In a stripped-back production, the single’s delicate notes and gentle synths usher in a feeling of tranquillity, while a pang of sadness tears through its chorus. “I’m questioning the meaning of love” explains Mysie, “‘fade’ is about the beginning of the end of my relationship and I was really in the thick of it at the time”.

Brimming with soul-baring vocals, head-bopping beats and sensual instrumentals, Santino dissects the toxic thoughts that run through our heads when love puts us in an all-consuming chokehold.
Rasharn Powell and Ojerime – “Play 2”

Building a dreamy soundscape from the off, the track blends ear-worming beats with smooth-toned vocals to transport its listeners to a state of bliss serenity. Calling upon the angelic lyrical prowess of Ojerime, the pair prove they are a match made in lo-fi heaven. Speaking of the visual, the pair explains, “This video lifts us out of this world in a similar way the song does. It’s kinda extraterrestrial. The natural shape of the boulders seems similar to Play 2’s artwork, mirroring the contouring of our bodies. It adds a different view to the sensuality of the song plus I’ve always wanted a video in the desert!”
Ingrid Andress – “Good Person”
Offering a spell of ethereal lightness, Ingrid Andress drops her sultry new single, “Good Person”. With a melody that balances between waking and dreaming, the track descends into a lyrical stream of consciousness, where Ingrid reflects on herself as a person — offering a listen which is as cathartic as it is satisfying. Speaking of her new track, Ingrid explains, “I wrote ’Good Person’ when I realized that I was starting to question a lot of things. What makes somebody good and what does that look like, and in a world of being so judgmental of other people, what makes you better than them? With the video, I really wanted to mesh these worlds of light and dark and highlight the parallels between the two. Stay tuned fam. This is just the beginning.”
