With March in full swing, why not treat yourself to some new sounds before the weekend kicks in? This week’s choices are full of great lyrics and big choruses, so settle in and click the pics for a listen!
Rita Ray – Love Ain’t the Same
Describes as cinematic soul, Rita Ray hits us right in the feels with new track Love Ain’t the Same. With a timeless sound and an enjoyable warmth in the vocals, the classic R&B sound sails on a sea of melodies and beautiful structures that are a joy to listen to. The strings add that epic, sweeping nature that allows the track to breathe and grow when necessary. A beautiful piece of music.
BNGRS – Kalamba
A collective of Artists and producers in LA, BNGRS create anthemic, beat-driven music that beds into your brain and refuses to leave. On Kalamba, they team up with Latashá to create a settled, lofi sound with vocals that are warm and sultry but can become more playful and take hold of the track at the drop of a hat. It’s these distinct changes that make Kalamba so interesting and will keep you coming back for more.
ttypes – Building A Life
The solo project of Michigan songwriter Tim Krauss, ttypes’ Building a Life mixes catchy mod-rock with an indie-pop sound and a little glam rock is thrown in for good measure. The way it flits from idea to idea is truly mesmerising, with Krauss’ vocals able to hold everything together in a meaningful way. A song about heartbreak, betrayal, and leaving abusers behind, it tackles hard-hitting topics but still manages to create a fun atmosphere to play around with.
Tyne-James Organ – Sunday Suit
Showing off an uninhibited playful side to Tyne-James Organ’s commanding yet spirited vocals, Sunday Suit celebrates overcoming tragedy and feeling triumphant on the other side. Built around all-encompassing choruses and powerful buildups, the track hurtles forward on a rolling drumbeat as Organ has fun with a track that sees him perfectly at home. His confidence is brimming and it comes out through the music.
