An upcoming track from the band's soon-to-be-released EP is sweet and simple, the way summer should be for everyone. The band's founder Mariel Beaumont had the following to say about the single:

"Just Like You" is about falling for someone who over-indulges in all your bad habits -- you want to get swept away, but you know it could lead you down a dark path. I wrote it with my friend Molly Martin in Nashville - it was my first and only co-writing session and it was a blast. The rest of the band was psyched about the initial demo and helped turn it into a super fun song that we all love playing live.

NYXE | "Queen"

A collaboration between this alt-pop artist and acclaimed producer Dru DeCaro has created what might be your summer power anthem. A feminist sentiment coming from a futuristic planet that plays on DeCaro's alter ego is mesmerizing, and know the goodness does not end as the same duo is working on a book due out this fall.
