New York Night Market is an indie-pop music duo first formed in 2018 by Mateo Vargas and Anya Irvin who are now based in sunny Northern California. The talented pair first met while attending music school in Los Angeles and very soon afterwards, their energies were forever synced together. Anya & Mateo spent the whole of 2019 writing songs and digging deep to find a fresh, unique sound as a newly formed band. Tired of the same old dull textbook songwriting, the two decided to leave music school and venture into the music world on their own. With a huge amount of original music they have joined up with Gonzalo Aloras to record their debut EP in 2020.
The start of 2020 marked the beginning of this project, as the three got together in studios in Argentina for the recording of their self-titled EP- New York Night Market. This is an exciting step for the new duo as they look to release lots of music and make their mark on the global music scene.
New York Night Market take us through a romantic pop journey of love that makes me feel warm inside. New love is on it’s way and 2020 will soon be forgotten. Taken as a lesson to help us learn more about ourselves, love is meant for two. Being alone is not what us humans crave at all.
‘Made for Two” is a lovely song that is a quality debut and I have a feeling we will hear much more from this incredible duo.
With the sexy lyrics of Californian born LoverboyBass to get you in the mood, ”Quality Time” is an R&B song to relax and chill with and will certainly keep the temperatures high this summer.
There is nothing complicated about this song as the vocals are pure and the message is clear. LoverboyBass is urging his fantasy woman to be with him and he declares his love for her in a confident manner.
With an incredible ability to keep his voice low in a seductive manner throughout, LoverboyBass strides through with absolute certainty and makes known that he is indeed the man for this occasion. He wants to spend ”Quality Time’‘ with his woman, in whichever way he can. The stetting is intimate and it feels like the lights are really low, the candles are lit, the wine is poured and the slow dance is about to begin. Germany based LoverboyBass has released a top of the line R&B lovers anthem to steam up any setting.

The Rumble Skulls, AKA songwriter & guitarist Michael Featherstone has just released his latest single Gentle, and it’s exactly what it says on the tin. Soft and persuasive yet equally ground breaking and dark as he works with his raw talents to create an ode to a lucky gentle soul. It’s a mixed bag of Rock, Soul and Pop and you can’t really argue with the results!
Gentle is a soulful mix of upbeat guitar over a wonderfully orchestrated composition, accompanied by Marcello’s pained angelic vocals. Yorkshire, based The Rumble Skulls have the talent to create a sound stronger than a Yorkshire Teabag. As the track progresses, The Rumble Skulls takes you on a journey of pure emotion accompanied by a cacophony of deftly played instrumentals to create a track you really can’t fault! Having said that, Gentle isn’t a typical track from The Rumble Skulls, their earlier works are infinitely darker which matches their whole Grunge Rock aesthetic.
The Rumble Skulls debut album is currently in the making, due for release in 2018, in the meantime check out the official music video to Gentle via YouTube using the link below:
Mwansa’s gift of gravelly vocals that hit you in the pit of the stomach accompanied with stark poetic lyrics that bring the soul of this track to life. It’s modern romantic vibes are everything that you’d expect from an indie singer song writer. There’s no ego behind the sound, just eloquent humbleness expressed through the deft creativity used to create these beautifully melodic indie electronic tracks. His music is pure synergy encapsulated, brought to life through his stunningly raw vocals and brought to life by the soft guitar riffs.
The beat follows a soft duration from start to finish with a seamless transition throughout the entire track, led by the harrowing tale that Mwansa illustrates through his heart wrenchingly evocative lyrics that make it impossible not to fall in love with the Perth based singer song writer as well as his music. Mwansa created The Greatest Love I’ve Ever Known under the impression that no one would ever listen to it, is there anything more beautiful than that?

New York City might be quite of a tough place to be a folk singer: skyscrapers, city lights and millions of people clashing every day into the subways, alleys and roads of the Big Apple.
Standing up in the middle of all of that armed with an acoustic guitar and a notebook full of earnest lyrics takes a special blend of courage which is often overlooked. On “Paint Me”, Katie Garringer shares her unique experience of moving to New York City. This stunning folk song highlights Katie’s beautiful voice and it feels like an impressionistic painting. If you close your eyes, you can really let Katie’s genuine words guide you through the many magical corners of this city, from the streets of Brooklyn to the bright lights of Midtown or a quiet residential neighborhood in the Upper West Side.
This song is a romantic ode to New York City and a stunning, honest portrait of an artist reaching out for something greater.
David Ryan is a singer and songwriter with a really unique approach.
His music can be considered intimate and emotional, yet there is a lot of energy that goes behind his approach and vision. David’s recent single, My Love, is a heartfelt song with romantic lyrics and edgy vibes, which truly showcases the artist’s driven attitude. Although David makes music that sounds familiar in a sense, he does not comply with the typical cliches of the genre, choosing instead to develop a unique tone and a very special vision.
The result? total focus on the music itself! On “My Love”, the vibes are just spot on. This track is a little gem with all the right feels in the right places. Down to the meticulously arranged melodies, I am particularly impressed by the attentive approach to production. This song is romantic, yet no trite. Energetic, yet not basic…just the perfect balance.
An argument can be made that music of all genres are different iterations and expressions of the human soul. It’s that word though, soul, which has truly been able to define a very specific type and level of understanding and vulnerability and power in honest expression. For DEVIN, it requires only the simplest elements. A piano performance, a snap-beat and a chance to let herself shine through is all that’s needed for a soulful performance. To capture something so beautiful and so simple is a tradition of R&B, but all the more reason to respect these styles. Bring You In is DEVIN’s invitation to stop your day, clear your mind and focus on only this gorgeous sonic message.
Despite the rudimentary nature of the mix, it’s not right to discount the music as lazy. While the spotlight remains on the smooth and caring vocal performance, the piano isn’t just dropping compressed loops like a lot of musicians who strive for minimalism. There’s heart in every stroke. The snaps don’t provide much rhythmic variety, but act as a grounding element coming from something more intimate than the traditional metronome or bass and snare combo. In some ways, this incredibly basic beat can be called more intentional and romantic than layered beats with a richer sense of motion. All things said and done, this song is beautiful and worth slowing down your daily momentum to appreciate.
