In order to make your light lockdown a little sweeter (or even more beautifully melancholic), we have curated a list of tunes by womxn that we crushed on hard. Every month, we introduce up and coming and established female artists’ music to you – for your solo Halloween party and beyond! These are our October picks.
Sizzy Rocket – Spill My Guts
„ANARCHY“ is the title of Sizzy Rocket’s new album, including this melancholic-yet-dreamy piece: Spill My Guts. She is combining lyrical excellence with her punk-rock roots on the record and it is definitely one to cuddle up to and survive winter months with.
„Blut geleckt“ (engl.: „Tasted blood“) is a song about the end of a toxic relationship by German newcomer Gloria Blau. Lines like „Die Zeit färbt meine blauen Flecken bunt“ (engl.: „Time makes my blue bruises colorful“) bravely captures a subject that is still too rarely talked about: violence in romantic relationships. Gloria’s beautiful jazzy, clear voice is paired with distorted piano tunes and will be part of this year’s „listen to berlin“ compilation.
Are you looking for a cure for your winter heart break? Look no futher. “Pretty Pills for Broken Hearts” by newcomer Cloudy June will make you wanna get your heart broken again and again in a loop, so you can put this song on repeat again.
