Tyler Cohen – How I Feel: Confessionally Captivating Dark Americana Folk Pop

Tyler Cohen’s latest single ‘How I Feel’ is a confessional Americana Folk Pop masterpiece. Winding bluesy notes coalesce with cold, choppy, jarring chord progressions to create a deeply ardent instrumental arrangement which Tyler Cohen’s vocals eventually join.

If you could imagine Jack Johnson on his darkest day, you’d be close to the mark getting an idea of the alluring magnetism in Tyler Cohen’s melancholy. There’s a slight gothic tinge to the wistfully lovelorn track, but the soul which emanates from the vocals harmoniously cuts right through giving How I Feel a dreamy Southern Americana air.

You can check out Tyler Cohen’s single How I Feel via Spotify.

Lanterns of Hope – There was This Girl: Restoratively Immersive Indie Folk Blues

Upward Over by Lanterns of Hope

Fans of morose romantic introspective wrapped up in a bed of restoratively light Indie Folk Blues guitar are going to want to turn their attention to the latest release from up and coming Washington-based artist Lanterns of Hope.

“There Was This Girl” was released on July 29th and provides a striking serving of authentic, candid, and captivating slightly vintage sound. The reminiscences which Lanterns of Hope shares with the likes of Leonard Cohen and Elliot Smith amplifies the accessibility of There Was This Girl, yet, plenty of distinction can be found in the raw human emotion which has been poured into the single. Narratively compelling tracks such as There Was This Girl will always be timeless.

You can stream and download Lanterns of Hope’s latest single There Was This Girl for yourselves by heading over to Bandcamp.
