Jerad Finck is making waves with his music right now and this latest release, a SEAWAVES remix of his single New Kids, is helping immensely with creating that storm.
For Me deals with difficulties from the past & the lasting effects they can have on a person’s life. The lyrics are undoubtedly what grab you at first, the opening lines detail the where, the who & the what, and it feels like turmoil & sadness, but slowly you hear this being overcome.
Featuring a Fatboy Slim style of musical craft-work. The vibes are superb, each moment makes sense once it’s there, but never does any of this appear as the logical or usual next move – a quality you quickly come to love about Vox Eagle.
The whole thing utilizes these various musical stages to build something emotionally compelling & poignant around the listener. Great songwriting, original & intent on connecting in a pure & powerful way.
The beat and indeed the entire groove of this single Over It presents a sort of trip-hop-like aura, though admittedly with more of a constant sense of rhythm and solid progression.
The various vocal sections add further to the passion & creativity – the intensity & pace increases, the song starts to hit harder. The final moments are huge, a backing choir and a kicked up beat create beautiful chaos behind the artist’s soulfully meandering voice.
Things vary throughout, keeping you interested & creating something genuinely artistic & dramatic before you. It’s an interesting album in a number of ways, but it’s also quite easy to simply let play – a well suited project for those late nights that seem to never end.
Beautiful chaos.. the band succeed entirely in winning you over. For a mere two-track EP, Hectic is an intense & unforgettable playlist of pure musical power. saajtak is a name worth looking out for.
The lyrics are incredibly poignant, every line is important and says precisely what it means to say. There’s power in this, the power to impact and cause positive change – if only enough people can hear it.
The album reminds you to work hard, dream big, and stay focused. We all need this sometimes, and Noble offers it up in mass supply on this project, though he does so in a quiet & smooth way. A crisp & wonderful collection from a thoughtful artist clearly driven by positivity.
This album is made up of an immeasurable number of details & experimental layers of audio. Barendo strikes as both an artist & musician, able to take any sound or collection of sounds & craft something unusual with them. At the same time, there’s a lot of heart & self-reflection in the writing – the chaos of the music doesn’t replace the desire to connect.
The whole EP has a stunning smoothness to it & in fact, to listen in full is to get the feeling that this is all part of a single thought or feeling. There’s only six minutes to make your way through, but when it ends, you feel the loudness of that silent void quite intensely.
