Amoeba Teen’s colourful blend of indie-rock & pop comes through with some uniquely interesting story telling on this latest release.
Boréal features a gorgeous collection of tracks, the sort that appear before you as colourful, expressive works of art, fusing genres & samples, instruments & effects, but more importantly – fusing emotions & moments that really take you by surprise.
Birchwood are doing whatever it was that certain bands were doing a decade or two ago that made them really seem fresh & carefree – unaffected by the industry or the rules or the expectations.
The concept & mood conjure up this dreamlike or other worldly sense of vastness & exploration, it’s fascinating, yet also rhythmically familiar & comforting to get into.
The project brings back the artist’s uniquely creative approach to music production. This is the work of a composer, a musical craftsman. The sound is so crisp & real yet equally smooth & dreamlike.
Mario Marco Farinato’s abilities as a musician are mesmerising, though it’s his passion or emotional input that really helps it shine. The experience is entrancing because the intensity rises & falls away in the most natural, deeply human manner.
Graveyard Dog is a great song, the sort you’d easily, happily return to again & again when scrolling through those comforting playlists we all accumulate. A pleasure to discover.
There’s a touch of underlying sadness, but it’s expressed only by means of a single line – the music is consistently bright & upbeat, the optimism unquestionable, adding to that energizing element & colourful ambiance that keeps you entertained.
The video is as bold as it is colourful, the same goes for the personalities portrayed of the leading ladies themselves. The fun & optimism is matched flawlessly by the sheer professionalism & attention to detail.
What a joy this is to discover. Just four songs full but overflowing with uplifting melodies, riffs, harmonies & hopefulness. The Pasadena Sessions is a gorgeous little collection of songs from a thoughtful, talented folk-pop artist & songwriter.
The song has been superbly well crafted. Despite the electronic edge of the music, the humanity of the piece is unquestionable. The leading voice has a mellow sense of wondering & passion, carrying the song’s sentiment brilliantly.
It’s great that the music is able to lull you into a comforted state, you can let the good vibes of the sound pour out & be an enjoyable part of your evening. It’s a clever way to get something out there, without having it weigh down too heavily on the listener.
