You invest your time and feelings in someone or something deeply and passionately for a long time only for it to abruptly end one random day. You spiral, stressing and fretting, trying to make sense of it, until that one morning when you wake up only to realize you feel nothing. A switch has been flipped, and in that moment you’ve made peace with it. Sudden Complacence is my bid to put that feeling in song.” ~ Rohit Sen describing the vision

Dan Zalles laments the monotony of modernity in his 80s-Esque alt-rock single, Email Hell

As digital domains dominate our existence, tracks such as Dan Zalles’ 80s rock-inspired single, Email Hell, feel almost inevitable. Between the atmospheric sonic nostalgia of the soaring guitar lines fed through effects that you’d expect to find on Will Sergeant’s (Echo and the Bunny Men) pedal board and the mundanity of modernity in lyrics, Email Hell is a feat of multi-era convergence that provides ample solace for anyone that doesn’t appreciate the technological advances which left human evolution in the dust.

Email Hell is is just one of the immersively sonorous singles found on the San Francisco Bay Area singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and film composer’s album, Emotionally. We highly recommend experiencing it in its entirety.

Email Hell is now available to stream on Spotify.

No Pain No Gain: Te’ shines through the lame rain on winners anthem ‘Been Through’

Taken off his debut twelve-track album called ‘Every Story Has a Struggle‘, the raw underground rapper Te’ shows us into his world of making ends meet and brushing off the negative naysayers with ‘Been Through‘.

Te’ is a supremely determined Vacaville, California-born, San Francisco Bay Area, California-based indie hip-hop artist with a true story to tell the world about the struggles of life.

Whether you grew up rich, middle class, or poor, Te’ will find a way to connect with you through his music.” ~ Te

His gritty flow is one to easily admire, the real life stories lead you into darkly lit places you only see in the movies. Te’ raps like a highly motivated man on a mission to win, with those memorable scars still visible as he vows never to let the past dig his grave for him. You feel like he has worked out what he needs to do now, as he grinds towards the money-filled path that will solve all his problems.

Been Through‘ from the San Francisco Bay Area rapper Te’, is the story about staying focused and not ever giving up no matter what. He grew up broke and things were harsh for a while, as he stayed on the lane and make it work in the end. After being locked up for a while – the light grew bright inside his eyes – as he vowed to be a better man and grow towards self-enlightenment, rather than getting sucked into the system that chains your valuable mind up.

The world is ready for you to succeed – if you turn your mindset around from the bad alleys – that just want to gluttonously take you away forever, to destroy the rest of your shining soul.
