Smashing snooze? Stop it.

It’s time to Rise Rock n’ Shine…


Who: Maggie Schneider loves to steal our hearts with her sweet honest tunes.

What:  Remember when PlugInStereo released “Oh Darling”? “Pretend” is like that, only even cuter.

Why: Maggie’s latest track is downright adorable and takes you back to your first date. (Plus did we mention how catchy it is?)

“My newest single ‘Pretend’ is about falling in love with your best friend and all of the feelings that go along with that. It’s about not wanting to ruin the friendship but also longing to try something new and take that next step. We wanted the song to feel cute and innocent, like two kids that have crushes on each other but are too shy to admit it. The lyric video (directed by Deanna Elise) captures that same feeling, and I hope the song allows people to reminisce on their first relationships.”

Who: Sofya Wang is confident, strong, and making the pop music of your dreams.

What: “Found Love” is so sultry and lavish, we kinda wanna live there.

Why: From the beach to the expensive fabrics to the lemon filled baths, Sofya Wang creates a strange world with “Found Love” but it’s one we’re totally down for.

“I wrote this song about the polarity of falling in love, and it’s inspired by my first love (and current girlfriend)! The fluid mellow choruses against the aggressive guitar riffs represent how love can be so pleasurable and painful at the same time. I think everyone has been in a situation where falling is so much fun, but it can be so bad for you if you’re not careful. Some of the lyrics express the metaphor for love as a drug, as if under the influence, saying, “words I can’t make out, sights I just can’t explain. Can’t answer right now, no thoughts on my brain.”
