Patti adds, “it unleashes things, and I think we did a good job capturing that.” We want to hear from you!

We had the pleasure of interviewing Duquette Johnston over Zoom video!Duquette Johnston has shared "Mystics," an ode to the enduring strength of unconditional love and the emotional toll we face when nearly losing it. Written by the Birmingham, Alabama musician for his wife and creative partner Morgan, the song centers on finding beauty in those unbreakable bonds when it feels like everything else around you is falling apart. For Duquette and Morgan, this came as they built their lives together with a focus on giving back in the aftermath of his treacherous cycle through Alabama's prison system - and once again years later as Morgan developed a life-threatening condition after becoming pregnant with their first child. A founding member of the breakout 90s indie band Verbena, Johnston got his musical start signing to Merge Records and touring alongside other ascendant acts of the era like The Strokes and Foo Fighters. In the years that followed, a non-violent drug charge found him stuck in a prison system more focused on "zero tolerance" than recovery and rehabilitation - an experience that's led Johnston to become a vocal advocate for prison reform in his home state of Alabama. With only a select few album releases since leaving prison for the last time in the mid-2000s, The Social Animals marks Duquette's first new record since 2013 and finds him reuniting with friends and collaborators from his indie rock past; including producer John Agnello (Dinosaur Jr, Hop Along, Waxahatchee, Twin Peaks, Kurt Vile) and a band anchored by longtime Sonic Youth drummer Steve Shelley. The results are a sonic world of spiraling guitars, cavernous beats and Johnston's deeply-learned lessons on the idea that "we can lift each other up. We can change things if we keep our hearts in the right place.”Johnston has previously shared the advance singles "Year To Run" and "To My Daughters" from the record. We want to hear from you!

We had the pleasure of interviewing Bestfriend over Zoom video!Canadian bedroom pop duo Bestfriend are back. After their wildly successful EP, places i've lived, the duo announce a sister EP, places i've left, and share the lead single "Someplace Else," a dreamy bedroom pop bop. Nostalgic, romantic, and sugary sweet, "Someplace Else" is all about crushing on someone, and frankly, "It might be the most purely happy song we have ever written, really," the band notes. Leading listeners into a dreamy soundscape of lush, atmospheric synths and layers upon layers of rich harmonies, Bestfriend's latest single is the perfect prologue to their forthcoming EP, due out this summer. Written and produced entirely by the duo and mixed by Grammy-nominated Travis Ference (Ariana Grande, Tori Kelly, Imagine Dragons), places i’ve left leaves us where their debut EP places i've lived left us: lovestruck, yearning, and filled with a sun-drenched, bittersweet nostalgia. Bestfriend's debut EP, places i've lived, came out last October, to reach critical acclaim from Under The Radar, Line of Best Fit, Earmilk, DIVA, and more. A love letter to all of the experiences and people from Bestfriend’s young adult lives, places i've lived is heavily inspired by storytelling songwriters like Lorde, The National, Big Thief and Julia Jacklin, with production inspired by Bleachers, FINNEAS, The 1975, Rina Sawayama. Created remotely, with Stacy on the west coast and Kaelan in the east, Stacy would write songs, create rough demos and send them to Kaelan who would then produce it from there, passing it back and forth between each other to add/detract elements. Since its release, duo have been featured on Spotify's Lorem, Bedroom Pop, and my life is a movie playlists, amassing over 1,500,000 streams within the first 4 months of release. For more on the story behind the music, check out Bestfriend's exclusive interview with The Line of Best Fit and Luna Collective. We want to hear from you!
