UK singer Kane sings about being cheated on with debut single ‘Guilty’

UK singer Kane sings about being cheated on by the girl of his dreams on the debut track ‘Guilty‘.

Kane is a singer-songwriter from Leicester in England. He was enjoying himself in Australia and on the holiday of his dreams. Then of course, corona struck, and he had to go home. No worries however. This has lead to him making his debut song and this is a well-sung track that strikes deep inside the heart like a flaming shooter, the story is so real and the taste is bitter.

You are with someone that you care about so much. The love is real and you are happy. Then suddenly, something is different. You have a feeling that something is a bit off and you think that she might be seeing someone else. You ask about who she is chatting to on her phone and you get a vague answer. You know now that you were right. It’s not just some guy and she looks guilty. Things are now bleak and the love is over.

Guilty‘ from the new singer Kane is a fine debut effort. The lyrics are so well constructed and the energy matches what is going on. He got cheated on which is a horrible feeling. Luckily, he is a resistant young man who will learn from this and be stronger. This is a quality effort and we might be witnessing a new name to watch in the UK music scene.

A beautiful tribute to Stevey from new UK artist Low Girl on ”ICU”

Hemel Hempstead in Hertfordshire, England is the home of indie UK singer Lowgirl. She is back with a fitting tribute to her friend Stevey on ”ICU”.

Lowgirl sings with such meaning on ”ICU”. She talks about memories of moments together, his support while performing live and how he always wanted to be in her music video. This time has arrived but isn’t the way it should of happened. Nonetheless, Lowgirl sends her friend a wonderful tribute that he would be proud of with a stunning song, full of soul and absolute meaning.

With much sadness, Stevey is not coming home but this is such an amazing track that it puts tears in my eyes. To lose someone so close is a horrible experience as you saw them so close. Lowgirl’s ”ICU” is such a sad but memorable track.

“Some people will be able to identify with the anticipation of a call from the hospital. Every day we would wait and every day the news would be worse. Being in that constant state of suspense starts to eat away at any hope you felt for things to work out. In the end the only thing I could do for him was to write about him” –Low Girl

ICU” is just a taste of a string of upcoming releases that will culminate with a debut EP in the Autumn of 2020. For a new artist that is just getting started, it’s so admirable that Low Girl is pushing forward during this tough time. She is a special soul with incredibly real lyrics and her music is so well-received. Lowgirl is an artist to keep an eye on closely.

Polish artist KAŚKA brings the beauty back to 2020 with the electrifying ”Insomaniac”

KAŚKA is a Polish singer-songwriter and producer based in South East London in England. She absolutely rips through the mic with her outstanding new single called ”Insomaniac”.

Electronics, jazz, hip-hop and ambient music is the vibe here. The song washes away all doubt in my heart and I feel like I’m living in a dream, floating on clouds with KAŚKA right beside me.

Pre-covid, KAŚKA was doing a postgraduate degree in Popular Music at the prestigious Goldsmiths University in London. This is a musician that is pushing herself to be the best version of herself.

Insomaniac is a word that she created to describe a person who enjoys staying up late at night. This track is her celebration of the night and its unique sounds and vibe. As a night owl myself, I totally relate to this idea and notion.

Polish musician KAŚKA’s ”Insomaniac” catapults her right to the top of my music playlist. This is a song to be enjoyed late at night of course, while watching the stars or meditating to relax. I love everything about this track and feel so much more relaxed. The layers here are breathtaking- from the rattlesnake-sounding shakers at the beginning to the electronic influences that slithers through the skin of the track. This is an outstanding effort.
