MKSTN and tiger lily are hidden gems in the Toronto and Los Angeles music scenes, respectively. In the past year, both released tracks that caught the attention of accredited blogs like SPIN Magazine, Stereofox, and EARMILK, as well as Spotify’s editorial team who placed them on major playlists like Fresh Finds, Indie Pop and Make Out. MKSTN’s music was circulated in sets by artists ranging from Martin Garrix to Washed Out while tiger lily raised thousands for charities that support POC and LGBTQ+ lives through throwing benefit concerts. The artists came together for their latest single, a nostalgic chill electronica pop track entitled “like we’re an indie movie.” As the artists put it, “We connected over the internet. We thought it’d be cool to capture tumblr and internet culture into our take on a modern indie movie soundtrack. The song was inspired by Spotify playlist names and distant memories of spontaneous trips to chase a summer love. As the hook, sung over Paris field recordings and lofi riffs goes, ‘kiss me in the rain like you’ll only ever love me / like we’re in an indie movie.’”

“MKSTN’s approach towards electronic music has left a big impression on us . . . a sonic scape of falling in love” – Stereofox

“From the rain-soaked streets of Seattle to the concrete jungle on New York, tiger lily is clearly making memories and giving them sonic life . . . the grainy film of memories so sweet and persistent” – EARMILK
