Invisible Wars

After her successful two latest releases, "Live It All" in September 2023 and "Ocean Inside Of Me" in October of the same year, Luna Keller, a talented Spanish/German singer and songwriter based in the city of Cologne, Germany returns to gift us another of her precious works, under the title of "Invisible Wars."

Officially released on November 30th, this song marks her sixth release this year, signifying not only a new achievement in her musical career but also the beginning of a new chapter in her experience as an artist. Thus, "Invisible Wars" holds significant importance within the new material she has been preparing in the studio, being part of her third full-length album titled "Oceans Inside Of Me," ready to be released on 2024. It serves as a continuation of her previous release of the same name, both pieces fitting together like a puzzle that Luna skillfully unveils as 'chapters' of a whole story to keep us all eagerly anticipating.

In "Invisible Wars," Luna invites us to explore those feelings of loneliness and frustration with which we have all felt familiar at some point in our lives, yet we never take the time to talk about them.

Mystery

Have you ever wondered why you met "that" specific person? Or why things are unfolding in a certain way? Well, Mark Millar, the talented guitarist, singer, and songwriter hailing from Edinburgh, United Kingdom, has the answer.

Today, he has graciously shared with all of us his latest studio work titled "Mystery," a true gem of rock-folk that delves deep into this theme. Officially released on January 1, 2024, this song stands out as one of his most prominent and outstanding creations to date. Not only does it showcase an incredible level of musical production, with his voice and instruments presenting an impressive lively and colorful sensation through the stereo field, but it also brings forth a captivating revelation through its lyrics.

"Mystery" explores the phenomenon of incidental interactions, those we experience daily without knowing their purpose or where they might lead us in the future. The artist explains, "There are some interactions of no consequence, others are set to catch up with us at some point in the future." His truth-filled narrative gains relevance in today's social landscape, where the apparent individualism of people often leads us to force connections that simply have no destiny, diverting our attention from those that do hold significance in our lives.

In this way, "Mystery" is Mark's gift to us, inviting reflection on human relationships from his unique perspective. Through his lyrics, he encourages us to approach life's daily offerings with lightness, emphasizing the importance of spontaneity in our lives.

Farewell

Pablo Lavins, an independent artist from the city of Frutillar, Chile, presents his new song "I Want to Drink With You" from his latest studio work titled "Anxiety Relief," which focuses on his internal world and the journey that represents the constant oscillation between different human emotions. ​The album features a much more complete instrumentation compared to his previous release, thanks to the inclusion of musical instruments such as drums, electric guitar, bass, and piano, in addition to classical string instruments like cello and violin present in his previous work album "Old New Year's Drinks."

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.

Drawn from personal experience as well as from listening to a lot of others’ thoughts, Dominic Romano shares some of his most vulnerable thoughts on what it means to recognize and recover from a toxic relationship. As a production, "after we’re Gone" is one of Dominic’s most ambitious and epic sounding projects to date.

fairytale

mia van de loo makes her official debut in the musical panorama with her first-ever release titled "fairytale." This captivating track premiered on November 17, 2023, and delves deep into the complexities of human relationships, particularly the challenges of infatuation with the wrong person.

Skillfully blending an atmospheric aura led by the brilliant sound of string arrangements and an enchanting lyrical composition style, "fairytale" paints a vivid picture of the constant struggle between surrendering to love and maintaining one's sanity. Mia's vocal performance is the key to conveying this message. With her characteristic intricate vocal lines that traverse between soft whispered vocals and an extremely high falsetto technique, she creates an immersive sonic landscape that feels magical—something out of this world. This mirrors the way love feels when it blinds us and makes us naive, aligning perfectly with the main theme of the song.

The enchanting journey of "fairytale" is just a glimpse into mia's artistry, setting the stage for her upcoming debut EP, "Open Book," scheduled for release on December 8th. With a promise of even more emotionally charged compositions, this anticipated EP is poised to showcase mia's depth as both a captivating singer and a gifted composer.

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.

Sunchild

"You are born, you grow up, and you die, they say..." but nobody tells you that death, as such, is not always earthly; sometimes it's spiritual, and it occurs more than once in the course of our lives, and after that comes the 'Rebirth.'

