Cutch Candles bring comfort and company this Christmas!

New Cheshire-based candle company Cutch has launched a range of natural soy wax, hand poured, luxury scented candles, which ooze sophistication, style, and visual punch.

Cutch’s products are blended with essential oils and fragrances that wrap around the senses. Named after the Welsh term ‘Cwtch’, meaning an embrace of empathy and reassurance, Cutch candles create a sense of wellbeing and relaxation, whilst delivering a sensory embrace.

Cutch was born in June 2020 when the simple, heartening act of a consoling hug had disappeared overnight. Wanting to send that warmth and comfort during a time when you couldn’t wrap your arms around your loved-ones, Covid-entrepreneurs Fiona Crownshaw and Sarah Dickinson started working on their new, home fragrance range.

The candles are themed around Friendship, Lovers and Self Embrace. Created in small, hand-poured batches with no variances in scent or throw, the products use lavender, citrus and herb- based oils sourced from ethical suppliers, alongside nuanced and elegant blends of more exotic oils to give a distinctive edge. The hand illustrated packaging is recyclable, and the Cutch team fragrance the box alongside providing branded wrapping and gift tags with every order, to make customers feel embraced from the very moment they open their delivery.

NOVEMBER 6TH, 2020 – NEW YORK, NY – MUNI LONG, singer, songwriter and sonic anomaly returns today with the third single release from her long-awaited debut EP release titled “Nekkid” featuring YFN Lucci. The 7-track EP, dubbed Black Like This, will release everywhere digitally on Friday, November 13th and is just a one-part installation of a continuous string of music and visual rollouts to come in 2021.

“Nekkid” is accompanied by a short form visualizer, allowing fans to enter into the highly stylized and eccentric world of MUNI LONG – created through the futuristic lens of MUNI and masterfully styled by fashion architect Jason Rembert.

Ahead of her debut EP release, MUNI LONG, formerly Priscilla Renea, one of the most successful and sought after songwriters in the music business, speaks to VOGUE.com about the huge transition from behind the scenes and owning her own artistry. She states “Muni Long is the part of me that I always needed. She’s the protector of Priscilla.” “I knew I wanted to focus on me. I’ve been serving others for the last 12 years, and I started to feel unappreciated and captive.”

“Nekkid” comes after both single releases “Midnight Snack” featuring Jacob Latimore and “Breakin Up” – two records that have accumulated MUNI LONG over 1.1 million video views collectively. Black Like This will be distributed via SuperGiant Records, Long’s own label imprint.

– VOGUE

Muni Long makes her official debut with “Midnight Snack,” featuring singer/actor Jacob Latimore. The song and accompanying visual comes about a year after the Florida-born artist—who previously went by Priscilla Renea—decided to perform under the Muni Long pseudonym.
– COMPLEX

Songwriter Muni Long sounds utterly gleeful to announce a breakup on this ear-wormy R&B track.
– NYLON

Muni Long is in the mood for something sweet and savory in the wee hours of the morning on her new joint “Midnight Snack” featuring Bossip fave Jacob Latimore. Diet be damned, this is a craving that needs satisfying immediately and the edible innuendos baked into Muni’s single is a great way to work off some calories between the sheets. Be clear, Muni Long is not new to this type of music in any way, shape, or form. She’s been behind the scenes of the music industry writing some of your favorite songs from your favorite artists.
