Annie Foxx has just released her debut single Blood Runs Cold. She is a brand new artist inspired by artists such as Bishop Briggs and Billie Eilish. This song was a collaboration with Nashville songwriter/producer Austin Bianco. They had both watched Peaky Blinders during quarantine and were inspired by Thomas Shelby’s character. Thomas Shelby is a very complex character that gives off a cold and callous mentality and confidence essentially in order to survive and to escape his dark past. I could definitely picture this song in the Peaky Blinders soundtrack. Blood Runs Cold has a really nice pop beat but also has an edgy alternative vibe to it. Annie Foxx’s powerhouse vocals really carry this song. I love the attitude of this song it reminds me of Believer by Imagine Dragons. Also reminds me of Dark Horse by Katy Perry. The song is very well produced and comes together really nicely. The lyrics “Let the crazy burn right out of the cage load it up and let it fire away” lead me to believe this person has a lot of rage inside and is ready to let it all out. This all builds up to the chorus where Annie sings “Take what I want I’m about to explode”. However she’s been through this struggle and they’re ready to let go and take control.

Meghan Pulles is a very talented singer songwriter from New York. She has been recognized by fans all over the world for her lyrics that take her fans on an emotional journey of healing. New Horizon is a brand new song that shines bright with an uplifting story to tell. It is a very minimalistic song which I really enjoyed. It has a very neo folk vibe which reminded me a lot of The Lumineers. In my perception, this song is about leaving behind a broken past and moving towards a happy chapter in life. The lyrics “How do I say goodbye when it’s dark and cold inside” makes me feel that this person is having a hard time moving past the darkness in their life. The chorus is very positive and hopeful. I think a lot of people will relate to this song as we are all trying to find our happy place and leave behind the past. Overall, I definitely recommend this track as we need more songs to inspire us and get us through the year.
