Fernando Peters has made their intriguingly exploratory debut with the album “Living Low”

Fernando Peters may not be a household name, but the artists who he has composed for and played as a session artist with are.

The Brazilian artist has kicked off their solo career with the intriguingly explorative album “Living Low”. The tracks it contains may not fall neatly into any genre category, but they safely fall into the realm of cathartic ingenuity.

The best introduction to their indulgently transcendent style is “Island Inside”. With smooth licks of Jazz within the ambient soundscape along with undefinable artfully intimate textures, it’s no great stretch to say that you’ve never heard anything like this before.

The vocals which resonate as ethereal whispers slide in at the mid-point in the progressive soundscape which may be unpredictable at every evolution, but you’re safe in the deftly experienced hands of Fernando Peters.

You can check out Island Inside along with the rest of the album by heading over to Spotify.

Treat Your Playlists to Some Rhythm with ALAN’s latest single “Don’t Tell Me No More”

You may not find many tracks similar to ALAN’s latest single “Don’t Tell Me No More” in the UK Top 40. But if their vintage sound was more prolific, there’d be much more indulgent euphoria in the charts.

For any fans of vibrant rhythms, you’re sure to appreciate the flair instilled into the Brazilian Samba serves up plenty of instrumental ingenuity with plenty of lyrical depth. The song was inspired by unrequited love due to the allure of materialistic desire. Everyone knows that money can’t buy happiness, and it won’t help us to buy the charade either.

Expect theatrical stylings, shimmering percussion, commanding basslines, and the sax and trumpet which bring another effervescent dynamic texture to this archaic delight which borrows a few tones from 20s – 40s Jazz.
