Emma Charles drops home-video inspired clip for "Connecticut"

Emma Charles continues to rise up the ranks of singer-songwriter notoriety in the LA area with the release of her new EP Connecticut, as well as the video for its title track. On "Connecticut", Charles uses her 2019 road trip from her home state of Connecticut to Los Angeles as an allegory for transitioning from the familiar to the unfamiliar, the comfortable to the unknown. The video for the track shows Charles as a child in many of her family's home videos, but it ends with the present-day singer-songwriter smiling, showcasing her readiness to go forth into whatever comes next for her. Billboard named Charles a Best Emerging Artist of 2020, and NOW That's What I Call Music named her a What's Next artist, an honor given previously to acts such as Shawn Mendes and Billie Eilish. Take a look at the video for "Connecticut" below. - Will Sisskind

Sara Melson takes it easy in new video for "State Of Ease"

Fans of Kate Bush's more mellow work will find something to love in Sara Melson's new track "State of Ease". Melson, a songwriter and actress, shines on her new single, marked by her airy vocals and the meditative backing track simple piano chords and echoing drums. The video comes rife with drone shots of Melson standing atop a cliff above the ocean, letting the wind whip at her dress and hair and watching the waves of the water roll up to the shore in the sunset. It's a mellow track that will help you find a relaxing start to your day or week; check out the video for "State of Ease" below. - Will Sisskind
