Quote Club: The Eagle Rock Gospel Singers

“Haunted is the second track we recorded for this Album, and unlike the other tracks, the instrumentation was recorded in just one live take.  The song also came together in the writing process very quickly too.  The song tries to explore the dark angst we feel when earthly companionship is either absent or fails to…

Quote Club: Desert Moons

“This track was originally an idea of Simon’s conceived in our home studio. We sent it back and forth to each other over a period of a week, until it became what you hear today. We had a lot of fun with this song. We tend to always produce our favourite works when we’re evenly…

Quote Club: Fabian Secon

“5ive and I met online around January 2016”, Fabian explains. “Having a mutual appreciation for each other’s talent, we started working instantly. The vibe was very natural, and we spent a few months experimenting. Our aim for Until We Meet Again was to fuse alternative R&B, pop rock and trap elements to create a fresh, progressive body of…

Fire debut alert! I love being introduced to an artist with seemingly boundless potential. Madeleine Rosenthal’s indie tinged electronic pop has a very high ceiling; beautiful melodies and a gorgeous vocal tone characterises her debut single ‘No One’s Gonna Save You’. “No One’s Gonna Save You is a song about not relying on others to…

On The Record: Drinker

This is your second single now, how do you feel the response has been so far? Aaron: Great, actually. This music is something completely new for both of us and I really didn’t know what to expect. It’s been great to see Spotify get behind it with placements on New Indie Mix, and New Music…

Launchpad: Faunaphor

All my favourite little details of electro-pop are present in Faunaphor’s debut single ‘In A Library, In The Summer.’ The expansive sizzling synths, the steady restrained beat and the Spandau Ballet esque melodies. “‘in a library, in the summer (when I read I fall asleep)’ is a song about language and the moments when it…

Launchpad: Gallo

Gallo’s debut single ‘Sugar Daddy’ is a vibrant pop bop with effervescent vocals. “With “Sugar Daddy” I wanted to write a sing along.  Lyrically it’s super playful and very tongue in cheek. Its narrative has been dressed up in sinfully sweet lyrics and addictive melodies that I hope will have you singing it on repeat….

Toronto is quickly becoming a creative hub, especially for emerging hip-hop and R&B artists. Patricia Stone is continuing that trend with her debut single ‘Runner’. Smooth vocals ride on a swing of swirling synths and sharp snares, kicking through to a memorable chorus. The vocal is restrained enough that the melodies don’t feel forced, with…
