Song: Right Here
Album: Powder Blue
A vocal powerhouse and electric performer, Begonia is an alt-pop artist of the highest quality. Speaking about her upcoming album, Powder Blue, Begonia explains: “There’s an indulgence in emotional depth and pain yet also an indulgence in love and a poppy lightness—two sides I’ve always tried to balance. I feel like I let my guard down even more with this record and decided to not hold back on either end.” The album will be out February 24!

Artist: Blair Lee
Song: Flower Mind
EP: The Puppy Game
Blair Lee explains the inception of this indie-rock song: “I was sitting on the streetcar going nowhere – I had no plans other than to leave the apartment. I saw a girl riding her bike along the waterfront, a basket of flowers hanging off her handlebars and I thought ‘hmm… I’d like to be like that.’ She looked like she had some place to be. Flower Mind is about having strong envy for certain characters/people I encounter who seem so bright and bubbly and charismatic and charming.”
