Looking deep inside your soul: ‘Give Me A Sign’ from the supremely talented multilingual Pop-Rock artist Corinna Jane deals with loss in her own way

Her voice has you transfixed so intently as the story of feeling no pain with a loss, even though you know sadness should be inside you. This is a new single sung with unwavering honesty from the self-motivated German-born, Franco-British singer-songwriter, travel presenter, model and actress Corinna Jane, as she wonders in nature for inspiration on her new pop-rock single ‘Give Me A Sign‘.

Her voice reaches the deepest parts of your body as we delve into dealing with pain and making your own path through life, as you find what really makes you tick inside. She sings with meaning and honesty as her deep lyrics seep into your heart with luster and passion; speaking about feelings that you should feel but for some reason, just don’t. Perhaps the relationship wasn’t close or you are feeling numb at the moment from the freezing world around you. Your heart has been hurt too much and you need time to process what has really happened.

This is a singer-songwriter with such a spectacular style, her strong voice catches you unaware at first and transforms your thoughts to your own feelings and what you feel deep within.

‘Recording the track was like letting two kids run through a sweet shop,’ says Corinna. ‘We were picking and choosing whatever came to our minds and the track grew in a way that neither of us had conceived before writing together.’

The story about how you know you should feel pain but don’t is very relevant in this cold world. Sometimes you feel sad at things that seems small for others, but for you is very meaningful.

Give Me A Sign‘ from London-based singer-songwriter Corinna Jane is a track you won’t be able to forget, as her piercing eyes look deep inside your soul and her honest vocals make your heart beat a bit faster. This is a fiercely indie musician who makes music from the heart and always keeps it real. In this fake world full of flashy fakes, this is much appreciated and to be admired.

Watch this nature inspired video on YouTube and follow her music journey on IG and Facebook.

Versailles upstart ALT Rock band Prosody reach for the stars with powerful single ‘’Neptune’’

If you were my Neptune /You would make me so pure/I would take you somewhere. Formed in 2017, ‘Prosody’ are making a name for themselves with their good sound and strong lyrical abilities. They are an enjoyable listen and seem like they are climbing up the European music ladder.

Previously in ‘Newborn’ in 2016, you can tell that the band are quite familiar with each other which makes such a difference. Bands take many months and years to know what each other is thinking and this can’t be faked. ‘Prosody’ is off their album ‘Keep Your Dreams Awake’ and is a fun song to listen to. Vocally I feel that an extra backing vocalist would help tremendously to get their sound out more. 

After only playing in Paris so far, let’s keep an eye out for this newish band to make a name for themselves next summer at festivals in Europe. They certainly have all the ingredients to make it big.

Persepolis – No Pleasure Inside: It only takes Two

Persepolis are a French Progressive Alternative Rock band hailing from Mont-de-Marsan. Whilst their lyrics are in English, their styling is delectably European. They command a certain je nes sais quoi in their sound. The drummer and vocalist utilises deep ratting drumbeats as an under tone to their delectably light riffs whilst projecting emotionally charged vocals.

The band members Milo Dumartin and Robin Jourdan may just be the best alternative rock duo since The White Stripes. They have a wonderfully melancholic sound that’s highly resonant. The band count Radiohead & The Smashing Pumpkins as their top musical influences, they’ve adopted their pensive style along with more upbeat indie acts such as The Hives, BLOC Party and the Arctic Monkeys. They subtly infuse the Indie Grunge harmonies into their music to create a mellifluous sound which draws you by the violent rage of the guitars.

No Pleasure Inside is just one of the tracks off their debut album Sixty Miles An Hour which is available to download or purchase via Bandcamp.
