Jazzy-soul delights with Georgia & The Vintage Youth on fantastic ”Heavy Eyes”

Proudly Essex and packed full of jazzy infused waterfalls of goodness, Georgia & The Vintage Youth dance in with their new punchy track called ”Heavy Eyes”.

Georgia and her retro-pop band “The Vintage Youth” have established quite a reputation in London and are looking for more. When gigs are available again, they will certainly be aiming to tour far and wide. After a 50 date support tour in 2019, this is an artist that is pushing to be at the top.

After being signed to top UK management company, TALENTBANQ and heading into the studio to record her new EP – ”Overthinker”, big things are happening. Her Team now in place, this frees Georgia up to fully focus and making music and making sure the band’s dynamics are on point.

Taken off the brand new EP also called ”Heavy Eyes” with ”Thick As Thieves” and ”You + I”, all three of these songs are filled with so much soul. The style is filled with retro, pop, jazz and soul. The mixture is of vintage and fresh new sounds emerging from the beautiful big blonde hair and big voiced Georgia who holds her tone expertly the whole way though.

Heavy Eyes” is a sterling effort from Georgia & The Vintage Youth who get the vibe just right and this is music to be listened with friends and family all evening. With a big future ahead, exciting times await this quality UK act. Be sure to catch the music video that is to be release very soon too.

A modern and commercial pop hit: The Vision’s ‘Right Now’

Up and coming 3-piece Essex band The Vision drop their new song Right Now, a modern and commercial pop hit that wins its place among major artists’ latest singles.

The upbeat tempo adorned by claps and dense synths widens the harmony without overfilling the structure, and produces some good dance vibes you can’t help but enjoy within the very first minute.

Beautiful pop vocals sing about diversity and acceptance, concepts we’re all sensitive to, while the seriousness of the theme provides a great contrast with the easiness of the music – all for a contagiously fresh outcome.

The Vision’s commercial style handprint must not be taken for granted, so give them some credit by listening to Right Now on Youtube.

Binky Releases Energised Country-Pop Track “Fireflies”

Binky is a young British country pop singer songwriter with a very unique tone, style and approach to music. With her extensive training in music, dance and drama Binky bridged a link between Nashville and London which truly makes her sound authentic and distinguishable from all the rest. In her song “Fireflies” she in fact projects a great outburst of energy in combination with an exciting and immersive performance that is sure to have people from different parts of the world singing along to her anthemic catchy chorus.

One of the most striking aspects in this particular song is the constant drive and energy that literally surrounds the listener with a vibrant atmosphere that is hard to ignore. Apart from this, Binky’s voice contours melodies which feature an interesting range both in the verses and in the soaring chorus. The melodies chosen are not only uplifting but also very singable and memorable. The blend between country and pop is also very striking and authentic, resulting in a song that is enjoyable for a very wide and varied audience. The sound is authentically country influenced but the melodies and energised choruses bring out the strong pop element to the forefront. With her intelligent blend of styles and characteristic vocal tone Binky is not only creating a connection between continents through music but also providing us with an uplifting sound that is surely to be recognised on the radio.

Leonie Sherif Releases Slick R&B Track “Deny”

Leonie Sherif follows in the pop-dance traditions of the likes of Whitney Houston, Toni Braxton and Mariah Carey, and if you are going to pick role models they don’t come much bigger than that. And like her icons she weaves slick dance grooves through accessible and sophisticated pop melodies to create music and which in a throwaway world is anything but.

It is the combination of old and new, the match of a certain familiarity with a forward thinking vision that makes this work so well. For every modern electro- beat there is an organic, old school R&B groove, for every pop pulse there is a soulful echo. Not everything has to be about revolution when it comes to creativity, barriers don’t always need kicking down, pop music doesn’t need to undergo unnecessary cross pollination, sometimes it is just enough to nurture what has gone before and give it a modern rethink. Evolution really is the way forward.
