Silly Love: Faith Louise drops dynamically reflective romantic love letter on 8th single Heartbreak

Faith Louise is an Essex, UK-based pop singer-songwriter phenomenon which has released 7 successful singles and is signed to Regent Street Records.

It is a song about the unsureness and worry of your heart being broken in a relationship that’s actually a really healthy one. It explores the confusion of why such a good person has entered your life, and how the mind thinks about the what-ifs and maybes. All feelings many of us feel and can hopefully connect to whilst listening to the song.” ~ Faith Louise

Wondering how this love will conquer the moment when she doesn’t give it up quickly, Faith Louise sings with honesty and courageousness in this revealing message.

With exquisite vocals and a range that could make many listen twice, this is a rather lovely effort from such a caring heart who is in a dream of introspection.

Heartbreak from Essex, UK-based indie pop singer-songwriter Faith Louise is a sensational track which is surely cinematic in nature. Feeling stuck for a moment and wondering what the future is holding, we are opened up to a stunning performance by one of the most imaginative artists in the game.

Ella Hayes sold soul-pop sanctuary in her debut single, Recovery

Essex soul-pop singer-songwriter Ella Hayes paraded her vanquished skeletons and shared her growing pains in her debut EP, Colour Me In, which follows her through her journey of addiction, awakening and expressive creativity.

The standout single, Recovery, was a means of catharsis for the artist, which she extended to the airwaves as a powerfully inspiring affirmation that addiction doesn’t have to be a life sentence. The pop-rock orchestral layers set the perfect tone for her candour, which leaves few stones unturned around the epiphanous lyrics, which resolvingly prove that sanctuary is always in reach, despite how low your rock bottom feels.

“All my life I’ve been terrorised by the lies my head tells me” is one hell of an opening lyric; one that sets the bar she continually transcends throughout Recovery.

Recovery is now available to stream on Spotify

Nicki Shakes shares a relatable thirst in her single, I Need a Drink

Country singer-songwriter-sensation Nicki Shakes shared a relatable thirst in the standout single, I Need a Drink, from her debut album, Rise. For everyone that has ever wanted to evade the nefariousness of their consciousness, the bluesy swagger of the melodically upbeat Country pop rock single has all the makings of a playlist staple.

Her eclectically matured sound may sonically take you to a dive bar in Tennessee, but the accomplished UK-residing artist tours her soulful tales of heartbreak and woe across Essex and London. What comes as much less of a surprise is the international airplay Nicki Shakes has garnered with her energy that epitomises artistic dynamism.

I Need a Drink is now available to stream on Spotify.

Climbed the Walls: UK rockers High Society wonders if it’s all worth the struggle on Hard to Breathe

Tackling the difficult conversation of mental health that is often brushed under the carpet, High Society shows us their excellent intimate sold-out show success that is matched by a truly rousing performance on Hard to Breathe.

High Society is an alternative rock/grunge band based in Herts/Essex, UK who have emerged as one of the most electrifying live acts around.

Formed in 2020, in the wake of the pandemic, High Society is an outlet for the trials and tribulations of two twenty something young men struggling to find their place in these uncertain times we live in.” ~ High Society

Time travelling our thoughts to when there was only darkness, High Society is in splendid form with a rather earth-shattering track that will have you thinking about how you perceive yourself. They are supremely brilliant here and bravely transport us to an exceptionally memorable moment that many have experienced before.

Hard to Breathe from Herts/Essex, UK-based alternative rock/grunge band High Society is a rather gripping experience that takes you through the rollercoaster of life. Stitched with a thrill-a-second mix of a time-is-ticking euphoria to the veins that will stir you into a new mode of thinking, this is a lock-the-doors and shake to the ribs track, that shall get you in the zone again.

Anna Wells became the UK’s brightest pop luminary with her self-actualized single, No More

Starting with the syncopated bluesy piano, Anna Wells’ latest progressive synth-pop single, No More, due for release on August 18th, 2022, instantly draws you in through the quirkiness that assures you that the Essex, UK-residing artist is autonomously electric enough to deserve your undivided attention.

The dance-worthy, marginally Avant-Garde beats and sporadically theatric vocals could sell the record alone; the empowered and self-actualized lyrics heighten the listening experience to the nth degree.

“I don’t need that kind of man in my life no more because I’m not so insecure anymore”, may just be the lyric of the year – if prizes go for those. It perfectly encapsulates theh human proclivity to martyr ourselves to misery through the subconscious belief we don’t deserve more. I officially love her.

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.
