3AM IN A CROWDED ROOM: Nahom’s new track is the comedown song you need to hear


Toronto, ON – Yesterday Toronto artist Nahom dropped a new track on his SoundCloud titled “3AM IN A CROWDED ROOM – july 2015”.

“3AM IN A CROWDED ROOM” sets the stage for that cinematic end-of-the-night comedown where it’s 3 a.m. and you’re stuck alone inside of a crowded room of faded people and for some reason you can’t stop thinking about that one special person.

Backdropped by an instrumented alt-rock melody, the song plays out like it’s last call and the musicians on stage are wrapping up for the night and slowing things down as people get ready to go home.

The track comes accompanied by a little note of dedication to that special one person who inspired Nahom to write this: “to J. forever yours. ∞∞∞”It’s less on the PBR&B vibes we’re used to seeing from Nahom, and much more on the rock side of the spectrum: “Three in the morning/ Zoning/ And I see the ocean and your beautiful eyes/ If I put your head on my chest/ Tell you don’t ever leave me/ Would you believe me?”.

Nahom's new song is for all the girls who say they want

Salem’s new single is about finding your “Copilot” and locking it down


Ottawa, ON – On Aug. 29, Ottawa artist Salem released a new single titled “Copilot.” Produced by CardeBlanche, “Copilot” is a song about the female who’s changed Salem’s world by taking on the role of his equal and “Copilot”.

Too often we see relationships with an imbalance – one person has all the power or makes all the decisions. So when both people in a partnership can actually take initiative and navigate the world as equals, they become unstoppable. And Salem knows just how rare that is: “I’ve been up/ I’ve been down/ I’ve been all over the world/ I’ve yet to meet a girl that is just like you.”

The track is rooted by a light, bouncy instrumental with a distinctly tropical summer vibe. It’s a song to ride out those last few days of warm weather before autumn sets in. That, and it’ll gear you up for the onset of cuffing season.

Cameras: LocateEmilio & Jordan Solomon team up for this track about looking really lavish


Toronto, ON – Bay Area artist LocateEmilio (formerly known as Emilio Paredes) recently teamed up with Toronto’s own Jordan Solomon for this new track titled “Cameras.”

Produced by LocateEmilio, “Cameras” is about looking lavish and living that glam aesthetic. It’s about reaching a point where you’re at your peak confidence and don’t need anyone to validate you.

It’s a braggadocios track for when you’re really feeling yourself; feeling like you’re looking so good that you should be parading around with a hoard of photographers in tow: “I look so good/ Like I should be in front of cameras/ Snap, snap/ Lights, camera, action/ She said ‘daddy you so fabulous’/ I must agree/ What shorty said was way too accurate/ I’m way too glamourous.”
