Suki Waterhouse – Moves

Suki Waterhouse has released a brand-new single, “Moves” which comes with a visually stunning video directed by Cameron McCool. The track is the first to be released off her forthcoming full-length album, due out in 2022 via Sub Pop. “Moves” is Executive Produced by Grammy-Nominated Producer & Songwriter Brad Cook (Bon Iver, War On Drugs, Snail Mail, Waxahatchee) “Moves” is accompanied by companion track “My Mind,” a song that shows off Suki’s beautiful, airy vocals.

Listen to “Moves” and “My Mind” HERE. Watch “Moves” HERE.

Suki Waterhouse catalogs the most intimate, formative, and significant moments of her life through songs. You might recognize her name or her work as a singer, songwriter and actress, but you’ll really get to know the multi-faceted artist through her music. Growing up in London, Suki gravitated towards music’s magnetic pull and always saw the medium as a way of expressing creativity and telling stories. Previous singles “Brutally”, “Good Looking” and “Valentine” drew comparisons to the Paisley Underground sound of Mazzy Star and to the 60s influenced girl group reimagining of bands like Stockholm’s The Concretes and Glasgow’s Camera Obscura.

Megan Jasper, CEO of Sub Pop said, “Suki’s songs are smart, radiant, and incredibly engaging, much like her personality. We knew the minute we heard them that they were important and needed to be out in the world. Sub Pop is over the moon to be working with her!”

“Moves” illuminates the nuances of her sound. With gentle guitar strumming throughout the verses and a rhythmic bass permeating the chorus, Waterhouse warns she might “put some goddamn moves on you” with beautiful, haunting vocals. “Moves” is a song that dreams about the impossibility of, one day, being struck by a person who changes the course of your life.

“Moves” is a song I first started writing one night on the couch, picking up the guitar and seeing what came out,” writes Suki. “It was a moment where I felt the urge to both sever a bond of connection with somebody and yet at the same time pursue and put my trust back in love.”

ENHYPEN – DILLUSION : DILEMMA

Six months after wowing worldwide audiences with their 2nd Mini Album BORDER : CARNIVAL, your new K-pop destination ENHYPEN has made another splashing return with their 1st Studio Album DIMENSION : DILEMMA.

The rising authentic storytellers who expressed their complex yet sincere emotions experienced before and after crossing the border of debut with their ‘BORDER’ series, now come to realize that this world is even more multidimensional than they expected in their new ‘DIMENSION’ series.

DIMENSION : DILEMMA opens the doors to the new ‘DIMENSION’ series. After entering a multidimensional world, where many values collide, the septet face a dilemma, questioning their identity while realizing their desires for the first time. The album, however, captures their resolution to put this dilemma aside and dash forward to find a solution. Producers of HYBE’s labels led by “hitman” bang and Wonderkid, who have been with ENHYPEN from the very beginning, once again participated in the production of the band’s latest discography to magnify the musical quality of the album which consists of eight tracks: “Intro : Whiteout”, lead single “Tamed-Dashed,” “Upper Side Dreamin'”, “Just A Little Bit”, “Go Big or Go Home”, “Blockbuster feat. YEONJUN of TOMORROW X TOGETHER”, “Attention, please!”, and “Interlude: Question.”

The lead single “Tamed-Dashed” is a New Wave track reminiscent of the 80’s that calls into question a dilemma of choice: to be “tamed” by one’s desires, or to “dash” to find the answers to address one’s predicament. It depicts the vivid dilemma of the seven boys unable to decide which path to pursue between the paradoxical contradictions and conflict of their desires.

The music video for “Tamed-Dashed” raises curiosity from the start as it begins with NI-KI reaching out to grab a rugby ball on the ground. It continues with scenes of the septet dressed in uniforms exuding a sense of freedom as they hang out and toss a ball to one another. Against the backdrop of a school gym, field, and blue ocean, ENHYPEN show off their powerful, yet refreshing choreography to complete a perfectly synchronized performance that delivers a cool and refreshing feel. Throughout the music video, the members’ past selves dressed in different clothing continuously intersect with the present, and concludes with NI-KI eventually taking the ball from the ground.

Reactions to the return of the record-breaking K-pop prodigies were massive. The band trended on social media channels with the release of various album-related content and broke their own record with the new album surpassing 920,000 pre-order copies, proving their reputation as the new K-pop destination.

Following the release of DIMENSION : DILEMMA at 6 PM KST, ENHYPEN premiered the performance of their new song on Mnet’s Comeback Show at 7 PM KST.

About ENHYPEN

ENHYPEN is the first boy band created by BELIFT LAB, consisting of members JUNGWON, HEESEUNG, JAY, JAKE, SUNGHOON, SUNOO, and NI-KI. Inspired by the hyphen(-) that connects one word to another, ENHYPEN means that seven different boys connect to discover one another and grow together. The group has been smashing from day one since their debut on November 30, 2020 with their first mini album BORDER: DAY ONE. They have caught the attention of viewers worldwide with relatable music and energetic performances and have performed on global shows like MTV Fresh Out Live. The septet also took the “Rookie of The Year” title at four Korean award shows within two months of their debut, proving their reputation as the breakout boyband to watch out for. With the release of their sophomore album BORDER: CARNIVAL in April 2021, the one of a kind global rookies not only topped Japan’s Oricon Daily, Weekly, and Monthly Album Charts, but also peaked at #18 on the Billboard 200 and Artist 100 Charts respectively, solidifying their position as the new destination for K-pop fans everywhere.

Vérité Unveils New Single “Youth”

Singer, songwriter Verite unveils new single Youth. The track was written by the artist in collaboration with Andrew Maury (Lewis Del Mar, Shawn Mendes, RAC) and Zach Nicita (Anne-Marie, Louis The Child, MS MR), who also produced. Click HERE to listen!

Vérité said about the meaning behind the track, Youth is a rare look back. When I was younger I was tangled in a relationship with an older, manipulative, shitty human. Such a par for the course, all too common cliche it actually annoys me. It amazes me how much I thought I needed this person and how small I made myself to accommodate him. How he was someone I’ve had to process, recover from, and become healthy in spite of and I am someone he never thought of again. Youth is about how someone can be so all encompassing to one person while the other views them as such a small blip on a screen that they’d never look back or remember.

In addition, Vérité is set to open for X Ambassadors on their headlining North American tour this fall. Her support dates kick off on November 1st at State Theatre in Portland, ME and wrap on November 20th at Hollywood Palladium in Los Angeles, CA. See routing below and click HERE for more info!

Vérité recently debuted Gone her first single in two years, via NYLON. Co-written and produced by singer-songwriter Madi Diaz and Konrad Snyder, the song reintroduced the musician, capturing the devastating effects of something ending. Carried by haunting crescendos and Vérité’s powerhouse vocals, the track sees the singer pleading for time to stand still for a little while longer before her world turns upside down. The video features stunning visuals with the backdrop of Ojai, CA and was directed by Charlie Manton. Click HERE to watch!

Following the release of her 2017 LP Somewhere In Between, Vérité has become the definition of thriving in the new music industry as an independent artist. Since her project began, Vérité has garnered 250M + streams across all platforms with 1.4+ monthly listeners. Her debut album has over 50M streams, while her cover of The 1975’s Somebody Else has been streamed 111M times.
