Listen To Joshua Luke Smith’s Powerful Single, ‘Mosaics’

JOSHUA LUKE SMITH delivers a hopeful mantra for 2021 in new single, ‘Mosaics’. 2020 was a difficult year for many but Joshua Luke Smith encourages us to embrace it all as part of the human experience; the good and the bad, as together they make a beautiful, bigger picture. As he explains:

“This is a song for those we’ve lost and for those who were left behind. I wrote it in the midst of grief, struggling to come to terms with life in the absence of someone who meant so much and filled up so much space. I’ve come to learn our lives are like mosaics, made up of many parts, all as meaningful as each other. Sometimes it’s not until we take a step back seeing the bigger picture, brought together with suffering and joy, loss and nearness, that we can truly see its beauty.”

The uplifting cut features the stunning, soulful tones of Bianca Rose which make the song all the more beautiful.

‘Mosaics’ is now available across all digital platforms and serves as a taster for his album, due for release this Spring. Check out the official music video for the single below…

Sal Dulu Drops Track ‘Girl’, Ahead Of Album

Tipped Dublin-based producer/musician, SAL DULU shares his rather mercurial single, ‘Girl’. The new cut comes off the back of recent singles ‘B’ and ‘Alien Boy 96’ which have found tips from Complex, NTS Radio, The Line of Best Fit and DJ Booth.

Stylistically, ‘Girl’ segues once again with Sal Dulu latching onto distorted beat loops and twinkling piano segments. Whereas ‘Alien Boy 96’ mined a sound affiliated with warm-hued, ambient nostalgia and ‘B’ found collaboration with Richmond, Virginia-based artist, Koncept Jackson, ‘Girl’ harnesses an array of off-kilter rhythms and jazz-indebted sensibilities.

Out today on your preferred music platform, ‘Girl’ is taken from his forthcoming debut album, ‘Xompulse’ which is set for self-release via his own Duluoz Records on 19th February.

Solo Artist Favourite Daugther Shares Catchy Yet Chaotic Single, ‘Long Distance’

‘Long Distance’, a racy indie pop debut single from, FAVOURITE DAUGHTER, reflects on trying to keep up appearances that everything’s fine, while running from the inevitable.

Its catchy, yet chaotic sound  really captures the sense of pushing down something until it inevitably overflows.

Speaking of the inspiration behind the release, the Canadian singer/songwriter says: “I wrote Long Distance on an unplugged, rented electric guitar during a blackout on a night off from an opera gig I was doing in Halifax in the summer of 2019, in tears after a frustrating phone call with my then-girlfriend. We were spending a four month stretch away from each other while I travelled for work. Neither of us were communicating well, and our daily check ins became monotonous. Both of us kept up the charade that we were good, while allowing fear and resentment to build up, which ended up costing us the relationship entirely.”

‘Long Distance’ is now available on download and streaming sites…check out the official video for the single below…

Tik Tok Sensation Lubalin Debuts New Single, ‘Long Txts’

LUBALIN has debuted his new single ‘Long Txts’, a smooth genre-bending hip-hop track – written and produced by the self-taught Montreal-based creator and artist – who writes, composes, produces, and records all of his own music.

On the release of his new single, ‘Long Txts,’ Lubalin shares: “Sometimes we try to simplify complicated things, and in the end, it only makes them more complicated. The song starts out clean and tidy, reflecting this desire to keep everything simple. But it won’t hold for long. By the time we reach the chorus, the song is erupting. The chorus is so eager to explode that it comes in a whole measure early.”

At the close of 2020, Lubalin skyrocketed to viral TikTok fame overnight thanks to his two original Internet Drama videos (here and here) that have amassed 53 million views, 12.8 million likes, and gained him 1.8 million followers on the platform in only a matter of weeks.

Stay tuned for much more to come from the multi-talented artist who is planning a series of new releases for 2021, including singles, EPs, and videos.

‘Long Txts’, is now available on all digital streaming platforms now via Cult Nation/The Orchard. Check it out below…
