You Wanted Easier Than I: Daniella Spadini burns with disappointment of false promises on her stunning 2nd single ‘7:30’

After carefully bringing us a superb shining light on her debut single ‘Part Of You‘, Daniella Spadini wonders why her ex set her fire alive and then foolishly ran away when things got a bit harder on ‘7:30‘.

Daniella Spadini is a rural Northern California-born, Boston-based, flower and dog lover, indie-pop artist and Berklee College of Music Songwriting undergrad student ’21.

After formally being in a top 40 cover band before her studies, she has been bursting to release her 2nd single and this is a marvelous effort, packed full of powerful vocals which have you breathless at times.

Inspired by her peculiar outlook on the world, 21-year-old Daniella Spadini has been writing music for as long as she can remember.” ~ Daniella Spadini

This is the story about feeling like you were so in love and then things turned so fast, as your empty heart soon felt upset from all the unreliable stories and sneaky webs, which were only undesirably dusty and liar-filled.

Sung with a reflective edge, we are reminded of Daniella’s pure voice, which leaves your neck and back twitching in utter delight.

7:30‘ from the highly promising Northern California-born, Boston-based indie-pop artist Daniella Spadini, is a radiant effort that is full of wonderful vocals which has you mightily impressed. She sings with so much freedom and love at each turn, as you turn her up and let each note take you to euphoric places.

Sometimes it doesn’t always work out as others are ultimately selfish and narrow-minded, but if you always remember what you stand for, you will always recover quicker than you think.

Manchester rapper Mr Jones ft AEC releases new single ‘Fire’

The northern rapper Mr Jones has dropped his new single ‘’Fire’’ featuring AEC. It’s explicit, it’s straight to the point and is not afraid to speak the truth.

Fire is a Hip-hop rap track, but there are the occasional rock elements, which at first when you listen you would not expect to hear. AEC is the other artist who features on this single, he brings the deep vocals and eerie distorted guitar riffs to the up-beat rap in a way that is intriguing to listen too.

Mr Jones is not one that cares about what his lyrics say or how they could be portrayed by the listeners, instead he embraces it and creates something that he wants to be honest and real.

The way in which two completely different genres of music combined together to create Fire is what 2020 needs to be able to experiment and even if you wouldn’t normally find them compatible it can work in your favor, which is exactly what this single does.

PREMIERE: Soul Newcomer Kai Exos Announces Video For Fire & Brew

The softspoken LA-based singer-songwriter Kai Exos answered fan requests for a video with a simple Instagram post last week: “my new music video by Indrani drops 02-02.”

An independent rep for the elusive artist revealed that the genre-bending single achieved 750K digital streams this past week. Exos spent the past couple years as a songwriting gun-for-hire, but seems to have shifted back to solo performer with a series intimate pop-up shows across North America. Fire & Brew sees his first release since the critical acclaim of the title track off his debut album, Telegraph, that reached #18 on U.S. radio charts in 2015.

“We co-created such a natural love story here… the piece is a powerful expression of masculine and feminine energy,” says celebrated music video director, Indrani, best known for her work with Beyoncé, Lady Gaga, Alicia Keys and David Bowie.

Written about the vulnerability of love when physical aspects fall away, the strong melody rides lush production with all-female background vocals on a wave of emotion. Self-penned and recorded at the legendary Capitol Records, opaque visuals explore light play to hauntingly reveal the all-consuming nature of the [now dissolved] couple’s relationship.

With nods to Sam Cooke and Prince, Fire & Brew was co-produced with Atlanta powerhouse R&B duo POKET. The artist instantly connected with the drummer-half of the duo, Bennie Rodgers II (Mariah Carey, Keri Hilson) when Exos appeared for his notable live Daytrotter session. Ron Avant (of Anderson.Paak’s Free Nationals), a longtime collaborator, played keys on the original recording. “Kai started out in church and a lot of his roots are on this record; it’s that classic song structure that takes you back to The Motown Era,” added Rodgers.

The video premieres worldwide on VEVO at the close of Grammy Week, Friday 2nd February and streams there, and is also available on TIDAL. Toronto’s VMP Music Group in an earlier statement, said “He [Exos] wanted Fire & Brew to be a standalone single. We’re excited about his next album and can right now only say… it’s Kai doing what he does best. Kai’s sophomore project is slated for Summer 2018.”
