New Track: Hypocritical – NOA

NOA‘s ‘Hypocritical’ reflects on the aftermath of her own break-up, admitting there were times she wanted her ex back one minute – and then detesting him the next.

Through the playful electrifying pop vibes, the Toronto singer/songwriter has to terms that it’s perfectly normal to have those roller coaster emotions after coming out a messy situation. After all, we’re only human!

Song of the Day: Dawn – Mackenta

MACKENTA‘s latest single, ‘Dawn’ chronicles when you fall head over heels for someone HARD, knowing that the person isn’t in it for the long haul. Despite seeing the warning signs, you let the relationship go on. Come on, hands up, we’ve all been in that messy situation!

Speaking of the R&B/pop number, the Toronto singer/songwriter said: “I felt a lot of mixed emotions while writing “Dawn.” Nostalgia over the good memories and potential, resentment about not being something more, shame over allowing the situation to escalate so far. I’m telling it from my point of view, so there’s a sense of blame towards this person who is not mature enough to take things seriously; but also realizing that I’m equally to blame for not drawing the line or understanding my own intentions. Ultimately, it’s about two people who both need to heal before they could ever be together.”

Look out for MACKENTA‘s EP dropping later this year. For now, check out the video for the melodic ‘Dawn’ below:

New Music Video: Million Things – Featurette

Song of the Day: Quiet – Grace May

Following the release of her single ‘High Tide’, taken from the album, UNION (released via Berklee’s record label: Heavy Rotation Records) GRACE MAY returns with the stunning release, ‘Quiet’.

Written after listening to Joni Mitchell’s ‘Both Sides Now’, May was inspired by the songstress and delved into old interviews where she was left in awe of Mitchell’s quote, “If you listen to the music and you see me, you’re not getting anything out of it. If you listen to that music and you see yourself… now you’re getting something out of it”.

‘Quiet’ narrates the feeling of loneliness. It’s the familiar story of not wanting to burden friends and family with your worries, so instead you struggle in silence and this feeling is reflected through the solitary instrumentation and minimalistic production. Despite its simplistic approach, the single packs a punch through the 22-year-old Canadian songbird’s passionate and heartfelt vocals.

This is one single you don’t want to miss…have a listen to Quiet, available on all download/streaming sites.
