Dutch trio RMR have shared a free stream of their track ‘Lights’.
RMR is just a placeholder taken from the first initial of the member’s first names; Ricardo Romijn, Max van Lierop and Roy de Valk.
They signed with Powerhouse Music not long after coming together.
Julia Louise said that ‘Brat’ is about , “Thinking your friends are kind and loyal and then they trample all over your heart for fun,” in a statement.
The track is taken from her debut album, Love Jail, out on October 13 via No Sleep Records. Louise said the album is about “feeling trapped because you have no control over your own feelings. It’s about someone else being in the driver’s seat of your emotions.”
“I’ve written so many songs about learning to fall more gracefully, but not a lot of songs about actually daring myself to fall,” Elizabeth Ziman of Elizabeth and the Catapult said about the Meredith Adelaide-directed video for ‘Underwater’.
Adelaide shot the video entirely in Ziman’s “spaces”, allowing insight into the development of the song and its message.
The track is taken from her latest release Keepsake, due out on October 20 via Compass Records. The album was produced by Dan Molad and Peter Lalish from Lucius, Rob Moose (Bon Iver, Antony and the Johnsons, Joan as Policewoman) and Richard Swift.

Baby!, the latest project from Kaley Honeycutt, has offered a free stream of her debut album Sunny F.L. as well as the video for ‘Bite My Tongue’.
