Coming out of Los Angeles, hip-hop/R&B singer CAT CLARK kicks off the year with brand new single, ‘Snowstorm Shorty’ along with the official video, reflecting the alluringly laid-back vibes of the latest effort.
‘Snowstorm Shorty’ is the first of two singles to be release before the arrival of EP, ‘Hurts to Love’.
Having released the audio at the end of last year, JULY JONES unleashes the video for single, ‘Switch It Off’.
Speaking on the release, the British-Slovene artist says: “The singleis about waking up from a one-night-stand and constantly thinking about the person you were with the night before. This is exactly what happened to my boyfriend & I, I became obsessed with fantasying about him to the point I couldn’t switch it (my mind) off.”
The fierce production mirrors the obsession and shows Jones hooked up to multiple videos of previous sexual encounters. Each video is drip-fed through cables that connect the braids on her head to the televisions, playing each individual memory back to her.
Following the success of her highly acclaimed EP, ‘Half and Half’, DEANNA DEVORE is unveiling her new release ‘Lately’, featuring a mystery vocalist who cannot yet be announced.
Thematically the single narrates the insecurity and ups and downs of a relationship, detailing how love can often feel like an emotional rollercoaster until it finally comes to an end. Its mellow grooves and smooth lo-fi beats cook up a mouth-watering release, oozing with seductive melodies and velvety vocals, which highlight the featured singer’s impressive vocal range. Emitting a sensuous flowing cadence, delicately layered harmonies and a pulsating rhythm, ‘Lately’ provides an alluring neo-soul track, showcasing Devore’s unique and fresh production.
The Chicago and Toronto based multi-instrumentalist, singer, songwriter and producer has seen success performing to sold-out venues and festivals across the map, such as Summerfest, CMJ, NXNE, and 80/35. She has also had the pleasure of opening for renowned artists including Jamie Cullum, Bonobo and SG Lewis, as well as Raveena, Mother Mother and Yoke Lore. The composer has recently explored more commercial work, where her work can be heard in podcasts, feature films and even a Starbucks ad.
Devore continues to be celebrated for her remarkable musicality and ‘Lately’ is another indication of what to expect in 2020…check it out below…
