This Weekend’s Tunes
“Pretty” by Estella Dawn
About the song: “This song has nothing to do with aesthetics, being attractive, is, in my opinion, the least interesting thing about a person BUT feeling confident, comfortable, and empowered in your body is important, to me that is true beauty.
It would be nice to feel great about yourself every day but life can, at times, have a tendency to make you feel small and inadequate. It’s especially easy now with the addition of social media, comparing your body and life to the bodies and lives of “perfect” people online can be soul-crushing. It can leave you feeling like all that you are isn’t enough.
That’s when you need someone to lift you up. You need kind words when you’re unable to speak them to yourself, you need reassurance when you’re feeling discouraged. You need a reminder that you’re a badass and that you should never shrink to make others comfortable because you’re not “too much” you’re just enough.” — Estella Dawn
“Where Did The Time Go” by Jenny Kern
About the song: ““Where Did The Time Go” is a relentlessly honest song about a constant struggle with anxiety. “I started writing this song in the midst of the pandemic while having an existential crisis of not knowing what my purpose was or why I was existing.” It strikes the listener with a kind of honest confusion. In a gentle tone, Jenny throws questions into the universe (“Where did the good go?/Where did it go?”) and seems to give up before they’re answered (“Cause I don’t know, I don’t know where to go anymore,” and later, “Maybe there’s nothing left/Maybe there’s nothing left”).” — Jenny Kern
“In Your Love” by Perry Foster x Romero x Odetta Hartman
About the song: “I was lucky to work with two amazing musicians, Romero and Odetta Hartman, to create this blend of our styles – somewhere between folk, flamenco, and rock. ” — Perry Foster
“A Saving Grace” by Sonny Casey
About the song: “‘A Saving Grace’ is about the dangerous delusion of an abusive relationship. Originally titling it ‘It’s Not Too Late’, I wrote it hoping it would save a breaking relationship from falling apart. I thought the message was ‘It’s not too late. Please don’t give up on us yet.’
Once I came back into my power and discovered that I was subconsciously writing about the dream/nightmare dynamic that is a toxic relationship, I changed the name to ‘A Saving Grace’. Because a saving grace was no longer to save the relationship. A saving grace was to get the hell out of there and save myself. Now the message is; if you’re in something that makes you feel bad most of the time, it’s probably because it is bad. You can’t make someone happy if they’re not happy with themselves. Happy, healthy love exists and you deserve it. Get out of there. It’s not too late.” — Sonny Casey
“the truth is…” by M I R
About the song: “”the truth is…” is a pop love song that is vulnerable and relatable. It was born in my bedroom two years ago at 2 am with just me and a guitar. I wrote it about what it is to experience real love for the first time. I have been singing on features and background vocals for other artists up until now.” — M I R

“Time Moves Slow” by Sorry It’s Over
About the song: “Another heartbreaks and love lost. Time moves slowly even when you don’t want it to. Short little diddy with a catchy melody in the vein of pop-rock.” — Sorry It’s Over
“Summertime High” by Alex Fraser
About the song: “Summertime High is a feel-good track that expresses a feeling of positivity and joy; a song about falling in love on the west coast.” — Alex Fraser
“All I Want Is You” by Ian Abel
About the song: ““All I Want Is You” is a chaotic, unexpected mashup of genres and references: Abel’s sultry, soulful vocals are layered over a funk bassline, 80s synthesizers, distorted rock guitars, and background vocals inspired by Steely Dan and David Bowie… all folded into a twistingly dark synth-pop confection.”
“I wanted to write something you could listen to over and over and keep discovering new sounds, layers, and meanings,” says Ian Abel. “More than that, though, I wanted to capture the feeling of out-of-control, delusional obsession. I really relate to that feeling [chuckle].”
“I Fuck Flowers” by Madégras
About the song: “This is a song about perspectives and their misleading interpretations.” — Madégras
