Alternative | Fiery Indie-Pop Artist Sophie Kilburn Shares Debut EP ‘My Room Made Public’

Posted by on September 12, 2021

Sophie’s new My Room Made Public, is a four-track EP with an indie-pop inspired style fused with a classic 70s flare throughout. It is a bold sonic fusion of old school rocker & modern pop warrior that sits neatly alongside ALT Pop heroes like Haim, Phoebe Bridgers and Soccer Mummy that have successfully contributed to a new genre that fits in both the past and the present, with a heavy emphasis on storytelling. Check out a thorough quote on the project after the jump and stream Sophie’s new EP above now.

“The concept of the EP started from my growing hunger turned obsession with wanting to be heard. What do I have to do to be really listened to, to be taken seriously as an artist, as a woman, as a person? How much do I have to share to feel like I’m enough? I spiraled, thinking ‘it’s just not in the cards for me’. The noise in my head got so loud that it really started to well… piss me off. I became acutely aware of how strong the pressure of sharing everything with everyone all the time is. There is this fear that if you don’t share it all your identity is no longer validated or worthwhile and that can be very dangerous. I don’t want to keep feeling that and I don’t want anyone else feeling that either. The project took on a whole new meaning when the pandemic hit and we were all forced to reflect on ourselves and the world we live in, it made me think well it is more relatable now than ever.  With My Room Made Public, I wanted to create a body of work that is an emotionally open and honest introduction to me as an artist and the songs I write. It is chapter one of what I  hope will become a classic trilogy. At the end of the day, I just want to bring emotional comfort and make people want to fight for what they want out of life, find themselves in their own way and to never settle for something that hurts them. I guess I am trying to do that for myself too  but there is always strength in numbers.”

Pop | Atlanta Rising TalentCi Majr drops debut EP

Posted by on April 19, 2021

In keeping with the bright and sparkling pop soundscapes and narrative lyricism Ci Majr introduced us to through the addictive “Summer Drug” and scintillating indie anthem, “Guillotine”, Ci Majr returns to further unpack the good, the bad and the ugly of romantic love in her dazzling and highly anticipated EP, Side Effects. As Ci Majr’s first full-length project of this kind and her third release of what has been a very strong year for the upcoming singer-songwriter, producer and multi-instrumentalist, the Side Effects EP is somewhat of a magnum opus for the Atlanta native, the journey to which has been a labor of love amongst friends, resulting in a specially curated, 5-track project several years in the making. Sticking to her well-loved approach of narrative and widely relatable songwriting, Ci Majr presents fans and listeners with a bittersweet project which ebbs and flows from track to track, immersing the listener in dramatic storylines, endearing characters and lovestruck misadventures. In Ci Majr’s characteristically warm and charming nature, Side Effects sees Ci Majr explore the thrilling highs and bitter lows of romantic love over shimmering pop beats and playful piano chords, delicately narrating the life cycle of a passionate but short-lived relationship, from its conception into its afterlife, each track with its own unique story and point of view. Tune into the EP above now and read a quote from Ci Majr below now!

“By late summer of 2020, I had about 20 demos and realized it was time for me to put out my first project. I talked to my friend Féz about it who helped me narrow it down to 5 and he agreed to produce the project. It’s really cool because Féz even described how there are some musical themes and instruments he used to tie it all together and I just love how it truly feels like a very well rounded body of pop songs. The visuals were also a very important part of creating the EP. I found Maggy Swain on Instagram and she just had this ethereal/dreamy style of photography that is just so eye-catching and gorgeous.” – Ci Majr

Tune into the sassy single above now and keep your eyes on Mulay, she’s got something special going on here. Read a quote from her after the jump!

“ANTRACYTE is the intro and title track to my debut EP. It’s the soundtrack to the birth of a villain and captures the moment of complete honesty to yourself about the awareness of doing wrong by the ones you love while feeling the inability to turn around. It’s about the desire to taste forbidden fruits, to cross and explore what lies beyond the line and the self-empowering feeling of playing by your own rules defeating the fear of consequences and the power of moral concepts. ANTRACYTE tells a story of contradicting emotions, a story of love, lust, pain and a longing for more. It’s about facing your own darkness and sins, about self-revelation, emancipation and about paying its price, resigning to your fate.”

Hip-Hop | Sugi Dakks Gets Deeply Rooted on new EP

Posted by on November 12, 2020

If you’re a fan of Anderson Paak and Eminem you will likely be a fan of Sugi Dakks music, especially this new ‘Deeply Rooted’ project. The soulful/funky/jazzy influenced hip-hop stylings are a breathe of fresh air in the current clip of rap. The 7-track-release can be streamed above, check out a quote from Dakks on the project below.

‘Deeply Rooted’ is an EP that explores my personal identity, the identity of others, and how we come to shape our identities. When it comes to racism, self-hatred, prejudice, bias, discrimination, and all forms of inequality, all of these are deeply ingrained in our society and deeply ingrained in most everyones personal story. Through this EP, I was able to share my story of how I viewed myself, how it differed from the viewpoints of my peers and the general society, and how bigotry is such a destructive engine that ruins people’s lives, livelihood, and self-worth.”
