MUNYA - If I'm Gone Tomorrow (It's Because of Aliens)

Born in the small town of Saguenay in Quebec, singer/songwriter and producer Josie Boivin, aka MUNYA has today unveiled her ethereal indie-pop gem called "If I'm Gone Tomorrow (It's Because of Aliens)", which also serves as the second single following "Hotel Delmano" to be taken from her forthcoming sophomore EP titled Delmano. Named after Hotel Delmano in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, the EP will be released on October 5th via Fat Possum's House Arrest Distribution imprint, Luminelle Recordings. Although MUNYA typically writes and sings in her native French language, "If I'm Gone Tomorrow" marks her first release ever that is completely sung in English.

Speaking on the track, MUNYA explains:

"When I was a kid I really loved the movie Independence Day. One night, years later I was home alone and I kept hearing really weird loud noises, not like a truck driving by, but a truck crashing into a building over and over. It freaked me out so bad I called my boyfriend and told him that if I'm gone tomorrow it's because of aliens... he wouldn't stop laughing at me. I was so mad he wouldn't take me seriously I didn't sleep that night and instead I wrote this breakup song."

Listen to both "If I'm Gone Tomorrow (It's Because of Aliens)" and "Hotel Delmano" below.

Illicit Ghost - Drunk And Alone

Introducing Brooklyn-based singer/songwriter, producer and violinist Illicit Ghost, who has today released her debut single called "Drunk And Alone" which marries Fiona Apple's lyrical strengths with Lana Del Rey's somber but sultry pop, making for a sad-drunk millennial anthem that’s both painfully relatable and stunningly raw.

Co-produced with Elliot Jacobson (Vérité, Allie X), "Drunk And Alone" was written "one morning in the middle of a blizzard," recalls Illicit Ghost. Adding, "The first random series of notes I played became the piano part you hear repeating throughout the song. I hit record with no idea of what I would sing about so I made the lyrics up as I went along. These are the words you hear in the song now."

Contrary to the literal meaning of the words, "Drunk and Alone" is about the search for inner harmony. Illicit Ghost explains:

"The phrase 'drunk and alone' is a metaphor for being able to sit alone with myself and process the pain that life will inevitably throw my way and to still find some sort of happiness and find the good in it. It’s about trying to find myself, and realizing that there’s a world out there and maybe even a place for me in it. It’s about feeling misunderstood but letting it go, continuing to move forward despite setbacks, and being aware of shortcomings and strengths, all while taking care of myself and finding peace with it all."

Listen to "Drunk And Alone" below.

"Drunk And Alone" is available now on iTunes.
