Neave Marr – ‘Broken Girl’
‘Broken Girl’ so clearly paints a picture of what toxic partners do to every future relationship you have. They start a cycle of self-doubt that is extremely hard to end, and Neave Marr gets it. Any artist who can convey an exact situation this well deserves their place in this crazy industry.

Britt Lari – ‘Wild’
If a track can nail the genre of electro-pop, there is a one hundred percent chance we’re going to love it, and ‘Wild’ did just that. We are immediately adding this Britt Lari track to our summer playlists. We can’t stop dancing around our rooms as though we are at a club.

I wrote this song months after my very toxic long term relationship ended, once the fog cleared and I was able to see that I should have left sooner
