Genuinely a powerful & pretty special collection. Brilliant songwriting, stunning compositions & flawless musical performances to back it all up.
A bold & unapologetically open song that presents a certain truth in a notably real way. You can hear the connection between singer & subject matter.
Far from the usual set-up. The music has a retro feel, classic or vintage synths & early electronic-style riffs craft beautiful & captivating audio.
This is a field where experimenting & pushing boundaries is key. The artists I respect learned to adapt to being better in new ways. The risks make it fun.
Brilliantly infectious, intensely satisfying folk-rock-indie-blues fusion. Leaves you wanting more, though there’s plenty to appreciate as you hit repeat.
You’re not pulled in from afar by some overly loud or boisterous element. Instead, the simple beauty of the music provides a glow that subtly surrounds you.
Balances a carefree sense of character with considerate awareness of context. It sounds great because you know it well & because you hardly know it at all.
A winning formula, successfully fusing the grit & realness of rock with a fairly polished level of production that allows the song to shine brightly.
The song opens with questioning lyrics, later on offering more of a story telling element – presenting potential solutions or answers to those queries.
The weight & hit of heavy music connects & satisfies, but the melody has an alternative sense of emotion. It contrasts beautifully with the screamo element.
When I moved to Chicago I met so many stellar musicians & all of them were so fun to watch play & grow. They inspired me to keep working at music.
The progression of the chords, the distortion, the distance – you can feel the emotion of the piece from the overall energy of it.
