Song of the Day: 9 Deep Breaths – Fabian Secon

FABIAN SECON‘s self-written single, ‘9 Deep Breaths’ is probably his most honest work to date. The track encapsulates his lo-fi, genre-spanning sound with Fabian revealing his battle with anxiety on a daily basis:

“Anxiety’s the villain to my brain / Looks to kill me anytime of day / My guilty thoughts rain on my parade / And 9 deep breaths to get me through the day”, he sings. But there’s also a sense of determination and hopefulness in the lyrics too: “But I’m strong as an ox or tiger teeth / No I won’t let this defeat me / Screaming out, how hard can it be? / Facing myself the enemy”.

Fabian has built up an impressive fanbase organically over the last couple of years, with over 30 million streams globally across all platforms – a huge feat as an independent DIY artist. On Spotify alone, he currently has close to 250,000 monthly listeners and several tracks that have crossed the one million barrier.

So if you’re currently suffering from depression or anxiety, remember you’re not alone as this guy has been through it all, despite his impressive record in the industry. Check out the Lyric video for ‘9 Deep Breaths’ below…

Marina Massanova Releases New Single, Dank’o’holic

Ukrainian genre-fluid punk rap queen MARINA MASSANOVA‘s heavy-hitter, ‘Dank’o’holic’, is the perfect anthem for anybody who likes a good drink. Touching on subjects like partying and alcoholism, the single is inspired by alcohol addiction.

She wrote the song after her friend said she should stop writing songs about love. Being a bit of a boozer she instead suggested she wrote some music about being passed out on the floor drunk out of her mind. The song is the perfect recollection of a drunk woman having a great time. She took all the best memories of partying and brought in rapper Chris Jenkins to write the song together. The infectious beat perfectly captures the vibe of the track, giving the feel of a drunk person trying to play guitar over loose, heavy-hitting rhythms.

Marina is currently working on her first full-length album which will showcase her new found punk rap style.

Watch the video for ‘Dank’o’holic’. The production was all taken in one intimate shot, baring Marina’s soul as she goes wild in the music studio.
