The lyrics on this track are brilliant, the opening verse lays out a story-line of sorts – a personal narrative, delivered initially in a calm & quite melancholy manner; the monotonous daily routine seems to have lost its purpose & this shows in more ways than one.
The melody has a surprisingly indie-rock feel to it, as does the structure, though the leading voice appears as this electronically charged element that fits smoothly in among all that surrounds & supports it.
The specifics of the song lean in a number of different directions – snippets of jazz appear on occasion, a definite rock influence is hinted at within the drum line & the electric guitar parts.
Tir Nan Og’s fifth studio album is an absolute blast. The project fuses the energy & confidence of punk with the raw creativity & hypnotism of Celtic folk. Captivating story telling & stunning musicianship.
Bringing together a distinctly dreamlike array of songs driven with an emotionally connected leading voice, presenting each concept & melody in a way that really opens the music up to a string of new audiences.
The song is beautiful & would settle in confidently as the ‘our song’ for any number of couples in love. It’s personal & emotional, but the imagery & ideas are quite vague – so these instances can be applied to many listeners.
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.
