Get Ready for LGND Potential’s Latest Single “Lied to Ourselves”

“Lied to Ourselves” is the upcoming single from Pop Trap artist LGND Potential. Even though the track is steeped in melancholy, there’s still a tangibly sweet upbeat vibe behind the beats, making Lied to Ourselves a distinctive aural offering of uplifting catharsis with a resounding urban edge.

The mix behind Lied to Ourselves may be low key and ambient, but the production ensured enough emotive atmospherics were captured within the soundscape to allow the track to resonate as raw and expressive. LGND Potential may have a fair few singles already under his belt, yet, it’s clear to that the up and coming Pop Trap artist’s work that it’s only going to get better.

You’ll have to wait a little longer to hear LGND Potential’s latest single Lied to Ourselves but in the meantime you can head over to Spotify to check out his previously released singles and hear a sneak preview via Facebook.

Woodsen – Silhouette: The Melodic Pop Trap Ballad You Need on Your Playlists

Finally, a Hip Hop-influenced Pop artist who doesn’t need to depend on an excessive amount of reverb on his vocals. Woodsen has proven with his debut track that no amount of digital mastering can substitute raw vocal power. To say that the up and coming London, UK-based recording artist’s talent-driven sound is refreshing almost feels like an understatement. The harmony, range and strength in his vocals captivate you before the first verse to his latest single “Silhouette” runs through.

The melodic piano outro will ensure that Silhouette isn’t a single you’ll forget in a hurry. Yet, leading up to that, you’re treated to a perfectly polished multi-layer Trap beat which accompanies the piano to provide one of the freshest yet simultaneously sonorous mix. On that, you’ve got the weight of the all too resonant lyrics to contend with. Woodsen may have just restored my faith in the contemporary Urban Indie Pop Genre.

You can check out Woodsen’s single Silhouette for yourselves by heading over to SoundCloud now.
