The unmistakable sound of Ladonna Rama returns this month with a song that welcomes a dash of electric guitar and a notably more angsty, emotionally resentful tone that attempts to take back control and self-empowerment.
Hitting the scene with prolific songwriting and a plethora of ambient, creative tracks, Young Picasso has released hit after hit throughout 2020 so far, and rightfully shows no signs of slowing down.
Fresh from the upcoming mixtape inkytunes III, back then is a chaotic yet emotive soundscape and song, featuring soulful vocals and an overall rising sense of anticipation and energy that increasingly envelops you.
Another drop of fire from New York’s Blvff kicks into gear this week. Offering smooth vibes, lyrical optimism and engaging vocal rhythms, let me let go lifts the mood in an instant, and proceeds to dig deeper and deeper emotionally right the way through.
The soundscape and that leading voice evolve into operatic realms later on, leaning towards power-rock with multiple layers of passion and intensity intertwining; not least of all a beautiful and welcomed touch of electric guitar solo.
Uniquely blending softly atmospheric, ambient sound design, with organic acoustic guitar picking, and long-form, RnB-style vocal melodies, Freddie Bourne crafts an alternative pop sound and style all of his own with this new EP.
Five original tracks, dedicated to offering the depth of musical escapism & thoughtful, soulful performance. LENAR leads with a clearly contemplative nature, and the gentle ambiance & soulful, expressive delivery speaks volumes on behalf of this.
Hard Liquor is quick to satisfy (pun intended). A dreamlike soundscape, free from a beat for the most part, backs up a stylishly doubled vocal that hits with addictive rhythm and emotion.
Beautifully done. A personal favourite from the year so far and an unmissable hit for the UK hip hop and indie scenes alike.
Openly steering away from the majority of mainstream and even indie hip hop releases, 30.2much releases the hypnotically ambient and reflective C-Span – a song that connects for its intimate portrayal of deeply human emotions and experiences.
Blending a tripped-up, hi-hat-driven jazz beat, organic and easy on the ears, with a much more mellow-paced, smooth and soulful vocal line, Daydream celebrates love and intimacy in a refreshing way.
Initially adopting a classic radio show format, with high energy and carefree cut-scenes, Welcome to Forever progresses to be one of the most unexpectedly creative and interesting projects to emerge in recent months.
