The long-awaited EP is finally here. Anxious Heart brings together five uniquely expressive recordings that each work hard to build a finished journey that’s as meaningful as it is enjoyable.
DeeCiii leads with a laid-back sense of rhythm and optimism on this latest single, offering up the blissful good vibes of a delicately crafted soundscape, along with a string of calming vocals and a clear sense of intention and character.
The single has great character, those opening moments are superb – feeling ready to grace the scenes of a Tarantino flick or a Bond film. An easy hit with a brilliant rhythmic set-up – likely to be well worth experiencing at a live show.
What works well about the completed piece is the way the music builds and builds throughout – beginning with a simple, piano-led moment of purity, rising up into the full embrace of dance as certain playful instrumental breaks pave the way.
Mi Amor is a quickly entrancing, calming piece of music, with a complex, long-form melody line that allows the singer to express freely and to showcase the best of his abilities in a natural way.
Browning’s voice delivers flawlessly throughout, whether the moment is heavy or much softer – his vocal style holds that ability to cater to the needs of the song, and this carries it well. The story-line is fascinating and the music lets it work its magic in a natural way.
As an introduction to Starchild, the song does a fine job of offering something new, professionally crafted, creative, and easy to connect with. That fusion of sadness and positivity is addictive, making fans of the track highly likely to return again and again to experience it.
His dedication to Halsey seems to bring out the best in his work, and this remix makes for a strong alternative to a pop track and effectively pushes it out towards the numerous sub-genres of EDM.
Every bit as hypnotic and powerful as any of the best pop ballads from the past couple of decades – perhaps even with a slightly more compelling, alternative and genuine edge.
Released in honor of 2019’s Earth Day, Midas is a beautiful ode to a planet that holds so much wonder and magic. At the same time, it’s a mildly chaotic walk through a history of greed and pain – these conflicting concepts are represented cleverly, through lyrics and musical unpredictability alike. The soundscape feels partly hopeful, partly unsettling – skillful production lets these qualities rightfully walk hand in hand.
Janna Pelle pays tribute to existence and the unpredictability of death with this latest single, reminding listeners to live life to the fullest as time as not a guarantee for any of us.
Sean Austin’s latest single lights up the room with a quickly uplifting melody, a musically bright soundscape, and an underlying concept designed to inspire and motivate.
