Singer/songwriter Sarah Beth Tomberlin hails from Louisville, Kentucky but now calls Los Angeles home. Her latest single Hours recently came to our attention here at The iM and has been on repeat ever since. Now, it’s time to share it with you.
“‘Hours’ is a song ruminating on time spent with someone who makes time spent doing nothing together feel meaningful. So many love songs are like ‘love me’ or ‘i love you’, but writing this I wasn’t sure what I was feeling or the other person’s feelings. I have a tendency to feel the need to explain myself before I’ve even been asked to. I think this song is me trying to do that in my head instead of with that person prematurely, even though I sent this song to them directly after I wrote it.“

We first told you about Toronto indie-rocker Mav Karlo back in early August when we came across his trippy little video for Elevator. Well, the singer/songwriter is back with another song (and video), and in our humble opinion, this is his best work yet. Now, it’s time for you to hear what we’re talking about.
“‘Detonator’ is about that moment when you stop saying to yourself “I’m such a fuck up” and start asking “why am I such a fuck up?” It’s a long and a hard process, but an important one, and that’s reflected in the wordier than usual verses. I wanted the detail in the lyrics to act like dots in a pointillist painting, disparate images that when taken together convey a singular emotion.”
