Updog has followed up his strong debut in July with another emotive powerhouse entitled "Goodbye". With his rich vocals and the heavy bass drop mixing in guitar with electronic production, he's an artist to watch.
"This song was inspired by something I have been struggling with for a while. I have been extremely frustrated with my cynicism, my continuous ability to push people away because of some inane reason, or because I am willing to hold grudges. I have a rational side which is always willing to forgive, forget and move on. But I also have my horrible side which has to shut the rest of me off from the world. I hate that side of me, and I guess that is my biggest enemy."
"In the song I'm saying 'goodbye' to my friends because I wish for them that they'd never got to know me this way or had to deal with this hostile side of me. I can be a horrible person at times and it's probably sometimes better that some people never meet me to begin with. By the end of the song I start having the realization that perhaps, me trying to protect other people's feelings by distancing myself, is hurting everyone else more than it's hurting me. But sometimes, I guess, my own brain can get the best of me, and take its chances on my happiness to fulfill its own egotistical ways".
Australian DJ/producer Throttle has put out a glistening new single called "Dreamer" that will you have floating off the ground. He wrote: "'Dreamer' is the start of a new chapter for me. It is about tearing down any creative walls I've built for myself and creating a full experience with my music."
"Why Do You Love Me" is the deliciously dark new pop single from Charlotte Lawrence. Written around a straight forward downward bassline, her entrancing vocals steal the show right through from the verses to the hook.
If like me you thought this would sound great simply over acoustic guitar, then wish granted! Check out her mesmerising acoustic version below.
