CATALINA SKIES- Fear King Kong: It’s no doubt that it’s an insanely superb piece of art

London-based quartet CATALINA SKIES have recently dropped their newest single ‘’Fear King Kong’’. With a mixture of Indie Pop and Alternative Rock, they surely know how to make a track that’s catchy in all the right places.

With in your face guitar riffs, crazy drum solos alongside the deep gritty vocals that compliment the lyrics. A band that has a story to tell and does that through up-beat melodies and energetic vocals. Sharing similarities with bands like Enter Shikari and Foo Fighters, from listening to Fear King Kong its safe to say they have nailed their sound.

Picking up the pace, and then slowing it down is something this band do very well, the overwhelming feeling of suspense lingers, when the pace picks up this massive amount of energy appears and the whole track just gets that little bit nosier and that little bit heavier and it’s so interesting to listen too how much of a transition it has but how well its done.

Jetlag Girl- The Secret Recipe: Indie-Pop at it’s finest

Indie, Rock and Pop combine together to create the newest single ‘’The Secret Recipe’’ by band Jetlag Girl. A perfectly eerie and strange track that completely shows the listeners just how good Indie-Pop can sound.

A track where the instrumentation can tend to overpower the vocal aspects, but one that just gives it that right amount of edginess and that’s exactly what this band have. The overall sound and style of this track is mesmerising, the rhythm becomes fairly distorted in places and it gives off this chilling feeling, but the crazier and more weird it begins to sound the more you get hooked on it.

The vocals are pretty amazing, their pretty plain and simple but that’s what completely makes The Secret Recipe a hit in itself, it’s great to hear vocals where it simply just sounds superb, there doesn’t have to be any major changes in sound or affects, it just comes out as it is and that’s what makes this track stand out as that’s something you don’t tend to hear a lot anymore.

Jetlag Girl are an absolute must to check out, their mysterious sound and style is one not to miss, can’t wait to see what they get up to next!

Head on over to SoundCloud to check out Jetlag Girl The Secret Recipe for yourselves now.

Rian Music- I’m the One: Mysterious, distorted yet infectious

Rian Music has released the latest single ‘’I’m the One’’. Pop and RnB intertwine to create this strange yet insanely catchy track.

The instrumentation has this infectious rhythm that stands out in the background, with the use of a clicking effect, and the loud and hard-hitting drum beats, the sound effects used to create the melody is impressive in itself, the beat and the way in which the vocals collide alongside it is excellent.

Throughout you begin to hear this strong, clear female vocal that takes it into a more acapella style, as her humming begins to sway in and out of the whole track, to give it this more relaxing and zen style. But then you’re taken back again to the high energy vocals and melody that gives it that RnB and Pop sound.

Billy Mick releases new single Take It As It Comes

Billy Mick has released his track ‘’Take It As It Comes’’. With a variety of sounds from Country, Hip-Hop and Pop, he has created something that gets you feeling good.

With an up-lifting rhythm and a cheerful atmosphere to go along with it, not to mention the crazy amounts of energy that is injected into it. Billy sure knows how to take his audience by surprise, at first you’d think it’d be more a 80’s classic hit, with the use of synthesizers, gated snares and programmed beats, the synth of the song leads you into many dimensions and that’s why this one needs to be added to your playlist.

But then this full on Country sound comes rolling in and combines with that 80’s throwback style, a rather diverse mixture but one that works so incredibly well together.

Billy Micks has completely delved into music in such a positive manor, not being afraid to mix it up and rather than modernising his sound to be more up to date with this day and age, he instead wanted to hook his audience in and send them back on a journey through time and it’s so mesmerising to listen too.

Sofia Werner drops her killer hit Leave Me Alone: A pure talented and creative Pop track

Latina-American singer-songwriter Sofia Werner has taken the music world by storm and created such an amazing track, it’s one that deserves so much recognition. ‘’Leave Me Alone’’ is definitely one that is a hit in itself.

With only being 16 years of age, Sofia has taken her creativity and determination and turned it into something magical. There is so much she still has left to learn about the music industry, but with only being young, she stands out so much already and her new track proves just why.

It’s simple, not in a bad way, there’s nothing that’s too in your face and nothing too boring, it’s just right. Sofia’s vocal ranges are insane, she hits the high notes perfectly and she can transition between ranges fast but it still flows so well. Going from low-pitch vocals to a more acapella style.

There’s so much emotion and feeling that goes with Sofia’s vocals which makes it so much easier to listen to and connect with. Throughout this track you can hear the upset and anger in the voice and as well as the lyrical approach it gives off this poignant meaning of heartbreak, it’s done so beautifully.

Sofia Werner has proved just why we love Pop music so much and even though she’s only just started out and has lots of time to grow and learn, she definitely has our attention. We can’t wait to see what Sofia gets up to next!

Cam O’Brian- Already Famous: An energetic Country Rap piece

If you want to delve into the world of Country Rap then this one is a must to check out. Cam O’Brian has released his new track ‘’Already Famous’’ and it’s one hell of a Country song.

When you think Country Rap it may sound a bit peculiar, but in fact it’s becoming a lot more popular, especially after Lil Nas X took everyone by surprise. This is definitely similar to Old Town Road for sure, but up and coming artist Cam O’Brian shows his listeners just how much of a hit Country Rap can be when it’s done right, whilst intertwining Hip-Hop, Trap and Pop.

Having that pure old western cowboy feeling by the use of the fast strums on the Ukulele. Cam tends to bounce back and forth with his voice, he can sound pure country and then sometimes he can sound really Pop when he hits the high notes, it’s pretty impressive.

Already Famous is a track you can’t help but want to listen to again and again, it’s so contagious and so fun to listen too.

Ato-Mik drop new single Faithfully ft Malikai Motion: Rap and Hip-hop intertwine

Born and raised in North Vancouver, two brothers Atom and Mikey Mic joined together to create Ato-Mik, recently dropping their single ‘’Faithfully’’.

A lot of aspects of this track stand out, but the main one is without a doubt the way in which both of them sound, they both have such distinct vocals, and they’re not even in the same pitch or pace which is really interesting to listen too.

However, even though the two vocals are pretty diverse they still go side by side and intertwine perfectly. Atom has a fairly soft yet deep vocal range, when he raps it’s not too quick or slow it’s the right amount of pitch and pace. Mikey has a more high-pitched vocal, but his rap is a lot faster.

The energy you hear through this track from both of them is infectious, there’s this constant up-beat rhythm. Faithfully shows how Rap can be done in a more modernised way, Ato-Mik are bringing their revised Rap sound into 2020 and it’s going to be exciting to see what they do next after listening to this.
