The New Realm have gone on to forge a promising fanbase by supporting a host of legendary artists at some of UK’s top live music venues, and headlining their own shows in London.

Jonni Slater - Lights ( Refracted) Single Review

Image
Jonni Slater now returns with his new single " Lights (Refracted)"  from upcoming EP “ Inversions”.  A sweet and melancholic track with heartfelt lyrics packed full of raw passion and emotion.  Slater has been described “as being a talented kaleidoscopic and charismatic songwriter”. The Bristol-born Singer Songwriter has played all over Europe and supported Bastille and Decemberists.  Alongside a continuous programme of sound for 24 days in 24 hours, "Lights ( Refracted) "  is a structured form of ambience that gradually builds to a finish. It starts with wistful piano tinkering and Slater’s solitary vocals that creates an intimate mood that climaxes with an outpouring of emotions that is not hard to empathise with. The inclusion of backing vocals and drum loop steadily clambers towards the chorus that adds density to the overall power of the song’s message.  For Fans of Peter Gabriel., Genesis You can follow Jonni Slater via his website; https://www.jonn
