Song of the Day: Dancing with Devils of Mine – Buel

BUEL stays true to her own style and dreamy universe with ‘Dancing with Devils of Mine’, an alternative-pop song infused with influences such as Christine And The Queens and Tame Impala. The song is about taking a more individualistic approach to gender and sexuality.

Buel explains the inspiration behind her latest single: “In my opinion society is too involved in individuals’ gender and sexual orientation and this is accepted by most of the people as people from all sides feel the pressure to try to explain what these mean to them and who they are interested in. This acceptance feels a bit like an invasion of privacy to me and I think the more we accept to explain our gender and sexuality to others the more we create space for suppression and judgment. Because these are only feelings and concepts and shouldn’t be treated as solid rock or ‘gold’ for people’s liking or sympathy as I mentioned in the song. Like ‘boys having to act like boys”, or the concept of a “man not being a man or woman”. I believe if we could all accept that these are personal feelings that evolve day to day, there would be more space for privacy and respect.”

From her Indie-Pop songs’ compositions, arrangements, music video directions to stylism and visuals, BUEL handles everything with taste and perfection. Awarded for her work with ‘Lemon Smile’, winning the 2021 London Music Video Festival, BUEL was remarked in 2019 by Adrian Gurvitz, who signed her a production deal with AGM Records UK, upon her release ‘Advice’.

Her previous singles ‘Lemon Smile’ and ‘Small Talk’ have been played on radio stations across the US and the UK, and was listed as best new pop artist by BBC1. Her song ‘Stray Little Legs’ is featured in the movie ‘Let’s Dream’, and ‘Troublemaker’ in the movie ‘My True Fairytale’

BUEL is a one of a kind, promising artist, already praised by her peers, and she will release her first album in 2023.

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. Have a listen to the tantalising ‘Borderline’ below…
