Atlanta-based alt-folk singer-songwriter, Maq has made her debut with the experimentally blissful RnB track, Kaleidoscope. Her producer, Yoko, notably shared her vision of disrupting aural norms; by taking the majority of the focus away from the smoothly layered vocals, Kaleidoscope became a soundscape that you can’t help melting into.
We hope there’s plenty more soul-infused catharsis in the pipeline from this ambiently Avant singer-songwriter & producer duo who peruse art over perfection and narratives over hooks; they’re the ultimate indie power couple.
The word ‘arrestive’ may get thrown around a lot in reviews, but in the case of Hourigan’s Indie RnB Folk single “Fly Your Kite”, it’s more than justified.
The unfiltered soul which Hourigan projected into the Indie RnB mix has a way of crawling under your ribs as you drink in the organic accordant ecstasy in the sublimely serene soundscape.
If you could imagine what it would sound like if Jack Johnson, Hozier and Cosmo Sheldrake all collaborated on a single, you’d get an idea of how mesmerizingly transcendent Fly Your Kite is.
Lyrically, Fly Your Kite is a poignant message to the younger generations facing overwhelming levels of uncertainty. It’s a gentle optimism-invoking invitation to keep on going and to see past the crushing illusion society attempts to sell us.
