“Thunderstorm” By Nikki Lynette

“Thunderstorm” is the new single by Chicago artist and writer Nikki Lynette, a perennial favorite here at OurStage. This one is a booming R&B track, with a sweet verse melody that conveys deeply personal and confessional, yet still universally accessible lyrics. It’s about the turmoil of self-doubt, and having to get through it alone. “No one can save me from my thunderstorm,” she sings in the refrain. Listen below.

Avarex “Lookin Flee”

New Jersey’s Avarex is back with a new single, “Lookin Flee.” It’s another strong track from an artist fast earning a reputation as one of the best in the Northeast, and who we continually see placed at the top of our Rap and Hip-hop charts. Ava has such a unique flow, rising and falling, in clipped tones, that he instantly stands out from the pack. Check it out below.

“Lookin Flee” will be featured on a forthcoming mixtape from Avarex.

KAZE: “Pinned On You”

We featured this single on our Amazing Radio show a couple of months ago, and now we’re happy to present the official video for “Pinned On You” by the Manchester UK duo KAZE. The track is a barn burner, alternatingly aggressive and vulnerable in the narrative of affections spurned, with a completely off-kilter verse and a hard rocking chorus. The video is inventive, directed and with a compelling performance by singer Amy Webber, who interacts with animations on the screen as a kind of psychic projection of the lyrics. Check it below.

“Pinned On You” is from the EP No Filter, available now.

Skypp’s New Single, “Abbrv.” Feat. Maxie

A killer new track from a wild talent, “ABBRV. (SkillSkill)” is Indianapolis artist Skypp‘s paean to toning down and tuning out the noise, the monologues and dialogues from within and without that amount to nothing more than talk. “Cut it short / I appreciate it, but abbreviate it,” he spits. “Skills told me, say less / First you gotta take steps / Then you jump off the porch / And put your foot on they necks.” The guest verse by fellow 317 rapper Maxie is a tight contrast and compliment to Skypp’s flow. “Abbrv.” is from Jaffe II, which dropped at the end of June and is available here.
