Louien - Deep Within

Just a couple of weeks ago, we added Louien's single "Better Woman" to our playlist. We've just been listening to Louien's brand new EP "No Tomorrow" and the opening title is a cracker of song. Nordicana at its finest.

Live Miranda Solberg, the person behind "Louien", says about the song: “Deep Within’ is about when a change is coming, when you feel the fibres of your body change. When you’ve worked so hard to feel better and do better, and you can feel how it pays off”

"Deep within me
Something is rising
From the ashes of the old
Closer and closer
It's reaching out for me
Changing the patterns in me as it grows

That's how the bullet got stuck
Stuck in the barrel
Was pointing the gun at my own head
The bullet got stuck in the barrel"

Cotton Clifton - Stay

A fantastic country song is Cotton Clifton's "Stay". Cotton Clifton about the song: ""Stay" is a deeply personal but universal tale about loneliness and the need for connection, as well as showing vulnerability towards and seeking comfort in others during troubled times. Whether it’s the 9-5 grind, the wear and tear of the road, or the weight of crumbling societal infrastructure amid a worldwide pandemic, sometimes all we can muster during our struggles is, ‘please...just stay.'"

"I have roamed the streets called memory
I have swam in the blood in my veins
I have stared into the heart of the sun
But I have never met a woman like you

There's this place we travel often
That knows no pain or untrue heart
This place is real or at least I'd like to think so
For I go there more and more everyday

Another day another dollar
Paradise is fading away
One can only hope things get better
So, baby for now please just stay"

Turner Cody & The Soldiers Of Love - Lonely Days in Hollywood

Turner Cody's "Lonely Days In Hollywood" is a great laid back, bluesy and extremely groovy tune about exploited dreams where everybody is turning out to be fake ("Everyone is always nice and everything is fine/But every tongue is cold as ice and caught up in a bind”).

Check out Turner Cody's amazing album "Friends In High Places".
