Felicity - Pilot with a Fear of Heights

Australian-born, Cape Town-raised and now New York City-based singer/songwriter Felicity has today released her explosive debut single called "Pilot with a Fear of Heights", which was produced by Grammy award winner Brian Kierulf (Lady Gaga, Britney Spears).
Written from a "timid place," the turbulence-inspired and anthemic-like track tackles the complex fear of destiny as it relates to love. Over soaring, gospel-tinged back-up vocals and delicate piano chords, the singer's raspy-sweet soprano soars to begin the seemingly mournful cut with "I'm treading water, like a preacher's daughter." But as soon the sucker punch of a hook rushes in, it's clear the pop upstart's debut is gunning for song of the summer status.

"'Pilot with a Fear of Heights' is a song I wrote from a timid place. I wanted so badly not to want this person but ultimately being with him was my destiny," says Felicity. "That's exactly what this song is about; a fear of destiny, a pilot whose job is to literally be in the sky, navigating a plane but is ultimately terrified of the largest component of the act (the height). Conceptually I came up with the idea while actually on a plane myself. I brought the idea into the studio the next day and the song basically wrote itself. Sonically I wanted it to be turbulent, which is why the song is slow until the first chorus hits, like a jolt of unexpected turbulence in your ears, then I got the lyrics to match and from there the song felt complete."

Listen to "Pilot With A Fear Of Heights" below.



"Pilot With A Fear Of Heights" is available now on iTunes.

Premiere via Billboard.

THRILL YOU KILL YOU - Never Even Really

Introducing THRILL YOU KILL YOU, the new indie/post-punk/electronica project fronted by Los Angeles-based DJ/producer Fei-Fei. Today, THRILL YOU KILL YOU has shared her debut single called "Never Even Really", which showcases an evolution of her sound and reveals a more vulnerable and rebellious side. A testament to the strength of one woman, the entire project is written, produced and recorded solely by Fei-Fei herself.

"I used to shut out the softer, emotional side of myself. I spent most of my life putting up walls, developing thick skin. This is the first time I've been brave enough to just be me," she explains. "I truly hope one day I will inspire other girls and women to believe in themselves and fucking go for it. I want more visibility, more female producers, engineers, DIY role models for the next generation."

Fighting her demons became a sort of therapy and simultaneously birthed the most organic and potent sounds. TYKY is the tumultuous journey of falling in love, falling out of love, and saying fuck you.

Listen to "Never Even Really" below and expect a lot more new music from THRILL YOU KILL YOU in the coming months as she is currently preparing for the release of her self-titled debut EP, which is slated to drop sometime later this year.




"Never Even Really" is available now on iTunes.

Joy Autumn - Go

Originally from Olympia, Washington but now currently based in Los Angeles, singer/songwriter Joy Autumn has today unveiled her latest offering called "Go", which follows her previous single "Searching For You" and also serves as another taste of her upcoming Midnight EP, an atmospheric indie-pop record that exposes the dark side of making it as an artist in Hollywood. "Go" is Joy Autumn at her most vulnerable. The sparse nature of the song allows room for its listener to breathe into Autumn's pain, intimately feeling her internal struggle between loving someone so deeply and yet desperately needing to tell them to go. With lush strings and cinematic harmonies, Joy's raw and breathtaking vocals float from first verse until the song's final second, transporting listeners back to that heartbreakingly necessary moment of convincing yourself that you can and will leave.

Speaking on the track, Joy explains:

"The hardest thing you can possibly do is walk away from someone that you viscerally love and feel is a part of you. In that moment, I realized that I had to pick my own well-being, even though the distorted reality is that I perhaps loved this person even more than I did myself."

Listen to "Go" below.



Premiere via The 405.
