Over the last year, singer-songwriter Briana Marela has been charting new creative territory. Known for her ambient, dreamlike sounds, she released her third album, Call It Love, on August 4. This new record is more beat-driven than her previous efforts. Marela, who describes herself as an anti-fascist, has also used her music to make political statements. The label she's associated with, Secretly Group, launched the program Our First 100 Days, which released a song for each of the first 100 days of Donald Trump's presidency.
