Time Passing Me By: Dagani feels like he is losing his mind on the sensual ‘Sweet Talk’

As he wonders why they don’t want to trust him, Dagani feels like this game-filled romance is causing so much unnecessary pain to surface unexpectedly on the superb new single ‘Sweet Talk‘.

Dagani is a youthful Phoenix, Arizona-based indie Pop/Punk singer-songwriter. He writes excellently expressed lyrics that has your fluttering heart feeling so much warmer, as the love stories keep you gripped the whole way though.

While having a knack for music his whole life Dagani has just now started finding his own and who he is with his sound.” ~ Dagani

His fresh vocals heats up the airwaves as you remember back to when you were in love but it all broke down on the highway like a tired car. The tidy beat has you feeling rather enthralled the whole way through too – as you feel the drenched emotion rolling through the speakers from a soul that cares – who wants that deep soulful and meaningful love.

Sweet Talk‘ from the highly motivated Phoenix, Arizona-based indie Pop/Punk singer-songwriter Dagani, is that I-wish-things-could-be-simple-again as your love for her is so strong. The core trust bridge is on fire and while you are trying to calm the winds down, you are somehow unintentionally making things worse. This is that love story that keeps it real the whole way through, in a world that seems so much more complicated than before.

Just Remember Where You Started: Arizona’s Victims of the New Math bring us an inspiring lifeguard moment to float with on ‘You’re Swimming’

Taken off the latest four-track EP called ‘Heading to the Suburbs‘, Victims of the New Math urge us to turn our mindsets around from the negative to remind us that ‘You’re Swimming‘.

Victims of the New Math is a compellingly down to earth Phoenix, Arizona-based 70’s inspired lo-fi rock act lead by Thomas Young.

With several album and EP releases over the past 15 years, the band has incorporated other diverse influences ( Glam rock, New Wave, psychedelic rock, lo-fi rock, and indie rock) to create a unique sound that never quite fits prescribed genres or styles.” ~ Victims of the New Math

With an honest tone and compelling lyrics that have you suddenly feeling so introspective about those moments you wish you could take back, the message here is to look forward as you are floating anyway. The seas will always calm down eventually once the tide changes – as you move forward to brush off any sticky seaweed – that is holding you back from progressing your soul to better times ahead.

You’re Swimming‘ from Phoenix, Arizona-based 70’s inspired lo-fi rock band Victims of the New Math, shows us a story about being sad about something ending, but being self-aware enough to know that the bad times won’t last. With a glaze-filled ambiance that has you feeling like you are in a movie on this tremendous new single, this is something rather specially-made with that rare class of yesteryear.

“Rum” by Soulful Sara aka Sara Maatouk might be the most delicious music video of 2020

Phoenix singer-songwriter Soulful Sara aka Sara Maatouk has such a subtle voice that flies into your ears like a pleasant dream of winning a million dollars. She likes rum too. This is the story about why this is the best drink to consume into your thirsty throat without having a mega sore head the next day. Responsibly of course.

Rum” is the brand new single from this talented singer who dazzles here as she blends in smooth jazz with a bluesy ice style added for good measure. I feel relaxed and the visuals are fantastic. Sara Maatouk is in the local bar and tells us why she doesn’t enjoy other drinks. She is a woman of the people and always makes time for the locals. I feel like if Sara was a super famous star she would still be a local and head there to see friends and have a game of pool.

Shot stunningly by the ultra-talented Dana Bruhn, this is a wonderful music video that is enjoyable from start to finish. She captures Sara’s personality like a real professional that knows her quite well.

Stream the new official Rum song for the world to taste. Head to YouTube.

If you are more of a Spotifier then its okay, click here for more audio. Sara won’t mind.

Midxnite Ft. Hi Rez – The Point!: A smooth patch on a music marble

https://youtu.be/_zJ5Zhg0Dak

A fast-paced hip-hop song flow moulded with a rather mid-tempo beat is what splashes first in your ear when you listen to the intro of this song.

Followed up pretty fast in the second line was a long stretchy lyrical stealth of music flow that’s skilfully interwreathed from pitch to pitch on the same tempo within the actual baseline of the already heightened sound.

The featured artist (Hi Rez) didn’t forget to live up to expectation, with the whole morale high and tensed, he brought his A-game on this song by giving it his all towards his part of the song.

The perfect ingredient that’s needed were all in the right quantity here. For some reasons, the best part of the song was best saved for the last. Finishing the song with special lyrical rigmarole that’s actually golden is all that’s spectacular about this song.

Both rappers further marked up their own respective territories in this song by consciously laying bare all the aesthetic musical features that have distinguished them from the everyday uneventful acts. None of the rappers slacked in making know to their audience the reason why they’ve been quite outstanding over the year.

The song is actually very short, just a two minutes rap song but the punch line was uptight and 100% bespoke. This is an interesting rap/trap music that’s worth your time.
