lost spaces Releases Follow-Up Focus Single Titled “DOMO (dancing on my own)”

Fresh off playing at Sunnydays Festival 2022 to supporting Ramengvrl on the Kuala Lumpur leg of her Asia Tour, and rocking out with the Midnight Fusic boys at their recent sold out showcase, lost spaces has properly announced his return and is back with a UK House inspired indie synth-pop banger titled “DOMO (dancing on my own)”. Following up his first single “daydream”, which achieved 130,000 streams in the first month of its release, “DOMO (dancing on my own)” is a fresh but familiar sound lost spaces fans have come to expect from the indie-pop artist.From working record winning producers like The Chief, Kuszanagi from Breaking Music, R&B songstress JAIE in his first record “no-vacancy” lost spaces has grown into a solid producer on his own, fully producing and writing the next few projects. With “DOMO (dancing on my own)” Sam Lopez; his actual given name, teams up with long time friend Kuszanagi to create this ‘dancey’ track which will get you tapping your feet and dancing in no time.DOMO (dancing on my own) was a song written from a place of losing the person that Sam saw at the time as the love of his life to circumstance and distance. “I really zoned in on the feeling of hurt and loss with this one & put it into a piece of art” explained Sam while talking about the song. From singing about his past lover with fondness and warmth in the verses and then progresses to the lines “this tragedy, our love the casualty, how do I ever let you go”, Sam takes you on a journey of joy, sadness and loneliness in the full 3 minutes of the song.The hook “I’m dancing on my own, chasing sunsets all alone” alludes to how Sam’s way to cope is to create a track that captures the best of the relationship but at the same time telling the story of despair and loss of that happiness & the loneliness that follows.The composition & production of the track was purposefully written upbeat to juxtapose the sad nature of the lyrics. “I got my mate Kuszanagi on board to add some lil’ cool layers, textures & harmonies that really elevated the song, especially in the chorus and bridge! That guy is a production wizard for sure.” explained Sam.“This track was definitely influenced by sounds from UK House, Garage & Synth Chill Wave this indie-pop centred track was built on electronic sounds with band fundamentals. I was listening to alot of Kaytranada, Disclosure and Tourist at the time while writing the song, I think it shows in the track with me putting a band- styled spin to that sound which emerged as my own. I’m very proud of that.” shared Sam about the production process of the song. The track emerges as a dancy sad bop with heartfelt emotions, making you wanna cry, dance and cry while having the song repeat on song again & again.DOMO (dancing on my own)LISTEN HEREFollow lost spacesFacebookInstagramSpotifyYouTubeTikTok

Raconteur, liesl-mae, unfurls an open-letter to depression – her latest single titled ‘Raincloud’

Singer-songwriter, liesl-mae, reflects on her struggles with mental health in a compelling new single, “Raincloud”. Addressing the cyclical nature of depression and its damning effects, the inspiring young artist hopes to engage in a discussion to dismantle the social stigmas surrounding mental health. The song is slated for release on 28 October, 2022.The song begins with a posed question: “When was the last time you felt happy?” On the surface, it is a seemingly benign enquiry. However, unable to respond, the question initiates an unexpected internal dialogue traversing the uniquely human blight of depression and anxiety. Artfully woven together with vivid metaphor and thoughtful lyricism, liesl-mae puts the feelings of hopelessness into words that creep malignantly into one’s mind – lying restlessly in wake. Her pristine vocals shine brightly through the track’s guitar driven melodies, ambient pads, and pulsating basslines. Gradually building up from an intimate, campfire-esque start to a grandiose conclusion; complete with elaborate orchestral arrangements and ebullient drumming. An old soul at heart, liesl-mae’s deceivingly simple songwriting has captivated the hearts and minds of her rapidly growing constituent of fans, desperate to seek out a voice that speaks to their own experiences.On writing about mental health, a topic the burgeoning songstress handles with the utmost care and consideration, liesl-mae approaches “Raincloud” as if it were an “open letter to depression” itself. Steering clear of accusatory language or being overly critical of herself, the song’s gentle and unassuming approach to storytelling allows it to explore some of life’s most difficult, and oftentimes pertinent, questions in a congenial manner. Despite how life may appear on the outside, the song is in essence about “feeling bad for feeling bad”.The inexplicable nature of depression causes a neurotic downward spiral into self-loathing – “wishing bad things upon myself to make up for feeling bad” explains liesl-mae. “For the first time, I channelled anger into my music… [It’s] an emotion I'm not used to outwardly expressing. Carefully crafting the sonics of the track with Mixed by Wong (engineer), “Jose Ong (producer) was really able to bring those feelings to life with the arrangement of this song. It was a very cathartic experience to be able to let it all out.”Having opened for the Here Comes July pre-listening party for Sinarku on the 27th of August, liesl-mae also made her festival debut at Good Vibes Weekender on 24 September, alongside the likes of Jackson Wang, Pink Sweat$, and beabadoobee, to name a few. Working towards the release of her first full-length EP in the former half of 2023, liesl-mae’s artistic sails have just begun to unfurl.*liesl-mae made her first debut festival performance at Good Vibes Weekender 2022 on 24 Sept as the opening act for the second-day festival!“Raincloud” has been released on 28 October, 2022 with a Lyric Video premiering exclusively on her YouTube channel on the same day at 8.00PM (MYT).Check out her music video here : ABOUT LIESL-MAEliesl-mae is a 24-year old singer-songwriter from Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. Handpicked by Sony Music Entertainment, liesl-mae is the first Malaysian artist to be signed to Sony’s Southeast Asian label OFFMUTE. liesl-mae made her first debut festival performance at Good Vibes Weekender on September 24th as the opening act for Day Two of the festival.Drawing inspiration from artists such as Lizzie Alpine, Dodie, Billie Eilish, Kodaline, and Bruno Major, liesl-mae’s artistry is defined by her distinct voice and vocal style which can best be described as calming and dreamy, with an almost lullaby-like quality to it, and paired with nuanced lyrics that display a marked simplicity and realness.Her past releases “Solace” (2021), “Headspace” (2022) and “The Trip” (2022) have amassed a total of over 1,140,000 streams on all digital streaming platforms.Outside of music, liesl-mae is also a mental health therapist and an advocate for mental health.

