Start the weekend off right with 9 new tracks and music videos from this week:
Maeve drops new single “Bleach”
Maeve’s “Bleach” is the second single that will come from her upcoming album Carravaigo in a Corner Store. The self-producing Maeve and her collection of music appeal to the experimental nature of music, while also calling out the sinister world of social media. Maeve elaborates on the meaning behind her song; “If you take away the romanticised squeaky clean facade there is something really ominous underneath it all”. Maeve’s calming alto voice draws you in, and her message in “Bleach” is worth a listen!
girl in red releases “You Stupid Bitch”
This hot track was inspired by a friendship that singer/songwriter Marie Ulven wishes would have turned into more. Ulven explains “I was always there for this person who would get their heartbroken, and I would just come running…That person would never see me as anything else than just a friend, even though I feel like I could’ve made her so happy.” This single will be on girl in red’s upcoming album if i could make it go quiet, which her fans have been waiting for since her hit “i wanna be your girlfriend” that surpassed 2 billion streams! You can preorder her upcoming album-out April 30th– here!
