Throughout this apparent hiatus, Jody was far from idle; he diligently prepared for his comeback, proving that the mind of an artists never sleeps, and "Isolation" stands as unequivocal proof of his dedication.

Through his captivating literary composition method, which makes the perfect balance between the use of metaphors and tangible elements, results in an interesting kind of conversation with ourselves; it acts as a true wake-up call that makes us question our actions and their consequences. What would happen if we chose this path? What would happen if we took the other? This aspect is particularly relevant for those of us who not only enjoy music but also compose it because the main inspiration for this piece was originated in the midst of an environment filled with other artists, prompting Ben to reconsider aspects of his life and decide to pursue his artistic dream.

'If I Don't Lie Down' is that advice you always wanted to receive from your close friend, a brother, or that conversation you always wanted to have with your father but never occurred. It invites us to stay grounded and never yield to our most passionate aspirations.

Catch My Fall Again

Swiss-born and raised singer-songwriter Chloé Sautereau releases her new single “Catch My Fall Again” on December 8, 2023. After “Ten Thousand Stories” and “Get to Know You Game” (featured on Spotify’s Created By Women) earlier this year, the artist continues her series of self-produced, stripped down singles, highlighting her vivid story-telling and unapologetically intimate tone.

‘Catch My Fall Again’ is about missing that person, hoping they’ll be there even when they haven’t been. It’s about being confused because your feelings manifest in ways you didn’t expect. It’s in part relieving, though, because it’s about accepting what you feel and felt, the moments lived, and that no matter what happens there’s value in those instants. It’s a love song and while it’s a little sad because that comes with the territory, to me it’s hopeful – simply in that there’s growth in finally putting down like “oh that’s
how I feel”. Both lyrically and melodically, this is a playful one to me as well. It’s a song to cozy up to this winter, to walk in the cold, to fall in love, or to heal to.”

“Catch My Fall Again” was written, recorded, and produced by Chloé herself, with the help of Ben Gordon on bass. Stripped back, the stakes are in her voice and grounded guitar. The track was mixed and mastered by Harry Burr.

Holy Night (A Christmas Song From The War)

After the successful release of "BlackWater" in April 2023, Kete Bowers, an experienced and talented singer-songwriter hailing from Liverpool, returns to showcase his latest masterpiece titled "Holy Night" (A Christmas Song From The War).

Officially released on September 10th, 2023, this enchanting folk song not only highlights his prowess as a composer and musician but also demonstrates his ability to connect with listeners on a deeply emotional level. With polished guitar and piano skills, along with his distinctive deep timbre vocal style, Bowers manages to pierce the listener's soul, creating a beautiful auditory experience from start to finish.

"Holy Night" marks his second release in 2023 and is part of his upcoming album set to be released in 2024. In this captivating piece, the artist invites us to experience the magic of Christmas in a nostalgic manner. Bowers employs a characteristic storytelling lyric composition style, serving as a lifeline for those who have been feeling lonely, sad, or disappointed in the cold world we currently inhabit, where nothing seems to fulfill us anymore. Through "Holy Night," Kete Bowers encourages listeners to appreciate the simplicity and beauty not only of the holiday season, but life itself, fostering a sense of warmth and connection within ourselves and what surrounds us.

Be Kind

"'be kind' Musically speaking, it's heavily inspired by 90s rock and contemporary music that pulls from that era (Alvvays, George Clanton, etc). As far as theme goes, it's our farewell to the people we never got a chance to get closure with. "be kind" is our first track to come out since we dropped our EP Garden in June, and it serves as a bridge into our next musical chapter. We went back to our DIY roots for this one and did everything (recording, producing, mixing, etc) on our own. Hope you enjoy, and if you do, we'd love to work together". -Wotts

Lilies

Kinga Kreffta, a talented Polish singer and songwriter residing in Leeds, United Kingdom, has recently unveiled her latest masterpiece, titled "Lilies," marking her seventh release in her discography. Drawing inspiration from a book that profoundly captured Kinga's attention, "Lilies" was born.

Kinga explains: "I wrote the song inspired by a book I read when I was a teenager. In the story, the husband comes back home after a long time spent at war. Unfortunately, his wife was unfaithful to him, and when caught cheating she decided to kill him. Then she plants Lilies at his grave. I thought this story was ridiculous and interesting at the same time that's why I decided to write a song about "crime in passion" as she didn't think it through and wasn't aware of what she had done."

The result is a captivating blend of her influences from various genres, including alternative, electronic, and art pop. Kinga effortlessly delivers a flawless vocal performance, seamlessly transitioning from soft-spoken vocals to high-range notes. As she narrates this story, she manages to expose a vivid and immersive experience from the very outset, invoking both a sense of calm and deep, dark sensations simultaneously, inviting listeners to embark on a unique journey through a spectrum of emotions."
