Getting rid of toxic energies: Oak Glen show us the way with the Electro-Pop whirlwind ‘Wasted Love’

The thunderous Electronic beginnings have you glued to your speakers right away, as the storm percolates outside. The swift move to lusciously laced vocals, gets you into the mood to make your own dance floor. The story of love that was once so hot and burning fire, has cooled down like a dip in the freezing ocean as your once steaming lips are blue- and so is your mood. Moscow based Alt-Electronica 3 Piece outfit Oak Glen drop their latest single ‘Wasted Love‘ from the fiery 5 track EP ‘Love Racer, and this is a supremely spectacular song that will make your heart beat way too fast.

With the lighter lit, her voice is so real and grabs you by the soul and doesn’t let go. The band are clearly tight, and their synergy is there for all to hear, this is an act that are ready for the big time. Each second of the song is made with such quality, and your head won’t stop bouncing along.

The love was so perfect and things were fun, this is the story of saying goodbye to that time in your life. Sadly, the spark has gone and the match won’t light again. Lead by the mysteriously exquisite exotic voice and creativity of front-woman Kate Neretina, these words of closure are so important for the troubled soul. To have the bravery to get away from something so toxic, is what so many of us need to hear. After all, its so easy to stay stuck in the hole, that leads nowhere but down.

Wasted Love‘ from Russia’s Oak Glen is a song that you will have to hear twice, in order to get all the intrinsic value out of the release. To be happy inside is way more important to your chakra force field, than to be with someone who sucks away at your good energy, and greedily takes away all your special soul with them.

Finding your voice with debut release: ‘I’m Going Down’ by Ristlynn shows total honesty

With a new direction comes much excitement and also much anxiousness. You have put your emotions out there to the world for the first time and this can be a scary feeling. Ristlynn is a brand new artist and he drops the honest story of his current feeling about life on the rhythmical ‘I’m Going Down‘.

His Electro-Pop style is magnetic and he takes us on a story of feeling really down right now. The drinks are flowing way too much and the stress level is at an all-time high. The world is a crazy place and he is struggling to get out of this worrying rut. We all deal with traumatic experiences differently and this is a hard time. Through music however, the expressive nature will help and may new fans will relate to this song and this is a great way to get it all out in the open. Healing through music is healthy, instead of bottling it all inside.

With a catchy style, honest lyrics and an expressive energy, Ristlynn shows the world what he is all about on ‘I’m Going Down‘. This is a welcome addition to the airwaves of the world as honesty is often lacking in music with bling and swag overshadowing what music is actually about- helping others and making music that means something.

To hear this fine new track go to Spotify and follow the journey on Insta.

Mivedrix shows us her ‘Alien Soul’ with this slice of deep, dark electropop.

Dark, brooding electropop from the effortlessly cool and rebelliously anonymous Mivedrix, ‘Alien Soul’ builds synthesisers, electronic samples, percussion, and acoustic instrumentation with Mivedrix’s multi-layered, prominent harmonised vocals to paint a glowering, ominous tale of alienation, loneliness, and the ever-present struggle to ‘fit in’.

Singer, songwriter, performer, and producer Mivedrix sells a story of the fears of self-expression in a world where the negative impact of ‘difference’ can be catastrophic, yet ‘Alien Soul’ is ultimately empowering, uplifting, and inspirational. Inspired herself by artists as diverse as Michael Jackson, The Weeknd, and classical composers such as Debussy, Mivedrix’s debut single will be released across all platforms on the 11th November.

Through betrayal breathes Electro Pop Poetry in Denae’s single “last night”

Electronica artist Denae has never been one to hold back in her tracks, yet her latest track, last night takes piercingly provocativeness to another level. You won’t just find compassion as she runs through the galvanizingly spite-fuelled verses, but you’ll get to share that lacerating feeling which often comes hand in hand with betrayal.

last night is a flood of visceral urgency and desperation to lyrically suck out the poison. The catharsis through the expression resonates right from the intro.

