Maya Killtron's new single, “Bad Decisions” is a review of some of her best romances and worst choices in the field of love. It’s honest but light, real but unapologetic, and always dancy. This new track was inspired by her influences but is something new and dynamic that can only register as authentic Maya Killtron."
Liam Kirby’s “Little of this Life” is warm like a blanket. The tenderness radiates through all aspects of the album, from the intimate guitar work to the earnest vocals. A poetic quality predominates over the pieces as they unfold with a sense of purpose. Cyclical rhythms give the songs a naturalistic air to them. By not overdoing the arrangements the way that the songs feels oftentimes is akin to being alone in a room with a dear friend. At times the songs feel reminiscent of Nick Drake’s “Pink Moon” phase.
The sweetness of “Romanticized” sets the tone for what follows. Liam Kirby’s unique comforting voice guides the song forward, singing with a familiarity. Most analogous to Nick Drake’s work is the loose work of “Deary” whose energy is absolutely infectious. With an autumnal air to it is the reflective work of “Never” whose deliberate pace feels perfect. Opting for a sense of wonder is the childlike retelling of “Dream Log”. Featuring a playful keyboard is the joyous experience of “A Secret Life” whose melody lingers in the mind long the song is over. Keyboards continue though in a more subdued way in the deep registers of “If you see wolves”. Hypnotic in nature is the album highlight, the regal arrangement of “Stork”. Much more low-key is the highly articulate work of “Lightly”. Bringing the album to a close is the mellowness of “Lazy Eye”.
The music, recordings and artwork are by Peter Laermans & Zowie Vangeel, 2 guys from Scherpenheuvel, Belgium. King Sigh is very 'do it yourself'. The album is completely instrumental, without giving in on the melodic-euphoric character of the songs. Unlike many instrumental music 'One Might Wonder' often has a spicy variation and compact dynamics. . In the past King Sigh won Puredemo on PureFM radio and was Cutting Edge Talent of the Week in Belgium.
“Cruel” is the follow up to DANI's debut single “Love U More”. The lyrics were not only intended for herself , but also for others who may have experienced the strange and disconnected feeling of being addicted. The feeling of wanting to make excuses for someone who you are aware, deep down, is influencing your life in a negative way. Every so often you will get this glimpse of beauty from them and you just want to feel and relive that moment again.
DANI grew up in a small town in Alberta, Canada and spent her youth studying various styles of dance and was classically trained in both voice and piano. Once she turned 18 and realized that Alberta could not elevate her music career, she made the move to Toronto and spent as much time as possible developing her sound.
In addition to her own music Stella Rio has been working on Canadian DJ's DVBBS latest Wicked Ways EP, which just came out. She's also been writing for the new Little Mix album Glory Days.
Don't Go Away is about meeting that special person and feeling that you’re connected on a deeper level and never wanting to let that feeling go. Most people can relate because deep down most people chase that kind of love.
A combination of retro aesthetics, enduring lyrics and alt-rock grit.
The best music happens when artists refuse to remain stuck in their own comfort zones and creative boxes. Whenever this happens, they are free to give full range to their vision, and they can really come up with something that’s groundbreaking and personable. This is certainly the case here with Tommy Red and his brand new EP release, “I Wanna Be Exploited.”
