OUT TODAY: Eva Rawlings Shares Single, ‘5 Steps’

Following her singles ‘LIKE ME’ and ‘Tell Me What You Like,’ Pop/R&B artist EVA RAWLINGS returns with her empowering breakup anthem, ‘5 Steps.’ Inspired by an ex’s bad post-breakup behavior, ‘5 Steps’ showcases Eva’s passionate vocals set to a driving trap beat. Crafted with 11x platinum producer Ian Kimmel, the track delivers a catchy, danceable chorus while tapping into the bitter experience of seeing an ex move on.

Eva says of the track, “My idea was to write one of those counting down songs that went viral, but make it not corny. I liked the idea of writing a snarky song to your ex who got over you way too fast, spelling out what they must have done to be doing fine so quickly after the breakup. So many great producers and writers helped make this song what it is, and we finished it that day, so from the inception of the concept to it being mixed and mastered was less than 24 hours.”

A passionate social activist and feminist, Eva’s’ latest single, ‘LIKE ME,’ was created entirely by women, with streaming proceeds from the single pledged to U.S. abortion funds. She also organized and performed in a fundraiser show with other Berklee acts raising money for an organization to end gun violence. Eva continues to empower listeners with her latest single, ‘5 Steps,’ which is out now across platforms. Have a listen below….

Song of the Day: Bob N Bits – Anticalm

Rising rapper ANTICALM is ready to make himself known as one of the most distinctive voices from the UK with his ferocious debut single, ‘Bobs n’ Bits’. The destructive blend of raw and playful storytelling delivers a fresh take on modern rap alongside his production partner Samuel D. Samuel recently worked with Mogwai’s Stuart Braithwaite who had a number 1 album with the band in 2021.

As soon as the track begins, it demonstrates the influences of hip-hop, grime and punk. ANTICALM is assured as he delivers his tongue-in-cheek lyrics, whilst the futuristic production hooks in the listener with a caustic blend of heavy bass and piercing synths, which gives the track its distinct edge.

Discussing the playful nature of the track, ANTICALM shares: “I walked past a discount shop called bits n bobs when I was living in Manny! Walked home, flipped the chorus and recorded the track that day. Everyone talks about doing bits round here, me, I don’t do bits, I do bobs and bits. Simple!”

The talented rapper tackles his own performances with a similar carefree vigour and passion as his influences Scarlxrd, Slowthai, Plan B, Yungblud and Rage Against The Machine. It’s forward thinking, it’s chaotic, it’s rowdy, it’s powerful. Simply put, ANTICALM just may be the rap scene’s long-awaited answer.

OUT TODAY: Rising Artist JVSTN. Shares Genre-Bending Single, ‘LOST & FOUND’

With his new single, New York-based pop artist JVSTN. continues his journey into a synthy, sample-based pop sound, but this time experiments with Hip Hop and Psychedelic elements. After the successful release of his first original song earlier this year, JVSTN. is excited to build his discography with another ethereal creation.

Out today, ‘LOST & FOUND’ started when he attended the Governor’s Ball music festival in NYC 2021, his first festival since the beginning of COVID. JVSTN. wanted to capture the feeling of looking around the crowd and seeing lovers kiss, friends smile, and strangers groove to the same beat. He cuts these dopamine-heavy emotions with more depressive and anxious thoughts in the verses and bridge to build up to a psychedelic explosion in the song’s third act. This song was co-written with his longtime writing partner and friend, Charlie Aldrich.

‘LOST & FOUND’ follows JVSTN.’s previous well received offering, ‘Dancing With The Enemy’, an euphoric formula of layered sampled vocals, trip-hop-like beats and an elegant topline. The Brooklyn-based pop hero manages to deliver a track that will appease not only big playlists and radio outlets, but also listeners on the edgier part of the spectrum, effectively bridging the gap to art-pop.

‘LOST & FOUND’ is out today on various music platforms… Check out the official video for the single below…
