Gibney Jeys Dobson & Mann – Henley’s After Party: Indulgently Smooth Blues Rock

After hearing the standout single “Henley’s After Party” from up and coming Rock artist Gibney Jeys Dobson & Mann’s debut album “Hint of Lemon”, I’m fairly certain that I won’t hear a more accordantly cathartic Rock single this year.

The single shares reminiscences with the more melodious offerings from artists such as Arctic Monkeys and the Black Keys. But Gibney Jeys Dobson & Mann weaved in plenty of tonally rich jazzy-warmth into the soundscape while simultaneously offering arrestive technical Blues guitar riffs which leave you with no degree of uncertainty over the talent contained by the irrefutably gifted musicians.

 Lesse – Drive Away: Sentimentally Sticky-Sweet Pop Rock

“Drive Away” is the latest single from up and coming artist Lesse. It’s also one of those incredibly rare singles with the ability to leave you even more intrinsically enamoured with every single progression of constantly evolving sound.

Through their latest single, the Dutch singer-songwriter offers the sticky-sweet melodicism of an accessible Pop single, but there’s also a subtle infusion of Rock, giving Drive Away the same euphoric magnetism of iconic hits from the likes of Springsteen, Bon Jovi and Bryan Adams.

Perhaps the most captivating element in Drive Away is the sheer authenticity of the soundscape. Even though it carries plenty of commercial appeal, it’s leagues apart from the plasticised Pop which you will frequently find on the airwaves.

MILENA Releases Her Latest Single “Summer of Heat & Spice”

Up and coming artist MILENA released their latest single “Summer of Heat & Spice” on September 27th. Of course, there was no forgetting MILENA after the release of her singles “I Won’t Give Up” and “Every Day”. But with each new release, MILENA demonstrates the boundless versatility of her sound.

Her latest single incorporates soft Jazzy elements in a Neo-Soul soundscape with an almost Neo-Classical piano melody which dominates the instrumental arrangement and creates the perfect platform for MILENA’s distinctive vocals. The emotivity of the single definitely won’t fail to resonate – especially when the semi-orchestral swells are gently weaved into the light emotive melody.

Back of House – Take a Bulleit: Confrontationally Cathartic Garage Punk

“Take a Bulleit” is the fiery, snappy new Rock single from up and coming artist Back of House. The Garage Punk attitude runs right through their angsty hit which also uses the stylistically menacing energy of Post Punk.

Artists such as Back of House prove quite irrefutably that Punk definitely isn’t dead. The confrontationally cathartic energy will always be essential on the airwaves.  And it’s safe to say that with Take a Bulleit, they have stamped their own signature sound in Punk.

Their captivatingly bendy basslines, infectious vocal swagger, and ability to pull together an energetic earworm of a hit should ensure that Back of House doesn’t remain on the underground for all too long.

Ples Jones feat Coranny – Bleu Light: Cinematically Ambient Electronica

“Bleu Light” is the lucidly captivating latest single from up and coming Ambient EDM artist and producer Ples Jones. For this track, they borrowed the deft vocal cords of female vocalist Coranny. Coranny’s vocals brought a powerfully soulful dynamic to the otherwise slightly alien mix which was doused in layers of sonically lush reverb.

It is only when the track fades out you realise just how truly hypnotically immersive the single was. Ambient electronica doesn’t get much more cinematically accordant than this. While there are plenty of EDM artists putting mixes out there, tracks as rhythmically arrestive and cathartic as Bleu Light are still incredibly few and far between.

Goldielocks releases their latest pensively emotive 80s synth track “Dysphoria”

Dysphoria isn’t exactly the best feeling in the world. So, it came as no surprise that Goldielocks latest single “Dysphoria” ft. Elva Ray was a fairly pensive aural experience.

Usually, synth-laden EDM hits attempts to force-feed you euphoria, but with Dysphoria, Goldielocks wasn’t unsuccessful in creating a soundscape which accurately reflects the insidious disconcertment which comes along with doses of dysphoria.

Without a hint of shame, I’ll admit that I was choking back the tears by the time Dysphoria reached the outro. The Sydney, Australia-based artist and producer perceptibly has a deft ability utilise rhythmic pulses and ominous electronic effect to relay resonantly captivating melancholy. That may all sound a little bleak, but Dysphoria is still a stunning soundscape – especially with the inclusion of Elva Ray’s harmonically celestial vocals.

STATIS – ABDUCTION: Intergalactically Intense Hip Hop

Breaking Dubstep artist STATIS has recently released their atmospherically sonic mix “ABDUCTION”. As you can probably guess by the name, there’s plenty of Sci-Fi futurism weaved into the track through inventive sampling. But what you probably won’t be prepared for is the sheer veracity of the relentlessly reverberant bass; prepare your eardrums for a pounding.

ABDUCTION may not be for the faint-hearted, but for anyone who likes their Dubstep filthy and fast, you’re sure to appreciate the caustically mind-blowing mix. And plenty of people have already jumped on the perceptible hype of the US-based artist. It’s evident that STATIS knows just how to structure a captivatingly chaotic track capable of hooking you in right from the very first soul-rattling offering of bass right up to the outro.

Even though Blood is Blood has plenty in common with hit 90s dance tracks, the artist didn’t fail to weave plenty of fresh, new, vibrant energy into the mix. There’s a fair amount of Disco Funk infused into the beats, giving Blood is Blood an infectious snappy rhythm which may need a little bit of convincing to leave your synapses alone.

If you’re looking for soulfully bass-drenched Hip Hop, your options are few and far between, so you may as well hit play on the experimentally jazzy latest single from up and coming artist Bobby Royale.

“Raise the Roof” was the debut single from Bobby Royale, and while he’s put out plenty of stylistic genre-contorting hits since, it still remains the perfect introduction to their distinctive style.

In Raise the Roof, naturally harmonic vocals sit against Bobby Royale’s relentlessly flawless, perfectly metered rap bars, while the soundscape takes you through constant evolutions of sound. From lashings of reverberant bass, to ominous synth keys to trickling light piano melodies, to Jazz-style brass, Raise the Roof merges it all together in an experimentally energetic soundscape which demands repeat attention.
