Peter Senior gets set to kick off your Christmas this year with a fresh yet rightfully seasonal sounding single that’s easy to enjoy.
Colin Read has balanced warming pop-rock grooves with deeply reflective, endearing lyrics on this album – making for a collection that’s a joy to have play for you; both for its welcoming musicality & its unwavering realness & truth.
Gratitude & good vibes are at the heart of the song, and the band’s arrangement & performance fortunately delivers this in the best possible way.
The relationship & the descriptive nature of the lyrics at the heart of the song shout out for positivity & hold close to a blissful view of the world. As a modern day love song, it’s refreshing – classic yet new, poetic & accessible, and surprisingly (refreshingly) upbeat – the perfect contemporary country single to be shared between lovers.
Alexis is a project that has been compiled with care and professionalism alike – you can hear this in the music, alongside of passion and positivity, every step of the way. Gerred has put so much of himself into the album, and it works.
It’s a raw sound, it sounds live – something you don’t get too much of these days. You can hear the band in real time, and the unity between the bass, the guitars, the melody, and the drums – a brilliant performance on the drums – is easy to get on board with.
The song brings together professional performance and production, creativity, passion, and a topic that’s increasingly finding itself at the forefront of modern life.
Baker’s voice, and indeed the additional vocal snippets that accompany it, brings listeners a sense of vulnerability & confidence intertwined. It’s as if there’s absolute adoration at work – alongside of a sheer need to create music & express the feeling through art.
A song that is vulnerable, yet bold and has a strong message, but gets your toes tapping is always the goal when writing!
Very rarely in life do you come across an artist that has immeasurable levels of talent with an innate star quality that can’t be learned, and just know it’s only a matter of time until they hit it big. Kingsley is one of those artists – his self-titled debut is a master class of the pop-rock genre.
The set-up is superb, the music and the vocals are so united that it feels like a work of art, and genuine too. You can feel the emotion and the difficulty as the performance pours through.
It’s a relationship song with a twist, and the switch from the melancholy verses to the hopeful hook – it’s not too bad – makes for something that resolves in a satisfying way.
