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.

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.

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."

Quiet the Storm

Aldís Fjóla, a talented singer/songwriter hailing from Reykjavík, Iceland, has graced music enthusiasts with her latest release titled "Quiet The Storm." Officially premiered on November 22, 2023, this enchanting folk-pop song delves into Aldís's Nordic musical roots, showcasing her polished vocal performance accompanied by a magical instrumental backdrop featuring exquisite string arrangements.

What sets this piece apart is the unique combination of Aldís's vocal technique and her distinct timbre, creating an experience unlike anything you've heard before. Seamlessly navigating between vibrato and intricate falsetto techniques, the song evokes elements of gothic music while establishing a distinctive landscape by blending her vocal lines with background instruments influenced by strong acoustic pop, solidifying its status as a true masterpiece.

Originally written by her bandmate and close friend Hallldór Sveinsson, Aldís was captivated by the song and requested him to reimagine it, infusing it with her vocal magnificence. The collaboration resulted in an enchanting musical piece that delves deep into Aldís's emotions. She explains, "The lyrics are an ode to my friends—the ones who provide shelter in silence, stand tall when you break, and read your mind when you think you are fooling them with your mask."

In this way "Quiet The Storm" stands as her 13th release, not only contributing to her spectacular discography but also making a significant mark on music history.
