The talented artist's unique music is an inviting combination of colorful lyrics and catchy melodies. HAAS explains that she originally started music as a way to escape. She elegantly touches upon not only insecurity and self-doubt, but also strength and freedom. There is an uplifting and powerful vibe to this piece that can’t be ignored.


This is perfect for those who feel like they don’t see the world the same way that others do. “Headfirst” is described as “a single about being a fearless dreamer in a misunderstanding environment.” HAAS was able to take personal experiences and turn them into a song that many can connect with - including those like me who may not necessarily feel that courage.

ØPALS’ new single, “Middle of the Night,” is a flawless illustration of that euphoric relief when the darkness of mental illness fades.



ØPALS is an alternative pop project featuring Ale Gibson. The singer/songwriter describes “Middle of the Night” as showing the best version of yourself. Their unique vocals are a perfect match for the bouncy instrumentals and inspiring lyrics in this track. Ale and producer Nigel Seibert originally collaborated as a duo to create several sub genres of pop.


Written as a reflection of their own battle with bipolar disorder, depression, and anxiety, ØPALS sets a mood of feeling free. I can imagine this being in a coming-of-age film, but it will easily resonate with people of all ages.



They explain that, “‘shining bright in the middle of the night’ represents overcoming the darkness that is mental illness.” As someone who also struggles with this, I’ve noticed that when experiencing prolonged dimness, having just a second of light feels so magical and you appreciate it even more than you would if you got to live in that brightness all the time.


You can hear “Middle of the Night” as well as their debut single, “Better” on streaming services now! Follow ØPALS to stay connected and enjoy what I’m sure will be a fantastic journey for them.

MELÓ conjures a dreamy and captivating atmosphere in her debut single, “Counting Sheep!”



An indie-pop artist with folk influences, MELÓ creates the type of music that is a brilliant combination of easy listening with profound, depth-filled lyrics doused in mesmerizing storytelling. “Counting Sheep” expresses the curious contemplation that plagues a racing mind.


MELÓ explores genre-fluid music, and touches upon complex topics such as impacts of growing up too quickly, mental illness, manipulation and abuse, and craving simplicity. These concepts can be heard in “Counting Sheep,” as well as in her upcoming singles and future EP, “Youthless.” MELÓ collaborated with Measure (Sergei Kofman), an upcoming producer from Toronto, to produce “Counting Sheep.”



I try to create a space where both the listener and I can feel comfortable with our vulnerability.


The acoustic sound in this track warmly accompanies the tender and comforting vocals. You can vibrantly feel the way that she uses music as an outlet for her emotions, and I respect the raw vulnerability it provides.


MELÓ has something special about her that absolutely draws you in. We are looking forward to hearing more from her soon!
