LISTEN TO MODUS VIVENDI HERE

“A vital new singer makes her debut…an emo-rap Dark Side Of The Moon …Modus Vivendi suggests Enya and Pink Floyd as much as Frank Ocean…the sound of a realist and fantasist sparring, it reflects an artist still coming into focus on her own thrilling terms.”

“Ms. Balbuena’s voice is the record’s most extraordinary feature… The lush sonic backdrop, infused with strings and gentle drones, conveys an ethereal chamber-music setting altogether unusual for hip-hop and R&B.”

“On ‘Modus Vivendi’, she manages to craft a sound that’s anthemic, and built for festivals and clubs; but within the grooves, she’s precise… This is project sculpted away from current trends.”

“A sprawling journey across the emotional spectrum… while adequately booming, there’s a certain intimacy to ‘Modus;’ there are no featured verses — no voice other than Balbuena’s rasping lines across nearly an hour of music… the singularity of this project beams through with unsettling clarity.”

“She is constantly playing with contrasts—raw and smooth, light and dark, harsh and tender—and the songs on Modus Vivendi seem to shift with her mood.”

About 070 Shake
The title of 070 Shake’s debut album is Modus Vivendi — a Latin phrase used to reference a way of life in which two opposing parties can coexist peacefully. Art has always been Shake’s way of life, whether writing poetry as an outlet for depression or crafting playful rhymes about her teammates on bus rides to high school basketball games. “It was an escape for me with all of the frustrations and voices that were going on in my head. I’ve always felt that I had to do something with these words.”

All the way back to her childhood, this individualistic charm has always led the New Jersey-raised talent to stand out. Traditional schooling just wasn’t for Shake. Rather, she stuck out from peers with a natural knack for poetry and a profound love for basketball, even being deemed “Shake” for her crossover dribble. As she grew older, Shake became known for her rebellious nature, constantly causing trouble at school with countless pranks and a disinterest toward academics.

It was during these years, however, that Shake began to hone her artistic identity. From writing poems to falling in love with the cadences and storytelling of artists such as Alicia Keys and Kanye West, she quickly found a desire to start making music. Soon after, Shake began recording in a friend’s studio up until 2016, when the intensely vulnerable song “Proud” caught the ear of the legendary G.O.O.D. Music camp.

Shake signed to the label later that year, transitioning from manning kids’ bouncy castles in New Jersey to working with the likes of G.O.O.D. Music labelmates Kanye West and Pusha T, among others. Come 2018, she released the deeply personal EP, Glitter — a six-track culmination of diverse sounds and genres meant to chronicle the realities of love, depression, substance, and pain. Maintaining the same creativity that once fueled her high school poetry, she began to turn heads in the music world, becoming one of the year’s most talked-about names with her features on several other G.O.O.D. Music releases, namely the soul-stricken outro on Kanye West’s “Ghost Town” and her haunting vocals on Pusha T’s “Santeria.”

Today, in the wake of the release of Modus Vivendi, Shake is focused on bringing her reflective style to the spotlight with boundary-pushing creativity and pure emotional honesty as her compass. Detailing her creative process, “I just really go with how I feel in the moment and then that’s where the writing comes from. It’s like an ongoing disperse of words when I feel something.”

In a world obsessed with consumption, Shake is a much-needed breath of fresh air, more than ready to make her impact felt through music. In her own words, “I want it to make a change in the world. The agenda is bigger than just music.”

What the Press is Saying About Saygrace:

“Impeccable…”Here’s to the 22-year-old finally getting the

recognition she deserves””- Idolator

“spotlights the rising star’s rich, bluesy vocals”- Consequence of Sound Bouncing between soulful vocals and spurts of rapping, SAYGRACE gets everything off her chest…“…the songstress changed her moniker and gained a new sense of self.” – Earmilk Listen to SAYGRACE’s Interview with NPR’s “All Things Considered”

About SAYGRACE and “Boys Ain’t Shit” The video for ‘Boys Ain’t Shit’ has already enjoyed over 6 million views, and the single has been

trending on TikTok with over 200k video creations. Watch SAYGRACE’s Genius Verified interview HERE.

“Boys Ain’t Shit” finds SAYGRACE flipping the script on a man who

pushed her to the breaking point — but instead of vectoring in on the problems in their situationship, SAYGRACE turned the track into an anthem for all women who feel like swiping, doing emotional labor, and the interchangeable nature of modern dating is dehumanizing.

SAYGRACE thinks of her lyrics as a message to the younger version of herself, and a message to any woman who needs to hear it; that in a world that’s always trying to shrink you, you can be as big as you want. “As women we’re told all your value is placed on how fuckable you are, but I refuse to accept that as reality,” she says. “What I realized as I got older is that nothing is more powerful than divine feminine energy and when women come together and support each other the possibilities are infinite.” SAYGRACE is all about finding her place and her power as a young woman despite sometimes still feeling like a lost kid in this big world.

Her EP, The Defining Moments of SayGrace: Girlhood, Fuckboys & Situationships, is her manifesto.

Additionally, “hello i am” paves the way for her forthcoming debut EP due later this year.

Let’s make this clear. somegirlnamedanna is not a brand. It is not an image. It is not an alter ego. Instead, it is the story of Anna, “a girl with a name like all of us are.”  Born and raised in a remote area of Minnesota, her imagination flourished without television or social media. An antique grand piano in the living room called to her as she repeated melodies and jingles from the radio by ear as a young child. While painting in the kitchen, mom played classics by Tracy Chapman, Joni Mitchell, and Tori Amos fueling her daughter’s love for music and the arts, in general. At the same time, she developed a knack for poetry and writing short stories at school, combining the two in songwriting eventually. Balancing college and bartending four nights a week, she spent countless hours in the studio writing and recording demos as well as developing her voice. After one listen to these early demos, LAVA Founder Jason Flom personally signed her in 2019. That brings us to her debut single “hello i am” available everywhere.

