Break free of your ennui with the old school romanticism in Phil Dutra’s latest retro country-pop single, It’s Not Enough (Falling for Your Love). The Austin Texas artist’s sway-worthy guitar-driven melodies provide a sure-fire nostalgia hit as they croon through the crescendos as Dutra goes all-in with his robustly romantic vocals.
If you cranked up the intensity in Elvis Presley’s Can’t Help Falling in Love by 1000%, it still wouldn’t come close to the stridently visceral release that is the aural equivalent to holding a boombox up underneath an ex paramour’s bedroom window. Romance will never be dead, for as long as there are songwriters in the same gorgeous vein as Dutra.
It’s Not Enough is available to stream and purchase via Bandcamp.
The 17-year-old singer-songwriter and instrumentalist Lauren K Adams has released her debut alt-county-pop crossover EP, The Introduction. The standout single, Dancing in the Eye of a Hurricane, carries the coveted gravitas of an artist that has dedicated their life to honing in on their craft, but discernibly, the melodies that her poetic lyrics breeze through are as natural as breathing. If you could imagine a hybrid of the best parts of Cohen, Stevie Nicks and Kate Bush, you’ll get close to imagining the ingenuity on offer here.
You’d be seriously hard-pressed to find another up and coming artist with such succinct talent when it comes to capturing the multifaceted complexities of the human experience. The airwaves are an infinitely better place for her debut. The motivation for it goes beyond the yearning for accolades; it stems from the far less factious inclination to empower her listeners.
Dancing in the Eye of a Hurricane is now available to stream on Spotify.
There’s a fairly cast-iron archetype for female voices in Country, Lindzey Autumn tore it apart with her empoweringly fierce debut single “Bad Influence”.
No, she doesn’t try to play the hedonistic miscreant herself, enlightenedly, harmoniously she tears down the pretence of the people who carry themselves with a devious air, the ones who think it makes up for a lack of personality.
The contemporary styling of the roots-deep sound and the amount of convictive within it will undoubtedly see Lindzey Autumn rising up from the underground in no time at all. Get her on your radar. You won’t want to miss her debut EP which is currently in the pipeline.