The track will lead you into darkness, causing you to run through any scornful moments that leave you a little less willing to trust again, to love again, all the while leaving you in adoration for Denae’s honesty and ability to convey striking emotion through her tantalising dark electro-pop track.

SHAW is set to drop their euphorically sonic Alt Pop track “Tired”

SHAW

Up and coming Pop artist SHAW is set to drop their most dynamic track yet with “Tired”. While the title sets you up for a sedate soundscape, SHAW subverts expectations and slams you right into a high-octane hit.

The energy practically pulsates through the euphoric track which pulls in elements of Garage Rock, Jazz, Rap and Indie Electro Pop to create a viscerally electrifying hit which contains one of the most hypnotising synth solos I’ve ever heard. It’s like Mozart himself laid down the progressions.

After all of the high-vibe sonic momentum, Tired fades out to the quaintly quiescent strumming of a ukulele in one of the most endearing outros we’ve heard. Tired is a rollercoaster, one that you’ll repeatedly want to ride.

You’ll have to wait a little longer before you can check out SHAW’s provocatively poetic single for yourselves. In the meantime, you can check out their 2 earlier releases via Spotify.

The ultimate Indie power couple The Civil Union has released their synthy sweet Pop Rock track “You&I”

You&I” is the synthy sweet Pop Rock earworm orchestrated by the Indie power couple The Civil Union which puts to shame all of the artificially composed love songs which consistently flood the airwaves.

When they say, “You and I are the only thing that needs to happen”, you believe it. The passion, determination and unfaltering love resonates just as much through the lush synth lines it does through the dual vocals as they coalesce under vocal reverb for a retro-futuristic effect.

The Civil Union had to triumph over adversity for the release of their debut self-titled album. The album which became so much more than a project. It turned into purpose, catharsis and the testament of the love that breathes between them.

You can check out You&I for yourselves by heading over to SoundCloud now.

Leon Seti’s ephemeral new track ‘Japan’ is a deeply moving tribute wrapped up in a pitch-perfect pop song

Based in London and Arezzo, Italy, his nostalgic yet experimental electro-pop has been played by the BBC Introducing, was featured in Billboard Italia and his latest album COBALT reached #1 on the Itunes Electronic chart in Italy. Leon Seti played in venues such as The O2 Academy Islington and The Spice of Life in London, as well as historic clubs like Spin Time Labs in Rome and Il Cassero in Bologna

In a tribute to his mother who suffered a number of health-related issues during quarantine in Italy, Leon Seti has released the song “Japan” which is a soft and supple track that is rhythmically visionary.

Telling a story throughout, Leon Seti sings the lyrics beautifully occasionally hitting his falsetto to empower the track. Easily relatable to many during these tough times, Leon Seti tells us his story with his lyrics that he wrote and the winding progressive beats that brings this escapism feeling throughout.

The song has been produced by Leon Seti and Pancratio, and a video for the song has been released to accompany the track which has been directed and edited by Thomas Rebour with Shaun Waldie acting as director of photography. It sees various images and scenes of Leon Seti, edited in line with the track itself.

“Japan” is an awesome track we could listen to on repeat, giving us pure escapism as Leon Seti impresses with his stunning vocals and lyrics. It is one track we all need to add to our everyday playlists..

Evadaze Ft. Lachlan Andrews – ‘Are We Still Good?’: Perfect summer lockdown electropop

‘Are We Still Good?’ could be the story of 1,000,000 fledgeling lock-down romances, soon-to-be couples forced into isolation and unsure what, if anything, comes next. Catchy, bouncy, electronic pop perfectly backs singer Evadaze’s breathy delivery, guest vocalist Lachlan Andrews delivering a spicy counterpoint in this two-way conversation about love, life, and what might be.

It’s catchy and well-produced, the piano-led melody leaving plenty of space around Shortt’s vocals; the hook finds its way into your head, ear-worm like, and stays put around Lachlan and Shortt’s vocal interplay on the final chorus. A perfect summer antidote to lockdown blues.
