Gillyman shares the tantalizing tale of being locked in his brain on ”Cake”

New artist Gillyman teases his tremendous talent on the mind-bending new track called ”Cake”.

Taken off the self-titled album, ”Cake” is such a mellow journey of self-discovery that warps the brain due to the dazzlingly electric beats and vivid vocals.

Gillyman roams free on this new track without any restrictions. There aren’t a lot of vocals on ”Cake” but that doesn’t matter. I’m fascinated as to why this song is called ”Cake” too. Hopefully when I see Gillyman perform live I’ll ask him.

This is 2 minutes 27 seconds of blissful music that enters your brain and never lets go. I love the intricate groovy beat that makes my head swivel and groove in delight.

The indie-pop song ”Cake” from Gillyman is one of the most chilled tracks you will hear so turn it up, tune out from social media and enjoy this mellow tune for any day of the week.

London’s Myla Valentina sings into our hearts with powerful message ”Freedom”

”This song touches on the tragedies happening in the world right now and how all we really want in the end is Freedom. Freedom from racism, sexism, judgement, war, violence. This song is to make people think about the world that we live in, the choices we make and fighting for what is right.”-Myla Valentina

Life can be cruel but luckily we have incredible music to heal. Sung with bravery and produced with love by UK artist Myla, this is her latest offering called ”Freedom”. With meaningful guitar rifts to complement the song, this is a powerful track inside 2020’s carnage. Myla sings with such heart with her dark indie-pop style on such a terrifying topic that clouds our minds. I feel like the production matches Myla’s ambitions perfectly.

We have so many questions and some can’t be answered right now. This is a song that asks a lot of them and with this powerful message, I feel that London’s Myla has reached a new plateau in her career. This is scrumptious music with an edge. We are all seeking freedom and will proceed with caution.

Stream this stunning song here on Soundcloud.

Hiva Oa – Souvenir: Funk-Addled Pensive Indie

Hiva Oa’s have taken their latest Electro Indie Pop single Souvenir in a captivatingly experimental new direction. The sound is one thing, the energy is quite the other. There is so much essence packed into the intense multi-layer progressions you’re left wondering how the sound so seamlessly switched from one soundscape to another. Whilst you’re relatively sure you’re listening to an Indie track unfold during the verses by the time the track fades out, you’re immersed in a visceral pulsating EDM rhythm.

If the Belfast-based trio’s single Souvenir doesn’t end up in the Indie charts, then I may have to lose all faith with the music buying public. Their dynamic sound is undoubtedly unrivalled thanks for their ability to weave together a catalogue of high-octane styles and persuasions to create some of the most perfectly orchestrated melodies I’ve ever heard.

Souvenir is due for release from September 17th, until then, check out the band’s earlier releases via Spotify and wait for the drop.

Promises Promises – What Love Is: Prodigally Pounding Electro Indie Pop

When’s the last time you heard Acid House in synergy with Indie Pop? No, I can’t say it happens for me a lot either which was why I was absolutely stoked to come across Promises Promises latest single What Love Is. Released on the 4th of May, the track has already gained deserved attention for Promises Promises ability to create one of the most immense mixes I’ve heard dropped this year.

The Bristol based Electronic Pop 4-piece powerhouse of musicians have a command over the fluidity of sound that you don’t hear orchestrated all too often. Their dynamic approach is quite literally a breath of fresh air. Jonny Marenghi’s soaring lead vocals over the beat hit the perfect pitch to let the sentimentality behind the lyrics really resonate. It’s bands like Promises Promises who prove that guitar music isn’t dead. They’ve brought it into a brand new arena, as much as I love a good 808 beat there’s just no substituting for the smack of a drum stick on a skin.

You can catch the official video to What Love Is on YouTube now.
