Having not intended to listen through the whole album in one sitting, the opening song on Charlie Christmas’s Weird Old Man was quick to change my plans.
There’s a poetic undertone to the whole thing, metaphors and imagery pour through, and the quieter moments lead entrancingly towards those with notable rhythm and vibrancy.
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.
Making sure to take the time to write something meaningful, something that connects and is relatable but presents itself in a new and profound manner – these are the qualities that give a song the strength to break through the noise, and these are precisely the qualities Chupapi offers up in his music.
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.
Harris meanders between topics of intensity and those with a certain accessible lightness throughout this project. You never know where the journey will take you next, but always you can trust that a known level of creativity and professionalism will lead the way.
There’s a subtle sense of rising energy – the lyrics, the very concept and title of the song, and the consistent movement musically throughout, all helps this calmness evolve into an incredibly uplifting mood.
An awesome gear change towards the half-way mark gives the song a real emotional edge – Dalton’s vocals and the surrounding instrumentation pour through with sudden grit and genuine passion, quickly recapturing any wandering minds and firmly reinforcing the evolving stages of the story.
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.
Daniel Angelus returns this year with yet another fully introspective, creative project. Act 1 offers further insight and a musically impressive leap forwards in terms of melodic progression, instrumental set-up, and lyricism.
Never an act to shy away from having a little fun when it comes to making music, United Duality’s latest single plays out like a short scene from a movie. The Spanish-inspired musicality offers a quickly entertaining sense of rhythm, then you get a series of lyrics – spoken dialogue & otherwise – and an unexpected structural progression that effectively places the composition in its own creative league entirely.
Liana&Moods thinks deeply on the world and her role within it, and this shows in her music – it connects with those thoughtful parts of us that like to escape into isolated consideration for a while.
