ICYMI – Georgia Anne Muldrow released her new album – a modern soul classic in the making – titled “Overload” via Flying Lotus’s Brainfeeder record label. During her 12 year career she has earned the respect and admiration of listeners and peers alike via her incredible talent not only as a vocalist and songwriter spanning jazz, soul and hip-hop, but her long standing role as a producer and musician. Watch the video for the title track / single “Overload” above!
Since its inception, TENDER has specialized in walking that artful line between the personal and the universal. The British duo’s acclaimed debut, ‘Modern Addiction,’ charted the aftermath of a tumultuous breakup, earning rave reviews on both sides of the pond for its stark beauty and soul-baring candor. The LP followed a series of similarly celebrated singles and EPs that saw the duo rocket from an unassuming bedroom project to an online sensation seemingly overnight.
TENDER’s gripping new album, Fear of Falling Asleep is a collection of contradictions. It’s a record about isolation that fosters connection, a narrative of anxiety that offers reassurance, a chronicle of despair that promises hope. Inspired by the moments that come just before sleep, when silence descends and doubt and fear and desire take over, the album is an unflinchingly honest self-examination, a courageous reckoning with darkness and depression.
TENDER will head out on tour again in the Spring of 2019 + you can check out the video for their lead single “Closer Still” off the new album above!
