Roll up, roll up! It’s my first release of the year, the Valentine’s Day maxi single, If That Isn’t Love.
What’s on the Valentine’s Day maxi single?
I’ve tried kicking it up a notch with this release and including a previously unheard B-side. It was a bit of a risk, but one friend told me it was his new favourite! This time I’ve also been able to rope in not one, but two producers into creating some remixes for me.
If That Isn’t Love (Ichigo Chill Mix) by Muggs Majandhra is like nothing else my voice has been paired with before! I really love the moody, yet laid back vibe. I think he’s really outdone himself this time!
Kimmo was a remix making machine this month. His Love Anthem Dub was actually only one of four possible mixes that he put together for me. The one I chose just seemed like exactly what this release needed. I was so pleased with it, and my long-time music friend, CRYSTALxBOY also pointed out what a great sound it had.
Mainstream Radio Airplay
You might have already heard from my overexcited posting on Instagram, but I had the great honour of having If That Isn’t Love played on BBC Radio Lancashire. It was played as part of the BBC Introducing in Lancashire programme, presented by Sean McGinty (please note this direct link to the programme will expire in a few days, at which point I’ll replace it with the general link).
It was so validating to have something I’d written, recorded, sourced samples for, arranged, produced and styled all by myself, played in front of such a wide audience, and chosen by someone who really knows his onions when it comes to radio.
Again, the same as with my last release, First He Came To Her, I am somewhat delayed in completing the video projects for this Valentine’s Day maxi single!
This time around there will be not only a lyric video (which will be entirely quirky and delightful, promise!), but a music video also.
Filmed on location in an old church hall, it’s definitely got that moody, melancholy vibe I was looking for, but also combined with a lot of bold and expressive movement.
In the meantime, you can watch this sampler video:
