It’s another week of fresh music. Whether you need a tender reminder of the past or a song to give you hope in what’s to come, there’s music for every mood. Here is this week’s New Music Friday.
Julian Lamadrid – Teenager
Julian Lamadrid drops the reflective single “Teenager.” “There are moments in life that signify turning points and pivotal changes that can alter the view of oneself, the world, or even the person you thought you loved,” says Lamadrid. “’Teenager’ is the reflections of being blindsided by a reality that is veiled by innocent eyes. Adolescence brings heartbreak, growing brings pain, but by riding the wave, you are able to adjust.”
The Marías – Un Millón
The Marías share the music video for “Un Millón” off the band’s latest album CINEMA. “We want people to feel inspired to create anything, whether it’s music or art or whatever else they’re drawn to,” says lead singer María Zardoya. “Hopefully the songs will help them to break away from real life for a while and create some kind of dream world in their heads – something like the scenes to their own little movie.”
Make Friends – Fever
With the announcement of their forthcoming EP Is This Real, Make Friends release their single “Fever.” Speaking about the new song, the band said, “We began writing Fever around the time restrictions were beginning to lift after the first lockdown. The song is about the uncertainty of that period and the internal struggles of deciding whether it was okay to start going back to some form of normality. After being stuck inside for so long, the idea of being able to do the things you love again sounded appealing, but there was a stigma attached to it that made it feel wrong, despite what we were being told.”
Chancellor – CHANCELLOR
After five years since the release of his debut album MY FULL NAME, Chancellor is back with his self-titled sophomore album. The self-produced album consists of nine songs including the title track “Midnight” featuring Gaeko. Younha, Paloalto, and Knave are also featured within the album.
