Wipe Those Tears: Zasxee shows us the way to relieve past pain on ‘Hemingway’

With a kind tone which certainly feels like she knows that something needs to end but doesn’t want it to, Zasxee shows us her incredible DIY talents on the latest single release that will put you into a thoughtful trance called ‘Hemingway‘.

Zasxee is a striking indie alt-rock multi-talented singer-songwriter, music producer, cat lover, bassist, and music engineer. She makes a blend of hypnotic music mixture of treats that has you moving into a new world – as you feel her dynamic skill-set right next to you- that has your curious ears feeling warm and healed from the blustery coldness outside your creaking door.

Her lyrics are smartly written and has you quickly wrapped into a rather strange mood, as you turn up the volume so you can fully immerse yourself into her mindset. This is a wondrous effort that has you so reflective – her vocals leads you away from the darkness and instead seated by the window – so that you may get that fresh air needed for your brain to function properly again.

Hemingway‘ from the youthfully promising Zasxee and her cute kitty cat Piper, is a lovely song that is packed full of intrigue. Her vocals are hard to hear at first as she mysteriously locks you into her stunning spellbinding spell of wonder. This is a track to play when you feel a a bit down after a break-up and need some further inspiration to brush off the pain – so you may confidently move forward with your life. To quickly find a new path that was meant for you and not one that was slippery like before, is the only way to avoid those temptation-filled pitfalls of doom.

Hear this lovely new single on Spotify and see more on her IG channel.

9 Pilgrims by Jono Bono Heyes

World music is an odd term, normally used for music which is identified with or at least influenced by the musical traditions of one particular place or culture. But surely it is a term which should be used for music which is the blending of music from across the planet, a sort of trans-global amalgam, a patch work quilt of sonic influences. If that was indeed the definition then  Jono Heyes would be its leading light.

Here joined by Mama Yeva’s striking vocals he makes music which is wonderfully rootless, crosses borders when and where it likes and truly is a pan-global musical blend. West African folk vibes join jazz motifs for a sultry, late night dance and haunting tribal voices fly alongside soaring vocals and the result is deliciously dark, fantastically unique and wonderfully oblivious to  genre or generation.
