Monica Martin Releases New Single

MONICA MARTIN RELEASES NEW SINGLE “PATIENT”

LISTEN HERE

“(Monica Martin) examines the cruelty of denial and staying in a broken relationship.” – NPR

[Of “Thoughtless”] “a low-key and ultra-cool track” – NYLON

“She is definitely One To Watch.” – Idolator

“Martin is both evocative and sinfully infectious to listen to.” – EARMILK

“[“Cruel” is] a promising first solo step for an already established indie-pop voice.” – Ones To Watch

Today, Chicago-born and Los Angeles-based songstress Monica Martin releases her new single “Patient” via Republic Records.

Get it HERE!

“Patient” exclusively premiered on Consequence of Sound, who said, “The track finds the former PHOX frontwoman trying to find strength in pushing a loved one away while pop piano melodies sadly sway under constantly building alt-folk orchestration.” The song, produced by Jon Green (James Bay, Paloma Faith) and featuring noteworthy musician Ian Fitchuk (producer of Kacey Musgraves’ Grammy Award-winning album Golden Hour), marries acoustic guitars and steady beats. Blurring the lines between pop, alternative and folk, the lyrics evoke an emotional plea, “You’re going to have to be patient with me.” “Patient” follows her previously released singles “Thoughtless” and “Cruel.”

Of the track Monica Martin notes, “We all are on respective journeys to unpack mental baggage and needing to create that space while in a relationship can be really tough…especially when someone wants to feel needed, you can be perpetually soothed, and while that feels great and all, that limits you from forging healthy mental pathways for yourself. ‘Patient’ is a song asking for space; I want to be my best so my relationship isn’t about co-dependence.”

Kicking off what promises to be a breakout year, Monica continues to attract widespread critical praise. The 405 recently praised her “songwriting that’s undeniably truthful,” meanwhile, Flaunt claimed, “Her bewitched alto resonance sets a mood while lyrics document her inner confusions from past and present relationships.”

Monica Martin has bewitched listeners everywhere with a quirky and quixotic take on pop since 2012. She fronted PHOX as the group became an indie phenomenon whose resume included prime festival spots and late-night television appearances. She joined forces with Jeremy Larson of Violents in 2017 to release Awake And Pretty Much Sober and relocated to Los Angeles to begin work on her own project later that year. She has attracted acclaim from NPR, The New York Times, Consequence of Sound and more. Her debut single, “Cruel,” produced by notable British producer Eg White (Adele, Florence & The Machine, Sam Smith), set the stage for more music in 2019.

NETSKY Releases “I Don’t Even Know You Anymore”

Today, award-winning globally renowned electronic music producer NETSKY releases the brand-new single “I Don’t Even Know You Anymore” ft. Bazzi & Lil Wayne via Republic Records and Casablanca Records.

Listen HERE.

About the release, NETSKY said, “As soon as I heard Bazzi’s topline I knew it was special. We ended up doing a few different versions of the song before we found the production that felt perfect. It turns out it had always been a dream of both of ours to work with Lil Wayne and we couldn’t think of anyone we’d rather have to jump on the track and complete the song. I’m excited for the world to hear what we’ve done together.”

“I Don’t Even Know You Anymore” is the third installment from forthcoming Palmtrees & Powerlines, the two-part project that explores both NETSKY’s magnetic brand of pop music (on Palmtrees) and his genre-bending innovation as a creator of club tracks (on Powerlines).  Each song from Palmtrees & Powerlines will find a place within one of these two worlds NETSKY has built.  “I Don’t Even Know You Anymore” continues to build upon Palmtrees, alongside the previously released “Téquila Limonada” feat. A.CHAL.  While last fall NETSKY released “Ice Cold” with David Guetta, which finds its home in Powerlines.

NETSKY closed out an exciting 2018 by releasing Abbot Kinney EP, which featured five new songs with collaborations from Stargate and 1991, as well as features from KyleToulouse, and Jozzy.

Stay tuned for more to come from Palmtrees & Powerlines.

Mark Diamond “Road”

Today, Seattle-based singer and songwriter Mark Diamond releases his new single “Road” via Stardog Records/Republic Records.

 Listen to “Road” HERE!

 “Road” exclusively premiered on Billboard, who hailed it as “a synth-pop tune that sees the singer’s raspy vocals paired with a mid-tempo beat, inducing listeners to sway to the rhythm.” It arrives hot on the heels of the fan favorite “Steady.” Upon release, the single attracted critical praise with Variance describing it as “such a gem.” Not to mention he has amassed over 1.5 million monthly listeners on Spotify and counting.

