The Muses of La Musa: Yseult

Yseult has a golden voice and a mind of steel. A talent we first saw in 2015. A vibrant manifestation of empowerment that settles its accounts and shines through its resilience. Her music is nourished by variety, indie rock, psychedelic, pop and trap. Amazing, refined, efficient. A “Y-Trap” that reflects what she listens to every day, from Lizzo to Feu! Chatterton, from Adele to Damso and Tame Impala.

The French singer is reframing the narrative about body image while baring her emotions and her body in the soulful song from her new EP Noir. The 25-year-old singer uses her music to empower listeners while addressing injustices against women. Yseult combines her art with fierce activism and authenticity.

His real name is Erwan Castex; ‘Rone’ being a successful pseudonym for his stage performances.

Last week he  shared “Esperanza,” the fourth single from his forthcoming album, Room With a View.

Music by Bergman: Ten Tonnes

22-year-old Ten Tonnes – real name Ethan Barnett – is the younger brother of George Ezra, but with his debut record he showed he is not in his brother’s shadow. Though they both have very cheerful poppy guitar filled songs, and Ten Tonnes steers away from his elder brother’s influence through the incorporation of the ’90s/’00s indie rock genre.

‘Girl Are You Lonely Like Me?’ is the first slice of new music from Ten Tonnes since the release of last year’s barnstorming self-titled debut album.