SINGAPOREAN SINGER-SONGWRITER NATHAN HARTONO TACKLES VULNERABILITY HEAD ON WITH CONFESSIONAL NEW SINGLE, “NIGHT AFTER NIGHT”​

Singaporean singer-songwriter Nathan Hartono releases new dream pop single “Night After Night,” available across all digital platforms worldwide. The song is a follow-up to the first single “Infinity”(released back on August 12, 2022) of Nathan Hartono’s new music release cycle. Says Nathan, “‘Night After Night’ continues the trend of vulnerability I’ve been trying to keep with this new wave of music. While ‘Infinity’ is cryptic and vague, ‘Night After Night’ drops all the pre-tense and is more confessional. The lyrics ‘Help isn’t on the way, ‘coz I’m hiding it well’ is kind of the inciting line that made me know what this song is going to be about, and how honest I wanted to be. At my worst, I find myself in the middle of sleepless nights, staring at the ceiling, contemplating nothing and everything at the same time. And this song is birthed from that feeling.” Working with Canadian producer Peach Luffe (real name Jong Lee) for the first time remotely over Zoom earlier this year, Nathan has intentionally shaped the direction of the track towards a lush and wistful ‘60s dream pop arrangement. “There is something about that dream pop, shoegaze-y sound that evokes a sense of meandering that I tend to feel in these dark times. I think because I wrote a lot of the music and lyrics at the same time, the words kind of informed the sound,” explains Nathan. “I listened to a lot of Peach Luffe’s songs before we met and happened to have the perfect draft song that would be a good jumping off point. I love his throwback sound and I have always wanted to do a song just like this, so it was some sort of kismet that brought us together.” Currently working on more new music, Nathan is on an exploratory sonic journey to develop his sound. Earlier this year in August, Nathan released the indie-pop single “Infinity” and self-directed the accompany music video that is now available on his official YouTube channel here. “Night After Night” is the second single from this new series and more releases can be expected in the coming months.Listen to "Night After Night” here 

Malaysia’s 2022 Satire “ADUHH!!!” Anthem Is Out & Already Making Waves

A collaboration between Def Jam Malaysia alongside Alternate Records presents Douglas Lim and SonaOne in their very first release for “ADUHH!!!”. The song reflects tongue in chic lyrics, catchy melody and a memorable hook that will leave an unintentional memory imprint.  The song stemmed from Douglas’s dream of always wanting to produce a hip-hop inspired song to add onto his ever-growing legacy plus portfolio. Having SonaOne who is not only one of Malaysia’s well-known rapper but is considered as the local hip-hop scene’s most respected producer to put his spin to the collaboration made the dream a reality. “It has always been my dream to record a hip hop song and so when SonaOne agreed to help me out with this, I was over the moon. I practiced and practiced really hard before recording but he made the process fun and exciting.” said Lim. The process of making the song was seamless for both artists when it came to putting the song together as both artists were able to put their best sides together and compliment the meaning behind the song.  “I wanted the song to be upbeat and have a play on being almost uplifting with the sound to match Douglas’s wordplay. Music and comedy have always been able to coexist with the likes of global names like Weird Al Yankovic, Jack Black and even locally from Jin Hackman so I knew this project would be a breeze to make.” said SonaOne. “ADUHH!!!” signifies a story about immense confidence one can emulate in their daily lives. “Think of it as a  guy who's as comfortable and confident in himself that he believes he's so handsome it hurts.” laughed Lim.Check out the music here :

