Dance, Dance To The Sounds Of The 80s!

Silver Jack w-Hat 11 _3500.jpg

Adonis had me from the moment My Different Lover first note reached my ears. Right from the get go, it’s an upbeat, joyous throwback to the glory days of pop in the 1980s, and any fans of Michael Jackson should check it out right away. It’s all there and as satisfying as ever, from gated reverbs to warm analogue synths, Adonis’s musical knowledge and ability is clear and undeniable.

Listen to My Different Lover here: https://www.reverbnation.com/adonis83

My Different Lover focuses on the spiritual love between two people, rather than lust. Taking influence from classic Motown and soul, the exhilarating production is enlivened by Adonis’ bass playing and multi-layered keyboards and vocals.

Adonis is not only a songwriter though and his experience with music is clear when listening to his work. Over the years he has worked as a co-writer, a producer and an arranger and it is now that all this has come together to create something that is truly special.

 

 

Neethusha Finds Her Way

Neethusha is a versatile artist/singer-songwriter, who can sing anything from ballads to rock music, singing what she likes singing:

“I write sweet, happy songs when I am happy, sad songs when I am sad, and if I want to make you dance I will compose an EDM track”

This diverse and versatile attitude is what has lead to her new single ‘Why Did I Lose You’.

Why Did I Lose you can be heard here:

The beautifully romantic and sad ballad displays her influence from acts such as Shania Twain and Celine Dion. The song is dedicated to all those who have lost someone, “Sometimes life brings you the most wonderful people into your life, and just when your heart has grown immensly fond of them, rips them away from you. The only option we have, is to struggle, accept the pain and move on.” The emotional message behind the song can be clearly seen through the lyrics and heard by the expressive emotion in her voice.

Neethushas’s Indian upbringing and heritage could have got in her way, but her determination, drive and ‘voice in her head’, telling her not to back down, kept her going and got her to where she is today. And we couldn’t be happier.

Modiwo’s Guide to Music, Life and Beyond

Confounding expectations, Modiwo have emerged from the shadows of the Carpathian Mountains to become one of the country’s breakout musical success stories, whilst also giving their time to support charity projects around the world. Initially forming in order to provide entertainment for local orphanages and retirement projects, demand for the band’s music grew to such a scale that they agreed to become a band in their own right.

With their diverse backgrounds from Romania, Ukraine, Moldova and Hungary, their completely unique and captivating dream-like pop sound is a clear example of the band working together in harmony to create a blissfully uplifting track that fills the listener with positivity and warmth.

The video to Never Give Up can be watched here:

After taking over their home countries with their music, they have also started getting involved with the charity Fruit Fusion, which offers audiences attending gigs to pay with fruit instead of money, which then gets donated to local orphanages, in conjunction with The Bureau of Children’s’ Rights Protection. An average show can deliver up to 700kg of fruit to those most deserving. Modiwo carry this living ethos through to their own lifestyles and into their music, using their music as a form of relaxation therapy. Their positive and uplifting vibes can be clearly felt through their new track.

Angus & Julia Stone and their SNOW in the middle of summer.

This is not a drill! Snow alert! And yes, I am aware that we are just coming into August, it’s still summer but it’s true – it’s time for some SNOW. But don’t worry, there is no actual cold substance involved in this! It’s a name of a brand new single performed by Australian siblings  – Angus & Julia Stone.

Angus and Julia, born and raised on Sydney’s Northern Beaches, grew up around musical talent, their parents, who taught them music at home, used to have their own folk band.

 Both siblings play instruments and both are amazing song writers, they combined their incredible talents in  2006.Their success came quickly because of the magic of their music. The duo became famous worldwide, and many publishing companies and agencies showed interest in the brother-sister indie folk group.
So far, they’ve released three studio albums and won several ARIA Awards, including Album Of The Year.
Now, after a long break, they are coming back with a fresh album, also called Snow. The forthcoming album will be out later this year, on the 15th of September.
The leading single of the album is such a dreamy track but to be honest, it doesn’t have a lot to do with the actual snow apart from one line “ Blanket on my back, I’m cold, I’m cold again. Smile in the snow, tryna find something to say”. Well that… and if you fancy being out in the snow while you are listening to it, but I don’t think this can happen anytime soon!
The song seems to be about a relationship, or what is left of it. The ending is coming and the girl is wondering why the person won’t stay.
The duo’s harmony and the technique of delivering are superb, and their voices absolutely exquisite!
“Snow” makes you feel calm and you can almost imagine yourself facing the sun, wind in your hair and the slight curve of your smile…. Do yourself a favour and listen to this lovely song!

Let me know in the comment section if you’ve heard about this Aussie duo before, and how you like their song! Also, would you like to see a review of their album once it’s out? Share your thoughts!
Until next time! x

‘Ontology (Form and Content)’ by The Maladaptive Solution

The Maladaptive Solution are a band like no other. With didactic aims and teaching at the heart of the music they write, they are looking to ‘brainwash’ listeners with their new spiritually influences single, ‘Ontology (Form and Content)’.

Composing of a number of contributors including Brad Beard, Jimmy Haber, Kylie Whitney, Michael Giblin and Michael Carpenter, the group are influenced by a wide range of genres from rock to pop, of all decades, and this is what makes their style so hard to pin down. They take elements from all of this music, picking the best parts that will convey their powerful messages.

The superbly-crafted track was amazingly written in just one session, yet it was recorded over a number of years displaying the attention to detail and meticulousness of the band to gain absolute perfection within their music.

‘Ontology (Form and Content)’ is the kind of track that really taps into your emotions, no matter what music you usually listen to, and other listeners have even reported crying, strong emotions of happiness and even feelings of support. Evidently, The Maladaptive Solution have got their musical recipe right if they are provoking such strong emotions from their work and the song can be interpreted in whichever way the listener chooses.

‘Ontology (Form and Content)’ is out now but it’s much more than just a song,  it’s an educational piece of art that doubles as a pleasure for the ears.

‘Runaw’y’ By Pimlican

Pimlican is a unique artist who, by collaborating with a number of other talented musicians, is able to touch on a wide range of genres including R&B, dance and pop. His latest release ‘Runaw’y’ employs a powerful blend of all three, creating a catchy track that’ll be stuck in your head for days! If you’re wondering, the name ‘Pimlican’ comes from spending many nights in Pimlico, London, waiting for appointments with members of the music industry.

Pimlican is particularly adept at mixing infectious hooks with colourful instrumentation that sets his music apart from the crowd. These strong songwriting skills have earned him airplay on Radio 6 with Tom Robinson, as well as BBC Introducing and BBC Radio Leeds.

The whole idea behind Pimlican’s collective is to deliver engaging live performances and so anyone can get involved with the group, as long as they have something to offer and add to the music.

After releasing single ‘B’ck 4 More/P’lya’ in late May, Pimlican are set to release the addictive dance pop track ‘Runaw’y’, using rap to compliment the strong vocals.
