[Music Video] FRND – Be Happy

What we’re used to from FRND is the release of a great single. With his fourth original release however, it’s not just a great song we’re getting, but a sweet animated music video to go along with it. The project is “Be Happy” and that’s just how we’re feeling for this one.

Now, “Be Happy” isn’t as straightforward as you may think. The lyrics don’t paint a simple scenario, rather one that has multiple layers underneath the general claim (and name) of the song. It represents a matured moment in life, one that isn’t so easy to come to with regard to relationships – or as the song describes, past relationships. Yet again FRND sways us with a magical track and the video takes all the emotions to the next level. It’s a smash hit and it’s something your library needs. Add it through iTunes today.

[Electronic] HXV – Separation EP

Atlanta’s HXV is making some big moves. With his EP, Separation, HXV sets the stage for the rest of his career. It’s a defining moment, one that is being marked with not just a simple single, but three packed into a meaningful project that takes things in a new direction. Each song has been released as a free download, in exchange for a Spotify follow which is nothing compared to what you get in return.

This EP marks the first steps in a longer story I’m trying to tell. My goal is to define what HXV is and sounds like once and for all. I went back and pulled from my inspirations and been writing music that’s electronic in nature and rooted in trap elements but has textures of shoegaze, metal, and dark wave. This EP is about leaving what’s familiar and pushing off into the unknown, embracing the fear and the discomfort of trying new things.”

The EP starts out with “Where Do We Go From Here,” a dark, mystifying record that embodies the exact emotions HXV had before making the changes that he did. Next comes “Into Oblivion,” a sonic black hole that you can’t escape, but luckily, you don’t want to. It’s a one of a kind song that may be our favorite on the EP, however “Crossing The Threshold” rivals it. The last single takes things a different direction, showcasing a more calm sound that closes the Separation out perfectly.

Those moments, those steps that you take into the unknown where you are finding yourself and where you fit into the world that’s the art. The music is the artifact, the ashes of the art itself. The art is the process. When all this is done and all the elements are out this will become the definitive guide for HXV.

Ken Loi
Hollow (feat. Liv Miraldi)

Arkade Records had a hot one come out this month from Oakland California’s Ken Loi. His single “Hollow” features the lovely Liv Miraldi whose performance will hook you in tight. Together these two made a future-filled jam that we can’t get out of our heads.

Ken Loi’s masterful blending of genres makes this song what it is. By himself it would be great track, but with the addition of Liv Miraldi this song goes from great to stupendous. It feels familiar, yet the style is fresh to the ears. Arkade has always put out great records, but this one is one of our favorites from both their camp and Ken’s. If you’d like a copy of “Hollow” you can swoop it from iTunes today.
