Classy and Simply Superb New Song from Gravity Castle


Indie Pop Duo Gravity Castle

Gravity Castle – ‘Different Than You’

Classy and Simply Superb New Song from Gravity Castle

What begins with soothing guitar followed by the distinctive voice of Oli Kersey from the Duo, Gravity Castle gives this a feeling of peace and acceptance in an instance.

 

Gravity Castle are Oli Kersey and Gabriel Glenhill released their first single, ‘I’m Sorry’ in early 2019.

 

Their most recent track, ‘Different Than You’ sparked my attention in a way not many tracks do.

‘Different Than You’ is somewhat controlled freedom that’s smooth and relaxing while remaining current and pop based.

The more I thought about it while reviewing this song, the more I realize what a real feat it is to these guys to write and produce such a prominent track.

 

While music in general during Covid 19 has seen an increased pace in tempo in pop music, Gravity Castle have taken the complete opposite in direction.

 

What makes ‘Different Than You’ so enticing, is the build up from something very simple, evolving both musically and lyrically. Crisp clear production with an underlying pad adding warmth and flow followed by the moving beats that shuffles the track into a slow groove. The bass of the song perfectly balanced adding the vital extra layer of depth.

 

Lyrically, ‘Different Than You’ encourages strength through the storm people face alongside each of our differences.  “I was told that it’s better to stand up in a storm, Then I’ll, Rediscover my fire I’ve had since I was born, I want more” are words in which are relatable to everyone, but what makes this song lyrically brilliant is from where it comes from in the verses. Simple and clever words indeed to reach us all exploding into a chorus of hope; and don’t we all need that right now!

 

Gravity Castle explain – “We live in challenging times. Times that put all our weaknesses and mistakes on full display in a digital world. Despite such hardships and in the midst of this war of opinions and debate, we’ve become less connected and compassionate as a people. Our new single, Different Than You, speaks directly to this. Unconditional love towards our neighbor is how we move forward. Combatting the weight of discrimination with acts of fellowship, kindness and selflessness. We must become unified in the acts of respect, kindness, inclusion and thoughtfulness towards one another if we are to ever removing the negative actions and emotions that plague our world today. With that said, we humbly share… ‘Different Than You’”

A classy, delicate and simply superb track by Gravity Castle.

Ed Roman’s New Single “Tomorrow Is Today” Is His Finest Yet

“The Buddha was once supposed to have said, ‘the trouble is you think you have time,” says chart-topping Canadian musician, Ed Roman. He describes his latest single, “Tomorrow Is Today” (MTS Records) as “the reflection of ‘act now’ in the living moment. Carpe Diem. Seize The Day!”

 

On Friday, September 4th, 2020, the award-winning singer-songwriter does just that, releasing the follow up to his #1 iTunes South Africa single, “Stronger.”

“Tomorrow Is Today” is being hailed by critics as Roman’s finest hour: “Ed has made possibly one of his best singles, if not his best..’Tomorrow Is Today’ finds Ed reaching new heights, exploring new territory, and as a result, producing one of the year’s best rock-based singles.”Jamsphere

 

Produced by Michael Jack and Ed Roman, “Tomorrow Is Today” is from Ed’s forthcoming album, A Recipe For Perpetual Spring.

 

“We have come to rely too heavily on the system not only for our protection but our moral direction and social salvation,” says Ed. “What we don’t realize, is that we are the system…Each one of us, in our own individual beauty and jagged complexity. What I have come to understand, after 50 years of spinning around this star, is the things we create in our living environment every day are the most important of all. They are the things that promote mental and emotional stamina. They have tenure and longevity in your living experience.”

 

He continues, “The most important thing is we act every day on our thoughts and our feelings. Struggle and learn from the creative process of failure. Spend less of your time with your head in your hand, phone in your face, and look forward to the horizon where every day new opportunity lies in wait. Your opportunity is already here.. there’s no point in waiting for tomorrow.. The planet is gonna keep on spinning whether were here or not.”

New Single from OldSkool Rockers skinsNbones Forever On


Single Cover

New Single from OldSkool Rockers skinsNbones Forever On

skinsNbones is a collaboration of Aussie muso’s featuring the powerhouse voice of Jason Kafoa, forming in December 2019. From diverse backgrounds and experience but all with a love of rock music.

