The young Russian D-Anna, a singer-songwriter  who now made the move to Boston to study at at Berklee College of Music brings us a lovely single in ‘Not Today‘, and this young singer shows us her incredible vocal ability in her debut single.

Gillyman shares the tantalizing tale of being locked in his brain on ”Cake”

New artist Gillyman teases his tremendous talent on the mind-bending new track called ”Cake”.

Taken off the self-titled album, ”Cake” is such a mellow journey of self-discovery that warps the brain due to the dazzlingly electric beats and vivid vocals.

Gillyman roams free on this new track without any restrictions. There aren’t a lot of vocals on ”Cake” but that doesn’t matter. I’m fascinated as to why this song is called ”Cake” too. Hopefully when I see Gillyman perform live I’ll ask him.

This is 2 minutes 27 seconds of blissful music that enters your brain and never lets go. I love the intricate groovy beat that makes my head swivel and groove in delight.

The indie-pop song ”Cake” from Gillyman is one of the most chilled tracks you will hear so turn it up, tune out from social media and enjoy this mellow tune for any day of the week.

Sam Mudd smashes through the year with fantastic ”All of Your Friends”

Upcoming artist Sam Mudd from Iowa in the USA is back with a fab track called ”All Of Your Friends”. This is lofi-fi rock with an edm twist and it’s a rad track to send us a good vibe in 2020.

This is the follow up to the awesome debut called ”Where Are You” that certainly made a big impression last month with our team.

This song is all about partying and wanting to be close as friends again. The world has closed up and so has our human connection which is so sad to see. I love the punchy production on this one and it’s a terrific song full of weight and intriguing moments. Sam has a good voice and will certainly be a favorite when festivals are back on in 2021.

Casely urges us to make use of those real moments with ”Time Flies”

Time is always a precious moment and one that we need to make full use of. Being in that moment and really making it count, no matter how much you have of it. Casely has just put out a wonderful single that make you want to fly up and be with all those people you really care about.

This is a stunning song from R&B singer Casely as he takes us on a trip of passion and meaning. His voice is sharp and you want to listen to his every word. I love how peaceful this track is and the guitar riffs are calm and reassuring. His tale of love inside the song is sad but inspiring and we hear the hurt and stories about not letting pride get in the way- as this will eventually, hold us back. This is a fantastic song and one that all ages need to hear so that we can take a breath and look up above for guidance.

Spookybands releases latest single All the Birds Died V.1: A very powerful piece of music

Spookybands have released their latest piece ‘All the Birds Died V.1’ . It’s incredibly honest, meaningful and dark as he keeps it as real as it can be.

It incorporates many ranges of sound, it gives off this rather poignant feeling as he tells this powerful story through his lyrics, keeping it real and speaking the truth about the way he feels. What  makes this an interesting piece of music, is the way in which his vocal ranges can vary, sometimes they’re low and raspy and sometimes high-pitched and raucous as you hear the strain in the back of his throat, giving it this rough tone.

The instrumentation is kept pretty simple, but that’s what makes the words really illuminate the piece, everything aspect of this piece is to let the lyrics shine through and it certainly does that. The gentle riff and tap on the guitar softly pacing through the background.

Spookybands have this rather intriguing way when writing lyrics, in a way that his audience can hear each word and feel this connection through the words used.

Katrame – Mind At Stake: Holy fire and sticky desire!

Straight out of the gate, Katrame prove that they are rule breakers with their latest release “Mind At Stake”. It’s dangerous from the get go, with an intricate drum syncopation, electronic murky baselines, and a slow, grinding top line melody that is impossible to ignore. The ebb and flow of the track feels like auditory fermentation. They deliberately give nothing away before the right time and you are transported, then seeped in a  strange otherworldliness of their own clever design.

Like enjoying a clear sunny day and all that it has to offer and then walking through a door, only to be confronted with contrasting dark, dirty pleasures, ‘Mind At Stake’ transports you imperceptibly from pure almost holy reverence to sacrilege and sinful, sticky desire.

Michalis Papoulakos (vocals, beats, sytnths), Nasso Frontistis (bass, vocals), and Nikos Probonas (Guitar, synth, vocals) form the dynamic musical trio from Athens that is KATRAME and they are definitely a band to watch out for. They are well versed in suspense and intrigue and are able to place these into a musical context that is sure to move you.

Check Out This Say It (Remix) by Jericho Brillantes

Jericho Brilliants is a talented and charismatic artist with a unique style and a very energetic attitude.

Her music is a perfect combination between the uplifting vibes of pop and the cheerful vibes of electronic music, making for a truly kaleidoscopic personality.

Recently, Jericho released a brand new, exciting project titled “Say It”. This new release is actually a remixed version of the track, which features some enhanced beats and a driven wall of melodies that really set the bar higher. This release embodies the singer’s vision in a very comprehensive way, and the talented Tory Lanez, who collaborated on this remix, does a great job at bringing out the cool melodic elements in the song.

The production value of the release is a great combination of organic old school and contemporary clarity, going for a very balance combination of punch and rawness, which suits this particular genre very well.

Jericho is all about charismatic vocal performances and balanced instrumental tracks that really stand out, allowing the song to shine for its many different layers – from memorable melodies, to catchy hooks and deeper textures, this song has a very 3-dimensional vibe to it that really allows for an immersive listening experience.

Chris Wareham – Sting Me Down: Sound Stripped Bare

Chris Wareham has the ubiquitous sound of a bedroom artist. His latest track Sting Me Down illustrates the image of the pensive Acoustic Singer Song writer holed up in his North London residence.

The talented solo artist exposes his soul through his music, allowing his audience to hear him stripped naked by his lyrics that resonate through the soundwaves of his haunting voice, honest lyrics and deftly strummed guitar. It’s nice to hear an artist sticking to his humble acoustic roots and not striving to be yet another Ed Sheeran wannabe. He sings with playful humility that makes the minimalistic sound truly a pleasure to listen to. He lets his voice dominate the tracks, not hiding behind instrumentals or crass reverberation to bring his music to life. You can hear each and every lick of the string throughout the progression of the track.

Fans are already begging for an album from the talented musician, and I’ve joined the que behind his loyal following. He’s created waves in the underground musical Mecca for acoustic artists in London.
