The band notes: “After finishing our first tour of South Africa we decided to go shark diving. I had a phobia of drowning but felt it was time to face my fears.I jumped in the water and opened my eyes. There was a shark staring right at my face, my heart was pumping so I panicked. As I was collecting my breath I started hearing this melody my head that kept getting louder..I left the Ocean to grab my phone and record the melody which eventually become the chorus of ‘Little Dance.’
The duo picked up gold and platinum singles and garnered over 50 million streams. The performed internationally off of the success with their single “Life Without Fantasies” and won the Canadian JUNO Award.
Look out for Rachael Kathryn Bell aka Little Luna and the track under the wave. In the first few seconds of the track, I thought I was listening to Gotye’s Somebody I Use To Love, but it quickly ventures into new territory.
Little Luna says “This song, to me, is about how I feel in meditation. Sometimes my mind present and floating, Sometimes my thoughts tossing me around.”
“I wrote this when I was living with my parents a year into the pandemic. I was making music out of their garage (so literally my own garage band lol). I made this one night when I was exhausted listening to all my go-to comfort songs” says Lyrah.
Lyrah got her start as a writer for other artists and since pursuing a solo path her songs have landed on Spotify’s Fresh Finds and garnering features Earmilk and Indie Shuffle, and topped the Hype Machine charts. Most recently she had a song featured in HBO’s show “The Sex Lives of College Girls”.
Estella says, “We all have our own ways to cope, whether it’s having a cry sitting on the floor of your shower or screaming along to aggressive rock music in the car, buying too many house plants or finding comfort in somebody else’s company, drinking, smoking, eating, the list goes on. We’re all just doing our best”.
The 24 year old Colorado based artist released a slew of singles and was a semi-finalist on New Zealand’s Got Talent.
