Zoey G - Runaway

Having already mastered the guitar, piano, saxophone, bass and ukulele, 16-years-old Greeley, Colorado-based pop songstress Zoey Georgeades, aka Zoey G steps out into the spotlight today with the release of her debut single entitled "Runaway", which was produced by Stefan Litrownik and co-produced by Shannon McArthur.

Written about the push and pull that can occur in a budding relationship, "Runaway" reflects the conflict that a person may feel when they’re unsure of where they stand in said relationship. "We all have emotions, whether it be the ‘I don’t care’ side or the 'I really care' side," explains Zoey G. "'Runaway' conveys both of those sides, the instrumental portion being the 'I don't care,' and the melody/lyrics being the 'I really care'side."

Guaranteed to have you singing along, "Runaway," demonstrates that while she may be young, Zoey G is remarkably talented and there's still a lot more to come from this exciting newcomer as she prepares for the release of her upcoming EP.

Listen to "Runaway" below.

"Runaway" is available now on iTunes.

Cilia - Myself and I

Following the release of her previous single, "Hardcore Heartbreak" way back in 2016, Swedish singer/songwriter Cecilia Nilsson, aka Cilia returns today with yet another anthemic pop masterpiece called "Myself and I", which was written in collaboration with songwriters Sibel, Gustaf Holter and Christian Persson.

Speaking on the track, Cilia says:

"'Myself and I' is about a relationship between a girl and a boy, where the girl wants to keep it casual and don't want anything serious while that's all the guy wants. And how the girl constantly tries to show and tell him and he must respect that."

Listen to "Myself and I" below.

"Myself and I" is available now on iTunes.

Dream Wife - Dream Wife

London-based and British/Icelandic born punk rock trio Dream Wife, comprised of Rakel Mjöll (lead vocals), Alice Go (guitar and vocals) and Bella Podpadec (bass and vocals), have just announced that they will release their long-awaited self-titled debut album on January 26th, but starting today you can stream the album in its entirety courtesy of NPR First Listen.
The 11-song collection will include their previously released singles, "Hey Heartbreaker", "F.U.U.", "Somebody", "Fire", "Let's Make Out" and "Kids".

Since forming in 2015 as a college art school project, Dream Wife - a name chosen as commentary on society's objectification of women - have become one of the foremost up-and-coming bands out of the U.K. With their debut album they come out guns blazing, armed with strong messages of empowerment backed by their fierce live shows where inclusivity is not only encouraged, but required.

When it comes to their sound, Dream Wife worships at the twin altars of David Bowie and Madonna. A scene unto themselves, their gigs are a riot of handmade props and stage sets that cover everything from space beaches to haunted graveyards, while their finely tuned show is the product of extreme DIY beginnings. It’s the songs too that make the shows, from the fiery fury of "F.U.U.," to the new wave politico-pop of "Somebody," and euphoric old school indie hit "Fire." These are songs in the classic mold – big, beautiful and crazily catchy. And, of course, there’s the three dynamic women at the band’s core. Alice is convinced the group’s drive and dedication comes from the fact they’re all fire symbols. "We're a power trio," she says. "There’s a crazy energy between us." Bella is in agreement; "It is magic when we’re together." Get ready to fall under Dream Wife’s spell.

DYLYN - Wolf

Following last year's release of her previous singles, "American Nightmare", "Secret" and "Mimosa", the latter which we chose as one of our Best Songs of 2016, Toronto-based alt-pop artist Gwendolyn Lewis, aka DYLYN makes a welcome return today with her invigorating new single called "Wolf", which is laden with 80s synths, sultry vocals, and some added rock 'n' roll flare. "Wolf" also comes with the announcement of DYLYN's eagerly-awaited debut album titled Sauvignon And A Kimono, which will be released on February 23rd.

Speaking on the track, DYLYN says:

"'Wolf' was the aftermath of a shitty breakup and my family divide. It was as if the universe was telling me to rebel and revert to autopilot. Shutting my feelings off for a little while was a much easier way to live - misery loves a hot guy."
