Ria Mae New EP Stars

RIA MAE SHARES STRUGGLES WITH SOCIAL MEDIA ON NEW EP STARS

Canadian pop singer Ria Mae takes listeners on an emotional voyage through relationships on her new EP, Stars. Navigating beyond lyrical and sonic boundaries, Stars allows listeners to feel a sense of human connection, something Ria believes is lacking in today’s social climate.

“Hold Me” was inspired by the invasive negativity and anxiety social media create. Nostalgic for a simpler time, the duet emerged after a conversation with Frank Kadillac and Lowell. “We were talking about how easy life used to feel when we were young and how anxious a lot of our peers seem to be right now,” Ria stated in Divine Magazine.

The remainder of Stars illustrates Ria Mae’s ability to empathize with her listeners. “Trixi,” is a provocative track about desire and obsession and is the first character-driven song Ria’s written. “Not Your Type,” Ria’s forthcoming single, is a pro-consent pop song that showcases Ria’s playful side. “It’s You,” is a raw and honest breakup anthem.

Ria Mae’s first single “Bend” became an instant hit, skyrocketing to Top 5 at Hot AC, Top 15 at AC, and Top 15 at CHR radio, reaching platinum certification status. Ria was nominated for “Pop Album of the Year” at the 2018 JUNO Awards for “My Love.” Two years earlier, Ria also earned a JUNO nomination for “Single of the Year” for her platinum-selling hit “Clothes Off” that has over 13 million streams worldwide.

Today, British producer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist SG Lewis released his brand new collaborative single with Clairo ‘Throwaway’ via Casablanca/Republic Records in North America. The track follows ‘Blue’ as the second to come from ‘Dawn’, the third and final installment of his hugely ambitious three-part concept album Dusk, Dark, Dawn, out later this year.

‘Throwaway’ is the second collaborative track between SG and rising viral US star Clairo, after last summer’s breakthrough track ‘Better’. Clairo’s honeyed vocals on ‘Throwaway’ are perfectly framed by SG’s intimate, downtempo production; “Clairo is one of my favorite artists to work with, and a good friend of mine” says SG: “Throwaway was written in LA one evening – we were both super tired and had some shit going on in our respective personal lives. We sat and talked for ages, and after that Throwaway flowed out in no time at all. Clairo is such a special artist and an incredible songwriter, and I’m super proud of this song.”

Dusk, Dark,Dawn chronicles the trajectory of a night out through its different moods and genres and serves as a tribute to club and youth culture. While Dusk (released earlier in 2018) blended disco, smooth electro and funk and Dark explored distinctly heavier yet still diverse sounds, Dawn is a sonic embodiment of those euphoric sunrise moments and the feeling of togetherness at the end of a night well spent.

It’s been an incredible six months for SG Lewis that has seen the artist sell-out venues across the US, Asia and Europe. Dark lead single ‘Hurting’ has continued to grow, hitting No.1 on the Billboard Dance/Mix Show Airplay Chart two weeks ago, and with SG set to play a prime slot at this year’s Coachella, he continues to cement his status as not just one of London’s hottest new talents but also a formidable artist capable of making a splash on both sides of the Atlantic.

SG has previously collaborated with Col3trane, Raye, Ray BLK, The Neptunes/N.E.R.D’s Chad Hugo, Gerd Janson, Conducta and more as well as producing Dave’s ‘100M’s’ proving his worth as one of the most respected and prolific musicians from the UK and a producer capable of working outside of genre and style.
