‘Let the Music’ from Berlin-based Patrizia is a fun journey of dreamy pop pureness

Let the Music‘ from Berlin-based Patrizia is a fun journey of dreamy pop pureness that will make you smile and possibly dance.

Patrizia was born into an Italian immigrant family who lived in small town Germany. At the age of just 6, she discovered a dance studio. This formed the foundation of meshing music with performance. Her creative ambition was not welcome in her lower working class, suburban world. However, a move to Berlin was on the cards and this would change everything for this young musician. She just wanted to dance and sing. Now, with the freedom to be creative in a safe environment that wasn’t small-minded, she could fully express herself.

I love the pop pureness here, this is about letting the music come to you and not to force anything in life. Just turn the music up and do what come naturally to you as this is the best way to live in life. The beat is so 80’s and this is so great to listen to. There is innocence here, the dancing and fun music resonates in a world that can be so cold.

Let the Music‘ from Berlin-based Patrizia is the type of song that makes you happy and smile. Simple pleasures that inspire and makes the day a bit more tolerable. This talented singer & actress has just kissed our ears with this gorgeous song.

Zola’s Alchemic New Release “Easy” is the Soulfully Moody Aural Gem the Airwaves Were Waiting For

When an up and coming artist is able to leave you mesmerised before the first verse has run through, you know that you’ve just stumbled across an alchemic aural gem, which is exactly what happened when we listened to the soulfully moody standout single “Easy” from Zola.

If you could imagine what Florence and the Machine would sound like if they adopted a dark electronic sound, you’ll get a good idea of what you can expect from the seventeen-year-old Cambridge, MA-based singer-songwriter.

The massive production of Easy allows the transfixingly authentic track to swallow your consciousness whole. If there’s any justice left in the music industry, Zola will be able to easily climb to the top of the Indie Pop charts. If you think that sounds like high praise just wait until you feel the high which you’ll get when you hit play.

LA Americana artist Natalie Duque sings with such sadness on the new single ‘Stay’

Natalie Duque sings with such sadness about a lost family member on the new single ‘Stay‘.

Natalie infuses soulful folk melodies with a pop-infused style, her music is so sad but beautiful at the same time. Her voice is stunning, almost haunting and with such pureness that gets your heart beating so much faster. Her delivery is masterful on this story of not being able to see a loved one for the last time.

Tomorrow is not promised. This is a sad story about how you didn’t get the chance to say goodbye. The roads were cold and and it was snowing. She didn’t get a chance to say goodbye and the next day, he didn’t make it. You regret this moment so much but there is nothing you can do now but cherish the memories of his life.

Natalie Duque has that type of voice that makes you stop and listen intently. ‘Stay‘ is about the loved one that sadly passed away and the indie-pop care with this song is quite beautiful from the LA singer.

This is about that feeling when you are looking at someone and you realize that everyone else is too. They take your breath away and you want to be with them so badly.

A smorgasbord of genres, ‘For One Night‘ mixes pop, reggaeton and dance hall that mixes together in a tasty Hartlepool pot of wonderful goodness, this helps in creating a unique and chart-worthy sound. This is the goal. These young ladies what to reach the top and they are focused on this and trying to avoid all unnecessary distractions.

Alt Pop singer Bex blazes in with ”Secondhand Smoke”

Bex is a Boston-based writer & singer-songwriter with influences from pop-rock, blues and also some neo-soul. She is back with her new song called ”Secondhand Smoke” that was released today.

What ever you breath in you need to believe it. Bex is no quitter and she has the Bonny & Clyde kind of love with this fantastic new pop track. Her vocals are wonderfully pure on this new song and I love the catchy lyrics. The vibe is fab throughout and Bex shows her smooth style.

Secondhand Smoke” from the Massachusetts local is perfect for those long road trips or to get you excited for the day. Without having a sneaky ciggie of course.  This is a simple song that catches the ear and this is a musician to watch. Her voice is so natural and she is poised to fully breakout soon.

‘It Wasn’t True’ is a tale of love that can’t be lost from Emilio Lanza

It Wasn’t True‘ is the fantastic new single from the laid-back soul of Italian singer-songwriter Emilio Lanza.

Emilio Lanza is a self-taught Italian indie-pop singer-songwriter who graduated with a university degree in engineering but music is what he loves. This passionate singer has used the skills he picked up before to transform his music into a worldly experience. He makes awesome music, filled with skill and beauty. He has experience with jazz and this shines though and adds a lovely element to the song. He is also a Certified Apple Pro with Logic Pro X and this has really helped him with the creative process in his music.

With an earthy feel and flouring with sonic and spectacular acoustic sounds, this is a love song with all the right ingredients. This is about a breakup that you don’t want to happen. All those rumors were untrue, the love must stay alive and you are confident that things will change. Your lover was avoiding and things seem rough right now. You refuse to give up and want this to work so much.

This is an experienced musician with lots of electronic beats to mix in with the finger-style acoustic music that Emilio excels at. This is a fine track and I love the sentiment and the whole sound that is projected through the whole experience here on ‘It Wasn’t True‘ from the wonderful Italian singer Emilio Lanza.

Nash brings us a tale of indie-pop pureness with ‘Every Time’

Nash brings us a tale of indie-pop pureness with ‘Every Time‘ that strides through into our ears.

After growing up in Moscow in a family of music lovers, music was Nash’s guide to life, helping him interpret, define and view the world. In a post-Soviet Russia, where rapid political and social changes produced a tense and aggressive atmosphere, Nash referred to music to cope with his emotional and sensitive nature. He listened to the likes of The Beatles and The White Stripes, and was massively influenced by their melodic sentiment and sound. He soon know what he had to do.

A move from Moscow to London followed and greatly inspired the talented singer-songwriter to do what he knows he came for. Play music and get a foot into the world of the legendary venues all over the City. This was the mission and he was ready now. His time to shine.

Every Time‘ is that road trip favorite, you like like play it on loud and get lost into the quality musicianship. This is an artist who has moved countries and found his home now. The way he sings is so pure and you just know he has amazing stories of playing live all over the lands. Nash brings us his story of being hard on himself but still has hope and this is sung so well. He has the seen the light and is now flourishing.

Mackenzie Shrieve has released her intimately absorbing Indie Folk Pop single “In the Before”

There are very few things in life more soothing than Mackenzie Shrieve’s compassionately inviting vocals. In her latest single “In the Before” which dropped on September 10th, her intimately comforting vocals perfectly match the Folk Pop instrumentals which are endearing and absorbing in equal measure.

I think the lyric “I don’t want you to slip away like every other moment in this Summer haze” legitimately broke my heart. The concepts which the track plays with will leave you awash with sun-kissed lovelorn nostalgia. It may be a rough ride, but the accordance, soul, and almost celestial level of ingenuity in the production will definitely soften the blow.

With plenty more in the pipeline for 2020 and beyond, Mackenzie Shrieve is well worth putting on your radar.

You can check out the official music video to In the Before via YouTube.

Sink into Maroney’s tenderly intimate Folk Pop single “Home”

Home” is just one of the tenderly intimate Folk Pop singles on the latest EP “Alur” from Sacramento-born, LA-based singer-songwriter Maroney.

The semi-orchestral, mellifluously magnetic single may draw you in gently, but before you know it, the accordant tones will be creeping beneath your skin and the lyrics will seriously test your capacity for compassion as you listen to the romantically resolving lyrics float around the stunning orchestration which could have only come from an artist with an affinity for Gospel, Bluegrass and Folk.

How celestial Home is, is no coincidence. The female vocals perfect the amorously evocative soundscape as they find reactive chemistry against Maroney’s soothing vocal timbre.
