Tiara & Andrew
The duo Tiara & Andrew consists of Tiara Mustafa – vocalist, keyboardist, ukulele, lyricist and Andrew Blackwell – bassist, guitarist, main conductor of the instrumental viaMPC one. The pair met back in High school 13 years ago. Andrew had a musical background. He played southern soul music with his father for big names like Roy C and Big G. Tiara however, only dreamt of being an artist since a young age. Every bone in her body wanted to perform. After performing at the school talent show, they decided that maybe they could do this. Their influences include Hozier, the Black Pumas, Angus and Julia Stone, TwentyOne Pilots, Iniko, Birdie, Coldplay, Aurora, the weekend, Jaden and Willow Smith. ‘How Real We?’ is the title track from their forthcoming EP and was inspired by conspiracy theories conversations Tiara has with her mother. “The idioligies that this world is a simulation at first was funny but became kind of a comfort as the world begun to burn in 2020,” they explain. “When faced with existential dread Tiara would look to her mother for answers to which her mom would reply, “we are all glitches in the matrix. Why attach real feeling to a fake world.” Listen below.

It leaves nothing to the imagination, emphasizing the physical and sensual aspects of the relationship it portrays. The song doesn’t shy away from its passionate intensity; instead, it embraces it fully, suggesting that the connection between the two individuals is so powerful that it might burn them up, much like the night itself as it transitions into sunrise. “Night” by The Faded is not just a song; it’s a testament to the unfiltered, passionate, and intense nature of human emotions.

Issin In Bloom
Issin in Bloom is a solo artist, singer and songwriter, from Oslo, Norway. She has always been drawn to music since she was little and would always sit next to the speaker on her parents’ cassette player and listen for hours. “I especially loved George Michael’s ‘Careless Whisper’,” she says. “The saxophone solo in that song had me completely mesmerized as a child.” She started writing poems in primary school and it gradually turned into writing lyrics and composing melodies. “Lyrics are very important to me and it is often the first thing I write when working on a song”, she says. She used to be the vocalist of a rock band and this is the first time she is making and releasing music on her own. Issin In Bloom has just released her debut single ‘The Gamekeeper’. “I wrote this song a few years ago when I felt a bit lost in life and there were obstacles I felt I could not overcome,” she says of the song. “It is a strange feeling when something as close as one’s own life suddenly feels foreign. It is like watching one’s own life from the outside and not recognizing it. The title of the song refers to being the guardian of one’s own life, something which can be a bit overwhelming to think about at times. The sound of the song is inspired by music from the 60s and 70s. This is music I have loved since I was very little. On the recording you can hear bongo drums, Rhodes piano, tambourine and several layers of vocals. I worked in the studio with the Norwegian musician and producer Henrik R. Fossum.” Listen below.
