The Stifftones have chosen a quiet and genuine setting for this because the song itself is one that deals with personal, reflective ideas – a sense of being far away, isolated or alone.
Contrast is utilized well throughout this song, there are indeed instances of peacefulness and folk purity, but these are more often than not followed up by those which strike as a little darker.
Jenkins’ writing style takes you through the many experiences of life – the successes, the regrets, the little things that light up an average day. When combined with such a genuine and real-time folk-rock sound this lets the songs connect in an honest way.
There’s a progressive rock twang to this kind of writing style, though the song itself is decidedly gentle and leans more in a folk-pop direction than anything else. Woven Green ultimately have their own thing going on with this music, and that makes it a refreshing option to turn to.
Harris meanders between topics of intensity and those with a certain accessible lightness throughout this project. You never know where the journey will take you next, but always you can trust that a known level of creativity and professionalism will lead the way.
The world is beautiful, but it’s easy to forget that when things get noisy and difficult. This EP has been thoughtfully designed to remind you.
Singer and songwriter duo Benso&I offer up some gorgeously organic folk vibes on this version of Fiery Eyes. The simple strum of an acoustic guitar and a clear sense of space and warmth are all that’s needed to support the band’s beautifully united voices.
Fresh from their project Road Trip Mixtape, Stories is a song that introduces The Jon Johns as a band with a beautifully heartfelt approach to songwriting and performance.
The Wonder EP in full is a joy to have in your life. Rather than a playlist to explore for the sake of the artist, it’s one worth exploring for the sake of you – the music fan.
Her relentless creativity, unapologetic bluntness, and sincere storytelling are as inspiring as they are wholly original. Once I Was Loved, Acousticmaddie’s latest single, sees her unique style of sound art continuing to push the idea of music as creative expression.
What first emerges here as a simple folk sound, soon shows its true colors as a much more broadly influenced, heartfelt and warm presentation of stunning songwriting. Justin has built this with intention, and you can hear the various layers and intricacies emerging one by one as you make your way through the short collection.
Do yourself a favor, whether you typically like this kind of music or not, give this album a listen. I guarantee you’ll end up a fan.
