Addictive Kisses: Manchester’s radiant indie-pop artist Minerva Daisy wants to get out of feeling trapped on ‘Substitute’

On an vibrant beat that suits her voice perfectly, this is an excellent song that so many will relate to as we remember those times we loved the kisses so much – but ultimately they were tainted with poison – that seeped like evil fluid into our kind veins, to freeze us like a statue while we are still awake.

Snir Yamin: maybe your new favourite singer-songwriter with new single ‘Taking’

Snir Yamin might just be the best male singer-songwriter you’ve never heard of; his previous singles, ‘Down The Line’ and ‘Twenty Three’, both made it to number one on the iTunes Top 200 Alternative Tracks chart, but new single ‘Taking’ is simply stunning, a painfully wistful melancholic nostalgia to Yamin’s guitars and plaintive vocals.

It’s a great track, evocative and emotive, gentle yet powerful all at once, some intricate, melodic guitar picking underneath the poignancy. It’s reminiscent, a little, of The Calling, but also classic singer-songwriters like Elliot Smith and guitar-led artists like Snow Patrol and John Mayer, there’s also classic songwriting with elements of older influences such as the Stones, Dylan, or the Police in the mix too.

‘Taking’ is available on Spotify right now; check out Snir Yamin on Facebook and Instagram.
