Souli Roots to save the world!

You may remember Souli Roots from her brief stint on X factor back in 2013 or from her appearance at Wembley’s SSE Arena. How she has developed as an artist since then is something to behold.

‘World Peace Expression’ is the follow up after the success of her drum and bass inspired debut This is the place’ . It’s obvious from the very start of the track how much Souli Roots has developed as an artist, as she brings in tribal African drums layered with psychedelic instrumentation.  Her powerful vocals echo over the track as she calls for the next generation to ‘clean up this mess’.

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!
You can also find Angus & Julia here:
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

South-Londoner Alexander Wolfe is set to release his new single ‘Fixed For Today’ October 14th following 3 critically acclaimed albums ‘Morning Brings A Flood’, ‘Skeletons’ and ‘From The Shallows’. Could the single be a hint to a fourth album to be released in 2017?

With clear folk and americana influences the horn section adds a sense of confidence and uniqueness to Wolfe’s track. The simple but catchy tune sets Wolfe up perfectly for a 2017 album release.

Beyonce releases badass video to ‘Sorry’ from Lemonade

After high expectations and excitement for Beyonce’s innovative and empowering album Lemonade, all about the ups and downs of a relationship, focusing on the key factors of infidelity to forgiveness, the video for ‘Sorry’ has been released.

Beyonce perfectly embodies her Sasha Fierce persona, with her fiery lyrics focusing purely on putting “middle fingers up” and featuring the song in the chapter of apathy. This simply represents the strength that she has, showing her new found indifference to Jay-Z after his alleged affairs. The beauty that she captures in the footage builds on celebrating the power of women, by only having women feature in the video, and using the intimacy of her African roots, using images of ethnic tribal makeup and patterns. Actions of worship are present, elevating both herself and women overall, once more emphasising her origins and leaving viewers thirsty for Lemonade.

The punchy drum beat makes this song unapologetic and her cutting and knowing smile at 4:30 proves she is ready to say “boy, bye”.

Being filmed in black and white focuses on the simplicity of her decision and the courage it takes for one to make it through this experience. Beyonce herself said she wanted Serena Williams in the video as she felt the “personification of strength” she puts forward was perfect for this song.

With ‘Sorry’ being the first stand-alone video taken from her hour long visual album, it is clear Beyonce is able to show her fans how to successfully get given lemons and make lemonade.
