New Music Friday: 9.3.21

As fall slowly creeps in and the air is getting crisper, it’s time for more music to reflect on life and get in a chill mood. Here’s this week’s New Music Friday.

Eleanor K – The Panic’s Over

Eleanor K releases the new single “The Panic’s Over.” “The Panic’s Over’ is about spending years trying to control things that can’t be controlled,” says Eleanor K. “It was a self-fulfilling prophecy that I had become rather attached to: Romanticising bad and inefficient aspects of my life, self-loathing, anorexia, pushing everyone away and then being sad when no one was there.”

Rag’n’Bone Man & Nothing But Thieves – Alone (Remix)

Rag’n’Bone Man and Nothing But Thieves team up for the remix of “Alone.”Rag’n’Bone Man says of the remix; “Most singles I’ve released so far come with remixes and sometimes it’s a bit difficult to imagine what it’s going to be like – especially if it’s dance or drum & bass. With Alone, I felt like that wasn’t going to be possible and I had to think outside the box. I remember seeing Nothing But Thieves at some festivals previously and thinking how amazing they were – I love their sound. I think they’ve done a really interesting version of this song and it’s a real honour to have them on the track.”

Maeve Steele – Shimmer

Maeve Steele drops the single “Shimmer.” “That word shimmer really lit something up for me,” says Steele. “I wanted to dive into it and explore how it felt, both on the surface, like when you’re starting some new phase of life or falling in love and everything just sparkles, and on a deeper level as a writer, as someone looking out at the world and trying to figure what shimmers and feels special and unique to you.”

Tannergard – DNCE

Tannergard releases his debut single “DNCE.” “I’ve put my heart and experiences into this record so DNCE is a very personal song for me. Most of us have gone through some type of heartbreak, and trying to get over that can be tough. Sometimes, you have to make a decision to keep growing instead,” explains Tannergard. “The idea came to me one evening and I stayed up all night working on the initial idea. I showed it to Carys in the studio and she got what I was going for straight away. We worked really hard on it and finished the song that same night, final vocals and everything!  I’ve always loved big choruses that are uplifting and emotional and I always strive to make music that makes you feel something. I wanted to give people that soundtrack to get over their heartbreak.”

Maya Delilah – Thank You

Maya Delilah shares the emotional track “Thank you.” Maya explains, “Thank You is a sincere goodbye song written ‘to my ex’ as the final chapter to this EP as it is the journey of my breakup. The main line of the song is “Thank you for being the worst thing that’s happened to me”. I wrote it with the meaning of basically “thank you for being so awful, it made losing you easier, with no doubts that I am better off.” But the aim of the song is to be more sincere than blunt. The song later on is about feeling more free, like I can almost ‘breathe again’. The song is very gospel inspired with a 6/8 time signature. It’s meant to feel like the big emotional outro of a live show.”
