Peach Kelli Pop - Crawford Mack - Plants and Animals

Peach Kelli Pop returns just a month after sharing 'Cut Me Off' with her latest single 'Stupid Girl' and it's another bright and breezy two minutes+ blast of vibrant natural pop. === Crawford Mack has impressed us already this year with a couple of magnificent songs and his brand new release 'A Love I Can't Live Up To' is another exquisite and beautiful piece. === Plants and Animals share 'Love that Boy' ahead of 'The Jungle', their fifth studio album set to be released on October 23rd. The new single is highly original laid back indie rocker that gently ebbs and flows.


Peach Kelli Pop - Stupid Girl.

Peach Kelli Pop is a musical project conceived of by songwriter Allie Hanlon. "Stupid Girl" is two minutes of pure guitar pop brilliance, but a self deprecating theme runs through the upbeat song.

"As a non-linear thinker and someone that always felt uncomfortable in school, I grew up thinking I was stupid. This is still ingrained in me to some extent." Hanlon says of the new single.

In 2009, in her hometown of Ottawa, Canada, Hanlon taught herself to play guitar and bass, arrange songs and record them. The band is now based in Southern California, after Hanlon relocated in 2013. 

Peach Kelli Pop has toured extensively both domestically and internationally, making frequent trips to Japan. With four full-length releases and a handful of singles under her belt, Peach Kelli Pop is back with her Lucky Star EP on October 7th via Lauren Records. The EP features 4 brand new songs, including a cover of "Sing And Pretty" by Tokyo's The Pat Pats.


Crawford Mack - A Love I Can't Live Up To.

Intimately involved in all aspects of his art; Glaswegian composer Crawford Mack is not just a musician and lyricist, but a video and art director; the whole focused on the perfect expression of his musical vision.

Crossing genres from his original jazz background, through to rock, electronic, and classical music; Crawford has concocted a sound that he hopes will illustrate the conviction of an individual confronting their internal struggles, wrestling them to the ground but all the while waving a white flag of surrender.

Following on from his beguiling track ‘Depends On Where You Stand’ and the dark, vulnerable, yet defiant ‘Firing Squad’, Crawford returns with his confessional new single ‘A Love I Can’t Live Up To’; the third track to be taken from the artists forthcoming debut album ‘Bread and Circuses’.

New offering ‘A Love I Can’t Live Up To’ is a ‘how-not-to’ guide to happiness, featuring realisations that came too late. With a knack for merging a razor-sharp hook with a harmonious foray of orchestral strings, this genre-bending offering see’s Crawford deliver one of his most impactful releases yet.

Discussing the inspiration behind the track, the artist tells us: "I was set a challenge by Sir Ray Davies to write a song where the bridge would hold the main meaning of the song, and to use musical materials I hadn't found a place for yet. The song draws on different moments in my life… it started out as a reflection of carrying feelings of inadequacy from some early relationships, and eventually evolved into a reflection of how they affected my actions getting older."


Plants and Animals - Love that Boy.

Plants and Animals are releasing a brand new single and video for “Love That Boy,” an intimate song created out of childhood memories and reflection about the constant evolution of family. The Jungle, their fifth studio album, is set to be released on October 23rd via Secret City Records.

Warren shares the inspiration behind the song: “It’s a song about my family, present and past, but it feels more like a meditation. I was upset, frustrated and feeling like no one knew me—the kid me, the me I still feel I am. And then writing the song chilled me out and put me right. It was a way to connect with my dead parents and with my new life as a dad, and to give everyone a proper hug.”

The music video, directed by Yann-Manuel Hernandez, was also inspired by Warren’s early life memories. The singer-songwriter continues: “I have a strong memory of being a kid in the backseat of my parent's car driving down the road at night in Halifax. 

The moon was bright and I watched it as it danced, interrupted by trees, like a strobe light or a stop-motion film. It followed us as we drove and I couldn’t figure out how it was doing that. Nothing else I could see out the window kept up. Why is the moon not moving? I hadn’t thought of that for a very long time, but somehow the song brought me back to that place.”