Gracie Davies – Addicted To Blue

GRACE DAVIES ANNOUNCES ‘FRIENDS WITH THE TRAGIC’ EP & SHARES ‘ADDICTED TO BLUE’ 

‘The lyrics are testament to a remarkable talent…add a melody of heart-tugging beauty and the result is a song that is extraordinarily beautiful’ – The Sunday Times

‘Expect big things for Grace this year’ – Daily Star

‘Raw, searching debut single’ – Music Week

‘Definitely worth the wait. Invisible shows off the 22 year old’s incredible songwriting chops’ – Spindle Magazine

‘A wonderful debut’ – Official Charts LISTEN TO/ SHARE ‘ADDICTED TO BLUE’ HERE

WATCH ‘ADDICTED TO BLUE’ VISUALIZER HERE:

Today, Grace Davies announces the release of her forthcoming ‘Friends With The Tragic’ EP.  A powerful and emotive collection of songwriting mastery, the four-track EP will include the  previously released and critically acclaimed single ‘Invisible’ alongside new banger ‘Addicted To Blue’ released through The Orchard/Sony Music.

The release of ‘Invisible’ at the beginning of 2020 marked the start of a new era in Grace’s career and cemented her reputation as a songwriter, racking up over 250K streams, landing places on influential tastemaker playlists and championed by a wealth of tastemakers including Sunday Times Culture who described her as ‘a remarkable talent’.

Smooth vocals infused with hypnotic melodies and cool Scandi pop vibes, ‘Addicted To Blue’ was recorded and produced in Sweden with producer Elias Kapari and is another beautiful track from this extraordinary talent.

Having independently released her debut EP at the age of 18, Grace Davies garnered the support of tastemakers including BBC 6 Music, became a staple fixture on BBC Radio Lancashire, as well as picking up coveted national ‘BBC Introducing’ artist support. The 23-year-old composer, pianist and singer is a songwriter who artfully documents the human condition, able to make the personal universal. With a poet’s ease, her honest lyrics come alive through her soulful, unique vocals and haunting melodies; traits that saw her ascend to the final of X Factor 2017. In a first for the programme, Grace shook up the format and confidently showcased her own songs at every stage, generating millions of streams and a top 2 iTunes chart position.

A true artist, Grace oversees every element of her music. Following extensive time in the studio writing for other artists as well as herself Grace’s unmistakable voice and fearless songwriting seems set to secure her future. Her ‘Friends With The Tragic’ EP will be released this summer.

Grace says: ““I feel like there’s something for everyone on this EP, and I was truly able to document a wide variety of happenings in my “tragique” life, as I like to call it. I’m so proud of these songs. Addicted To Blue is the bop I never realised I had. It lived as a piano ballad for over a year and I never knew which direction to take it in. I went out to Sweden to produce it with Elias Kapari and we had such a fun time with it because it was such a blank canvas, so we tried everything just for fun! I’ve always been inspired by the energy of 80’s pop production so I really wanted to bring some elements of 80’s to this track. It makes me dance around my kitchen no matter what mood I’m in. The song talks about the appreciation of a long distance relationship. My boyfriend at the time lived 3 hours away, which is far enough not to see each other often, so I wanted to touch on how amazing it is that someone can give you a reason to be sad when they leave – if that makes sense. The lyrics are so contradictory throughout – like, I’m happy when we’re together, but I also like not having you there all the time, getting on my tits! A happy medium.” 

ADDICTED TO BLUE  IS AVAILABLE TO DOWNLOAD / STREAM NOW

WATCH HERE

HEARTBREAK WEATHER, HORAN’S NEW ALBUM, IS OUT NOW

Boss Baby Brody – the four-year-old boy who went viral when his mom posted a clip of him dancing to “The Nutcracker” – takes on Niall Horan’s “No Judgement” in a new video, which premiered today. View HERE Brody, also known as “Tiny Dancer” and “Baby Fosse,” was named “Dancer of the Week” by The Radio City Rockettes and has earned praise from “Good Morning America,” and numerous other media outlets.

The joyful clip – directed by Kanya McMahon, who also helmed Horan’s “Heartbreak Weather” video – depicts an average day at the Schaffer family household. When Boss Baby Brody and his sister Dylan grow bored watching TV, they venture into their parents’ walk-in closet, where they find costumes and dance with abandon to Horan’s “No Judgement.” Soon mom Danielle and dad Bobby join in the fun. When brothers Jackson and Roman arrive home, it becomes a full-on family dance party.

The lyrics to “No Judgement” read like a family anthem to the Schaffer’s, who are longtime fans of Horan, and they felt inspired to offer up their take on the track. When you’re with me, no judgement You can get that from anyone else You don’t have to prove nothin’ You can just be yourself The original video for “No Judgement” celebrates the unconditional love between an elderly couple, with Horan serving as narrator. MTV News hailed it as “a quirky, charming, kinda gross love story.” View HERE.

Heartbreak Weather came in at No. 1 on the NPR “All Songs Considered” list of the week’s top 10 new albums. Newsweek said, “‘Nice to Meet Ya’ and ‘No Judgement’ are suave works of seduction…[while] ‘Put a Little Love on Me’ is a tender, piano-focused ballad.” Stereogum observed, “The Forecast Is Improving For Niall Horan.” American Songwriter noted, “Horan guns right for the eye of heartbreak’s storm…He feels the sting quite viscerally, yet instead of writhing around in his misery, he fashions his acoustic guitar in new smoldering settings or opts to dance it out into the wee hours of the morning.”
