All the Rest Our Youth - BRASH! Magazine BlogArtist: All the Rest
Track: “Our Youth”
Georgia-based Indie four-piece All the Rest drop a tight slice of compelling synthpop groove with new single, “Our Youth”.

Boasting impressively original and ear-catching synth-sonics, the 3-minute 24-second track works its playlist friendly duration at pace; Bass (Tre Houman) and drums (Jud Harris) playing off each other, to create a shifting, syncopated groove that dares you not to move; the obligatory, ‘Industry-standard’ grid-snapped precision set off nicely by an creative approach to rhythmic structure. Frontmen Caleb Smith’s and Baylee Waller’s voices contrasting and complementing in an engaging back and forth through the verses and a rising, soaring harmony in the choruses; framed by funky electro-phonics, derived from synth FX pedal and/or synth (I suspect a bit of both – answers on a postcard, please); the song providing a cool, neo-80s vibe throughout with inspired sound creation.

Backed-up by smartly judged use of pitch and filter FX on both vocal and instrument alike, ‘Our Youth’ engages throughout. Light on its feet and with an eye to the skies, All the Rest’s latest single wins you over with accomplished production and instrumentation; but wins your heart with strikingly honest lyric, delivered in a series of pop-perfect phrases and hooks. With both musical integrity and instantly singalong chorus, “Our Youth” clearly demonstrates All the Rest are ready and able to bridge the gap between the Indie act and mainstream success.

LA by Kyan Artist: Kyan
Track: “L.A.”
With sweeping majesty in instrumentation and soulful honesty in vocal rendition, independent artist Kyan delivers a singular and standout pop/soul epic with new single, “L.A.”.

Disarmingly lowkey in its opening moments, new song “L.A.” breathes into existence with gentle, but precise dabs of strings, shifting ambient and drum bursts that tumble and fall, cinematic. The instrumentation grows in pulse and surge to great ocean swells of string and emotion. Wonderous backing voice joins in soul-deep tone and harmony. Cymbal and crash shatter, explode and rasp; the track rising Olympus high. Throughout all Kyan’s voice soars magnificent; expert use of vocal technique and tone delivering a steady-build/slow burn of inevitable truth; part confession/part prayer.

With great finesse and deft hand, production technique is used to frame and enhance the 3-minute 43-second pop odyssey; inspired use of sound design casting an entire world of sonic texture; well-judged FXs applied with taste to create depth, variation, and movement within the stereo field. Sincere in intention and audacious in action, “L.A.” is pop music of the highest measure and offers further testament to the great talent and even greater potential of Kyan.

Woman with a Knife by FelinArtist: Felin
Track: “Woman with a Knife”
With swagger and strut, attitude and gut, Stockholm-based independent artist Felin delivers a sharp dose of cinematic electro-pop, with new single, “Woman with a Knife”.

In delightful taunt and quietly coiled malice, “Woman with a Knife” rises from the shadows in precisely orchestrated layers of building instrumentation and production. The 3-minute 3-second track shifting like musical theatre on a razor’s edge; kick and bass landing deep and proud, snare and percussion delivered with punch and slap. Sparse arrangement of piano and guitar making compelling use of sonic space, allowing the silence to hit hard. Felin’s vocals teasing, sardonic, and foreboding in the verses; rising anthemic in the chorus; tall and confident, brazen and unapologetic.

Delivered with dark humor and driven by raw emotion and considerable anger, ‘Woman with a Knife’ makes for a striking and intoxicating listening experience; threat, promise, rallying cry, and inspiration; “Woman with a Knife” is all of the above; framed in starkly cinematic tones. Felin’s latest single will echo through the bedrooms, college dorms, car rides, and homes of women everywhere. You better not f**k with a woman with a knife.

