In The Spotlight

Rachel White – “No Label”

Raised in Kinross and now based in London, this Scottish singer/songwriter attended Razzamataz Theatre School at 13 and went on to study at MGA Academy Of Performing Arts. Since then she’s played Wednesday Addams on stage in The Addams Family and sailed as entertainer on a cruise ship. Inspired by Hailee Steinfeld, Shawn Mendes and Holly Humberstone, she debuted with her 2020 single “Royalty”.

Lyrically guiding us through the treacherous landscape of the ‘situationship’ – seeing someone for a while, having feelings for them, but not being in a relationship – her new single tackles the confusion with an uplifting melody. With an infectious beat, singing guitars and heavenly backing singers, it’s her honeyed, yet powerful vocals that make this alluring tune sound lively and yet silky-smooth.

Hanne Leland – “Good Days”

Hailing from the small town of Byremo in Norway, this sassy singer and songwriter began playing piano aged 9, wrote her first song at 10 and added guitar at 14. In 2013 she went to America and recorded an album in Nashville. Back in Norway she started experimenting with various different genres. Inspired by Tove Lo, Alanis Morissette and Carly Rae Jepsen, she debuted with “Beautiful You” in 2013.

Starting with a punchy beat, playful handclaps and a touch of attitude, her bubbly new single soon reveals it to be a clever fusion of 60s pop and modern indie-pop elements. With the relentless beat guiding us through the song, it shows cheery retro piano and an acoustic guitar along the way. And with her fierce, yet refreshing vocals, this tune is delightfully vintage as well as totally current.
