Julia Wolf

Indie-pop songstress Julia Wolf is coming for blood on her latest release “Dracula.” While the title pays homage to Julia’s enthusiasm and infatuation for all things spooky, “Dracula” brings light to those around who can’t look in the mirror, similar to the titular namesake the track derives from.

“Dracula” marks the fourth single from Julia’s eagerly-awaited debut album, Good Thing We Stayed, which drops via BMG on Jan. 13, 2023.

“Spending most of my youth on the bleachers really gave me the time to observe and learn how to read a room,” Julia shares of the track’s underlying theme. “ In being the quiet person in the room – you really get to see the lines people are willing to cross to get what they want.”

“As someone who is a diehard horror fan I wanted to use our beloved Dracula, the vampire who can’t see his own reflection, as a way to call out people who throw the most shade while hiding behind closed doors or phones” Julia continues. “People get so two-faced and think they’ve fooled everyone around them when really the spotlight couldn’t be shining down any brighter.”

Tianna Esperanza

Tianna Esperanza shares today her newest song “Three Straight Bitches From Hell,” the fourth to be released from her upcoming debut album for BMG. 

The rising star has been gaining attention as a talented lyricist and artist who embodies a depth of talent and heart well beyond her 22 years. On “Three Straight Bitches From Hell” Esperanza tells the tale of being queer and falling in love with people who are straight.

On the new track, Tianna shares how her personal experiences became the inspiration for the track saying, “As a queer person, falling for straight people is so common at some point in your life that it’s almost a right of passage. When writing this song, I looked back on when I faced this same fate and it made me laugh that it happened countless times. I had humor in mind while writing this song but I also didn’t want to shy away from how painful it felt as a young person still figuring out my identity and feeling rejected. I used the three-headed dog, Cerberus of Hades from Greek mythology as a metaphor for three different women. It’s dark humor maybe, but I thought others might find the humor in all of it too and relate to the larger story of looking for love in the wrong people.”

Safiyah Hernandez

15-year-old newcomer Safiyah Hernandez has released “Skateboard” via BMG/Young Forever.

“I wrote ‘Skateboard’ with my producer Stari during a difficult period of time. I was skating a lot and music was a way to clear my head,” shares Safiyah. “I was going on drives with my dad and he was playing all his favorite 80s hip hop albums. It was East Coast stuff like A Tribe Called Quest and KRS-One. I felt a release of all this negative energy whenever I heard this music or skated and that’s what influenced the creation of this song.”

Australian pop iconoclast Betty Who announces her upcoming album BIG!, out October 14th via BMG. New single “She Can Dance” is out today.

Directed by Aerin Moreno (Madison Beer, Sofi Tukker), the aqua-tinged “She Can Dance” video sees Betty Who come into her own. There’s no elaborate backdrop, just Betty and a crew of talented dancers. Moreno’s vision places all the emphasis on the singer’s story and infectious dance moves.

“She Can Dance” is about as autobiographical as I could get,” Betty says about the single. “I knew making this album that the stories had to be true, that it had to feel scary and more vulnerable than ever. So without further ado, I present to you a retelling of the facts of my life as I see them. She was never perfect, but at least she tried and had a great time along the way. I hope “She Can Dance” makes you feel like YOU can dance through the trying times.”

Mothica

Los Angeles-based alt-pop multi-media artist MOTHICA has announced her dynamic and emotionally charged sophomore album Nocturnal due out July 1 via Heavy Heart Records – her imprint with Rise Records/BMG. The album follows the 2021 EP forever fifteen which features the hit single “buzzkill” that to date has amassed over 30M+ streams.

While MOTHICA’s self-released debut record Blue Hour (2020) was inspired by the sky’s final moments before complete darkness, Nocturnal descends into nighttime, reflecting on MOTHICA’s strange relationship with sleep. At seventeen tracks, Nocturnal evokes the imagery and feeling of the late-night hours and follows an ethereal narrative that explores the darker aspects of her mind. The album’s interludes are voiced by a live-action moth character designed by Mothica herself. The album was written and recorded over the course of 2021 with various producers and collaborators, including Colin Brittain (Papa Roach, 5SOS) who helmed the previously released single “CASUALTY.” Nocturnal sees MOTHICA create alt-pop music that is equal parts heavy and hopeful.

