Randall Lee Richards’ return brings a huge anti-ballad of sorts, an emotional, powerful song with a strong country backbone and a concept that quickly moves from the aesthetically appreciative to the undeniably honest & concerned.
Their sound is refreshingly original, notably simplistic from a musical perspective, but impressive in its arrangement of language. Highly likely to make waves at a live show.
There’s an air of musical freedom to his sound but also one of deeply thoughtful writing – the introverted kind of expression that connects with the deeper parts of our existence.
A single that stands out by a mile for its metaphorical strength, its entrancing melody, and its immediately uplifting musicality – among so many other elements that really help it shine.
A stunning song, masterfully crafted so as to hold tight to your attention throughout, offering multiple layers of personality & openness that allow you to feel an immediate connection with the artist.
It’s a simple track, stylistically – there’s a delicacy about it, but there’s also an addictive sense of rhythm and good vibes that just satisfies.
A breath of fresh air, the details & the sheer satisfaction of that stop 7 subsequent re-start; there’s a fire about it all that you just don’t come across in such an alternative, heavy manner these days.
Cap’n Richie’s expression is loaded with unpredictability & simultaneous levels of identity. You recognise his work, you recognise Carmen’s uniquely stylish voice, and you just know you’re in for something with a little more vibrancy & freedom than the average dance offering of today.
BABYLON-X offers an undeniable connection to the art of musical composition & creative expression. To take something that inspired him, and re-mould it in a personal, new, effective way, showcases a fine set of skills. Well worth listening to at volume.
Musication Mondays fuses creative passion & work ethic, which is essential, and if this Monday’s single is anything to go by – music fans will be excited to tune in for these scheduled releases in the long term.
The rush of our routine connects to this concept of the rat race, not leaving ourselves free to consider the truth or to discuss ideas about the underlying point of existence. It’s a heavy topic, but they’re a heavy band & more than equipped to tackle it.
Things evolve in a natural way, the intensity rises & the performance switches to more of a rap at the height of that passion. The instrumentation grows more colourful and a little heavier in unison with this change.
