new music: Minke

minke.jpeg

“Too Late” is from London singer/songwriter Minke’s debut EP The Tearoom. Actress/comedian/director Aisha Tyler directed the video which stars (very cute!) actor Jean-Luc Bilodeau from ABC Family’s Baby Daddy.

Minke said: “Songwriting is my therapy. It’s what I’ve done since I first picked up a guitar when I was eleven. It’s the only thing that makes me feel better, so it’s what I do. When people listen to the Tearoom, I hope they get whatever they need from it. It could be reassurance or someone to identify with. That’s what makes me happy. It’s all I can do.”

new music: Fiona Grey; The Drums

Los Angeles singer/songwriter Fiona Grey explained the new song: “There is a lot about living in a pop culture centered world that we deem as ‘normal behavior’. I hope that the music can remind the listener that this follower-centric, alternate persona universe we live in is all temporary happiness.” She has a beautiful voice and the song makes a powerful statement. The EP Cult Classic is out now.

 

About The Drums dreamy and contemplative new pop song, Jonny Pierce said: “I’m a big believer in making yourself vulnerable in personal relationships, and keeping your guard down. This song talks about how I sometimes make myself fully emotionally available to people who can’t reciprocate because of their own insecurities, and the frustration that ensues … This song is my tongue-in-cheek exploration of those ideas – being kind, not taking shit from anyone, and learning to hold people accountable for their own choices, while still holding some empathy for them.” The Drums fifth album Brutalism is out April 5, 2019. They’re on tour this spring.
