Curb | Word Entertainment recording artist Sarah Reeves officially unveils her highly-anticipated new LP, Life Love & Madness, available today (10/9). Reeves holds co-writing credit on each of the album’s 14 tracks.
Life Love & Madness boasts some of the most vulnerable writing of Reeves’ career, set against a backdrop of colorful, propulsive pop. American Songwriter has already showered Reeves’ latest collection with praise, saying, “In a world that needs something to dance to, Sarah Reeves delivers ‘Paradise.’”
Produced by Ian Keaggy (Hot Chelle Rae), Life Love & Madness is part mature reflection, part heartfelt confession. As a milestone birthday dawned a new decade for the singer/songwriter, she wisely took it as an opportunity to rewind the previous 10 years of her life and gain some much-needed perspective. Then, she set the past decade to lyric and music. Like a time capsule, her new LP preserves the best and worst of her 20s—a defining decade in every way.
“It was a venture of discovering who I am, learning how to love and letting all the madness in between become a part of my story,” Reeves shares of the decade staring back at her in the rearview that informed her new album. “It’s beautiful, chaotic, vulnerable and imperfect; but I wouldn’t have these songs without the experience. I’ve used this album as therapy for what I’m feeling, and I hope it can be therapy for other people.”
Leading up to today’s release of Life Love & Madness, Reeves dropped a series of official music videos for six fresh tracks. The most recent being a moody visualizer for “Motions” that transports Reeves into a hauntingly beautiful forest and also finds the songstress literally wearing a brave face, void of any makeup. Cinematic clips are also available for “Heart First,” “Paradise,” “Dance To It,” “Don’t Feel Like Fighting” and “Anxious.”

lil kiiwi is the long awaited debut album by the american singer Kiiara. It was released on 9th of October 2020 via Atlantic Records.
Pop singer-songwriter Kiiara quietly burst onto the scene in 2015 with her breakout debut single, “Gold.” The Illinois-born artist had a fresh sound and modern pop foundation with an unorthodox chopped-up vocal production that created an odd but effectively lyrical sound. The song racked up millions of streams, a Billboard chart position and even led to a high-profile collaboration on Linkin Park pop crossover track “Heavy.”
In the years that followed, she’d release an EP, record collaborations and release individual tracks—but never a full album. That all changes with the release of Kiiara’s full-length debut, lil kiiwi. The title references the singer’s earliest days of her career, a nickname of sorts as she was coming up as an artist. The new album is a mixture of previously released tracks with new material.
“So Sick,” a collaboration with artist-producer Blackbear, opens the album with expansive pop production and warlike rhythm. “You got me feeling so sick/ How could you move on so quick,” Kiiara sings on the chorus of the lovelorn breakup track, with Blackbear providing the second verse vocals and harmonies throughout.
“Feels” is a callback to Kiiara’s first EP. It’s a breezy laidback track with an ethereal and atmospheric synths. Kiiara’s vocal stylings are uniquely interesting—quiet and controlled, almost shy and whispered, but still bright and compelling. “I’ve got way too many feels/ Way too much emotion,” Kiiara sings about attempting to numb anxieties. “Brightside” is begins sparse and experimental before slowly growing more complex. Quite a few of the album’s 13 tracks clock in at under three minutes, saying what they need to say without superfluous filler.
“Don’t Get Confused” mixes in a stomping, toe-tapper of a beat with a repeating guitar and bass line. It’s bouncy and playful, a different emotion than the opening trio of tracks. Felix Snow collaboration “Whippin” recalls the singer’s trippy, choppy vocals of “Gold” to effective results. “I Still Do” is another lyrical kiss-off cut, with Kiiara singing about long-term self-doubt after ending a broken relationship. Sonically, it’s less experimental than much of the other material and is a welcome change of pace.
“Gold” will be an abundantly familiar addition for early Kiiara fans. The older cut helps to build a cohesiveness throughout the other songs and reflects her career trajectory. Serene ballad “Empty” channels the electro-pop of “Lights,” with a quiet restraint on the verses building into a more lush and driving chorus. The introspective “Never Let You” has a more prominent rock influence, bouncing from an acoustic guitar to a dirty distorted guitar sound over a heavy bass beat on the chorus—maybe a slight nod to the Linkin Park from her initial collaboration.
The dark and brooding “Numb” is a collaboration with DeathbyRomy and PVRIS. The echoing arrangement is complemented with multilayered vocals that are soaked in reverb, which only adds to the intensity. “Accidental,” meanwhile, bounces between several percussion tracks and tempos at a stop-and-start pace.
“Two Thumbs” is an ode to unrequited love through unanswered texts. The album closes out with with upbeat “Bad One,” a more conventional pop banger that’ll keep your head bobbing from start finishing. “I’m with a good, good boy/ I’m still in love with the bad one,” Kiiara sings, still trying to find her way around lost love and broken relationships.
Rising pop singer-songwriter Anna Clendening has released her Atlantic Records-debut EP, Evolve, available now alongside a poignant Joe DeSantis-directed music video for new single “Love Song” (copenned alongside Sam Fisher). Beginning with Anna stranded in a desolate wasteland, the visual elegantly juxtaposes the literal isolation Anna experiences with the loneliness associated with the sour end of the relationship she croons about in the song. Further on, Anna finds her way out of the barren desert, paralleling her ability to find closure and become emotionally vulnerable again.
“After many attempts at failed relationships, I have finally come to realize I need to love myself first before anyone else. This EP is a reflection of the things I’ve done and the progress I have made. This is a story of growth, of evolving.” – ANNA CLENDENING
The 5-track collection showcases the Chapel Hill-born, Los Angeles-based artist’s introspective songwriting and penchant for anthemic choruses – also featuring previously released stand-outs “Sorry That I Do That” and “Get Me,” the latter of which was hailed by Idolator as “an emotional post breakup anthem.”
Clendening relates through unfiltered lyrics ripped right from her notebook, robust vocals quaking with emotion, and brutal honesty. These ingredients struck a chord with listeners everywhere when she released her RIAA-certified Gold single “Boys Like You” in 2017, amassing over 100 million streams and critical acclaim from the likes of Billboard, Ones To Watch, Refinery29 & more. Meanwhile her debut EP, 2019’s Waves, generated over 150 million streams in under six months as she joined gnash on the road and headlined her own Waves Tour. Clendening has also lent her voice to high-profile collaborations with Illenium (“Broken Ones”), Lost Kings (“Too Far Gone”), Phantoms (“Say It”) and most recently Matoma (“Let It Go”) before signing to Atlantic Records earlier this year.
In tandem with her honest songwriting, Clendening has proven to be a source of universal encouragement and an incredible advocate for mental health awareness. Sharing openly with fans about her own mental health journey managing anxiety – eventually diagnosed as a symptom of borderline personality disorder – she’s continually channeled these challenges through the healing power of music, and her new EP is no exception. Showcasing refreshing candor, Evolve tackles these issues head on as she details the cyclical nature of her past romantic relationships. An evolution relatable to anyone who has tried their hand at love. Or being human, for that matter.
“About five years ago, someone came up to me and said, ‘By fighting through your anxiety in this huge uncomfortable moment on stage, you made me feel so comfortable’,” shares Clendening. “I was like, ‘Well shit, now I’m in it. I’ve got to be open about it.’ I want you to be able to scream my music in the car. I wantyou to feel like the things going through your head are normal. I want you to feel empowered. I want you to feel loved. I am loud. I am obnoxious. I am a potty mouth. I’m very emotional. I write music. I wear sweatpants. I’m myself. I’m just fucking human, man.”
