Synth Wiz Wavewulf releases explosive new album ‘Space Art and Angels’

Released January 22nd, ‘Space Art and Angels‘ is the latest release from Synth Wizard Wavewulf. Sounding somewhere between realms of Jean Michel Jarre and Kraftwerk, Wavewulf’s innovative music is a refreshing sound in today’s overly saturated industry. Following in the footsteps of his previous album ‘Green Decay’, there seems to be no stopping this talented artist, and we’re not complaining.

Nicholas Long, the mind behind Wavewulf, has a huge passion for synths and that radiates throughout the release. A mystical journey through time travel, the cosmos, outer space and dimensions behind our own, any track off the album could make for a perfect soundtrack to an episode of The Twilight Zone or Black Mirror.

Exploring human conditions and the soul as well as political, environmental and philosophical themes, Wavewulf’s new album question humanity and what it really is to be a human. An iconic release that will go down in Wavewulf’s history, ‘Space Art and Angels’ is out now, and deserves your attention.

Thai-Chilean singer-songwriter Araya releases powerful debut album ‘Atlas’

Brooklyn based, Thai-Chilean singer songwriter Araya has released the exceptional debut album ‘Atlas‘. Covering themes from inclusivity and identity, the the LP features leading track ‘Color Palette’, which has over 340,000 Spotify Streams already. Gaining support from blogs and magazines across the web, ‘Atlas’ is a 14-track album which drives listeners through a world of musical introspection.

Speaking about his journey, Araya quotes, “I think my music is mainly inspired by curiosity to forever learn and further investigate certain parts of myself that have led me to a deeper understanding of my place here. I think music has provided me a space to dissect my thoughts and experiences in an organic way that is lasting. The drafts of both my perspective and choices come to represent me and my journey.”

“Atlas” weaves it’s audience through an alternative pop cum hip-hop soundscape, ready to grab your attention and never let it go. Speaking on the actual album, Araya added:

“Atlas is my personal map/guide to self-discovery; each major event, revelation and freedom has led to
furthering ever changing versions of both myself and my art. As the project neared completion, I had felt like a weathered superhero amongst my own set of avenger accomplices; I had just felt so comfortable, confident and able…

It wasn’t until I stepped out of the way of my own self; put my worries and anxieties aside to nurture my dreams that I felt able to feel an honest safety in myself and my people. Finding this sort of “Eden” right under my nose in my own strengths and special qualities is the first major thing I hope to pass on to my fellow humans floating through this universe. It’s all inside of us and we’ve always been enough, that’s how me and my art feels existing right now.”

Innovative pop artist Waterflower releases ambitious album ‘Balta Gaisma’

Latvia based singer-songwriter and producer Waterflower (Sabine Moore) is one of those artists that makes music without boundaries. Thinking completely outside of the box and creating individual music, the newly released album ‘Balta Gaisma’ is her most original work to date. Known for her captivating soundscapes and use of flowers and plants to create musical tones, the new album is expressive and free to do whatever it wants.

Speaking out for many in the LGBTQ+ movement, this empowering artist channels 80s inspired textures within the release. Some stand out moments on the album are ‘Find It!”, an experimental wonder that feels like the lovechild of Björk and FKA Twigs, ‘Chemtrail’, a jagged synth number with triggered rhythms, and ‘Palm Vs Palm’, a delicate, deep electronic track with enchanting vocals.

On the whole creation of Waterflower, the songstress stated:

“As a conceptual artist I use many symbols, but one of my favourite art techniques for performance is something like Brian Eno’s creative strategy – to create a mechanism, run it, and see what happens. I start my Waterflower shows by connecting nearby plants. I never know how they will behave before the show, or how they will react to my touch. Experiments with different plant species intrigue me greatly. I started working with plant synthesizers in 2015, when I saw the Kickstarter project for the Ototo synthesizer. 

I decided that this is what (..) “Waterflower” is all about, playing with plants as synthesizer keys. The technology used in Ototo also works with other materials, but plants are my choice. The other plant synthesizer I use is a MIDI Sprout. It measures the electromagnetic changes (impulses) in a plant and turns them into notes. Then it is up to me to find the most suitable instrument for these sound patterns. In each concert space, these plants create different melodies – I am very interested in that.”

Waterflower is an artist bathed in originality. A distinctive performer that always stays true to herself, the album explores the lightest and darkest parts of Sabine’s mind.

Cloudy Clouds unveils poetic 14-track album ‘Imprisoned in a Daydream’

Cloudy Clouds releases his debut album, ‘Imprisoned in a Daydream’. A collection of songs filled with nostalgia and an instant ‘classic’ feel to it’s soundscape, this is a statement for the UK’s ever-growing hip-hop scene. Claudio Elliston aka Cloudy Clouds draws inspiration from artists such as Eminem and Sha Stimuli, but always brings his own individuality to the table. An artist that’s not afraid to beat around the bush, Cloudy Clouds’ iconic aspects include British humour, emotive lyricism and personal songwriting. 

Imprisoned in a Daydream’ begins with a subtle American twang dialogue before venturing into the unknown. A hazy beginning that lingers in your mind for days, and as Claudio states.. ‘I don’t want to leave this dream ever.’ As for the next single, ‘Struggle Rappers Anthem’ isn’t for the faint hearted. Straight to the point about wanting more exposure with his distinctive songwriting, this grime-influenced number is bathed in hard-hitting rhythms. Bringing a strong flavour of the sound of rap in the noughties, ‘Calling Round’ blends elegant piano lines with creative vocals

Hear It’ is a collaboration straight from the heart. Featuring rapper Aïda, the lyrics are sharp and fuelled with hook-lines. While the instrumentation is mellow and easy-listening, the chaotic vocals on top are innovative.

Wavy’ is a thought-provoking, relatable number, while ‘Freewriting’ features an iconic piano line that nudges early Eminem vibes. ‘Dirty Secrets’ then enters with enchanting vocals, and turns into an experimental hip-hop wonder. 

An album that thinks outside the box, most of the release still pays ode to Cloudy Clouds’ influences. Though with ‘My Environment,’ Cloudy Clouds is simply in his natural habitat. Rhyming on command and ambitious piano lines, this number flows like water from a stream.

‘Pillow Talk’ feels like a subtle album feeler on the release. At just under 2 minutes long, the backing vocals are simply bewitching. ‘One Night’ is the most commercial track on the record, and features a collaboration straight from the heavens. Firahs and Lucci Rich add their own flavour to this established anthem. ‘Wrote You a Love Song’ is infused with mainstream pop sensibilities.

Arguably Cloudy Clouds’ most powerful track, ‘Your Future Daughter’ deals with truthful dialogue on the UK’s drug laws. Armed with British commentary and unique views, it’s the haunting backing vocals that you’ll be singing along to. ‘Maybe Tomorrow Then’ tells the story of feeling unmotivated, and always remembering that you can just get things done tomorrow.

Describing the album in one word, ‘Priceless’ rounds off a release with purity and charisma. Cloudy Clouds is an artist filled with character – and the thoughtful, carefully-constructed tunes on this record deserve to be listened to.
