I Could Be That Man is the the darkest corners of Terry Blue’s upcoming album Only To Be There. Based on Pusterla’s experience as a nurse-help in hospital, Only To Be There is an intimate  autobiographical album. Terry Blue’s songs are postcards, remnants of life-experience, confessions. And pretty often apologies.”


Boa vs Cobra | Black Sheep

HOME BASE: Belgium.
GENRE: Synth-Pop.
THE BIO & PRESS RELEASE: “We are Boa vs Cobra, a new indie Belgo-Canadian music duet. When I, Sandy Fee (vocals-lyrics-composition), put a bass guitar in the hands of JP King (bass guitar-percussions-lyrics-composition) two years ago, I heard sounds that I had never ever heard before from any other bass guitar player. Excited & thrilled, we went directly in studio with no plans but record “one hit per day,” as I like to laugh about it. Boa vs Cobra was born! We had so much fun creating our first album, and we hope this magical music potion made of pure spontaneity, rough and profound bass, vocal and writing performance will lead you to just love it as much as we do. Black Sheep is a new wave hymn propelled by rhythm and blues verses with a touch of craziness.”


Someone Very Smooth | Les Serv

HOME BASE: Canada.
GENRE: Hip-Hop.
THE TRANSLATED BIO & PRESS RELEASE: “Independent Artist from Montreal. This COVID-19 pandemic we are facing is harmful and it is a fact.

Subrain | My Girl

HOME BASE: France.
GENRE: Synth-Pop.

With their former bands, they performed in several Parisian clubs and French festivals. The band really found its true identity and artistic direction under the name of We Art The People.”


Aerds | Hymne

HOME BASE: France.
GENRE: Electronica.
THE BIO & PRESS RELEASE:Aerds is an electronic music project. The current style of the project is very versatile but remains very French and mainstream with the aim of touching a maximum of possible audiences without creating a barrier. The character of Aerds is for the moment very sober and clean without putting value on the musician but more on the creations, hence the need for structure to finance the different tracks in order to show a “face” to each track.”


Chapell | Ride

HOME BASE: United States.
GENRE: Folk-Pop.
THE BIO & PRESS RELEASE: “This is a song about breaking free.”


Plaie | Et Même Après le Soleil

HOME BASE: France.
GENRE: Rock.
THE TRANSLATED BIO & PRESS RELEASE: “Partitioned between the four white walls of his room. Wound. Man of 1m94 and 71 kg, too sensitive. He is looking for a way to exist to represent himself. It is prone to micro-depressions. An entry-level bass, a guitar with strings eaten away by the inability to create, a colorless drum machine, a tasteless microphone to record a bruised voice. This is what he tries to heal his open wounds with. Between his love letters never sent and his empty bottles of alcohol he languishes in his doubts and fears. Plaie is a mirror for each person who one day felt alone, incapable of creating, of dreaming and having lost the taste for all willpower. Plaie is a love letter for all these people.”


Plumes | Mother Sings Her

HOME BASE: Canada.
GENRE: Indie-Pop.
THE BIO & PRESS RELEASE: “Plumes is an indie pop / classical crossover project centred around Canadian singer songwriter Veronica Charnley. Originally from Montréal, now based in Paris, Plumes has released two critically acclaimed albums and will be releasing a third album entitled Oh Orwell on Sept. 14. Blending classical music techniques with pop sensibility and using original texts as well as setting poems by poets such as Emily Dickinson, Goethe and Marina Tsvetaeva to music, Plumes is romantic and adventurous, bridging continents et d’univers divers. “This song was inspired by a French lullaby my mother sang to me as an infant and is both emotional and catchy, with a touch of ’80s nostalgia.”


Mariatti | Patches

HOME BASE: Italy.
GENRE: Electronica.
THE BIO & PRESS RELEASE: “From the age of 15 till 21, Mariatti released many records under the name of Andrea Dub. He was lucky enough to get booked in different countries. After high school his passion went deeper: He degreed at Sae Institute of Milan in audio production to push the boundaries of his technical limits. Three years ago he came back to his hometown and he built a studio to work on music everyday. This track is the final one of a three-week cycle: After Other Vibes and Variable Speed Of Life, Patches is the most melodic and evolving arrangement I went through. The process of this song came from only one synthesizer: Korg ms-20; every single sound you hear is made by that astonishing machine.”


Regulus Red | Wanna See You Naked

HOME BASE: United Kingdom.
GENRE: Synth-Pop.
THE BIO & PRESS RELEASE: “International, queer, electropop: Regulus Red is the new unabashedly authentic kid on the block. A reckless daydreamer for whom music and fashion are a statement, a means of liberation from a frightened society. Of an Italian-Welsh descent, his heritage would be incomplete without mentioning the likes of Lorde, Lady Gaga, Stromae, Mika, P!nk and Robyn — just a few of the artists who inspire Red’s music with their fearless sense of self and powerful lyrics. “I’m just a kid with too many feelings and music was always my friend,” he says. His debut EP is coming out at the beginning of September, and with Future Humans as the main producer, you better buckle up. “Inspiration does exist. But it must find you working. Wanna See You Naked is a feline story of a predator dancing with its prey. I wrote it for those in need of encouraging to speak up about any secret desires, about their concealed fantasies, about their spicy kinks that had been hiding away out of fear.”


Myyora | After Eight

HOME BASE: France.
GENRE: Jazz-Pop.
THE BIO & PRESS RELEASE: “Passion for creation and Music.”
