VIDEO PREMIERE: Get Dizzy – Lexicon H

Lexicon H’s debut single is a reflective track that tackles big topics in a short burst, and the official video clip exclusively launches today on LIKE VELVET Music. ‘Get Dizzy’ challenges the pursuit of future dreams at the cost of our present happiness.

TRACK: Didn’t Call – COTTA

There’s something about waiting for a phone call that never comes. It starts with intense excitement, then creeps into a sense of doubt, until finally you meet pure frustration (especially when you’re charged and ready for something a little more playful). COTTA’s latest track Didn’t Call somehow makes you feel light and youthful while also being entirely relatable in adult relationships.

TRACK: Slowdance – Mndsgn

There’s something about a slow dance that can make the world fall away. It’s a moment where time stands still. Your body is intimately close to another. Between you and the music there’s nothing else that exists, and you never want that moment to end. Mndsgn’s latest track is a commitment to never stop that dance, metaphorically moving in time with the music of life, while capturing the lush and soulful sonic ambience of those private moments.

TRACK: Fruit – SAYAH

Releasing her first track in two years, SAYAH has absolutely delivered on her signature ‘confessional pop tracks that make your mum blush’.

Wrapped up in an exciting and catchy tune, SAYAH has confidently declared her return and set the bar high for her future.
