Looking deeper within: Mysterious indie-electronic artist Itsallzenhere fascinates with love-torn single ‘I Was So Blind’

Itsallzenhere is back with his love-torn story about a crush that seems to have gotten away on his single called ‘I Was So Blind‘.

Unintelligiblekai aka Itsallzenhere is a fascinating Greece-based underground indie-electronic musician who has made a song that forces you to look much deeper within than most music out there, due to a break-away style that is ever-evolving and original.

It seems as though this is an artist who is dealing with so much pain from being with someone that he truly adored. With a voice that breaks up on occasion and forces you to listen really intently, he is expressing his pain to what happened. He appears to still be dealing with it and is working out in his mind what transpired and to start the healing process.

When you are in love or lustful, it is so hard to make sense of things when they end. You tend to blame yourself and this only leads to a longer time to heal. Its easier said than done to move on, take it on the chin, learn from mistakes and turn the page but this is the only way to be happier again, faster.

With a unique music style, he is a pleasure to listen to and you feel that there is much potential here if he can market himself well, find a close community of fans that keeps on growing and shares his music to new friends. Or he might just want to make music for himself as a healing process and perhaps we will never know. That is the beauty of music, it is there to make us think, inspire and to calm our minds from the crazy world before us.

I Was So Blind‘ from Itsallzenhere is a fascinating journey of simmering sounds that is like a mystery we love to find out more about.

Hear this thought-provoking new single on YouTube and see what he does next on IG.

Emerald Dream release latest Rock single Acheron Galaxy

Infusing that old school Rock essence through the latest piece ‘Acheron Galaxy’ by Emerald Dream, it’s manic, it’s loud and it’s an insane piece of music.

Starting off with the thunderous shreds on the guitar, adding in that hard-hitting drum beat as the instrumentation serves pure loudness as the volume is amped up and everything becomes a bit more chaotic, adding in a fast pace tap on the piano keys to intertwine with the melody.

Everything about this piece gives the lovers of Rock and Roll what they want, the vocals have a gruff sounding tone to them, speeding up a lot as the tune on the piano keys gets faster and faster, than dragging out the instrumentation and the vocals to create that suspenseful rhythm as everything kicks back into full volume, insane guitar solos, the forceful band on the drum and hitting every piano key perfectly, everything joining together in the best way.

Now if you haven’t checked this one out by Emerald Dream then you must.

Listen to Acheron Galaxy by Emerald Dream by heading on over to Youtube now.
