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.
