HAUSKEY – Heartache & LSD: Act II

Following the release of Emilee: Act I earlier this summer, Australian artist, producer, and one-to-watch Hauskey reveals the second act of his three-part mixtape project entitled Heartache & LSD: Act II, out via slowplay/Republic Records on August 12th—listen HERE. Exploring the highs and lows of Hauskey’s mental health journey over the past two years, the psychedelic Act II finds him attempting to break free from his depression (“Emilee”) and confronting his mental health and sense of self.

Hauskey says, “In Act II, Heartache & LSD, the struggle begins. I start to break away from Emilee and wrestle my sense of self and mental health back. I deal with that all important first LSD trip in the title track, my struggles with body image and self-love in ‘Love Me’, my innate habit to doubt myself in ‘Second Guess’, and reflecting on a childhood that wasn’t so drowned in anxiety in ‘Head In The Clouds’.”

All songs in the mixtape series were written, produced, performed, and mixed by Hauskey. Praising Act INotion described the second and third acts as “a trippy re-examination of self and the well-earned resolution in which he now resides.”

He previously shared the meaning behind Emilee, saying, “I really wanted to name my depression and make it a character in the story. I landed on singing names ending with ‘e’ by chance, googled a few ideas and found Emilee means ‘rival, laborious’ and figured that fit pretty damn well. With my nemesis named, the song may as well have written itself.”

Hauskey first debuted in 2020 with his breakout hit “Slow.” The sunshine bop was followed by a slew of fan favorite singles, like “Somewhere” and “Silver Lining,” and his critically acclaimed debut EP, Slow. In 2021, Hauskey followed up this early success with “Go Wrong,” “Cream Shirt,” and his first collaboration, “One Minute” featuring Hope Tala, along with sold out headline shows across Australia. Along the way, he confirmed himself as an artist to watch—receiving international support from triple j and BBC Radio 1, as well as praise from press around the globe, including NPRBillboard, MTV NewsSPINNMEClashThe Line Of Best FitNotionDIYDorkCoup De MainOnes To Watch, and many more. Not to mention, during a very special live performance at the 2021 APRA Music Awards, Hauskey teamed up with Sycco and Stevan for a cover of Tame Impala’s “Lost In Yesterday,” bringing Kevin Parker and his family to tears—watch the performance HERE.

Stay tuned for Act III to come from Hauskey this fall.

ABOUT HAUSKEY
2020 and 2021 proved to be landmark years for Australian artist and producer Hauskey. He introduced himself to the world with his breakout single “Slow,” released his debut EP of the same name, sold out dates across Sydney and Melbourne, and dropped fan favorite singles “Go Wrong,” “Cream Shirt,” and more, tallying millions of streams along the way. He also incited widespread critical applause from NMEClashThe Line of Best FitNotionDIY MagazineDORK MagazineBillboardCoup De Main, and Ones To Watch, to name a few. Last year, Hauskey graced the stage of the APRA Music Awards for a seismic rendition of Tame Impala’s “Lost In Yesterday” with Sycco and Stevan, which left frontman Kevin Parker and his family in tears of joy. However, Hauskey only parlayed this momentum into his most ambitious creative output to date, the three-act mixtape Emilee, Act 1, Act 2, and Act 3. The ebb and flow of the first installment, Act 1, sets the stage for an honest, yet hard-hitting and heartfelt exploration of mental health struggles in one of the darkest periods of Hauskey’s life. He explains, “The project follows my mental health journey from low to high—from being suicidal to loving life again. There’s a song for every stage; from utter depression, to getting help, to dealing with my self-worth and body image, to seeing how things might be brighter.”

FLO – Cardboard Box

London-based girl group FLO releases the acoustic video for their buzzing single “Cardboard Box.” 

Watch the acoustic video for “Cardboard Box” HERE and the official video HERE. In the video, they showcase their love for honeyed harmonies and rich emotion, fusing the classic old school R&B they still obsess over.

When British girl group FLO broke onto the music scene with “Cardboard Box,” their fearless debut single and official video that has captured the essence of a group at the helm of their music and visual identity, the world took note. Receiving love from global superstars including Missy Elliot, SZA, Victoria Monet and JoJo, with one tweet stating “the uk girl groups are coming hard,” featuring a clip of “Cardboard Box,” has led to over 3 million views.

