Never See Her Again: Silver Magpie wishes his true love would stay behind on ‘The Storm’

As he begins to flap his dusty wings so he can fly to where he deserves to be after sheltering away where it didn’t feel quite right before, Silver Magpie ponders deeply as to why his lover is sailing so far away and not into his arms instead on ‘The Storm’.

Silver Magpie is a Guadalajara, Mexico-born solo indie rock singer-songwriter. He is a creative soul who has hidden his feelings away for too long, as he now expresses himself through his music creations, which only seek to find his true path in this rather confusing world.

Mainly influenced by post-punk/alternative rock bands with some shoegaze/dreamy hints. I’ve always had trouble fitting in, always the weird/nerdish kid at the back of the class.” ~ Silver Magpie

You feel his underdog mentality the whole way through, as he wonders why his love doesn’t turn around and join him hand in hand in again. He is unsure about this new path they have chosen and senses that he should stay behind – even though there could be something exciting waiting for him – if he just took the chance and joined them on the current-filled sailboat.

It took some time to redefine my sound and learn new things to deliver better music. This song is dedicated to all of those who have drifted away (sailing away) from others during this pandemic.” ~ Silver Magpie

The Storm‘ from the motivated Guadalajara, Mexico-born indie artist Silver Magpie, is an emotion-filled journey about the wind-swept thoughts, that are flying dramatically into his reflective mind. He wishes it was calm and easy to work out, but for now his feelings are mixed, as he only thinks about why they left him behind.

Life can take you onto many differing paths. Ultimately, its up to you to work out which way you think the elusive treasure is hidden.

Is There Truth Hidden In Your Lies: Shrt_lyf wonders where the peace is on the emotional ‘Love is All We Got’

After having our minds in absolute awe with the highly creative gem ‘Pretty Eyes and Blue Levi’s‘ from November 2020, Shrt_lyf continues to amaze with his punchy honest new single about how consuming your mind with the wrong visuals, can make you a monster on ‘Love is All We Got‘.

The respect wasn’t there from the outside who just presumed that he was the insider, as he changed his spots when common sense failed him, and showed who he truly was.

This is a lesson to the world about how relations between the US and the immigrant community is so strained, as the treatment is often horrible, and many kids are sadly put into cages. You feel his emotion sweeping through, as he wishes that this wasn’t the case and common sense would prevail.

Love is All We Got‘ from the USA-based alt rock/pop artist Shrt_lyf, is a true story about how hate can really magnify and stay inside those who choose not to open their eyes.

If only there was true peace and understanding all over the world. Imagine what we would be able to achieve together as one team?

Helping her repair the broken heart: Wønder is terrific on new Reggaeton/Latino-Trap track ‘Mejor Sola’

Wønder brings us a wonderful Spanish-language single to immerse ourselves into on the new release called ‘Mejor Sola‘.

Translated to ‘Better Alone‘ in English, this is the relatable story about being there for a friend when she has her heart broken by another man. He threw her heart into the trash, as he was selfish and you were there to pick up the pieces. You are watching her party away her pain which is hard for you to bare, but you must help her, as you are a kind heart and don’t want to see her hurt anymore.

Gustavo Maravilla Cruz, aka Wønder, is a Mexican Latino-Trap and Reggaeton singer-songwriter, and music producer from West Pittsburgh in California, USA. He makes that smooth music that helps your heart heal, while also getting your body to move and groove just right. This is a man who has been doing what he loves since very young, as he was brought into music by his parents who have blessed him with this rare gift and feeling the sounds, all over his body.

His voice echos sweetly through the simmering speakers and you feel a calming energy while listening to him. He brings a caring sensation and the excellent beat is a pleasurable experience on the heartbroken soul inside.

Mejor Sola‘ from the marvelously talented USA/Mexican artist Wønder, is a sensational song that makes you a bit sad, feeling reflective and also has you thinking of those times that you were let down, and how you rose to fixing your heart again. This is a passionate song that hits the heights of your inner-most desires, and has you joining in on the song, singing at the top of your lungs while learning Spanish at the same time.

Perhaps being alone for now is okay if it means you won’t be hurt. Finding that special person that cares about you deep inside, is what we are all looking for after all.
