Batya, a 19 year old electro pop artist could be the next big thing. Intrigued by songwriting at an early age, her 15 year old sister bought her guitar who passed away shortly after. Artists’ that write and perform music as a source of therapy always make the best work of art. Timeless and classic songs are created through trials and tribulations.
My personal favorite is What’s My Name. Batya notes, “What’s My Name?” is a song about losing your identity. There was a time in my life where I got lost and wasn’t sure which way to go. During my senior year of high school everybody seemed to know what they wanted to do and where they wanted to go but I didn’t. The answer was actually right in front of me but I was too afraid to see it. I think it had been the first time in my life where I lost sight of who I was and what I wanted. I feel like most of us go through that at one point or another which is what makes this track so relatable. I feel like a 15 year old or an 80 year old can turn it on and just be like “I totally get it.”
Los Angeles duo B00ty is breaking new ground with their latest church-esque track Holy – sounds a little left of Hozier. They describe themselves as a throwback 1970s primetime Sly And The Family Stone.
How did the song come about? “Edan freestyled the instrumentation while driving, Adam sang over it and 24 hours later, the song was done: an iconic-sounding soul ballad that doesn’t just stop you in your tracks, but glues you there till its four minutes of string swells and soul-searching have come crashing to a climax.” – 10Kislands
The indie act which consists of Edan Freiberger and Adam Epelbaum have a unique story. Edan has pursued every instrument possible, even perfecting the violin whereas Adam grew up with an obsession of films, comedy and screenwriting. The’ve received love from NME which premiered the video, which is cool as the track itself. To sum it up, Booty is cool, hip, and heading towards greatness. email@example.com, James@somethingaboutus.la
Los Angeles indie act Mood Robot has released the new track Ghost – an electro auto-tuned indie gem.

Kings favorite Molly Moore released a new track Just a Dream feat. Brandyn Burnette. The new song is the 2nd release which comes off her forthcoming EP set for fall.
I’ve been writing about Moore for a while and on her path of self discovery, she’s finally hitting the right notes.
The indie starlet has been compared to Ellie Goulding and Lana Del Rey, and having moved to NYC to LA is when she started collaborating with an array of artists. Her songs have captivated EDM remixers found themselves on TV shows, and Moore herself has signed with Imagem Music Publishing.
Moore notes, “Never stop snowballing on what you’ve built,” she says. “Oh, and never give up.” Her hard work is paying off.
