Sizzy Rocket Is ‘That Bitch’ In Brand New Single

Seamlessly fusing bombastic punk-inspired riffs with electro-pop melodies, SIZZY ROCKET‘s new single, ‘That Bitch’ is the ultimate self-empowerment record.

Speaking of her latest release, Sizzy says: “’THAT BITCH’ is about owning yourself – even the crazy, messy, wild, emotional parts that might be ‘too much’ for people, even when you feel insane and down and alone. It’s about being unapologetic in the process of figuring out who you are and pummeling through anyone and anything that gets in your way. I hope it becomes the song you put on when you want to feel confident and sexy and dance in your mirror and let it all out and scream at the fucking world – because you’re THAT BITCH and you can be whoever the fuck you want to be!”

In 2016, Sizzy released her official debut album ‘THRILLS’. The album’s lead single, “Bestie,” became a viral sensation, receiving praise from the likes of New York Magazine, PAPER, and BUSTLE. With a whole new swarm of fans, Sizzy quickly dropped a surprise mixtape titled ‘Hot Summer’ in 2017. Her sophomore album, ‘GRRRL’, was released in Summer 2019 and was supported with a self-booked sold out US tour with buzzy newcomer chloe mk as support. To close out the year, Sizzy & chloe mk released a two song EP titled ‘I KNOW WHAT U LIKE’.

Now It’s time to check out Sizzy’s first release of the year…

LaDé Unleashed Her Sultry Debut Single ‘Teaser’

Congolese/Canadian singer and songwriter LADÉ  carries on the Valentines – or should I say – anti-Valentines theme this weekend with her bold and sensual debut single, Teaser’. Written and produced with burgeoning Ottawa-based artist and musician Jeff Sanon, ‘Teaser’ gives a sneak preview of what to expect from her upcoming debut EP, set to be released in the summer.

Backed by lush minimalist R&B musical soundscapes, LaDé uses her new track ‘Teaser’ to showcase her enchanting and sultry vocal performance, sensual harmonies, and captivating songwriting dexterities that combine beautifully to deliver an infectious and undeniably smooth R&B masterclass.

Speaking about the inspiration for ‘Teaser’, LaDé says, “The song is about the desire to become a better version of yourself after experiencing a rather toxic relationship, and then showing off that better version to the infamous ex, because your best revenge is your comeback. It’s a true story about my recovery process after a particular bad break up. We tend to subconsciously allow how other people, specifically our significant others, view us, what they think of us and do to us, depreciate our value as individuals but ‘Teaser’ is my way of reminding an ex-lover of what they lost and will never get back – a temporary tease for one night if you will. The track is about growing mentally, physically, and spiritually after experiencing a relationship that negatively impacted your life, and unapologetically displaying that growth”.

Fifi Rong Reveals Single, ‘Love Is A Lonely Thing’

Inspired by Wong Kar-Wai’s romantic film, ‘Mood For Love’, FIFI RONG’s self-produced single, ‘Love Is A Lonely Thing’ is a three-part production which takes on a different dimension to Valentine’s Day (watch the videos here). Narrated by the Chinese-British singer/songwriter’s delicate and well-poised vocal performance, ‘Love Is A Lonely Thing’ tells a story of an unrequited love story.

With distinctive blends of popular Western music (Avant-garde pop and hazy electronica) and Chinese influences, the first release of the year gives a taste of her upcoming album, slated for release later in the year.

2019 was a great year for Fifi as she became the fifth artist to be signed globally by W Records– a new music initiative from the iconic W Hotels – and recorded singles, ‘Farewell to Cambridge’ and ‘Way Out’, debuted at W Xi’an and W Shanghai (The Bund) as a part of her most successful China tour to date.

This year will see the bilingual songstress working on more interesting and quirky material for her forthcoming album. After working with the likes of Tricky, Phaeleh, Yello and Skepta, Fifi also set her sights on collaborating with more big names as well as planning a tour in the UK and China (dates to be announced on her website.)

Gaining firm support from the likes of The Clash, Fader Magazine, Pigeon and Planes, BBC Radio 1 and BBC Radio 6 Music, Fifi’s intricately intimate setting of ‘Love Is A Lonely Thing’ could do no harm but push her further into the limelight…

‘Love Is A Lonely Thing’ is out today on all reputable music platforms. Check out the video for single’s Trilogy below…

Selci Shares Surreal Anti-Valentine’s Day Video for Single ‘Strangers’ Today

Calgary alt-pop artist SELCI unveils her new video for ‘Strangers’ – an anti-Valentine’s Day track about a love that’s faded and gone – off her debut ‘Effervescence EP’. The single recalls a run-in with an ex-lover, and the painful realisation that after knowing someone so intimately, you hardly know them at all.

The video is framed around the deterioration of a relationship, juxtaposing Selci’s own memories in a surreal, subconscious world. A series of hazy vignettes spiral through memory, romance, dissociation and the loss of self. Blending high-definition and 8 mm film, home video and stop motion animation, analog textures are used to imply nostalgia and the timeless nature of broken relationships, while flickers of animation enhance the surrealist vibe.

“As the video progresses, I become cloaked in layers of fabric,” says Selci. “Happy memories are overcome by recollections of anger and violence, and I become engulfed by tulle. As the intensity increases, the boundary between reality and the subconscious world is blurred. This veiling is meant to signify the loss of self in a relationship. It mirrors the sensation of distance from the self and the distance from a lover as the relationship falls apart.”
