Rae Isla
Rae Isla
Rae Isla creates "ether pop" music - songs with catchy hooks and spiritual depth. She was raised on a small island near Seattle and now resides in Brooklyn. Her debut single Mexico, produced by Gianluca Buccellati (Tei Shi, Yellerkin), was released in September, 2017. The track features Mexican guitarist Lito de la Isla of Los Rumberos de Massachusetts, and was written in the Mexico City neighborhood of Coyoacán, home to Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera. She co-produced her second single Just Because alongside pop artist Dominique. Rae is currently self-producing her debut EP, working with musicians from both Mexico and Brooklyn. The EP is slated for release in summer of 2018.
Beccs
Beccs
Hailed as The Deli Magazine’s Artist of the Month and one of NYLON Magazine’s “favorite cool girls”, Brooklyn-based artist beccs has a “one-of-a-kind” voice that HuffPo says “screams originality”. Fusing elements of soul, alternative and folk, beccs explores the power and expanse of femininity with a sound that is as dynamic as it is vulnerable.

beccs’ songwriting has been awarded by the John Lennon Songwriting Contest, the International Songwriting Competition, Coffee Music Project, and a national social justice contest for her single “Scared Of Me”: a song that credits women who are inherent soldiers. beccs' video for her award-winning single "Therapy", "a stellar visualization of battling one’s inner demons", premiered on the front page of NYLON. The title track of beccs’ debut EP 'Unfound Beauty' premiered at Cannes Film Festival May 2015, featured in the short film Yellow Heart (dir. Sophia Harvey). ‘Unfound Beauty’ traces beccs’ relationship to herself, her recovery and her struggle to find her own unfound beauty.
Pale Ramon
Pale Ramon
Over the past year and a half, Kevin Plessner (formerly of Monuments and Oceanographer) and Emanuel Ayvas (currently of Emanuel and the Fear) have brought to life Pale Ramon, a four piece rock band hailing from North Brooklyn. The music has been described as a blend between Radiohead, Pink Floyd, and Mogwai.

Their debut album is due to be released in 2018.

Like the perfect midpoint between the soft pop heartbreak of Shura and the pure 80’s e•mo•tion of Carly Rae, “Dangerous” is a Dev Hynes-esque LES rooftop stunner that’s here just in time to melt away the NYC winter. - Neon Gold Records
Delivering a breakout track that would find a fitting home on Madonna’s True Blue, “Dangerous” by New York-based sister duo Frances Rose is the ultimate saccharine sweet, ’80s-inspired single. - BULLETT Media
