Gentlemen’s Crow – You Were Never Really Here Indie rock group, Gentlemen’s Crow, from St. Augustine, Florida has released the new single “You Were Never Really Here”.
The band consists of Cameron Moratis on Guitar and Vocals, Alex Sandlin on Lead Guitar, Mike Eyer on Bass Guitar, and Mark Rutski on Drums.

BLAND! shines brightly with this mix, giving us various different ethereal sounds and vocal snippets. The entire track is peaceful and melodic, especially at the start, although it switches up during the vocal parts, inflicting a different feel and pace. Urban grooves also intercept the track giving it a subtle party vibe, at times. There are times when you physically hear the track changing, adding an old-school nostalgic effect. The first vocal snippet focuses on class and worthiness which is then followed by piano chords which is suggestive of higher class. Other snippets focus on different subjects and guides the track throughout, whilst the ending feels final and abrupt. BLAND!’s ability to mix and create is beyond intriguing, so much so that the other volumes that have been released are certainly worth checking out.

Positivity in country music is always great to hear but the indie-rock elements mix up the track so much so that it makes it unique and interesting. There are also instrumental breaks throughout which allows the band to impress, with urban elements and earthy guitar chords. “Come and Getcha Some” is the first track of six from their debut EP, titled “Twisted”, which is out now.

Biig Juan is the owner of The BasemENT Studios LLC and he certainly knows how to bring it, and certainly doesn’t let us down. On the verses, he completely impresses, going in hard and delivering each word with perfect intonation, whilst the chorus soon becomes addicting, spreading self-confidence and intense concentration to his listeners. This is one for your work-out playlists or when you’re getting ready to start your day.
29-year-old British artist, As In Decorator explodes with the track “Fear2”, bringing a crescendo of instruments from the bass to the drums. Overpowering, but in the best way, with a deep strong vocal that melds into the sound eruption whilst still maintaining a beat and a melody.
The distorted vocal is full of echoing effects, whilst the backing track continues with a crash down domineering sound. Impressive nonetheless, this track follows up As In Decorator’s debut EP which he dropped at the end of June. The melody in this track will certainly stay with you, long after listening to it.
A rhythmic pop track embedded throughout this hip-hop number defies everything we’ve heard before as YT HellaKingin brings it with “Friday Night”.

Professing that he’ll “be there for you”, in the lyrics of the track, Positronic spreads love and positivity with the release of this song, “When You Fall Down”.
Positronic has been making music since 1988, so it is not surprising he is inspired by the likes of the Pet Shop Boys, Depeche Mode, and Erasure, which can definitely be heard within this track. Uplifting, inspiring, and elevating, Positronic sure knows how to deliver with this one.

Full of artistry, Josh Winiberg shines throughout with his piano which is further progressed by Alex Milne on the guitar and the Bergersen Quartet on the strings. It’s one impressive track that really shows how professional all three artists are. “Amor Fati / Love of Fate” really takes the listener away, through a series of artistic turns, for all of six minutes.
Jazz music always holds a secret power over all of its listeners, and Stephanie Sellars certainly knows how to draw you in, with her sultry tone to her vocal and the gorgeous piano guiding the song with a trumpet adding to the track half-way through.
“I Want to Be Bad” is a cover of the 1920’s song by Helen Kane from the musical “Follow Thru”, yet Stephanie Sellars not only makes it her own, but she also brings it into the 21st century, giving it a much-needed reinvention, whilst also doing it justice.