Together we’ve created a sound all of our own, based around thumping rhythms, in your face brutal guitar and soaring melodies, sung with one of rock’s most dynamic voices. Keeping it simple, all feel and no frills. By sicking to this formula we’ve produced new 6 ball Aussie classic rock anthems which appeal to all generations. Our songs have meaningful and thought provoking lyrics written about real life issues that extend to social issues and the questions these issues raise.

One reason our logo is a “?” is skinsNbones like to raise questions and/or issues to get people to think, to question, to use their discernment, even with what we’re saying. Increasing awareness and perception, being able to discern what is and is not, is vital these days.

We are not about self promotion but the promotion of the issues our songs raise.

Using skinsNbones oldSkool rock with nuSkool roll.

 

About Forever On: 

Two things. skinsNbones songs rarely have 1 storyline.

1.   skinsNbones feel strongly about reducing stigma associated to mental dis-ease, or what Bones the lyricist calls “mental difference” and asks: “What would the world be like without mental difference?” 

Einstein, Nikola Tesla, Isaac Newton, Beethoven, Van Gogh, Da Vinci, Michelangelo, we could go “Forever On”, all had mental dis-ease/difference. Without them thinking and seeing the world so differently where would we be? No E=mc^2! No understanding of electrical energy that we’re now only just using! and the art! Where would we be without such beauty?! Such inspiration! 

The world’s greatest minds had mental dis-ease/difference which is why they thought DIFFERENTLY, in ways others couldn’t even dream. The world would be very bland and backwards without mental dis-ease/difference. Plus, mental dis-ease/difference is linked to higher IQ and also helps develops a higher EQ, an ability to empathise & care. So, “What would the world be like without mental difference?” Without seeing “new views” from being “around the bend”? This song is an Ode to Mental Difference, to help change perception, to learn it has all-ways added beauty and greatness to the world, been a huge part of the progression of the world. Learning about, and embracing your difference, makes a difference.

2.   Keeping it short, the 2nd story is finding the inner light within Self, or from a higher Source, from tough experiences and using them to become more enlightened, a better person, fully accepting that mis-takes will be made, “wrongs”, that will be used to grow and not to put one’s Self down but help lift them up. Use “the rocks that tripped (you) up” as stepping stones for others. Use all ways to learn, grow and burn brighter and brighter in Spirit “Forever On”. skinsNbones promotes how beneficial Self growth is, especially from hard times. That becoming a better being, not a bitter being, is healthy for not just your Self but also the world around you.

Gutsy and Explosive Unforgettable New Music from Emme Lentino


New Music Release

Emme Lentino – ‘Some Other Girl’

Gutsy and Explosive Unforgettable New Music from Emme Lentino

Emme Lentino is one of the nicest people I’ve encountered. Born in USA and now residing in New Zealand, Emme has a long history in the music business and with each new music release, she just gets better and better; like a fine red wine. J

Her latest track due for release in October, shows real grit. An unforgettable explosive catchy upbeat love song about ‘Some Other Girl’ who ‘Had My Heart and You Threw It Away’ is a rather common crazy issue in relationships and while it seems from my review that perhaps it’s a depressing song; it’s not! By far.

“The song is about empowerment and not letting heartache stop you from thriving and also helping you to discover who you really are” say’s Emme.

Emme not only shows the grit and guts in her vocals but co-insides with a hard-hitting production that would get anyone fired up.

‘Some Other Girl’ is a fiery upbeat country-pop production recorded in London by Al Clay and lends itself to an array of possible versions; which for me, shows a great quality song in itself proving Emme’s song writing skills and capabilities of the highest calibre.

While the production of ‘Some Other Girl’ is great at it is, I would love to hear an acoustic version as well. Alongside perhaps a different approach to vocal performance in the verses with the voice super close to the mic with an almost angry sung/spoken attitude with less reverb. Don’t get me wrong, this production as a stand-alone is mind blowing, but when I can hear so much else in addition to what’s already there, I get excited.

Emme has also filmed a high-quality music video to co-inside with its release giving the visual element of the story line.

Whatever you do, don’t miss ‘Some Other Girl’ when it’s released on October 2nd on all major streaming platforms.

