TAYLOR B-W – Tears Of Coal
Taylor B-W is a modern-day nostalgic Queen offering unabashed, phat pop/RnB songs with ‘lyricism that is personal, relevant, and covering a complete range of emotion.’
She has returned with another robust and soulful tune to add to her ever-growing collection, hot on the heels of her Reggaeton-infused, electro-pop single, ‘In Ur Net.’
‘Tears Of Coal,’ known for her cheerful and joyful 90’s pop-inspired tracks, flips the musical script to depict a different, darker image. ‘Tears Of Coal,’ a dynamic perspective on one’s cautious attitude while exploring new love, embraces a folk-electronica soundtrack evocative of musicians like Jarryd James and Vera Blue, with a hint to 90s composers Bjork and Thom Yorke.
The track is backed by an exciting music video created by Moose Visuals’ Ben Montague, who also directed B-‘Nunchucks’ W’s in 2021. ‘Tears Of Coal’ captures the weary confusion of handling a developing relationship nicely.
B-W has once again merged her passionate lyrics inside an electro-pop environment with the aid of producer Liam Quinn, who has previously worked with Peach PRC, Jessica Mauboy, and Lime Cordiale, to create a single that is contemplative and intimate yet incredibly accessible. The see-saw difference in the music sends the listener on an emotional rollercoaster.
LUKX – Get Shit Done
Lukx is the work of a Belgian and Swedish father and son production duo based in Belgium, led by singer-songwriter Lucas Malmport and composer and producer Nils Malmport.
Their music, combining French and English lyrics, falls between hip-hop, rap, and pop. A calm catchy mood comes straight from a father and son cooperation.
‘Get Shit Done,’ Lukx’s new highly infectious house, dance, and pop single are out. Lukx’s project is the outcome of a father and son production team working from their modest home studio in Belgium.
Recorded in their small home studio in Belgium. For this song, they collaborated with 3 of Lukx friends involved in the composition, and then it was recorded, mixed, and mastered by Nils Malmport.
‘Get Shit Done’ is about how people don’t finish things in life and save a lot of stuff for later since life is too short.
PETE MILLER – A Light Out There
Pete Miller was born and raised in Connecticut, just 45 minutes from New York City. But the vast metropolis couldn’t entice Pete. Instead, he worked as a landscaper and attended school part-time.

Pete works at the blue-collar occupations he sings about in his “everyman songs” while pursuing his music ambition, working in warehouses, lumber yards, construction, and studying mechanics part-time.

Luke’s work demonstrates the culmination of musical drawings combined with his sensibility.
“Scream,” Luke Hansen’s latest single release, takes the listener on a captivating trip through a crowded and bright wide field, building with cinematic music and heartbreaking lyrics to a posture that makes an impression.
Beautifully complimenting his debut album ‘The Air is Thin,’ which is set to be published in February 2023, ‘Scream’ is about being stripped of one’s identity and seeking consolation in frequently misunderstood organizations.
Usually, when he was having difficulty creating the opening chords, he found himself doodling on scraps of loose paper to attempt to remember the chords and arpeggiations that came to mind. Luke recorded the song and album in Sydney’s Studios 301 with his 5-piece backup band.
This song represents the maturation and development of an observant and creative artist who is continuing his path in improving his craft. Luke’s musical savvy comes through as he employs his sweet vocals and killer guitars.
