Atta Boy returns with their sophomore album Big Heart Manners (June 26th, 2020), a triumphant example of what the music industry has been missing. After seeing over 15 million Spotify spins of their first album Out Of Sorts, the new album marks a welcome return for expectant fans and critics alike.
The band is known for taking a refined yet unorthodox approach to songwriting, showcasing Eden Brolin's personal and intricate storytelling alongside tasteful, often understated instrumentation. Big Heart Manners blends the best of alt-country, indie and folk to great effect - be sure to check out the standout tracks "Shade", "Halfway" and "Night".
Canadian alt-pop empress Adaline's new album Dear Illusion, (April 24th, 2020), marks the fourth release for the captivating songwriter. Largely produced by noteworthy German producer Maximilian Jaeger (Diplo, Big Sean), and inspired by the landscape of California and its isolation, there is a noted shift from the moody sound of her previous work. Breezy pop hooks are infused with stories of disillusionment, addiction and a journey into a revelatory love, and darker themes are paired with a sonic lightness that is ethereal and bright.
Adaline's emotive pop tracks have seen numerous TV and film placements, including Grey's Anatomy, 90210, Workin' Moms, Wynonna Earp, and The Samaritan (starring Samuel L. Jackson). She's also enjoyed millions of spins across platforms, with impressive streaming stats, critical praise and a devoted fan base.
Hailaker's new album Holding (April 24th, 2020), sees the UK band expand and perfect their sound, first explored on their 2019 self-titled debut album. As with Novo Amor, Hailaker's work is vulnerable and emotive, but on a more intimate & subdued level. At the core of their music is intricate songwriting with stirring harmonies and delicate instrumentation, punctuated by bursts of emotion that are at once restrained and grandiose.
The group has seen millions of streams on Spotify, with new songs like "Wild" and "Caffeine Rivers" performing well alongside standouts from 2019 including "Famous" (vocals by Novo Amor's Ali Lacey).
