We are so happy to have Luxtides back on UMP. As always, she graces us with her unique, soft, and refreshing vocals, guided by lovely ethereal instrumentals. “After” is packed with questions about the perplexing experience of what happens when this is all over.


Candidly putting her emotions on display, the singer/songwriter expresses how debilitating anxiety can be. The current state of the world is something none of us have ever encountered. It has been a daunting and eye-opening learning curve, that has brought out a puzzling curiosity for a topic that may not have crossed our minds before.

Luxtides illustrates this concept in an enchanting way that many will resonate with. Even if you didn’t know you had these worries, or if you believed you were alone in your thoughts, this track brings to light that it’s not unusual. I’ll always appreciate Luxtides’ story-like writing style, which ignites dreamy visualizations.

Singer/songwriter Craig Stickland is back with his stunning new single, “Enemy.” It’s passionately personal, and you can feel every bit of pain, heartache, and raw honesty.


“Enemy” follows Stickland’s sensational debut album, “Starlit Afternoon,” which was released earlier this year. Featuring gorgeous piano instrumentals, this track is written with such vulnerability. Expressing the moment of heartbreak when you realize it’s over, knowing that you’re going to hold on to the memories, while they’re probably going to try to forget.



Beginning with the lines, “look at everything we’ve lost / taking shape in the ways we’re moving on,” sets the emotionally charged tone. Acknowledging that you understand, but also asking not to end on bad terms, and to not be viewed as an enemy.


There is a great deal of depth to “Enemy,” and the lyricism is so elegant and poised. Stickland’s gripping, powerful, and sultry voice has captured the attention of many throughout the past few years. His immense talent shines in this piece and its simplistic beauty.



We have been dazzled by Craig Stickland since 2016, and continue to be left speechless by how remarkable he is. He’s one of those artists that absolutely touches your soul and makes you feel with his music. There are few people I have been more impressed by.

Gainesville-based indie pop group Driveaway’s new single, “Is This Letting Go?” speaks to feeling broken in the most captivatingly dreamy way.



Driveaway ardently conveys what it's like to not be able to effectively communicate. Pinpointed on the frustration that comes with feeling unheard, but finally accepting that it's beneficial to focus on yourself. Incorporating profoundly moving vocals and epic, gorgeous instrumentals, “Is This Letting Go?” is an emotional journey.



There are moments of soft, soothing elements to this track that are sweet and simple, but also outrageously impactful. “Is This Letting Go?” expresses introspective and staggering thoughts idyllically.


This was my first introduction to Driveaway. After perusing their previous releases, I’m even more impressed. Beyond stoked to keep tabs on this incredible band. They are definitely a new favorite here at Untold Music Promotion.
