Song of the Day: Coming Home To You – Andria Piperni

 ANDRIA PIPERNI‘s single, ‘Coming Home To You’, is the perfect love note, with blends of neo-soul, R&B, and jazz where the Canadian singer/songwriter’s smokey vocals immediately puts you in the mind of Corinne Bailey Rae.

Andria first came on the radar back in 2018, with her debut single ‘Say Something’ which made its way onto Canada’s R&B/Soul iTunes chart. This sultry songstress has since released three singles, earning spots on major Spotify playlists such as New Music Friday Canada and Just Vibing, and has collaborated with a variety of artists including writing and featuring on house DJ Andrew Pololos’ hit single, ‘Never Be The Same’, which spent several weeks on Spotify’s Viral 50 Canada chart.

Song of the Day: Blurr – Ivytide

Montreal indie act IVYTIDE‘s single, ‘Blurr,’ encapsulates the feeling of losing touch, reflecting the distance between two people that comes from a disparity in perceptions, emotions, and perspectives.

The production on ‘Blurr’ embodies the feeling of distance, with elements of dreamy lo-fi R&B and washed out qualities, paired with lyrics describing the struggle of self-identification.

‘Blurr’ is the first single from their  EP, ‘Pardon Our Distance’. Check out the video below…

Forces Shares Fun-Packed Single, ‘Step In A Sway’

Canadian indie pop/dance duo FORCES‘ new single, ‘Step In A Sway’, is the perfect tribute to all those who are first on the dance floor, encouraging others to do the same.

“The song was inspired by a simple drum lesson we gave to a good friend. As she struggled to stay in the groove, the goal was to get her out of her head and into a rhythm where her body danced with the music. Later, as we were writing it, we realized her journey through that lesson – the struggle to get from panic to flow (or ‘sway’ as we call it here) – is a universal one, and it became an exploration of that theme, in both words and music.” – Forces

The accompanied video features lead vocalist, Jess, walking through the city wearing headphones – literally stuck in her head – and finding ‘sway’ in the forest scenes, where her inhibitions melt away through the music.

So it’s time for you to get your groove on and check out ‘Step In A Sway’ below…

Song of the Day: I Don’t Play That – Lex Leosis

When LEX LEOSIS witnessed a guy abusing a woman, it resonated with her. As a result, she penned the experience which serves as an self-empowerment anthem for anyone, particularly women, to take back control after suffering at the hands of their abuser.

Over an airy/trap beat, ‘I Don’t Play That’, also includes anyone who have witnessed the abuse and were deeply affected by the experience and urges them to overcome the trauma. This track is reminder that both affected parties – the victims and the witnesses –  are survivors and are stronger from the incident. Most importantly, the track encourages both parties to stand up to future abusers.
