alexmaax – Bets Off (Spotify)

Amazing depth style of voice and beautiful music layering in this new song of Alexmaax.

Burgeoning artist alexmaax, the solo project of Los Angeles-based producer Max Hershenow (known for his work as half of two alternative pop duos, MS MR and Post Precious) gets ready to share his debut single "Bets Off" and accompanying video next week!

Max first got his start in music while studying at Vassar College and the Martha Graham School of Dance, where he began writing music to accompany his choreographies. Soon after graduation he started MS MR with Lizzy Plapinger and it quickly took off. After signing to Columbia Records in 2011, the band toured internationally for 5 years and performed at most major festivals, including Lollapalooza, Splendour in the Grass, Glastonbury and the main stage at Coachella. Since MS MR, Max has channelled his focus into production and writing projects with other artists- namely Charli XCX, Ryn Weaver, Nakhane, Francisca Valenzuela- and has also scored dance and film pieces.

As a queer artist discovering his own voice, Max was inspired by other artists like Perfume Genius, ANHONI, and the Knife, to create something that felt genuinely like his own. He began work on his first solo project in 2018 and is here now with "Bets Off," the first track from the forthcoming EP. For the first time in his music career, Max has embraced his insecurities and let them shine in this body of work.

He shares, "I always thought of myself as a potential vocalist. I was convinced there was this voice deep inside me that just needed to be unlocked in the right way. But I was insecure about its rough edges, and gradually developed a complex around singing. Eventually I resigned myself to being a producer and songwriter, even telling my mom to stop asking when I was going to start singing because it made me too sad. But the urge didn't really go away, and over the past few years a few things changed: MS MR came to a gradual end (or hiatus or whatever), and I started working with a vocal teacher who encouraged me to explore the outer edges of my voice in a freer way. I learned to face my voice with curiosity and playfulness instead of dread. I started hearing it differently, relaxing into its strangeness and specificity, nuance and limitations. Little by little I understood how to strengthen and nurture it."...

Altamullan Road – Underwater (Video)

Altamullan Road – Underwater

Gearing up for the release of their mesmerizing debut album due in
the fall of 2020, Altamullan Road, fronted by the sublime voices of
Johanna Kurkela and Johanna Iivanainen already gave us a peek
into their world of wonders with their 1st single “When It’s Time”.

There may be no return after the 2nd, saturnine “Underwater”.
With “Underwater” the supernatural sisters paint a gloomy picture
of a deathwish bittersweetly mixing with hope. A musical canvas
resounding with echoes, the song is sparsely colored with firm,
broad strokes and eerie harmonies. The song weaves an intricate
network of gossamer melodies and submerges the listener in
gothic, melancholic bliss. As light and airy as the singing appears at
the outset, the lyrical message lies clandestine, anticipating just
below the monochrome surface for you to dive in.

“Underwater” is a pensive tide, lying in wait to wash over you.
Altamullan Road is the silent wail of angels becoming the darkness,
the grief of waning memories and the faint flickering of candles in
the dark.

Danksy's concept took place in Ramallah, West Bank paying homage to the artist Banksy and his artwork/activism inspired during my stay in the middle east for over a year.

The music video shows spray painting on the separation fence between Palestine and Israel in the beginning -

The song takes the listener on a journey to stand up to the "New Normal" and to have courage during times of uncertainty even if it means taking it on alone

It was a process establishing the foundation of the song and the overall structure - This is part of the reason it is a 6:40 journey with multiple pathways.

Carson C Lee is a lofi/chillhop rap producer from Michigan. Initially, he started making hip-hop beats and writing intricate lyrics to help aspiring artists as a side hustle. This grew into an opportunity to intern for Wu Music Group and expand into a wide variety of creative endeavors. After living in the Middle East, he decided to pursue his passion of music full time. In addition, he is an ESL instructor teaching kids across the world while providing a fresh perspective on Youtube for up-and-coming artists to gain knowledge and insight in music entrepreneurship.

Indie-pop sensation JONES stuns with her new release "Giving It Up," an intoxicating re-introduction to the east-Londoner. "Giving It Up" is out now.

JONES - neé Cherie Jones-Mattis - oozes personality and elegance in equal measure.

JONES was raised by her mother in Aldgate, London. She spent her childhood immersed in the music of Stevie Wonder and Bob Marley, while JONES' early idols included Mariah Carey and Whitney Houston. Attending a local community arts centre as a teenager provided the impetus for her to delve into songwriting.

She often performed at open mic nights as a way of building her confidence as a live performer and eventually made quite an impression on one witness who introduced her to various people in the music industry. Soon to follow was her first contract and a whirlwind of experiences, including touring and recording with HONNE, sharing a table with Tom Jones ahead of her Jools Holland performance and headlining London Omeara.

Since then, JONES has focused on mastering her ability to own any genre she turns her hand to, be it pop, rock, delicate balladry or left-of-centre R&B.

Three-and-a-half years since the release of her debut album and JONES is back and recharged with new single "Giving It Up." Effortlessly cool vocals pair well with alt-pop production, celestial synths, and catchy lyrics. Airy vocals croon "All night I'm giving it up, that's right I'm giving it up..." making for an undoubtedly catchy track. One listen and you'll have this one stuck in your head for days.
