youcallmecarla releases ‘Remember.’ It’s a good song, unique with well-crafted music production. The track takes you on a joy ride, coasting through different genres like indie pop, synth-pop, and alt-rock, reaching energetic highs but also diving into dark depths, and leveling off at chill moments.

“remember“ is my most personal song and a reflection on the complex relationship between me and my father, who struggled with mental health issues for as long as I can remember. It grapples with the changes in my father over time and the ultimate need to distance myself for my own well-being and freedom. It’s a tribute to the complex feelings that accompany such difficult family situations & conveys the mixed emotions of love, understanding, and pain.”

Carla Freude, a 22-year-old singer/songwriter from Germany, started writing her own songs at 15 and hasn’t stopped since. Cara will drop new songs in the coming months.

The brainchild of songwriter/producer/arranger Sean O’Hagan, the High Llamas, has recently unveiled exciting news about their upcoming album, “Hey Panda,” scheduled for release on March 29, 2024, via Drag City. Simultaneously, the group has treated fans to the release of the title-track single. Reflecting on the inspiration behind “Hey Panda,” O’Hagan shares, “I spent lock down and recovery as a TikTok fan of a Panda bear who ate giant carrots every day. It made me so happy. I think as crazy as TikTok is, it also fosters a community, especially between us and animals… not sure if the animals know. I wanted it to be a Khalid meets Disclosure tune. The subs picking up every beat. But as it’s High Llamas… the key changes are there…sorry.”

In a broader sense, O’Hagan provides insight into the overarching vision of the project, stating, “I’m 64. Have made 40 records. Scored 8 films. And arranged for many. I love the pop aesthetic, especially the fresh and the naive. When I heard J Dilla in the early 2000s, I thought that was the great renewal of contemporary pop production. I did not have the language or skill set to go there. I was also afraid of being judged. So I avoided, or only hinted at this sound. I’m mainly an invisible contributor to music in my day job. I probably have one artistic record left at 64. So this record had to address what I have come to love. Dilla reshaped the world. We live in the finest non-judgmental musical times where the legacies of soul, jazz, and lo-fi indie have produced a hybrid of generous and stunning creativity. I want ‘Hey Panda’ to be of this generation.” CONTINUE READING

Sea Girls have just released their infectious new single, “Young Strangers.” Reminiscent of Neon Trees, the song blends alternative rock, new wave, and pop, delivering a classic pop sound.

The track, co-written with Kid Harpoon, the producer of Harry Styles’ “Harry’s House,” titled “Young,” could find a home on Spotify’s playlists such as Rock This, Indie Rock Road Trip, All New Rock, and Indie Rock Revolution.

The track comes off their third studio album. Frontman Henry Camamile explains the song’s meaning, stating, “Young Strangers’ is about seeing the similarities between two people who have just met. They get talking about their lives, about how they want to prove themselves and find purpose with a desperate need to get out of life’s daily rut. Never met before they realise they’re navigating the same feelings in the world and so are not young strangers anymore.”

Check out Heather Sommer’s track “My Mind Makes Me.” It’s perfect if you’re in the mood for something fun and quirky, with a nice blend of autotune.

The track could be added to Spotify’s Chill Hits: Lo-Fi Beats, Indie Pop, Bedroom Pop, Study Break, and Just Chill playlists.

Heather explains the second verse,”The lyric ‘cause they say when you break just fill the gaps with gold like a shattered piece of glass’ was inspired by the Japanese artform of ‘kintsugi’. I found it incredibly beautiful. They repair pieces of broken pottery by using gold or silver, and in doing so it makes the piece even more beautiful than before. The minute I found out about that technique, I knew I had to put it into a song at some point and I’m so excited that this was finally the song it wound up fitting into perfectly.’”

Heather crossed the 100 million streams threshold on Spotify and has amassed an impressive 567K monthly listeners. Her latest release, ‘my mind makes me,’ is a powerful blend of emo guitar pop with a touch of raw emotions that brings back the 2000s vibes. If you are a fan of Halsey, Demi Lovato, or Avril Lavigne, then you would definitely love this song!
