Oldmanyoung – 4AM Safari: Eccentrically Melodic, Funk-Deep Alt Indie Folk

Any fans of the eccentricity of Big Thief are sure to appreciate the latest melodically quaint single from the duo Oldmanyoung.

With both artists bringing completely different influences and cultures to their tracks, it would have been more than disappointing if the artists failed to synergistically create textured alchemy which stretches beyond what you’ve head before.

4AM Safari simultaneously feeds you Funk, playfully vibrant Electronica around acoustic organic elements, and lyricism which doesn’t concern itself with painting the world something that it isn’t.

Many artists like to over-romanticise the world with their lyrics, yet, there’s an ominously magnetic pull to 4AM Safari allowing the track to run through with a contemporary feel complete with a sense of realism. There really is no understating just how enamouring this single is as you listen to the woody transcendental rhythms weave around the solid guitar notes in the sporadic yet seamless instrumental arrangement. There’s also plenty to be said for the undiluted charisma which oozes from the vocals.

You can check out Oldmanyoung’s latest single 4AM Safari for yourselves by heading over to Spotify now.

Veronica Malki – Habibti: Acoustically Magnetic Alt-Folk

To describe Veronica Malki’s single Habibti as an emotional rollercoaster almost feels like an understatement. So, instead I’ll tell you that if you don’t feel something by the time the final verse fades out, you’re dead inside.

Usually, when it comes to Folk artists, the one thing that they are missing is power in their vocals, yet, it’s not until the momentum builds through the progressive track that you’re treated to the true strength and soul which is harnessed in Veronica Malki’s voice. The prelude starts with the progression of an acoustic guitar before the double bass is slowly, seamlessly weaved into the mix bringing so much brevity to the track, it’s almost guaranteed that your stomach will be left in knots.

You can check out Veronica Malki’s single out along with the rest of the album by heading over to Bandcamp from September 14th, 2018. But if you want a taste of what’s to come, you can sink your teeth into her acoustically angelic first album ‘Listening’ while you wait!
