Lilo is so stunning on self-aware ‘Running in the Rain’

UK singer-songwriter Lilo is so stunning on ‘Running in the Rain‘ and sings with growing confidence and is always elegant.

With a voice that is hauntingly beautiful, Lilo is one of those genuine souls that loves making and performing her music to hungry hearts. Her vocals are tremendous, never too much and she is one determined young lady. After learning how to play the piano at aged 4, guitar at 8, songwriting at 13, singing lessons started at 17. She clearly loves music and learning new things so that she can immerse herself into the peaceful indie-pop sounds.

This is a song all about learning to enjoy the present rather than wishing constantly for the future and reaching your end goal. This is such a true predicament and something most of us battle with each day. Living for the moment is the way to go instead of over-thinking everything.

Running in the Rain‘ from Lilo is a lovely indie-pop pure song full of lovely energy that grabs your attention. The Yorkshire-based music is a huge talented and the music is so great to listen to.

San Gabriel – Another One: Absorbingly Amorous Indie Synth Pop

There’s nothing quite like hearing the debut single from a professional artist who has finally decided to let their expression freely flow through their solo work. That very same blissful sensation washed over us after hitting play on San Gabriel’s stunning Dreampop single “Another One”.

The soulfully connectable, stylistically spellbinding release unravels through dreamy lush accordance as the imploringly soothing vocals add plenty of personality to the mix. If you could imagine what John Grant would sound like if you caught him in an amorous mood, you’ll get an idea of what San Gabriel has to offer.

I knew I was right to trust an artist wielding a Jazzmaster in their cover art. From said axe, San Gabriel carved the warm effervescent tones that the JM is infamous for. Yet, it is probably safe to say that the distinguishable JM sound has never found itself around such absorbing synth pop notes before.

You can check out San Gabriel’s single Another One for yourselves by heading over to Spotify.

Amelie Blake is a UK based singer-songwriter with a stunning voice that sweeps through your heart and cleans up the rubbish that is cluttering your blood flow. She has made her own unique sound that has clippings of pop, soul and alternative music. This is a singer you have to be a fan of.

Bones & Bukenya – SHE: Restoratively Oceanic Alt Indie Folk

Bones & Bukenya

Bones & Bukenya are set to drop their stunningly masterful Alt-Indie Folk Pop single “SHE” on September 25th.

Transfixingly hypnotic Hawaiian surf rhythms introduce the track and bring the catharsis, when you find yourself in the midst of the harmonically timeless production, you’ll also find that you’re consumed by the restoratively oceanic single which stands as a testament to Bones & Bukenya’s authenticity.

Even sweeter than the stylistically soulful vibes that they were able to orchestrate through pairing their dual vocals with the mellifluous instrumentals are the lyrics which pay ode to women who know their value and shine with the confidence they exude.

Despite the quiescent tranquil air to SHE, it’s an incredibly powerful record that you’ll definitely want to give repeat attention.

You can check out SHE via the artist’s official Facebook page from the date of release

‘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.

Alt Pop took a supersonic shift into the future with the release of Luan Seguim’s single “Terminator”

Chicago-based Alt Indie Pop artist Luan Seguim has crashed onto the airwaves with their unapologetically authentic track “Terminator” which still fizzes with commercial potential in spite of the arrestingly visceral distinction.

Remember when Imagine Dragons dropped Radioactive in 2012? Yeah, it’s as stylistic and fresh as that. With an eclectic array of influences behind their futuristically grooving sound, Luan Seguim was able to serve up a genre-defying hit which Indie, Rock, Dark Pop and Electronic Pop fans will all undoubtedly approve of.
