Tyler Cohen – How I Feel: Confessionally Captivating Dark Americana Folk Pop

Tyler Cohen’s latest single ‘How I Feel’ is a confessional Americana Folk Pop masterpiece. Winding bluesy notes coalesce with cold, choppy, jarring chord progressions to create a deeply ardent instrumental arrangement which Tyler Cohen’s vocals eventually join.

If you could imagine Jack Johnson on his darkest day, you’d be close to the mark getting an idea of the alluring magnetism in Tyler Cohen’s melancholy. There’s a slight gothic tinge to the wistfully lovelorn track, but the soul which emanates from the vocals harmoniously cuts right through giving How I Feel a dreamy Southern Americana air.

You can check out Tyler Cohen’s single How I Feel via Spotify.

Pete invites us to find comfort in uncertainty with their latest single “I Don’t Know”

https://peteymacd.com/track/2347032/i-don-t-know-love-again

“Can I love again?” is one of the most soul-crushing questions we can ask ourselves. Up and coming Indie artist Pete used that agonising precariousness and conjecture to create their latest single “I Don’t Know (Love Again).

Some days leave us with more questions than answers. this sublimely mellifluous single is a soothing reminder that absence of certainty doesn’t always need to be synonymous with misery.

The grooving Indie Folk Pop track has Jack Johnson-vibes to offer, along with a smorgasbord of Pete’s own authentic style which brings plenty of accordantly melodic soul to the soundscape.

With the vibrantly warm tone of the track, it’s impossible to entertain any cynical absolutist thoughts about the future. If you’re in a relationship, put it on your playlists. Just in case.

You can listen to I Don’t Know yourselves here.

A&R Factory Present: Enok Amran

Enok Amrani is a Norwegian singer and songwriter from a middle-sized town called Porsgrunn. His music, which is driven by the lyrics, often moves in a melancholic landscape with elements from different styles like rock,soul and country.

Enok says “I grew up in a family where music was a central part. Both my parents played the guitar and sang together in our home, and occasionally in different churches. I started playin’ the guitar at the age of 12, and started singing a few years later. The music has always been a hobby with a few small gigs each year since 2011. During those years I started writing my own songs, and a desire to present them for an audience grew more and more until 2015, when I decided to see if I could go somewhere with my music”

In 2016 things starting to happen, Enko was given the opportunity to record some of his songs which has now landed in our demo pile!
