Nothing to lose: The Call from Upstairs bring synth-pop wonder to ‘On My Way’

Bringing a soothing sonic soundscape that will have you reminiscing about you favorite bands back in the day, The Call from Upstairs ring into our ears with some fascinating inter-planetary sounds from yesteryear, on the brand new single called ‘On My Way‘.

Orange County-based indie-pop/rock/synth outfit The Call from Upstairs, make that intriguing 80’s sound and blend it into the new age with a masterful performance. They take us to another planet here and you this is a song that will have you looking outside your window a bit closer tonight.

Like an illuminating light and catchy pop daydreams, this is the story about having nothing to lose and following your desires to get out of this situation, as you miss them so much. They say that they need you but you don’t truly believe them, as something is being hidden away from you. You don’t have much to lose so are going to follow your heart anyway and give this a try- despite what your gut tells you.

With calming vocals, they manage to lift the mood and give us a throwback song that makes this one of the more exciting songs of 2021 for fans of this genre.

On My Way‘ from Anaheim, California indie pop/synth act The Call from Upstairs, is like that song you have heard before but isn’t. They fuse a melodic firework of electricity into a mysterious blend of sounds, that will cause currents in your household to spark through your wires. They are a truly unique group that blow the mind and make you feel calmer and somehow a bit paranoid too.

2020’s headache cure: Anna Luther is phenomenally pure on the mind-cleansing ‘Heavy’

22 year old Anna Luther is a soulful indie-pop artist and music coach who has an aura that is so real, her smile is sweet and genuine, plus she is an outrageously talented creative as heard vividly on her latest relevant single ‘Heavy‘.

Taking time to fully develop her own original style and adding in nostalgic synths, ambient sounds and speaking to our souls deep inside; this is a singer-songwriter/producer that takes much care with each second of her music delivery.

This is a sonic soundscape that I haven’t ever heard before and my pesky headache cleared during this wonderful creation. A few tears slipped down my cheeks as I listened closely, my tired mind felt like it was transported to safe place by an illuminating angel.

Things have been so heavy this year and life can feel like you are carrying a rucksack of cement bricks all the time. This is a deep soul who thinks like vary rare people do and puts a lot of pressure on herself to succeed. Her mind is a whirlwind of thoughts and ideas, as she searches for that happy place on a road that is full of detours and punctures that either make you stronger, or knock you down for good. She faces a challenge that so many of us battle with, as asking for help can be tough as you have been let down before. The feeling here is that she is manifesting her thoughts to make this a reality and this is the power of real music. It can heal all wounds, no matter how deep and traumatic.

Her vocals are so spectacular and beautiful, there is a peaceful ambiance everywhere and her music is always evolving. ‘Heavy’ from the incredible soul Anna Luther, is a mind-bending experience that will take you places you didn’t know existed.

Hear this wonderfully soulful single on Anna’s Spotify and see her adventures on IG & FB.
