Bad Teddy aka Dead Mans Wonderland is a UK-based indie emo-rap solo artist who assembles an original mixture of music that will shock the innocent souls in the world.
Disturbing our frightened senses to devastating effect on a moody beat that tremours like an upcoming tsunami, Dead Mans Wonderland creeks open the door but stays stuck into a vortex of self-doubt. After closer inspection, we find that these emotionally-wreaked scars are holding him back him that true potential – which are hiding mysteriously inside his fearsome heart – as he wishes that his previous company didn’t leave him in this sickening lurch again.
‘Devil On My Shoulder‘ from the UK-based indie emo-rapper Dead Mans Wonderland, is a haunting track that has the fire burning from hell aura with that purtrid smell that scares many and interests others. Sung and rapped with a gritty style that is ultimately a call for help from the blood and tears that has him locked into this mental dungeon, which has him in the darkness with seemingly no way out.

New Jersey’s multi-talented Gen Dietzel emerges from the depths of the underworld with ‘Haunted‘. This is a eerily brilliant song that catches you by surprise and engulfs your thoughts.
Gen Dietzel is a singer-songwriter and also a very talented writer who sings about how she feels deep inside. There is a real element of pain in her voice as she unwraps all the things in life that are keeping her soul down in the dumps, waiting for a fresh start. Gen has a style that is so hauntingly beautiful as you get lost in her voice, you look for the cookie crumbs on the floor and follow them. You know the journey is going to be worth it and it certainly is.
‘Haunted‘ from Gen Dietzel is a scary but brilliant release that captures the mood of 2020 just perfectly. The world right now has been caught in a big messy bottle, with so many terrible leaders, a world that is closed off mostly and the mood is so somber. Being in love is so tough right now too and you feel like you are haunted, nothing is going the way you want it to go.
Her vocals are so unique and you are transported into a dark world that need salvation so badly. Music heals all they say and this is a song that makes you think, makes you sad and inspires at the same time. A rare gift indeed that if nurtured correctly, can only blossom into something beyond, what it was first intended for.
Minneapolis musician A.Patrick is breathlessly brilliant on ‘Never Saw You Again‘ and this is a true story about how love can end so quickly.
A.Patrick is a Bedroom producer, vocalist, and pianist based safely indoors from the wild winds of the world in 2020. A new artist who is making a name rather quickly. This is electo-fused chocolate delight to lap up like a hungry kitty cat. The twists and turns are so decadently tremendous, the vivid vocals catch your immediate attention right away and something happens to your body. You get lost in the moment and this is how music heals so nicely. There is true pain here and the path to redemption.
”This is about someone who I did not predict would ever leave my life- but they did. However, in the back of my mind, I always feared it.”- A.Patrick on the new track ‘Never Saw You Again‘ which is a great indie-piano pearl of a track with meaning as things that were so bright before, but now are suddenly dark and empty. The haunting melodies take you beyond what you thought you had heard before and this is a whirlwind of intricate sounds to devour.
‘Never Saw You Again‘ from A.Patrick is a track that has risen above most. With a 2nd single ‘Time‘ to enjoy on this new release too, we have a new musician to love and cherish. This is that timeless type of music you tell your Grandchildren about.
Or1gin and Nellie S rip through with the new track that is a self-reflective indie-electro song called ”Ghost”.
The point or place where something begins, arises, or is derived. This is the story of letting go of that ghost and what is holding you back. You have shared special memories but now the time to move on.
This is such a powerful song that makes you think of past moments in your life and how we could be dragging along ghosts with us. Those can haunt you and can also weigh your soul down.
Driven by the sensational vocals of the breathless Nellie S, we are treated to a sonic memory that will be timeless. I love the beat from Or1gin and everything about this song screams quality. ”Ghost” digs up old memories but can also inspire us to change our ways. This is what music is really about.
Solo rock artist Echoes of Her has released new track Reflections: a sombre, haunting dark and abrasive rock track.
