Song of the Day: Foreward – Sara Diamond (Brodi)

Lately, NEW LEASE MUSIC have been featuring a steady stream of Canadian artists, dominating the Song of the Day limelight.

Continuing the stream is Montreal-based singer SARA DIAMOND and her latest smooth soulful R&B offering entitled ‘Foreword’. Featuring Brodi, whose baritone instrument adds extra meat to the titillating arrangements, ‘Foreward’ is about overcoming obstacles that once appear so mighty. Sara was inspired to pen this song after bumping into an ex at the gas station after breaking up for over a year.

This one’s definitely a keeper for the collection; check it out NOW:

Song of the Day: Acceptance – Dr. Wolf

Since their inception in February, long-term friends/collaborators Henry Johns (guitar, drums, synth, vocals) and Nick Sapounas (synths, drums, vocals) – aka DR WOLF – are going all out to make a serious mark in the music circuit in their hometown Detroit with their debut singles ‘Came So Easy’ and ‘Acceptance’.

‘Acceptance’ has stolen today’s hotspot for its stunning lucid passage travelling throughout the almost six-minute composition. The interminable passage is smothered in ultraviolet synths that’s melodic and somehow very therapeutic.

Ahead of their debut releases, the duo became firm fixtures in the Detroit music circuit, performing at various venues as well as playing at the Hamtramck festival and Whateverfest. The guys are working on new material and are planning for release in the winter.

Press play on ‘Acceptance’ – and if this single has a calming effect on you, be sure to look out for their forthcoming projects.

New Music Video: More – Astha

ASTHA has released visuals to her most personal work to date, entitled ‘More’.

This smooth alt-pop number could be described as a victory song for the Canadian singer/songwriter after she turned her life around within a year, from years of loneliness and emptiness. Despite having sold-out tours across the UK, Australia and Asia, ASTHA revealed that she had massive breakdowns after each shows.

‘More’ is from her brand new EP ‘Muse’ which covers the struggles of a relationship – feeling frustrated, lonely and misunderstood – and the calm after the storm.
