Laolu Releases New Song So Right

Laolu’s “So Right” is a moment of bliss with heavy acoustic guitar and the songstress all in her state of happiness. The South London singer survived depression and was glad to make a song dedicated to her progress. She admits that on the first listen people will assume she is singing about a romantic love but she’s really focused on coming to a powerful self-love. She says, 

“On “So Right,” I sing as though I am confessing my love for a partner, but I’m also singing to myself, I sing to the emotion of happiness as if it’s a person, because for me, who didn’t think I’d ever feel or be truly happy, this emotion was very alien to me. It was something I was not sure could happen to me, me being fulfilled and confident in myself again, I didn’t see that for myself. So now, I celebrate that I am on this journey and I make sure that I learn and enjoy my experiences.”

“So Right” is the third single from her All In Me EP coming out at the end of August.

Moses Sumney Releases Black In Deep Red, 2014 EP

Moses Sumney’s Black In Deep Red, 2014 EP is inspired by a protest he attended after a grand jury decided not to charge the officer who shot Mike Brown. Sumney stated in a press release:

Black in Deep Red, 2014 was ignited by the first and last time I attended a protest. It was in the fall of 2014, after a grand jury decided not to charge the offending officer in the Mike Brown murder, delivering the verdict just in time for them to get home for Thanksgiving.”

Sumney later went into the mountains and wrote these songs wondering about the true power of vocalizing one’s displeasure with the world.
