New Music: Women of September
// “Drinks and Dreams” by Bella Rose //-Pop
Bella Rose releases heavenly new single, “Drinks and Dreams,” her third solo track of the year. The Nashville pop artist is formerly known from indie pop band, The Young Something. Recently, Bella Rose and former band member, Alex Bonyata continue to write and produce songs together for Bella’s solo career. “Drinks and Dreams” is pure pop, strikingly flawless vocals and fresh production. Bella’s vocal style, songwriting, and charm form the perfect combination of a rising female pop star.
// “Pieces” by Yazmin Lacey //-Contemporary R&B
Singer-songwriter Yazmin Lacey of Nottingham, UK shares stunning single “Pieces” this month. “Pieces” is the first single from the artist since 2020. Soft, sultry, jazzy, and vulnerable, “Pieces” showcases Yazmin’s artistry and songwriting expertise. Smooth brass instrumentals compliment the simplicity of the concentrated vocals, leaving an ominous outro. We can picture this track spinning sweetly on a 7″ vinyl, soundtracking colder evenings to come.
// “Inky Road” by Wyldest //-Indie rock
“Inky Road” is the final track from Feed the Flowers Nightmares, the latest album from British indie artist Wyldest. The closing song reflects on twists and turns like a winding road leading to the relief of being home. “Rolling, I can’t believe, we’re free, I’m home,” Wyldest muses on “Inky Road” as the song seems weightless and optimistic. Check out Feed the Flowers Nightmares in full for the complete journey of her latest project.
// “Into You” by merci, mercy //-Alternative
Australian alternative artist merci, mercy amps up our Women of September playlist with latest single “Into You.” Surrounded in bright colored florals on the cover art, “Into You,” is a poppy, break-up track with a catchy, yet bitter chorus. “Into You” is the opening track of merci, mercy’s new EP is it me, or is it you? which debuts September 30th. Upbeat pop synths play contrast to heartbreak and self-reflective lyrics on this colorful track.
// “Static” by Bonnie Kemplay //-Singer-songwriter
Dirty Hit artist of Edinburgh, UK is building her debut EP with a chain of recent singles, the latest “Static,” out this week. On Kemplay’s third single, the alternative singer coins her songwriting style with soft tones and heavier guitars. It is impossible not to draw the comparison between her label mate, beabadoobee, on “Static.” Although similar, major credit goes to Kemplay for her guitar skills and songwriting. “Static” reflects on a feeling of hopelessness and uncertainty at a difficult moment during her career. Running out of things to say, running out of things to do, the 6-song EP will debut November 14th.
