It feels partly like a ballad, a loyal outpouring of admiration and affection, yet partly also like a huge moment of togetherness for the music fans who crave this sort of build-up and drop during the later hours of the day. The balance has been really well captured.
Stockhom’s Himmelsgräns have been a breath of fresh air to listen to this week. There’s a certain humble and quiet quality to their songwriting and to this sort of synth-pop and gentle indie-rock presentation
Less important than the genre these days is the songwriting and what you put into it – how much of yourself you allow the music to present, how well structured it is, how easily it connects and entertains or lets an audience escape. You get a good balance of all of this with Cleaned Out.
It feels real, and this is why it’s so heartbreaking to listen to. The picture is being painted in front of you, as opposed to you being merely shown a photograph of it.
The music is humble, to an extent, as is the leading voice – you believe what’s being portrayed. That’s a pretty rare thing in modern music.
Great music isn’t enough to make it in today’s business since there’s so much out there. Networking is a necessity to reach new listeners & fellow artists.