My Energy Certain to Raise The Roof with Edward Knocks


Icon The Great is Back For More with Tripper Remix

Single Cover

Boastful, insecure and sincere all at at the same time, ‘My Energy’ is the new single to come from new persona Edward KnocksLockdown forced Edward Knocks to put shallow and self serving projects on hold and instead gave him time to sit down with his favourite synthesisers, resulting in confident and bubbly ‘My Energy’. Describing an interview with LCD Soundsystem’s James Murphy on failure as a turning point for the creation of this song, Edward Knocks faces down his insecurities in this bold new release.

Edward Knocks is a new persona for the artist who was previously signed to a label under a different name. Since leaving his record deal due to creative inertia and the feeling of being pushed into the wrong creative direction, he has found himself to be bursting at the seams with new creative ideas and relishes the new creative control he exerts over his own projects. Inspired by David Bowie, Kanye West and Frank Ocean, Edward Knocks keeps his artistic integrity and authenticity central to his sound.

New Album: Michele Garruti Helps Us Find Beauty In The Darkest Places – Glitch

New Music

Throughout the history of Classical music, composers have expanded the limits of their art into their eras. While one era worships perfect counterpoint and makes sure to avoid harmonic dissonance, other eras see a devotion in using clustered chords, repetition of the melodies, and even silence or noise for contemporary artists. For our particular era, the modern one, one of the most interesting composers regarding the innovations he brings to the classical genre is Michele Garruti, the Italian composer who is now based in London. 

He has just released his latest oeuvre; 15 compositions taking the form of an album he titled Glitch. The title refers to something that would suffer a sudden malfunction or fault, and if we translate it to life or music, it is Michele Garruti’s way to bring imperfection into reality, and beauty where it should not be. 

Glitch is bathed in a fairy atmosphere by Garruti’s vision, which creates a music based on slow repetitions of short patterns, and gradual evolutions of the moments, scenery, events, or feeling he is sharing with the listener, never straining for effect, and with a striking purity of style. Glitch is a full-fledged work that marks the beginning of a new horizon for Michele Garruti, who will now be considered as a pioneering Neo-Classical composer turning into gold every note he envisions.

Daisy Spratt Releases Breathtaking Captivating and Emotional New Music


Icon The Great is Back For More with Tripper Remix

Indie Singer

 

We Can’t Stop Thinkin’ Bout Daisy Spratt’s New Single (Listen Here or below: https://ffm.to/daisysprattthinkinboutyou Watch Here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V2Rkcl2T-eY ) Coming soon.

Daisy Spratt released her 3rd studio single, and this one definitely pulls on our heart strings. Her 2019 release of “Think Again Boy” had attitude and grit, but “Thinkin’ Bout You” is all about emotive lyrics, and verges on a personal conversation with her listeners.

The 24-year-old, Melbourne, singer-songwriter has had a trying year, like all people, coming to terms with the new realities of COVID-19, and the personal strains it has brought on families.

The song was written with certain loved ones in mind, that have been battling depression and anxiety. Her music video contains many personal home-made videos of herself, and her family, from when she was a little girl, which only adds to the emotion of the track.

“I wanted to share a song that would really speak to people in this season. It has been a tough year, we have lost people, lost jobs, lost our sense of order and what was once our reality. People need to know that someone cares and is thinkin’ bout them. I hope people feel uplifted, and emotional, all at the same time, when they listen to it”, she says.

The independent artist has floated between country and pop over the years, but this new single verges on the edge of pop, and indie/alternative genres with a vocal to match and captivate the attention of all listeners.

If you love Matt Corby, Taylor Swift, Vance Joy, Gabrielle Aplin or Amy Shark, you’ll love this song. 

For the release, she has reached out to mental health organisations in Australia. Beyond Blue is kindly allowing Daisy to share the song on their public Facebook profile, to reach over 600,000 people.

New Pop Music to Empower the People from Ruth Brosnan

Ruth Brosnan – Toodle-OO

New Pop Music to Empower the People from Ruth Brosnan

Ruth Brosnan is certainly making a name for herself. Hailing from Cork in Ireland, Ruth’s debut single, Good Enough received thousands of streams on Spotify as well as sparking attention across radio and blog platforms around the world.

