Albums | Emma Rae Releases Pop Rock single ‘Kids These Days’

Posted by on August 14, 2022

Emma Rae is an upcoming Stamford, CT-based pop vocalist and songwriter. Her upbringing in a house with a jazz trombonist father and vocalist/guitarist mother has heavily influenced her writing and musical ear. Her new single “Kids These Days” has a different sounding vibe to it compared to prior releases, leaning more into the pop punk and rock space but still being grounded in the pop space. Read a quote on the new track below now and check it out above. Enjoy!

“Kids These Days is about the frustration I feel when I think about the kind of world the kids of today are growing up in. I teach music to kids on the side and hearing some of the stuff they think about and go through on a daily basis feels so far removed from how I grew up. Social media plays a massive part in this, they all seem to grow up so much faster than I did. The awkward stage seems to be completely bypassed and the level of maturity needed is much higher than it once was. Its a nostalgic feeling while also feeling anxious, frustrated, and kinda angry. I won’t deny there’s a small jab at GenZ culture in there as well but it’s all in good fun.”

Albums | ABRACADABRA by Sasha Chaa is a fun & feel good listen

Posted by on August 12, 2022

Bilingual North African musician Sasha Chaa has released a new summer soaked track via “ABRACADABRA.” The song’s production is lead by Amapiano (African drums), pianos, strings, with slick Pop and R&B undertones. This is the first time I’ve heard of this artist so I was pleasantly surprised by the newly discovered artist. Lyrically, “ABRACADABRA” talks about how she’ll walk away from love that isn’t reciprocated, which is a fully understandable message that will resonate with most listeners. The hook for this one is stuck in my head and likely will be for the next few days! Check it out above.

We thought about “ Jump” or “screenshot” but that seemed too basic. When i made the artwork I wanted it to be GTA inspired because The beat inspired me of the game, and in the game there’s a bunch of strips with clubs on there. So we came up with “Vice Avenue” referencing the game GTA Vice City”

The emotional ballad once again shows off her songwriting and melody creating skillset, proving she is a Pop artist to keep an eye on this year. For fans of Taylor Swift, Alessia Cara, and Olivia Rodrigo. Check out a quote from her on the release below and stream “Waves” above now!

“I wrote waves at the end of eighth grade, when I started to realize that everything was changing. I had recently switched schools, and I was about to start high school. I had this overwhelming feeling of realizing that I wasn’t a kid anymore. Instead, my life was now plagued with worry about tests and relationships and things that, in the long run, don’t really matter. Waves was a moment of realization for me- I was growing up. My life was no longer focused on fun and fairytales, and I was nostalgic for a simpler, easier time. Waves captures a feeling of nostalgia and pain, wishing you would’ve cherished simplistic times when they existed and wondering how you ended up where you are.” – Gillian Heidi
