Sam Wilder releases contemporary pop-infused number ‘Vanity’

A force to be reckoned with in the pop industry, Sam Wilder will certainly become a household name soon. Returning at the beginning of March with his latest anthem, ‘Vanity‘ specialises in contemporary poop with a mature nature to it’s arrangement. Influenced by the likes of Sam Smith, Tom Chaplin and Josh Groban – this artist deserves to have his name written in glistening lights.

Turning his personal experiences into relatable tracks that we can all familiarise with at some stage in our lives, ‘Vanity’ is certainly another strong contender in Sam’s ever-growing discography. Talking about the release, Sam explains, “Vanity’ is a song about feeling used and manipulated by the people who are supposed to lift you up and keep you safe.

One of the only positives to come out of the COVID-19 pandemic, ‘Vanity’ was written while in lockdown. Detailing that music is simply a form of escapism for Sam, ‘Vanity’ showcases that big things are in store for this artist in 2021 and beyond.

‘Electric Gold’ is the latest track from pop singer-songwriter Ruth Brosnan

An ode to the Superheroes of the COVID-19 Pandemic, ‘Electric Gold‘ is the latest single from Cork-based pop musician Ruth Brosnan.

Highly energetic and armed with a task to make listeners dance along, this up-tempo number is comprised of a mixture of influences from the 80s and electronic eras.

Hoping to bring an escapism to the current dark climate of the world, the track’s message is to provide hope to millions during these uncertain times. Something to stick on repeat to also filter away those winter blues, it’s a reassuring number that feels like a shoulder to cry on.

On the track, Ruth mentioned, “It’s about realizing that we are all our own heroes and will overcome these tough times and emerge together stronger. It is a shot of adrenaline to all of those obeying the rules so far to keep on going and a thank you/acknowledgement to frontline staff.”

“Electric Gold” attempts to uplift listeners, guiding them through what currently feels like a monotone life, through the lens of rose-tinted glasses. A friendly reminder that things will get easier, and to always look for that light at the end of the tunnel, Ruth Brosnan is a songwriter destined to leave you with a smile on your face.

Flight delay leads to Laura Mitchell’s soulful new number ‘Killing Time’

Written by composer John Young while waiting for a long-haul flight – that’s one way to kill some time!

New single ‘Killing Time‘ by soul singer Laura Mitchell is a melancholic number that channels refreshing soundscapes while holding onto a nostalgic presence. Like something you’d hear straight out of the Love Actually soundtrack, this familiar yet authentic piece of music will pull at your heartstrings.

‘Killing Time’ features pianist David Bennett and Laura Mitchell’s jazzy vocals. Mainly working in the wedding industry, Laura’s no stranger to the stage, and connected with ‘Killing Time’ instantly.

“I didn’t see this coming or work towards it. I am in a wedding band. At weddings, many people ask, ‘Do you perform you own stuff?’ or ‘You should go on X Factor’ – I didn’t have plans for that. I used to write music in my teens but worked off most of that angst and sadly stopped writing music when I started learning about it at Uni. I suffered from stage fright for a long time, but through the wedding band, the ability to put on the dress and heels and become a rock star – singing other people’s songs, I become someone else. It’s nice for me to become vulnerable again with a chance to show off the softer side of my vocals.”

Laura Mitchell

Killing Time is out now, and deserves a place on your playlist.

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.

The fragile and folk-like sounds of Rie Fu’s forthcoming album ‘Places’ and her intense relationship between music and surroundings

Set to release her debut album Places in March 2019, Rie Fu illustrates a unique philosophy whereby she creates a relationship between her music and surroundings. Radiating the fragile beauty and quintessential delicacy that Kate Bush and Laura Nyro encapsulate, Rie corresponds her music with her transition of location from Tokyo, Japan to the picturesque English countryside in Surrey.

Rie takes the abiding link between music and culture, whereby she enforces that culture differences go far deeper than language. Completing a masters degree in specialised translation at UCL, Rie emphasised in her thesis that when the Japanese attempt to replicate UK and other Western styles, the outcome is always with fault as the surroundings of the respective countries do not match.

https://soundcloud.com/rie-music/01-ripples/s-lpJfY?in=rie-music/sets/places-mastered-1/s-GwjkA

This reflection of culture and surroundings through music is exemplified perfectly in Rie’s transition of music style, from the densely textured electronica she played whilst living in the hustle and bustle of Tokyo, to the more folk, pastoral current material that she has produced in the English countryside. The forthcoming album Places is built from a spine of Rie’s lead vocals, acoustic guitar and delicate piano, with classical, jazzy undertones contributed by subtle electric guitar touches and Jo Quail’s cello. Taken from the album, Ripples gives us a taster of what is yet to come in her March debut album release.

Is Olisha Naiker the new Dua Lipa?

It’s not every day you get an unsigned pro sounding pop star… and an unsigned pro sounding pop star from Africa, that’s even better.

Meet Olisha Naiker (who’s Taylor Swift? this is Olisha Naiker). Her new single Starangers is one hell of a catchy tune. The fragility of her voice really captures her emotion in this song despite the strong up tempo beat of the track, it feels honest and real.
