Sean Millea – Little Bit of Sunshine: Compassionately Emotive Indie

Up and coming Alt Indie artist Sean Millea dropped their seminal single “Little Bit of Sunshine” during lockdown. It may be a rough demo, but if you’ve got a soul, the tender evocative nature of the release won’t fail to resonate.

The track kicks off with delicately warm Neo-Classic keys before Sean Millea’s distinctive beyond definition vocals find a perfect place atop of the ever-evolving soundscape which slides into a feat of melodically explorative Alt Indie which pulls in faint yet masterful nuances of Hip Hop while Sean Millea offers an aural experience which isn’t all too different to what you can expect from the Verve.

Little Bit of Sunshine is as absolving as music comes. Do yourselves a favour and indulge in this compassionately emotive mix.

Sky Changes – New Shoes: An Instantly Engorging Melting Pot of Art Rock, Dream Pop and Shoegaze

From the first angular notes in the latest track “New Shoes” from Chicago Alt-Rock outfit Sky Changes, we were hooked. Their unique amalgamation of Art Rock, Dream Pop and Indie Shoegaze will leave fans of Radiohead and Slowdive alike enamoured.

Not only did the dreamy soundscape allow Sky Changes to assert their distinction and ingenuity on the airwaves. New Shoes is also an instantly engorging melodic masterpiece where every evolution will leave you with an even more potent dose of awe.

With every progression, the tight yet chorally accordant instrumentals seem to gain intricacy and amass alchemy while the hazily-blissful vocals remain a beguilingly soft constant. The muted vocals magnetically draw you deeper into the track to extract the meaning behind the New Shoes metaphor.

It isn’t every day we hear such a fresh revival of Alt 90s sounds. We’d recommend getting Sky Changes on your radar sooner than later.

Vvolla – Never Untrue: Blissfully Resolving Neo-Soul Pop Served with a Twist of Psych

Irish fourpiece Vvolla has made their debut with the blissfully resolving Neo-Soul Pop single “Never Untrue”. Within it, you’ll find layers of beguilingly nostalgic tonal warmth paired with Emily Lannin’s distinctively alluring vocal dynamic.  Vvolla makes it all too easy to feel right at home in the Jazz-soaked melodies in Never Untrue. Even from the first hit.

I especially appreciated the Blues Rock guitar solos which take the soundscape to the next level thanks to the nuances of psychedelia which were definitely unexpected after ingesting the chorally sweet accordance which led up to the kaleidoscopic solo.
