The Start: Italian singer Luca calmly brushes off his demons to find that right path on ‘Yet/Still’

Luca Nesciobelli aka Luca, is a deeply thoughtful The Netherlands-born, Germany-raised, Italian-bred indie RnB singer-songwriter. He has a clear picture of what he wants to portray to the world and prefers to let his music do the talking on his behalf.

He‘s here on a mission. This mission is also not something to be spoken about greatly, he would much rather just take you by the hand and embark on a journey with you and anyone who will join him. Step on the ship, it‘s gonna be a long and great ride.” – Luca

You feel his dreamy-cool vocals simmer through like a smokey chimney, his kind mind is ready and just needs that final push to do whatever he wishes.

With some smartly edged raps too, this is so good to listen to, as you will want a second listen.

Yet/Still‘ from the soulfully joyful Italian indie RnB singer Luca, is his reflection on the struggle of aiming for the stars up above – but yet standing still for now at the same time – as he carefully works out how to achieve his greatest desires, You feel like he knows where the slippery key is, and just needs to search a bit more so that he may be free where it matters most. His beating heart awaits this moment of pulsating excitement, when he reaches that destination. This is just the beginning.

Hold On: Bungalow know they need to mend that weak spot which won’t heal on ‘Voodoo’

After the whirlwind success of their previous single called ‘Make It Right‘, Bungalow just do that on their new smoothly-lit release that urges summer to come a bit quicker, so that the bleak winter days of lost love may be instantly forgotten with ‘Voodoo‘.

Bungalow is an Amsterdam-based alt-electronic duo, who smartly bind together fragments of love stories that was so strong, but is harder to fix than first thought. They make that reflective music which sparks vividly in your curious mind as you try and be stronger inside your fragile heart.

Voodoo is about not being able to fully let go of someone after a breakup, with that person still being very much part of many aspects of your life, including very mundane and everyday stuff. It’s almost like you need to detox from being so used to getting their love, approval and support. The song circles around the irony of wanting their support and comfort while you’re dealing with the sadness letting them go which is of course a big contradiction in itself.” – Bungalow

Taken from the upcoming six track EP named ‘Rockets‘, that is set to drop from outer space on May 14th, ‘Voodoo‘ from The Netherlands-based Bungalow, flies high above your consciousness with a mind-warp of sounds that has you listening so intently. This is the message of trying to forget about that one which you love as you can’t be together — but just can’t seem to —  no matter how hard you try.