SINGAPORE'S NATHAN HARTONO DROPS A BRAND NEW SINGLE

NATHAN HARTONO CONTINUES WITH HIS MOMENTUM OF RELEASES IN 2021 WITH BRAND NEW ENGLISH SINGLE “I’M FINE”The song is the Singaporean singer-songwriter’s first single taken from his forthcoming EP due out in late 2021.Singaporean singer-songwriter Nathan Hartono continues with his momentum of releases in 2021 with a brand new English single titled, “I’m Fine.” The track is released under Warner Music Singapore and is now available across all digital platforms worldwide today.Written by Nathan Hartono and produced by Singaporean producer MYRNE, “I’m Fine” takes a different twist from Nathan’s usual singer-songwriter style, venturing into the electronic sonic realm with ‘80s synth-wave styling.Says Nathan, “‘I’m Fine’ stems from me wanting to give a more succinct answer to the question ‘How Are You?’. In my head, every time someone asks me this question, I want this song to play for them instead. Because I think it’s such a loaded question, that requires so much context and understanding that just cannot be achieved in a short social exchange. And I think we got this question a lot in 2020. So, we just say ‘I’m Fine,” when there’s always so much more to that story.”Nathan also shares more on his first-time experience working with MYRNE and the ‘80s inspired synth-wave direction, “Something about the sounds and beats from that era brings me an indescribable comfort. I just missed the ‘80s but my ‘90s childhood were littered with its remnants. It reminds me of a much simpler time, when I could actually tell someone ‘I’m Fine’ and probably mean it.I also had a lot of fun watching Manfred work in the studio. It was very satisfying to be able to verbally describe a sound I want to achieve, and then have him essentially conjure it from nothing. It’s magical.”True to the song’s strong thematic backstory, Nathan also conceptualized the cover artwork as a visual representation of the struggles of keeping a positive outlook despite the dark internal conflict. The cover photo is taken by Singaporean photographer Jayden Tan, who will also take the directorial helm on the track’s accompanying music video. Due out in mid-March, the music video is set to be another visual delight with treatment based on the premises of the single artwork.Since the release of his last English single “Dig Deep” back in August 2020, Nathan continues to push his creative boundaries as he works on new music that will be released throughout 2021, culminating into an EP in late 2021.For those keen to catch the singer-songwriter in action, don’t forget to catch Nathan’s performance at the Disney+ Launch livestream coming to all major free-to-air TV channels and online at all Disney+ digital platforms on February 24, 8pm.

Gentle Bones and Benjamin Kheng’s transformation to multiple pop icons in whimsical ‘Better With You’ music video

2020 has been a roller coaster year filled with unprecedented challenges. Whilst it has ended, 2021 is likely to be upended by unforeseen events. With continuation of volatility, fear continues to grip the faint-hearted. Home-grown prolific singer-songwriters Gentle Bones and Benjamin Kheng resonate to the weak sentiments and aim to convey their warmest regards through a pop music emergency in their upcoming ‘Better With You’ music video.The power duo has released their first official collaboration single ‘Better With You’ on 18 December 2020, ending the tough year of pandemic with a virtual hug to the listeners through their latest music.Upon hearing the announcement of the news, thousands of fans enthusiastically conveyed their excitement through posted comments on the stars’ socials, much anticipation to their first official collaboration track together since their short youtube collaboration on Benjamin Kheng’s Spoken Word project took place way back in 2016. This latest release from the duo successfully grabbed the headlines of the regional media outlets and simultaneously achieved outstanding results on the digital platforms. These remarkable achievements include topping the KKBOX international pop chart one day after the official release, attaining more than 600K streams within a month of release on Spotify and emerging as top 20 alongside international acts such as BTS, BLACKPINK, Crowd Lu on RIAS (Recording Industry Association Singapore) regional streaming chart.Fans will get to see both stars transform into various iconic characters, ranging from classic movie characters to artistic icons of different eras in the upcoming music video, striking a familiar chord with the audience.Unleashing the acting spirits Gentle Bones and Benjamin to play various roles that you might see in your daily lives in latest music videoOnboard starship TSS Hyperion, Captain Bones (played by Gentle Bones) don on a space suit, is on a mission to rescue troubled people on a tiny planet called Earth “whose history is riddled with pain and strife”. The music video flashed an ensemble of troubled individuals sharing their woes at a group therapy session conducted by the therapist, played by Gentle Bones. Alluding to iconic pop culture characters, Benjamin Kheng plays various roles - a misunderstood monster (Frankie), a lonely pop-star (Michael) and a depressed artist (Ben Gogh). This can indirectly convey the parallels of Benjamin’s identity being a prominent figure in Singapore, with his pursuits in acting, music and hosting.Gentle Bones and team had worked closely with both local and international productions to produce the music video, from gathering their creative inputs to conceptualising the theme of the music video, to overseeing the overall artistic direction. The roles are specially selected to portray the image of having a fun and glamorous life on the surface, which also comes with its fair share of ridiculously high expectations from externalities and subsequent hidden struggles. Gentle Bones elaborated on his thoughts: “The lovely thing about this music video is that it can be interpreted in many different ways. How I see it is a traversing of parallel realities whilst similar storylines are taking place at the same time, the beauty of seeing light in darkness.”The stars also shared their behind-the-scenes thoughts about the music video. Gentle Bones shared, “My favourite role is Captain bones for sure! A great honour playing the role of the leader of an intergalactic space force travelling the universe and helping individuals of different species who need our help.”Benjamin added, “Ben Gogh was probably the most fun, being in that incredible set that the team built. Every inch was an impressionist painting, from my clothes rack, to my shoes. I was still getting touched up after 3 hours. The team spared no detail; it was a really incredible feat. I have none to complain about, although it is fun to peel off prosthetic after a 20hour shoot!”Watch the music video here :

