Song of the Day: Company – Mark Ambor

The ultimate “boy-next-door,” MARK AMBOR has captured the hearts of millions, emerging as one of pop music’s freshest voices. After the success of his recent single, ‘The Long Way’ (which received over 1.2 million streams in under a month), Mark returns with ‘Company’, a self-produced pop anthem gleaming with bright synths and live drums. His rapid ascent from unknown to breakout viral success places him on a trajectory with some of the most exciting names in rising pop music today.

Speaking on the inspiration behind “Company,” Ambor says, “I wrote this song during quarantine when I was missing everyone and everything that made me feel alive. I was talking to a girl that I was falling away from, I hadn’t seen my friends in a while and the whole idea of the song just flowed out of me over a piano riff one day. The idea is simple: life is better with each other. Which, for me, really highlights an important feeling I want to convey; realizing we’re not alone and celebrating ourselves, with one another, for all we’re worth.”

23-year-old New York native Mark Ambor is a self-taught guitarist, producer and vocalist who has been playing piano since the age of 7. While music has been a constant throughout his life, this past year has been the most defining for him as an artist. By sharing a variety of demos and covers on social media, he has rapidly captured the hearts of fans who are eager to hear more from him. In October 2020, he had just 2000 Instagram followers and he has now grown his audience to 235K on Instagram and 236K on TikTok.

His new release, ‘Company’ arrives on the heels of ‘The Long Way,’ is the first single he shared since his viral success. Why not check out the lyric video for the single below…

Song of the Day: Lonely Too Long – Mullally

A true force to be reckoned with and an artist at the top of his game, Norwich-based pop singer/songwriter MULLALLY creates powerful material that genuinely connects to listeners through his passion for music, dedication and conviction that can be heard in every word he sings.

Using his music as a platform to maintain a conversation on mental health, ‘Lonely Too Long’ is written about the apprehension of falling in love because of the fear of heartbreak and being left lonely all over again. With loneliness being such a big theme in his writing, Mullally has decided to work with The Marmalade Trust to bring awareness around loneliness, especially during such harrowing times.

Speaking more on this, Mullally explained: I wanted to capture the sadness of being lonely and the joy of finding someone, all in the same track. This track is really close to my heart because even though it’s written about a very particular point in my life, it manages to pop back up and be relevant over and over again as life continues. I wrote this almost 3 years ago with Eg White and Jon Green, two amazing musicians, so I’m thrilled that I can finally share this song. I’m also excited to be working with Marmalade Trust to bring awareness around loneliness in the UK.

He’s a rapidly rising star with building dialogue around him having had support from Radio 1’s Huw Stephens, 1Xtra’s DJ Target, Beats 1 and MTV along with supporting Annie Marie, Jess Glynne, Rag ’n’ Bone Man, Clean Bandit and many more on tour.

Make sure you look out for more powerful material from this talented guy in 2021…but for now, check out ‘Lonely Too Long’ below:

Song of the Day: Ghost Town – Quad Zerimar

Taken from his eponymous debut EP, QUAD ZERIMAR‘s track, ‘Ghost Town’ focuses on the theme of addiction, portraying Quad to be addicted to a girl who is already in a relationship and invites her to his ghost town, where he feels lonely. When she finally accepts his invitation, it all turns lively and romantic – and when she leaves, another more sombre addiction becomes present – drugs – as he doesn’t know how to cope without her.

Throughout the song, there are references to the ghost town – carousel, empty public houses/bars, ferris wheels – accompanied by background adlibs, crazy vocal ranges with hidden meanings.

So listen up, as every time you hit play on this trap-hop offering, you’ll hear something new…
