Artist: Keaton Henson
Keaton Henson’s vulnerable, delicate singer/songwriter pieces continue to be as emotionally devastating as always (in the best way possible). A notoriously private artist, Keaton explains that Ambulance “is an entertainer’s cry for help, mistaken for a pop song, and applauded instead of aided. Being an artist is a great honour, but sometimes it can feel like you’re having a seizure and being mistaken for dancing.” Find it on his new album, Monument, out now!

Artist: Reuben and the Dark
Reuben Bullock’s vocals bring such soul to everything that he does, and this newly released b-side from the bands latest album, un | love is no exception. He explains that this folk-rock song “was written to be included in un | love but the timing of it didn’t feel right. It’s a song about love. About process. And quite simply, change. We are in a strange place in time. All of us are going through transformations… transitions. Many of us feel like trees just trying to hold onto their leaves. But, it is a time for transformation. Embracing the seasons of the heart. We have been changed. We are still changing. The heart of this song is love… but those words feel much bigger.”