Amorie - For No One cover artArtist: Amorie
Track: “For No One”
Self described, ‘Electro Pop Enigma’ Amorie delivers a haunting re-imagining of The Beatles’ 1966 release “For No One”. Taken from The Fab Four’s seminal Revolver Album, the song’s strikingly open and creatively off balance stereo field is carefully and lovingly reflected and cast anew for the contemporary marketplace, by a deftly crafted arrangement and mix; Amorie’s rendition echoing the original, by favoring a right biased compositio; a mournful soft pad breathing in and out in graceful waves, sits slightly right; the inspired use of right to left panning to introduce the iconic French Horn of Sir George Martin’s production, is recreated here with modern day riser blended in, across the stereo field; a stripped down version of the guitar part, is tastefully delayed to add ear candy. Amorie’s voice floats at the phantom center of the track; her engaging interpretation, bringing a longing sense of nostalgia and melancholy to Paul McCartney penned lyrics; well finessed reverb, framing her voice almost ethereal and gaseous. Lush and gorgeous use of backing vocal, double, harmony and FX, produces a rich multi-layered ambient of shifting depth and width. Though born and raised in St Louis, at 18 years old, Amorie moved to Liverpool to study at the city’s Institute of Performing Arts. In the stand out young artist’s own words, “I idolised the character of this song – I wanted to be the kind of girl that cried for no one, whose words would haunt long after she’s gone. It’s been a really empowering experience to put it into my own voice and style.” The long term and heartfelt connected felt by Amorie for this song, speaks quiet volumes of the common value that sits at the core of all great music – passion. Built upon a bedrock of sincerity, Amorie’s “For No One” is an accomplished and stand out work of profound artistic integrity. Put simply, is has been performed, recorded and produced with love.

“For No One” is out now across all streaming media platforms. You can find out more about Amorie via her website.

On the Subject of Breathing Cover FinalArtist: Bryde
Track: “On the Subject of Breathing”
With raspy guitar on the grind and lashings of lyrics on the unwind, UK based singer/songwriter Bryde cooks up a fierce portion of glorious Independent noise, with new single “On the Subject of Breathing”. The Pembrokeshire born Artist’s ninth release of 2018, following up on a rapid fire series of indie-drops, from the brooding build and break of “To Be Brave” (opening track of 2018 release and debut album ‘Like an Island’), to the graceful, oblique and beauty in obscurity of “Euphoria”, “On the Subject of Breathing” marks Bryde’s fifth single release of original material this year, with remixes of “To Be Brave” and “Fast Awake” and an acoustic version of “Peace”, adding to that tally ; the artist smartly embracing the ‘search engine friendly’ practice of uploading new material on a regular basis. Bryde demonstrating the importance for even the most strikingly creative and independent artists to work the market, thereby freeing themselves to craft original and challenging work. “On the Subject of Breathing” is a pulsating 3 minutes 18 seconds of contrasting dynamics, depths and moods. Driving, raw guitars crack, crunch and grunge the track forward; supported by heavy weighted drums, punching deep into the stereo field. Additional distorted six strings wail and sing in resonating sirens of feedback and loop. Bryde’s voice rises and falls in a great emotional landscape of dark valley, building hillside and soaring cliff edge. Her lyrics whispered and whipped at you, in conflicting stanzas of honest phrase, question in frustration and exclamation in anguish and relief. The work of the talented guitarist and vocalist working in odd, shifting harmony and partnership, both at odds and to the same end; Very much the embodiment of the singer/songwriter, instrument and voice inseparable, as one and in single act of creation, Bryde is part of a new wave of female artists, like fellow UK based Annabel Allum (Monster Pick “Sofa Song”) and Canadian Jeen (Monster Pick “Bring Out Your Knives”) creating noisy, unapologetic music that stands in willful protest and rejection of, a hitherto male dominated industry; content to rehash the same old, lazy and generic, ‘user friendly’ pop nothingness; placing the presentation of ‘hyper sexualized’ young women/girls, at the center of a tired and entirely amoral marketing scam, designed to ply the public with overpriced merchandise, they probably can’t afford and certainly don’t need.

