This song was inspired by the California wildfires of 2020. From Rhye's FB Page: "The spirit of the song is about overcoming obstacles and the need to come up with positive solutions together. It’s a fun song to remind us to dance our way through problems so as not to be overcome by them." New album out in January! www.rhyemusic.com

Los Angeles born and raised artist TOKiMONSTA is closing out 2020 with yet another version of her entire original album, this time titled Oasis Nocturno (Instrumentals). Released December 4th via Young Arts Records, the project takes all 12 tracks from Oasis Nocturno and strips them down to just their dreamy electronic compositions. The resulting versions add a new dimension to their aurally complex soundscapes, emphasizing the raw, minimalistic beauty made possible purely by instruments and synthesizers. https://edm.com/music-releases/tokimonsta-releases-oasis-nocturno-instrumentals-new-music-video Get the Latest Release here: https://tokimonsta.com/

Scratchcard Lanyard
by Dry Cleaning
(47 plays) | (1 fan)

London band Dry Cleaning performed "Scratchcard Lanyard" and other songs in our studio last March just before the lockdown began.: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rLppqLxALfQ --- "Do everything and feel nothing...." Here's what the band has to say about the song and its video: "In the search for your true calling in life, it’s easy to try so many things that you end up confused. It can lead to an enormous build-up of frustration. You may fantasise about exacting revenge upon your real or imagined enemies. Ephemeral things and small-scale escapist experiences can provide some relief!": https://youtu.be/6PuqlOTyJt0
