‘Overtime’ is a story of being cheated on by Paul Shepherd & Mikki

UK producer, writer and label owner Paul Shepherd & singer Mikki are back with a new bouncy indie track and this one slips in called ‘Overtime‘.

This is a story about being treated badly by the man you love so much. They keep on deceiving you and you wonder why. You have been so loyal the whole time and he keeps on creeping around and flirting with other girls. You are are at your wits end as he said that he could be trusted.

The vocal delivery from Mikki is so raw and honest, you can feel the pain and frustration in her voice. I like her consistent delivery in her unique drawl that seeps through the speaker. The production is top notch too and this feels like a 90’s flavored song with lots of style.

Paul Shepherd & Mikki make a fun team that stride through the crowd and make their move in 2020.

Alt Pop artist La Reina is set to release her most sultry track yet with “Divide”

La Reina

Pop, Trap, and Alt Rock all merge in the latest experimental release from up and coming artist La Reina’. If you’re one of those people blessed enough to get goosebumps while listening to truly atmospheric music, prepare for the chills which you’ll feel curtesy of this tonally dark but melodically striking track.

The caustic cuts of the instrumentals carve out the perfect platform for La Reina’s poised yet lucid vocals which verse the lyrics which run through like spoken-word poetry. Listening to La Reina’s music allows you to appreciate the alchemy which can pour when artists are brave enough to throw away genre-constraints and take an experimental approach to their sound.

You’ll have to wait a little longer before you can check out Divide for yourselves. In the meantime, head over to Spotify where you’ll find La Reina’s debut EP “Destined”.
