"Honest" by Congee

"Perfect Human Specimen" by Lynks

"I Don't Think I Love You Anymore" by Julia Church
Julia Church brings raw emotion straight from the journal in the cathartic “I Don’t Think I Love You Anymore”, which tracks a soulful path to emotional liberation from regret about a relationship. On the song, Church says, “I don’t think I love you anymore” is about the freedom that comes with resurfacing after a heartbreak. That feeling of untethering from someone who consumed your thoughts and realizing how empowering it is to no longer need them. For years I found myself pining over someone that, I realized, I didn’t even really know anymore. The chasm I felt didn’t really exist, It was just the memory of an old love that kept me anchored until I was able to let go of it. I wrote it like a journal entry and every lyric has specific personal significance to me. I wanted to be as honest as possible.”

"Tight Bend" by Chintzy Stetson
Chintzy Stetson ticked off the milestone of a headline gig in London this week, and this rising alt-pop star is keeping the momentum up with the vibrantly candid new single “Tight Bend”. On the song, he says, “The track is about when the carousel goes too fast and all the spinning plates wash into one tie dye of hell. It’s very much a vomit of regurgitated information absorbed through my television during the second lockdown. I wrote it in one go and recorded it at home in London through the pandemic and sent it to Tom Ungerer (Sam Fender) to produce it. It was originally 16 verses but has been cut down to 5.”
"FOOL" by Georg' Estelle
Georg’ Estelle understands the importance of timing, so she’s dropped her new single “FOOL” today – a bold and lush ode to confidence and the empowerment it brings. On the song, she says, “"This song came straight from the heart, I was hurting at the time and I was angry with the person who lied to me. I used all the emotions inside me to write a letter to him and to myself in an hour or so, the pen really took over my body. I love performing this song because I know there’s always someone who can relate. But this is no melancholic song, it’s about taking the lead and saying “goodbye” to what’s not good for you anymore."
