What's In Our Inbox? #82

With so many emails arriving in our inbox on a daily basis it's sometimes difficult to keep track of all the great new music that is being sent to us. As much as we would love to give each artist/song their own individual feature, we simply do not have the time to do so. So in order to make things a little easier on ourselves and to help get more music out there to YOU, we've decided to start doing a new feature that we're calling What's In Our Inbox?, which we'll try to share at least once a week. Please listen to each song and if you like what you hear then be sure to give the artist(s) a thumbs up and/or a follow on Facebook/Twitter.

The Magnettes - Sad Girls Club

Swedish trio The Magnettes, comprised of Rebecka Digervall, Sanna Kalla and Tomas Bäcklund Thuneström, who describes their sound as 21st Century Fuck-Pop, have today unleashed their highly infectious and anthemic new single called "Sad Girls Club", which also serves as the fourth single following "Bones", "Killers In A Ghost Town" and "Hollywood" to be lifted from their forthcoming album, Ugly Youth, due out on March 31st. The album was mixed by Christian Cummings, who has worked with the likes of Tiësto, Icona Pop, and Florence + The Machine, just to name a few.

"The Sad Girls Club is not something we invented," the band shares. "It's a movement that we're part of. It's the idea of a sanctuary, for whatever reason, that treats you as the person you want to be. Where you're allowed to be sad, different or plain hostile. To counteract a world that tells you to smile when everything systematically sucks. This is our party and we'll cry if we want to."

Listen to "Sad Girls Club" below.

"Sad Girls Club" is available now on iTunes.

Premiere via Music Times.

CAT - You Belong To Me

Los Angeles-based singer/songwriter Catherine Pierce (formerly of sister duo The Pierces) has just launched her brand new solo project under the moniker CAT as well as unveiled her sultry debut single called "You Belong To Me", which was written by Catherine herself and produced by Jason Lader (Frank Ocean, James Blake, Andre 3000) and Leggy Langdon (Banks, Mr. Little Jeans, Alex Vargas). "You Belong To Me" also serves as the first taste of CAT's forthcoming debut full-length, slated to drop sometime later this year.

Speaking on the track, Catherine says:

"I wrote this song while i was micro-dosing with mushrooms. When you micro-dose it's supposed to be imperceptible, kind of just lift your mood a little, but I'm really sensitive and I was having some visions. I went for a walk and it felt like the plants and moon were communicating with me. This song just came pouring into my head. It's about that beautiful, scary feeling of loving someone so much that you want to possess them and just allowing that madness to consume you for a bit."

"You Belong To Me" is available now on Amazon.

Premiere via Noisey.

Lyves - Like Water (EP)

London-based singer/songwriter and producer Francesca Bergami, aka Lyves has today released her eagerly-awaited debut EP titled Like Water. The four song collection includes her previously released singles, "No Love" and "Darkest Hour", as well as two exceptional new tracks, "The Weather" and "Free". Both "No Love" and "Darkest Hour" have already garnered the support of Pigeons and Planes, Indie Shuffle, Hillydilly, as well as many more tastemaking music blogs.

"It was a really deep time," says Francesca. "I wrote a lot of music up there, but it's not a proper studio, it’s bedroom produced." Using just a keyboard, her computer and a set of speakers to capture her sound – a vulnerable, yet positively uplifting accomplishment – Francesca stayed put until her EP was complete. ‘Darkest Hour’ is testament to Francesca’s enduring quality and determination as an artist. Representative of a transformative period in Francesca's life, the track itself is symbolic of resistance – never backing down, and never giving up.

"The whole EP is very personal, yet quite subconscious," she explains. "I really trust the words that arrive when I’m sat there at my keyboard the first time round. Sometimes it’s things that I don’t even realise that I’m going through until I read back the lyrics. I’ve always felt emotions very strongly, but never known where to place them. When I started writing songs, it felt like I could breathe again. I'm able to pour everything out."

With a voice that can be both emotive and empowering at once, Francesca sings of loss, adaption, and survival. "That's my aim, to be as honest and real as possible, then hopefully people will feel something from it." says Francesca. "When I worked in mental health I had a lot of people really open up to me, really let it all out – there something really beautiful and courageous about that. I really hope to offer something to people who might be going through a difficult time. I don’t want it to be about me. I want the music to speak for itself and possibly give something. That's what fuels my passion."
