Image
Billboard Award-winning songwriter Jeff Tuohy has released his latest single "The Devil's In New Orleans", ahead of the musician's album Hudson Delta, set for release on August 25th,2021 The album was recorded and mixed in Brooklyn, following a tough year that saw the collapse of his 2019 debut, which gained much-needed radio airplay. The New York-based rock musician has been hailed as "one of the best up-and-coming songwriters in North America". "The Devil's In New Orleans" was once dubbed unsuitable for radio. Tuohy looks into the turmoil of modern society. The track sees soulful vocals spread over soft jazz piano keys. Jeff Tuohy sounds like the cunning wordsmith. as he talks over multi-layered horns and keys accompaniment. The track has dark undertones to a sneering vocalist that bursts into melody on the chorus. Overall, this is a track that will leave you pleasantly surprised, whilst looking over your shoulder. Words by Anselm Anderson SO

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

DAYS INDOORS is a British Rock band formed in 2015 that consists of Joe Killington on vocals, Jean-Marc Valat on drums, Gonçalo Charneca (aka Gonzo) on guitars and Mathew D. Seal on bass. The quartet cites bands as diverse as Foo Fighters, The Killers, Radiohead and Stereophonics as influences. They take inspiration from “the unexpected beauty that everyday experience sometimes brings”.  Heaven Can Wait is the group’s fourth single from their upcoming album Two Feet Under, due out this summer. This latest release is over Three minutes of energetic, pop- hook-laden rock that has the antidotes for a summer classic. Heaven Can Wait starts a purge of power chords that takes the listener on an impending trip through Killington’s sweet and telling vocals. The lyrics are evocative and the music is bright and tender. Charneca’s guitar sound is crisp and up-tempo that supplement Seal’s pounding bass line that doesn’t miss a beat in tandem with Valat’s neat drumming. The song reaches i
