Phangs Speaks from the Heart in New Pop Single “Eyes Off You”

phangs-620

Debonair indie pop artist Phangs had a big 2017 with the release of debut EP, Get In My Arms, and now Jake Germany’s project is prepping for 2018 with the release of new single “Eyes Off You.” It’s a dreamy bop wrapped up in a sweater of synths that’ll keep your ears warm no matter how low the temperature outside drops. The track comes out during a 19 date house show tour that was booked in only 12 hours using Twitter. It’s easy to be the kind of fan that likes the latest Instagram post, but Phangs fans really go the extra mile in supporting the music. No Nashville concert is announced right now, but we’re told a special one is in the works.

Germany says “Eyes Off You” is about swooning over his badass fiancé. He says, “She’s just cool. Like cooler than me. She forgets her phone all the time and literally just can’t be bothered by petty stuff, and I think it’s one of the most attractive things about her.” The single comes out ahead of Phangs’ next EP, Happy Season, which is set for an early spring 2018 release on Nashville label Orange. The new EP is co-written and produced by Nashville based brother / sister writing team Truitt, who have their own pristine and excellent songs out now.

7Chariot Channels Sylvan Esso and Lorde with Debut Single “Ricochet”

7chariot-620

Love is a maze. When you meet someone new, it can lead quickly to a dead end. Or someone can take you along winding paths and down corridors you’ve never explored. Nashville pop artist 7Chariot explores this phenomenon in her debut single “Ricochet.”

Drawing influences from a murders’ row of pop acts like Grimes, Sylvan Esso and Lorde, 7Chariot serves at the artistic vehicle for 20 year old songwriter Claire Wilkinson. “Ricochet” sounds powerful, flexing its weight over the laser-focused vocal sample, workhorse bass lines and proud trumpets. Lyrically, the themes are more vulnerable and chaotic. Wilkinson says, “‘Ricochet’ is a song about the defence mechanism your brain builds when you think the relationship you’re in is too good to be true.” As a whole, the production makes for an urgent soundtrack to the mental structures being erected around the narrator’s mind.

Though “Ricochet” is Wilkinson’s debut as 7Chariot, the songwriter has already released a body of well-received work. Previous project Clairity racked up millions of streams, and Wilkinson co-wrote Kesha Rainbow cut “Godzilla” with prolific songsmith Pebe Sebert. Sebert, who has writing credits on Dolly Parton, Pitbull, Miley Cyrus and Merle Haggard tracks, plays a big part in where Wilkinson’s at today. Wilkinson says, “I taught myself how to play piano from YouTube tutorials in the 7th grade, and everything sort of grew from there. Shortly after I began writing, I met Pebe Sebert. Kesha’s mom, who took me under her wing, and taught me pretty much everything I know about songwriting.”
