NEW MUSIC: CALL ME LOOP | PAINKILLER
Emerging UK popstar Call Me Loop had made waves in the music industry since long before she helped pen The Pussycat Dolls’ 2020 single “React.” Amongst the new generation of unabashed pop singers, she shares her new infectious single aptly titled “Painkiller” today. On the song, Loop croons, “Cause you walked away so easy, you gave up without a fight / I know I’m the one who messed up, but I still have a right to demand a little more of you / I can’t believe you wouldn’t talk things through.” Before releasing the pop ballad “Painkiller,” Call Me Loop rung in the new year with her surefire song “Year of the Ex.” Accompanied by nostalgia-tinged visuals, the three-minute cut perfectly falls somewhere between fierce and eccentric. However, this song keeps the momentum going and further cement one of the most radiant emerging voices in pop. Initially known by Loop (the name of a 1980s indie band who got back together in the 2010s), Buchanan rebranded herself as Call Me Loop. In April 2016, Call Me Loop independently released her debut single, "Thinking of You." This was followed by various single releases, including "Losing My Mind," "As If," and "Know Me Better." "As If" received attention from the public when Elton John selected the song to play on his Beats 1 radio show. In May 2017, she supported English DJ Jonas Blue on his European tour.
