Piano Pop Rock

Brigton’s Sadie Nix reached the pinnacle of candourous conviction in her piano pop-rock hit, Oblivious

With the minor piano keys, stridently pensive vocal harmonies, and depth of vulnerable emotion in the lyricism in the latest single from Brighton-based aural originator, Sadie Nix orchestrated a superlatively immersive alt-pop score with Oblivious.

With maturity, confidence and her ability to paint pain through melodies all transcending her years spent as an artist, Sadie Nix is a sensation that cuts through the superficiality of pop-rock while carrying all of the instant accessibility of it. What Kelly Clarkson was to 2004, Nix is to 2023.

Traversing the frustrations of invisibility and unaccountability through a lack of caring, Oblivious is one of the most powerful records we’ve heard this year. On the basis of it, I pity anyone that finds themselves on the wrong side of Nix’s conviction.

Oblivious hit the airwaves on February 3rd. Hear it on Spotify.

Singer-songwriter [ai] has released their archaically infectious serenade, ‘Love in the Time of Tuberculosis’.

The idea of archaic disease probably won’t leave your heart beating faster in any positive way but the latest subversively amorous single from [ai], ‘Love in the Time of Tuberculosis’, definitely can.

If you can imagine what would happen if Nick Cave’s macabre mind melded with Tim Minchin’s ability to lyrically laugh in the face of mortality and the not so romantic aspects of existence, you’ll get an idea of what is on offer in this uniquely captivating soundscape.

The baroquely theatrical pop track comes with Brian May-style guitar solos, arresting piano-led progressions and [ai]’s ability to pull poetic parallels from across the ages. The single is a poignant reminder that the world has always been full of catastrophe, and it didn’t just start going to pot in 2020, we’ve had 100 years of adversity, no matter how much we feel personally slighted in the present.

Filled To The Brim – Turn Back the Time: Soul-Driven Piano Pop Rock

NYC Piano Pop Rock artist Filled To The Brim injected euphoria onto the airwaves with their latest soul-driven single “Turn Back the Time” which was officially released in on May 1st 2020.

Fans of emotive Power Pop definitely won’t want to miss out on the up-tempo, danceable feat of piano-led Rock. With the harmonically poised Pop vocals and the energetic instrumentals, Turn Back the Time is the perfect addition to any feel-good Pop Rock playlists.

The lyrics may revolve around regret yet Turn Back the Time unfolds as an anthemically visceral optimistic track. It provides an olive branch of connection as it offers aural consolation that everyone feels remorse. But ultimately, it proves that regrets don’t always need to be synonymous with lament.

You can download and stream Filled To The Brim’s latest single Turn Back the Time for yourselves by heading over to Bandcamp.
