Glam rock goes indie pop in Dvrk Romantics’ siren of a single, Trouble Won’t Wait

With the dark romanticism of the lyrics that will stir the soul of any Wordsworth, and Lord Bryon fans, Dvrk Romantics stayed true to their moniker while sonically blowing the competition with their cinematic blockbuster of an X-Rated single, Trouble Won’t Wait.

Rachel Di Biaso’s glam rock meets pop femme fatale pop energy across the raunchy guitar licks and snapping beats that drive the anthemic seduction right through the riot of siren-esque hit is a potent blend that will undoubtedly see Dvrk Romantics lauded as the best breakthrough act of 2022.

Seemingly, everything that Micky Waters turns to aural gold; after moving into this alchemic duo from being the bassist in The Answer, who supported Rolling Stones and ACDC, he’s going to manoeuvre those driving basslines right into the hearts of every glam rock, pop and indie lover alike. If you’ve always wanted to back a band before they become the next big thing, the time is NOW.

Trouble Won’t Wait was officially released on September 30th. Hear it on Spotify.

Jake Inzerra has unleashed his seductive 80s glam indie-pop earworm, Elevator

There was no forgetting Jake Inzerra after his punchy indie-pop hit, No Lips; the singer-songwriter and producer is back on glam form in his latest single, Elevator.

Believe it or not, Inzerra’s Elevator is just as seductive as Aerosmith’s Love in an Elevator, which may have a fair amount to do with the raucous bite in his vocal timbre that sinks its teeth just as deep as Adam Levine’s.

I’ve long held the theory that all of the best artists carry androgyny into their music; Inzerra affirmed it with his infectiously hook-filled hit that soaks into your soul as much as your synapses.

Jake Inzerra’s latest single, Elevator, is due for official release on May 6th. You can check it out for yourselves via YouTube.

KC-J – Lovely: Archaically Expressive Aural Glam-Pop

If you’ve forgotten just how refreshing it is to listen to an artist which will truly shock you with their expressive style, you can remind yourselves by checking out singer-songwriter KC-J’s single “Lovely”.

It’s not every day you stumble across a vocalist as striking as Kate Bush, Stevie Nicks, Paloma Faith or Bjork, yet KC-J has gone against contemporary convention and created a theatrically archaic delight with Lovely; just one of the four sensational singles from her Latest EP.

Even though the soundscape is dramatic through the orchestral pulls of the violins and glissando sweeps on the piano KC-J still keeps the track resonant and relatable through her ability to let her soul slip through the vocals. If you could imagine a mashup between Amanda Palmer and Amy Winehouse, you’d get a pretty good idea of the dramatic yet deliciously Neo-Soul tinged style.

You can check out KC-J’s latest EP “Love Ditties” including Lovely for yourselves by heading over to Spotify now.