​​“A lot of the songs touch on darkness and being self-destructive,” says MOTHICA. “‘Blue Hour’ was a transitional moment where I got sober. I was more of an emotional wreck, trying to figure out my life. This is me fully planted, making a very visual album that has a complete concept behind it. With this album, I wanted to feel more empowered.”

Alongside the announcement comes a the single featuring the unassuming love song “BEDTIME STORIES.”

June 6th, 2022

Pop icon, singer-songwriter Betty Who releases an anthemic new single, “Blow Out My Candle” via BMG.

“Blow Out My Candle” is a triumphant return to form for Betty Who. On the ‘80s-inspired song, Betty channels her infectious spirit with a newfound level of insight and introspection. The track is a catchy ode to perseverance, with a chorus that activates the dancefloor: “You can blow out my candle, but you you’ll never put out my fire.” The video, directed by Tyler Cunningham, finds Betty embracing the ‘80s aesthetic as she dances around in a Jamie Lee Curtis-inspired workout leotard, sweatband, and high socks as she sings about self confidence and love.

“It’s been a long couple years for all of us. I spent my time off learning to bake (of course)…and incessantly thinking all day and all night about what kind of music I wanted to return with. “Blow Out My Candle” is the story I want to share most. The feeling I held onto in the darkest moments of the last couple years. I hope it gives you the confidence and motivation it gives me,” says Betty Who on the single.

“Blow Out My Candle” – written by Betty and co-produced with longtime friend and collaborator Martin Johnson (“The Night Game/Boys Like Girls”) – is the perfect primer to announce a new chapter for Betty.

Showing yet another dimension of Betty’s versatility, she is making her reality TV debut by hosting Amazon Studios’ new dating show The One That Got Away. Produced by Amazon Studios and Fulwell 73 and executive produced by Elan Gale (FBoy Island, The Bachelor franchise), The One That Got Away premieres on June 24th. The show is a time-traveling, experimental dating series where six people searching for their soulmates are given the chance to explore a lifetime of missed connections as, one by one, people from their pasts enter through “The Portal” to surprise them and take their shot at love.

Los Angeles-based alt-pop singer-songwriter MOTHICA shares “Last Cigarette” via Heavy Heart Records – her imprint with Rise Records/BMG. The track features Antiguan-German singer-songwriter Au/Ra.

“I wrote ‘Last Cigarette’ about someone I met who reminded me of myself in a toxic way,” shares MOTHICA. “We shared a lot of pessimistic tendencies, and it reminded me of trying to quit cigarettes, something that we all know is bad for you, but there’s still this allure to be caught in a negative cycle.”

March 11th, 2022

Los Angeles-based alt-pop singer-songwriter MOTHICA has released her powerful new single “SENSITIVE” via Heavy Heart Records – her imprint with Rise Records/BMG. The honest and vulnerable track is an anthem for introverts everywhere.

“I wanted to make the most upbeat and aggressive song about being an introvert,” says MOTHICA. “Because that’s how it feels to me when I have trouble expressing my emotions, sometimes it comes out as anger and frustration of being misunderstood. So we combined a metal guitar with a driving dance bass to illustrate this emotion just in time for Pisces season.”

Growing up in Oklahoma, MOTHICA found openly talking about mental health struggles to be taboo and looked to the internet for a sense of community. Though MOTHICA has been writing music since she was a kid, she did not begin pursuing music until she was 18 producing and releasing her songs independently online. Embarking on a journey of self-expression and exploration through music, MOTHICA has since released a handful of EPs, countless singles, and her 2020 debut record Blue Hour.

MOTHICA will hit the road this summer with Coheed and Cambria, and Dance Gavin Dance beginning July 12 in Miami, FL. Tickets are on sale now. MOTHICA will also make an appearance at Aftershock Festival in Sacramento this fall.

