Mid Day Music Blast – LIEZA “Yellow Roses”

LIEZA’s new single, Yellow Roses, is exactly what you want for that summertime jams playlist you have on Spotify. It starts out as a lot of songs do, with LIEZA catching a partner cheating on her, but it puts a slight twist on that; the partner says the name of the third party while in bed with LIEZA.

The song then goes into how LIEZA won’t take any shit, and they both need to move on. I love the sentiment here. LIEZA takes the power away from her (ex)partner by standing steadfast in her resolve to end things while they beg for forgiveness and promise it won’t happen again.

You’ve got love in your eyes
and I’ve got karma in mine
cause every promise was broken
you were drunk
and she was high
it meant nothing,
it felt fine,
but is it still fine when we’re broken

Femke, friend of the blog (really, we’ve just posted a song of hers before. we want to be her friend though), worked on this song with LIEZA, and it only took them 45 minutes to write it. With ethereal dream pop composition and a pure and pitch perfect voice, LIEZA is already turning heads even though she’s new to the pop scene. She inked a deal with Whizbang earlier this year, so 2018 is shaping up to be a pretty great year for the dream(y) pop artist.

I don’t want to be that girl, coming second to your second girl.

The Morning Commute: Serve Somebody

We have gotten to a point where we have so many amazing submissions to the blog and show that we are creating new things to share them. The Morning Commute is the newest addition to the website, and Duets and Stuff fully embody what we are trying to do with this addition. We want to give you something fun, upbeat, and energetic, or at the very least, something that makes you feel happy.

From the opening drums, this song puts you in the right frame of mind to destroy your day… by serving somebody. Greta has a voice that immediately makes you feel warm and attentive, and backed by the staccato (what sounds like some sort of) xylophone (but is probably some kind of keyboard or pad), the music melds perfectly with Greta’s voice.

This Swedish dream pop group is definitely going to help you get your day started off right. Listen to it a couple of times to truly appreciate what they have going on here. We had to. If everyone listened to “Serve Somebody” on their morning commute, more people would be smiling on the subway, and there would be a lot more selflessness.
