Song of the Day: Wide Awake – Emily Molloy

A firm fixture in the indie music community of the West Coast, Canadian artist EMILY MOLLOY has created a rather raw, emotive-packed piece, coming in the shape of single, ‘Wide Awake’, taking from her latest EP, ‘Catastrophes.’

Written in under an hour, Molloy was emboldened by a break-up experienced by award-winning director Angie Nolan. Finding perspective through Nolan’s pain, Molloy packs each emotional punch with her raspy, full-bodied vox; each resolve in the lyrics a little more hurt than the last until she scales the note so hard in the bridge, you can feel in your soul the shattering of her heart. Molloy perfectly embodies a wailing wall of sorrow and sadness in one fell swoop.

After writing ‘Wide Awake’, I remember thinking to myself, ‘Wait…I’m not going through this myself, but Angie is,’” she recalls. “I realised I had written the song about her, and from her perspective, but that we can all relate.”

Enlisting recording engineer Eric Mosher at the Warehouse Studios in 2020, Molloy quickly realized that “Wide Awake” was the stand-out track on her latest EP. “This is my most vulnerable song recorded to date, and I knew I needed a video that would fully capture the story and emotion expressed. The song turned out more beautifully stunning in the studio than I could ever hoped for, and it screamed for its visual equal.”

Beth Crowley Takes Us On A Heartbreaking Journey In Her Latest Single, ‘Not Like This’

BETH CROWLEY is back with her signature soulful lyrics and cinematic production in single ‘Not Like This.’ The song takes us on a heartbreaking journey through the mind and focuses on a love that’s not all Crowley wanted it to be, despite her hopes and dreams.

Speaking of the single, Beth says: “I wanted to play with the idea of when you get something you want but not how you wanted it. I put it in the context of a scenario where the person singing has the opportunity to be with the person she has feelings for but not under the circumstances she would have chosen.”

Musically, ‘Not Like This’ takes the upsetting theme and brings an upbeat twist with pop vocals, drum hits, and catchy melodies, all perfectly complement Beth’s smooth voice, creating the ideal heartbreak ballad. Have a listen below…
