Breaking Away is an immense joy to escape within. The sort of song that begs for you to turn up the volume, and quickly becomes addictive and close to impossible to forget about.
The very idea of What It Is is to address those fine qualities that mean so much to us but that aren’t always easily defined by language alone. Jimmy Lee Morris does a grand job of addressing and expressing this by means of a lightly colourful and easily recognisable new song.
My goal in Neon Dreams is to merge the past with the present. To engage my classical fans as much as my EDM groupies.
The entire video is enthralling from start to finish – a joy to lose yourself within, and well-crafted to the point that you really feel no need to distinguish this from (or compare it to) the original or other versions.
Electronic music doesn’t get much more immersive and interesting than this – particularly when crafted to such a unique degree, with the perfectly consistent presence of professionalism and a clear passion for audio escapism.
Something about the violin offers those traditional folk-rock vibes that make you want to head down to a live show at some Irish pub. To combine this with the already uplifting aura of a well-crafted, synth-driven EDM ambiance makes for something even more immersive and a total pleasure to listen to.
Carefully fusing a crisp acoustic guitar sound and a thick yet mellow drum-line, a uniquely recognizable hip hop backdrop supports this emotional rap flow and story-line from bich toe.
Musically the song feels rooted in contemporary pop-dance fusion, but it’s the structuring and the progression through the melodic vocal sections that ultimately grab the attention of the listener and make for something easily memorable.
Thousand Times’ return this year brings a gorgeously ambient and smooth RnB-fusion track with a softly soulful backbone. Seductively gritty vocals leads the way lyrically and melodically, running alongside a down-pouring of colourful synths and a sort of lightly throbbing energy level.
There’s a sense of identity to it, those contemporary hip hop layers are still present – the rhythm, the confidence, the leadership vibe and a sense of independence – but musically and indeed in the way POPMFS has structured this, the whole thing speaks volumes for originality and creative freedom.
Cross My Heart sounds beautiful, passionate & musically supreme. It’s memorable in a subtle fashion, not intrusive or irritating to have running through your mind – on the contrary, it feels soothing to consider the loyalty & love at the heart of the song; even with its turmoil & regret – that realness is everything.
What keeps this project united within its intentions and sentiments is a shared goal and a shared creative freedom when it comes to music. The EP is instrumentally eclectic, which is rare.
