There’s a familiarity in this style of seasonal writing, for sure, but melodically and indeed vocally there’s something enjoyably fresh about this new release. It fits the mold of the moment well yet it also presents an alternative option for those who’ve grown tired of the same old repeated classics.
The band manage to maintain a brilliantly skillful balance between intense levels of energy and a delicate emotional honesty; even vulnerability.
A smooth and melodic finger-style guitar, backed by smoky and honest vocals, weave a story of a whole life left to live, and the beauty of savoring the moment right now.
Blaze by Joe Gang is a powerful, beautiful, and deep cutting endeavor into a level of emotion seldom discussed in the rap and hip hop genres. The title itself a poignant reference to both smoking and the attitude of complete emotional withdrawal.
A perfect single, and an even more perfect band for any rock mix, Silver Citizen is sure to please anyone who enjoys the sound of music still played by real musicians with real instruments and actual talent.
Vapor Brain by Zora Graves is a grooving, melodic, existential masterwork. Equal parts bubbly and melancholic, with a solid exhibition of instrumental genius.
Throughout this album you’re reminded of the starting point of this holiday we celebrate, the religious aspects and the backstory – as well as the togetherness and love that it sees us all celebrate.
James K Ultra’s interests in audio experimentation & deep thought alike reach unique new levels with this single New Solution. Emerging as something of an alternative, electronic rock track with an edge of EDM, New Solution brings an intense level of energy into the room.
If you see Nordic Daughter billed to perform somewhere near you in the coming months, don’t miss out. The Path is a phenomenal album, one for the long term playlist for sure.
Nature’s Child are likely to get you hooked to their sound pretty quickly if you were once in any way connected to the alternative rock bands of the nineties & early noughties. Think Brand New, Jimmy Eat World – the former in particular when it comes to this single.
There’s an inherent connection between the voice and the words expressed by it, which seems like a simple touch but it’s something often lacking in modern pop – it’s also something that can’t really effectively be faked.
Raining down with precisely the euphoric qualities of classic, professionally crafted trance music, Thinking Of You is a stunning release that washes over you with more and more strength every step of the way.
