Grinded Grin hold nothing back and refuse to adhere to expectation or industry standards with this aptly-titled album Reset. Taking their time to craft uniquely ambient soundscapes around the listener, the band offer an original fusion of various musical angles and genres.
There’s something inherently likable about Jsy’s writing & his vocal tone. You get the feeling that his music is made from a sheer love for creating & for hip hop in general.
There hasn’t been a track yet from this creative that hasn’t fascinated me, or that hasn’t given off a careful fusion of so many elements that you just don’t seem to come across anymore these days. Absolutely a collection worth exploring.
What a track… Soul On Fire introduces the DeadEyeChokeHold sound with a superb fusion of gritty, soulful, hard hitting electronic rock and the songwriting style of a deep thinker.
When the songwriting jumps out at you much more boldly than the genre, you know you’re onto something good. SpoonFed’s B With Me is a song that gets better and better as it moves along.
There’s plenty of room in modern music for songwriters who put so much of themselves into their work – and who manage to maintain a clear and likable thread of individuality at the same time. Love, Future You is a joy to listen to in full.
Combining a vast horn section, a meandering bass-line, and a number of elements that form a notably creative electronic soundscape – the single Move, from Glorious, is one that makes certain to leave its mark the very first time you hear it.
Zak Ferentz writes and performs from a place of artistry and heart, and you can hear this in the music – authenticity can’t be faked in a manner that connects so deeply.
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.
My Imagination is a lovely collection that focuses in on precisely what the title implies – reaching out to the dreamers & deep thinkers among us & offering a warm embrace.
The band tackle infatuation & modern dating – the video highlights this further as they’ve gone all-in to craft a story-line with various scenes & details. Today’s ‘swipe right’ nation will likely relate.
So much of modern hip hop seems to revel in talk of nothing much, but there are undoubtedly those who continue to push to keep the intelligent essence of conscious writing at the forefront of the genre. The latter is what you’ll find here.
