After a soft, artful and neo-classic intro, Mined Music’s electronic indie rock single, Rise Again, featuring Mr. Maph, Amanda Power and Dara Zusko, transgresses into a viscerally compelling ballad where the instrumentals are as complexly layered as the emotions.
With the vocalists finding harmony atop the fervent Slash-style solos towards the outro, Rise Again runs through with an all-consuming intensity that you’d be hardpressed to find elsewhere.
Mined Music, AKA Michael Newell, is a Munch-based producer and DJ who started his career as a hip hop and soul producer before making the switch to electronica in 2012. Rise Again is just one of the recent testaments to his talent in reflecting human emotion in instrumental progressions and compassionate lyricism. Mined Music’s aural maturity, professionalism and nuance are sure to see him go far, wherever he decides to take his sound next.
Rise Again is now available to stream and download on all major platforms via this link.
Indie artist KAIS has moved from strength to strength throughout their accoladed career, after quite literally putting their birthplace of Jordan on the map, they’ve started to garner plenty of International hype for their provocatively intuitive approach to production.
With every note placed to sting and draw emotion, their single “Take Me Home”, serves as the perfect introduction to the artist’s tenderly resolving sound.
With hints of Post Punk lingering in the progressive Indie Rock Ballad, there’s a chilling atmospheric air to Take Me Home which collides with the soft, reassuring vocals which use repetition of ‘take me home’ to quiescently emphasise the need to feel familiar ground beneath their feet.
If you’re not remotely teary by the outro, that has more to do with the state of your own soul rather than the talent of this truly exceptional artist who we’ll definitely be keeping on our radar to keep up to date with their progressively powerful aural prowess.
