“Reciprocals – Cinematic Version” by The Forever Now
About the song: “Reciprocals” is about coming to terms with the fact that your own flaws and insecurities are the cause of the end of a relationship, and that staying together is only damaging both parties further. Now, a year after the song’s original release, The Forever Now offers an alternate version, substituting their synthesizers and drum machines for a felt piano and string ensemble.
Deviating from the original indie synth-pop track, the re-imagined “cinematic version” has a patient, emotive, and sparse character that demonstrates the development of The Forever Now as artists and maturation of their sound.” — The Forever Now

“Hands of Mine – In the Dark Part 1” by Michael Day
About the single: The 3-track Single is a concoction of delicate melodies, moody guitar lines, ambient banjo parts, adroit lyrics, and vocal harmonies. While the first two pieces are moody and dark in nature, the third track, being true to hopefulness, is bright, upbeat, and raw in sound. While falling into the Alternate Folk genre, In the Dark is influenced by other genres such as Indie Rock, Roots, and in some sections even Classical and Hip-Hop.
Michael Day draws creative inspiration from His days as a classical guitarist and ‘classical music nerd’ analysing the structures of symphonies and concertos. Within the classical genre of music, Motifs have meaning and are rearranged and repeated throughout the entire work.
“Water and Wind” by Perry Foster x Romero
About the song: “Romero and I blended our distinct folk styles to create something new. Musically inspired by klezmer, flamenco, and rock and roll. Lyrically inspired by Omar Khayyam.” — Perry Foster
“Just Like Me” by Nick Johnson
About the song: “My latest song “Just Like Me” is a sexy, dark, modern rock song reminiscent of the 90’s era. Lyrically it’s a commentary on our “Just Like Me” culture and the way we meet and build relationships in the 21st century! At the end of the day, it’s a sexy, hard rock song with a really cool video! ” — Nick Johnson
“Four” by Brendan Eder Ensemble x Edward Blankman
About the song: “The final single from Cape Cod Cottage is the most adventurous, dynamic, and an elaborate piece on the LP. Eder’s “chamber hop” aesthetic and the musicians’ virtuosity are on full display. Playful and inventive, accessible and modern. The piece invites the listener on a journey culminating in a colorful arrangement accented by an exciting statement from drummer Christian Euman (Jacob Collier). ” — Brendan Eder Ensemble
“Birthday” by Ri and Ry x Enrose
About the song: Ri and Ry is a disco-funk-loving duo based in Phoenix, AZ. As full-time musicians, the married couple plays energetic, upbeat tunes at local restaurants and resorts. They are also available for private events and weddings, both locally and out of state! Their disco-funk-inspired original music is written, recorded, produced from the bedroom of their apartment.
“Digital Conversation” by Ci Gofod x Mojo JNR
About the song: Nestled in Swansea, South Wales, Ci Gofod & Mojo JNR (Jack and Josh) serve up “Digital Conversation”. A balanced dish with a sprinkling of funk, a pinch of groove, and a half cup of modern social commentary, with plenty of extra spice.
“Hymne à l’Amour” by The Scandi
About the artist: The Scandi is a Pop-Rock band based in Paris and this is our new clip and single. Par La Fenêtre is a downtempo pop song based on an acoustic guitar riff with few electronic elements, giving it a smooth modern touch. Its meaningful lyrics are about taking some time when you need a break, the perfect mood to chill after work.
