Camille Peruto – Row Ghost: Taylor Swift Meets Sonic Youth

Camille Peruto’s new album ‘From the Sea To The Sky’ is now available to download. So why has the sound caught our attention? The Pennsylvanian based artist is a little different from the acoustic singer songwriter vibes that you’re used to. The production behind the track is monumental. The stand out track on Camille’s debut album Row Ghost has all the sweet soul of hit pop acts but she knows better than to follow in their lead when it comes to instrumentals which are teaming with reverb and heavy guitar riffs over mid-tempo bass riddled beats.

Camille’s sound could almost be described as shoe gazer/indie, with the same melancholic flow of the guitar as bands such as My Bloody Valentine & Sonic Youth, but her voice is one of pure angelic poignance. The layers of her diverse variation of vocals echo over the track to convey the raw emotion behind the lyrics which paint a melancholic picture with upbeat styling.

There’s a delectably haunting element hidden within the sound of this track which makes it the ultimate hit for anyone that’s looking for a signature sound from an empowering female voice.

Danelle’s “Broken” Is A Risky Production, But The Payoff Is Worth It

Have you ever found it odd that so many songs about feeling damaged or distraught are put together in a way that seems to convey the opposite. Major keys and crystal-clear production doesn’t exactly scream trouble. Artists, particularly singers, tend to find juxtaposing contrasting emotions to be a way of creating something unique, but when a singer has a tone in mind and can also find the perfect backdrop to amplify that feeling, we get something more powerful. Broken by Danelle is a song that builds incredibly well using slightly off-kilter elements to its advantage.

From the opening, the slightly transduced vocals have a quality about them that’s hard to pin down. They seem somewhat lo-fi in how they’re recorded, but they’re much more ambitious in their performance than what a lo-fi artist would be comfortable with. Between humanly off-beat claps and progressively more layered vocals, we get to enjoy a frightening and dynamic mix that evolves over time into something much grander than the original parts led on. In this way, the key to the song is sticking to the theme without sacrificing quality. Broken is a risky production altogether, but the payoff is well worth it.
