You’d be forgiven for wondering if this wasn’t a classic yet somewhat slept on Elton hit from yesteryear. Fantastic, a great song and really well captured for the recording.
What a treat to review such a well-realised and tastefully-produced song. Impressive, wide-screen, spacious, addictive.
Smart voicings and different little flourishes of colour illustrate a savvy pop nous that elevate the arrangement, with all elements earning their place in a mix that’s ever-evolving and deftly handled.
An intriguing build of a track, with interesting melodic exploration, a great vocal and accomplished songwriting. Nice!
“We have a proverb – ‘water does not flow under a lying stone.’ It means that if you are lazy you will not achieve anything. Therefore, working beyond strength – that’s the way the image should be.”
A far stretch away from the bells and over-production more commonly on display at this time of year. Joe The Bluesman leans towards the likes of The Pogues with this single, yet maintaining the opening acoustic purity throughout the entire lifespan of the beautifully thoughtful and appreciative Christmas With You.
Driving with absolute character, individuality, and a notably conscious approach to lyricism and songwriting, Magnitude 7 is a hip hop artist with a unique style and set of intentions to his music.
Always a master of capturing the precise moment and energy implied by a composition’s title, Ltronnika’s latest offering becomes something else entirely once you let the music rain down amidst thoughts of the Island Breeze that inspired it.
The energy varies throughout, in keeping with the changing lyrics, and though this evolution is subtle, it works well to keep things moving; to keep you interested, and to keep a level of colour and creativity at the heart of the journey.
Stunning, a perfectly well-crafted expression of frustration, sadness, and hope alike. Absolutely worth the time it takes to listen.
A calming, colourful look at life, and a positive reminder of both creative freedom and the importance of having fun, not taking things too seriously.
Singer and songwriter APOSTOLA presents the purity of acoustic performance intermittently with the dreamlike embrace of electronic production, alongside the unwavering honesty of intimate, unapologetic songwriting throughout this brand new EP.
