With the looming idea of self-isolating and staying at home seemingly just around the corner, we feel that it is more important than ever for you to hear about all the new talent we discovered this week.
Here are 9 tracks that we hope will help you to keep inspired through the week ahead.
Cabu & Blush’ko » Take It All
We love how this track begins with an intimate and minimal introduction that allows the listener to focus on Blush’ko’s soulful and enchanting vocals, all before the groovy and steady beat, courtesy of Cabu, kicks in. This track has a real energy to it. But at the same time, it’s quite the chill-out tune as well.
Kazukii » Back to Life
The highly nocturnal atmosphere that this track creates from the very get-go, instantly made me think of the kind of thing The Weekend would create. The sad atmosphere really blesses this song with a surreal kind of beauty. We love how this track really takes its time to immerse the listener before the vocals begin almost halfway through the song.
Lemon Drink » Pull Your House Down
There is an almost retro-sounding quirk to this track, and it reminds us of something that could’ve easily been released in the late ’70s. We love the full and heavy bass-line that spans across this track, along with the atmospheric echoing of the guitar melodies.
Price Park & Jade Alice » Give Me Love
Price Park and Jade Alice give us this fantastic collaboration with ‘Give Me Love’. This song is definitely full of emotion and carries a vibrant and colourful atmosphere with the electronic elements in Price Park’s production. This feels like a very live-ready track and would go down as a real show stopper in any kind of festival set.
Rossa Murray & The Blowin’ Winds » Melancholy
The newest track from Rossa Murray & the blowin’ winds is one that beautifully progresses, from a refreshingly minimal sound to a full and triumphant melody. As well as this, ‘Melancholy’ carries a very warm ambience and the kind of bittersweet mood that does the title of this track justice.
Shylde & Joakim Berg » Stickly
Stylistically, we feel that this track is amongst the most memorable in that respect. The collaboration between Shylde and Joakim Berg offers listeners an unlikely blend of modern electronic pop, but with the kind of rhythm, one could expect from some kind of modern hip-hop track. In other words, the rhythm is very fluid and upbeat, but with the electronic melodies, this track still retains a lot of its atmosphere.
Simon Alexander » Home
A far grittier and epic-sounding track than most released this week, Simon Alexander’s ‘Home’ is enough to give almost any listener chills. This would be the kind of track that would sound perfect if used for some kind of movie trailer. However, it is insanely enjoyable and impactful just on its own. It is a truly awesome musical piece.
The White Album » Mystery
From the very moment we heard that luscious guitar melody at the very beginning of this track, we definitely felt that this track needed to be on here. We also really enjoy how there is a faint echoing in the vocals, as well as a majority of the instrumentation, and feel that this adds a kind of retro quality to the track as well. But most importantly, the melody is incredibly uplifting, and something that we feel is needed at this time.
Yes We See » Love Love
A cold, soulful, and highly atmospheric track; the chemistry that every element of this track has with one another really succeeds in making this track one to remember. We love the rhythm, especially that many of the instrumental elements contribute towards.
Emma Miller » Merry Go Round – Scott Colcombe Remix
This week is a very special week for Emma Miller. Not only that she joined our team and wrote her very first review, but as well on Wednesday she released a remixed version of her single Merry Go Round. Congrats Emma! So thrilled to have you on board!
