There’s a driving force about this that would let it suit the long road home as much as the early morning start – the calling card of a songwriter with strong audience awareness yet still a clear & concise sense of self identity.
Pietro Cottone tackles the world’s issues and his feelings towards them in an upfront and respectably honest way. These things affect us all, and this album is a stark yet great way to start the conversation.
The 3Mind Blight sound is quickly becoming a thing entirely of its own. Uncertainty reigns, but there’s a sense of possibility – a feeling that not knowing isn’t quite as bad as it sometimes seems. ‘It’ll be alright if I live a good life.’
They say it takes real life experience or struggle to write or create something that connects and refreshes contemporary minds – or any minds, for that matter. Patricians Come Down seem to drive with this sort of realness, injecting a hit of that organic, burban songwriting and expression into everything.
a truth called nothing are a collection of creatives who undoubtedly craft their tracks with a certain sense of freedom and a desire to simply express the inexpressible. Delicate moments are juxtaposed brilliantly by infectious, energizing hits of rhythm and weight.
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.
Lukas Pawluk’s album High Seas introduces an eclectic range of collaborations & sees the artist wander creatively through various sub-genres of rock & metal – all the while leading with beautifully poetic, compelling songwriting. This is defiantly a collection worth revisiting again & again..
That vocal tone and the style of these songs offers a distinct thread throughout, mood-wise though there’s plenty of eclecticism at work, and for these reasons the album makes for a wonderful playlist to escape within. A mighty follow-up to last year’s release.
David Alpha does his own thing, without question – from the songwriting through the set-up to the performance – he creates without rules, and it works.
The song doesn’t seek to divide further or to exclude anyone, instead it speaks of similarities, and it talks of the negative impact of feeding the fire – resolving again with the idea of us heading towards a bleak future unless everyone takes steps towards something better.
Can’t See You Without Me is a totally unusual and subsequently fascinating song that sees Voltanas pour his honest perspective into the process in a raspy and sleepy fashion.
There’s an entire cast of characters at play under the Pete Murphy artist name. Always a genuine treat to be entertained and indeed amazed by.