Already receiving critical praise from, i-D, NME, Complex, and more, “Cardboard Box” is a staggering introduction to the world of FLO. The lyrics are harmonized over an immaculate MNEK production that fuses early ‘00s R&B, complete with irreplaceable-esque guitar figures and dancehall flavors. With an ethos of self-love, female empowerment and supporting women in music, FLO have already built a loyal fanbase on TikTok (over 150k followers and  4.1m likes) having been called “the future of R&B” (Complex) for their stripped back acapella sessions, giving new life to their favorite tunes with unbreakable chemistry.

FLO’s origin story speaks to their name—it flowed. Stella spent the first few years of her life in Mozambique before moving to the UK aged five, and met Renée at school in London, where they bonded over their joint love of singing and were familiar with Jorja via social media. Jorja was born in Germany and grew up in Hertfordshire and was on her own musical journey, but it was a chance meeting at an audition where they all locked eyes: “I saw the girls and we screamed across the room. I knew from that moment we were about to start something big,” says Jorja.

For the past two years FLO have honed everything from their sound to their look (“Us but elevated,” as Stella succinctly puts it), working with the likes of LOXE (Grammy-nominated, NAO), KABBA, Aston Rudi (Mahalia), newcomer Jamal Woon, and KAYTRANADA collaborator Lauren Faith. The sisterly bond within FLO runs deep, having all been raised by powerful single mothers and understanding the gravity, hustle and tenacity of picking this career path. It is clear that FLO’s natural bond is crystalline, and the life situations they are beginning to navigate have only brought them closer and stronger together. Join the story NOW of our next big homegrown girl group.

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.

About BabyJake

BabyJake promises he’s “bringing back rock ‘n’ roll.” However, this isn’t your parents’ rock ‘n’ roll. It’s got all of the style, swagger, and spirit of the seventies, but it’s lit up by a fresh fire. The Florida-born and Los Angeles-based singer, songwriter, and producer exudes enough star power to pull off a cowboy hat and flare jeans, but he’s also a byproduct of the times with a natural predilection for viral impact. In 2019, he introduced himself with the gold-selling “Cigarettes on Patios,” crashing viral charts and piling up 100 million-plus streams. During 2020, the artist remained prolific with his debut EP, Don’t give me problems, give me wine. In its wake, Flaunt predicted, BabyJake is on his way to superstardom,” while he earned acclaim from Billboard, Wonderland, V Magazine, Notion, TMRW Magazine, American Songwriter, The Line of Best Fit, Ones to Watch, This Song is Sick, and Lyrical Lemonade, to name a few.  Along the way, he collaborated with everyone from 24kgoldn to Dillon Francis and Louis The Child.

Amelia Moore – vinegar

Amelia Moore gives a stunning live performance of her new single, “vinegar,” in this video, which received a YouTube Premiere earlier today. The 21-year-old Georgia native is backed by a string quartet in the intricate production.

Praising “vinegar” for having “the most powerful chorus of 2022, thus far,” PAPER observed, “The height of the song pulls back almost everything, like a stomach dropping after receiving that text from an ex.” Check out Moore’s Q&A with PAPER HERE. PLNKWIFI.com said, “If you enjoyed devouring Amelia Moore’s debut single ‘sweet and sour,’ get ready for seconds!” U.K. magazines Notion and The Line of Best Fit immediately added “vinegar” to their playlists. Combined, “vinegar” and “sweet and sour” have already amassed nearly five million global streams.

Moore will support Capitol Records label mate FLETCHER on her sold-out North American tour, starting on February 28 at The Fillmore in San Francisco, CA. The run includes two-night-stands at the Fonda Theatre in Los Angeles (March 2 & 3) and Webster Hall in New York City (March 22 & 23). See below for itinerary.

In a whirlwind journey she describes as “homeschool to Hollywood,” Moore got her start singing in the church choir as a child, followed her dreams to Los Angeles at age 18, and soon attracted a massive following on the strength of her bold, vulnerable songwriting. Ones To Watch said, “the rising star demonstrates a penchant for infectious experimentation, pulling from the worlds of ominous pop, alluring R&B, and mesmerizing electronic textures” and added Moore to their “25 Artists to Watch in 2022” list.

NESSA BARRETT — “i hope ur miserable until ur dead”

DEBUT PRETTY POISON EP ARRIVES ON SEPTEMBER 10

DELIVERS INTERNET-BREAKING SURPRISE PERFORMANCE AT LOLLAPALOOZA

Ready to make a major mark after gathering millions of streams and receiving widespread critical acclaim, rising singer-songwriter Nessa Barrett uncovers a new single and music video entitled “i hope ur miserable until ur dead” today. Listen to “i hope ur miserable until ur dead” HERE and watch the music video HERE.

