Cardiff’s Sarah Brown changes direction on breathless ‘Liability’

Pop-Soul singer-songwriter from Cardiff in Wales, Sarah Brown, is back with another self-aware track with lots of powerful vocals called ‘Liability‘.

You feel like you always do what you believe but some people try and bring you down. You are in the mood of going on your own journey and you feel its your time. Small-minded people try and knock you down but you are just going to dust off any doubt and do you think. I love this mentality and it feels like Sarah has the right vibe right now to succeed.

The Cardiff-based singer has such a sultry voice as she breathlessly shines here and hits some supremely high notes that impresses the speakers. ‘Liability‘ is a bouncy song that is her way of showing what she is made of. The future is so bright for the artist that can do so many different styles that shows her emergence on the UK music scene.

French Alps Tiger majestically claw into our souls with ‘Let Me Down’

Let Me Down‘ is the brand new track from the exciting indie-rock 3 piece band from South Wales, French Alps Tiger.

French Alps Tiger are Russ, Duffy, Jess and Durke. The band are named after the elusive Tiger found only in the French Alps of South Wales. They like writing music that reminds them of being young kids and playing shows that reminds you of this innocence too.

I love the raw vocals here that just seen to get better and better after each note. The drums are rhythmical and the guitar strings are played with much skill. This is a classic song from this fine young band.

Let Me Down‘ is a sad song really due to the lyrical content. This is about being let down and feeling that soreness inside. You feel like you didn’t really deserve and want to know what you did wrong.

French Alps Tiger are a top Welsh band that are making their way in this wild music industry and I really like ‘Let Me Down‘. I feel very reflective and love the sound of the band. This is an act to certainly support.

Mared – Over Again: Strikingly Refined Neo-Classic Pop

We were lucky enough to get a sneak peek of Welsh singer-songwriter Mared’s latest semi-orchestral single “Over Again”. It’s safe to say that the Neo-Classically inspired Pop score is one of the most refined yet striking singles which we’ve heard this year.

Mared’s poised yet passionate vocals resound over the light melodic flurries weaved by the piano-led choral instrumental arrangement. Repetition may have been the inspiration behind the track, but there was none to be found in the gently and seamlessly progressive soundscape. Prepare to be arrested by Mared’s narrative lyrics which allow you to share the fraught emotion which spills from being stuck in a toxic romantic cycle and unable to escape. I’m sure everyone can relate. Even if you can’t, if you have a shred of empathy in your body, prepare for it to be accordantly tugged.

You can check out Over Again for yourselves from June 19th on all major streaming platforms via this link.

A creative storyteller who takes you on a mellow journey that includes a love interest, is always welcome in this dark and unsure world. Blueyute is a young UK emcee/singer with a smooth flow and a bunch of trippy beats to keep our ears looped in the whole ride.

Blueyute’sSong 4” is all about just going on that journey with that special person in your life, keeping an eye out for each other while daydreaming about going to all those places you have always wanted to go and visit.

Music Student Blueyute has created a vivid trip of simple expectations to striking results with ‘‘Song 4’‘. His music is ambient chill, just enough to keep you alert but always relaxing enough to lay back on a beanbag, dreaming of travelling somewhere far away. The Welsh youngster from Cardiff is maturing before our eyes and it won’t be long until he strikes that match and the fumes are full of a success that he couldn’t imagine.

Johnny Chirnside releases single Welcome To My World

Welcome To My World by Johnny Chirnside

Artist Johnny Chimside has dropped his piece ‘Welcome To My World’, introducing you to his feel good Country hit.

Within the first few seconds, you’re instantly pulled in with this real lively upbeat melody that continues throughout, combining the pluck on the strings, adding in a slight riff on the electric guitar and the drumstick clashing against the cymbal. Having a rather loud and energetic instrumentation gives it its Country feeling but adding in the electrifying riffs every now and then to give it that bit of edginess.

As you listen to the uplifting spirits that Johnny incorporates through his music makes you feel good, the energy that he pours into his instrumentation and his voice is insane. He has a more gravelly tone to his voice, keeping his tone at a fairly low paced compared to the melody.

This one is sure to get you feeling more energetic, with its super catchy essence, you must check this one out.

Listen to Johnny Chirnside Welcome To My World by heading on over to bandcamp now.
