Scarlett Siren and The Howlin’ Tramps refuses to let anyone have that power on ‘Fuck You’

Taken off the 4-track EP called ‘The Devil’s in the Details‘, Scarlett Siren and The Howlin’ Tramps shows the small-minded folks out there that they need to venture far away as their words are not welcome here on ‘Fuck You‘.

Scarlett Siren and The Howlin’ Tramps is a Portland, Oregon-based vaudevillian-leaning five-piece music collective that is led by the dynamically enigmatic vocalist/burlesque performer, Scarlet Siren.

This genre-defying troupe of musicians loves to push boundaries with their cabaret-style performances. By blending a wide palette of sonic textures including psychedelic rock, blues, and jazz, The Howlin’ Tramps have concocted a style uniquely their own dubbed Psychedelic Swing.” ~ Scarlett Siren and The Howlin’ Tramps

Bringing us that foot-tapping groove that has you in a nostalgic mood as you wonder why you let that person bring you down for too long, Scarlett Siren and The Howlin’ Tramps show us their quality here with a brooding mood that isn’t taking that nonsense from others ever again.

Fuck You‘ from Portland, Oregon-based Scarlett Siren and The Howlin’ Tramps is a stunning single that shows you where the strength comes from if you are feeling so down from being with someone who didn’t support you at all. With a deeply rooted vibe that takes you into that time when you wish you had – or did – show the middle finger to a past shadow who is now far in the distance. With a defiant tone, this is an anthem for anyone who needs to grit their teeth and get into the right mindset again.

Life is all about being around those who are going to elevate you, not bring you down.

The dynamic collective of emcees, High Frequency, have released their seminally sweet RnB pop track, Part Ways.

High Frequency’s latest single, ‘Part Ways’, is potentially the sweetest RnB pop breakup track to have ever hit the airwaves. Between the melodic sticky sweet indie instrumentals, the sentimental lyrics which run through the inner turmoil that transpired in spite of the affection and the velvety smooth vocals, you’d need to be dead from the soul down not to feel the weight in this frankly genius hit.

High Frequency is a music collective featuring five true-to-their-own-style emcees who respectively bring their hometown influence to the table, resulting in a mash of Memphis rap, NYC grooves, 90s hip hop flows, modern trap styles and modern gospel roots. We can’t wait to hear more infatuation-worthy tracks from this powerhouse of a collective.

Part Ways is due for official release on November 6th. You can check it out for yourselves on SoundCloud.

Close Your Eyes: London act BLEMS make it feel alright again on ‘Focused’

As the dazzling soundtrack has your body losing control swiftly with a punchy exterior that draws you in like a professional painter, BLEMS brings us back to life with a track that has your mind so ‘Focused‘.

BLEMS is an exceptional London-based music collective, who make that crisply created electronic music with spectacular vocals, which simmers in hot and doesn’t ever leave an undesirable burn mark.

This is the story that has you feeling like you are on a night out — things are joyful but you feel like you need to get out quick — before things get too blurry and you forget where you came from.

Her voice is like a door that is opening in the welcoming light after so much darkness, the alluring echo is so beautiful and you get shivers of happiness whilst the beat drops in, and puts a huge grin on your face due to its world class quality.

Focused‘ from London’s superb dance act BLEMS, shows us the way in the moment, as you might have doubts about where you are but know where you need to be.

This is a stunning song that is so full of breathtaking vocals and a catchy beat that makes you feel so good and full of delicious potions, that hits the spot just right.

Stream this terrific new single on Spotify and check out the IG for extra visuals.
