Intuitively spiritual rhythm meets sensual folk in DORA GOLA’s latest single, Dance with Danger

If any track is going to tempt the weary and wary out of their comfort zones after sanity diminishing lockdowns, it is the artfully fierce electronic folk-pop earworm, Dance with Danger, from the spiritually magnetic singer-songwriter, DORA GOLA.

With the intuitiveness of the rhythm, you scarcely need her bio to tell you that she’s a dancer. Her connection to music is enviably strong, but at least she’s had the grace to share her natural gift with the world through emboldening hits that tease your rhythmic pulses as much as they stir the soul.

Following the release of Dance with Danger, the Poland-born, West Ireland-based artist will continue to make her discography a rediscovery of ancestral roots, mystery and sensuality. We can’t wait to hear what follows. She shines luminously bright in a sea of ego-driven artists.

Dance with Danger will hit the airwaves on June 17th. Stream it here.

Laura Elizabeth Hughes – Pandemonium: Atmospherically Raw Neo-Classic Folk

With her latest release “Pandemonium”, Irish Folk singer-songwriter Laura Elizabeth Hughes orchestrated a tenderly pensive soundscape which will soothe your soul while simultaneously sending piercing aural daggers through your skin.

The soft vocals resoundingly fall into the atmosphere of the stripped-back single which utilises gentle piano melodies to complement Laura Elizabeth Hughes’s equally as ethereal vocals. From start to finish, you’re gifted with soft evocatively-charged alchemy.

I’d assume that anyone with the ability to listen to Pandemonium without feeling any discernible visceral emotion was categorically dead inside. It captures the chaos of our dystopic times while serving as a delicate reminder that we can still thrive within it.

Pandemonium is simply stunning. You wouldn’t find a more resonant single from an up and coming artist if you turned on the radio today.

Pandemonium is available to stream via Spotify.

You can keep up to date with the artist’s latest releases via Facebook.