 

Her latest release, Toodle-oo shows her love for quirky upbeat pop and the need to help women throughout the messages of her lyrics in her songs. “I wrote the song to empower people” say’s Ruth. There’s certainly something in which resonates with people through “Toodle-oo”, as in under 24 hours the track gained over 65K views on Facebook alone.

 

The upbeat energetic pop dance song pulls me towards the liking of the hit song Flashdance from the 80’s, with deep base, synth lines and what sounds like a timpani incorporated within the pop beat; and who doesn’t like Flashdance; what a feeling!

 

The production is crisp and clean with a super catchy chorus and awesome bridge, while Ruth’s music video shows her fun personality with back up dancers amidst those classy Audi’s, (my favourite car)). The Music video takes me back to the days of how music videos used to be made, and by no means is that a negative, in fact, quite the contrary. It is revitalising to see the story, music and energy with a human perspective within the video. It’s not a music video that is over produced with effects which is un-relatable.

Perhaps this will encourage the younger generation to seek acceptance for talent as dancers and performers in music videos on a general scale. I really love that Ruth tells the story with simple visuals without having to guess what it’s all about.  

 

Toodle-oo is an attractive pop song which teens and the mid twenty age groups would easily relate to with lyrics of strength to stand up for themselves.

Lyrics such as “I ain’t playing games, take a look around” and “Sick of giving you the benefit of doubt”, are strong words which in turn will teach young people not to sink or dwell on issues they face, encouraging them to keep moving.

 

Of late I’m hearing a lot of 80’s and 90’s inspired tracks and sounds, and while I love these era’s as they send me back in time, it is really nice to hear the younger artists embrace these sounds and productions. I often remind myself that these young artists are perceiving these sounds as new and if they are embracing them for the new music coming out today, then artists and musicians must have done something right back then. So, from an old artist of the 90’s to one of 2020, Well done Ruth!

 

Very cool, easy to listen to classic pop dance track.

Each instrument is gradually plugged in throughout the 1 songs on the album, subtly adding layers that prove to be highly appealing with each listen being different. The songs perfectly captures the emotions and pain of Hipster Conspiracy’s struggle towards accepting her transgender identity, with mental issues, substance abuse and  depression being part of her daily life during those years. 

It feels like the album was so natural to create for Hipster Conspiracy, as it represents so well every aspect of her journey. Dysphoria captures the difficulty of being a transgender artist, even in 2020, and we cannot but support such a talent courageously sharing her story so that others don’t have to suffer the same pain in their lives. Be sure to keep an eye out for this Dark-Hip-Hop powerhouse’s next release.

Edward Knocks – My Energy

Lo-Fi Pop Makes My Energy Contagious and Exciting from Edward Knocks

Isn’t it a great feeling when you play a song, (not knowing anything about the track), for it to change your mood in an instant.

I’ll admit, this doesn’t happen very often to me, but was so pleasantly surprised when I hit play.

There aren’t too many songs that make me go, “YEAH”, along with the whole dancing thing in my chair to then explode making it a natural reaction to actually get up and dance, even inviting the dogs to dance with me.

I was doubting myself in recent times that I may never feel energy again, or genuinely smile naturally. (Sad, I know, maybe it’s just the world we are living in.)

This may be a big call to make, but the fact that this track gave me hope, feel freedom and happiness, is a sign of exceptional things for Edward Knocks. If this doesn’t become a hit, then there is something wrong with people’s ears. 

The lo-fi Pop song to be released on 28th August actually says it all in the title; “My Energy”! How spot on is this!!

As soon as My Energy begins with the first words of “Hello World, Hello Friends”, you’re sucked right in. At approximately 120 bpm, this high energy track twists with various sounds integrating the catchy 80’s and 90’s era and incorporating very cool synth, beats, enhanced vocalisation and various effects bringing it all together making it a new and exciting 2020 masterpiece.

Edward Knocks was previously signed to a label under a different name; who that was, I don’t know, but whether he was successful or not, I don’t care because My Energy proves Edward Knocks knows how to create and generate mind-blowing songs to grab attention.

Knocks’s vocals are smooth and almost spoken like over a pumping beat that’s contagious to say the least.

If this doesn’t make you happy and you can’t feel it, then perhaps it’s time you consider seeing a psychologist 😂

 

My Energy is quirky, uplifting and free flowing. Don’t miss the release on Friday 28th August on our New Music Page.

