With a dark & smoky, incredibly tantalizing voice, Sove melodically weaves her way through an EP that’s both entirely grounded & incredibly ethereal. There were points where I found myself floating away, lost in the depth of the music, lulled into a sense of mystified wonder in the chiaroscuro of Sove’s vocals.
The song in its current state is far from the wild dance track you might expect. When the vocals first fall away, a stunningly delicate riff descends before you, as well as a flicker of strings appearing in the distance – all of which adds to the depth & emotion of the soundscape as a work of art.
The song is humble, not trying to be anything other than what it needs to be, and in doing this – it introduces the artist behind it in a respectable, endearing & interesting way.
All These Thoughts is a beautifully expressive & musically satisfying album, built by an artist with an inherent ability & connection to the songs that he writes.
Eclecticism is the key throughout this short playlist, but in line with that is an artist with a definite string of individuality within her performances and her approach to expression.
Hurricane Irma was the worst hurricane I’ve ever been through. This experience has left an indelible mark in my memory. Personally, it made me even more resilient, more fearless. As an artist, I am more focused towards realizing & manifest my dreams. I cannot wait any longer. I must pursue this dream now.
As far as pop songs go, this is precisely the kind of piece you could expect to hear on various mainstream radio stations – the familiarity, the memorable nature of the hook, the concept and this underlying idea of togetherness; it all breathes life and optimism into the scene.
This idea of knowing what it’s like to be loved being the most valuable thing in life – something to be forever thankful for – is one that we could all use a little reminder of from time to time.
Swedish indie-pop duo I Am Nova made waves throughout the past year with their explosive live shows, and now – with the release of Good Enough – they rise even higher, showcasing some brilliantly infectious & energetic pop songwriting.
With each new listen to French 75, the more the details & the ambiance appeal – they sound increasingly original & enjoyable as you familiarise yourself with them, giving the song a touch of longevity; and drawing you in even further towards Alex Blocker as an artist.
This is why we turn to music in the first place, to seek out those moments in which the audio screams aloud for us, getting everything out in the open and relieving us of those inner struggles and confused feelings.
The concept is quite brilliant, I’m making it up as I go along is a line that undoubtedly will connect with so many listeners – we all at some point feel as if we’re doing exactly this, whether at work or in a relationship or in life in general. This central sentiment is represented well by the flair & vibrancy of the song in full.
