Hungarian multi-instrumentalist ViO is at his best with the instrumental gem ‘Chapter Five’

Equanimity - A Futuristic Jazz Tale by ViO

Taken off his much-awaited first studio album ‘Equanimity: A Futuristic Jazz Tale‘, ViO sends us into a better place with his quality shining through to magnetic levels of enjoyment on ‘Chapter Five‘.

The world-renowned Viktor Haraszti aka ViO is a no-fixed-format Hungarian-born Netherlands-based indie jazz sax player, multi-instrumentalist, producer, and sound engineer.

This is what I love about being an artist. I can improve my style, mix my influences, deal with new technology and produce something unexpected.” ~ ViO

Sending us a really insightful track that will have you in a much better mood than before, ViO sizzles with a truly mesmerizing performance of the very highest standard possible. There are no vocals needed as we hear a true master who is intrinsically connected with his chosen craft, as he gives the world an instrumental single to be at one with while there is so much unnecessary destruction on the television.

Hitting his first notes behind the piano as a seven-year-old, he later picked up the clarinet at age 11. Seven years later, he
got his first diploma at the famous Bela Bartok Conservatory in Budapest.” ~ ViO

Chapter Five‘ from Netherlands-based indie jazz sax player and multi-instrumentalist ViO, is a stunning experience that will have you closing your eyes and tapping your feet to the sounds of a true great at work. This is the tranquil piece of art that we all needed to hear – as we lather our senses into a world that is so much safer and calming – to inject an Eastern-like vibe into our lives that have struggled to thrive recently.

Full On Conditions: Dora Donaldson feels those unwanted tight chains on ‘If This Is Your Love’

As she plots her cunning escape from someone who is keeping her away from the person who she wants to be, Dora Donaldson defies gravity and glides away as she needs to feel like herself again on the terrifically honest new single ‘If This Is Your Love‘.

Dora Donaldson is a Hungarian-American-Swiss indie-pop singer-songwriter and Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia-based multi-talented artist.

”“If This Is Your Love” acts as step one — recognizing when control is disguised as love (whether romantic, platonic, familial or societal). ~ Dora Donaldson

Dora Donaldson presents such a courageous comprehension and sings with a real finesse that is highly extraordinary. She seems to keep you so captivated from the first moment onwards – as she flies up above and gets far away from this evil heart that has kept her away – from the true path for this inventive soul to flourish freely as she deserves.

If This Is Your Love‘ from the Hungarian-American-Swiss indie-pop singer-songwriter from Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia named Dora Donaldson, indicates a true beauty in an often cold world due to her luscious vocals – and incredible lyrics made from the heart – that might have you shaking in disbelief. This is a brave woman who has decided that enough is enough, as she flaps her gorgeous angelic wings away from the blind love that she regrets getting involved with in the first place. Sung with real strength, this is an anthem for anything who needs some inspiration-  to get away from that horrible person – that is greedily keeping you for themselves until they are finished with your cherished soul.

Perfect Pill release ‘Reverie’: simmering, hungry rock from Hungary

It’s hard not to revel in ‘Revererie’ – with a crunching grunge tone driving up against the clean, powerful vocals of Perfect Pill’s lead singer. Its sombre, minor led melodies give way to heaps of emotional lyrics portraying a ghoulish sense of beauty within the track and proves this Hungarian band easily have the nous and songwriting smarts to gain a broader cross-country appeal for alternative and underground 

If you’re a fan of alternative grunge with a markedly exoctic oeuvre to it, look no further than ‘Reverie’. It’s heavy, it’s emotional and provides all of the release to the angst that’s been bubbling beneath the surface of many in one, fell, three minute swoop. Definitely check it out.
