Seaker sings with such elegance on the awe-inspiring new single ‘You’

Seaker sings with such elegance on the brilliantly-made and awe-inspiring new single ‘You‘.

After growing up in the North East of England in the UK, Kiran Hungin is a singer-songwriter with a mysterious feel to her. She doesn’t post much on Social Media and makes incredible music that is made so well. This is a proper singer, not worried about the glitz and glamour, she only wants to sing and inspire those around her.

“I try to make music that is epic and delicate at the same time. I love those spine-tingly moments when there’s an emotional twist in a song or a tiny whispered vocal moves into a huge layered block of sound. I think for a while I associated art with sadness and only took something seriously in an artistic sense if it was melancholic. That shows still in how I write, though I also feel very full of hope and wonder, so it’s not all doom and gloom.”

This is a glorious song, full of high notes and made with so much love. Seaker sings with such beauty which is often lost in this burnt world that needs a lot of tlc. ‘You‘ is a stunning effort from the UK singer who has a voice that puts you in a different place. I feel relaxed and the world seems a bit safe thanks to this terrific track.

Make Up Smile‘ from The Ruby Tears is one of those songs that makes it all worth it. The Liverpool & Manchester connection dribble up and score such a great goal with this new single.

This duo was born from the womb of the weird life that is Covid Lockdown. Right now, The Ruby Tears has been an entirely online collaboration between Manchester solo musician John Goodfellow and Liverpool guitarist-songwriter Jeff Skellon. Imagine when they can practice live together? The music is already incredible so what comes next could be truly ground-breaking.

Taken off the new EP ‘Fallen Star‘, ‘Make Up Smile’ is a lovely entry in the music world with indie-rock flows and that road trip kind of feel. This is that type of song you turn up loud of leave it, playing it again and again until you are feeling okay.

Stevie Leigh has the wonderful voice of a sparkling, soulful angel on her now single called ‘Turn The Lights Down Low‘.

Stevie was raised in busy London where she grew up listening to music of all genres. She began playing the piano and singing at a very young age and her passion grew along with her involvement in performing arts all the way through her academic life. After then falling out of love with music for a few years, she traveled the world and when back, found her spark again. She is now a full time musician and producer too which shows how talented this young lady is.

This track was written during lockdown when Stevie was struggling with her mental health. It’s written from her own point of view as she struggles to accept herself and she constantly tells herself she isn’t good enough.

You are definitely good enough Stevie, your style is so genuine and any person you choose to be with should with, should be so blessed and grateful to be with you.

Turn The Lights Down Low‘ is such an introspective song from a wonderful artist who is finding out who she is in this world. She is quite brilliant and I know Stevie Leigh will find that special soul in her life that shows her how she should be treated. Like a Queen.

UK singer Kane sings about being cheated on with debut single ‘Guilty’

UK singer Kane sings about being cheated on by the girl of his dreams on the debut track ‘Guilty‘.

Kane is a singer-songwriter from Leicester in England. He was enjoying himself in Australia and on the holiday of his dreams. Then of course, corona struck, and he had to go home. No worries however. This has lead to him making his debut song and this is a well-sung track that strikes deep inside the heart like a flaming shooter, the story is so real and the taste is bitter.

You are with someone that you care about so much. The love is real and you are happy. Then suddenly, something is different. You have a feeling that something is a bit off and you think that she might be seeing someone else. You ask about who she is chatting to on her phone and you get a vague answer. You know now that you were right. It’s not just some guy and she looks guilty. Things are now bleak and the love is over.

Guilty‘ from the new singer Kane is a fine debut effort. The lyrics are so well constructed and the energy matches what is going on. He got cheated on which is a horrible feeling. Luckily, he is a resistant young man who will learn from this and be stronger. This is a quality effort and we might be witnessing a new name to watch in the UK music scene.

Marnie Mags is cheeky and charming on her vibrant video for ‘Mouth to Mouth’

Marnie Mags had a lot of fun making this video and her enjoyment is clear for us to see on ‘Mouth to Mouth‘.

Marnie Mags is a supremely soulful country-pop singer-songwriter, from the South Coast of England. With soaring vocals, she writes heartbreakingly catchy songs about life, love, the universe, and lays them down effortlessly over driving, rhythmic guitar hooks. You will be moved, you will want to dance, you will be transported. 
She has a style to her and the vibe is so authentic. She seems down to earth and real which is a pleasure to see.

Since the release of her debut single ‘Strangers’ she has released a 2nd single called ‘Mouth to Mouth’ which has a more modern country feel to it, and compared to the earlier days of the Dixie chicks but with more of an edge.

Mouth to Mouth‘ from Marnie Mags is a lips-seducing single with a fab video that captures the UK artist perfectly. With a glorious voice and charm to spare, I can’t wait to see her play live.

Ettie sings with delicious vocals on ‘Pepsi’

Singer-songwriter Ettie is back with more fantastic music on ‘Pepsi‘.

Ettie is an up and coming singer-songwriter from London, who drinks a lot of wine and has a lot of feelings. She infuses classic pop-punk melodies with personal, storytelling narratives. Her unique sound coupled with her background in English Literature allows for an immersive sonic experience, using word play and allusion to bring her songs to life.

You hate the way they talk their way up and aren’t sure if they are right for you, you go with it however. After a while, reality strikes and you start to regret what is going on. The temptation starts to fade however and things need to move quickly otherwise you will go home.

Ettie’s influences are Paramore, Avril Lavigne, Pale Waves, 80s synth pop, Kim Wilde, Patti Smith, L Devine. She has played at many London venues, supporting acts like Calvin Rodgers. This new song was self-written and produced by Charles Westropp in his studio. The song is highly influenced by 80s synth-pop to bring a classic delivery to a classic story.

Pepsi‘ is Ettie’s pop fantasy. She turns towards commercial from her classic pop-punk roots to establish herself as a true alt-pop artist. The song is about not having a dazzling connection with someone, but deciding to go with it anyway; like when you ask for a Coke in a restaurant and they ask if pepsi is okay? It’s not exactly what you ordered but it’s a start.

This is a sweet song with such interesting lyrics from Ettie on her new song ‘Pepsi‘. The way she expresses herself is so fantastic and this is a true tale of nights out after a few drinks. I love her music and she is like no other artist. This is a good thing.
