LEEPA releases the angst song so far it just sucked. Fans of Olivia Rodrigo, Avril Lavigne, Tate McRae, Gayle, and Dylan will enjoy. The singer-songwriter from Berlin also dropped a video for the track that finds LEEPA getting together with her friends releasing their own personal frustrations.
The track was Spotify’s focus single for their EQUAL GSA campaign during Reeperbahn Festival – including a Time Square billboard and support such as the OOH campaign, showcase, and talk about equality during Reeperbahn Festival.
“so far it just sucked’ is about a crush I’ve had for a very long time, with whom it never worked out, even though we always felt that both of us wanted it. I always imagined how everything could be so simple and nice, but up until this point it just sucked – that’s where the title stems from. How come it always sucked, when we love each other so much?! It really makes no sense at all! Several circumstances and people have also been involved in preventing this from happening, and that just pisses me off!” – LEEPA
Singer-songwriter Lewis Capaldi has dropped the official video for the track Forget Me. The self-described chubby Scottish popstar shot the clip at Pikes Hotel in Ibiza with director Louis Bhose. The famous hotel was the setting for the 1983 WHAM! video “Club Tropicana.” With “Forget Me,” Lewis and Louis set out to duplicate the iconic clip, shot for shot. Watch the “Forget Me” here.
“‘Forget Me’ is a song that’s so dear to my heart and I definitely feel like it’s my best tune yet,” says Lewis Capaldi. “It’s about a break up I went through where after a year, the only real contact I had with my ex was seeing her ‘post-me’ life play out on her Instagram. I was at a point where I was feeling pretty miserable and she seemed like she was moving on and having the best time, thriving, and I hated it. It seemed unfair to me that she appeared happy while I was hurting, and I was fearful she might have forgotten about me completely, so I wrote a song about it.”
“You hear a sad song and you expect a sad video. There’s catharsis in that. But to go in the other direction completely felt more in line with the Lewis that walked onstage at Glastonbury in full Noel Gallagher getup,” says director Louis Bhose, who also shot the video for Capaldi’s “Grace”.
“The performance is classic Capaldi: ‘yeah, no bother, just singing this song with a cocktail in my hand. I’m fine, not thinking about my ex, here at Club Tropicana.’”
Of course Capaldi’s mother loves the track adding “It’s not the best song I’ve ever heard, but I do like it.”
The Norwegian singer songwriter landed on several Spotify chill and pop playlists with her previous releases while the new track landed on Spotify’s New Music Friday.
thea kicked off her music journey studying jazz-vocals at the Oslo Academy of Music. She previously toured with SIGRID and Konradsen and will tour Europe opening for AURORA. The Bergen-born singer now resides in Copenhagen where biking in the rain and exploring the city led to the experiences spoken about on ‘While He Is Still Asleep’.
“It made me appreciate how silence can teach you a lot. But it also made me extremely restless, and I realised how much I need to sing to find meaning in life. Sounds cliché, but for me it’s true,” thea says, having travelled to Italy as well as the USA during this time, inspiring some of the songs on the new album while also producing it alongside Andrew Keller. “I met so many people that I sort of carried with me – and so the songs in this album are small novels about different people that I’ve met, people I know, people I don’t know, and some stories from my own life.” – thea wang
Estella Dawn released her 7th single of 2022 Steal Your Girl. Fans of pop, neo soul, and rock will enjoy. Like her previous singles, the New Zealand-born and raised multi-instrumentalist delivers with confidence and zeal.
Estella says,”I was browsing Soundcloud and this song by a rapper came on where he was talking in a really derogatory fashion about women and I sat there and thought “you know who really doesn’t deserve woman? You… But you know who kind of does? …Me” so I wrote this cheeky little song about stealing his girl!
With over 40,000 Spotify monthly listeners, the 25 year old Colorado based artist released several singles and was a semi-finalist on New Zealand’s Got Talent.
Skylar Lee drops the 80’s inspired disco track Modern Art. You’ll love if you want something upbeat ala Dua Lipa and Maisie Peters. Skylar landed a feature in Rolling Stone Mag and gained support from Nashville’s 96.7FM, Underground Music Collective, as well as ASCAP’s Writers Showcase with Big Yellow Dog Publishing.
Tell me about how your new song came about?
I actually wrote this song with two songwriting friends of mine, Hannah Diones and Kassidy Knight — they’re absolutely some of my favorite people in the world. When we went into the session, I think I was going on a funny rant about some person I knew, and we ended up looking up photos of hipster-looking guys on Google! We were dying of laughter and said that those people would be the kind of people would walk into the Louvre museum and criticize the whole thing, only to buy a piece of cheap looking ‘modern art’…and the rest is history!
The song is very disco 80’s, now that we moved back to the 90’s, are you going to stay in the 80’s?
That’s a great question! I’ve always been an old soul, and my musical tastes have always been influenced by the 70s and 80s — Tears for Fears, Elton John, Madonna, Fleetwood Mac to name a few! For now, that’s definitely where my heart is, but who knows, maybe my style will change over time!
Modern art is a great female empowerment anthem, have you written your best song yet?
First of all, thank you so much! I like to think that hopefully with every song, my sound and style matures as I put out new material. I will say that this one is by far the release I’m most excited about, and I hope people love it as much as I do.
