INDIGO Drops New Single “Rock The Boat,” Watch The Video Here
INDIGO draws everyone’s attention through her sultry vocals that are layered on top of a perfect blend of RnB and Afrobeats. Right off the bat, you can feel the Caribbean-influenced sounds on “Rock The Boat,” which is paired with summery visuals.
After a breakup, the Florida-based singer-songwriter is continuously in the healing process. Surprisingly, this catchy song is the result of it.
Likewise, “Rock The Boat” is a special tribute to the Queen of Urban Pop, Aaliyah, who sadly passed away in a plane crash back in 2001.
With this new single, it seems love has always been in the air, as lyrics evoke romanticism in its purest form. Additionally, the chorus makes this track an instant singalong.
World-renowned talents such as Mary J. Bilge, Prince, and Paramore are a constant source of inspiration artistically.
She’s planning to drop another gem later this year in collaboration alongside Haze Banks and possibly a mixtape in August.
On a side note, her desire to help independent artists in her hometown led her to create her own label, INDiGo Digital Records. That being said, she’s not only a visionary woman but also brings her compassionate heart into her work.
Without further ado, INDIGO should be on your radar. Period.

Dillon Releases “Cry Bebe” — Available Everywhere Via Stream
Full of warmth and lightness, Dillon’s second single, “Cry Bebe” from the accompanying album ‘6abotage,‘ could easily be perceived as her most Pop release. Following the oscillating lead single “<3core,” with which the Brazilian-born artist opened the new album cycle, Dillon presents another aspect of the uncompromising Klangwelt she and producer Alexis Troy have designed for the upcoming album.
Listening closely, the second harbinger appears lyrically ambivalent and stunned: “What goes up crashes down, for every high a comedown“, sings Dillon calmly in her usual brittle voice before asking, “Cry Bebe” to take away the depth of her pain. Dillon’s second single also deals with pain and despair, but instead of fostering this, Troy’s production offers relief and serenity through contradictory driving beats and warm synths. It is precisely this emotional interplay that makes this artistic collaboration so contemporary and complex, for everything can and may coexist. The accompanying album ‘6abotage,’ her first album statement since 2017, which Dillon describes as “a love letter, call for help and consequence all in one,” will be released in October.
