Thomas Day – “MASOCHIST”

The latest release from Nashville pop artist Thomas Day is a single called “MASOCHIST”. With its soaring chorus, this song is totally electrifying. From writing to delivery and production, the work on this track is excellent. “‘MASOCHIST’ is about a girl who I met and fell head over heels in love with, so fast and so hard that I didn’t care how badly I could get hurt. I wrote this song with my two friends Steve Rusch and Quinn Lewis. We were talking about the subtle complexities in relationships, and this song poured out. It’s about not being afraid to be hurt. Actually, it’s about wanting to be hurt,” says Thomas. The Logan Meis-directed music video succeeds in fully capturing the pain in the artist’s lyrics.

Eiza Murphy – “Conman”

Los Angeles-based Irish singer-songwriter Eiza Murphy has a new song which she called “Conman”. The vulnerable electro pop song was written by Eiza and produced by her sister Lenii. “Conman” is about being deceived by someone who then becomes emotionally unavailable. Not a stranger to such emotionally gripping compositions, Eiza delivers the song with her heart of her sleeves. “Conman” was released independently.

Sadye – “Biblical”

Sadye introduced herself last week with her debut single, “Biblical”. The alt-pop track was released via vnclm_ / Atlantic Records. “Biblical” is catchy yet dark, showing Sadye’s refreshing take on the alt-pop genre. Lyrically, it was inspired by her intense struggle with cancer, discovering self-worth and experience with toxic relationships. She explains that the song is about, “going back to someone you know is bad for you over and over again. Like, yes, I’m caught in this person’s web, but maybe I know exactly what I’m doing.