The sense of loneliness and despair is apparent with ‘Reflections’, and with vocal drawls drawing comparisons to the like of Pearl Jam’s Eddie Vedder – Echoes of Her takes listeners on a dark, loud and grinding road. Not like many other releases on our calendar, it’s perhaps that melancholic guitar dread would be a suitable sub-genre for this style of emotional and highly affective rock.
If you’re into experimental rock with lots of howls, guitars and drama – Echoes of Her are well worth looking into with this latest release. Just don’t stand in the mirror too long.
Chris Wareham has the ubiquitous sound of a bedroom artist. His latest track Sting Me Down illustrates the image of the pensive Acoustic Singer Song writer holed up in his North London residence.
The talented solo artist exposes his soul through his music, allowing his audience to hear him stripped naked by his lyrics that resonate through the soundwaves of his haunting voice, honest lyrics and deftly strummed guitar. It’s nice to hear an artist sticking to his humble acoustic roots and not striving to be yet another Ed Sheeran wannabe. He sings with playful humility that makes the minimalistic sound truly a pleasure to listen to. He lets his voice dominate the tracks, not hiding behind instrumentals or crass reverberation to bring his music to life. You can hear each and every lick of the string throughout the progression of the track.
Fans are already begging for an album from the talented musician, and I’ve joined the que behind his loyal following. He’s created waves in the underground musical Mecca for acoustic artists in London.

With an evocative title like King on the Cross, you know Mystic Tears are cooking up some kind of trouble. Structured like a sing-along and performed with a blistering disdain directed towards theological figures and the atrocities performed in their names, King on the Cross brings up some of what music lost when psychedelic rock fell out of fashion. There’s something really ear-catching about the juxtaposition of simple, repetitive verses underscored with sinister themes and Mystic Tears know just how to capture that haphazard magic and shoot it with intent and precision.
The bassline walks tall and confidently while vocals echo through the halls toward a distant, menacing distorted guitar. Despite the atmosphere, there is no energy lost. Harmonically rich sound effects via the guitar keep things nice and interesting and the building layers of vocals climax but always come back for more. This is a song that doesn’t only seek to make its point. It doesn’t stop until it’s left you haunted. Whether preaching to the choir or converting new members of the congregation, King on the Cross is sure to draw a crowd for Mystic Tears.
Mystic Tears makes music that is as enigmatic as the project’s name. Their single, “Shine” is haunting and beautiful – a melancholic ballad that makes me think of the quieter moments of artists such as Soundgarden or Nine Inch Nails, just to mention a few. The drums have a floating groove that really fits with the sparse, gentle guitars and with the sultry vocal performances. The track has a nice, sustained feel throughout its duration, but it definitely opens up to a stunning climax towards its end. The playing gets more intense, and new layers of tone seamlessly bring something new to the mix. The beautiful lead guitar work and stunning vocal solos make me think of timeless acts such as Pink Floyd, but re-imagined in a refreshing modern way.
In conclusion, this track feels like a musical journey: its arrangement its deceptively simple and direct, but the song’s emotional impact is huge. This is one of those tracks that really compel you to focus and listen, stopping whatever else you were doing at the moment and solely concentrate on the music!
Steve Cornell finds a perfect middle ground between timeless Beatles-channelling psychedelia and rough, unforgiving grunge evoking Chris Cornell (no relation?) with his song Save Grace. While the song doesn’t reach the treacherous emotional peaks of the latter, it does pull in on the same dread that has tinged so many verses throughout decades of heartbroken songwriters staring into the abyss and coming back with a song to share.
The hopeless feeling emanating from the track can be applied to so many relatable heart aches from the personal to the existential. The affected guitar helps illustrate this dystopian noir of a soundscape with touches of color and beauty amongst the vulnerable, pained verses which urge the listener to head their warnings. Save Grace is a classic that we may not want to play until we’re ready to sit and listen intently, and in that fashion, we can maintain that it won’t be wasted falling on deaf ears of people in high spirits. This is a song for darker hours and it’s better kept that way.
