Why Can’t We Pretend undoubtedly sees Sharon Lia Band at their most creative and beautifully emotive. Powerful in essence and perfectly well captured so as to let that strength really stand tall.
Fusing a thoughtful ambiance, partly electronic, partly organic, with a freely meandering, softly soulful vocal, Beauty In A Wicked World is a trip-hop lover’s dream – and a stunning few minutes of superb escapism for fans of blissful soundscapes and poetic songwriting alike.
Josh Elliott’s creative angle is one of a sort of humble artistry, there’s a story to be told, a feeling to be dealt with, and he lets the music do all of that on his behalf.
Addisyn Chafé’s Burn In Me is stunning, a beautiful introduction to the artist and a powerfully emotive song in itself. Looking forward to the EP release on March 1st.
Aiden Hatfield has created a community around his sincere take on depression, and his latest single, ‘This Horror In Me’ is not only an absolutely fantastic rock tune, but also an honest depiction of dealing with such daily struggles.
The concept is one of conflicting desires or belonging in two places at once. It’s a thought provoking story-line, and Fernweher presents it in an effectively fascinating manner but one that’s also musically satisfying and refreshingly original.
There’s a humble air of authenticity to this album that makes it a reliable and deeply appealing project. Font Leroy is not out here shouting for attention or desperate for views. Instead, he’s making music that means something to him, that he himself is a fan of, and for these reasons the entire album works perfectly.
An incredibly unique and fascinating song – from an artist with an original sound and a creative approach that seems free from concern or direct influence.
What a great track, quickly entrancing and addictive in everything from the natural groove of that tribal-like beat to the cool and calm ear-worm quality of that leading vocal line.
Lauren keeps things real in an almost spontaneous, in the moment fashion, and by doing this – she allows the song to build bridges towards any number of listeners; those who have unexpectedly found themselves caught in a whirlwind of deep thoughts, questions, and uncertainty.
It’s almost as if you’ve caught the artist at the height of this emotional turmoil, which makes it seem very real.
Not only is the song brilliantly put together, it’s fascinating, it sees the artist open up from the offset and be fully himself, and it deals with a topic that rarely gets touched upon in music and art – at least not under such a professionally impressive light.
