New Track: Strangers – Selci

Following the release of the dreamy video for lead single ‘Truth in the Sea’,  alt-pop producer SELCI  shares second single, ‘Strangers’, taken from her debut ‘Effervescence’ EP, due out independently on 28th August.

The latest single perfectly displays the Calgary artist’s prowess as a budding electronic producer abounds. In a series of flashbacks, SELCI recalls the painful process of breaking up as each verse playing out like a final, one-sided exchange and desperate plea for an answer.

Over the past year, SELCI has shared bills with Neon Indian and Ryan Hemsworth and played festivals such as Canadian Music Week, Sled Island Music & Arts Festival, Big Fun Festival, and more. Her Effervescence Tour will cross Canada in October of 2019.

New Track: Golden Hell – Ruben Young

RUBEN YOUNG wrote his recently released single, ‘Golden Hell’ last summer at the time when the Canadian singer felt he was losing the perspective on his career and life. Although it displays moments of tension, uncertainty and chaos, ‘Golden Hell’ is accompanied with a contrastingly smooth R&B/Soul-esque tone, further sweeten with speckles of angelic overtones, contributed by producers, The Lost Boys.

The indie soulful songster experienced his taste of recognition back in 2017, after releasing his first three singles which amassed over two million streams and earned opening slots for artists like The Chainsmokers, Akon, and Classified. To date, Ruben’s music charted across platforms in multiple genres including Spotify Viral Canada (#13), Hype Machine Global (#8), and iTunes’ Electronic (#4), R&B (#8) and Pop (#28) categories.
