Curl Up and Quit: Van Meter is on top form with Don’t Mind If I Don’t

With her much-anticipated fourth full-length record on the way, Van Meter reveals to us the hunger still brewing from her hiatus on the splendid new single, Don’t Mind If I Don’t.

Van Meter aka Jennifer Van Meter is a much-acclaimed Maryland-born indie singer-songwriter and proud Mom who has been in the game for over 20 years.

I’ve continued to simply persist over the years and stay true to what I want, and it’s incredible the tribe that now stands beside me. And this includes the support system that I now have that not only supports my music but also helps to take care of my children: dear friends, and neighbors. I really couldn’t do this without them. I sincerely thank them for contributing to the Van Meter music mania.” ~ Van Meter

After learning her trade thanks to her uncle’s old basement guitars and learning the D chord, Van Meter has dropped a song about persistence and staying true to those dreams, while never giving in to the shadows. Bravely conquering all fears and challenges, we find a song to wash all tears away with.

Don’t Mind If I Don’t from Maryland-born indie singer-songwriter Van Meter is a refusing-to-quit anthem for anyone who needed to hear powerful words. Sung so beautifully and with a memorable melody to lift up all weary souls, while warming our hearts and bringing us all hope that tomorrow shall be a better day.

Rap artist and producer Sea High has released his cinematically raw single, ‘Bad Habits’.

Sea High

Swathes of mental health-related singles have hit the airwaves during lockdown, but rapper and producer Sea High’s ode to despair, Bad Habits, is a fiery candid hit that makes most tracks sound superficial at best.

Bad Habits, in the best way possible, is a manic release that reflects the instability we feel and our tendency to rely on our vices to bring a sense of comfort and stability, even though indulging in them is an act of self-sabotage.

With his dizzying canter that accurately reflects the often-chaotic nature of our intense internal monologues as we try and make sense of the endlessly confusing world, the dramatically cinematic feel of the production and the meta power of the lyrics, Sea High can definitely be regarded as a triple-threat.

Bad Habits is due for official release on June 25th. Check out Sea High via Facebook.
