More new music - 8th-14th July
Jazz Morley's 'Safe Place' is a delicate but beautiful track, brimming with confidence and vulnerability in equal measure.
English indie pop singer Jazz Morley releases soulful, emotive summer jam “Safe Place” where wistful and desire-filled thoughts are paired with a smooth synths to reflect her personal experience of returning home to the sea. The Bournemouth based artist confesses her insecurities and anxieties over a rising and heart-warming track that stylistically tips its hat towards the ebullient synth sounds of Shura and Jessie Ware. Her journey of moving past the stress from city life is reflected in the soaring climax and distinct harmonies, leading to the definitive reassurance by the raw honesty in her therapeutic voice that croons, “let me be your safe place.”
If your tastes are a little more on the punk rock side of the fence then Juiceboxxx new track 'Guts And Tension' evokes the spirit of the Beastie Boys.
"Guts And Tension", along with the previous singles "Freaking Out" and "Going To The Club", will be featured on the new LP 'Freaked Out American Loser', out 7/28 on Dangerbird Records
Soulful grunge is the order of the day with Billie Eilish's 'Copycat' - a track that perfectly showcases Billie's smouldering dusky vocals.
Yet another smouldering gem from the young singer, the song is part of her forthcoming "dont smile at me" EP which will be released worldwide on August 11th on Polydor. The track was produced by her older brother, Finneas O’Connell and is available today across all platforms. Speaking of the track, Billie explained “COPYCAT” is about when “people do everything someone else does to the point that they are not even themselves anymore.”
NSFW 'Fuck They' from Sofi Tukker is a surprisingly catchy dance track.
Indie dance duo SOFI TUKKER today shares their defiant new single "Fuck They." The bouncy, confident track was co-written with Scissor Sisters' Jake Shears and Evermore's Jon Hume. The group says "'they' is anything that holds you back from being who you are. Whoever 'they' is in your life or in your mind, Fuck They! Who's they anyway?"
The dirty guitars and percussion that kick off Arrows of Love's 'Come With Me' initially might seem a strange pairing to the almost-spoken-word delivery but give it time and its a track that eventually gels well and definitely becomes a grower.
“The song is a collection of scenarios and themes personal to me” singer Nuha Ruby Ra tells us, “Ghosts from the past, wrestles with mental health, destructive patterns and loss of control. It plays out like a scene from a film noir - the story stems from manic depressive episodes characterised by two people who are really the same person; one in highest control while one is the weakest.”