Bryde is touring the UK throughout November. To find out more, check out her website!

eSensuals Cover Art - Fans of Jimmy CenturyArtist: Fans of Jimmy Century
Track: “Ghosts of Paradise – Acoustic Choirgang Remix”/ eSensuals Greatest Hits
Las Vegas based nu wave/indie pop/neo noir pro noisemakers Fans of Jimmy Century drop 12 track sonic odyssey, “eSensuals”, featuring acoustic rendition of their stand out hit, “Ghosts of Paradise”. Vocalist/Songwriter Alicia Perrone and Producer/Songwriter Victor James, aka Fans of Jimmy Century, began 2018 with an ambitious set of release targets; intended to test themselves, in terms of productivity, songwriting craft and musicianship. What followed is a roller coaster ride of month by month releases, that blended and bent musical style and influence, tasking the duo like never before. An aggressive and personally taxing promotion and networking strategy, supported the releases across social media, local radio and digital platform. Fans of Jimmy Century courting playlist curator, blogger and DJ; the seasoned campaigners, bringing the hustle to a new level of intensity. With the ever-necessary paying work in voice over, beat creation and video, also continuing on a day to day basis, Alicia and Victor had to walk the tightrope of burn out, stumbling on more than one occasion. In this regard, “eSensuals” is not only an astonishing and strikingly accomplished collection of musical style, idea and influence, it is testament to the dedication, passion and sacrifice required of the modern artist; working in a recovering, but nevertheless unforgiving market, that asks much of independent practitioners and gives little in return. Each track possessing it’s own distinct musical personality, each with it’s own unique value and intrigue; from the swaggering, theatrical and demented singalong, “All My Friends are Ice Queens”, to the hard-driving, mustang drag race, sonic rocket and attitude orgasm, “Best of My Generation (Johnny Rotten)” and pop rock, night at the opera and anthem on mars, “Ghosts of Paradise”; “eSensuals” draws its influences from the likes of Prince, Queen, Bowie and beyond, twisting and reworking each and re-imagining them as a sprawling, eclectic carnival of sound, melody, beat and harmony. Great bands not only create great music, they create their own worlds. Welcome to the singular, extraordinary, stand out and stand apart world of Fans of Jimmy Century.

fries by foxgluvv.jpgArtist: Foxgluvv
Track: “Fries”
With gentle grooves to ease the hazy moods, and 80s inspired bubble-pop-one-shots, London based artist Foxgluvv drops second single of 2018, ‘Fries’. Following on the back of ‘Crush’ and ‘Nothing’ (both released 2017), and ‘Not Cute’ (released earlier this year), ‘Fries’ continues the young artist’s love of short, punchy titles ; each promoted by eye-catching slice of pop art, serving to frame and enhance her music. With clear branding ever more important for aspiring pop stars, Foxgluvv has successfully managed to marry market imperative with well judged creative expression ; proving that artistic integrity and the commercial can live together, if care and imagination is applied. Tight drum machine beats and modulated electric piano stabs, snap and smack the track through its, playlist-very-friendly, 2 minutes 35 second runtime (3 minutes is the new 3 minutes 30 seconds). An impressive array of vocal FXs, shift, overlap and dance; tasteful use of vocal synthesizer, saturation, pitch shift and delay, creating a busy, but very listenable, arrangement. Floxguvv’s lead vocal talk/walks with uber cool nocholence on the low down ; providing a calming, laid back centre to the multilayered composition ; further enhanced by smart use of backing vocal and double track. ‘Fries’ carries itself with a quiet confidence and understated, quality production. In the space of four short singles, Floxguvv is quickly finding her own sound and public image. Would you like fries with that? Yes, you would. You would like Fries with that.

thumbnail_An Archipelago Rises.jpgArtist: Evelyn Drach
Track: “An Archipelago Rises”
Pitch dropped vox sample ; primal utterance, ambient in the pitch ; idea/concept/cliché/falsehood/myth ; in snippet and snapshot, glanced through language, exquisite/oblique ; filtered sub bass rises ; shattered sound ; musician/storyteller/artist/curator Evelyn Drach releases new single, ‘Archipelago Rises’. The seventh act in a track by track, protracted reveal/release/requiem of Drach’s debut album ; ten years in the making, composition/collage/canon ; a scattered collection of thought/memory/dream ; as physical act of crafting vibrations in air to stimulate electrical signal in our brains. The fine art trained, experimental filmmaker and dancer, Drach streams through lyrical image/slogan/insight ; a cascading consciousness, neither fully aware, nor not ; her voice moving in lightly held phrases, words on the verge of dissipating. Sonic moments erupt, only to die back, funeral pyre in reverb. Whispers creep and crawl, vowel/consonant/noise. Brooding low tones ; contrasting mids, climbing in hope ; icicles chime distant, high/lost/vibrant. Evelyn Drach’s work stands as testament to great living creativity of contemporary music. Pioneers of the art form ceaseless in their production, though submerged by the towering din of average, from chart and independent artist alike. Archipelago rises/surprises/inspires from second 1 to second, 4 minute and 58 ; it conjures an experience, tangible of tone and texture ; challenging its listener and, in turn, compelling them to be challenged. Strikingly original, oblique and obtuse ; an act of poetry, phonic sketch ; a meditation in sound. Great Art is not just inspired, it inspires. ‘Archipelago Rises’ awakens possibility.

