Imagine this: You’re wearing what can only be described as your absolute *prettiest* dress when you see it. The Godforsaken engagement photo from your ex. Damn it.
“Prettiest Dress” was co-written with Zach Ardente (Doze) and Bruce Wiegner (Bruiser), and produced by Bruce Wiegner (who also recently produced Katy Perry’s Electric, Cray, Set It Off, among others).
“Prettiest Dress” is the first of many singles YaSi is releasing throughout 2022, from slow-burning ballads to pop meets R&B, showcasing her versatility as songwriter and artist, with some tracks even switching seamlessly between Farsi (Persian) and English.
Neoma – Tears at Bae
Ecuadorian singer-songwriter-producer Carla Huiracocha is Neoma. Today she releases “Tears at Bae”, the first single from her upcoming album HYPERREAL which will be released April 29 via Soundbreaker Records.
HYPERREAL is the follow-up (and sequel) to Neoma’s 2019 LP, Real. Now based in Denver, CO, Neoma, originally from Cuenca, Ecuador, has perfected her unique blend of bilingual vocals, sharp pop songwriting, and more experimental electronic flourishes. Speaking on the new single “Tears at Bae,” Neoma reflected on it’s inspiration, calling it “…a fierce, empowering, “bad bitch” song, inspired by a former lover and the end of a stagnant relationship.”
For over 20 years this music festival has brought big names to Denver while also showcasing the local scene. This year over 170 artists will appear on 15 stages over 3 days. Last year the festival was a virtual 3 hour event. This year’s showcase includes Pinegrove, Remi Wolf, Shannon & The Clams, Sofia Valdes among its 13 headliners. Local acts include returning artists of Bellhoss, Slow Caves, Wildermiss, Izcalli and more. There are also new faces including Lnlygirl, The Grand Alliance, Deadluv and more.
“After 20 years of Underground Music Showcase, we were thrilled to be able to carry-on our tradition virtually last year by raising $75,000 for independent musicians” shares Casey Berry, owner of the festival. “With that said, we couldn’t be happier to be in-person for 2021 to not only support live music and local bands, but to support more than a dozen independent bars and restaurants on Broadway!”
UMS is working closely with city and state officials to make sure we rage safely in 2021. This might include reduced capacity (especially at indoor venues), and potentially limiting ticket sales to ensure proper distancing as required. UMS has every intent to become a good example of how to return to in-person, live music festivals in a safe and celebratory manner, and will be monitoring health directives in real time as the big weekend approaches.
