Seattle based singer-songwriter Nora Rothman recently announced the upcoming debut of a new EP titled Nothing New out July 12th via Unspeakable Records. We’re proud to be premiering the final song ahead of the full project release in “dear / david.” Rothman’s latest single is the project’s most poignant and jarring single yet, a personal commentary on the #METOO and #TIMESUP movement that tells the story of her own experiences in LA working in the entertainment industry. Produced by Kate Ellwanger (aka DOT), Rothman calls “dear / david” “the feminist heartbeat to this femme-powered EP.” “It was in the middle of Christine Blasey Ford’s testimony, and my rage was right at the surface,” says Rothman, “I decided to perform the exercise myself in the form of these lyrics: writing to an actor named David and a musician named Josh, two of a number of men from my past who need to hear these words.” Stream the stirring new single below:

Today, we have the premiere of the visual for her new single “Lecture Me”, out now. Speaking to the motivation behind Lecture Me, Seersha shares:The catalyst for this song came out of a painful situation where I felt pressured to change by someone who was close to me at the time. I’ve always been a bit of a rebel and at its core, that’s what this song is about. I am not the kind of person who responds well to being lectured… then again, who really is?

Sensu – Issues

Jun 10 2019

Out now on Quartz Records, Sensu‘s new single “Issues” ft. lyricist and rapper Ryck Jane is out now. This is the third single from her forthcoming debut album, Embrace, which is set to drop in September. Inspired by Asian music and instruments, “Issues” is “related to those individuals who deal with depression and how they cope with it,” says Sensu. Sensu’s unmistakable trademark sound may well be the product of her uncommon production method. After building a melodic progression from a simple chord and fleshing out the high end of each arrangement, she then incorporates vocal samples and bass lines. Only when the rest of these pieces are in place, does she underscore them with a drum pattern. Instead of programming each one, she plays it on a drum pad to make sure the heartbeat of the track exudes as much of a human element as possible. Check it out below:

Indie-pop group The Millennial Club presents their debut She’s So Insane EP, a collection of six stunning tracks that includes two brand new offereings in “MI” and the title track, “She’s So Insane”. There’s a relaxed West coast vibe to this music that is heightened emotional love-centered lyricism. “The ‘She’s So Insane’ EP is an extremely honest collection of songs, and our journey as musicians has been captured in these tracks. It’s a really big deal for us because it’s the first complete set of work we’ve put out; because of that, it really feels like now, more than ever, people have a holistic view of us. I guess in a way, that means they really can (truly) see if they like our music, or if they simply like just one of our songs.” – The Millennial Club
