QUOTE

“In the studio, I was able to tap into a more bold side of songwriting, one that simultaneously demands attention while still feeling evasive. I spent about an hour alone without anyone else in the room, left with a melody and a blank sheet of paper. I thought about things I'd wished to write about but never did. The feeling of feminine power, confidence, and bravery were all key emotions that played into the creation of this song. That's when Woman was born. ."

BIOGRAPHY

Based out of Michigan, Maddy Hartson’s speciality is alternative pop that seamlessly blends midwestern grit and rustic glam. The key facet connecting the two styles is found in her work ethic that has delivered skills of exceptional songcraft at a young age.

The cornerstone of her creations is the simple ethos that there is beauty all around us if we are willing to look just under the surface. While the catalogue Maddy Hartson has released clearly demonstrates that she can relentlessly roll out ‘song of the year’ contenders, her dynamic live performances leave no doubt she’s the real deal. Hartson’s onstage reputation is of someone who commands every stage and invites every crowd to a unique reality for the night. The experience is a cathartic one that dissolves every tether of cynicism in its path.

Having garnered 10k Spotify Streams for each of her releases so far, expect 2021 to be the year Maddy Hartson grows into the mainstream pop scene.

All The Queen`s Horses – Raised By Wolves (Video)

“This song will stay with you forever, even if one day will be lost in your playlist, -Raised By Wolves- remind that myself suddenly burst into life. Dark energy waves of mainstream rock music.”

“Эта песня останется с вами навсегда, даже если однажды она потеряется в вашем плейлисте, -Raised By Wolves- напомнит о себе внезапно ворвавшись в вашу жизнь. Тёмные энергетические волны мейнстрима рок музыки.”

Artist shared few words with us behind the inspiration of this song:

“I tried to colour in a scenario of someone who has been constantly let down. They can usually just swallow it and are resilient but on this occasion something changed and they’re not accepting it and they go very dark and no matter where they go their baggage comes with them.” All The Queen’s Horses

About:

All The Queen’s Horses is a dark indie project by Cork artist Sean William Murphy. A signature blitz of sadness, darkness and poetry esque lyrics to a backdrop of piano, cello and some Joy Division synths. All The Queen’s Horses recently signed and teamed up with Echoism and Motor Music to release the new upcoming album, ‘The Dark Below & The Isle of Dogs’. The poetry of Leonard Cohen, the madness of Tom Waits and the intensity of Joy Division with subtle hints of Bright Eyes and Damien Rice. A Hieronymus Bosch hellscape transmuted to music, but there’s more, like Freidrich Neitze taking a day off to pick flowers, making sure he wasn’t followed. All The Queen’s Horses’ gothic folktronica evokes a desperate and beautiful darkness, a world we can escape to, where our fears and desires intertwine like rope around the subject of an Araki photograph. A very unique, out of box experience for those that enjoy different takes on the singer songwriter genre. After a year of global turmoil singer-songwriter Sean Murphy, has channeled this swirling darkness into a hauntingly beautiful album: ‘The Dark Below & The Isle of Dogs’. Originally from Cork, Ireland, living in Dublin and having spent the last 12 months in London, Sean Murphy has seen this last disastrous year through the lens of an artist. Working under the moniker ‘ALL THE QUEEN`S HORSES’, Murphy has crafted a raw, guttural and emotive response to what he has observed as a darkness bleeding across the land and in to all of our lives. A twisted narrative is weaved in folktronica-rock; a patchwork of poetry, cello, synths and mournful pianos. A kind of warped, contemporary tapestry, the story of 2020 unfolds in low light and fun-house mirrors.

Abc Dialect – You (Spotify)

“"You" can be seen as a sound elixir and maybe among those we usually look for a long time. Focusing on Chillwave synth soundscapes, offers that lost inner peace and balance. For "Abc Dialect" there are no limitations in production and this becomes obvious in this track.”

-Nagamag.com

March 24 — Abc Dialect share their latest single "You" out now on Casablanca Sunset.

