Tom Auton- Stay (Single review)

Image
Tom Auton is a 19-year old singer/ songwriter prodigy from Cardiff, Wales. Tom started learning guitar and piano at the age of 9, which has played a large part in his music writing. If that is not all, he won two national first place awards at "Open Mic UK ( 2014) and " Future Music UK Song Writing Competition a year later. Tom made his breakthrough breaking into Fender's top Ten undiscovered artists' list, which is an achievement for someone so young.  He now releases his second EP ' Big Glass Little Bowl ',  a follow up to a highly successful debut. Tom's next single Stay  has all the swagger and bravado to be a hit. The overall bluesy sound supplements the hubris of the star's lyrical content about a song  I believe is about falling for the wrong woman. The simple guitar lines stretch and squeal along to the star's cool vibe. His vocals are not too flashy but are suited to a simple electric acoustic song like this. I would personally

Folk Singer/ Songwriter Lilith  returns with her latest single Monsoon , a follow up to Deep Waters,   A track I had the pleasure to review a few months back. Lilith is based in London, having started writing songs at the age of 11, and entering singing competitions.

Instead it  showcases the mercurial talent and depths this teenage songstress is able to own This track is a more soulful and stripped back affair from her previous outing. What we get  is a beautiful and warm pop song with nice subtle electric beats that adds warmth to liliths' angelic, and at times, haunting vocals. Monsoon is  what makes her unique, that she is able to sing about subjects about feeling lonely puts the listener at ease. This punchy and powerful piece will win her over a host of new fans with it's impressive production and a whole new ma

Monky Fighters- She From Keg ( Single Review)

Monkey Fighters describe themselves as "   Presidents of the Stone Age, or Queens of the USA". This quirky statement underlies the band's energy and strong personality that comes from a band starting off. The Bristol- based group originally formed in 2003. However, the band soon disbanded after releasing an EP, amid a few lineup changes with drummers. They have now returned with a re-recording of those tracks, and recently released debut single " She From Tiny Keg ", initially published at the tail end of last month via all good digital platforms and streaming services. Monkey Fighters play alternative- grunge- prog rock with an extra does of Punk added to the mix.   If this doesn't pique your interest, the opening riff will whet your appetite. The combination of an edgy bassline and the opening chords of the crunchy guitar riff will instantly keep you hooked. The track manages to sustain this high tempo riff throughout over the steady tempo of bass, that
