Where they Gone: KNARS sees the bankers laughing on the most important single of 2023 called World is Burning

Telling us all the facts inside the cruel world of politics and banking which seems designed to hurt those who need money the most, KNARS boils our feelings and shall summon an energy which opens up those wounds which many are still healing from on the epic new single, World is Burning.

Created by the Dutch lyricist, music producer and filmmaker, Martijn Holtslag, KNARS is a massively reputable musician who has shown us his deepest frustrations on this memorable experience.

He shows us what is really happening. In raw detail. Wow. This is surely one of the most revealing tracks made this year. Or ever. KNARS is his name. Respect has been gained. It takes a  lot of gusto to tell it like this. He’s not wrong, is he?

With a beat so catchy and lyrics to wake up the sleepy..or tired..we are thrilled to the core on this brilliant single to play until the world does finally sizzle into nothingness.

Why You Bitter: Pretty Killer spikes our veins with something rather special on Blood Sugar

Recently signed to We Are Triumphant and gliding us far from any previous discomfort, Pretty Killer takes a naughty nibble out of a few alluring romantic rainbow-sprinkled doughnuts on the saucy Blood Sugar.

Pretty Killer is a Worcester, Massachusetts-based fusion of nu-punk, electro-pop, hip-hop, grunge, and punk coated with lots of tasty treats to munch on.

Influenced by a wide array of artists such as Nirvana, Blink-182, Mac Miller, and Linkin Park, Pretty Killer sees the death of genres on the horizon and heads straight towards it. They believe in letting go of the rigid, outdated idea that bands must stay in their genre lane and are carving a new path.” ~ Pretty Killer

This is a venom-drinking boost of a track to sip on rather excitedly when that night out gets a bit dirty and turns into a rollercoaster where stories will be told for generations.

Blood Sugar from Worcester, Massachusetts-based indie electro-pop/rap/punk band Pretty Killer is the kind of track so many will smile with. This is that moment when you know you’re totally hooked on someone, and can’t seem to shake off the scent no matter what the time of day.

Burning out another bottle and swaying almost horizontally, we are treated rather exponentially on this ripper of a soundtrack.

Sometimes when two lips sync together, not even science can explain the connection.

The Latino fusionist, ROLF has released his most seductive track to date with OTRA NOCHE DE AMANTES

To follow on from his 2021 debut single, Soltera, the Latino alt-pop artist, ROLF unleashed his vibe-packed 6-track EP, ILUSIONES. For new fans to his seductively soulful style, OTRA NOCHE DE AMANTES is the ultimate introduction.

With the Spanish lyricism, for English monolingual minds, there’s an air of mystery. When the lyrics are translated, ROLF keeps his enigmatic allure which also resonates in his fusion of spacey ambient electronica, Latin pop, and RnB.

To amplify the demure energy, ROLF brought in jazz and rock nuances to ensure that you are well and truly transfixed by the outro. OTRA NOCHE DE AMANTES may be a short and sweet track, but considering that it delivers 2-minutes of aural bliss, it leaves nothing to be desired.

OTRA NOCHE DE AMANTES is now available to stream on Spotify.

After soothing our heartbroken ears on the excellent ‘Autumn 2015‘ from September 2021, Dennyiah shows us a natural way to live on the beautifully-projected new single ‘Sense of the Rain‘.
