“I dropped a tab of Acid and had just received the Masters for Avenue B, so that was playing in the background. I started getting the visuals from the music.”
Complete with a scheduled mini-series of accompanying music videos, ‘Avenue B’ offers a stunning collection of instrumentally masterful songs and passionate outpourings – each of which is as melodically addictive as it is cinematic and vibrant.
This entire EP is a simple joy, inspiring songwriting with a cheerful outlook and an undertone of truthfulness that’s well worth appreciating.
The songs pour through with their own sense of style, a certain fusion of genres, endless levels of passion & wonderful lyricism.
You get a sense this music comes naturally to the artist, which, combined with these folk-rock, acoustic ska rhythms & vibes, makes for a totally enjoyable EP.
One of his most intensely infectious riffs yet – a hard hitting, distorted synth set to wind its way into your consciousness in an instant. The track is heavy, ready to energize & uplift, the song’s subject matter leans in that direction too – offering motivation, a winner’s mentality.
Thoughtful words summon everyone to rise up from the depths of possessive & negative emotion, bolstering the idea that humans can indeed master their wild lions of passion. One can decide to swim in the dark & blame others for their emotional anguish, or Rise Up.
Exactly the band to make you remember what it is to be human. Every note is flawlessly hit. Every aspect of their sound is perfectly cobbled together to make a beautiful, terrifying, screaming, soaring single built to wake a generation asleep at the wheel.
Craymo is an artist embracing honesty to the fullest with his music. The term artist is important, his music is eclectic & forever evolving, his passion & connection to the process is consistently clear.
Taking a touch of John Butler Trio & a dash of something a little more pop-driven – Jason Mraz comes to mind – Jack Shea offers up a refreshingly well crafted, uplifting soundscape & melody for his unapologetically honest new single.
A huge collaborative project bringing together some of the UK’s best talents from jungle, drum & bass, reggae & dance. You get a sense of optimism & celebration throughout. The release is in support of the Demelza Hospice, UK.
A wonderful track for many reasons, not least of all the immediate fusion of nostalgia & originality that bounces through the air as you press play.
