Lilo is so stunning on self-aware ‘Running in the Rain’

UK singer-songwriter Lilo is so stunning on ‘Running in the Rain‘ and sings with growing confidence and is always elegant.

With a voice that is hauntingly beautiful, Lilo is one of those genuine souls that loves making and performing her music to hungry hearts. Her vocals are tremendous, never too much and she is one determined young lady. After learning how to play the piano at aged 4, guitar at 8, songwriting at 13, singing lessons started at 17. She clearly loves music and learning new things so that she can immerse herself into the peaceful indie-pop sounds.

This is a song all about learning to enjoy the present rather than wishing constantly for the future and reaching your end goal. This is such a true predicament and something most of us battle with each day. Living for the moment is the way to go instead of over-thinking everything.

Running in the Rain‘ from Lilo is a lovely indie-pop pure song full of lovely energy that grabs your attention. The Yorkshire-based music is a huge talented and the music is so great to listen to.

Tyler Hunt sends us the perfect disco-house dazzler with ‘Steal Our Love’

Tyler Hunt sends us the perfect disco-house dazzler with ‘Steal Our Love‘.

Tyler Hunt is a pop artist who’s first internet success on something completely unrelated to music, his Halloween channel, HTJ halloween, spawned a music career that is gaining more and more momentum as we speak. The vocals are effortless and smooth with a beat that is so splendid that you dust off your old party shoes. Those smart ones that make you slide.

This is a singer-songwriter who is making music on his laptop, putting his ideas into action. With a lot of artists awaiting the studios to open up again during this horrible pandemic, Tyler is instead ahead of the hungry pack, his focus can go on getting big festivals instead of recordings when things get back to normal.

Steal Our Love‘ from Tyler Hunt is a scrumptious mix of electro-pop pureness and this is a song to dance to. All night long.

Seaker sings with such elegance on the awe-inspiring new single ‘You’

Seaker sings with such elegance on the brilliantly-made and awe-inspiring new single ‘You‘.

After growing up in the North East of England in the UK, Kiran Hungin is a singer-songwriter with a mysterious feel to her. She doesn’t post much on Social Media and makes incredible music that is made so well. This is a proper singer, not worried about the glitz and glamour, she only wants to sing and inspire those around her.

“I try to make music that is epic and delicate at the same time. I love those spine-tingly moments when there’s an emotional twist in a song or a tiny whispered vocal moves into a huge layered block of sound. I think for a while I associated art with sadness and only took something seriously in an artistic sense if it was melancholic. That shows still in how I write, though I also feel very full of hope and wonder, so it’s not all doom and gloom.”

This is a glorious song, full of high notes and made with so much love. Seaker sings with such beauty which is often lost in this burnt world that needs a lot of tlc. ‘You‘ is a stunning effort from the UK singer who has a voice that puts you in a different place. I feel relaxed and the world seems a bit safe thanks to this terrific track.

Ask Carol swim in with the sunny ‘Do It in LA’

Ask Carol swim in with the sunny ‘Do It in LA‘  and this is a radical video from this fresh band who do things differently.

From beautiful Auma in Norway, alt-pop duo Ask Carol have toured the world and this is an act that are on a mission for their music to be everywhere. Covid has slowed them down a bit but perhaps its given them the extra time to get more music and awesome videos together for release.

Ask Carol is front woman Carol and also multi-instrumentalist Ask. This fine 2 piece act challenges the traditional conception of what a duo can be. With their powerfully portrayed guitars, drums and fuzz-synth, with Carol’s distinctive, dynamic range and bad-ass vocals, this two-piece creates a wall of sound that is truly great to listen to. They have so much energy, I like the sound of the band and the vocals wake up your heart right away. This is genuine music that is made with such caring precision.

Ask Carol rock in with the brilliant ‘Do It in LA‘ and this is a fine listen. The video is so great and viewers will enjoy the creative nature. They are pushing the boundaries and not trying to copy anyone else.

Gold Coast singer Amela hits all the right notes on her ‘DNM’

Australian alt-pop singer-songwriter Amela hits all the right notes on her brand new song called ‘DNM‘.

With a glossy start, the sultry vocals soon flow into place to make beautiful pop music. The production is tight like a tiger and the claws come out when you scratch deep into the song. I feel like this song relates to millions around the world right now. That human touch and real chat energy is so low right now as the world digs itself out of this mess of a year.

The beat is scrumptious here and the vibe is a party starter. The house style with the fantastic glossy vocals adds a wild twist to the alt-pop genre, Amela sings from the heart and the results are so lovely for the soul.

DNM is really about a yearning to talk to someone about all the things on your mind.. to go deep and within. I hope that y’all have someone you can talk to about all the things on your mind.” This is a such a great message and you can tell that this is a genuine musician, one that cares about others.

Amela slides into our heart with the brilliantly constructed ‘DNM‘ and this young Gold Coast artist is swimming nicely through the waves and gets a few barrels here. This is a great song, full of love and heart which is perfect for 2020.

Atlanta band Rujen are quite brilliant on reflective single ‘Tarot’

Rujen is a Indie-Psych Rock band from Atlanta and they return with a brilliant new single called ‘Tarot‘.

Tarot‘ from Rujen is an indie-neo-psychedelic rock mixture that makes even the best chef blush, They love to create vibrant, densely layered atmospheres of tones, textures, and introspective vocals that swell, echo, and distort with fierce synergy. This self-proclaimed statement is totally true. Not a band to give themselves too much of a big head, they instead make incredible music with heart.

This is all about not knowing what the future holds and life being a big game. There is thunder and lightning everywhere and you need to be on your toes. It’s your time now and this is about doing what is best to make this music dream happen.

I love the soundtrack here. The production is fantastic and I like the softly delivered vocals that keeps you cool and calm. The song is of such standard that this could be in a movie.

Tarot‘ from Rujen is a standout single full of road-trip wanderings that is encapsulated perfectly by this fine Atlanta band.
