Smooth RnB

Spotlight Feature: Elysia has breezed in with her love proclaiming, jazz-infused alt RnB single, Cherry Moon.

Melbourne’s most mellifluous singer-songwriter and artist, Elysia, has released her soulful alt-RnB serenade, Cherry Moon, which melodically translates the conversation between two infatuated souls exploring the blossoming stages of a relationship.

Despite the intensity of the emotion, the jazzy minimalist soundscape leaves you the opposite of over faced; the breezy quiescence of the single compels you to lean into it deeply to absorb every ounce of the elysian soul that is served with almost matchless finesse.

Elysia’s zen vibes and commitment to raw, honest expression is a breath of fresh air in our dystopic times – and we certainly aren’t the only ones to think so. The up and coming artist’s debut single amassed over 2k streams overnight, and Cherry Moon, featuring the smooth rap bars from South Side Denny discernibly has what it takes to go viral. Producer and pianist, Pastels ensured that the opulent hit was never in danger of falling flat.

Cherry Moon is due for official release on November 11th. You can check it out for yourselves on SoundCloud.

Trak Doe serves up transcendently smooth grooves with “Guitar Smooth”

If it has been a while since a soundscape has left you rhythmically entranced, you’ll definitely want to delve into the transcendent textures offered by up and coming artist Trak Doe’s recently released single Guitar Smooth.

Guitar Smooth finds the perfect balance between ambience and vivaciousness. The vibrance of the notes charge up the energy while the tenderly meandering notes lead you to relaxation. With the crystal clear iridescence, it’s hard not to succumb to the serenity in the instrumental Latin RnB track.

Omari lays down the easy melodic grooves in her debut single “Gameboy”

Many RnB artists like to play it safe with their lyricism and end up saying what has been said a thousand times before. Refreshingly, Melbourne artist Omari poured plenty of bold sentiments on the airwaves with her debut single “Gameboy”.

The Indie RnB Pop single has an engaging narrative lyrical style through which Omari assassinates the character of the unworthy waster which inspired Gameboy. Hearing the realisation of Omari’s self-worth in the single which packs in sublimely melodic grooves becomes an empowering aural experience. I can only imagine what it felt like to write it.

Even though you’ll hear plenty of the roots of Soul and RnB within Gameboy, there’s no understating the fresh evocative appeal behind the production. Despite the RnB vibe, it’s safe to say fans of Kate Nash and Florence and the Machine will quickly become enamoured by Omari’s stunning beyond definition vocals.
