California’s Little Sister leads with a finely polished indie-pop set-up on this single, presenting a few distinct riffs, a notable drum-pattern, and a softly whispered vocal melody that somehow cuts through the weight and rhythm surrounding it to drive with intention and purpose.
“(Tech) has lead to some talented people getting recognized who might otherwise not have been, but it’s also lead to an inundation of “talent”. So instead of seeing a newer DJ who has had to practice, invest money & time into his or her art form, we are left with DJ John & Jane Doe who own a Macbook, downloaded free beat matching software & are essentially running their iTunes playlist in front of a crowd.”
Kid Loose manages to balance a clear understanding of music with a sheer passion for melody and originality. World music meets with the entrancing rhythms of house to produce something completely immersive and beautifully uplifting.
The sort of alternative, unexpected pop hit that listeners will take as their own – the kind of song you’re drawn to and naturally assume was written for purely you.
The performance stands out for the passion and character that’s presented throughout. In the same instance, the music is so laid back, but it pays tribute to the classic, simple yet hard-hitting riffs and beats that played the backdrop to some of hip hop’s more historical classics.
Producer Cailo succeeds in crafting her own sound entirely with this latest release. Time And Again is beautiful, an EDM-pop fusion track on paper but something much more eclectic and emotional in essence.
Wendy Ho is fantastic on this latest single and remix Anyone Can Break Somebody’s Heart. The nostalgically retro dance vibes that pour through are enough to get contemporary and classic clubbers alike feeling the need to move.
Gentle riffs echo around the outer layers, as do fragments of that recognisable vocal, and meanwhile the beat keeps things moving – subtly, allowing the track to maintain its peacefully chaotic vibe.
The song’s hook is beautifully upbeat yet miserable at the very same time, it uplifts with that hit of reality & the sudden musical brightness. Linda Tourje keeps things real & this song is quickly becoming a personal favourite as Christmas draws nearer.
While the sound of this project has a fairly classic feel by nature, there are several ideas that offer something a little left of the expected. Anderson’s story telling & his own honesty & often vulnerability fuse beautifully to lead the listener through a series of deeply thoughtful, poetic moments.
There’s something authentically original & creative about Acharya’s music – a sort of uninhibited, artful yet honest & deeply human aura comes through. Hopefully this is still just the beginning for them. In any case, Tilt is an EP absolutely worth the time it takes to listen.
This is why we turn to music in the first place, to seek out those moments in which the audio screams aloud for us, getting everything out in the open and relieving us of those inner struggles and confused feelings.
