Driving with a five-minute epic that feels all at once like retro grunge and contemporary electronic rock, Yellow Majesty hit the scene with passionate songwriting and sound design alike.
Reflecting on regret, having let someone go who you perhaps shouldn’t have, Maini Sorri’s new single Through Teary Eyes could be the perfect accompaniment to much of the longing & melancholy that is swamping many an isolated individual’s heart at present.
Drenched in optimism, reverb and vocal soul, Ogge’s Coming Back Around is the summer dance anthem EDM and pop fans deserve.
Stylishly blending powerful soundscape design, with equal parts melody and screams, the track offers a compelling narrative that provokes thought and simultaneous furthers the eerie, unsettling aura of the ambiance.
I think people turn to heavier music to find truth, understanding and to be a part of something real. Rock and metal music usually tends to be honest and upfront about issues and situations and circumstances, instead of being about “what do people want to hear?”
Line undoubtedly is an act set on stirring things up lyrically, offering what no artist has before, and doing so under a professional and skillful musical light. Shocking, uncomfortable, chaotic lyrics ride alongside of pristine ambiances and melodic purity.
Channeling Avici-style vibes, Take Me Back is an uptempo adrenalin-soaked rush through the sort of nostalgia-soaked lyrical adventures that have done very good business in recent years.
The variety and the crisp finish throughout this album helps make it perhaps the strongest and most engaging release of Maini Sorri’s yet – something that proves to be increasingly likely the further into the playlist you get.
As an introduction to producer LinusF’s creative work, Inspiration is a beautiful, uplifting and engaging soundscape that simultaneously pays tribute to the late Avicii in a rightfully colourful, emotive way.
Vocally, Jasmine Kara is up there with the best of them. This and indeed all of her previous releases to date showcase incredible vocals – the sort that can meander in a free and effortlessly skillful manner, through moments of quiet and softness to those that need to hit with a little more volume and passion.
Her relentless creativity, unapologetic bluntness, and sincere storytelling are as inspiring as they are wholly original. Once I Was Loved, Acousticmaddie’s latest single, sees her unique style of sound art continuing to push the idea of music as creative expression.
Sleep Pills seeks to let the artist feel understood, but at the same time – it reaches out to understand those who live in a similar way; those who consistently burn the candle at both ends. It works well in this respect, becoming the kind of alternative anthem to make isolation feel less unsettling.
