New Music Video: Not Perfect – Gena Perala

GENA PERALA unveiled a hazy production for latest single, ‘Not Perfect’, released 19th of July,  as part of a three song EP. Working with long-time producer Chris Gestrin, the two create a haunting sound, enhanced by Perala’s pure yet chilling voice and honest lyrics.

As with her previous videos, Perala has teamed up with incredibly talented dancers to help the convey the prominent messages in her latest offering.

Speaking of her single, the Canadian singer/songwriter explains: “I’m often the person who speaks her mind, who knows who she is and who stands up for what she believes in. I’ve always had a strong voice and while those qualities are encouraged in theory, in practice, not so much. No, I don’t always say it right and yes, I can get emotional, I’m not perfect but my heart is always in the right place.”

‘Not Perfect’ is the third song off the EP, baring the same name, which includes her previously released songs ‘Good Girl’ (2018) and ‘I Will Never Know’ (2019). The three songs tell a story of moving from powerlessness to uncertainty to perseverance.

‘Not Perfect’ is now available on all download/streaming sites…have a sneak of the video below:

Song of the Day: I Can’t Remember My Name – Snotty Nose Rez Kids (ft. Shanks Sioux)

Following their debut on the blog with single, ‘Creator Made Me An Animal’, SNOOTY NOSE REZ KIDS continue to bring on the aggressive and assertive energy through latest track, ‘I Can’t Remember My Name.’

“I Can’t Remember My Name suggests we are lost and don’t understand our position in this new world, but the lyrics tell the opposite. Instead of being consumed by society, we preserve everything that makes us Indigenous by staying true to ourselves through all the bullshit.” – SNOOTY NOSE REZ KIDS

‘I Can’t Remember My Name’ is from ‘their new album, ‘TRAPLINE’, released last Friday (10th May.)

New Track: Creator Made An Animal – Snotty Nose Rez Kids (ft. Boslen)

Featuring rapper Boslen, SNOTTY NOSE REZ KIDS‘ latest joint, ‘Creator Made An Animal’, carries an aggressive and assertive energy that imitates the way society portrays Indigenous people and people of colour across Turtle Island.

As a latest edition of the Indigenous ancestry, the Canadian hip-hop duo stated they are often regarded as the pissed-off generation who haven’t gotten over what colonisation has done to their lands and people.

Through their boisterous yet slick delivery, they’re letting the world know that they are here to stay and they are NOT changing for anyone!  Their latest track serves as a teaser for their album, ‘TRAPLINE’, set for release next month.

EP Review: Crisis – Phé

With downtempo, electronic soundscapes and an occasional soaring of the guitar riffs, PHÉ gives afterhours R&B as we know it a dark and sinister makeover through her latest EP entitled EP, ‘Crisis’.

Through the dense(ish) arrangements, the Vancouver-born/Los Angeles based singer/songwriter’s crisp and sassy vocals poke through, offering the EP that much-needed lightness.

If you love a contemporary take on soulful R&B, then you’ll definitely enjoy this pretty neat package. Check her out below:
