In Notion Now: Week 8, enjoy new tunes from Mahalia, Jack Harlow, Fontaines D.C., SEB, Wallice and much more.
"Nail Tech" by Jack Harlow
After a massive 2021 saw him cash in on the success of his debut album, Jack Harlow makes his return with the confident new tune “Nail Tech”, which coincides neatly with his naming as New Balance’s new brand ambassador.
"Letter To Ur Ex" by Mahalia
Mahalia cuts a more introspective tune in her new single “Letter To Ur Ex”, which delves deep into her past relationships to take the learning and healing from those experiences into the future.
"f**k it, i'm the man" by SEB
Notion One to Watch for 2022 SEB throws it back to the 80s with a new analogue-influenced song, “f**k it i’m the man”. On the song, SEB says, “After a blowout argument, I ended up having to permanently cut off family members who did nothing but tell me how much of a disappointment I was. In the chorus I’m trying to be exuberant and confident but that’s only to mask the pain I'm feeling in the verses. From talking to people around me, I know I'm definitely not the only one who’s gone through this. I want fans who are living through that, to feel empowered to do them, regardless of what anybody has to say."
"I Love You" by Fontaines D.C.
A seemingly simple long song turns devastatingly inward on Fontaines D.C.’s new tune, “I Love You”, a song crafted from deep anger at the current political climate and historical atrocities in Ireland.
"Little League" by Wallice
Wallice batters up in her new single “Little League”, another exciting and playful tune from the rising star that shows the huge emotion that can come from the littlest things. On the song, she says, “Little League is about my love of games (board and video) and my competitiveness. I also think people can relate to the fear of not being liked. I can hang out with a single friend for 5 days straight, and still each time they leave I feel like- “oh no, they probably hate me because of something silly like being too competitive during a video game. This song was influenced by "Weird Fishes/ Arpeggi" by Radiohead, a band I grew up listening to."
"House on Fire" by Mimi Webb
Mimi Webb burns down the house with her new tune “House on Fire”, a tongue-in-cheek anthem promising a little bit of vengeance on a former partner.
