The Black Fever – No Work

If you’re about to graduate or recently just have, this song will be handmade for you. With softly wailing guitars opening the track, the listener is then transformed delicately into the opening lyrics, “How long do you think…”. The song is not overshadowed by its powerful production, such as the crisp drum beats, but rather […]

Emily and Jake – St. Augustine

The majestically pleasant music of Emily and Jake was a dream to review. Elegant harmonising with folk-pop tones – a match made in heaven for a reviewer like me. Their vocals are homely and multi-dimension and their album “St. Augustine” is a catchy and delicate treat in the pop-fuelled music scene we live in today. […]

Royal Oak – White Lies

Getting back with an ex. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn’t; but it’s always a memorably absurd experience. “White Lies” is a track fluent in indie-pop, with a shivering opening musician scope encompassed by angular drum beats and flitting bass beats. The hook in the chorus of “whi-hite-lies” is genius, alongside the personable lyrics “do […]

Titus Calderbank- Mistakes

There is no opening instrumental for “Mistakes” by Titus Calderbank, the listener is simply thrown into the poignant, haunting track. “Hold me closer, dear” and calls of “Darling” help to create an intimate and sentimental tone to a loud, driven song based around forgiveness and letting go of bitterness. The hooks are brilliant, the dynamics […]

Almost Owen – One in a Million

lmost Owen is “somewhere between John Mayer and Drake. Who knows what that means…” Hopefully an answer along the lines of talented, non-cliché with velvet vocals would be appreciated! In his song about retreating to a hideaway with a lover, the drum beats almost echo a heartbeat and enhance the intimate nature of the song, […]

Olive B – Playmate

Emotional, empowering and non-emasculated by over-production; Playmate is a heartfelt and memorable piece of art. “You could be my soul mate” and “I could do you right even in the wrong way” help set the tone of vulnerability. The indie pop/ R&B beats alongside the slightly sarcastic yet intimate lyrics help to ensure the hooks […]

Violet Crime – Heard You Like The Rolling Stones

Breezy, smooth instrumentation and dual harmonisation welcome the listener into Chicago natives Violet Crimes’ “Heard You Like The Rolling Stones.” The cognizant love track evokes nostalgic vibes of easygoing American summer tunes of the 1990s, with its chill surf rock-influenced riffs and calming vocal inflections throughout.    The flirtatious, ethereal tone in both singers’ voices […]

Bridesmen – Overwhelm

“Oh, I’m not fighting this anymore / It never did me no good.” Despite the tenderness of Bridesmen’s latest track, it packs a staggering punch. Laced with synth-infused keyboard notes and soft, atmospheric electronic harmonies, Los Angeles-based musician Bridesmen—the moniker for the talented Kenton Chen—unfurls a powerful and emotionally-charged narrative.  He confronts social and cultural […]