Stream: smarturl.it/AbcDialectYou

"You" is the second release from the group’s forthcoming debut LP titled 'Out Here.' The album was co-produced by Daniel Nentwig of The Whitest Boy Alive and Kings of Convenience at Butterama Studios in Berlin and is slotted for release later in 2021.

Out Here's 6th track,"You" feels like an introspective daydream. The song is accompanied by warm whimsical falsetto vocals, glistening guitar chords, swooning synthesizers and rhythm subtly influenced by aspects of Samba and Latin jazz. It’s a unique offering that at moments is also reminiscent of late 80s/early 90s R&B (think Sade) meets some of the modern-day elements of indie/bedroom pop. Lyrically the song is about looking up into the sky at night feeling heartbroken but also hopeful of the future.

Abc Dialect is comprised of Argentinian songwriters Luca Oliva Knight and Tomas Susevich. Together the young beatmakers draw on their diverse musical influences (90s house, 70s funk, soulful jazz, R&B, & more) to craft original thought-provoking melodies that evoke a sense of emotions including nostalgia, euphoria, empathy, sorrow and more. Previous releases have received support from a variety of music outlets online like Delicieuse Musique, Indie Shuffle, Acid Stag, Noon Pacific, Tensnake, Disco Naïveté, Bristol Funk and more.

Gilligan Moss – Special Thing (Spotify)

“Gilligan Moss deliver a really "special thing". Original House vibe with some disco elements. Prototype ideas carefully presented and catchy title for the majority of listeners outhere.”

-Nagamag.com

“Special Thing,” was written as an ode to our French predecessors - robots and monoliths alike. There’s something deeply hypnotic about a filtered vocal loop and chord progression, but it can sometimes feel like trying to bottle lightning. Simple songs are often the hardest, and in true collaborative fashion it’s a tune that Ben rescued from Evan’s trash pile - we’re glad he did. Grab yourself an ice cold ‘Pfizer and head down to the beach to listen to this one.

ELUNIA – Soak (Spotify)

“New single "Soak" is out now from ELUNIA. Personal electronic style and crystal clear singing reveal something more than a typical song. Noticeable sweet transitions between melodies and lyrics, interesting pauses and courage-giving feelings are some highlights of this work.”

-Nagamag.com

"Soak" is the newest offering from the New Hampshire hailing artist ​ELUNIA​, whose release follows an impressive debut dropped back in January of this year. Loaded with ethereal textures and nostalgic synth sounds, "Soak" is a triumphant alt-pop single that is both commercial and cinematic in its production. The single was produced by ​ELUNIA and refined by multi-million streamed producer ​JMAC (​Luz​, ​Matilda​ ​Mann​, ​Haux, Rosie​ ​Carney).

Discussing the single ​ELUNIA​ explains:

“S​oak came about in the morning after a concert, just as the euphoria was fading. I had felt so alone for so long while struggling with anxiety and isolation caused by bullying and exclusion over the years, and I suddenly felt like someone had injected life into me. I had discovered this secret, special world of music that only I could know, only I could experience where I felt like I actually existed and mattered. It was a world that gave me highs without chemicals, while others felt like they needed substances and destructive habits to achieve that same feeling. I would desperately hold onto those moments and make them last as long as possible, and though that helped me cope, there was a part of me that knew I was idealizing the people I encountered and the experiences I had. I wrote Soak as a way to preserve those moments trying to hold onto positive memories before they slipped away and reality flooded back in.”

Her debut single "Borderlines" has received notable acclaim from the blog community and has picked up over 17,000 ​streams on Spotify since its release.

facebook.com/eluniamusic

When reality became too much, ELUNIA created an alternative existence. A singer-songwriter-producer executing all of her own visuals, the New Hampshire-based recording artist captures the endless meaning of human interaction as an immersive experience. Each track delves beneath the surface, with striking electronic textures, soaring melodies, and observant, probing lyrics.

