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.
Chicago-based artist and songwriter Daniel Cronson offers a smooth and soulful approach to music and performance in his own right, this latest release though sees him collaborate for what seems like a match made in heaven.
Streak Desperado provides a gentle and dreamlike backdrop on this single – the perfect ambiance within which the artist Pegasus can offer up his mellow yet conceptually intense lyricism, in an appropriately rhythmic yet near-spoken-word style delivery.
Pulsating rhythms are met with growling screams that all culminate in one of the sickest guitar solos of recent memory.
Shadowfields offer a delectable take on folk-roots and Americana with this single. Awake brings through a beautifully contemporary approach to Gypsy folk-rock music that feels rooted in strong songwriting and passionate, poetic expression.
That Kid Roy’s follow-up to Watch Me comes in the form of a four-track EP – Rookie Of The Year – smoothly produced and featuring an inherent sense of determination and confidence that relevantly links back to his previous release.
Shreya Preeti leads with a smooth and soulful vocal on this alternative pop-RnB fusion single Junkyard. The track, or at least the live version, offers an organic musicality that’s refreshing to witness – the performance in full is of a supremely high quality, and there’s plenty of passion connected to the moment throughout.
For a producer of any age this is an easy to escape within collection. For one as young as twelve, I’m excited to hear what the future will bring from Acidic Base.
Power to the people! The artists has the power in their hands now & its up to them to bargain & negotiate their own fate. 100% Independent! I love it!
Not until you’ve let the music rain down on you in full – which it does, the sound of rain is consistent – not until then does it really release you from the fast pace of modern life and let you realise the stillness of being.
The best thing about the world’s best bands is that they belong to a genre that never really dies. Tougher Than You Thought have released a solid, pounding, polished EP that points to the future of music worth actually listening to.
Musically the single works well in setting the right kind of vibe for cosy nights by the fire – the gentle groove has a calming energy about it; set it playing & get to work wrapping presents or writing cards.
