So many incredibly talented musicians out there and these are some of our favourites this month. Some old, some new. Check out our Plays Of The Month for April 2020 below if you know what’s good for you!
We came across indie-pop outfit King Sweeties debut single this afternoon and boy are we glad we did. This song is as infectious as it gets… all the way from Auckland, New Zealand.
Check out Let’s Just Stay In Bed in the embed below. No word on when we can expect more music but as soon as we know, you’ll know.
Montreal indie-pop songstress MUNYA has outdone herself on her latest single, Boca Chica. The song was released just yesterday by record label Luminelle Recordings and revolves around, of all things, a small Texas village where SpaceX recently set up shop.
“The world is upside down, we don’t know when this is going to end and what the long term effects are going to be…but I know we have to keep dreaming. Boca Chica is the name of a town in Texas where SpaceX is building dreams, they are building a starship to Mars. I know a Starship is not going to save any lives today, but I also know that the science and technology we create from these programs will help shape the future for the best just as the Space race did in the 60’s. My dream is that we realize we are one, realize we are all in this together, that we all need to help each other and that we can do the impossible if we do it together and keep dreaming.”
