Annabel Gutherz Shares New Single ‘Retrograde (Epic Remix)

Montreal-based singer and songwriter ANNABEL GUTHERZ returns with a reimagined version of her latest single, ‘Retrograde (Epic Remix).’

For the remix, Annabel worked with Los Angeles-based producer Bret “Epic” Mazur to put a lively new spin on the track. While many know Epic from his role in the band Crazy Town, he is also an accomplished producer who has helped develop some of the biggest names in music (Black Eyed Peas, New Edition, BBD).

“It was so amazing and humbling getting to work with Bret ‘Epic’ Mazur on this remix,” Annabel says. “I am so grateful for his talents and for the summer spin on he put on the song.”

Bite The Boxer Releases New Single, ‘Like A Ghost’

BITE THE BOXER is back with new single, ‘Like A Ghost’, which carries on the same stylistic direction as previous single, Forgotten, which gained press and radio attention across the globe. For this latest offering, the UK producer continues to blend genres that he has previously touched on, such as Alt-pop, Synthwave, Lo-fi and Indie pop to create a unique dreamy and lush soundscape.

Bite The Boxer (AKA Matt Park) often produces his music live on Twitch streams and has this to say of his process: “Writing music live with people watching encourages me to trust my instincts and produce by feel; nobody wants to watch me do fine tuning and tweaks for 2 hours. I try to avoid over-thinking the process. If I can finish a 2.5 hour stream with the bulk of a song finished, and it sounds good then that’s an ideal result.”

‘Like A Ghost’ was released last Friday (3rd June) across all major digital platforms. Check out the music video for the single below:

Song of the Day: Forgotten – Bite The Boxer

The name of BITE THE BOXER‘s latest single, ‘Forgotten’ didn’t come by accident.

Partly written and produced live on Twitch and also written, primarily, shortly after his latest ‘A Stream Becomes A River’ EP, released October 2021, ‘Forgotten’ was assumed lost by the UK producer. However months later, he found the production by chance and fine tuned it with a fresh set of ears. The result is an explosively euphoric fusion of indie, dreampop, lofi with a splash of 90s-esque chill.

Starting out as an indie-rock act in early 2020, Matt Park has transitioned under the name Bite The Boxer, delving into mind blowing fusions of dreampop, synthwave, cyberpunk, ambient, chillwave and lo-fi.

Jamie Beale Shares Tantalising Debut Single ‘Borderline’, Taken From Upcoming Album

Taken from his upcoming debut album, expected for release later this year, Bristol-based songwriter JAMIE BEALE‘s debut single ‘Borderline’, sure hits like a sugar rush. The track – an enchanting blend of indie-rock, dream-pop and acid-funk- boasts dewy guitar textures, soaring harmonies and synth-laden soundscapes backed by the shuffling drums and tantalising grooves.

‘Borderline’ was written during the winter lockdown in the middle of an increasingly isolated period of his life. His relationship was coming to an end, he was alone in lockdown and his music and touring career within Novatines was looking uncertain, along with his idea of a future within music at all.

Speaking about the time, Beale states: “I was spending the majority of my time living in a hazy dreamworld, searching for something positive to hold onto, I felt that no matter what, I still had me and my own personal freedom of mind, and there was something comforting about that. Somewhere between my partially self-induced cabin fever madness and a sense of unshakable positivity in an unusual time, I wrote Borderline. I guess it’s a song for people with nowhere to go, and how not knowing where you belong isn’t always a bad thing.”

As vocalist and songwriter of rock band Novatines, Jamie has an array of musical achievements already under his belt, having toured the UK and Europe extensively as well as receiving national airplay on stations such as BBC Radio 2, 6 and Radio X.

Flowerless Unveils New Single, ‘LAB’

FLOWERLESS is the alter ego of Nightwell lead singer and frontman, Jason Emsallem. The project delves into emotional alt-pop with nods to the Toronto underground hip hop sound.

With abstract vocal manipulation paired with luscious walls of harmonies, Flowerless aims to be as dynamic as the pop punk scene he grew up with while paying homage to the buttery RnB sound he fell in love with along the way.

His latest release, ‘LAB,’ reflects on the end of a relationship which taught Flowerless that he is, in fact, an “emotional bitch.”

Two years ago, he was in a relationship that wasn’t committed and about to express deeper feelings to the woman he was with, when she slept with her ex. “Even though she said it was trash and she didn’t want to go back to him, the damage had been done and I wasn’t able to get past it to really continue things,” explains Flowerless.

‘LAB (Life’s a Bitch)’ is the result of Flowerless turning this fucked up thing into something beautiful. Have a listen below…
