Hummana shows stunning elegance on the culture-rich single CARGA (Burden)

With such a beautifully mood-transforming essence and meticulous care to keep a vital creative movement alive forever, Hummana is rather spellbinding in a superb song to close your eyes with as your mind is finally set free on CARGA (Burden).

Led by the brave Cristina Vieira, Hummana is a Berlin, Germany-based Madeira Island-born Portuguese indie music project who is on a mission to keep the incredible culture of a homeland awake no matter what.

Cristina grew up in the Island’s unique cultural landscape with influences from Portugal, Northern Africa and Northern Europe. She was immersed in the traditions of the island that, nowadays, are quickly disappearing.” ~ Cristina Vieira

Searching for an updated approach to popular poetry and the traditional Madeiran Songbook while never losing its real authenticity, Cristina Vieira and Hummana¬†shall have you wondering why music can’t be as pure as this all the time. Showing so much pride for being a part of a community that is so special, there is an ear-warming effort to appreciate for its fine artistry.

Vocally outstanding and with an ensemble of the highest quality musicians possible, this is a song that shall find you feeling so replenished.

The music of Madeira is simple and wise. It speaks of the pillars of life. It is work-music that is being played to the rhythm of the manual labour that forged the lives of the people of the island. It is also the music with which the Islanders have expressed love, grief and joy.” ~ Hummana

CARGA (Burden) from elegant Madeira Island-born singer-songwriter Hummana is one of the most illuminating songs of the year so far. With important cultural implications attached, this is an immense anthem that shows us all that if you are doing things for the right reason, it usually works out for the best. Great music heals after all.

Stuck In The Mud: Paranoia Critical opens up the toasty oven with the haunting ‘Devil’s Platter’

Returning with his new single after the recent six-track release named ‘Found Footage‘, Paranoia Critical has our anxious bodies wondering deeply about the contents of the ‘Devil’s Platter‘.

American one-man indie-rock band Paranoia Critical, is an Addison Chapman-created music project. He makes a highly thought provoking mixture of ominous music creations, that unleashes a highly sinister element of dark energy, to have your whole body shaking with anticipation.

The name ‚ÄúParanoia Critical‚ÄĚ comes from a term coined by Salvador Dal√≠, when he would induce himself into a hallucinogenic state of psychosis. This name represents the band well, as Chapman attempts to explore existential dread and dark subject matter through psychological lenses of music.” ~ Paranoia Critical

His knife-cutting vocals is a blood inducing affair, with a sharp blade cutting through the track to perfectly spine-chilling effect. The beat is highly menacing and utterly threatening to the core of your bones on each second here, as the petrol is added to the fire unwittingly, and the hungry demons are alive and well with devastating results.

Devil’s Platter‘ by the USA-based one-man indie-rock band Paranoia Critical, is a one-eye-always-opened track that will certainly scare many into the bottom of their couches, like a scary movie does. The vocals are striking and hard to hear at times, which only adds fuel to the temptation bonfire to turn up the voltage even more.

This is a spooky single that has your pulses racing off the tracks and into the dirt, as you look around with some deep breaths needed – to keep your soul calm again – after the horror-type movie soundtrack on display here.

Find Me Underground: The Quiet Invisible looks for the torturous closure needed on ‘Catacombs’

As he quietly sneaks into the side of your awakened speakers after keeping it on the DL for a while, The Quiet Invisible perks our ears up with his latest single that will put you into a different frame of mind that you have ever encountered on the spooky-like ‘Catacombs‘.

The Quiet Invisible is a Gabe Downey-lead Detroit, Michigan-based music project with a real spike that hairs into your world, like a quickening heartbeat that can’t seem to stop. He makes that mysterious music which has you feeling rather thoughtful, as you open up the layers to see what seeps deep within its dusty surface.

The Quiet Invisible’s music originates from many years of musical exploration and experimentation – as well as guitars, basses, keyboards, and drums.” – The Quiet Invisible

Catacombs¬†are man-made subterranean passageways for religious practice. Any chamber used as a burial place is a catacomb, although the word is most commonly associated with the¬†Roman Empire.” – Wikipedia

Catacombs‘ from the absorbing Detroit, Michigan-based act The Quiet Invisible, shows us a song that might not be for everyone. It is however rather remarkable and extremely unique. His mind is currently thinking about the mission to go below what most of us see, so that he may get that much-desired closure that he needs to move on. In some way or form we all do, as there are people or moments that we would like to have back. Even for a few fleeting seconds. Life goes rather quickly so each moment does indeed matter.

Stream this new track on Spotify and see his IG music channel for more visuals.
