“Light On”

Released on December 3, the Light On EP from London-based artist Byron Langley is a collection of indie-pop tracks with hints of electronica and rock. The South African-born Langley has crafted a collection of tracks here that will easily find a home on commercial radio.

 

“Light On” kicks off with “Higher”. The light, folk-infused opening of this track gives way to a synth-driven pop chorus that encapsulates a great number of the styles to be found on the remainder of the EP. “In Tune” is a breezy folk-pop track, which is followed by the rockier “Gold”, which again demonstrates the artist’s ability to write big, catchy choruses. Next up is the title track, which drops the pace and reintroduces some more of the electronic elements found in the opener. However, it is the closing track, “Westside” that is the standout for me. Starting with moody guitars and a low-down rock sensibility, the track takes a left field turn and introduces a big drum and bass breakdown. This bolt from out of the blue serves to take what could have been a fairly somber end track to an energetic and exciting closing note.

 

Langley is a good songwriter – the lyrics here speak of the mental battle of fighting through addiction and depression – the choruses are earworms and the production throughout is world-class. I am sure the Light On EP will be a success and that we will be hearing a lot more from Byron Langley in future.

 

Simon says 4 out of 5 stars.

“Like You Do”

There’s good reason why some artists create so much buzz and attention and Sätilä is definately one of them. The Finnish born, London Based artist has so far garnered over a million streams with previous releases and I’m predicting a similar result with “Like You Do”. 

Sätilä’s vocals are smooth as silk and uncomplicated as “Like You Do” builds into a dimension that takes you from one world to another. What begins with a new age electronic feel with synth sounds  are overtaken by his flawless vocal. The transition from verse to chorus is effortless, smooth and somewhat metamorphosing; and that’s just the start. 

The drive from the bass and synth lines keeps the track moving and explodes when the second verse kicks in, creating a groove that pulsates you into the simple and catchy chorus the spells H.I.T. to me. 

What I like about the style of “Like You Do”, is it’s fusion of electronic pop synths and beats combined with Sätilä‘s velvet vocals and a chorus that sticks. 

Just when you think you know where the song is going, the threshold rises into a bridge that pulls back without over reacting whilst still using the build of beats cleverly back in the mix before it’s completion of the last exploding chorus with the ear worms well and truly apparent.

If you haven’t guessed already, I really like like this and given “Like You Do” a well deserved 5 hearts! 

Verdict: 5/5 Hearts