Although trained in music from an early age, it was the discovery of transforming feelings into creative entities that inspired the emerging songsmith to chart a different path. The multi-instrumentalist began writing and producing incessantly, hiding away in school practice rooms as a coping mechanism for the isolation she faced in the world around her. Fragments of thought, often noted in the midst of heart-wrenching moments, evolved into ethereal, liquid atmospheres. The result is a flood of wild self-expression channeled through thoughtfully-molded soundscapes.

In 2018, a chance conversation with multi-million streamed producer JMAC led to the materialization of her debut single “Borderlines”, a swirling, thumping examination of the toxic patterns associated with an artificial, forced sense of identity. Relatable phrases such as “I’m alive but I don’t fit into reality” tackle her struggle with mental health in an extroverted society and the mind-numbing effect of being in a creatively stifling environment. The rejection of social norms gave rise to music that defies labels.

Delamare, Ivy-Jane Browne – Wasting Time (Spotify)

“"Wasting time" is the Indie Electronic work of two artists and your free time companion. Listen at the end of a stressful day and it will take away any kind of negative energy. Also the singing is so elegant that no words can describe it.”

-Nagamag.com

Californian future pop producer Delamare is here with the effortlessly cool vocal stylings of Ivy-Jane Browne for their glistening new single, ‘Wasting Time’.

When it comes to Delmare, the producer has swooned listeners with his beautifully catchy approach to remixing. With a knack for melodies that become earworms, he has quickly built millions of listeners with his re-interpretations of artists including Mazde, LissA, BOKEH, Sparrows and Mothica.

Arkson – Victory (Video)

“Your favourite guitar chords, piano keys and powerful drums form the sound of “Victory”. Energetic, intense and uplifting composition followed by the expressive singing of Arkson. That progression and very sophisticated transition techniques also reveal a big talent.”

-Nagamag.com

David Park, leader of the Toronto, Canada-based indie-rock band Arkson, is keenly equipped to capture the kinetic energy of now. He is a classical and jazz trained composer with an education in film composition, his diverse background enables him to honor many rich heritages while bursting through temporal and genre boundaries. Fittingly, his upcoming series of singles are eclectically standalone.

www.facebook.com/arksonmusic

“I prefer to think that each is song is its own unique moment, and I aim to make them feel different. I like the idea of not looking back and just pushing ahead with constant fresh inspiration,” David notes.

Arkson’s dynamic musicality evokes artists such as Arcade Fire, Arkells, and Imagine Dragons. Arkson songs are ambitiously arranged and densely layered with textures and musical motifs, yet the tracks also brim with unforgettable hooks. David self-produces the music, and handles performing most of the instruments on all the tracks.

instagram.com/arksonmusic

David formed Arkson in 2015 when he was still in high school and, since then, Arkson has released 3 EPs, 2 singles, and performed at some Toronto’s most prestigious small venues, including the Horseshoe Tavern and the Monarch Tavern. Arkson was set to be travelling to Portugal in the summer of 2020 as ambassadors for the Bracara Cup in Braga, as they were recently asked to write and perform the inaugural tournament anthem for July 2020. Unfortunately, the tournament has been postponed due to COVID-19.

David’s lyrics seek to frame the divide between past and present, and to capture the moments he experiences. This thematic through line may have something to do with this family, who moved around often as he was growing up. “It gave me a perspective that I don’t think you get when you are stationary. Permanent things felt temporary for me. I always had to make new friends, and I had a feeling like I didn’t belong anywhere but could also fit in everywhere,” he shares.

The single, Victory, was written to be the anthem song for Lank FC and the Bracara Cup in Portugal for the summer of 2020. The song is impactfully arranged, building from ethereal indie rock to emotive anthemics before climaxing with opulent orchestral final chorus. “It is meant to be an intense, energetic pump-up song which captures the spirit of sport—pushing as hard as you can towards the goal, never giving up, and never stopping,” David says. Its words viscerally capture the quest for excellence. Key lyrics include: Shooting high, shooting low/Running fast, thinking slow/We’re fighting till the end, and we’ll do it all again/If I fall before the goal, you’ll see me crawling for it all, And we’ll do it all again.
