Downer is an artist who drives with a sense of purpose on this latest single. Overgrow is a hard pill to swallow, but the sort that many listeners crave in times of personal turmoil and isolation.
The intensity rises throughout, but it’s been carefully crafted – it doesn’t overwhelm, it intrigues; with detail, pauses, nature, poetry, and a hypnotic sense of repetition that lets you fall deeper and deeper under its spell.
What Liebeskid does so well is build songs that are complete artistic expressions of certain ideas and feelings. The piano, the soundscape, the vocal tone and words, the melody – even the structure, the space, the stops and the starts – everything works as one to represent the underlying sentiments. Both of these songs are suggestive of an artist in a league of her own entirely.
The artist $haun Porter impresses with entrancing soundscapes, effective melodies, and a notable sense of depth within his writing. This EP in full – Love Over Death – is conceptually considerate, often profound, and always deeply personal.
Depression & anxiety are subtle but certain driving factors behind the whole thing, and as you witness the accompanying video – beautifully shot & focusing on the humanity of the concept – you gather a genuine understanding of both the vastness at the heart of the struggle, and the togetherness that can ultimately help ease the pain. A stunning new release with a powerful undertone.
Paul Wetz’ new release this week is a track that offers an immediately uplifting hit of escapism not unlike the work of The xx – though with a notably fuller, deep-house driven backdrop; and a refreshing concept and melody-line.
Reel Feels brings together a dreamlike ocean of synths and a lightly industrial beat on this latest, entrancing new single Sedona.
A totally unexpected yet wonderfully appealing new release from an EP that’s well worth looking out for. A great track, and straight in the long-term playlist.
Though there’s ultimately an admirable level of depth to this track, and to Money Bagz’ musical approach in general, the song from a distance is an easy anthem or hit that’s a pleasure to let play.
What You Doing is immediately likable, that opening clap for a beat and the space around it, Patrick’s voice, the melody – there’s a quickly satisfying pop glow to the song; as well as a notably alternative, uniquely creative musicality.
What begins as a simple, ambient piece of music and performance, acoustic and spacious, nearly whispered yet melodically beautiful in itself, soon evolves to become something incredibly passionate; and quite striking in a whole new way.
The unison between the riffs and the vocal melody is quite stunning, and with that an overwhelming sense of space allows the central strengths of the music and its concept to stand tall in a natural and beautiful way.