JAMES BAY RELEASES NEW SINGLE “CHEW ON MY HEART”

Returning with his first original music of 2020, three-time GRAMMY® Award-nominated and BRIT Award-winning multiplatinum singer, songwriter, producer, and guitarist James Bay is back with a brand new single entitled “Chew On My Heart.” Listen to “Chew On My Heart” Here! In talking about the song, which is the first single to be released from his forthcoming album, Bay noted, “‘Chew On My Heart’ is a great example of releasing something positive about myself publicly for the first time,” he reveals. “It’s an outpouring of love, and that’s a huge theme across this new music. When I come home from tour, I burst through the door and throw my arms around my girl, and she’ll just say, ‘Okay, relax, cool’,” he laughs. “It’s cheesy, but I wrote it from that perspective. It’s the opposite of being guarded.”The official music video for the song was shot last month in Paris via safe social distancing and was directed by Philip Andelman (Taylor Swift, Lenny Kravitz, John Mayer). Check out the music video for “Chew On My Heart” Here. In 2019, Bay initially started to open up on the Oh My Messy Mind EP. Between the hit single “Peer Pressure” [feat Julia Michaels] and “Bad,” the project generated over 350 million global streams and counting. Inciting critical applause, Wonderland Magazine proclaimed, “The new EP combines delicate guitar riffs with rousing percussion and haunting melodies to evoke highly-charged emotions, while its lyrics explore the intricacies of relationships.” Additionally, He performed “Bad” on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert and attracted praise from Rolling Stone who claimed, “Bay gives the song his all, offering a raw, impassioned rendition of the song.”Throughout the recent quarantine and lockdown, he took to social media to offer free guitar lessons via Instagram Live on Wednesdays and Fridays. He has taught fan favorites such as "Let It Go," "Hold Back The River," "Us" and more.ABOUT JAMES BAY:For as much as James Bay upholds traditions of timeless songcraft, the UK singer, songwriter, guitarist, and producer also confidently challenges himself and popular music. He spikes a tried-and-true style with clever lyricism, honest confessions, and instrumental proficiency. On the heels of his platinum- certified 2015 debut Chaos And The Calm, he garnered GRAMMY® nods in the categories of “Best New Artist,” “Best Rock Album,” and “Best Rock Song” for the gold-selling single “Hold Back The River.” Meanwhile, “Let It Go” went triple-platinum. Nominated for dozens of awards, he took home two BRIT Awards, two Q Awards, and top honors at the Ivor Novello Awards and ECHO Awards. Tallying nearly 6 billion streams by 2020, he has performed on Saturday Night Live, The Ellen DeGeneres Show, Jimmy Kimmel LIVE!, and Late Night with Seth Meyers. He also notably dueted with icons such as Alicia Keys on The Voice and Mick Jagger while supporting The Rolling Stones at Twickenham Stadium in London. In addition to selling out shows on four continents, Epiphone honored him with his own Limited-Edition James Bay Signature “1966” guitar. Following the success of 2018’s Electric Light, he deconstructed his sound to its bare essentials on the Oh My Messy Mind EP a year later hitting nearly 350 million global streams. It yielded the hit “Peer Pressure” [feat. Julia Michaels], generating over 225 million global streams and received critical acclaim from Time, Rolling Stone, and Billboard. He spent the majority of 2019 opening for Ed Sheeran on his record-breaking stadium run. Now, embarks on the next leg of this journey led by “Chew On My Heart.”
