Living out of a suitcase can be lonely, exciting, and mysterious all at the same time.Jade The Moon's new song “Hotels” was partially inspired by Quentin Tarantino's 4 ROOMS and the band’s real world experiences with life on the road. In writing this new single the band hoped to capture the psyche of the traveling artist that welcomes the feeling of the unknown and undone.
There's a thrill in chasing archaic moments in foreign spaces. More often than not this is where we find our inspiration.
Hotels” is from their upcoming album 11:11 which is set for release early 2018. It’s a collection of tracks best described as musical photographs. A moment in time turned dance party, true story turned love song, a daydream turned erie alt-pop lullaby.
"We hope to take the audience on an emotional roller coaster, these new songs truly reflect our stories. Although very personal and coming from very different places, our collective experiences feel somewhat universal."
Ali Murray is an ethereal folk songwriter/musician from the cold isle of Lewis in the north of Scotland. He writes dark atmospheric folk music with lush sweeping dreamy soundscapes and Celtic-twinged instrumentation. His new album LAND OF EVERGONE strikes a balance that is intimate and soaring, peaceful and haunting, sad and quietly joyful, delicately reverberating with Murray's dreamy voice and guitar playing.
Orellana is a neo-classical/post-rock collective hailing from Bristol, UK. Their new album “52”, released in late December, brought in the new year with it’s explosive and intricate sound. The project’s music transcends genre definitions in order to focus on a broad, diverse concept that is more emotional than tangible. This particular release is full of rich and diverse arrangements, but it is also a powerful exercise in minimalism, one that showcases the strength of very few notes placed in the right spots. The simplicity of the arrangement is actually one of the strongest aspects of this entire release: there’s a palpable stillness created by the long, drone notes in the background, which almost makes you feel like the world is happening in slow motion. When the chords and notes change, it feels quite monumental due to the beautiful contrast between the stillness of the background textures and the expressive sound of the guitar-based melodies.
