If I Don't Lie Down

Today, Bad Wolf Records is pleased to welcome the talented and renowned artist, musician, and composer Ben Drysdale, hailing from Canberra, Australia. He has graced us all with his solo debut release titled 'If I Don't Lie Down,' officially launched on December 15, 2023. Ben has left us all amazed with this incredible masterpiece he has brought to light for our auditory delight. His unique style, which blends elements from folk and acoustic rock, in combination with the diverse range of musical and lyrical resources used in this song, reflects his inexhaustible creativity and ability to compose true musical gems that resonate with the listener on deeper levels. It is almost like this song was written for every one of us.

The main theme behind 'If I Don't Lie Down' invites us on a profound journey of reflection about our own inner strength and commitment not to surrender to the difficulties that life presents us. 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.

Where Are We Running

Evelí Ray, a talented Spanish Singer and composer unveils her latest masterpiece titled “Where Are We Running”. This song talks about something we all can relate to – our hectic lives and the sense of emptiness pervading our cities. The artist explains: “We run from one place to the other, phone in our hands, more disconnected from ourselves and each other than ever. It's a wake-up call to slow down and find meaning in little things that makes a huge difference”.

Evelí, in collaboration with accomplished musicians from Spain and various Latin American countries, creates a rich mixture of folk and pop music, fusing ethnic and acoustic instruments to craft an authentic sonic landscape that evokes the spirit of Iberian, nordic and Latin American cultures.

In contrast to her recent releases, this song unfolds as a one-take live performance, showcasing both her prowess as a composer and her remarkable skills as a vocalist and performer.

The seamless integration of pop elements with experimental musical devices in this composition is sure to capture the attention of even the most discerning musical enthusiasts. Mary's characteristic sound, which distinguishes her from the current musical landscape, creates a cinematic and atmospheric experience that swiftly becomes the listener's life soundtrack upon the first encounter with her music.

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.

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
