Bummer Days
by Liza Anne
(1 play) | (0 fans)

“I started this song when I was visiting my parents in 2018,” Liza Anne explains. “I was reading through old poems and journal entries and circling the drain of my own sorrow stories, which felt like a bit of a wake up call. I have all these ideas of what taking care of myself looks like, but I tend to get in my own way. 'Bummer Days' is me calling myself out. I am the only person who will take responsibility for my emotional and mental health.“

NO News On TV
by Noga Erez
(14 plays) | (0 fans)

Noga Erez is a Tel Aviv-based singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and producer. She said of "NO News on TV, " "This song was written during a period where I had more time than I've had in a decade. I was able to sit down and work my ass off on new music without any emails disturbing the silence. No notifications, nothing. I wanted to write a song that talked about that. I felt a deep need to imagine what it would be like to live in a world with no politics, money, grit, racism or violence.": https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JdJMwubahVo
