Amelia Moore – crybaby

True to her social media handle (@icryatwork), Amelia Moore approaches her music with a fierce commitment to total emotional transparency an irresistible counterpart to her kaleidoscopic alt-pop sound. Both qualities shine on her new single, crybaby. Moore’s bluesy, fluttering vocals cut to the quick as she addresses an ex, “do u like to make me cry baby / cuz u do it all the time baby / when did god give u control of the rain.

Frequent collaborators Pink Slip and Inverness produced the track. Download / stream crybaby, which is from the young singer/songwriter/multi-instrumentalist’s forthcoming EP, HERE.

Moore, who recently wrapped up a sold-out North American tour with Capitol Records label mate FLETCHER, amassed over 10 million combined global streams and two million video views with her first three singles: sweet and sour, vinegar and moves. In less than six months, she’s already approaching 70,000 followers on Spotify.

Ones To Watch named Moore as one of The 25 Artists to Watch in 2022 and she’s been the subject of features in Billboard, DORK, Notion, among others. Hailing her as “our newest alt-pop princess,” The Honey Pop said, “There couldnߣt have been a better song than sweet and sour to introduce us to Amelia’s wildly unpredictable sound. PAPER praised vinegar for having “the most powerful chorus of 2022.” Billboard put moves on its list of 10 Cool New Pop Songs, while The Line of Best Fit observed, “moves has an intoxicating energy and joyous playfulness, setting a new gold standard for an artist used to shattering expectations.

Sam Thompkins – who do you pray to?

One of the fastest rising British male artists of 2022, Sam Tompkins releases the who do you pray to? EP alongside emotive visuals for new single “My Brother” via Republic Records.

With a host of stellar singles already released from the EP; including “Whole,” “Bloodline” and “Hero;” Sam honed his craft across the collection of 7 tracks revealing his unique voice as a songwriter instilled in the narrative arc of his songs.

New single “My Brother” encapsulates his intimate story telling style, as Sam notes; “‘My Brother’ is really special to me. I love it so much. The origin of it is actually a sad but lovely story. When I was about 18, we lost our Nana and at the funeral we had to read the eulogy. I got about 6 words in before being in floods of tears, my brother read the rest and was so strong. Flash forward to last year when my Papa (Grandpa) passed away and I decided to do the eulogy. Sadly because of covid my brother couldn’t make it as he was working away in Canada. This time I got the whole way through it and I remember getting the text from my brother who watched it through a live stream that I smashed it and I felt so proud because the only way I was able to do it was knowing I was the exact age my brother had stepped up and been brave 5 years prior.”

Sam Tompkins is a force to be reckoned with; following his own critically acclaimed singles, the TikTok trending collaboration with Jnr Choi “To The Moon;” a string of viral videos including impressive covers shared via TikTok and grass-roots touring; he has garnered over 11 million monthly listeners on Spotify and amassed a colossal online audience which has grown exponentially over the past year.

The release of this debut body of work is set to cement Sam‘s status as one of the year’s most exciting new artists. His music has already been praised by the likes of MTV, Clash, BBC, and Notion; played across BBC Radio 1 and featured on flagship Spotify editorial playlists.

Matching pop touches to a classic feel, he’s often compared to Sam Fender‘s anthemic truth-seeking or Tom Walker‘s revelatory autobiography. Yet Sam’s work stands alone and is already scaling mountainous heights. His music digs deep, explores the key topics in his life and communicates emotions we all feel, but sometimes can’t put into words.

Elton John and Shawn Mendes are fans, pop phenomenon Bebe Rexha has co-signed his work, while Justin Bieber is a prominent supporter. The two recently hung out in LA, while a video of Justin singing Sam’s single ‘Whole’ has gained more than 2 million views–and counting. Closer to home, JayKae jumped onstage on Sam’s last tour, and renowned UK artists Krept & Konan, Chip and Clean Bandit are fans.

Such a broad spread of support simply represents his audience as a whole; there’s a literal army of TikTok followers moving alongside him, with Sam amassing almost a half million followers on Instagram–more than some very established artists. In fact, he already has more Instagram followers than some winners at the BRITs last year. 

Selling out every venue he puts his name against, Sam’s live prowess stretches across Europe. Next month, Sam will be one of the first UK artists to tour Europe in a bus since the pandemic hit as he heads out on a mammoth European tour, containing a packed out Kentish Town Forum date on April 8th.

From his humble beginnings busking on the streets of Brighton, EP who do you pray to? is set to continue Sam’s momentum and rise on the international pop stage.

Hope Tala by Rosie Matheson for EP Girl Eats Up Sun as announced by 360 MAGAZINE.

Hope Tala x Anime – Cherries

Today, London-based up and comer Hope Tala reveals the official video for her latest single, “Cherries” feat. Amine, which is taken from her stunning new EP Girl Eats Sun, out now. The video was directed by Anna Fearon.

WATCH THE VIDEO FOR “CHERRIES” FEAT. AMINE HERE!
LISTEN TO GIRL EATS SUN HERE!

Girl Eats Sun solidifies Hope Tala as an artist set to do big things in 2021. The EP has already received praise from Billboard, Clash, Dork, MTV, Notion, The Line Of Best Fit, Wonderland and more, with LADYGUNN proclaiming, “Girl Eats Sun is a forever vibe,” and Euphoria Magazine stating, “Girl Eats Sun is a pure embodiment of the energy brought into it.”

With her unique blend of R&B and bossa nova, Hope Tala has crafted a sound that already feels recognizable to her, and there is plenty more on the way. Speaking on “Cherries,” Hope Tala states:

“Since I started writing music, I’ve used fruit imagery; I’ve always been inspired by the Garden of Eden and the story of Adam and Eve. I think of ‘Cherries’ as being a really corporeal song –  there’s a lot of lyrical content about how the body portrays feeling and emotion, and when I was writing it I used the symbol of cherries as my focal point to help me understand where these two worlds – material and emotional – collide.”

With EP track “All My Girls Like To Fight” currently spinning across BBC Radio 1 as Introducing Track Of The Week, Hope Tala has had a prolific couple of months, returning after a year away to reveal “All My Girls Like To Fight” and “Crazy” to widescale plaudits from press around the globe, as well as featuring on key Spotify playlists Pollen & Alternative R&B. Girl Eats Sun is the follow up to Hope Tala’s stellar EP Sensitive Soul, a project acclaimed by areas such as Rolling Stone, Vogue and more and featuring Hope Tala’s breakthrough single “Lovestained,” a track which has racked up over 10 million streams since last year. Speaking on Girl Eats Sun, Hope Tala explains:

“At the core of ‘Girl Eats Sun’ is an assertion of confidence and boldness. The title is a paraphrase of ‘if you can’t take the heat, get out of the kitchen’ – as the girl eating the sun I’m daring and fearless. I chose this title because I feel as if the songs and stories on this project are more vivid and inventive than anything I’ve released thus far, and I’ve pushed my sound in different, exciting directions.”

Now represented by Dina Sahim and Wassim “SAL” Slaiby at SAL&CO (The Weeknd, Doja Cat, Brandy, Bryson Tiller), Hope Tala is ending 2020 with a flourish. Look out for more in 2021.
