Must Be Miracles
'Way Out' is the second song taken from Blue Nights, 4-song EP by Creative Musicianship graduate duo Must Be Miracles. As the second stage of grief, it embodies isolation and confusion. It was written to represent a dream-like life, where one would feel trapped in a strange world after a loss. It’s an emotional and haunting song filled with electronic sonic elements, powerful hooks and cloudy chords. Better check it out:
BA Songwriting student Jessica Pepper just dropped her debut single, 'I Ain't No Rabbit'. The song, produced by recent ICMP graduate Lasse Corus, is about how it isn’t always easy to openly say where we come from, whether it's our country, home environment or culture background that we are talking about.
'Krystal', Matt Maltese's new record, will be released on 8th November. The BA Creative Musicianship alumnus said that it is an album of 'sad and sadder songs'. 'Jupiter' is the latest single taken from the record.
Sasha is back with her new song 'Tornado'. She introduced it like this: "Have you ever got too drunk at a party, woken up to find a cab receipt for £47 and a kebab in your bag from the night before? Then this song is for you!".
'With All Due Respect', the latest release by Songwriting alumnus Moncrieff, is a song for "anyone who's ever been beaten down and has had to truly stand up and fight back, not for anyone or anything, just for themselves". Listen here:
Lelli is the new dark electronic project by Songwriting student Théa Illel. Her latest release is 'Shadows' (ft. Loid). Listen here:
