This Weekend’s Tunes
“Leaving You” by River Lion
About the song; River Lion notes: “It wrote itself while I was waiting at a stoplight. It was Valentine’s day and I was driving home after a fifteen-hour shift delivering flowers. I was watching the moon and singing aloud to myself and it was the first thing that came to me…”

“I Would Like to Leave” by Wouldn’t Say
About the song: “”I Would Like to Leave” is like nihilism with a spoonful of sugar to help it go down — a pop-rock tune for people who hate the Earth and would rather take their chances elsewhere.
Where, exactly? Who can say; but blast this in the cockpit as you exit the atmosphere.” — Wouldn’t Say
“Joy Never Rides Alone” by Still Years
“When You Were Mine” by The Shadowboxer
About the song: ““When You Were Mine” walks that fine line between sweet reminiscence and a cold reality. There’s happiness in the memories, and pain in not being able to live them anymore. This single leans into the alt rock side of the band.” — The Shadowboxers
“The Fray” by 4nzek
About the artist: A genre-alchemist working to bring something new to the EDM/bass scene…or to bring the genre to places it’s never been via the production of “deep hybrids”. Showcasing his innovative production style, 4nzek has released more than forty multi-genre tracks averaging about 9-minutes long each that incorporate multiple electronic dance music styles including trap, electro house, dubstep, and progressive house.
4nzek seamlessly transitions between each style as if it were a DJ mix. With powerful deep bass lines, electro-infused synths and uplifting melodies throughout, 4nzek’s music is consistently diverse and unpredictable.
“Mediocracy” by Kipani
About the artist: Kipani is an artist based in Upstate New York. Growing up in a small town, she was encouraged at an early age to take up the piano. She hated it. After years of coerced lessons, she decided to take a hiatus from her classical background. Although she continued to pursue her passion for music through other various avenues, nothing ever seemed to fit. It wasn’t until later that her rekindled relationship with her former ivory nemesis would effortlessly combine with her love of Indie Pop, thus igniting the spark that had previously been missing.
“Bay Of Angels” by Mark Sergi
About the song; “”Bay Of Angels” is a personal song that I’ve been dissecting since it was made in the heavy lockdown here in Victoria. I’ve been itching to release it and am so glad it is finally getting out there. A bright yet dark tale of a push and pull, reflecting want and need in a dystopian world of smut and beauty. I hate talking about meanings of songs as I’d like it to be interpreted whatever way the listener wants, so I’ll leave it at that.” — Mark Sergi
“Paper Boats” by Anindya Mukherjee
About the song: “”Paper Boats” is a piano ballad. Soft and soulful, it is reminiscent of a time when life was simpler, and we thought everything we dreamed was possible…and then we grew up.” — Anindya Mukherjee
