“Vaeda Black is green in the indie industry, but that didn’t stop her from making FKA Twigs meets Lana Del Rey-esque bop “Face Down.” At just 16 years old, Black has a powerful voice made for the charts. A newcomer on the rise, Black and Substream have teamed up to premiere her first single “Face Down.” Her forthcoming EP will be released in early 2018.”

The Sometimes Island is premiering a second track, “Can’t Move On” from their upcoming EP exclusively on Substream. The single is equipped with dreamy harmonies, synth tones, and a bass line perfect for summer nights. Lyrical content courtesy ofMatt Blankenship Jr., the man behind The Sometimes Island, really shines in this track that tackles the struggle of being between two feuding exes.
“Two very close friends of mine were dating, and when they broke up I was in the middle of it, hearing both sides and feeling very torn. Those sentiments channeled into this song, written from each of their perspectives. The inability to communicate – with battle lines drawn and pride on the line – made me feel a little like a cloud floating over a battlefield. This song was my way of dealing with it, using the music symbolically to put in little silences and finally an explosive, dramatic bridge.”
Keep an eye, and an ear, out for the full EP set to release July 28th. The Sometimes Island will also be heading out on a West Coast tour later this summer.
