Earmilk Premieres Sky Keller

Sky Keller's new single, "Weekend," produced by Danny Garibay (Justin Tranter, The Ceremonies) and co-written by Alma Goodman, is here just in time for...the weekend. 

Earmilk says, "Keller becomes heartbreakingly exposed on this electro-pop tune and it's a wonderful display of the vulnerability found in her songwriting."

Sky explains, "'Weekend' is about an unattainable love. It's about wanting someone who is unavailable but for some reason this person (you desire) still keeps you around in some capacity. I really hoped I'd be able to change her mind, but in the end, she wanted nothing more than to have fun." 

Atwood Magazine Premieres The Habits

"Un-cuffing" season is among us and The Habits are getting us ready for those long summer days that seamlessly turn into night with the release of their new track "Calling Me Up." 

Atwood Magazine says, "The Habits' new song is a special combination of love and tension: The kind of song that says exactly what it needs to say, capturing all the little things while weaving a wide net that everyone can relate to...Brimming with euphoric indie pop energy and frenetic, love-fueled passion, The Habits' 'Calling Me Up' dives into the pain of keeping the spark alive when the lights are already out."

The Little Miss Releases Poignant Song

The Little Miss has completely charmed us with her rootsy, hearty, and genuine sound and she's bringing a powerful message to the table with her new single "American Dream." 

Imperfect Fifth wrote about the song here

The Little Miss explains,"I wrote 'American Dream' at a time when the tension in our country felt palpable. This was five years ago. Now, seemingly more divided than ever, I questioned whether or not I should release a song that sounds so blindly idealistic. To be clear, "American Dream" is not an endorsement of this country as it stands now. I don't think that it is unpatriotic to think that we can do better than this. The American Dream, as it has been fed to us - Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness - has not delivered on its promises for many (if not most of us). So, while the song yearns for this made-up, sepia-toned time that never existed, it notes exactly that: that it never existed. We're enchanted by our own, but very limited folklore - the pioneers, the Wild West, the civil war, the nuclear family, the moon landing, etc. We have romantic notions about who we are and who we've been, and it is tempting, for all of us, to want to wear those rose-colored glasses. But in order to become better, and in order to progress, we need to take off the glasses and take a good look in the mirror. We all want the same thing: to feel proud of the country we call home - we just need to accept the fact that it might be healthier to learn from our history rather than glamorize it. The lives of so many depend on it."

Earmilk Premieres Saint Mesa

Saint Mesa has joined the Village with new single, "Murky," a hauntingly prophetic, dark, and worldly sounding track.

Earmilk says of the haunting single, "'Murky' is a three and a half minute tour de force that transports the listener...Saint Mesa paints a vibrant and visceral picture of the tense and awful beauty that is nature. This single is unique, raw, uplifting, and beautiful..." 

 

NPR Premieres Saba Abraha

Ethiopian songstress Saba Abraha continues to get us excited for the release of her forthcoming EP with her sultry, cool, and r&b-tinged sound. Enter new single "Do's & Dont's".

NPR gives an in-depth look at the track and says, "Abraha's inspirations range from Missy Elliott to Corinne Bailey Rae for, as she puts it, 'their unique approach and unwillingness to stray from their truth.' The singer employs the same sense of fearlessness with this single. These dark hues and knowing vocals of 'Do's and Dont's' serve as the foundation for the artist's forthcoming sophomore EP, due out later this year, and will help to settle the dust of a dizzied subconscious with each replay."

We Found New Music Premieres Colin Magalong

Our new heartthrob, Colin Magalong, released his slow jam, "After Hours," and if you weren't already in love with him, you certainly will be now. 

We Found New Music nails it when they write "It's minimal and it's mature in a way you don't often hear from new artist; Colin Magalong has a voice that can truly stand on its own and the songwriting to back it. It's a welcomed rawness that proves that this artist is capable of excelling in a wide range of genres." 

The Music Ninja premieres The Solarists

The Provo based indie-rock band, The Solarists, are here with their new track "Wait For It." The Solarists are bringing a little sunshine to this gloomy Monday. 

The Music Ninja calls it "A perfectly intertwined duo of dreamy, wandering verses and a rowdy-as-hell chorus, this tune catches your attention early and grips it throughout the whole ride...With a sound as infectious as theirs, it shouldn't come as a surprise when these guys really starting picking up steam." 

Atwood Magazine premieres Deanna Devore

The intoxicating and mysterious Deanna Devore is here with her new song "Seven Eight," a mesmerizing track about things turning out differently than what you expected. 

Atwood Magazine says, "Deanna Devore's hypnotic 'Seven Eight' is a somber, heavy-hearted reckoning of an ill-fated relationship layered in moving R&B melodies and warm vibes...Glowing keyboards, mellow guitars, and seductive electronics create a hazy soundscape full of space - lyricless moments for us to engage in our own poignant reflection."

Atwood Magazine Premieres Rayvin Moon

Rayvin Moon's dark, alt-pop, and cinematic sound in her new single "Lazy Sad Jesus," is exactly what you need to round out your week. 

Atwood Magazine says "Lazy Sad Jesus" is "a wake-up call dressed in red, a dark alt-pop anthem emphasizing our responsibility to, in the artist's words, be our own saviors...a majestic and provocative assertion of individual strength, power, and possibility."

We Found New Music Premieres Coleman Hell

The Canadian artist turned heads in 2015 with the release of his "2 Heads" track which currently has over 108 million streams on Spotify. Now Hell has released his new track "Killer" and well...it's just that. Killer.  

We Found New Music says, "'Killer' is a dance party waiting to happen. Hell captures the rushing feeling of intoxication, both in lyrics and in sound. It's a fresh indie-pop track that'll get you moving, spinning, and falling deep into those unforgettable nights."

Jimmy Keeps it Real with "Smile"

Jimmy intrigued us with his self-titled debut track, "Jimmy," and now he's here with his newest single, "Smile."  "Smile" feels like wandering into a misty dream. An almost eerie soundscape, "Smile" is as dark as it is vulnerable and sets the groundwork for Jimmy's commentary. He explains, "I tried to throw myself into the fucked-up dream that is the opioid epidemic in the United States and capture what I could of its hazy and ironically self-destructive fantasy."

 

Imperfect Fifth says, "Ever-impressed by the incredible talent that is Jimmy, we are delighted to share his new haunting and dark single "Smile"...It displays the power of connection, as listeners relate to the same feelings of powerlessness in a corporate world."

Give it a listen!
