Susie Jones – Emmeline: Hauntingly Sonorous Indie Acoustic Folk

https://susiejonesband.bandcamp.com/track/emmeline

Manchester Singer-Songwriter Susie Jones has stripped Indie Acoustic Folk right back to its roots with the quiescently powerful single “Emmeline”.

The instrumentals may be minimalistic, but that just leaves more room for the sonorous vocals to resonate within the soundscape.

Rather than constructing your average track following archetypal songwriting structures, Susie Jones utilises the power of improvisation to orchestrate a truly captivating aural experience.

Time may as well stand still while you are listening to Emmeline. It drips serenity whilst abstracting you from your own introspection, although your emotive responses will be well and truly present.

Emmeline is just one of the accordantly haunting singles which you’ll find on Susie Jones’ 2020 album “Not So Far Apart”. You can listen to it in full by heading over to Bandcamp now.

Fonzarelii is set to make their debut with the Indie Synth Pop single “Reflections”

Fonzarelii

There’s no shortage of Synth-Pop artists, yet, up and coming Manchester-based producer Fonzarelii has proven that when accordant ingenuity is at the heart of the mix, there’s always room for more synthy futuristic tones on the airwaves.

Fonzarelii is set to release their debut single “Reflections” featuring gently ensnaring vocals from Ronan Harding which find perfect synergy with the dreamy melodic electronic instrumentals.

Reflections isn’t just a polished mix, emotion seeps from each aural pore in the soundscape making it a transfixing listen from start to finish.

Evidently, Manchester has bred yet another exceptional artist. When sentiment and emotion resonate like they do in Reflections, it’s practically impossible to find a flaw in the track.

You’ll have to wait until April 6th, 2020 to check out Reflections which will be available to stream via all major streaming platforms including YouTube.
