Silly Boy Blue (real name, Ana Benabdelkarim) is a singer songwriter and producer from Nantes, France. Today she releases her 2nd single “The Riddle.”

The Riddle talks about someone I never could decode. I wrote this song to remember to always keep focusing on hope, that there is always a place where we feel like we belong.  Hence the chorus’ mantra “Somewhere, you could be fine somewhere, you have to find somewhere, he’s not the one”. To finally find your own bedroom, where you feel safe” says Silly Boy Blue of the song.

Moon Rise City is Lauren Tracy and Indy Laville. They met in Vietnam. Tracy is from South Africa and Laville is from France. Together they make a jazz born sound that is addictive. Today they release “Crawling Slowly.”

Lauren remembers the challenging experience that caused the original songwriting. “It was a tumultuous time and I struggled between the pull of my head and my heart,” she says. The single started off as a love song, but transformed into a powerful breakaway song.

Moon Rise City will be releasing a new song every six weeks leading up to their debut EP Relics of a Bygone in June.

“Goodbye has been written after a breakup. I woke up one day and I finally saw clearly what was happening. I’ve been in a blur since so many days, and then I realized I wasn’t alone, and I wasn’t in love anymore, and I really felt the urge to move on. That’s the day I was waiting for since the beginning of the breakup. I needed to put this into a song, it was my day one in the movie ‘500 days of summer’.”

Her debut album is out next year .
