pluko & Marlhy – “feelings” single
‘feelings’ contains a relatable narrative, tuneful vocals, and harmonic melodies. Also, the youthful tune possesses vibrant instrumentation flavored with a fresh indie-electronic aroma. Furthermore, “Feelings” follows hot on the heels of pluko’s critically-acclaimed second studio album, entitled, COLOR BLIND.
“We just the kids with the f**ked up feelings.”
“I wrote ‘feelings’ as a song to reflect my outlook on the world and life in general. Kind of just accepting things for how they are and really just making your life about what you want it to be. Turning not so good situations into good ones. I really want this song to just teach people to appreciate what they have, love each other, and to be accepting. Above all, I want this song to make people feel happy.” – pluko stated
pluko’s releases have racked up over 70 million streams online across various platforms. Also, he has performed at major festivals including Coachella, Firefly Festival, and Electric Forest. Last year, he launched Splendid Society, a record label, collective, and fashion brand.
“Let’s build a world where we got no ceilings.”
“I know, for me personally, I sometimes take small things too seriously or worry too much about things I shouldn’t. I hope when people hear ‘feelings’ they feel a sense of release and are able to live in the moment. One of the most important things I’ve learned growing up is that life is so much better when you’re focused on what makes you happy. And simply taking things as they come.” – Marlhy stated
Marlhy has taken the pop world by storm with her unique blend of genre-twisting pop. So far, she has collaborated with producers such as Alex Delicata (Beyoncé, Rihanna, Lil Wayne) and Mike Molina (John Legend, Rick Ross, Young Thug). The artist-to-watch is heavily influenced by Amy Winehouse, The Cure, and Bob Marley (her parents coining the moniker Marlhy from their love of the reggae legend). Also, Marlhy is a forward-thinking artist who, like pluko, is able to be a pivotal voice for their Gen Z peers.
“A genre-pushing single, ‘feelings’ is slated to become a new fan-favorite.”
