Trailed by a captivating overall musical performance which was further adorned with a catchy electro-pop sound that leaves one twirling and swirling to its gracious vibe, Night Ride really proved that they are still belligerent, camera-ready and more focused to reach the zenith of their music career in their sojourn thus far. This duo is the next best thing to happen to the Electro-pop music industry.
No, this is not like the usual drudge we do take in with a hard pinch of salt, It only takes 3 seconds out 4 minutes total play time of this amazing song for you to be entrapped and unfurled into a forever porch light of beautiful reverie.
So out goes the pop-electro-rock hybrid; which in its place sits a broad EDM party mix that initially manifested itself as One Republic pastiche on a subtle tale of unrequited love and emotional trauma. It’s exactly when the beam of awesomely pitched melody and amazing sexy vocals entwines with the synth-pop vibe of this song that its power of transfixion sets in.
The accentuate music group; Night Ride, is an electronic pop duo embracing synth-pop and rock, and fusing it with theatre, fashion, technology and art which creates a comfort zone that feels genuine.
Night Ride band draws their inspiration on this song from the tale of their sexual experience and couple of situation-ships which isn’t really what you would likely notice at the first listen since the vibe would rather make you pay less attention to the lyrics of the song. This also further backed up the reason why their music influencers happen to be the likes The Weeknd, CHVRCHES, Grimes, GusGus, and Paramore.
As the first track to be released from their forthcoming E.P. ‘Neon Dreams’, Lay You Down gives a good insight of what to expect from the up and coming duo and I simply hope they’d surpass my imagination just like they did in this song when I eventually get my hands on their EP album when it’s released.
A north star in a psychedelic milky way is the overriding theme of Night Ride’s “Lay You Down”. Everything was more than I expected. Simply put, It was nothing short of class and quality.
Heather & Snow might be the most intriguing electronic sound I have heard in a long time. I am not sure what I expected exactly, but “Down Down Deep,” is nothing like I anticipated. While it does have all the ingredients of an electro track; the keyboards, synths, plucked guitars, bass tones, and rattling metallic percussion, syncopated chords and even some gnarly digital slap bass it also has amazing vocals.
Not just typical singing over a track, there’s actually some awesome harmonic melody. The lead singer’s voice is hypnotic and trance like, and the background vocals match perfectly creating such a genuine sound. The vocalist shine in both tone and pitch, the reverb is not over done and the production quality is great. This group is a celebration of electronic sounds at it’s finest and I love it.
CHMBRS is an artist that blurs the lines between electronic music and indie pop. Their sound is dark and moody, yet somehow pleasing and appealing. Their recent single “Rabbit Hole” is a great example of the project’s attitude and drive.
The song begins with brooding, low-ended synth lines, while the vocals creep in and soar beautifully to the top of the mix. The production later comes to life with layers of dreamy synths and powerful beats. I particularly love the fact that this song is truly shape-shifting. The atmosphere of the track varies, from its ethereal and dark intro, up to the really rich choruses and uplifting textures of the arrangements.
Find out more about CHMBRS and don’t miss the stunning music video that was released to accompany the song, now available on Youtube. The video offers a great insight on the CHMBRS aesthetics, featuring some stunning choreography and a nice approach to cinematography.
Nola Wren and Kill Dave are Brooklyn-based songwriter / producers whose blend of gritty experimental indie and infectious pop hooks is sure to turn heads. Knife is their first collaboration and a promising sign of what’s to come.
“Knife” is a great track and showcases Nola’s powerful vocals with Kill Dave’s full, grit-pop production. The lyrics were also inspired by the case involving convicted Stanford rapist Brock Turner which gives the track an emotional edge.
