Breakout newcomer mehro recently released the standout "chance with you" single and now returns with a remix from on-fire producer Kina. The single and remix come ahead of mehro's SKY ON FIRE project, due out March 25. The original track was featured on NPR's All Songs Considered where Bob Boilen said, "I wouldn't be the only person to think of the remarkable voice of Jeff Buckley when I first heard his music." "chance with you" also won praise from several other tastemakers like The Line of Best Fit, where his live performance garnered over 8,000 views and additional support from coveted playlists like Spotify's New Music Friday, Fresh & Chill, Indie Pop, Apple Music's New Music Daily, New In Alternative, Acoustic Chill, Pop Chill and has accumulated over 380K total streams in the first two weeks alone.


Kina's remix highlights the power of subtlety. This downtempo refresh showcases mehro's achingly passionate vocals, centering them as the main feature of the track. Accompanied by swelling synths, minimal percussion, and gorgeous balladic piano, Kina has taken the indie gem and transformed it into a powerfully emotional piece that straddles genre lines.


The simply exquisite "chance with you" is a love song for the ages. Passionate vocals muse on lost time as mehro confesses about a love he wishes he pursued: "If I could go back in time, I'd shoot my shot, just so I could have a chance with you."


Mehro's haunting vocals are that much more impactful in this remix of "chance with you." We've fallen in love with this song all over again, and you will too.

Victoria, B.C. duo Ocie Elliott – Jon Middleton and Sierra Lundy – dream up dusty folk painted in broad strokes of acoustic instrumentation and lyrical eloquence meant for nights under the stars, long drives with no destination, and quiet moments of reprieve. After racking up over 15 million combined streams and receiving acclaim from American Songwriter, Atwood Magazine, PopSugar, and more, the pair cement this balance on their new EP, Slow Tide [Nettwerk], out March 12, 2021.


Such a simple concept, yet so deep and intricate. That's Ocie Elliott's latest release, "Now You Don't." The minimal guitar and piano arrangement allows the vocals to resonate that much stronger. The vocals are understated and modest, while offering glimmers of sentimental sadness and honesty. The male and female vocals are a perfect combination on this track. This is one to close your eyes and unwind to.
