There hasn’t been an RnB or soul singer with something quite so unique and genuine for a while now. Of course you never know what that unique trait will be until you hear it, but this is it; without a doubt.
I’ve been shaped directly from my personal experiences. I’ve been very fortunate to grow up in two different countries & cultures. I believe it makes me a more well rounded individual but a confused one at the same time.
As far as independent music goes, the dedication, skill, and sheer enjoyment of the craft doesn’t get much clearer and more enjoyable for an audience than this.
The whole thing feels like an easy classic, an alternative pop offering that takes influence from the best corners of musical vibrancy.
The music inspires you to be joyful and to go after those things that matter. The New Starts Now seem to have this quality of uplifting, inspirational songwriting inherent in all that they do.
The rhythm has something awakening about it, though the leading voice and the synth choices, even the harmonies, all add a contrasting level of lightness and softness.
The chord progression & the organic swagger of the instrumentation create something cool & thoughtful. All of this accompanies the softness of the vocal delivery, these almost whispered moments captivate entirely.
Their sound is refreshingly original, notably simplistic from a musical perspective, but impressive in its arrangement of language. Highly likely to make waves at a live show.
The first thing to strike about That Kid Roy’s music is the sheer clarity & speed of his leading vocal delivery. In an arena loaded with mumble-rap & uninteresting repetition, his voice stands tall among its peers.
As a grown man who still listens to Bowling for Soup & (Old) Fall Out Boy every single day, I give you my word that you OWE IT TO YOURSELF to hear everything this band has to offer.
The music is immense, the hook is familiar in an instant, and so when the energy reaches that peak you can barely contain your inclination to sing along. It’s a mighty song made all the more powerful by its delivery.
Taking a crucial splash of nostalgia & fusing it with fresh vibrancy, Bury Me in Lights seek to surround you with high energy anthems – perfectly crafted for the thoughtful souls out there.
