No effects or filler necessary – The Project tackles the topic of the opioid epidemic in a harsh and cutting way, reaching out in a manner that’s vague yet poetic enough to hit anyone with impact.
There’s something about this artist and this sound that just breathes innovation into the scene. At the same time, the softness and humble delivery of that leading voice is so quietly confident that there’s an additional level of realness and even something slightly endearing about the whole thing.
Artist and rapper vincent has released a small collection of original tracks in recent months – original being the key word right now; these songs hit hard for their musical output as much as for Vincent’s unwavering personality and strength during his bars.
Jenae Ailia creatively balances delicately soulful songwriting with contemporary sound design on this heartfelt and emotionally loaded new EP.
HazyJane shine brightly with a classic and comforting pop-rock sound on this latest EP. The conceptually framed project unites the four seasons – Temporibus being a Latin term for in the times or seasons.
“The song explodes into its final field, reverting back to this idea of the land of hope and glory, these references to death and suffering; the music is heavy and chaotic, vibrant and loud, and the vocal offers a similar level of madness and desperation as the words pour through.”
“What a stunning short journey, in a league of its own right now – following its own rules, making you smile, making you feel free from concern. Escapism at is finest. Creativity and professionalism have intertwined to a superb extent, and it pays off in acres.”
Absolute Doubt and Lucki collaborate to bring music fans a brilliantly dreamlike EP, fusing superb sound design with a laid-back and sleepy vocal delivery, creating the kind of late-night vibe insomniacs and those at the end of a long week alike will revel within.
A wide-reaching EP with some glorious high points and a journey that goes sonically all over the shop. Each piece feels like it has a narrative to exploit and each does this with great elan. Fine, refined work.
Maxime fuses an organic folk sound with a mildly theatrical performance style for this EP, paying tribute to effective and raw musicality as much as his family background in theatre.
In terms of genre, New Realms (that title is probably a clue!) is borrowing from all over the place. As well as the influences I’ve already mentioned, there is something of Ulrich Schnauss-era Engineers about the overall effect of the EP. It’s rich, imaginative, compelling and intriguing. It’s hard to imagine higher praise than this.
It’s a pleasure to hear music like this make a come back, it feels perfectly well suited to some reflective moment of cinema or TV drama, and yet it works equally well as the comforting embrace music fans often need on the long drive home.
