The country cowboy with big goals: Pop singer Caesar gives us ‘The Chills’

Cat lover, singer-songwriter and young cowboy Caesar, is back to further enhance his music career with the new single ‘The Chills‘.

This charismatic indie artist has huge goals and a funky fresh fusion of genres intertwined in his soul that makes him stand out from rest of the curious crowd. His vocals are pure and genuine, the flamboyance only makes him more likable to each listener, as he grows his name around the world.

This is the story of love and how you feel so much for that special person in your life. All you want to do is be them and you will do whatever it takes.

If he can stay focused, put the hard work in to master his craft, get brand merchandise and other streams of income flowing nicely to help him pay for studio time and music videos, this is an artist that can rise to wherever he wants to take his music. ‘The Chills‘ from Caesar is a step forward for a young artist that shows the potential needed and just need to put the time in, stay patient and make quality music that inspires.

Kei Dii lays their amorous soul bare in the genre-transcending single ‘New Girl in Town’

Breaking artist Kei Dii transcended the notion of genre with their EP ‘Bar-Bies’ which dropped on October 15th, the perfect introduction to their unique brand of urban aural alchemy is undoubtedly ‘New Girl in Town’.

The amorously evocative single laces the romanticism of RnB with the convictive adoration which you will frequently find in Hip Hop, but you’ve never heard a track quite like this before.

It’s practically paradoxical for a track to offer such idyllic resolving melodies while simultaneously delivering hard-hitting energy. Yet, as New Girl in Town runs through, you’ll find that the momentum stems from Kei Dii’s galvanising vibe and passion which they project into the mix without filter, assimilation or constraint.

You can check out Kei Dii’s single New Girl in Town via Spotify.

London Alt-Indie Trio Alchemy3 Has Made Their Lockdown Debut with “Ride Us Through the Storm”

London-based trio Alchemy3 made their Alt-Indie debut on October 29th with the mesmerically compelling release “Ride Us Through the Storm”. Hit play and you’ll quickly come to realise how they came up with their moniker.

The high-vibe creative expression runs rampant through the tantalising soundscape, which is a minefield of aural curveballs, but each unexpected evolution in the single affirms that Alchemy3 have the ingenuity and the positivity to make a difference to the airwaves.

Ride Us Through the Storm is a track which utterly consumes you when you hit play, and I think we can all agree, aural escapism is more valuable now than ever. With vocals which share hypnotic reminiscence with the likes of Nadine Shah floating atop of the intricately orchestrated instrumental arrangement which mixes acoustic instruments with dreamy electric guitar notes, the single unravels as one of the most stylistically and lyrically profound singles I’ve heard this year.

You can check out Alchemy3’s debut single by heading over to Bandcamp.

Wavesy and Recet rip through on the electro-rap track ‘Reflections’

Wavesy and Recet rip through on the electro-rap track ‘Reflections‘, this is one of the best tracks of 2020 without any shadow of a doubt.

Wavesy is a personified dream that Cameron Poe created to help convey the old school rock and roll sound with a modern, darker R&B/rap sound that floats through the speaks like a bubble in the wind. This is a quality artist with lots to offer.

Recet is an acclaimed vocalist, drummer, composer, and producer from the thriving Denver music scene. He is a massive name to watch and this song showcases the great work that him and his music partner have made.

You reflect at what you have done in your life. You want to be different and to be yourself. Following your dreams and being yourself is so important to you. This is the core of your beliefs and you will carry on until you have achieved your goals. This is what really matters, not by how cool you are or how many fake friends you kinda know. This is the grown up world that you like to live in.

Wavesy and Recet are on savage form here and this rips a massive hole through the shame that has been 2020. ‘Reflections‘ is one of those songs you can’t stop listening to, the energy is electric and this is a proper song to chew on.

This is a good bunch of friends and family who are doing amazing things right now with their music. Sometimes music comes from strange times to help heal us.
