The Mid-Week Pickup for May 19, 2022

“Rex Mundi” by Cat Ryan

‘Rex Mundi’ came to fruition whilst I was visiting my family’s remote farm in rural Ireland. Having recently finished university and with no service or any wifi, I was able to sit down and write without distractions.

When writing, Rex emerged as the character in the lyrical narrative. However, the song isn’t specifically about greyhounds, but rather the symbolism of them being a strong and fast dog breed. In the song, Rex is running from social injustice but realises this won’t make a lasting change so adopts an alternative mindset. He attempts to fight and rise up against the perpetrators to become the ‘king of the world’.” — Cat Ryan

“Violent Delights” Blake Morgan

Indie-music iconoclast Blake Morgan’s highly-anticipated fifth album Violent Delights is out May 20, 2022, on ECR Music Group. The native New Yorker, artist, producer, multi-instrumentalist, label owner, and activist is riding high from the critical and commercial successes of his breakthrough singles and music videos of recent months. “I wanted to make a new record that would evoke a time in music when melodic Rock-’n-Roll hooks weren’t a vice, when optimistic, triumphant love songs with bite poured out of the car stereo.”

“Glad to be Alive (feat Justin Erinn)” by Doppe & Kokke

“We wanted to bring some hope back with this song and started working on it in December 2021 during the lockdown. The song starts with the darker side and then brings out the light in the second verse to bring hope and happiness back.” — Doppe & Kokke

“Du bist so viel mehr” (You are so Much More) by INA.

This track was written from the Queen’s perspective, ‘Avalon: Between Earth and Sky’. “We both love Celtic history, myths and magic, which is why we wrote the first Avalon album. And this new album is the continuation of the first one but from the feminine point of view, as the feminine energy gains power and recognition in the world, and keeps Avalon alive, on into the future.”

“Easy To Fall” by Estella Dawn

Love doesn’t always end in burning flames and tears. Often, times the passion just slowly erodes until it fizzles out, with no massive drama. “You can’t pinpoint what’s different, nothing has really changed, but you find yourself becoming more and more distant until eventually, you’re both lying in the same bed, but it feels like you’re oceans apart.”

“Muse” by SeineSation

“”Muse” is an ode to the whiplash of emotions that assault you when you meet someone special. It can be overwhelming and drive you literally “insane”. The vibe of this song is very unique and raw. It’s upbeat but dark, the song is a melting pot of contradictory vibes and genres that are harmonized.” — SeineSation

“Out of My Head” by Charlotte Sands x Aaron Gillespie

“Getting to write with Aaron Gillespie is always a privilege, but having him play drums on this song as well blew my mind. He’s such a magical person and an incredible creator and I’m so lucky I get to witness it in so many ways, it’s what makes ‘Out Of My Head’ so special.” — Charlotte Sands

“Song Of Fortune” by Deserto Parallax x Adaya

“The folk-song „Song of Fortune“ radiates an aura of Romany music, and reminds us of a bard in medieval times or a road trip through Ireland. But the topics dealt with in the song are relevant today more than ever and meet the Zeitgeist spot on.” — Deserto Parallax

“A.I.” by J. Mann

“”A.I.” is an indie rock song featuring layers of instrumentation including reverb-soaked trumpets while posing the question, “What’s more artificial than thought?” – J. Mann
