Song of the Day: Haunting Me – HEBE

Rising artist HEBE tackles her fears and anxieties head-on with empowering soulful electro-pop single ‘Hunting Me’, the first release from her forthcoming debut album ‘Cards On The Table’, planned for release in Spring 2020.

Hailing from Amsterdam, the talented artist has been collaborating with some of the Netherlands’ finest musicians. Credits for this cut see award-winning producer/mixer Huub Reijnders, drummer Martijn Bosman, pianist and vocalist Ruben Hein contributing to the harmonious contrast of warm, catchy vocals set to pulsating electro-pop drums and synths.

Speaking of the release, HEBE reveals: ‘Hunting Me’ tells the story of a vivid dream in which the artist faces her own demons; “I could feel these fears so clearly but couldn’t see or grab them. In ‘Hunting Me’ I try to make these fears tangible by giving them a face,” 

HEBE’s previously released EPs, ‘The Beginning’ and the internationally acclaimed ‘Tell Me’, have garnered upwards of a million streams on Spotify, and have seen support from international tastemakers including The 405, Impose Magazine, Noctis Magazine, Earmilk, Vice and Music Week, whilst receiving airplay from Hoxton Radio, Fubar Radio and Reprezent Radio. This early international approval culminated in HEBE performing at the prestigious Metropolis Studios and at London’s renowned Camden Assembly, whilst back in her own country, HEBE has already performed on national TV and radio shows.

‘Hunting Me’ gives an insight into her unique sensibility and sound; just one piece of a puzzle which will cement her status as a bonafide songwriting talent….Check her out below…

Song of the Day: Place – Mar

Championed by Jamz Supernova on BBC Radio 1Xtra for his collaboration with Full Crate on EP ‘A Woman’, MAR is now ready to assume centre stage status with this latest project entitled ‘Place’. Billowing, thick and heavy mood-scapes, ‘Place’ is the first release from his forthcoming EP, ‘Things Will Be’. The five-track EP is described as ‘a soundtrack to experience when one is alone’.

Hailing from Amsterdam, raised on a houseboat, surrounded by music from a young age, rhythm runs in this R&B artist’s blood. Mastering instruments under his late father’s watchful eye ,MAR’s sister and mother would sing whilst his father played the guitar and bass, all to the backing of budding artist’s percussions.

Citing his greatest musical influences as Bjork and Prince, MAR has seized the opportunities provided by this EP to evolve a fresh new approach to his sound. MAR‘s musical range has progressed from layered electronic to pop, distorted trap and rock music, via previous releases ‘Seeing Her Naked’, ‘Form’ and ‘When We Meet’.

‘Things Will Be’ EP will be out 23rd November…but for now, listen to this irresistible single.

Song of the Day: Opera – Adilson Evora

Throughout the three-and-a-half-minute track, Adilson not only spews his discontent with the industry standards but also shows respect to all the artists who remain true to themselves and true to their art while trying to “make it” in the music industry.

‘Opera’ taken from ADILSON EVORA’s debut album ‘Under The Bridge’ which will be released later this year…look out for that!
