Vast & Harker: “Nirbhaya” (Anti-Rape Anthem feat. Rita Morar)

Producing duo Vast & Harker‘s new song “Nirbhaya” features vocals by British Indian singer Rita Morar. Inspired by a horrific sexual assault in India and violence against women in general, a portion of the song’s proceeds will be donated to the women’s rights charity Breakthrough. It’s a dark, lovely song on a sadly topical subject which benefits a very worthy cause.

Introducing Silver Trees…

Nashville’s Silver Tress make pretty, indie folk-pop music that is at times reminiscent of The Rescues or The Civil Wars. So I, of course, love it. The following songs are from their debut EP, Paper Hearts.
