Australia’s Cannon blast in with lead single ‘Enemy’ from forthcoming debut album

Melbourne, Australia is the home of the exciting outfit Cannon. They blast in the dusty music venue with lead single ‘Enemy‘ from their forthcoming debut album. This is that Ozzie rock that we all needed to quench that thirst for rocking music.

Recorded and mixed by Fabian Hunter, mastered by Nao Anzai and with artwork by Mary Streepy, this is a lively indie rock single with a band that is so right together, this is a high-paced journey that will take your breath away. This is that jam a long band to sway your whole body to and just dance.

This is the kind of local band you go and watch live. New in name but the years of experience shows through here. The sharp vocals cut through the speakers with the catchy rhythm that is of guitar riff in abundance. The lights are on real bright here, this is a song that is perfect for 2020. We are all looking for the enemy instead of the opposite. The world is backwards and the world needs music to inspire our confused hearts.

‘Enemy, Enemy, who’s your Enemy?’ rings through and Cannon are an act to watch closely. This new band have that extra bit of quality is so rare.

Alex Lleo is on top form with brilliant ‘Easy Way’

Alex Lleo is back in a big way with his excellent new indie-pop release called ‘Easy Way’.

Alex Lleo is a singer-songwriter from Birmingham and he returns with such a gem of a song that will let us all think about what is around us.

Spending time in nature – in Worcestershire’s Lickey Hills where Alex lives and grew up, the awe-inspiring Scandinavian mountains, and surfing the various coastlines of the British Isles has shaped Alex’s creative outlook. You can hear his attraction to the natural world, its peace and its drama, in his music, which is exquisitely-paced, laid-back and rich in melody.

This is such a lovely song and I love Alex’s voice. The vocals are smooth and his stories can be related to. Not taking the easy way out is the answer and instead doing things with a glint in your eye, staying positive no matter what 2020 has brought you. This is a time for us to heal. Alex Lleo from Birmingham does precisely that on ‘Easy Way’.

Cardiff’s Sarah Brown changes direction on breathless ‘Liability’

Pop-Soul singer-songwriter from Cardiff in Wales, Sarah Brown, is back with another self-aware track with lots of powerful vocals called ‘Liability‘.

You feel like you always do what you believe but some people try and bring you down. You are in the mood of going on your own journey and you feel its your time. Small-minded people try and knock you down but you are just going to dust off any doubt and do you think. I love this mentality and it feels like Sarah has the right vibe right now to succeed.

The Cardiff-based singer has such a sultry voice as she breathlessly shines here and hits some supremely high notes that impresses the speakers. ‘Liability‘ is a bouncy song that is her way of showing what she is made of. The future is so bright for the artist that can do so many different styles that shows her emergence on the UK music scene.

Midnight Drive’s ‘Over It’ is the electro anthem of 2020

Midnight Drive are a new electronic act in the game and they return with their 3rd single called ‘Over It‘.

Nothing is going to save this relationship sadly. The love has gone and you are over it. You had amazing memories but the time to turn the page and close the book is now. You need to move on and be free again, finding happiness is this destructive world is key to your mental health.

There is lots of indie electro forces here and the beat is so jarring and thuds into your ears. I love the beat and the raspy vocals make this a winner. This a breakout anthem that is a pleasure to listen to.

Midnight Drive’sOver Itshines through the door like a bright light wanting to force itself in. There is a style and a panache here that is unlike most bands. This is an outfit that are making a name for themselves.

Ry sends us post-covid inspiration with real ”Talking To Myself”

Ry Lee is an artist-producer from Binghamton in the United States. He dances his way onto the floor with ”Talking To Myself”. This is an 80’s inspired journey from soul, funk back to electronica.

The mysterious producer and engineer from NY is here with a brand new song that spikes our interest in earth travelling waves. Ry has a style that is a truly intriguing edm song that fills our speakers and marshal’s a return to the dance floor. Soon. In the meantime we can play this loud and send it to many a friend.

Talking To Myself” is a fabulous release from Ry who is a fantastic young artist who is on the way to fitting heights with his smooth edm style. This is a well-done song that has been playing in my ears again and again. This artist has reached the end of the line with lockdown and is starting to get tired of being at home. He misses the conversations of real humans.
