Song: Better Man
BC singer songwriter Kandle Osborne’s vocals have an enchanting defiance on this blues tinted rock track. She hopes that this song “will inspire those in an inferior position to no longer normalize the silent epidemic of abuse of power. And if you’ve been a casualty of manipulation, seek redemption by waving the red flag and being resilient.”
Song: Just Another Day
The agility of Adeline’s vocals are so stunning and impressive. They shine on a backdrop of laid back and soulful funk/R&B. The French-Caribbean singer, bassist and producer explains the track is about “questioning your place in the world, not feeling accepted, pretending to be in someone else’s shoes.” Find it on her new EP, Intérimes, out now!
