Pilar Victoria’s debut EP My Name is Pily is out on Feb 26. The EP was produced by Jacob Manson. Victoria is an Argentine-American teenager. She initially began writing her own songs at age 12 and taught herself to play the ukulele, guitar and the piano in between school and learning to skateboard.
“80’s Movie” is a homage to the music and time before Victoria was born. It has that unrequited love story among the safe images of the 80’s wrapped in a dreampop package.
Claire Gohst is a singer-songwriter, violinist, guitarist and music producer. Thrown out of her house when she was 17 for being gay, Gohst attended Berklee School of Music. Her band Paper Citizen has been nominated in both the New England Music Awards and the Boston Music Awards. Today they release “Scratch the Surface.” It is the first track of a new album due out this April.
“This song is about the ever changing world we live in.. the fast pace we run with, the desolation of our cities, and the digital stations we have created to connect. No one really knows in which ways the world changes, but we’re all in it and ready for the ride. Our personal expression is more valuable than ever, and how this is only the beginning of it all.. can we still touch with one another in the same ways? How can I still reach out to understand you behind these walls we’ve created? Is it all just perception, smoke and mirrors? Will we ever get to feel each other’s presence and who we really are behind the curtain?”
Neska was born in Tel Aviv and lives in LA. She is influenced by Amy Winehouse and Billie Eilish. She is backed by her twin sister Libi. Today she releases her debut EP The Repel of a Young Girl along with the video “Familiar Traces.”
Lisey Tigra grew up in Columbia and is now in London working with people like Brett Shaw. Shaw is working with her on her EP much as he did with Laga Gaga, Foals and Florence + The Machine. Today she releases “Crime Scene.”
Speaking more on the track, Lisey explained: “This track is essentially about the search of truths within us and others that are sometimes hard to confront but must be brought to light. It is about acknowledging how our darker nature drives us to get involved in harmful situations and wanting to know what drives other people to hurt us. It is about wanting clarity in a world that is shady and obscure.”
Imogen Clark is back. She has a new EP called Bastards coming in May. The EP is produced by Mike Bloom. The new track is “Forget About London.”
“In the middle of last year, I went through a really tough breakup and was stranded in London for the aftermath,” recalls Imogen. “I got swept up by this guy, I was on the rebound and found myself falling for him, but in the end he led me on and left me heartbroken.”
