This is, ultimately, a powerful and a quite stunning piece of writing and performance, that builds up and falls away gorgeously. The rest of the album appeals all the more so for the purity and realness offered up here.
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.
It’s a pleasure to hear music like this make a come back, it feels perfectly well suited to some reflective moment of cinema or TV drama, and yet it works equally well as the comforting embrace music fans often need on the long drive home.
Gorgeously cinematic guitar tones meet with folk-like story-telling and stunning harmonies on this latest EP from Night Market.
There’s a progressive rock twang to this kind of writing style, though the song itself is decidedly gentle and leans more in a folk-pop direction than anything else. Woven Green ultimately have their own thing going on with this music, and that makes it a refreshing option to turn to.
The music lights up the room by the end, the two singers uniting to stunning results, backing vocalists and dashes of additional instrumentation helping underline a sense of togetherness, of oneness – again, in stark contrast with the isolation and quiet from the beginning.
A gorgeous yet short playlist that brings forth a band with a heartfelt approach to songwriting and an unquestionable talent for performance.
Life As Mary have captured lightning in a bottle with their new single. ‘Jacki’ is a song you’ll want to blast in your car on a sunny day with the windows rolled down.
Introducing a brilliantly effective balance between colourful, pop melodies and a raw-rock musical set-up, Too Much Saturn’s Blame Game is made even better thanks to superb and thoughtful songwriting.
Sons Of Silver present stunning rock vocals and a seductive blues-rock groove on this latest single. Never Enough is easy to love, a smooth track with a slightly eighties-style hook melody but a gritty and crisp instrumental set-up that lets the live-vibe shine through.
An unexpectedly addictive new song that’s easily a personal favourite for the year so far. Fusing somewhat theatrical, haunting musical building blocks, with a classic soft-rock aura, and an indie vocal that leans towards the poetry and passion of soul, the whole thing feels familiar yet unusual.
The Zzips are onto something special with their sound right now. Something To Break My Fall is a song that connects fairly quickly, and continues to strengthen those threads between the listener and the artist throughout the remainder of the experience.
