“For the Kill” by CHNNLL
About the song: “I got the idea for this song while walking the streets of Chicago – the sights, sounds and city smells gave me flashbacks to a walkabout I took during an African safari. Stepping out of the safari truck I felt vulnerable and unwelcomed; city streets can make you feel the same. Both have a way of bringing out the animal inside. Wake me up…’for the kill.'” – CHNNLL
“Barcelona Summer” by julia thomsen x TRE
About the song: Julia Thomsen is as eager as ever to share her lovely music with the world, and the world has embraced her with open arms, with over one million streams already under her belt! Hikes in the woods, gorgeous sights, and the incredible sensation of being completely at one with mother nature inspire her work. Also, Tre, who is collaborating with Julia for the first time, adds his golden touch to the song, creating a unique ambiance and adding to Julia’s already extensive discography.
With peaceful bird noises lighting the way to utopia, ‘Barcelona Summer’ is the antidote to modern pandemonium! The soothing piano, guitar tones, and themes that arise from the composition cause goosebumps to rise on the back of the neck, and the calming aura of the strings hold the senses. It is stunning in its entirety and serves as a metaphor for our magnificent world.
