Von Marlon Is Back With A Second Release, ‘Save It’

Following his Song of the Day debut on the blog with neon-electro single, ‘Together Forever’ back in April, VON MARLON releases brand new single, ‘Save It’, which encompasses his underground trademark of Ambient, Hip-Hop and dance.

Documenting the anticipation and patient longing for social interaction with loved ones when things return to normal, ‘Save It’ is an uptempo piece compared to previous, releases ‘Together Forever’ and ‘Closer’, as it possesses soulful-ish funky bass, reminiscent of 90s dance music.

With this hope of the world reopening, Von Marlon is looking forward to booking some more shows
around Berlin later in the year along with a newly anticipated EP in November.

Song of the Day: Together Forever – Von Marlon

After a separate personal and musical split in quick succession, VON MARLON‘s alias was formed as a solo project after living abroad. The name derives from a Mike Skinner lyric, whose music along with other underground
alternative pioneers of the UK scene greatly inspired Von Marlon’s sound, which offers a mix of
Hip-Hop, Ambient, & Dance inspired alternative pop songs.

His single ‘Together Forever’, is about the dreams and hopes one can have for a relationship, not only when dating someone but also with a greater sense of connection in general. It was created during the past year and evolved from the current global situation; the longing for when everyone can come back together again and the feeling of excitement that that moment will bring.

Garnering attention with the two singles ‘Searching’ and ‘Tripping’ on independent radio stations such as Absolute Radio and Amazing radio, Von Marlon was then featured in The Unsigned Guide’s June ’19 Spotlight, before signing a sync deal to Max Music Publishing.

From this, ‘Closer’ was synced on an episode of Queen Sugar, the US TV show broadcasted on Oprah Winfrey’s network OWN, whilst also being listed in Ditto’s ‘Chartbreaker’ Spotify playlist.

Marina Massanova’s New Single, ‘Normality’ Will Stop You Dead in Your Tracks

Untamed and brimming with raw rap energy, MARINA MASSANOVA‘s latest smash track takes us on an adrenaline-drenched thrill ride through a furious flurry of genres. From the hard-hitting hip-hop bars to the drastic flip into hardbass, here’s one song that’s bold, daring and impossible to ignore.

When she pitched the idea to her beatmaker he thought she was crazy to mix together such a whimsical selection of genres. Marina persevered though and they are both elated with the end result. It all started when she conjured up an idea for a song that questions what “normal” really is. She called up her rapper friend Chris Jenkins straight away and they wrote the song together over video call. The duo really dug deep into the darker side of themselves to pull together something that really bares her soul for all the world to see.

The Ukrainian singer-songwriter also directed the video. Dripped in cool, calm charisma, it shows her with her two friends from first grade getting into all kinds of mischief. From visuals of intercourse with an imaginary guy, to the slapping of buttocks, it really grabs your attention and stops you dead in your tracks.

So if you can handle it, why not press play on ‘Normality’ below…

Song of the Day: Better Now – Lara

Presenting LARA, a 19-year-old Australian-based keys player, singer/songwriter and producer into today’s hot spot, with her soothing self written alt-pop single, ‘Better Now’.

Classically trained on the piano since the age of eight, Lara has since diversified into R&B/soul, funk, disco, contemporary and electronic music. For the last two years, she has studied music on scholarship with Berklee College of Music in Boston and ventured out on the scene with her debut album ‘Bored Games’, released in late 2019.

2020 saw German-born Lara releasing singles, ‘Wall’ , ‘Circles’ and ‘Better Now’, with an album to follow shortly. ‘Better Now’ was chosen as the blog’s Song of the Day for its serene feather light electropop backdrop, providing the way for the guitar riffs, giving off a 70s inspired soulful rock vibe with harmonic vocals that’s reminiscent of 70’s Stevie Hicks (of Fleetwood Mac)

Jesse Jax Presents Hard-Hitting Visuals For Track, ‘Black & Proud’

As an Afro-German, rapper JESSE JAXX has encountered and witnessed a sting of racism in his lifetime and was inspired to speak out about these experiences, through his most personal work to date, ‘Black & Proud’.

Although the message in the song is loud and clear – for black people to stand proud, no matter what prejudices they face – the video shows people of different ethnic backgrounds, standing in unity as the answer to end racism.
