Taken briskly from his upcoming debut EP cleverly named ‘Roominate‘, Gerard Frain has us feeling in a rather reflective gaze into the mirror as you ‘Remember‘ being with someone so special, who you thought would be holding your hand forever.
Gerard Frain is a Leonard Cohen, George Harrison and Paul Simon-inspired indie-folk singer-songwriter from South Yorkshire in England. He fuses that memory-filled nostalgic energy which sweeps you outside into the fields full of nature, as you recall those past moments which you can’t easily forget.
”Recorded entirely by himself in his bedroom he’ll have you emotionally grasped by the lyrics one second and tapping your toes the next.” ~ Gerard Frain
Sung with a comforting melody full of classic fondness to those who you want to remember, this is a wonderful song with such beauty attached. For a debut release, you have to admire this quality on a track that reminds you of those legendary music days, with the all-time icons he grew up listening to.
‘Remember‘ from the highly promising South Yorkshire indie-folk singer-songwriter Gerard Frain, is that feeling-I-regret single that has you in a rather sad trance, which is so hard to snap out of. Your mind is transfixed onto that moment which saw you drift away and you feel an empty heart resurface, as you wish things were so different.
No one wants to grow old and alone in this lonely world after all.

His passion evident on this personal single about losing a friend recently to horrifying heroin addiction, the incredibly talented Buenos Diaz sends out a ‘Beautiful‘ tribute on this deep new single, which is taken off the new five-track EP called ‘Remember‘.
Buenos Diaz is a seven-piece team that is lead by self-taught Austin, Texas-based indie lofi-pop/blues singer-songwriter Nick Diaz and Grammy Award winning producer Beto Martinez, who somehow make that personal story type of music that fills your heart with sadness, love and thoughtfulness all at the same.
This is a fascinating mixture of wondrous sounds that perfectly encapsulates modern day society. The unimaginable story that you thought couldn’t happen but actually did. He sings with all the experience gained from being in various bands and genres all over the USA, his life as a travelling musician is a movie-like experience that needs to be shown on the big screen for all to learn.
‘Beautiful‘ from the Texas alt-pop wonder Buenos Diaz, is a special story about making sure that you look after your sobriety, as you want to live a better life and not go down that dark road. He sings with such passion and deep reasoning, each word and story meaning something special for us to embrace.
This is a truly remarkable single that will have your mind a trance for a while, as you gaze outside and wonder where you will end up in this crazy world.

Hidden behind sparse cover art, you’re introduced to the luxurious sound of M.I. by a lonely chord being struck, which then calmly gets weaved into a gorgeous, widescreen tapestry of rich and twinkling music. Call it modern soul, call it R&B, call it bursting at the seams with a sense of longing and regret. It’s a song that functions much like an old photograph would: to remind you of days long past, lives not lived and people who’ve long since disappeared. M.I.’s voice, her strongest asset, is on full display here, and it shines. And as soon as the song hits its dramatic finale, you can’t help but be swept up in it.
In short, M.I. makes tunes excellent for staring out a window to.
