He’s been featured in music blogs such as Glasse Factory, Rockdafuqout, Nagamag and playlisted on Spotify’s Fresh Finds Pop and Pop Rising. Townsend writes and produces music for himself and other artists around Nashville.
Townsend reveals about the song: “It’s about the feeling you get when something good has to come to an end. When the concert you waited forever to go to turns the lights on. When the vacation you’ve been planning for the last year is over. Or when the relationship that brought you so much happiness breaks up. After the high everything else feels low and *almost* makes you wish it never happened in”

“In terms of the album theme, we write songs based on our experiences and what we know. It’s definitely honest and heartfelt. Hopefully some of our experiences connect with the people listening to it. With ‘Waste My Time’, it’s about ignoring any discouragement from others and making the most of opportunities and your time. Being selective about what you put energy into. I guess also just chasing a dream or passion and the journey and lessons that come with that.”
KRYSTOF impresses with the track Radio. Think heartbroken emo pop and Dashboard Confessional. The track was released via GRS MUSIC / Global Rockstar GmbH and could find a home on Spotify’s Sad Songs Playlist.
The 19 year old is based out of Carinthia, Austria. Growing up in a musical family, and his mother being a pro folk-singer, KRYSTOF dropped several tracks in 2021. Radio received support from radio including Hitradio Ö3 which is Austria’s biggest. He also received support from Bong Mines Entertainment Uranium Waves, Pop Muzik, and Glasse Factory Soave.
KRYSTOF notes: “Radio is a song about a breakup, where one of the broken-hearted still believes in us, even though they got hurt. I wrote the song after I put out my previous song called One of the Few Things” (I ́m so sure of), because it ended up in a breakup. The song is a message to all the hopeless romantic ones out there”.
Kings favorite Nate Merchant drops his 5th and last single this year I Hate It Here. Since his first release the Los Angeles indie artist has been stuck in the 80’s and doesn’t plan on moving from the neon era. Next year in 2022, when the pandemic over, everything will make sense and the 80’s will make a full blown resurgence. The track was produced by John Taylor from Duran Duran.
Merchant says: “I wrote I Hate It Here during the lockdown back in 2020. It’s really a song that was therapeutic for me and helped me handle being isolated. Initially the production was much darker but Isaiah Tejada got his hands on it and created a beautiful arrangement of sparkly synths which I thought was a great juxtaposition to the lyrics. This was also the first tune I got to work on with John Taylor of Duran Duran who helped bring it across the finish line.”
