Untold Poet is a superb Essex, UK-based rapper and singer-songwriter, who was formerly the lead of New Subjects. Now fully on the solo trail as he finds his way, he stomps in to shake our attention with a thoughtful edge.

He raps with such an impressive fluidity as he attempts to chase away that demon who is attempting to block his view. Untold Poet flows with such supreme skills and drops the bars with impressive power and consistency.

This is story about learning who to trust in this sneaky world, that can kick you down like a rugged Sunday league defender at any second.

You are enough: Daneka drops intriguing debut about love and heartbreak on ‘She’s Never Been’

Through her thought-provoking lens of previous pain during her tough upbringing and seeing things a young girl shouldn’t, the inspiring Daneka tells us the true story of loving a man who is taken, while also sticking up for the unique ladies out there on promising debut ‘She’s Never Been’.

Daneka Ackhavong aka Daneka, is a Essex-born indie RnB/soul/pop singer-songwriter, who draws on her own real experiences that made her grow up quicker than she should, and uses her meaningful creations to help herself heal, whilst also assisting others who share her story.

She sings with such maturing glow and you can feel the true passion in her voice, her life was hard growing up and she was exposed to and did things she shouldn’t have been able to. She is now flying above all of that now however, to fully flourish and open her wings, as an emerging musician with bundles of talent and a determination like no other.

The story of loving a man who is with someone else is clear to see, as she tries to hide her feelings but can’t, as we hear about how some women are told that they aren’t pretty enough thanks to fake photo shopped fashion magazines, however they really are so gorgeous and desirable by just being themselves.

She’s Never Been’ from Southend On Sea, Essex-born Daneka, is a fantastic debut from a talented female artist, as she finds that inner confidence to tell her story without fear of being judged, in this often quick-comment world that is fast to hate, and too slow to fully love for the right reasons.

Don’t pull me out: Pilot Run take on the monsters in ‘Haunted Head’

Pilot Run are back with some of that old school heavy bass guitar riff excellence, via their new single ‘Haunted Head‘.

Three-piece Colchester, Essex-based indie alt-rock band Pilot Run, came back from the darkness, to fly up above the cheering crowds once again.

Bruce, Craig and Matt all knew each other from years of playing in different band together and after a few years apart, they fused together again like they had never left each other’s side. They play that electric heavy-in-you-face (but never too much) type of marauding music-that flows into your veins and pumps the the blood thick and chunky-like a kick-drum start to rev up that eager engine.

This is that true story of waking up each day to the dead and not wanting to get pulled out of bed, to the unnecessary madness going on outside. The world is a scary place and its better to stay hidden away for now, until things calm down a bit and its safe again.

With a grungy punk feel that only adds to the incredibly hard sound that knocks your head into place after hearing so much plastic music with no core lately, this is a wake-up call if there ever was one. An anthem to the lost who need to be found, this is a proper band that have the heart and soul of a hungry lion, who roars into action when needed to take on the scary monsters in the world.

Haunted Head‘ from Essex three-piece alt-rockers Pilot Run, is that quality music that you knew you needed as something was missing. They put a guitar stamp on your mind and this is one of the most exciting releases yet in 2021.

You are craving that true love and you want to share your life, hopes and fears with him, to see if this is something that will last. After a long and tiresome lock down, this is what you want and need.

She sings with such maturity and has a phenomenal voice that seems to get better as the song goes on, the glow is radiant and you can’t help but sing with her and stomp your feet to this electric beat that highly impresses.

This is singer has such soul and who makes music that actually means something. His tone is so incredible and each note seems so effortlessly delivered.

Ride the New Wave Indie tides in Pretty Visitors’ single ‘Hollywood Tantrum’

From the first jangly tonally tropic note in Pretty Visitors latest single ‘Hollywood Tantrum’ which features on their AA release alongside ‘I Think My Life is Working Out’ you’ll instantly feel the endearing warmth which raises the temperature in the New Wave Indie Pop hit.

With a nuanced Jazz infusion, Hollywood Tantrum exceeds every expectation you have when delving into a new artist’s sound. Authenticity, check. Rhythmic magnetism, check. Soulfully-expressive lyrics, check. It may be a sticky-sweet track, but it was never in danger of resonating as saccharine thanks to the hint of vocal despondence which ensured that every hint of euphoria you feel is grounded in gritty reality.

The Essex-based trailblazers are undoubtedly one to watch.

You can check out the AA release via Spotify.

Glenn Godfrey sings with loving memories on ‘I Wish’ (Official Lyric Video)

UK artist Glenn Godfrey sings with loving memories on ‘I Wish‘ (Official Lyric Video) and this is a fine song from a caring singer with a strong voice. He makes music in honor of his late Dad, his biggest fan and this is a top single with meaning.

A singer-songwriter from Essex, who has had the privilege of performing alongside some great artists such as, Tom Odell, Professor Green, Devlin, Mark Ronson and The Fratellis, Glenn is building up his name in the UK music scene.

You love them so much and things are great. Then you get the call that you had been dreading. Things are going to be different now and you wish that things were so different. Life will be harder but you must be strong and do what you love. Making music will keep you strong.

Glenn Godfrey is terrific on ‘I Wish‘ (Official Lyric Video) as this is a difficult topic to deal with. This is a lovely indie song with lots of layers full of wonderful vocals and the delivery is flawless. A fine effort indeed from the UK singer.

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.
