IAMREBELWILL raises the bar beautifully with this latest release. Showcasing a stunning vocal style from the offset, and a soundscape and performance that gradually and artistically gather momentum and intensity throughout, Til The Sun Comes Down is as smoothly hypnotic as it is hard-hitting and energizing.
Fusing an electronic, somewhat industrial beat with fragments of orchestral strings, topped off with a pair of sleepy vocals and distant hints of intensity and angst, the track is as bizarrely unpredictable as it is cinematically captivating.
Featuring fine production and immediately appealing, creative artwork, NorsePreZ’ single EDEN starts off on a strong foot and continues to develop a sense of character throughout.
The Zzips are onto something special with their sound right now. Something To Break My Fall is a song that connects fairly quickly, and continues to strengthen those threads between the listener and the artist throughout the remainder of the experience.
Andy Jordan & producer Benedict Gibbon have crafted an absolute dream with this latest single. The smooth seduction of that bass-line & Jordan’s softly soulful, raspy leading voice pave the way beautifully – laying out an organic & engaging foundation, upon which the song in full can stand tall & hit with unquestionable impact as it pours through.
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.
