Gorgeously resolving after each fiercely emotional build-up, with this sentiment that reaches across the individual story & into the lives of the audience – ‘some have it all, take your time we’re not here for long’.
Mandy McMillan’s return this season brings a beautifully ambient, classic country set-up that’s quick to calm the room.
Always an act worth pausing for, though your stillness will be brief in this case – Shane Scarazzini aims higher than ever with an addictively energising, folk-rock knees-up entitled West Virginia Girl.
Driving with absolute strength of song-writing and a beautifully crisp, organic pop-rock set-up, Alex Su’s Open Call engages and uplifts in a gorgeously classic fashion.
Introducing a songwriter with a clearly extensive background on the scene, Long Distance Line marks a huge step forwards as a solo artist, and showcases a fine level of musical skill and song-writing alike.
Comparison is the lifeblood of most reviews, but apart from the nods to other artists and songs already mentioned above, Astoria sits quite comfortably in a an alt-country / rock / folk pocket all on its own. Leo Harmonay sounds very comfortable and accomplished in that skin and the breadth of his vision is impressive indeed.
Creatively taking its time to build & envelop listeners entirely, Crimson Calamity’s single Ghost proves an artistic & deeply emotive hit of story & song, with a powerful sense of humanity & depth at its core.
“Until we get tired of meaningless lyrics with beats that make you go deaf, our genre won’t be that popular.”
You can feel the stage-ready energy, and still the lyrics intrigue & draw you in closer. The song satisfies and refreshes, feels nostalgic & exciting in its newness all at once.
Country warmth and quality songwriting unite for this instantly likeable new single from Karen Lee Batten.
Capps loses himself in the moment with these songs, because, as the EP seems to explain, he lost a huge part of his life and his personality in experiencing the horrors of war.
There’s no end to the creativity, and these tracks do indeed showcase the very best of Eric van Aro’s musical journey over the past four decades.