 On the song Mark noted: “‘Road’ was one that just needed to come out. The day before it was written, we decided to call it an early night at the studio and left 11pm. I tried to go meet up with friends but was having a hard time switching back to “reality” after spending so much time in the studio. I went into the studio the next day slightly on edge, so I laid on the ground behind the board and wrote this song. Immediately I felt better — like I had just explained to myself that this is my life now. I needed to realize that it was my choice, and it’s absolutely beautiful to live this way. Hope is important to me these days. I think the world could always use more of it.”

 At 25 years old, Mark Diamond is a Seattle native who grew up listening to Tom Petty, Hootie & The Blowfish, The Beatles, R.E.M and Robbie Williams with his dad in his 1969 Chevy Malibu. Up until recently, Mark, now based in Los Angeles, was living in Seattle and working at a coffee shop for the last four years. He has been hard at work on his upcoming project with his debut song, “Steady,” leading the way. The song is included in a very large arsenal of finished tracks that he completed in 24 days with talented writer and producer Richard Craker, writing and recording in both London and Los Angeles. With his music, Mark wants to make people feel every emotion possible. “I have never had more fun making music in my entire life. Music should make people feel good more than it makes them feel bad. Not necessarily ‘happy’ songs, but songs that make you feel better about life than when you started listening to it.”

 

Riles’s New Single ‘Marijuana’

After skyrocketing to popularity in France where he composed mixed and mastered 1 song per week for a year with his concept Rilèsundayz (+250m views /+220M streams), Rilès is back with a new single “Marijuana”, first track from his debut album and a stunning video featuring Snoop Dogg!

WATCH THE VIDEO HERE!

With “Marijuana”, Rilès is showing us a new side of himself, more soulful and organic. It’s the first joint venture between 3 of the biggest international labels (Republic/Polydor UK/Capitol FR) in many years. Rilès is the artist to follow in 2019. Debut album to be out before the summer.

‘MARIJUANA’ talks about my relationship with cannabis and its counter-productive effects that goes against my habits/mentality. The chorus “Baby, you’ve been on my mind” introduces marijuana in an attractive way, which aims to trick the listener who might think I’m talking about a woman at the very beginning of the song. However, the further you go through the song, the more you’ll notice that I’m talking about the drug and its similarities with woman/sex/lust which are also a drug in a certain way. The video starts with a random work night at my desk when suddenly I’m struck by the need of marijuana. The video depicts the tribulations I go through to try to resist the drug before succumbing to it and ending up laying down in my bed. ‘ –  Rilès

The Score Releases “Pressure” EP

Today, critically acclaimed, buzzing LA based, New York born rock band The Score –  Eddie Anthony and Edan Dover – release their much-anticipated new Pressure EP via Republic Records.

Check out The Score’s Pressure EP HERE.

The six-song collection kicks off with the new single “Dreamin” [feat. Blackbear] which Billboard described as a “…thunderous synth-pop sound.. over an Imagine Dragons-esque melody.” The Score spring from hyper-charged verses into a hypnotically hard-hitting hook just before Blackbear weaves together an unforgettable cameo of his own. The EP also boasts the fan favorites such as “The Fear” and “Glory” as well as the 2018 hit “Stronger,” which has clocked over 30 million streams and 21 million-plus views for its music video to date. Check out the full tracklisting below.

On the EP and new single “Dreamin” the band noted: “Dreamin” represents an evolution sonically for us. This song in particular and the rest of the PRESSURE EP was about pushing our boundaries as artists and dealing with the insecurities that come with that. It was one of the scariest times for us creatively because we knew we wanted to grow and not fit in a box but naturally we were fighting our own doubts about getting out of our comfort zone. This EP really encompasses what we we’ve been going through and I think Blackbear is someone who related to that and therefore fit really naturally on top of the foundation we laid. We love what he did and what he brings to this song.”

Writing at a Hollywood and Vine spot, they joined forces with a bevy of high-profile collaborators, JT Daly [K. Flay], Heavy [Dirty Heads, Saint Motel, Sleeping with Sirens], Adam Hawkins [Twenty-One Pilots, Muse], and Dave Bassett [Elle King, Vance Joy] and shocked that vision to life.

New York-born and Los Angeles-based duo The Score stand out as a fiery genre-defying phenomenon, incinerating the lines between rock, pop, indie, and electronic. Powered by ubiquitous anthems such as “Oh My Love,” “Legend,” and “Unstoppable,” the boys racked up nearly 800 million cumulative streams within three years’ time over the course of two EPs—Unstoppable and Myths & Legends—and a 2017 full-length debut, ATLAS. As they ignited venues across North America, in addition their music has been used in campaigns for Jeep, NBA, and beyond.
