“I want to show my own pride as well as foster inclusion, acceptance, and awareness. I’m extremely passionate about that.”
Richard Schroder excels himself with this single. Beginning with that ever-professional, crisp & organic country sound, We All Start Somewhere progresses to captivate brilliantly, with detailed, fresh story-telling, and a fine balance between scene-setting & emotional honesty.
“Concision is good. Direct is good. But it’s easy to see how this environment can create a sort of fast-food attitude towards songwriting in a pop industry already fully of empty calories.”
Beautifully set-up, beautifully written, flawlessly performed. A lovely new single from an artist who rightfully shows no signs of slowing down.
Enzo’s attention to detail, backed up by a clearly emotive and heartfelt way with sound design, makes for an easy go-to when escapism or the warm embrace of volume is all that’s on your mind.
I think this song is quite brilliant. It’s entertaining, layered, engaging, wears its empty heart on its sleeve and is all the more powerful the more you think about what you’ve just heard.
For a track supposedly made by accident, Ygor Sunny’s Guillotine is brilliantly engaging and beautifully hypnotic for the extent of its short-lived, one minute twenty five second life-span.
With some decent exposure, I could imagine Let Me Know appealing to a very broad demographic: it’s a confident slice of hip-hop that ticks all the lifestyle-centric tropes of current on-trend bangers. It feels mature and authentically honest without being too knowing or too cynical, and deserves to be shared around.
Songwriter and artist Almost Owen pays tribute and appreciation to meaningful, lasting friendships with his latest release. For those with a love for pop-rock anthems and uplifting music in general, One Lucky Man is an easy must.
Howl! offer such honest ideas & even vulnerabilities, as well as reflections on life, love, and everything in between – all while continuously impressing musically & vocally. The sound is everything it needs to be, and a live show would almost certainly prove unforgettable for contemporary & classic rock fans alike.
This isn’t purely about the singer, or the songwriter, or the musicians at work – this is about the artists and the audience alike. This is a shared moment of calm, of complexity simplified, and everything from the overly colourful yet smooth presentation to the lyrics and the vocal delivery works well to represent this at every step.
What works well about the completed piece is the way the music builds and builds throughout – beginning with a simple, piano-led moment of purity, rising up into the full embrace of dance as certain playful instrumental breaks pave the way.