With this intriguing premise, Jakob The Liar, a talented folk-pop singer/songwriter based in the beautiful city of London, presents his latest release, "Sunchild," an emotional tale of empowerment that goes beyond merely inviting us to self-reflection; it offers us a chance to start again.

In challenging moments, sometimes all it takes is for a friend, a family member, or in this case, music, to deliver those right words—words that comfort and make you feel understood in the midst of darkness.

"Sunchild" by Jakob The Liar is precisely characterized as a story in which we are a part. With an impressive blend of musical and lyrical prowess, this talented musician manages to create an intimate connection with the listener, where each word resonates within like a declaration of inner strength. Through his harmonious melodies, he invites us to rise and find hope when it seems like everything around us has crumbled.

Officially released on January 5, 2024, "Sunchild" not only marks the artist's first release in the new year but also serves as a sneak peek into what Jakob has been cooking up in the recording studio lately—his eagerly awaited EP, 'Wake Up Mr. Kupferberg.'

No matter if you're struggling within a bad moment or even enjoying a good one, this song will always cheer you up or accompany you on your life's journey, always reminding you that you belong to something bigger.

Love Me Just a Little

In a short but rapidly ascending musical career towards stardom, the talented singer and songwriter John Conlin, hailing from Toronto, Canada, and now based in the beautiful city of Los Angeles, USA, brings us his latest studio release titled "Love Me Just a Little".

Both pop and rock music enthusiasts can marvel at this song as it strikes a perfect balance between both styles, masterfully blending them in the artist's authentic and unique style. With an imposing vocal presence that makes the choruses feel like a true anthem of resilience and a musical structure much more oriented towards a sound with cinematic undertones, this incredible track, spanning its 3-minute duration, immerses listeners in a profound experience that resonates perfectly with modern times and human relationships.

John Conlin, with his intensely provocative lyrics, vividly embodies that sensation of desperation that leaves us feeling that 'void' due to the lack of emotional responsibility and disconnection between people, while the impressive background instrumentation creates an energetic essence that draws elements from dark pop, synth-pop, and pop-rock to craft a cathartic experience that deeply connects with the audience in every chord and note, making it the perfect soundtrack to understand the complexity of modern relationships

How to Write a Pop Song

"If you think too hard, you will get it wrong; you've got to stay nice and stupid if you want to write a pop song." With this premise, Dylan Galvin, a talented singer and songwriter, emerges from the vibrant streets of Los Angeles, California, to captivate audiences worldwide with his inexhaustible talent and impressive musical flair, while he delivers a crucial message about the reality of being an independent musician in this 'artificial' industry.

His latest studio release, "How to Write a Pop Song," precisely reflects the challenges underground artists face daily—the external pressure that many of us grapple with, often forcing us to abandon our musical dreams just because we don't 'fit in' with the standards. Dylan fearlessly tackles this theme with incredible courage, not only through his music but also by employing a very particular lyrical composition technique. He invites us to complete a 'checklist' to achieve success with a little dose of sarcasm, challenging the current music industry and its elitist role encouraging us to explore the artistic beauty of authenticity.
Officially released on January 19, 2024, "How to Write a Pop Song" marks his fourth studio release within his masterful discography. After an apparently 'inactive' period, during which "In The Blood" (released in 2022) gained prominence as one of his standout tracks, Dylan was far from closing the curtain. Instead, he was preparing this great surprise for all of us, as "How to Write a Pop Song" is undoubtedly one of his most ambitious projects to date.

Departing from the acoustic essence of his previous releases, Dylan has embraced a more daring auditory experience this time, constantly flirting with both rock and pop music simultaneously in an organic way. He breaks conventions with palpable originality and a distinctive auditory imprint, evident in energetic rhythms, harmonious vocal melodies, and his guitar proficiency.

The result is a refreshing sound with the highest quality production, showcasing not only his artistic development over the years but also highlighting his versatility in approaching new genres. Proving that true authenticity lies within us and is not defined by which genre you like to play.
