“Laneway Girl” by Pachinko
About the song: “A smooth and chill R&B track with both a dynamic of emotive yet velvety vocals. The song is pretty much an “observation” of a girl you’d fall for at a music festival.” — Pachinko
“Nightfall” by Sophia Jenna
About the song: “I wrote Nightfall when I was staying in Austin rehearsing for a tour. It was a funny time because I hardly knew the person I was staying with, and suddenly I was in his life, sharing his house, using his bicycle, sleeping in his bed. Although we had already toured together in Germany, I realized how little we really knew each other and how I admired him for taking this leap of faith.
Touring together is a pretty terrifying thing: you see each other at your worst, being nervous before shows, spending all day together in confined spaces (cars, greenrooms), sleeping badly on friend’s floors and couches, and then having to pour your heart out in front of each other on the stage every night.
You are incredibly vulnerable. I think with this song I was trying to tell the guy I was touring with that he would be safe with me, or perhaps I was trying to tell myself I was safe with him. ” — Sophie Janna
“Somebody Else” by Limón Limón
