Cafe Ena is determined to love again with ”Make Room”

Getting into that mental space to love again can be a very difficult and traumatic time. Feeling love is a rejuvenating experience and one that we all need to have. On the other hand, you have been let down before so are understandably nervous to take that plunge again.

Austrian born singer-songwriter Cafe Ena has just released a dark indie blue song called ”Make Room” and takes us through her journey to her current place, so that she can find her deserved peace and happiness.

Verena Bachinger aka Cafe Ena, is currently based in stunning Lisbon in Portugal. She has traveled around the world and has incredible stories to tell us all. Her new EP, the aptly named, “Locked Spaces“, is set for release so it’s been a productive time in quarantine for the tremendously talented singer-songwriter.

”Make Room” is a self reflective & haunting memory from the fantastically honest Cafe Ena. She draws us into her bleak picture with dark and moody melodies, never letting us go. She is striving to love again and breakout of her locked up room and heart, flirting with the idea and we wonder if she succeeds or not.

seBENTA’s Nova Vaga Takes Us Back Into The Dark Places

seBENTA appear to be on a mission to put muscular, dark, grunge infused rock back on the map. On the strength of Nova Vaga they intend to do this by blending the cold, doom-laden edge of Danzig’s dystopian blues-metal and the emotive, sonic drama of Staind, built as much on an intangible weight as the power of the musical delivery itself. Post-grunge? Is that a thing? If it is it suits our purpose here for this band is great at capturing all of the power of the intent and delivery of the rawest of grunge bands and doing it with the simplest of lines and leaving behind the “I hate by mum because she made me tidy my room” brattish parochialism which was often at the heart of the scene.

The real charm comes from the fact that although it is the sound of four musicians playing at the top of the alt-rock game, they rarely give away all the goods at once, preferring instead to serve the song and wait for their rare, individual moment in the spotlight, teasing and taunting the listener. Any showboating is reduced to intricate motifs and clever sonic designs which spice the music rather than lime-lit ego massaging that rock is infamous for.
