Chantitown Reveals Second Single from her upcoming debut EP ‘Cause and The Cure’

We are excited to give an update on Chantitown’s debut EP Cause and The Cure (Release date 13th July): the second single named ‘Mother Of Sun’ is now available to listen! 

Chantitown’s latest single “Mother Of Sun” is an alluring, cinematic siren-song; soaked in reverberation, and immersive in reflection amidst glossy notes and shimmering atmospheres.

On the latest single, Chantitown comments: “I have learnt those we love never go away even if they are no longer with us. They are there, walking beside us. No matter how dark life may get, the sun is going to rise. It never ceases to amaze me its power to heal and shine light. I wanted to capture this power, this atmosphere by using drums, percussion, guitar and my voice in the hope this piece would translate to something larger than life, something people could really connect with.”

Anna Aaron releases Official Video of ‘Why Not’

Swiss producer and indie-songstress Anna Aaron shares the music video for her fiery single, ‘Why Not’ (Radicalis Music). After previous successful singles ‘Stellarling’ and ‘Linda’, Anna Aaron initially gained notability by fellow Swiss jazz musician Sophie Hunger, prompting celebrated label Two Gentlemen Records (Fauve, The Young Gods, The Appleseed Cast) to take interest in the Basel-based artist and sign her right on the spot.

The latest single ‘Why Not’ by Anna Aaron is a pounding electro-tinged voyage through kaleidoscopic whirlwinds; deep driving basslines and energetic percussion stream like rivers of lightning underneath Aaron’s provocative, animated vocal presence. Her confrontational lyrics “Why not have no expectations towards yourself?” reminds us of the impact one can have in this unforgiving world.

Speaking on the latest single, Anna comments: “I wrote ‘Why Not’ very fast in the spirit of the moment. The lyrics however were challenging to write because I wanted them to be cutting but also funny; so to make it work I had to maintain a high tension between precision and delirious ranting.”


Lily Allen speaks out over #MeToo movement

Lily Allen has spoken out over the #MeToo movement and has claimed that it has not really had an impact on the music industry.
Lily Allen was previously critical of the #MeToo movement arguing that it just doesn’t “seem to be [taken] that serious.”
She stated at the time: “When people started talking about the #MeToo stuff, what I saw was a lot of men going, ‘not me, I don’t behave like that’, when a lot of men that I do know do behave like that.“It just doesn’t seem to be [taken] that serious. Nobody’s changing. Everybody’s going, ‘this has happened to me, this is really awful’, [but] what’s happening as a result? Like, oh there’s some public shaming going on, ‘Oh no, oh my god, you’ve been outed on Twitter’. That doesn’t change any of what’s happened.”

Recently, in an interview with the New Statesman she had explained why it hasn’t hit the music industry. “It’s probably because we’re all in long term contracts,” she said.
“There isn’t a HR place to go to because everyone’s self-employed. You can’t go to the record company, nobody there’s looking after you. Management’s not looking after you. You’re all on your own.”

Lily Allen added: “And also, I think, the culture of music is, whether we like it or not, geared around alcohol and drugs. From the making of music in the studio – people want to loosen up and drink, to get themselves into the writing space – to when it comes to playing live, what makes it tick is the booze.

“People feel like they can get away with certain things because there is lots of alcohol around and alcohol can be blamed, rather than individuals. On both sides I think women can feel, ‘Oh I can’t absolve myself of responsibility because I drank.”