Nessa delivers a Gen-Z grunge bop underlined by caustic guitars and a hypnotically spectral hook. Her voice teems with raw emotion as she lets everyone know exactly how she feels! In the accompanying video directed by the incomparable Hannah Lux Davis [Ariana Grande, Halsey], Nessa emerges from a television set Poltergeist­-style in order to haunt a deserving ex with her undeniable presence (and totally stealable nineties prom goth looks).

Regarding the song, she said, “‘i hope ur miserable until ur dead’ is the anger you hold inside when people betray you—when people hurt you so bad and you unapologetically hope they get what they deserve.”

Most importantly, the song heralds the arrival of her debut pretty poison EP out September 10 on Warner Records. Pre-order pretty poison HERE. Illuminating the scope of her signature style, she leans into a lullaby melody on the darkly catchy “grave,” while “i wanna die” feels tailor-made for the closing credits of a classic nineties slasher flick. Her jazzy intonation adds raw emotion to “scare myself” as she admits, “Sometimes I even scare myself.” Over wobbling distortion on the title track “pretty poison,” she urges, “Say my name, say my name like you know it’s holy.”

Check out the full tracklisting below.

Nessa broke the internet last weekend when she joined jxdn for a surprise duet of “la di die” on the Main Stage at Lollapalooza. It immediately trended across social media, generating millions of impressions. Meanwhile, she continues to attract critical acclaim. Of her latest release “counting crimes,” Clash Music wrote, “The single itself showcases Barrett’s vocal power alongside a backdrop of guitar and piano overlaid with glitchy production.” In addition to plugs from the likes of UPSET Magazine and more, The Line of Best Fit hailed her as “On The Rise,” going on to rave, “She is the architect of her own, grunge-indebted netherworld, leaning into the pop-punk revival close enough to brush shoulders with it, and yet retaining an extraordinary sense of self that belies her eighteen years.” 

Earlier this year, Nessa linked up with jxdn on “I’m Dead” as part of the Official Soundtrack for the new scripted podcast Prom In Hell, the four part horror-musical-comedy series which debuted as the #1 Apple Music Podcast in April. “I’m Dead” notably marks the second collaboration by Nessa and jxdn following their breakout hit “la di die,” produced by the legendary Travis Barker. The latter has already amassed over 200 million streams, cracked the Top 15 at alternative radio and reached #27 at top 40 radio. The duo made their late-night television debut performance with “la di die” on Jimmy Kimmel Live! and also performed on The Ellen Degeneres Show. The song has received widespread acclaim from MTV, Elite Daily, Buzzfeed Radio.com and Nylon declared, “As the last line of ‘la di die’ says: She’s gonna be a superstar.”

Flora Cash shares new single – Chronically Beautiful

RIAA platinum-certified indie-pop duo Flora Cash has today unveiled a tender and reflective new single. “Chronically Beautiful” is available now via the Swedish/American band’s own Flower Money Records at all DSPs and streaming services.

“’Chronically Beautiful’ was sparked when we were having a conversation about what it means to be beautiful,” says Flora Cash, “especially when looked at through the lens of real love. It’s not an acute, momentary perception; it’s the feeling that the person you love; the person that you waited your whole life for has a beauty that transcends any given moment and isn’t dependent on what they happen to be wearing or how their face looks that day or week or month; they’re chronically beautiful.”

Listen to “Chronically Beautiful”

“Chronically Beautiful” marks the latest new music from Flora Cash following the arrival earlier this year of the poignant new single, “Soul Mate,” available now for streaming and download. Now boasting more than 2.5M worldwide streams thus far, the track is joined by an equally powerful official music video streaming now here.

Listen To “Soul Mate”

Watch “Soul Mate”

Flora Cash was born in 2012 when Minneapolis-native Cole Randall uploaded his music to Soundcloud and caught the attention of Sweden-based Shpresa Lleshaj. The pair soon began playing music together, forming a relationship that would eventually blossom into marriage. A series of independent releases were followed by an acclaimed seven-song mini-LP, Can Summer Love Last Forever?, in March 2016. Flora Cash’s full-length debut album, Nothing Lasts Forever (And It’s Fine), arrived the following year, highlighted by the global smash single, “You’re Somebody Else.” First released in 2017, the RIAA platinum-certified single has proven a true viral phenomenon, currently boasting over 250M worldwide streams while ranking as one of Shazam’s Most Shazamed Alternative Songs in both 2019 and 2020. Hailed by Forbes as “arguably the most intriguing song on the radio this past year,” “You’re Somebody Else” was equally popular at multi-format outlets nationwide, reaching #1 at Alternative and Triple-A while also ascending to the top 5 on Billboard’s “Hot Rock Songs” chart. The track – which has also inspired countless TikTok videos in recent months – is joined by an official lyric video, now with over 133M views via YouTube alone.

