A lead single rooted in acknowledging that what one needs is different than what one wants, “Wavy Luv” is an ode to introspection. Fusing indie instrumentation with a compelling vocal blend of hip-hop and R&B, Casper Sun’s single is a nuanced amalgamation of classic styles. Showcasing an impressive mastery of genre-blending techniques, “Wavy Luv” is Casper Sun at his outright best. Singing from the heart, the ethereal creative chronicles a tale of self-desire and passion with an emphasis on treating oneself with unconditional kindness. Speaking on his album’s lead single, Casper Sun says the following: “I know how it feels to get something you’ve wanted for so long, and realize in the end that it’s not what you need. I wrote a story about Casper coming to terms that what he needs is different than what he wants, and the rest of the album explores what those needs are, and how they battle with his passion and desires.”

Constantly innovating her own unique sound, Alice Gray’s musical reach knows no bounds. The San Diego-born, Los Angeles-bred songstress cut her teeth on Garage Band beats before turning to singing and songwriting full time.

Now, Gray boasts a cool 3 Million+ streams on Spotify alone; not to mention, her music has been featured on TV shows including Light As A Feather and Shadowhunters. After debuting hit singles “Del Mar” and “Summer’s Gone” with Aaron Taos in 2020, the indie-pop maven returns with a captivating “Double Decker.” Fusing sonic instrumentation with lush pop beats, Alice Gray creates a spellbinding treat in just over 3-minutes.

Electronic | GhostDragon Drops His Highly Anticipated ‘Strangers Again’ EP

Posted by on June 11, 2021

After releasing smash hit singles including “On My Phone” and “Meaning To,” California-based star GhostDragn finally unveils his Strangers Again EP in full. Featuring 6 highly emotive tracks chronicling love lost and the process of moving on, Strangers Again is GhostDragon at his musical best.

On the EP, the creative says the following: “My extended EP of ‘Strangers Again’ is a collection of collaborations in which the vocalists and I have challenged ourselves to take on a reflective journey this past year. Each song represents a person, who we may know, wanting adoration expressed in different forms at various stages of a relationship. Throughout my songwriting & production process, I’ve been reminiscing the times I had with this special person in my life. It’s frustrating that I’m unable to win her back after many years of knowing this person for so long. The only thing I could do is to accept that we’ll just be unknown acquaintances again. I hope listeners could relate to this EP after a year of being ‘bottled up’ and ‘overthinking’ at home.”

Pop | ALIGN – “When I’m With You” ft. Martina Lynn [Lowly Palace]

Posted by on December 4, 2020

Chicago tropical house mainstay ALIGN returns to esteemed label Lowly Palace for his final release of 2020. His delightful “When I’m With You” featuring Martina Lynn is out now, and serves as the perfect fusion of pop and electronic.

An atypical love song, “When I’m With You” emphasizes the beautiful and healthy parts of a relationship, focusing on unconditional love between two people and leaning on one another for warmth and comfort. Sonically fusing ambient textures with rhythmic cord progressions, ALIGN weaves an emotional tale through upbeat sound scapes.

“I started writing this track by using some guitar plucks and experimenting with a soundscape. I wanted to create an ambient moment, then transition into more of a rhythmic beat. That soundscape became something that I could write chords on top of and develop a beat and melodies. I loved where it was going, but I knew it needed somebody’s story to accompany it. Martina seemed like the perfect fit for the vibe of this track.” – ALIGN

Albums | ALIGN Drops “Second Thoughts” via Lowly Palace

Posted by on March 9, 2020

In his first offering of 2020, Chicago-based ALIGN follows up his lush debut EP Intertwine with an effervescent new single, “Second Thoughts” ft. Becca Krueger. “Second Thoughts” is out now on Lowly Palace.

A vibrant amalgamation of ALIGN’s pop and electronic styles, “Second Thoughts” ft. Becca Krueger is a shining display of the producers’ many talents. Sumptuous synths set the stage from the get go, as Becca Krueger’s sultry smooth voice coaxes listeners into sweet serenity. A backsound riddled with luminous production and whirring melodies, ALIGN’s composition serves as a lovely testament to the producers strengths. Featuring infectious percussive elements reminiscent of ODESZA and Louis The Child, ALIGN’s newest is one to keep coming back to.

“’Second Thoughts’ is something I wrote with the intention of having an overall uplifting atmosphere and vibe. I loved where the track was going instrumentally, and felt like Becca was the missing voice the song needed. Becca’s lyrics provide a really cool balance as she’s narrating something relatable to all of us. I feel that the content of her story and the music itself meet in the middle to provide a nice degree of harmony together.” ALIGN
