Good Vibe

Valiancy gives us our ‘Good Vibes’ fix in his latest alt-pop sonic sanctum.

With the sweet harmonic Beach Boys-style soul against the Saul Williams-Esque heavy beats, Valiancy’s latest alt-indie pop fix, Good Vibes, delivers what it says on the tin. Not through condescending euphoria peddling tropes, but through exuding nothing but transcendent soul that remains sympathetic to the reasons we need good vibes tracks in the first place.

The songwriter and producer orchestrated a soundscape unique enough to pique your interest and pull you in, yet experimentalism was notably secondary to ensuring that the infusion of harmonic pop vocals and ensnaring alt electro beats became a sure-fire hit of catharsis.

Chicago band Geekd are back with the groovy tune of ‘Taylor-Taylor’

Geekd are back with the groovy tune of ‘Taylor-Taylor‘ and this is an indie-rock wonderland of music to spill through the waves of the world and into our lost hearts.

A Chicago neo-psychedelic rock project led by Christian Moreno, Geekd has a sound that could be described as The Addams Family meets Alice in Wonderland and they take us on a vivid journey that sounds like no other. This is a band that make music that inspires.

You wish that you could see her more and she is always on your mind. You dream about her all the time and wish that you were together always. Things can’t be like that right now and this is a tough time but you will rebound and hopefully be together when the time is right,

Taken off the EP ‘The Fairytale Starlight‘, this one of the best singles from this release due to the diverse sounds and outstanding guitar work.

Chicago band Geekd stroll in with a song that could be mistaken for an Oasis riff. They soon show they signature sound and this is a great track, so punchy, the bass gives you shivers and this is one for the books. ‘Taylor-Taylor‘ is a rockin’ theme track for 2020 and this sets the mood nicely whatever the time of the day.