As creative and engaging onstage as they are in the studio, Flora Cash lit up stages around the world with a wide range of international live dates, including tours alongside Sir Sly, Joywave, lovelytheband, Judah & the Lion, and AJR as well as festival appearances at Life is Beautiful, Bumbershoot, Austin City Limits Music Festival, Hangout Music Fest, Firefly Music Festival, and the KROQ Weenie Roast & Luau, to name but a few. The duo is currently slated to perform at Hamburg, Germany’s MS Dockville 2021, set for Friday, August 13th; additional dates will be announced soon. For updates, please visit here.

In 2020, Flora Cash released their much-anticipated sophomore album, Baby, It’s Okay, highlighted by the hit singles, “Missing Home” and “They Own This Town” and praised by Atwood Magazine for its “stunning display of stripped back, emotive songwriting, minimal introductions and impressive vocal lines are laced over lush, electro-pop instrumentals as delicate as they are organic, all delving into relational themes…a stunning second album.”

“Well-thought-out, congruent, and brilliantly detailed, Flora Cash explores themes such as post-breakup blues and coming to terms with oneself, all coated in melancholic and bittersweet vibes.” – ATWOOD MAGAZINE

“A sound that’s equal parts earthy and ethereal” – SUBSTREAM

“Bitingly bittersweet (Flora Cash’s) crystalline guitar and spine-tingling melodies give voice to that feeling of emptiness that’s recently become all-too-familiar.” – THE LINE OF BEST FIT

“Alongside artists like Billie Eilish, Maggie Rogers, and Francis and the Lights, Flora Cash is on the front lines of modern musicians redefining alt-pop by injecting their music with heartfelt conviction.” – EARMILK

Fast-rising London based artist and multi-instrumentalist Oscar Lang has released the video for his latest single, 21st Century Hobby, off his debut album Chew The Sceneryout August 13 on Dirty Hit. The video sees Lang surrounded by a mirage of the elements and advertisements that inundate you on social media and the toxic effects it creates. 21st Century Hobby is currently featured on a variety of top playlists including Spotify’s All New Indie, The Indie List, and Today’s Indie Rock as well as Apple Music’s New Music Daily and New In Alternative.

21st Century Hobby is a tune based on the idea of society’s obsession with sharing your life online and comparing yourself to other people,” Lang shares. “There was one point where I was spending 13 hours a week on social media, which equated to about a month every year. That was a really dark time for me – I always thought that it would never affect me, but it took some time to realize that it was subconsciously affecting my mental health.”

21st Century Hobby joins Stuck, which was written to capture the emotions and complicated feelings that are often attached to the embarrassing situations we replay in our minds, and Are You Happy?, written about a friend having a really hard timein building on the cohesive blueprint of Lang’s debut album. Chew The Scenery is his most ambitious release to date, which spans topics such as growing pains, love, romance, friendships and the pitfalls of social media on our collective mental health.

All three singles demonstrate Lang’s versatility and growth as a songwriter, highlighting Chew The Scenery’s scuzzy indie rock dynamics, psychedelic flourishes, and orchestral grandiosity. “Over the past two years the sound of my music has changed a lot, from bedroom pop to rock” Lang explains. “We recorded the album over a month up in Liverpool. It was a nice break away from the tedious lockdown in the UK as I got to spend a month away with my mates doing what I love. I think you can hear that built-up boredom being released on the record.

Chew The Scenery furthers Lang’s rise following a momentous 2020 for Lang which yielded the release of three EPs, Antidote to Being BoredHand Over Your Head and Overthunk. Lang’s Apple Juice has been featured in EA Sports game FIFA 2021 while She Likes Another Boy has found an audience on TikTok – the platform where coffee, the track Lang produced for beabadoobee, has found viral legs in Powfu’s death bed (coffee for your head), which has collected over 998 million streams on Spotify alone. Along the way, Lang has also gathered praise from SPINOnes To Watch, All Things Go, BBC Radio 1’s Jack Saunders, Annie Mac, and Huw Stephens, The FADERThe Line Of Best Fit, NME, CLASH, The Guardian, The Sunday Times and others.
