We’ve all got a little ‘Stargazer’ within us. MaryaStark explores this, along with featured artist ElijahRay on their mesmerising single via Rose Bard Arts. The single is taken from her latest album, Sapphire which was inspired by the folklore of the Chalice Well. The songstress is currently hosting a 7-week songwriting course which is created to “develop your voice and creative self-expression”. Find out more here.
“This song was inspired by the shocking and cathartic beauty of the Northern Lights. I became obsessed with the natural phenomenon and wanted to write a song about what the experience would be like if the northern lights were happening inside of my being.” – MaryaStark tells us about her single, ‘Stargazer ft. Elijah Ray’.
CadetCarter, a band known for their indie-rock stylings that keep fans intrigued, have released the music video for their latest single, ‘The Best Part’. Both the single and the video were released today via 8 Ohm Records. The video was directed by Bastian Scholl, who uses the chance to explore childhood memories and nostalgia.
“I am so happy Cadet Carter has asked me to work with them on their new video. The song is probably the most optimistic thing that came out this year and I wanted to give the video a melancholic but still positive spin. I can not wait for everybody to listen to the song and watch the video!” – Bastian Scholl tells us about the joys of working on the video.
The band have been compared to the likes of Blink182, KnucklePuck and BiffyClyro and the comparisons stand true, as the soaring guitar riffs and spirited vocals take centre stage. The final impression of childhood play times resulting in long-lasting is the positive reinforcement we were needing to end the year on.
Snowk’s‘Under The Moon ft. J.Lamotta Suzume’ has just been released via Namy& Records and Warner Japan. The single will dance its way into your heart with Tel Aviv-born, Berlin-based singer J.Lamotta Suzume‘s powerful vocals standing out.
Speaking of the single, J.Lamotta Suzume tells us, “Last summer, I found myself working mainly on projects with people from Japan, and the collaboration with Snowk was one of them. When I first heard his beat, my feet started tapping on the floor. I started singing some ideas over it, and everything came together. The lyrics came relatively quickly, the melodies were flowing out, and I was dancing. It’s easy to collaborate with such freedom. Snowk and I never met in person, but we managed to get things done from far away and with mutual trust.”
The duo could be considered “Kitsunéprotégé” as they have had several releases with the label, contributing to their tidy count of over 2 million plays across streaming platforms.
Pause and consider “The Best Part” of the year with CadetCarter and their newly premiered single. Due for release on the 13th of November via 8 Ohm Records, ‘TheBestPart’ displays the indie-rock quartet’s talent for looking on the bright side of life.
Speaking of the single, Cadet Carter tells us: “The world is full of pessimists, especially since the start of the pandemic. And I’ll admit, I‘m a pessimist myself pretty much most of the time. But right now, nobody seems to keep the light on at the end of the tunnel, no one seems to be willing to fly the flag of optimism. So we decided to write a song about not losing hope and staying positive, just for a change. That is how ‘The Best Part’ came about.”
A step away from songs such as ‘King Of Pain’ and ‘A Bad Few Weeks’, we’re pretty happy with the positive direction the band is going in and we believe the rest of the world will be too? Tell your local radio stations about them today to make sure everyone gets a bit of sunshine in their life.
