On Our Radar: Pace, Laura Nox, Busted, and more


After a very tumultuous week in the United States after the presidential election, this new wave of music speaking of love and acceptance comes at a crucial time. From Pace singing of rash decisions, to Laura Nox questioning societal standards, to Gorgon City’s music video about never knowing the secret battles people face—there’s a lot to be learned from this batch of tunes on our radar.

Pace – ‘Foolish’

Pace frontman Eden describes ‘Foolish’ as “just how we’re feeling about the world at the moment.” He adds, “Sometimes people make rash decisions. The song is all about the errors we make in life, but it also leaves a positive impression.” ‘Foolish’ follows Pace’s debut track ‘Heartbeat’.
