Get psyched with Axl Phnxx’s experimental Indie Ballad “FEEL THE NIGHT”

Up and coming artist Axl Phnxx has released their experimental Indie ballad FEEL THE NIGHT, any fans of BC Camplight are going to want to hear it.

Starting off with a prelude which offers reminiscences to The Verve, FEEL THE NIGHT quickly gains momentum and picks up euphoria as it progresses. With choppy piano notes and frenzied percussion alongside Axl Phnxx’s galvanizingly energetic vocals FEEL THE NIGHT is sure to leave you psyched.

It may be a full-throttle supersonic hit, but the talented nuances within the instrumental arrangement are all too easy to pick out. Axl Phnxx may just be this generation’s Elton John.

You can check out FEEL THE NIGHT for yourselves by heading over to SoundCloud now.

Chamik Zhang releases romantic pop track ‘I Wish You Well’

When we think of romantic pop music of substance, even in the more commercial world, we generally think of the high-concept and artistic direction of Kate Bush and Tori Amos or the high volume commerciality of kitsch dinosaurs such as Elton John or Billy Joel (though The Stranger is an album that should be studied in music colleges the length and breadth of the country.) Well, with I Wish You Well, Chamik Zhang finds a middle way that combines integrity with appeal.

Chamik Zhang makes short work of blending Damien Rice minimalism with just the right amount of commercial melodicism. Heartstrings will be tugged, emotions unleashed, young women will swoon and the world will feel just that little bit more poetic. And when did the world ever not benefit from such happenings?
