“The name may sound like any other popular boy band, but in their latest EP Pseudoscience, The Limited prove to the musical world that the pop genre label does not have to limit musicality.” (James Martin – wordpress.com)

“The Limited are a band with incredible musicality for their early stages as a pop band. My only hopes for this band are that their would be further strides towards consolidating their unique vibe, and that they would continue to not conform to the pretenses of the popular music stereotype.” (wordpress.com)

TS Graye – MY2

TS Graye

MY2‘ – or Murder You 2 – is a remarkable introduction to an incredibly special new artist: TS Graye. At just seventeen years old, the Bristol singer-songwriter packs an almighty punch with her first release; powerful, smoky vocals glide atop smooth beats and neat production touches, with dark yet humorous lyricism inspired by her love of horror movies (fact: if she wasn’t a musician, she’d be pursuing a career as a makeup artist for horror shows).
Produced by Louis Mattrs, who she met online, ‘MY2’ is the first track from an EP due in October. In TS Graye’s words, “I wrote MY2 after finding out that someone I loved had broken my trust. It reflects the different and conflicting emotions I felt in the aftermath of that situation. At first, I play it off and try to fool myself that I’m cool with what has happened, but, in reality, I’m angry and hurting, hence the aggressive switch in the lyrics and production. I think you have to acknowledge and work through those feelings to accept the shit that happens and leave it in the past.
Growing up in the West Country, TS Graye’s influences never strayed far from home; trip hop and the sounds of neighbouring Bristol (e.g. Massive AttackTrickyPortishead) play out heavily in her music, but true to her generation she discovered most of the music she loves online (she references Lana Del ReyBanksPost Malone and Drake and her sound invokes likeness to greats RihannaSZAAlicia Keys and Jorja Smith). Self-taught, TS Graye learned how to produce and play piano from her bedroom and has been writing two songs a week since she was thirteen.
Despite spanning genres, exploring multiple perspectives, and experimenting with different vocal styles, ‘MY2′ works; it is natural, smooth and believable, showcasing a sophistication that belies her age. TS Graye’s intricate lyricism must also not be overlooked. With this single, she engages wordplay and double entendre – the line “guess I have to murder you 2” has multiple meanings, as does “f*ck with your beauty“.
Living in a small town encouraged TS Graye to explore the bounds of her creativity, and nowadays her passions outside of music include experimenting with make-up and working on a zine, which she has put into print ready to distribute alongside the release of her first pieces of original material.
The debut single ‘MY2‘ (“This ain’t just a heartbreak, this ain’t just a heartache…”) will be closely followed by next release ‘Rich Or Poor’ (“I don’t care about the past no more, just tell me that you love me…”). Sincere, evocative, relevant and inspired: TS Graye is an artist full of promise.

Tamtam – Blue

Tamtam

Singer songwriter Tamtam grew up in Saudi Arabia from her birth until she was 13 years old. Throughout her teenage years, she was relocated to California for school because her parents believed seeing the world through a different lens was important. Having discovered her love of singing at the age of 11, Tamtam took the opportunity to move and channeled all her learning experience into her biggest venture, music.

She got her start in music on YouTube with her first ever single “Little Girl.” At the advice of friends and family, she blurred out the video so you couldn’t see her face for fear of backlash from people who knew her in Saudi. This inspired her second single “Gender Game.” The EP Gender Game was released in October 2014, and it wasn’t long before the title single gained recognition. Contacted by Geena Davis to support at three of her non-profit events, along with An Upworthy article with over 80k shares from March 2015, it was clear Tamtam had made her first big mark on her path in the music industry.

From there, Tamtam was able to truly launch herself into the world of music. She released her single “We’ve Got Wings” in late 2015 to help promote a Saudi breast cancer awareness organization founded by Princess Reema bint Bandar, and has been promoting it ever since.

Tamtam uses her message of love and acceptance to promote gender equality along with other humanitarian and egalitarian efforts all over the world, especially in her home country of Saudi Arabia where movement towards gender equality is beginning to take off. She is dedicated to using her music to promote these positive messages to young women and men around the world while sharing her own experiences through her art.

“My new single, “Blue” is about heartbreak and feeling haunted at the end of a dissolved romance, while the other person seems so cool. I drew on nature’s everchanging blues (water, the sky) for inspiration – their vastness, unpredictability, and power to set a melancholy tone”.

“Thank you Substream for the kind premiere, and thank you for listening”.

Naah – Touch

Naah

After her debut-single with over 1M streams and the current single Pathetic released with Ninajirachi (premiered on Tripple J and supported by JAY-Z’s mgmt), Naah today is back with her new smashing single Touch !

Naah is one of the latest shooting stars over the
Stockholm-sky and is definitely one to keep your eye on.
With roots in indie-pop, the 21 year old independent songwriter and
artist now release her second single Sippin, which is
something you haven’t heard in pop-music before. She takes
her experience from band-jamming and translates it to
electronic-music and the result gets stunning!
With an ironic tone to riches, new-thinking groovy beats and
playful melodies, she puts her own stamp on music and
delivers a single that can be measured with the world stars.
It’s not electro. It’s not R&B. It’s not pop.
– It’s Naah!

“Sippin’ is the second single from Stockholm based songwriter NAAH.  It’s an effervescent electronic alt-pop number with rhythmic synth-work, crisp percussion and outstanding melody writing. It is clear that she is talented beyond her years, at only 21 she is creating well crafted synth-pop with clear appeal – her debut single ‘Worth It’ picked up some serious love across the blogosphere and shot its way to ~500,000 streams on Spotify. This new one is sure to find its way into your Spotify playlists and should see the young talent emerge as a serious contender this year”. ‘Purple Melon
