Dublin’s Guilherme Cosme drops hauntingly terrifying visuals for, ‘Amber’

With the exploration of trauma and perseverance through this heavy visual experience that is only meant for adults, Guilherme Cosme shows us deeper inside his overflowing mind with his new release and music video for, ‘Amber‘.

Guilherme Cosme is a Brazil-born Dublin, Ireland-based experimental psychedelic singer-songwriter and the lead vocalist of the Irish rock band, Mary Bleeds.

Initially insecure about his abilities, Cosme kept his music to himself until his early 20’s when he found the courage to share it with other musicians. Although all his early work was in his native Portuguese, as a writer he loved the cadence and phonetical textures of English. He moved to Ireland to immerse himself in the language and never looked back.” ~ Guilherme Cosme

Taken from his new album that is set for a release later on in 2022 and is called ‘Persephone and the Ghost Brother‘, Guilherme Cosme opens up the creaking door and bravely shows us inside his dark thoughts that many will recognize. This track is explosive and takes you by surprise at first, as he cannons a story that will open up your eyes and make you ponder everything you thought possible.

He wrote these songs as catharsis while struggling with depression, anxiety and bipolar disorder. With the new record, Cosme hopes to reach out to those who struggle with similar issues and to raise awareness of the pain and suffering many face in silence.” ~ Guilherme Cosme

Amber‘ from Brazil-born Dublin, Ireland-based experimental psychedelic Avant-garde musician Guilherme Cosme, is a video that will either scare the skin right off your body or lead you in closer. He has created something so rare here that is filled with heartfelt emotion and obvious pain, that needs to be expressed before it breaks him into tiny pieces. Music is his medicine and this is shown brightly here, from an artist who is like none other.

Produced, mixed and mastered by Rafa Luna and edited with the help of Jules Altoé, this is the new DIY Music Video from Brazilian indie rockers, The Zasters.

COVID-19 has reached a tipping point and this fantastic song has just expressed the feeling of millions so eloquently. We are all a bit fed up are starting to lose the plot.

Brazilian Bass boost by Cardinal’s ”Leviathan”

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U9PnlgSVGNY&feature=youtu.be

Barely two months old and based in Belgium, Cardinal are an exciting electronic act that is hot on the scene. Created during COVID-19, they have just released their 4th single called ”Leviathan”. It’s a bass hungry beat with hardly any vocals and pumps out the speakers to satisfying levels.

A real hard house kind of song that would be popular while playing to packed dance floors at 3:30am in the morning, with sweaty revelers during a summer party. This is guaranteed to be played loud and proud.

Cardinal from Belgium drops their 4th single called ”Leviathan” and it’s an eye-popping surge back down memory lane on this one. With Brazilian hard house beats and a trance feel, they have created a sound that is already popular but have added their own twist to proceedings. Being a new act, they have some catching up to do but with the speed of their releases, are making up for lost time.

Karol Conka Announces New Single Release ‘Lala’

We tend to regard pop music as being on one side of the music spectrum – shiny and reletivley new, whilst world music, traditional cultural sounds are at the opposite end. Karol Conka is on a mission to unite the two factions. This Brazilian firebomb effortlessly blends rap, R&B, pop and the traditional sounds of her homeland and the result is spectacular. She became “Karol with a K” at her first high school show and since dropping her debut album Batuk Freak in 2013 has gone on to take the rap world by storm.

And whilst visually she has a striking and memorable outward image with shocking pink hair and an iconic bling style, it is her lyrics that are causing the most attention. Driven to write about self-esteem and female empowerment, Karol shows that there is more to her than the glitz and glamour of her outer projection. But it all starts with the music and LaLa in particular captures her perfectly as she weaves her Brazilian musical heritage through pop beats and sultry dance grooves. Karol Conka, an artist proving that it is possible to be both big and clever.
