The Sweet Kill – Forbidden (Spotify)

“In the advanced single -Letters to a Vampire- focusing on experimental mainstream rock music, you'll find -Forbidden-. Track full of harmony and rhythmic artistic images, also a bright representative of the experimental avant-garde.”

The 3 song EP “Letters To A Vampire” starts with the song “Forbidden” co-written by NYC based chanteuse Danielle Parente, Flash Bastard member Donal Finn and The Sweet Kill's frontman Pete Mills. We all tapped into an otherworldly energy but with only a few days to finish we did the best we could in a short time. A lot of sync houses liked the song but it never landed anywhere. Thus it was put on the back burner until the pandemic hit. In the early stages of lockdown I experienced a wide range of emotions. I saw my mortality and reflected back to turbulent times, which lead to me getting sober. Through this perspective I felt compelled to revisit and rework “Forbidden”. I made it faster, changed the arrangement, added a new chorus and ultimately gutted the production. The thematic narration involves a lustful couple caroming around in the darkness engaging the powerful elements of love. “…Maybe we were wrong to do it, or just sick for what we need, maybe we were outcasts all along, but every night the sun sets slowly, my darkened heart controls me, sucked into the black hole of your arms …Forbidden lust”

The Sweet Kill is a one-man dark pop synth project swelling with emotion. The diviner of this millenarian angst is lead-singer, multi-instrumentalist and producer Pete Mills; who portrays toxic love, desperation and redemption from the throes of addiction. After the suicide of his band mate, and personal battles with addiction, Pete speaks of liberation from inner demons.

The Sweet Kill delivers an atmospheric quietus and infectious hooks similar to Awolnation and MGMT, matched with the bulletproof production of The Cure and Nine Inch Nails. The latest releases feature the drumming of Darren King (Mutemath), mixer Dave “Rave” Ogilvie (Marilyn Manson) and co-producer Voli (Bebe Rexha).

Prior to the conception of The Sweet Kill, Mills had an extensive career in the music industry, signing with Nikki Sixx's label with his former band Flash Bastard and getting kicked off the North American Motley Crue tour. Ulitimately moving to Los Angeles, Pete diverged into a producing career, beginning with a co-production credit for SoulKid1's smash hit song "We Got More Bounce In California" with Michael Patterson (Black Rebel Motorcycle Club).

This single's notoriety captured the attention of local labels which transitioned Pete into a successful producing career working with a myriad of artists including Sheryl Crow, Moving Units, Teddy Riley to name a few. The latest releases of The Sweet Kill marks Pete's meteoric re-entry back into the spotlight of performing again.

Edith – Over It (Spotify)

“Imperishable synthpop from a young and charming singer Edith and her new single No Matter What You Do (Home Sessions). Sincere emotions, passionate love and hate burdening lyrical performance of Edith.”

“Нетленный synthpop от молодой и обворожительной певицы Edith и её нового сингла No Matter What You Do (Home Sessions). Искренние эмоции, пылкая любовь и отягощающая ненависть в лирическом исполнении Edith.”

-Nagamag.com

Edith shared with us few words behind this song:

“I wrote Over It at a point in my life where I was completely and utterly over not just an ex-boyfriend but some people and situations that never served me any good. That feeling is truly the best, and you can rant over and over again to your friends about these frustrations but unfortunately, you’re never going to be truly released until you let yourself feel those emotions and move on. It is the first song I wrote and recorded for this album. One of my favourite sayings is ‘You have to bleed to grow’ and honestly it has been the backbone to my growth and journey so far. I want people to know that being vulnerable is a sign of strength, and even though Over It is a party song, the album has a few records in which a breakup is seen from a different perspective, from the perspective of loss and regret. There are days when we miss that person and days when we don’t feel a thing, which is why I love writing about my emotions and connecting with people through similar experiences. “

Sivilian’s love for storytelling resonates throughout his recent foray onto the international music scene. His melancholic vocals weave secret messages across an elaborate soundscape of synths and samples.

The single «Invisible to Automatic Doors» marked his debut on the international music scene. Usually writing his songs on an acoustic guitar, he initially struggled to bring his latest pop vision to paper. It was an impromptu phone recording of automatically closing doors in the Budapest metro that finally brought him the breakthrough. Used as a sample throughout the track, these subway doors ended up setting the musical foundation.

Harry Nathan – Last Call (Spotify)

“Are you worried about losing your other half? Do you find yourself dissapointed of an unexpected change in a personal relationship? This "Last Call" can release from any fear of loss, because in fact we own nothing at all.”

-Nagamag.com

Australian artist Harry Nathan closed out 2020 with news of his upcoming EP “Songs About Falling” while also sharing its first single ‘High’ (released via Majestic Casual Records). He’s coming back to us this month with that EP’s second single ‘Last Call’.

Throughout all of the songs on this new EP, Harry draws nostalgic inspiration via 80’s drum machines and synthesisers, reminiscent of Todd Terje, Client Liaison and Touch Sensitive. For the story behind this particular song, the singer/songwriter and producer portrays a tale of emotional heartache, written via the viewpoint of his close friend..

“I wrote this song from the perspective of one of my best friends, who was going through a tricky break up. Matters of the heart are never easy, we’ve all been in that situation where a once loving relationship nears its fatal end. We scramble for clarity in the abyss as our world shifts into the emotional unknown.”

"The song wrote itself in an hour. Mr. Moustache was at my place in LA and showing me some instrumental ideas, I heard "Last Call" and the lyrics and story began pouring out of me."– Harry Nathan

A few words that come to mind while listening to ‘Last Call’ are “smooth”, “nostalgic” and “dreamy” just to name a few, and that can all easily be associated with the 80’s drum machines and synthesisers that Harry has used throughout the EP.

‘Last Call’ is one of those songs that would perfectly suit a late-night cruise through a city or coastal road on a warm summer’s eve.

Stay tuned for the “Songs About Falling” EP, scheduled for release in March 2021.