Tianna Esperanza is a singer, songwriter, and storyteller who embodies a depth of talent and heart well beyond her 21 years.

Esperanza also happens to be the granddaughter of punk legend Paloma (“Palmolive”) McLardy, who founded the London-based 1970s all-girl punk band The Slits and later played with The Raincoats.

Today, during Black History Month, Tianna releases her soulful, partially spoken-word debut single “Lewis” via BMG. The track is an homage to Lewis H. Michaux, the owner of Harlem’s historic African National Memorial Bookstore. This single is accompanied by a stunning, Peter Campbell (Saba)-directed video.

 

Esperanza was inspired to write “Lewis” after watching Michaux recite an original poem in the 2011 documentary The Black Power Mixtape 1967-1975. Lewis woke me up to the reality of classism, racism, and religious oppression, and where they connect American people of all races. I began to think about how that struggle was interwoven in the fabric of my multiracial identity and I felt empowered by Lewis to own my voice.”

Ladyhawke (‘Pip’ Brown) will release her hotly anticipated new album Time Flies this Friday, November 19 on BMG.

Ladyhawke

Time Flies fuses intimate subject matter such as motherhood, mental health, postnatal depression & recovering from a serious skin cancer condition, with upbeat guitar-led rock and irresistibly catchy electronic elements. “I am so happy, and relieved, and feeling all the feelings that Time Flies is finally coming out this Friday,” shares Pip. “Burnished in the flames of 2020+2021 – this album means so very much to me, and I can’t wait for you to listen, and dance in your living room (or cry). Let it be the catharsis for you that it was for me.”

To celebrate the release of the album Ladyhawke released the new song and video for “My Love.”

“My Love” which Ladyhawke describes as “the feeling of being taken for granted, not listened to, ignored, and how that sort of love can fuel a fire inside.” Shot in two separate corners of the world (8,819.55 miles apart!), the emotionally intimate music video was directed by Anthony Caronna in NYC and choreographed by Madeleine Sami in Aotearoa, New Zealand.

Natalie Imbruglia has announced her forthcoming new album, Firebird, set for release on September 24 via BMG. Alongside the announcement, Natalie has shared the first single taken from the album, the instantly catchy “Build It Better”, accompanied by the single’s official video.

New album ‘Firebird’ was written in an array of international locations alongside Albert Hammond Jr of The Strokes, Romeo Stodart of The Magic Numbers, KT Tunstall, Eg White (Adele, Dua Lipa, Sam Smith), Luke Fitton (Little Mix, Girls Aloud), Fiona Bevan (One Direction, Ed Sheeran), Rachel Furner (Little Mix, Jason Derulo, Craig David) and more, touching on themes of independence, vulnerability, the juxtaposition of strength and fragility, revealing Natalie’s newfound sense of confidence.

In contrast, the album was almost entirely recorded in lockdown, produced remotely by Natalie and My Riot with additional production from Albert Hammond Jr, Gus Oberg (The Strokes, Albert Hammond Jnr) and Romeo Stodart (Magic Numbers).

 Discussing the album, Natalie says “Making this album has been such a profound and satisfying experience. Having gone through a long period of what essentially was writer’s block, it was sometimes hard to envisage getting to this place. Before the pandemic, I started the process of writing this album in London and soon after, I headed to Nashville. With each session and new collaborator, I started to gain confidence, find my voice again, and craft the sound and style that felt authentic to me. It’s been such a privilege to work with such an array of talent on Firebird. I just can’t wait for people to finally hear it.”

 New single “Build It Better” is the first to be lifted from the forthcoming ‘Firebird’. Though unintentional, it could be about a world recovering from a pandemic. Natalie describes the single as “surrendering to the chaos and seeing what’s on the other side of it is a good life lesson. Letting something fall apart, and being okay with that, is something that I have had to do in my life, numerous times, but especially moving into this record and becoming a mum. So I’m really excited about that song, and about the video, which is total escapist fun – the world needs that right now.”
