OUT TODAY: Eva Rawlings Shares Single, ‘5 Steps’

Following her singles ‘LIKE ME’ and ‘Tell Me What You Like,’ Pop/R&B artist EVA RAWLINGS returns with her empowering breakup anthem, ‘5 Steps.’ Inspired by an ex’s bad post-breakup behavior, ‘5 Steps’ showcases Eva’s passionate vocals set to a driving trap beat. Crafted with 11x platinum producer Ian Kimmel, the track delivers a catchy, danceable chorus while tapping into the bitter experience of seeing an ex move on.

Eva says of the track, “My idea was to write one of those counting down songs that went viral, but make it not corny. I liked the idea of writing a snarky song to your ex who got over you way too fast, spelling out what they must have done to be doing fine so quickly after the breakup. So many great producers and writers helped make this song what it is, and we finished it that day, so from the inception of the concept to it being mixed and mastered was less than 24 hours.”

A passionate social activist and feminist, Eva’s’ latest single, ‘LIKE ME,’ was created entirely by women, with streaming proceeds from the single pledged to U.S. abortion funds. She also organized and performed in a fundraiser show with other Berklee acts raising money for an organization to end gun violence. Eva continues to empower listeners with her latest single, ‘5 Steps,’ which is out now across platforms. Have a listen below….

Song of the Day: Hero – Klaudia Keziah

Upcoming songstress KLAUDIA KEZIAH confronts the difficulties of modern-day dating, in her latest unapologetic-yet-sultry single named, ‘Hero’.

With the aim to inspire and empower many women around the world, Klaudia Keziah has delivered a slice of sensual heaven that enables women to feel confident in themselves. Underpinned with a pop and R&B infused production courtesy of Jojo F (ArrDee, Deno, Tion Wayne, Sarkodie, Unknown T), the single is paired with a set of old-school visuals that contrast against the displeasures of modern-day dating; the black-and-white-washed shots don’t distract from the message laying beneath the upbeat production.

Speaking on the meaning behind the track Klaudia commented, “For me, ‘Hero’ was inspired by a conversation I had with my girlfriends about how some guys slide into the DM’s or even cat call us women in the street. They’re “flexy” approach from the jump about how much money they have or what car they drive is not impressive because I can get those things for myself. A lot of the lyrics are things men have said to me or my friends from experience and through the song I almost get to answer these situations from my point of view.”

Gaining previous support from Wonderland, Raydar Magazine, Industry Me, DJ Ace at BBC Radio 1Xtra, Radio 2’s ‘Funky Playlist’, Voice FM, Wordplay Magazine, We Are Beyond Noise, BBC Introducing, The Hype Magazine and more, ‘Hero’ follows up from the 2021 release ‘Dedicated’ that swiftly caught the attention of various tastemakers and publications. Growing up between England and Lithuania, Klaudia from a young age sprouted a love for music when picking up both the cello and piano. Now a self-taught producer, songwriter and singer, the budding talent has built a growing fan base that are eager for her next move. With more music on the way, Klaudia Keziah is ready to showcase the world her music!

Song of the Day: Trust Me – Analise

ANALISE is an 18-year old singer-songwriter with the world at her feet. The New England born folk-pop songstress has been fixated on writing and the different forms it can create, and has been officially releasing music for two years. Three releases to her name already, including ‘Rooftop’ has gained a lot of traction on Spotify alone, surpassing the 100k mark, showcasing Analise’s talent at still such a young age.

Highly influenced by the likes of YEBBA, Daniel Caesar and Dijon, Analise pulls in those artists and draws her own lines in her potent songwriting. Co-working and producing on all releases so far, she now returns in 2022 with the beautifully stripped back single ‘Trust Me’. Taken from her debut EP set to be released alongside, she was recently accepted into the renowned Berklee College of Music, where she has been perfecting her craft.

Acoustically driven and melodically flowing from the off, ‘Trust Me’ is both vulnerable and shows a real authenticity to Analise. Her vocals take centre stage in this one, and are simply breathtaking as she ebbs and flows through the track, picking out melodies that are way beyond her years. She immerses you into her dreamy folk-pop atmosphere, and the production from Doug Holzapfel (Jesse McCartney, Akon, The Outfit) shines through in this minimalistic yet powerful offering.

An all encompassing artist at still such a young age, ‘Trust Me’ is yet another example of why Analise is going to be one of the breakout artists in 2022.

Analise says that ““Trust Me” is a song built on emotion. This song highlights the complexity that lies in young love – trying to understand our growing selves while trying to give ourselves to someone else. It can be so encapsulating to love and to be loved at such a vulnerable time that when it ends, we can feel very alone.

It’s easy to take that sadness and manipulate yourself into thinking the other person doesn’t care or feel the same. But when you connect so closely with someone else like you do in young relationships, feelings might go away – but that care doesn’t. “Trust Me” is about failing to align and wanting to be there for someone who won’t let you.”

OUT TODAY: Rising Artist JVSTN. Shares Genre-Bending Single, ‘LOST & FOUND’

With his new single, New York-based pop artist JVSTN. continues his journey into a synthy, sample-based pop sound, but this time experiments with Hip Hop and Psychedelic elements. After the successful release of his first original song earlier this year, JVSTN. is excited to build his discography with another ethereal creation.

Out today, ‘LOST & FOUND’ started when he attended the Governor’s Ball music festival in NYC 2021, his first festival since the beginning of COVID. JVSTN. wanted to capture the feeling of looking around the crowd and seeing lovers kiss, friends smile, and strangers groove to the same beat. He cuts these dopamine-heavy emotions with more depressive and anxious thoughts in the verses and bridge to build up to a psychedelic explosion in the song’s third act. This song was co-written with his longtime writing partner and friend, Charlie Aldrich.

‘LOST & FOUND’ follows JVSTN.’s previous well received offering, ‘Dancing With The Enemy’, an euphoric formula of layered sampled vocals, trip-hop-like beats and an elegant topline. The Brooklyn-based pop hero manages to deliver a track that will appease not only big playlists and radio outlets, but also listeners on the edgier part of the spectrum, effectively bridging the gap to art-pop.

‘LOST & FOUND’ is out today on various music platforms… Check out the official video for the single below…

Listen To Joeyglo’s New Single, ‘Lovely Lady’

Hailing from Nashville, singer-songwriter, producer, and audio engineer JOEYGLO shares his new single ‘Lovely Lady,’ which references the importance of making women feel validated, worthy and enough.

Although women are breaking boundaries all the time, Joeyglo says, “This world would be nothing without a woman or a girl.” “Lovely Lady” represents the prominence of well-deserved women. “The song is about the first moment the protagonist meets a woman and just has to know every little detail about who she is and wants to spend every waking moment with this special human,”

While blending genres and giving a fresh sound to the electronic-pop and hip-hop scenes, the track drew inspiration from “the givers of life,” says Joeyglo. “I wrote this song to be fun and flirtatious while not making women feel sexualized or unappreciated for who they really are as people,”

In Joeyglo’s career, his influences have had a powerful impact on his creativity and have even drawn comparisons to Ryan Tedder of OneRepublic, Justin Timberlake, Pharrell Williams, and Jeff Buckley. The style and sound of his storytelling translated into lyrics are on the rise as he furthers himself in the limelight as an artist.

‘Lovely Lady’ was released last Friday (9th September) for your pleasure. Have a listen below…