thumbnail_Peakes-cover2.jpgArtist: PEAKES
Track: “Still Life”
From out of the lonely, the bracken, the vast emptiness of never inhabited land ; the rolling green, the windswept, the never know and so never forgotten ; bass synth shudders, fused beat, bit crisped, whispers on the breeze ; for only the lonely, ambient-pop trio Peakes release new single, ‘Still Life’. Having released their debut EP, ‘Space’ in 2017, featuring the synthwave infinite and sonic extraordinary, ‘Waves’, the three piece followed up with a cover of Kate Bush’s seminal 1985 hit ‘Running Up that Hill’ (taken from her ‘Hounds of Love’ album) ; filled with melancholy, grace and seduction in absence. Their second single of 2018, ‘Still Life’ represents a return to original material. Peakes obsession/love affair with isolation continues, with diligent and inspired use of reverb to craft not only depth, layer and sense of space, but also weave, texture and alter the phonics of their music ; distance and dislocation being central to both their creative motivation and process. The 3 minute 21 second track commences with a sense of curiosity, and an almost tangible impression of fascination with the great noise to be found in silence. Vocalist Molly Puckering shards and shivers lyrics in deftly worked breathes and slithers of reverb and delay ; her words resonating as an ode to the liberty of loneliness ; the temporal expanse of possibility, unique to solitude. Long, drawn out musical elements, landscape out across the song, in giant plateaus of self expression and melodic beauty ; Maxwell Shirley and Pete Redshaw working in well practiced harmony with their lead singer, to conjure a music piece born of contrasting nature of the moorland around them ; an ancient land of wonder and darkness. Embedded into their surroundings, and cutting very much their own path ; Peakes are, in the every sense, a band apart. And all the more special, because of it.

Tobi's new music monster


Spaceman by Chloe BlackArtist: Chløë Black
Track: “Spaceman”
Franco-Australian, self described, ‘International Woman of Misery’, the sardonic, the singular, the willfully particular, Chløë Black drops self released, hypno-cryptic, electro alt pop gem, “Spaceman”. Graceful melodic ambients, and contrasting sunken piano counts, forcefully blunted to obscure, saunter opulent on shunted snippet beats and stuttered percussive ripples, effected. Orbiting elliptical around a black hole sun, this grunge infused, EDM turned inside out, sonic spacewalk in freefall, resonates magnificent in ‘giving zero f**ks’ gravity. Contradiction brought to Art, through imitating life ; a musical personality borderline-ed, daring to be maligned ; iconic beauty, framed ugly, oddity extraordinary. “Spaceman” stands tall on broken legs ; shifting from pop consumable to composition ‘chart unusable’, an aural testament to the conflicted nature of its creator ; kaleidoscope of contradiction, singalong in introspection, in defiance of expectation, Chløë Black is writing the hymn sheet, from which we all gratefully sing.

No Real Control by The TrustedArtist: The Trusted
Track: “No Real Control”
Jump up and down to the real indie noise ; Southern based (UK) four piece, ‘The Trusted’, serve up a healthy portion of the guitar driven independent rock, with new single, “No Real Control”, that’s bad for your ears and very good for your soul. Lead guitarist, Dale Holt-Mead, drives the six string in a series of surging contrasts ; running the grunge rock gauntlet, from tightly finessed stops and starts, to well judged, flatout sprints of carefree, awesome distortion ; the shift and shape of the song held together by drummer, Dave Batchelor and bass player, Fin Cunningham, the latter doing the majority of the heavy lifting in the verses with a quietly confident Pixie-esque dragline ; Dave Batchelor, typifying the sound and attitude of band, by comprehensively working the whole kit, to bring out both emotional and sonic dynamics of the track, through creative use of rhythmic variety & percussive idea.

