Demons and Monsters – [347aidan]

By Nick Mueller // 28 Sep 2020

Making his Lyrical Lemonade debut today, Ontario native and 17-year-old 347aidan brings one of the most impressive tracks I’ve heard all year. “Demons and Monsters” was manufactured entirely by Aidan himself, showcasing the massive amount of talent that he carries and the endless potential that lays ahead of him. As stated by Aidan, he started making music with “the thought of helping people and bringing joy to others while expressing the thoughts I can’t normally push out in a conversation.” Thousands and thousands of people have connected with those exact thoughts as he has slowly built one of the most supportive fanbases in the world. For this song specifically, he describes “the corruption we see through our phones everyday and the feeling that we need to be famous, pretty, or rich. I think as a society we need to search for peace of mind,” Aidan says, “and not small substitutes for a smile.” In a world that craves, desires, and needs peace of mind and happiness, this song performs as the perfect bridge for what could help more and more people understand the difference between true happiness and a small smile.

Salina – [Triple One]

By Nick Mueller // 24 Sep 2020

Sydney natives Triple One recently released a single titled “Salina” that not only introduced me to the band but turned me into their newest fan as well. After building a very strong base in Australia, the group found success abroad after landing themselves on Lil Peep’s Spotify playlist and the widely known YouTube channel Astari. This song (and video) showcase everything you need to know and give a glimpse into the massive potential that Triple One carries within. From the pop-like melodies to the intense-yet-fascinating visuals, the band brings an energy that only few have been able to do before. Vocalist Marty Bugatti noted that “Salina” is about heartbreak and how it often leads to self-destructive behavior” while Lil Dijon describes the track as being “a battle of choices and dealing with the consequences when the choices are made.” With their debut album Panic Force scheduled for October, “Salina” serves as the perfect welcoming committee and will only create a strong desire for more music, visuals, and hopefully soon-to-be shows.

Alone! – [Henry Francis]

By Nick Mueller // 24 Aug 2020

After growing up playing sports, singing, and listening to music, 16-year-old Henry Francis has recently found his edge through TikTok. After watching his cover videos and listening to his two released originals, it quickly became evident that it was only a matter of time for the young musician. Henry delivers every lyric with daunting emotion; leaving fans, myself included, always wanting more. For “Alone!” specifically, Francis produced, wrote, and recorded everything in its entirety only two days after a high school breakup that left him “cutting loose from the demons” involved. It’s one of those songs that you can leave on repeat for hours and find your mind wondering amongst distant memories. With plenty of more music on the way, I’m extremely excited to see where Henry takes his music journey and the great amount of success that his future holds. Be sure to check out “Alone!” below and follow him on Instagram and Twitter!

Holding My Own Hand – [Avery Lynch]

By Nick Mueller // 5 Aug 2020

Returning to our pages today with her brand new single, singer/songwriter Avery Lynch is only 21 and someone you need to be paying close attention to. “Holding My Own Hand” is now my new favorite Avery song as it showcases just how powerful her writing truly is. It’s one of those songs that put you in a moment from the past, leaving you deep in your thoughts about “people who aren’t there when you need them the most,” Avery explained. It shouldn’t surprise me by now, but the charisma she uses to accompany her vocals as she delivers every melody is something that can’t be taught. With an EP on the way, this songs serves as the second and final single before the highly anticipated debut project. As she expressed, this is meant to be a “self-live anthem” that anyone can make their own. Be sure to stream “Holding My Own Hand” below and follow Avery on Instagram and Twitter!

NEVER MET! – [Cmten] x [Glitch Gum]

By Nick Mueller // 22 Jul 2020

If you haven’t heard this track yet then you’re in the right place. San Francisco native Cmten and his internet friend Glitch Gum came together to create a track that would eventually take over the viral charts. “NEVER MET!” is one of those records that you hear once and can listen to again and again and again without getting bored. After speaking to Cmten and hearing about his story, it became evident that he has a deep passion for making music with his friends. As a high school student (2017), he started to fall in love with the idea of producing music, making trap beats for himself and his friends to mess around with. In April of 2018, Cmten put out his first song after creating the name Cmten so his friends wouldn’t know it was him. Without actually meeting in person, he heard Glitch Gum’s music through a random repost online and followed suit with a DM on Instagram that would forever change their lives. After offering Glitch the open verse on the song and him completing the task, the two decided to put the record out earlier this year. From it’s energetic tempo to it’s extremely unique production, …

Dribble – [Sycco]

By Nick Mueller // 19 Jul 2020

Brisbane native and 18-year-old known as Sycco makes a fashionable entrance to our pages today with the release of her brand new single titled “Dribble.” The young artist combines infectious pop melodies with her calming vocals, creating a mesmerizing feeling that leaves listeners wanting more. With mass amounts of new music every week, this song serves as a refreshment and a breath of fresh air for music loves around the world. Sycco noted that “this track was written in four hours” and that “Ed, the producer, and I were tired and hungover which maybe explains why it sounds a little dark.” Although the production may come across a bit darker than usual, this still feels like a summer song that you can cruise to with the windows down. In addition to the song itself, Sycco delivered a simple, yet phenomenal video to accompany what can be argued as her best release so far.

I Put You First (& You Did Too) – [Avery Lynch]

By Nick Mueller // 9 Jul 2020

One of my favorite new artists is making her debut on our pages today after delivering her brand new single titled “I Put You First (& You Did Too).” The young Boston native began writing and recording as a hobby and as something that she characterizes as joyful and therapeutic. After gaining recognition on TikTok for covering Dua Lipa, she slowly broke through more and more barriers as another post went viral; however, this post happened to be of Avery singing “I Put You First (& You Did Too).” The song was originally started on piano, making it nothing less than a sad, breakup ballad. After calling on her producer, the two decided that it would be best to add tempo and give it an extra level of energy. Relatable to say the least, the two created a song that listeners all over the world can connect to and share their experiences with. After speaking with Avery, it’s obvious that she’s having fun and shows no signs of slowing down. Be sure to stream “I Put You First (& You Did Too)” below and follow her on Instagram for more!

Take It Or Leave It – [Kierra Luv]

By Nick Mueller // 25 Jun 2020

Kierra Luv, a young prodigy known for her dazzling internet freestyles, recently released her debut mixtape titled Take It Or Leave It. For Kierra, this project’s purpose was to simply make a statement and give people a deeper understanding as to who she really is as an artist. She explained that she “wants people to understand her versatility and how much [she] can really do” as she’s more than just an internet freestyler. The mixtape consists of ten, infectious to say the least, songs and multiple features from superstars such as iann dior and Tory Lanez. When I spoke to Kierra about these collaborations, she noted that both of them came extremely natural. “While working with Taz (Internet Money), iann heard ‘Run Away’ and immediately wanted to jump on it,” Kierra said. For me, I’m never a fan of features that don’t sound authentic and as if the artists made the song for each other. Every feature that Kierra has on Take It Or Leave It does just that and gives you a genuine feeling while listening. For the other records, they take you on a personal journey giving you an extra boost of confidence and self-belief. Based on her thrilling …
