It’s always commendable when artists put in the consistent effort & attentiveness to complete a full length project like this. There’s so much more to relate to & to get lost within on an album, as opposed to a shorter EP or single.
It’s a sound that brings you home & comforts you, readying you for the well-polished whisper of Joe Bailey’s voice as he carries you through a love song you can’t help but love back.
For a soundscape made up primarily of voices & a uniquely thick, organic big beat, Shadows Fade is a surprisingly atmospheric piece of music & writing that’s an easy joy to listen to.
Having instantly caught the attention of music fans & critics alike at the start of this year with his single Your Eyes, his newest release, Could You Be The One is considerably EDM-pop driven & easily his best track to date.
Project North, having already connected with several key players in the industry as they’ve grown into the artists they are today, are perhaps paving the way for the UK EDM movement, with releases such as their latest single Think Twice.
Sam Xhri6 is an artist whose sound fits beautifully into the modern RnB-pop-fusion world as well as offering a distinct level of character & freshness that really helps this latest single shine brightly.
When I was writing the song, I was wishing so desperately that I could change the way my mind worked. I feel so often in my life that my thoughts are miles ahead of my actions & I’m just dazed in a mess of overthinking. That’s why I wanted to slow down.
It feels like a familiar or recognisable, quirky pop-dance track, perhaps one from a slightly simpler time. There’s a touch of Daft Punk to the style of the progression & to that generally retro mood & vocal sound.
