Sukh pays ode to care workers in their empathy-invoking Alt Indie single “Nightingale”

Manchester-based Indie newcomer Sukh is due to drop their latest single “Nightingale” which pays a soulful ode to the care workers who have selflessly put their lives on the line during the pandemic.

If you didn’t have empathy for nurses before, you certainly will once you hear the semi-orchestral, slightly psychedelic feat of Indie. Sukh found inventive ways to allow you to imagine just what care workers endured and he was just as inventive with the piano-led soundscape. Lou Reed might not be around anymore to soothe our souls, but Sukh has proven with his latest release that he can offer the same level of resonant catharsis.

You can check out Nightingale for yourselves from the date of the official release on July 3rd via Soundcloud. In the meantime, you can check out Sukh’s other feats of mould-breaking Indie.

Santo Helenia – Drama Queen: Sweetly Psychedelic Indie

“Drama Queen” is the sweetly psychedelic Indie single from up and coming artist Santo Helenia. Rather than your average brash swaggering guitars, Santo Helenia has gone with a more concordant and intricately compelling direction with his sound by teasing in ethereal layers of alchemic chemistry.

How well the light tonal textures weave together in Drama Queen stand as a testament to the maturity of Santo Helenia’s song writing, instrumental and vocal talent. From Drama Queen you will be able to expect an eclectically mellifluous guitar-led instrumental arrangement which also incorporates mesmeric piano melodies to offer a fully rounded stickily sublime platform for Santo Helenia’s vocals.

Schribe – Found You: Lucidly Psychedelic Indie

“Found You” is the smoothly psychedelic Indie single from Schribe’s debut EP ‘theINBETWEEN’. With the lush layers of reverb, the melodies are as lucid as they are haunting. Whilst that should be a contradiction, it’s clear that Scribe has an experimentally pioneering approach to recreating the soundscapes we’ve all known to come and love from bands such as the Beatles by putting a progressive spin on the timeless sound.

Found You, like the other 5 tracks on the EP don’t come across as being written for commercial appeal. Instead, the expressionism which is found in the concordant harmonies of the track speaks volumes of Schribe’s creatively prodigal flair which deconstructs archetypal sound and creates dreamily fluid works of mesmeric appeal. With vocals as easy to listen to as breathing and the deep narrative introspection found in the lyrics to the music, it’s clear that Schribe’s sound doesn’t belong on the underground.
