Vanessa, or rather Purple Ferdinand, may or may not be on your radar already. She's very much one of those "If you know, you know" kinds of artists where she's created something of a buzz around herself. Hell, she even managed to land a record deal with Columbia Records last year, earning herself a number of "one to watch" titles despite releasing a very minimal amount of music.

'Loving The Hate' is the lead track from her forthcoming Lovebound EP, due out on February 16. The minimal production makes for a heart-warming, yet totally heartbreaking experience that's like "twisted acceptance; accepting hurtful experiences, words and situations and growing an unnatural love for it," as she explained to The Fader. But those are the best kind of songs: the ones that can make you smile and cry at the same time.
