"Driving sounds for late nights; or maybe you're on a road somewhere in the Western Hemisphere and a shiny new car drives past you too fast, like something out of a glossy magazine, and before you know it, it's gone."

Poised as a generational titan, anointed in an ethereal amalgamation of R&B and jazz, with traces of reggae, Pip Millett is every bit the artist of those who came before her, and demonstrated glimmers of her potential across singles such as “Drunk & Alone” and her formalised debut single “Make Me Cry” — the latter of which served as her inaugural, 2019 COLORS performance.
Charlotte Dos Santos exists in a lane all her own. As a fiercely independent producer, singer, composer and arranger, she takes full ownership over her art, imbuing it with feather-light vocals one moment and a rumbling piano line the next. Her warm, emotive and jazz-inflected songwriting weaves seamlessly between themes of identity, womanhood and human connection.
KEG are a seven piece. Albert (vocals), Joel (bass) & Will (synth) grew up together around the seaside Yorkshire town of Bridlington; and like many artists growing up in removed quarters of the country, they shared a yearning to leave. Spreading to different parts of the country after leaving school, they found their bandmates in their respective cities and found one another once again on the southern shores of Brighton.
Ryan Karazija is an artist-traveler. However, his journey through life and music is not just about himself. It is also for the listeners who find in Low Roar's music the path they want to follow, or a place that they have been looking for a long time.
On their earthy, jubilant new album, the Columbus, Ohio, band Caamp examine those in-between days that make up a life—not the best or most eventful days, certainly not the worst or most tragic, but those full of small pleasures and forgotten disappointments.
We are so excited to bring you into our Sacred Ground world again. To gather, to dance, to be in play, and in communion and deepening with one another. We have so much amazing music, workshops, gathering spaces, nature, and ourselves to explore.
Toro y Moi’s seventh studio album, MAHAL, is the boldest and most fascinating journey yet from musical mastermind Chaz Bear. The record spans genre and sound—encompassing the shaggy psychedelic rock of the 1960s and ‘70s, and the airy sounds of 1990s mod-post-rock—taking listeners on an auditory expedition, as if they’re riding in the back of Bear’s Filipino jeepney that adorns the album’s cover.
Kovacs is a multi-talented diamond in the rough. Starting her career in music predominantly, she’s extended her talents into art, fashion and culture.
If the album’s first half largely mirrors Fender’s own story, its second deals with the toll life and your own feelings of self worth can take. There’s a gentle feeling of joy within the War On Drugs-like Mantra as it speaks of the importance of learning to love and accept yourself, while the explosive, widescreen sweep of Paradigms is a powerful reminder that the toxicity than can unfairly extinguish lives is sadly still with us. The empathy within is palatable as Fender reaches out a hand, repeating the lyric “no one should feel like this”.
