Song of the Day: Gladiolus – Yvonne Hercules

Singer and self-taught musician YVONNE HERCULES drops her stunning cross-genre single entitled ‘Gladiolus’ into today’s hotspot.

Encompassing of old school blues with a little folk and alternative music, ‘Gladiolus’ explores the movement of Winter into Spring and how this metaphorically corresponds to a journey from a place of death into a place of life or hope. The thought-provoking lyrics are reinforced by Yvonne’s haunting and well-poised vocal.

‘Gladiolus’ is taken from her new EP of the same name and follows her single ‘Roving’, which  received support from Clash magazine, Line of Best Fit, Afropunk, BBC Introducing, Amazing Radio and others.

This is absolutely breathtaking…have a listen to ‘Gladiolus’

Song of the Day: I Hate To See You This Way – Van Bellman

If you’re a fan of real gritty rock music with a kick of funk, well Zac Taylor – aka –  VAN BELLMAN‘s first single, ‘I Hate To See You This Way’ may well be your new favourite.

The theme of ‘I Hate To See You This Way’ focuses on the pain of watching someone you love go down a dark road, witnessing them self-destruct. “It means a lot to me as both a lyrical and sonic story,” said Taylor, who also produced the track at the legendary Mission Sound Studios in Brooklyn. With influences from Kurt Cobain to Jeff Buckley,  Taylor’s offering possesses the accusatory growl of the chorus which instantly pulls you into the sensitive moments in between the roars.

The Brooklyn-based musician, who once played the guitar with multi-platinum band American Authors, is shaping to be a respected collaborator and songwriter in the NYC music scene.
So sure to look out for VAN BELLMAN as he comes at you with boisterous tunes with hard-hitting lyrics one by one….

Song of the Day: Know Your Worth – 91′ Thompson

91′ THOMPSON‘s latest track well deserves a place on NEW LEASE MUSIC’s Song of Day hotspot for its ambient combo of hip-hop and R&B, which works perfectly in unison with Thompson’s slick flow – who tells all the ladies out there (in around about way) to know their worth.

Song of the Day: Murphy’s Law – Chersea

On surface, CHERSEA‘s debut single, Murphy’s Law’ may be full of pop blissfulness, but don’t get caught up in the hypnotic arrangements: scratch that surface a little deeper and you’re presented with a rather powerful message that make us step back for a minute and reevaluate our thoughts…

The Canadian singer/songwriter aims to serve as the voice of victim liberation. Through the three-minute production, she also urges us to reach out and try to understand those who have experienced similar traumas, in order to restore faith and provide a fresh perspective in the system of victim support.

CHERSEA is set to release her debut LP on Fierce Panda Panada later in 2018…but for now, listen to ‘Murphy’s Law’.​
