A totally unexpected EP for so many reasons. The music alone makes for something you rarely come to experience anymore. As things progress, you’re introduced to more & more intricacies & traits of the character behind it all.
You’re likely to find these tracks popping back up in your mind repeatedly for the foreseeable future – the peacefulness of a subtle, gentle ear worm is far more enjoyable than that which forces its way into your consciousness. These are brilliant songs.
X-Rated is the jaw-droppingly explicit new single from artist & songwriter Jamar Germain. The title is undeniably true to the concept, and this is the perfect RnB-Pop crossover song to see music fans through to the upcoming brighter seasons.
There are numerous times throughout this project at which something completely surprises, really helping keep it appealing & enjoyable. This is an extremely personal, characterful album that also presents a lot of skill & thoughtfulness.
The lyrics offer a notably poetic string of images, a story that is slightly distant seeming, but that grabs your attention regardless. Certain lines stand out & further the haunting feeling – ‘I come to watch you die’ is a perfectly fitting example.
Hazzy E is an artist crafting her own unique take on pop & hip hop that is soaked in a certain sense of identity & originality. There’s a touch of the familiar in the style & swagger of Bitter – the rhythm, the pace, the passion & confidence.
The artist’s now familiar & comforting leading voice delivers the sentiment & the various stages of the song in a perfectly delicate, genuine way. The soundscape showcases a lightly upbeat rhythm & folk-rock energy.
Marcus Christ returns in 2018 to bring audiences a deeply personal track with multiple layers of vocals that help bring out the emotional intensity of its subject matter.
The musicianship is superb, as is the creativity. It’s the perfect meeting of the bizarre & the skillful, the unknown & the ever-impressive. The journey the audio takes you on is wonderful, weird, powerful & impossible to predict.
The song hits you as the sort of indie anthem that would have made waves not too long ago in the mainstream music world. Later on you get past that energy boost & vibrancy & you start to take in the concept more intently.
A brilliantly honest song that draws your affection with its lyrical approach to reality, to openness & to the inner turmoil we all feel from time to time. Dario Margeli has written from the heart while touching upon issues of the mind; it’s well balanced & it works.
The music is completely refreshing, familiar yet original in essence, loyal to the art that inspired it yet also indicative of a brand new sound. The only thing missing is to witness it all unfolding before you in real time.
