Alex Di Leo – “Better Place”

Late last year, Alex Di Leo released “Following Feelings“, an infectious track taken from his upcoming EP. The Florida native is back with a new song called “Better Place”. This one is just as good. About the track, Di Leo says, “I wrote/recorded ‘Better Place’ w/ my friend Phil Barnes just a couple years ago. As we recently sat in the studio and listened to some past works; We came across it and with chills running through, it hit both of us in a way it never had. After we each experienced similar ends to serious long lasting relationships over the last year, within 3 weeks of one another, it finally all made sense.

Beck Pete – “Romantic”

“Romantic” is the latest single from Beck Pete. It follows her song “Softie” and was released in the company of an amazing visual. “Romantic” is a beautiful and thoughtful piece that fully showcases the talented singer-songwriter that Beck is. She comments, “At the risk of sounding more hippie than I choose to admit I am, haha, I think we can all agree that there’s a very nuanced beauty and romance to this life, our part in it, and how one thing always leads to another. Even if we aren’t able to access joy as a result of it all of the time, we can at the very least acknowledge that the sparkly parts are ever-present.”
