Not only does his voice offer a subtle yet striking sense of purity & realness, but his words, the simplicity of his music – in contrast with the complexity of these poetic reflections on love & life – it allows you to turn it up loud & completely escape into the moment, feeling as if you understand; or you’re being understood.
This album proves itself to be a totally unique and consistently interesting project, reminiscent of some of the great hip hop acts from yesteryear – not just the bars, but the music, the melodies, the concepts.
Fresh from the project Cheltenham Calling, Failure Of The Family is a notably personal and revealing song that lays out The Darkhounds’ songwriter under an honest and somewhat vulnerable light.
As an introduction to Starchild, the song does a fine job of offering something new, professionally crafted, creative, and easy to connect with. That fusion of sadness and positivity is addictive, making fans of the track highly likely to return again and again to experience it.
Music and art are incredible vehicles of change with the potential to influence our culture and society. And there’s so much to write about, an endless amount of possibilities, and yet most artists limit themselves to writing about the same few themes that everyone else writes about.
His dedication to Halsey seems to bring out the best in his work, and this remix makes for a strong alternative to a pop track and effectively pushes it out towards the numerous sub-genres of EDM.
Im14 offers up two straight minutes of alternative edge and artistry with this latest release. Wow That’s Deep is fairly certain to be unlike anything else you’ll have heard lately, and yet with that there are definitely some accessibly familiar and strangely comforting aspects that provide a sense of comfort.
Released in honor of 2019’s Earth Day, Midas is a beautiful ode to a planet that holds so much wonder and magic. At the same time, it’s a mildly chaotic walk through a history of greed and pain – these conflicting concepts are represented cleverly, through lyrics and musical unpredictability alike. The soundscape feels partly hopeful, partly unsettling – skillful production lets these qualities rightfully walk hand in hand.
Janna Pelle pays tribute to existence and the unpredictability of death with this latest single, reminding listeners to live life to the fullest as time as not a guarantee for any of us.
Immy talks of his demons and being kept awake all night, presenting flickers of detail and further intimacy as the story unravels, but all the while there’s a sense of positivity to the sound and the chord progression – even to his vocal delivery.
California’s Little Sister leads with a finely polished indie-pop set-up on this single, presenting a few distinct riffs, a notable drum-pattern, and a softly whispered vocal melody that somehow cuts through the weight and rhythm surrounding it to drive with intention and purpose.
While there are dashes of recognizable, contemporary hip hop in the vocal effects and the beat, this considerate core seems to stand taller than that, so from the offset you get an image of LA$ka as fairly poetic and more of a deep thinker than most.
