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.
The artistic threads run deep, and still there are enough moments of melody and rhythm, along with intriguing, bizarre and memorable ideas, to keep it entertaining and holding tight to your attention right through to the end.
You get a sense that Lux Thugs follows his own rules entirely, but does so with skill and consideration. These bars are thoughtful, clever, honest and reflective – the music meets the needs of this conceptual depth brilliantly.
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.
This beat gives the composition a pulse, a notable level of humanity that drives things along. You feel as if the soundscape is slowly enveloping you, and that somehow your heart-rate is rising in the process – perhaps perfectly well encapsulating whatever it is that the word Dive conjures up for the listener.
Fusing an electronic, somewhat industrial beat with fragments of orchestral strings, topped off with a pair of sleepy vocals and distant hints of intensity and angst, the track is as bizarrely unpredictable as it is cinematically captivating.
Downer is an artist who drives with a sense of purpose on this latest single. Overgrow is a hard pill to swallow, but the sort that many listeners crave in times of personal turmoil and isolation.
The intensity rises throughout, but it’s been carefully crafted – it doesn’t overwhelm, it intrigues; with detail, pauses, nature, poetry, and a hypnotic sense of repetition that lets you fall deeper and deeper under its spell.
What Liebeskid does so well is build songs that are complete artistic expressions of certain ideas and feelings. The piano, the soundscape, the vocal tone and words, the melody – even the structure, the space, the stops and the starts – everything works as one to represent the underlying sentiments. Both of these songs are suggestive of an artist in a league of her own entirely.
Depression & anxiety are subtle but certain driving factors behind the whole thing, and as you witness the accompanying video – beautifully shot & focusing on the humanity of the concept – you gather a genuine understanding of both the vastness at the heart of the struggle, and the togetherness that can ultimately help ease the pain. A stunning new release with a powerful undertone.
The wonderful Alaska & Aurora return not long after their last single, to offer up what is genuinely one of the most beautiful songs of 2019 so far.
Reel Feels brings together a dreamlike ocean of synths and a lightly industrial beat on this latest, entrancing new single Sedona.
