LVSTNIGHT’s debut EP combines dark story-telling with equally intense vocals and often unsettling, creatively unpredictable soundscapes.
Kicking into gear with a deep house vibe, fine production and a nostalgically big bass-line, Marquette King blends genres in a stylish, unexpectedly addictive way with this single.
Defiantly catchy, well-produced, somewhat nostalgic in style but fresh enough melodically and conceptually to give it a definite air of contemporary swagger.
Almost reaching the six-minute mark, this is a composition with direct, unwavering intention. There’s a story at work, and STEREOSIGHT have committed to expressing that by whatever means necessary.
Don Drago’s bars and his willingness to offer genuine insight, truth, and intelligent framing of ideas, helps elevate his music to greater peaks than the vast majority of his peers.
The accompanying visuals suit the changing mood of the track perfectly well – these colors being thrown around at the blank white canvas of a wall seems to pair up beautifully with the inner conflict and honest expression at the heart of the song.
Celebrating the power of collaboration, the strength of more minds than one, working in unison – Hooyoosay introduces an elusive and ever-changing group of musicians with a shared passion for creativity.
As experiments go, I’d rate this as a highly successful one: nothing feels like it’s been crowbarred in, and this respect for the material has reaped genuine rewards.
“The adrenaline that rushes through your body when the crowd reacts to you is something special. There’s nothing like controlling the emotions of thousands of people at the same time.”
Undoubtedly one of indie music’s best kept secrets. Escapism in its most pure and uninhibited state.
Effected vocals detail an intimate and somewhat harrowing story-line, laying bare a mid-album Nirvana vibe in many ways – these short phrases, rhyming couplets that kick hard and leave plenty of space for reflection in between.
A superb show of musicianship and composition combined. A pleasant, entrancing journey, which accompanies late night deep thinking as much as a quiet commute through the countryside.
