William Bolton - Still Love Me
In this new pop track from LA sensation William Bolton, he grapples with adoration for an unnamed girl while also honestly contemplating his own shortcomings as a lover. He frames his contemplation as a catchy falsetto tinged vocal riff over a fun hip-hop inspired pop beat.
Of the track, Bolton says this: I used to have a girlfriend who was a Broadway singer/actress. I used to go visit her on tour and see her perform. I always dressed in these crazy outfits (i have a unique fashion sense) and she always wished I "dressed nice" like the other guys in the audience. This song is about asking a lover to look past all of your shortcomings and love you flaws and all. Because that's the best kind of love :)
Chasing Velvet - If I May (Szabo Remix)
This energetic dance pop remix melds the best of two of Australia's hottest new acts. Defying gravity with soaring synths, and punchy drums, this melodic instrumental supports the twin vocals of Chasing Velvet. A piano drives the track forward, while vocal chops give the chorus a carefree, wild feel.
Of the track the artists say this: The origins of “If I May” have been interesting to say the least, we began with a demo we created out of the need of more demos, and Naomi and I weren’t really vibing with the lyrics but quite liking everything else (chords and melody) so with our producer helping us, we set out to re-do all the lyrics, this proved difficult as we had the old lyrics stuck in our heaps. Funnily enough, what is now “If I May” was ultimately written about the fact that we didn’t know what to write about.
Jay Warren - Felony Love
In this yearning ballad, Jay croons for a love so strong that it is criminal. Atmospheric beats support his silky vocal prowess with smooth chord progressions and a kill keytar solo at 3:30.
Of the track Jay says this: Felony Love is interesting because it’s a natural oxymoron. From the title, to the way the music and vocals juxtapose the lyrics. The song speaks to a dysfunctional relationship in which the narrator feels trapped by the love he has for his significant other. The concept of Felony Love is twofold. The narrator feels as though his partner should be charged with Felony, while also realizing the level of love he feels is so overwhelming it should be a crime. He wrestles with the idea of leaving the relationship and why that may be the best option. The music and vocal performance, however, paint a very different picture. The production immerses the listener in the passion and heated romance of the relationship.
