Today Babygirl, the Toronto duo of Kirsten Clark and Cameron Breithaupt release their 6 song EP Losers Weepers via Sandlot Records. The duo has previously released singles “Nevermind”, “You Were In My Dream Last Night”, and “Easy.” For the EP release, they premiere the single “Million Dollar Bed.”
“Losers Weepers is a collection of songs written for anybody who feels like an underdog, whether it be in their relationships, careers, whatever,” says Babygirl. “Some of the songs, like ‘Easy’ or ‘Nevermind,’ are written about a break-up where one person was much more invested than the other. Other songs, like ‘Million Dollar Bed’ or ‘Today Just Isn’t My Day’ are more about navigating life with a gnawing sense of disappointment. We made an effort to offset some of the bummer lyrics by making the productions playful and sweet, almost hopeful. We always want to make it feel bittersweet.”
Recently teaming up with Spotify Canada to be featured as one of their RADAR Canada artists, Babygirl have solidified their position as a one to watch for this year. Accomplished songwriters who also recently co-produced Lauv’s “Canada ft. Alessia Cara,”
Hannah Judge is an Ottawa based artists under the name Fanclubwallet. Named in honor of a Dennis the Menace wallet that belonged to her father, fanclubwallet began as a catch-all for Judge’s lo-fi musical musings, created using children’s keyboards in an effort to directly conjure her intended sound in as uncomplicated a manner as possible.
Her debut EP Hurt Is Boring comes out on May 14. After a Crohn’s disease flare-up which left her bedridden, Judge worked with producer Michael Watson on the EP.
Hurt is Boring perfectly captures the innate balance of our stunted reality by tackling big feelings through the lens of emotional distance. “It’s about taking the good with the bad,” Judge, whose illness is now in remission, explains. “You can’t really appreciate one without the other.”
Today she releases the single “C’mon Be Cool.” The song perfectly sums up the feeling of moving beyond a moment when your friends are stuck in the past. “I feel like a lot of people might have felt this way during the pandemic,” Judge says of the song’s theme. ”You’re isolated, your life has changed so much in a year, and you realize that maybe everyone else’s lives have not changed in the same manner.
Canadian singer-songwriter Mackenzie Dayle has dropped “Cut You Out.”
“This song was specifically written for, and dedicated to, any human being in the world who has a Toxic person in their life, who they seriously need to cut out. And to celebrate those who have already done so. Whether it be a Friend, Partner, Family member, Co-worker, Employee, Boss, etc, I want to empower anyone listening to take the powerful step of removing them from your life, pronto. Over many years, I myself had some very toxic individuals taking up way too much space, and energy in my life. It took me too long to realize they had to go, especially since they would often reel themselves back in through fake apologies, guilting and gaslighting. After awhile, I realized how much of my power I was giving up to these people, and finally found the courage to cut them out of my life. I released them all from my circle in a short time span after that realization, and it was absolutely AMAZING!” https://www.instagram.com/mackenziedayle/