Lead singer, Tom Cunningham’s Indie-pop vocals resonate with a rasping, soulful edge that draws the ear ; his laid back pace, compelling the listener to take a step closer and care just a little bit more. “No Real Control” is pub gigs, beer stained floors and plastic cup ashtrays. It’s a singalong, bounce about, hug your mates, ‘it’ll be alright’ track. It’s late teens / early twenties and a world of infinite possibilities. It’s everything that might be and nothing that can’t. It’s whatever gets you through the night. ..it’s alright.

With My Army by Paloma RushArtist: Paloma Rush
Track: “With My Army”
LA based self described, ‘Pop / EDM / Hip Hop’, Artist, Paloma Rush delivers a tight right of punch & pop, electronic ‘don’t let the dance music stop’, with a deft left, word to the beat spoken drop ; a well crafted summer banger, of accomplished instrumentation and surprising depth in composition and mix ; that successfully combines, inspiring use of contrasting musical element, perfectly pitched vocal arrangement, and an ‘A to the X-to-the-Y-to-the-Z’ of electro pop, dance floor hot, percussive device and FX Vox ; with the driving swagger & shunt of a bassline grunt, and the low down pump of well judged, boom and bump, that engages the body and enriches the soul. “With My Army”, skips through the bars, light on its feet and built for repeat, the track changes up, floating on the four count, you had better fly! Very much an Artist on the up and up, Paloma Rush has just stepped up. ..she sings like it’s meant to be.

Cover-art Somethings Gotta GiveArtist:
PERK
Track: “Something’s Gotta Give”
With a quietly percussive snakebitten acoustic rattle, Scandinavian two piece, PERK, release exquisitely crafted melodic pop delight, “Something’s Gotta Give” ; a slow burn, defiant serenade in memoriam. Verses set restless, upon a shifting, smoldering ambient, uncoil into choruses driven by elegantly orchestrated use of harmony, through embered backing vocal and darkly contrasting instrumentation. “Something’s Gotta Give”, is a willful testament of both subject and Artistic Intent ; an embittered refusal to be broken by jilted love, and impassioned deliverance of a pop song with high musical values, in the face of so much dumbed down chartpop. A song born in the shadows, standing out all the more, for the slew of new singles courting the bright summer sunshine.

chasing-stars-by-fleurie.jpgArtist: Fleurie
Track: “Chasing Stars”
Singer Songwriter, Fleurie, gets lost in electro hot, long pop summer night, sound escape, “Chasing Stars”. Percussive layers play the frequency and stereo range alike, creating a pulsating experience of constantly shifting sonic space. Chasing from one auditory sensation to another, ambiance at speed, the track intoxicates. The well placed musical elements, allow Fleurie’s voice to float free and light, unencumbered as it is, by heavy handed Vox FXs, so prevalent in modern pop. Her vocals gently vapored in sustain by the tasteful use of reverb. In “Chasing Stars”, Fleurie has crafted a musical experience that echoes and enhances the lyrical. A song for the prolonged summer twilight, arms locked around those of who you love, in pursuit of the interstellar vista haze, lost in the perfect pop dream of outrunning the daybreak.

patawawa.jpgArtist: Patawawa
Track: “Fighting Me”
Derbyshire (UK) based, self described, DIY Disco Pop Outfit, Patawawa, drop, stop/start, funk soul, electro pop sonic infused, groovefest, new single, “Fighting Me”. Beth Garrett’s vocals stand tall, as she snarls, growls and struts her way through the accomplished, multi-instrumental arrangement. Smart use of contrasting harmony, timing and instrument timbre, backed up with a tight, disciplined ‘in house’ mix + master, allow the three piece band to indulge their musical imaginings with a dazzling array of melodic and percussive elements. Drawing upon an indulgent variety of ‘good time’ genres, both pre and post synthesizer, successfully blended to complement each other, “Fighting Me” is the new anthem to your summer night out.
