Surion takes an outside perspective in their insightful piano pop ballad, ’Beautiful Life’

Italian singer-songwriter Surion has released their latest piano pop single, ‘Beautiful Life’, after allowing his imagination to explore what it feels like for parents as they watch their children grow, succeed and fail before their eyes.

There’s nothing like a ballad that reaches outside of personal introspection and seeks to find compassion and instil gratitude. Beautiful Life does exactly that while using the gentle flurries of neo-classic notes to set a resounding tone.

If you could imagine what it would sound like if Tim Minchin took himself seriously, you will know exactly what you can expect when hitting play on Beautiful Life.

Beautiful Life released on February 26th; you can check it out for yourselves via Soundcloud.

Molly Clare Soars High On New Single ‘Wings’

Classically-trained singer-songwriter Molly Clare here brings her stunning, soaring voice to new single ‘Wings’, a divine, heartfelt piano-led ballad of love. Already garnering multiple radio plays, ‘Wings’ is the follow-up to ‘The Sun After The Rain’, which notched up over 40,000 views in support of NHS charities.

‘Wings’ really is an absolutely beautiful creation, the piano carrying the melody whilst leaving just enough space for Clare’s magnificent vocal to really shine. It’s no surprise that it’s already seen Clare into the semi-final of the International Song-Writing Competition and the John Lennon Song-Writing Contest, and as one of five finalists in the ‘Snowdrop Song-Writing Conpetition’ in front of judge Glastonbury-supremo Michael Eavis. With soft-but-supremely-powerful vocals in the style of her inspirations Joni Mitchell and Dido, ‘Wings’ is the lead singles from Clare’s forthcoming EP ‘The Sun And The Stars’, released this month, and it’s a perfect introduction to the incredible talent that Clare has at her disposal.

Hear ‘Wings’ on Spotify, and follow Molly Clare now on Facebook and Instagram.
