Rare Blend’s Ritz Murphy branches off into the solo world to present music fans with this impressively retro and colourful new track – one that effectively fuses classic boy-band tones with a notably more experimental, industrial style beat and set-up.

Awe hits so many sweet spots during its run time, it’s genuinely difficult not to keep hitting repeat as a reviewer. This makes me think real attention has been paid to the arrangement – there’s never a dull moment – and right up to the end, new colours are used to draw us in sonically. Great stuff!

Lonely builds and bubbles up in a perfectly emotional manner, right the way through until its ultimate, beautifully chaotic breaking point. A powerful and timeless track that brings together unquestionable purity and pain from the depths of the human experience.

In a world full of volume and unnecessary quirks designed to grab attention, songwriting and smooth, pure performances such as this have the ability to stand out and make a difference thanks to their realness and the clear talent at their core. Ride For You is a humble and beautiful release, a moment well captured.

Being a live performance recording, Deep Water has just enough rough edges to re-assure the listener that the talent on show is for real, and actually is playing live. Musically, the pre-chorus chords echo Eminem’s My Name Is, but influences aside, Elta Wave are exploring a soulful pop that has an indie edge and a nod to the 70s – courtesy of sound choices.

Jill has a sweet, bluesy voice, delivering the attention-seeking lyric with an authentic, slightly clipped enunciation that recalls the 1920s, all flappers and Lindy Hops! It displays wit, confidence and imagination in spades – and I hope lots of people get to hear this catchy little number, Because Jill Sargeant’s done a great job with it.