Look Forward To Winter with New Indie Music from Gordon Holland


Icon The Great is Back For More with Tripper Remix

Single Cover

An expression of longing for winter mornings spent in bed with the one you love, ‘I’m Looking Forward to Winter’ is the latest single to come from Australian singer-songwriter Gordon Holland. Taking on a 70s singer-songwriter vibe, ‘I’m Looking Forward to Winter’ is the first song recorded with Gordon’s full band, giving this track a lush and warming feel to it. Inspired by time spent in his hometown of Perth and a holiday in California, the imagery reflects that comforting feeling of listening to the rain outside whilst you’re safe and warm inside. Written and demoed in the space of an hour, ‘I’m Looking Forward to Winter’ is filled with the raw spontaneity of a much needed writing session.

Originally from Perth, Gordon Holland now calls the musical shores of Melbourne home. Gordon recorded his debut single ‘Melbourne Bitter’ at a home studio in Laurel Canyon, Los Angeles with Luke Tierney (Silver Jet, Chris Shiflett & The Dead Peasants) mastered by Tom Beard (Deluxe Mastering). ‘Melbourne Bitter’ is a country-tinged song about self- confidence, disappointment and living away from family. He has also collaborated with Melbourne Singer-Songwriter Charlie Lane on her successful song ‘The Darkest Time’ which was featured on Spotify’s official Badass Women playlist. Gordon‘s single Melbourne Bitter went on to become a semi-finalist in the 2019 International Songwriting Competition. “a scintillating new single … a personal and bittersweet ode to the plight of a struggling musician.” – Walter Price – Global Texan Chronicles. Mixing up alt country with big choruses reminiscent of Britpop, Gordon Holland is confessional, nostalgic and humorous, with his music amplifying his life experiences in a way that resonates with his audience.

Fly, Shine & Stream New Electro-Rap Song From President Of Pop

Single Cover

President Of Pop, or POP as he calls himself followed up on his debut single and anti social media manifesto titled “Google-ized by Google’s Eyes, (The No Internet Song).” His new track is called ‘Fly/Shy’ 

As the press release explains: ‘Fly/Shine,’ is an artistic act reminding everyone to listen to their heart, and the power they can access and feel when doing so. The President of POP points out the importance of listening to our inner voice, believing and chasing our dreams, rather than thinking we are losers. This empowering song sustains the momentum initiated by the previously released one against social media, “Google-ized by Google’s Eyes, (The No Internet Song),” two intelligent and honest songs that expose the listener to their own reality and habits. 

Clearly, POP is on a mission to raise awareness on important topics through his music. To make his statement noticeable, he uses very unique tunes while composing his tracks. ‘Fly/Shine’ includes his sharp rap flow, synth, and subtle pads he pulls out on the beat, intensifying the mood and the message alongside it. ‘Fly/Shine’ is interesting from the point of overall aesthetics – for some the song might be too loud, too busy, and too overdone, but we find it somewhat consistent. As we dive deep into his lyrics, we can hear the balance between sounds, and get the hint that all of the chaos was created intentionally. Good work!

Single cover

Hey Young Soul’ is the latest single to come from Australian singer songwriter Paul Moleta. Inspired by his time spent in a rehabilitation centre following lower spinal surgeries, ‘Hey Young Soul’ is imbued with positive energy, a real cheery summer tune. Talking about the song himself, Paul Moleta explains… 

I wrote the song to remind myself and other Rehabilitators and families that love, persistence and a positive mindset will help us conquer the challenges each day presents us with.

With its upbeat and summery sound, ‘Hey Young Soul’ marches us towards a stranger and happier mindset, a sentiment that has become increasingly important in our daily lives.

Growing up in the Northern suburbs of Melbourne, Paul began writing songs at an early age inspired to become a singer-songwriter. Blending alternative pop rock melodies with thoughtful and introspective lyrics, 

Paul Moleta has used his music as a driving force to follow his dreams. Paul relocated to Ireland in 2017 where he fulfilled his dream of recording in Windmill Studios where he recorded his recent single ‘Hypnotised’ which has amassed nearly 20,000 streams on Spotify. Whilst living in Ireland he played major Irish festivals such as Electric Picnic, before moving back to Australia to continue pursuing music.
