jackLNDN – ‘Bad Decisions’

“I feel like this is a highly relatable song [‘Bad Decisions’]. It’s about self-destructive tendencies and those moments when we knowingly make poor choices to escape the reality of our lives. We all turn to different vices for escapism, be it drinking, substances or sex. When you know what you are doing is unhealthy and a poor life choice, but you still engage in that behaviour with a deliberate desire to cause chaos while running from or numbing your own pain.”

Martial Simon – ‘High In July’

“‘High in July’ is very personal to me because I wrote the lyrics during the pandemic as an escape. I was inspired by the Hamptons beach town vibe to write a song that captures the imagery of summer. Beautiful beaches, sunbathing, drinking rosé and riding around in a convertible listening to music.”

This new chapter begins with the lush and propulsive ‘Sandman’. A four-year labor of love for Thomas, the MGMT and INXS-inspired single expands the room with an array of vintage synths, live drum kits, huge basslines, and melodic leads. No doubt, though, it’s Thomas’ voice that stands out above all – this is the final piece of the puzzle that enabled Thomas to complete the track and realize his overall vision for his much-heralded return.
