London-based band Bastien open up the door to their debut release inside that ‘Empty House’

Bringing us a true story about how songwriter Seb has moved out from that darkly lit social anxiety ridden feeling, Bastien are in a confident mood to show us what it’s really like on their first single, ‘Empty House‘.

Bastien is a 4-piece London, UK-based indie rock band who makes that nostalgic sound to take you back into a better time.

Formed one week prior to the first national lockdown, Bastien have been through a lot for such a new band. They spent their first year writing remotely, swapping ideas over email as they worked out their common influences and inspirations.” ~ Bastien

Displaying impressive poise and giving us an inside look where others will keep locked until it’s too late, Bastien delve into a subject that is often misunderstood or swept under the carpet. The aura is mellow here and sends you into a thoughtful place, that will have you calling up that friend you haven’t heard from for a while.

Sometimes you don’t want to think about how terrifying life used to seem when things are going ok, but I felt it was important to take stock of how my life used to look–small and scary–and compare it to how it is now–wider and more positive.” ~ Bastien

Empty House‘ from London, UK-based indie rock band Bastien is such a sincere song that leads you into that psyche of not wanting to come to your home alone, but knowing that you need to venture outside. Feeling like time is just turning with no results, this is a song that will have you feeling rather contemplative as you wonder where the key is to break out of this never ending dream.

Sometimes you just need to express your feelings, so you can be free again, like a bird out of that cage.

Thank God In The Morning: UK rapper THE MiiRACLE YV gives genuine thanks on ‘Hopeful’

As he looks up to the beautiful blue sky above and shows his immense appreciation for still being alive, THE MiiRACLE YV shows us that he will always stay honest and never live the life that so many have unwisely created on ‘Hopeful‘.

MiiRACLE YV is a highly motivated and brand new UK-based indie rapper who has kept his exact location hidden for now.

There is much to like about such a talented rapper who truly knows that he isn’t a saint, but is a good soul nonetheless. He flows like a man who is ready to really make an impact – and to inspire the youth – to avoid those pressured potholes that can take you down forever if you stumble into them.

On a catchy beat that has been made with a real purpose – this is a tremendous experience to wake up so many sleepy ears – who need a dose of real truth to help them shine authentically again. There are other options than taking the easy route after all.

Hopeful‘ from the UK indie hip-hop artist MiiRACLE YV, shows us a creative artist on a mission to get to where he knows he needs to be. With so many temptation-filled streets calling his name – he knows that to look in the mirror without shame each time he brushes his teeth – keeping himself accountable for his actions is the smart way to live.

This is the type of track to play when you need to feel some extra inspiration again, to keep on going on your path until those gold-tinted treasures are shiny and rightly in your glowing hands.

That Late Night Cruise: Wheel drives through the temptation-filled streets on ‘Numeral’

Returning with a hypnotizing new single to show us into the quick-moving streets, Wheel turns the engine on to move us into a night-filled sky that has so much opportunity inside it on ‘Numeral‘.

Wheel is alias of the well-known Swedish electronic music producer and artist Ricard Magnusson. He makes a magnetic blend of ear-glowing sounds that washes away all those pesky self-doubts.

He has made music for adverts (Swedish supercar manufacturer Koenigsegg among others), done remix work for high-profile artists like Barry Adamson, and also produces his own material.” ~ Wheel

Gushing with quality like a tap which is overflowing with fresh water, this is a tremendously intriging track from a highly skilled producer. Featuring a fueled-up single that is sizzling with rubber spinning electricity, you feel like you are in a Fast and the Furious movie with Vin Diesel and ready for any adventure that awaits.

Numeral‘ from the classy Swedish music producer Wheel, is a midnight cruise single for when you are speeding into those temptation-packed streets – which can either bring you back in tune for where you need to go – or tempt you onto a path which you should rather avoid altogether. The beat is rather mysterious and you feel like you need to head outside, to remind yourself of what is truly out there if you look deeply enough for the answers.

Check out this new single on Spotify and see more via the IG music page.

Oklahoma Rap/Rock artist 3Mind Blight smashes through the speakers with ‘’Breaking Down’’

‘3Mind Blight’- also the frontman for Alt Rock band DeadEyeChokeHold- is back with his breakthrough single and makes a big point with this effort. With a heavy start, you know he means business here after a short break from the music game. 

Blending Rap, Metal and Rock, ‘3Mind Blight’ doesn’t fit into any specific box which is refreshing to see, as there are so many bands and solo acts that sound the same in this genre. With stomping beats, this is a powerful song that is surely destined for major attention.

Going full pace through barriers is a hard thing to do and I feel like ‘’Breaking Down’’ does that all the way and pulls it off with a massive jack-hammer to your face. The real genius in this track is when he slows things down and I wish this song had more of this build up. Nevertheless, this is a strong effort for the full 2 minutes, 26 seconds.

If you like RapCore then this one is definitely for you as long as your speakers are up to scratch. I would sound-proof the room for this and look out for more from this creative artist in 2020.
