Welcome to the Church of Saint Slumber.

Last month, I had the absolute pleasure of attending the Malibu x Saint Slumber x Moonroof live show in Philly. Needless to say, it was an incredible time. To tell you the truth, I was only familiar with one band going in: Saint Slumber. I've been following them since 2020. And by following, I mean that they haven't left my "On Repeats" since November 14, 2020. I had never seen them live before, but they topped my concert bucket list.

While there will be links and embeds galore for you to explore, here is a Spotify playlist with selections from all three for you to start out with: 2021's Winner: Saint Slumber's EP, how to lose your self. I’d honestly be really sad for you if you missed Saint Slumber’s late-December release last year. That is why I’m telling you about it now! :) Because how to lose your self is the best EP I heard in all ...

LO LA To Debut New “Heartbreak Anthem” On Valentines Day

At just 21 years old, Los Angeles-based LO LA has already been performing for more than a decade. The talented singer/songwriter is coming into her own with the release of the new single "Toxic Love" on Valentines' Day. The mid-tempo track is described as a new "heartbreak anthem". It's the perfect song for anyone who's been burned by an ex-boyfriend or girlfriend. "Toxic Love" came together quickly for LO LA. She collaborated with her producer to lay it down in his parent's garage. Serving as proof that you don't always need to go into a flashy studio to express yourself. LO LA burst onto the scene in 2018 with the release of her debut single "Can't Keep Helping Myself". A cover she did of Lana Del Rey's "Queen of Disaster" led to viral fame on Tik Tok. The song has been incl...
