Leading with ambient vibes designed and destined to offer delicacy and calm when needed, NeilGrandeur’s latest single is one that uniquely balances subtle layers of hip hop, trip hop and pop in a softly dreamlike manner.
Fusing the delicacy of a seductive guitar tone with a compressed beat at a comforting pace, Dylan proceeds to offer an intimate, up-close and personal vocal line, which meanders through a simple melody; leaning softly towards hip hop in consistently effortless ways.
Won’t Let Go is an unusual track, but it plays this card with confidence and style. There are sudden moments at which the beat falls away, laying bare a change in melody, a change in tone and passion, and these help elevate the song to greater plains.
A trippy yet gentle delight, loaded with subtle contrast and full to the brim with artistic intent and musical awareness alike.
The way the music slowly but surely sweeps you off your feet is a finely tuned craft that’s been absolutely mastered here.
Roaming freely amidst the trip-hop, electro pop genres, balancing delicate EDM details with soulful, heartfelt vocals, and an overall dreamlike purity and warmth that quickly embraces listeners – the single introduces the Texas trio in a professional and likable way.
ALDEN GROVES drives with unstoppable creative passion on this latest project. Whatever you’ve heard from him before, Reality Check rightfully reignites a whole new vision of the artist at work.
A superb show of musicianship and composition combined. A pleasant, entrancing journey, which accompanies late night deep thinking as much as a quiet commute through the countryside.
Ever since the strength of their last album, the name has conjured up a noteworthy place to turn when musical escapism feels essential. This single breathes new life into the space once again, holding close to those recognisable qualities but adding more than a few notes of freshness at the same time.
Headphones on, volume up – the whole thing works its magic with intimacy and realness in an upfront, fairly addictive manner.
From SiMo’s consciousness to yours – Once Upon A Time is three and a half minutes of pure audio escapism.
