March marked the start of a very unique situation in the world for all of us, and fortunately, music can help coping with it. Here are some highlights from this month's featured songs, with a few words from the artists themselves:
Fudge. - Hugger-Mugger
n. Disorderly confusion; muddle. n. Secrecy; concealment. adj. Disorderly; jumbled.
Our monthly musical journey begins in Leeds, England. From the start, the energy builds, just to let it go, and create that hugger-mugger state of mind. If you play with fire, then you're gonna get burned:
"There was a person that caused a lot of conflict within the band at the time of writing this song, the chorus lyrics are pretty literal."
Keeping the UK feel, from London we get Miss Rose with a song that came to be from a trip to the US:
"The track was written when I was solo traveling in Nashville and Los Angeles. I'm from London but always wanted to explore the US music scene. I was in Nashville for a music writing camp I was invited to to. Then I went to LA, I'm lucky to have friends in LA I could stay with.
The song was based off of the experiences I had over there and how it felt being there. I'd been to LA before but not on my own without family. I felt really grown up and independent, and I think the song was a celebration of that."
From Los Angeles, we go north to San Francisco, CA, with the stripped piano version of a pop and EDM track about the uncertainty of love.
I don't know why I'm still in pain, I don't know why I told you that you could not stay, by my side Looking for a message in a bottle But all it does is leaving me hollow I hear your melody in my head 'Cause love is our anthem
