Purple Drip
In a serendipitous event, songwriter Zorana and music producer Milan found each other. While working on a song, Zorana shared a snippet on social media. Milan was instantly enamored with the promise of this new musical world and they reconnected. When Zorana’s effort in production didn’t result in the best possible version of the track, it was Milan’s expertise that gave the final version its ethereal quality. ‘Embrace all’ is meant to open the listener’s mind and invite them to exploe self-expression. The use of non-routine instruments and spectacular melodies take the listener into a new world of creativeness. The song was born from an intense period where Zorana was rethinking her life and needed to face past burdens she was still carrying. The creation of this song is a reflection of the process by which she pulled herself from the depression, anger, grief, and self-sabotage she was putting on herself. Becoming her own cheerleader, Zorana imagined her future self and what she would say if she saw her now. Her future self is happier and wiser and is able to send her positive affirmations to move on from what was pulling her back. Listen below.

Sydney-based pop artist Nikkita yet again digs deep intomental health themes while leaving listeners feeling oddly uplifted with her second single ‘In The Sky’. Following on from her debut ‘Looking Up’, this new track also undulates between slow vulnerability and unbridled euphoria, but ultimately feels more joyful. The verses are thoughtful and self aware, cresting in a chorus that rejoices in the freedom of disconnection from the world: “I’m better off in the sky” Nikkita assures us. The production also feels familiar, having been recorded at Grove Studios with co-producer Izaac Wilson (DZDeathrays, Tia Gostelow, Chillinit, Huskii) again lending his unique textures to the many layers of synth melodiesthat are fast becoming a signature of Nikkita’s music. But this time the song is decidedly more pop than EDM.”I wanted this track to be lighter and more blissful than ‘Looking Up’ because in many ways it’s the next chapter of the story,” Nikkita explains. “‘Looking Up’ was all about coming to terms with being alone, but ‘In The Sky’ finds the real joy in it. It’s also a celebration of those of us who always seem to have our head in the clouds.” Listen below.

Premanition is an independent Bangladeshi Canadian electro-pop singer, producer, writer, visual artist, voice over actor, and engineer. After releasing her acoustic debut EP Head Games and completing a rotation of local acoustic shows, Premanition rebranded herself entirely in 2020. For this new era, the storyteller draws inspiration from an eclectic collection of artists; ranging from the haunting vocals of Evanescence to the pop melodies of Lights. The Calgary-based artist is currently working on her most ambitious project yet, a full length electro-pop concept album with a corresponding novel about finding love, grief, and fighting for what you stand for. This mixed media story will unfold in a series of music videos, songs, poems and photographs over this year. The project is already sparking interest with her loyal fanbase. Following the release of her dreamy single ‘Heaven’, the electro-pop-artist is now revealing the second single off her upcoming debut album. Titled ‘Worthy’, the self-written single came from a place of exhaustion while trying to reach a level of perfection. With captivating synthesizers and haunting choruses, the new single invites the listener to keep going no matter what. “But are we worthy? Are we worthy? I’m not worthy, no. But I’ll keep trying to be.” “’Worthy’ was written when I was spiraling in my own negativity. I wondered why I was standing in my own way, because of fear or feeling that I didn’t deserve to do something greater – and that paralyzed me a lot of the time. I felt like I wasn’t allowed to do certain things because I didn’t deserve them yet and as I wrote this song, I realized that my own worth is assigned by me. So sometimes, perhaps I don’t feel as worthy, but I keep trying to be. That’s why this song is so close to my heart, it’s a reminder that I am not my feelings and I can keep going – despite the negativity,” she explains. Listen below.
