Alex Young has released his lovesick acoustic indie-rock ballad, Might Just Catch Your Eye.

Out into the Light by Alex Young

Singer-songwriter Alex Young is here to remind us that romance isn’t dead with his emotionally iron-wrought acoustic indie-rock ballad, Might Just Catch Your Eye.

The Barnsley-based solo artist’s affectionately ambient single captures lovesick agony while keeping the minimalist yet resounding instrumental melodies ring free of the disquiet conflict. If Glen Hansard leaves you floored with his contemporary spin on folk songwriting, you might want to sit down before hitting play on Might Just Catch Your Eye.

Might Just Catch Your Eye is now available to stream and purchase on Bandcamp along with Young’s debut album Out Into the Light.

Trying To Forget: South Yorkshire singer-songwriter Gerard Frain drops introspective debut release ‘Remember’

Taken briskly from his upcoming debut EP cleverly named ‘Roominate‘, Gerard Frain has us feeling in a rather reflective gaze into the mirror as you ‘Remember‘ being with someone so special, who you thought would be holding your hand forever.

Gerard Frain is a Leonard Cohen, George Harrison and Paul Simon-inspired indie-folk singer-songwriter from South Yorkshire in England. He fuses that memory-filled nostalgic energy which sweeps you outside into the fields full of nature, as you recall those past moments which you can’t easily forget.

Recorded entirely by himself in his bedroom he’ll have you emotionally grasped by the lyrics one second and tapping your toes the next.” ~ Gerard Frain

Sung with a comforting melody full of classic fondness to those who you want to remember, this is a wonderful song with such beauty attached. For a debut release, you have to admire this quality on a track that reminds you of those legendary music days, with the all-time icons he grew up listening to.

Remember‘ from the highly promising South Yorkshire indie-folk singer-songwriter Gerard Frain, is that feeling-I-regret single that has you in a rather sad trance, which is so hard to snap out of. Your mind is transfixed onto that moment which saw you drift away and you feel an empty heart resurface, as you wish things were so different.

No one wants to grow old and alone in this lonely world after all.

Same old bitter winds: Burying Giants shields himself from the thunderous thunderstorms on ‘Change Your Mind’

Burying Giants by Burying Giants

Taken off his debut excellent eight-track release, Burying Giants returns with the self-reflective gem asking to be left alone for a while, as he recovers from more undesirable heartbreak on ‘Change Your Mind‘.

Burying Giants is the stunning solo indie-folk project from the multi-talented Rotherham, South Yorkshire-born, London-based Will Pope. He soothingly meshes that thoughtful type of music together into your beating heart, that is influenced from many years of travelling around the world for work, whilst looking for that elusive deep meaningful love connection.

He purifies himself from the burning catharsis buried deep inside his bones through his touching music, the swirling windstorm is mightily abrupt and blustery within his veins, as he seeks out that true healing that is so desperately needed.

Dealing with a shocking breakup can take a while to replenish yourself from and you feel his pulsating pain, as he sings with that deep underground type of tone, as he does his best to think positive and look to the future.

With a magnificent voice, he brilliantly reaches hard-to-fathom notes that puts you into a deeply emotional trance, as you strap on your goggles and go underwater again to remember about those sad memories you would rather forget but need to deal with, so you can fully heal up and be stronger again. Love is waiting around the corner if you choose to walk there.

Change Your Mind‘ from the wonderful Burying Giants, is that journey to finding peace in yourself, as overthinking what could of transpired only leads to more gloom inside your soul, which needs to smile and feel alive again.
