EM Shares Mystical Yet Pop-Friendly Single, ‘Say What You Mean’

Singer/songwriter EM‘s latest single, ‘Say What You Mean,’ weds pointed lyrics about forthrightness in a relationship to an otherworldly yet pop-friendly musical sound-scape. Produced by Chris Young, the song is the centerpiece of the her self-titled seven -song EP, ‘EM’

Directed by Parris Mayhew, the mesmerizing video prominently shows off Em’s (short for Emily) sensually and supernaturally. The New Jersey-native is dressed in a provocative gown, her raven hair streaked in white, deep red lipstick setting off bewitching green eyes and mystical elements such as ghostly clones, tarot cards and raindrops that turn to tears.

EM is already in the midst of completing another EP by the end of this year, working with famed Motown producer Michael B. Sutton (Sound of Los Angeles Records) and Gregor Stobie of Glasgow, Scotland.

‘Say What You Mean’ is now available on all DSPs…check out the video for the single below…

Middle Part Shares Brand New Single, ‘Busy’

Andrew Selkōw, who goes under the moniker, MIDDLE PART, shares his brand new  single, ‘Busy’, inspired by early millennium alt pop artists like Michelle Branch and Natalie Imbruglia, with a modernised sonic twist to the likes of Clairo.

Speaking of his latest offering, Selkōw says: “A lot of this record is about ego, vulnerability, and dealing with loss. It’s also about finding a balance with your mental well being. Busy touches on that theme of letting go of your ego and being more vulnerable with the people around you. That’s the message I’m trying to get across, and I feel that ties in with the EP’s title, which is all about being more present rather than mentally checked out.”

‘Busy’ is the third single off Middle Part’s upcoming six-track EP, ‘I Wish I Was Alive’ which is heavily driven by his personal experiences, his shortcomings, his struggle with depression, dissociation and overall loss.

Album Review: Summer Catalogue – East Hampton Polo Boys

Recorded over a two day period back in February, New York’s hip-hop collective, EAST HAMPTON POLO BOYS present their album, ‘Summer Catalogue’ with such style and poise…

Melodic old school soulful samples complimenting the bounce of the urban/hip-hop bass, becomes the main feature of the mammoth collection, with a punch of smooth psychedelic funk making a pleasantly surprising appearance towards the end of the album.

With the guys taking turns in slamming down their easy-going, a matter of fact delivery on the delicately hazy arrangements, ‘Summer Catalogue’ will undoubtedly be appeasing to die-hard hip-hop heads, particularly to fans of Jay-Z (late 1980s) and KRS-1.
