Making sure to leave the flickering repeat of that word lingering in the room after listening, Donte Nphatic leads with confidence and colourful chaos on his new single Anime.
An accomplished mix of rigid discipline, sound songwriting and fab musicianship, All Night Long boasts savvy production, compelling vocals and memorable moments aplenty. Nice.
Balancing a fine ear for tuneful progressions, an accessible & easy going, romantic story-line, and a beat that leans back & forth between acoustic world vibes, dance-hall, and classic pop, Mira is an addictive new hit that’s as seductive as it is energizing & catchy.
There’s a whole lot of emotion here, and this is what the song is – every aspect works hard to portray the weight of relationship struggles and false impressions.
Structurally thoughtful, classically colourful yet fusing elements of hip hop, RnB and pop in a fresh, contemporary fashion, the single offers up the rhythmic kick of rap alongside of the addictive and anthem-like power of a mighty hook melody.
The band set things up with style, progressing with endless levels of flair & ability. Their unity is on form, the music is ready & waiting to be that addictive little anthem that gets you geared up to take on the world with the best possible energy.
Stunning vocals, simple yet effective, passionate and emotive – these ride along the top of a professionally crafted soundscape that showcases a somewhat humble yet impressive gathering of musicians.
The Blankz are beginning to become something well worth tuning in for as a go-to soundtrack and indeed an unmissable live band – hopefully next summer sees Festival season scoop them up.
The details work well, the carefree storytelling style seems to make everything seem OK – as is the role of punk rock, to normalize volume & chaos or at least to draw attention to it & create a shared understanding.
A two-track bonanza, set to immediately take many listeners back to their teenage years – when punk-pop was the soundtrack to our carefree lives.
Jonathan Cavier’s recordings have an immediate & reliable warmth & vibrancy about them that you can return to again & again.
The hook is strong, bright sounding & memorable. The words are easy to learn & the result is a very heartfelt & thoughtfully crafted song.
