Only Upwards: NYC’s Lou Quattro takes it up a notch with ‘Love Phases’

With a silky smooth delivery that breathes new life into a stagnated genre, Lou Quattro drips in clean with a fresh bounce on his latest new nine-track album called ‘Love Phases’.

New York City-based Lou Quattro is the type of self-motivated trap emcee/producer and engineer, that likes to do things right, as he flows in with this new release that has so much potential. He raps with that confident drama-free energy that is all about showing that he is ready for his time to shine, away from all the cloudy skies and small-minded talk, that can tire out even the most relaxed.

Particular highlights have to be the bangers ‘Never Going Back, ‘On Read‘ (ft. La’Shai) and ‘Strange Love‘. His stories of love lost, love gained, money made and getting stronger, reign above all, as he strides in with ice to spare and truth stories to lay bare.

Love Phases‘ from New York trap artist Lou Quattro, is the story of how love can change each day, as he finds his place in this wild world and searches for his true Queen, all while the jealous cash-grabbers look on in jealousy.

Looking deeper within: Mysterious indie-electronic artist Itsallzenhere fascinates with love-torn single ‘I Was So Blind’

Itsallzenhere is back with his love-torn story about a crush that seems to have gotten away on his single called ‘I Was So Blind‘.

Unintelligiblekai aka Itsallzenhere is a fascinating Greece-based underground indie-electronic musician who has made a song that forces you to look much deeper within than most music out there, due to a break-away style that is ever-evolving and original.

It seems as though this is an artist who is dealing with so much pain from being with someone that he truly adored. With a voice that breaks up on occasion and forces you to listen really intently, he is expressing his pain to what happened. He appears to still be dealing with it and is working out in his mind what transpired and to start the healing process.

When you are in love or lustful, it is so hard to make sense of things when they end. You tend to blame yourself and this only leads to a longer time to heal. Its easier said than done to move on, take it on the chin, learn from mistakes and turn the page but this is the only way to be happier again, faster.

With a unique music style, he is a pleasure to listen to and you feel that there is much potential here if he can market himself well, find a close community of fans that keeps on growing and shares his music to new friends. Or he might just want to make music for himself as a healing process and perhaps we will never know. That is the beauty of music, it is there to make us think, inspire and to calm our minds from the crazy world before us.

I Was So Blind‘ from Itsallzenhere is a fascinating journey of simmering sounds that is like a mystery we love to find out more about.

Isla Croll gives us a soulful lesson in love with ‘Irreplaceable’

15-year-old RnB singer-songwriter Isla Croll proves with her latest single ‘irreplaceable’ that maturity in sound and soul is in no way related to the number of decades you’ve been roaming around the planet.

With her tendency to embrace everything from Jazz to Hip Hop to Pop to Funk in her soundscapes, her resolving, emotional and honest tracks speak directly to the soul. Irreplaceable directly speaks to souls recently maimed by feelings of insecurity. Isn’t modern romance just incredible for that?

With a voice so imploring and an artistic intent so pure, she’s made it difficult for any other RnB artists to follow in her footsteps, thus making her sophomore single somewhat of a paradox. The majority of your consciousness may be drawn to her magnetically velvet vocals, but there’s a lot to be said for the intricate Indie Jazz-laden instrumentals which trickle, swell and soar in synergy with Isla Croll’s pitch-perfect harmonies.

You can check out Isla Croll’s inspiring new single for yourselves by heading over to Spotify.
