Lofi pop, epic Funk and energetic guitar all make and appearance this week so bring in your weekend in the best way possible by clicking the pics below for a listen!
Rook Monroe – Jolie
With a dreamy, lofi atmosphere, Rook Monroe effortlessly creates a belt-laden party pop track that’s relaxed and playful. The chorus is what really stands out here, managing to capture a summer-laden vibe that begs to be played on a hot day as you chill with your friends or loved ones. The production really helps pull everything together with the vocals suiting the track perfectly.
Stretch Soul Gang – Ain’t That Easy
Starting as a traditional soul track, Ain’t That Easy grew naturally into the funky, playful atmosphere you hear before you now. With fast-paced bass holding everything together, the vocals slide over the top as sax fills in the gaps and drums provide the steady changes. The hip-hop vocals just provide that extra layer that really make it stand out. Original and vibrant.
Julian Frampton Band – Quicksand
The slow-building Quicksand takes its time to get to where it wants to go, but when it arrives it hits hard. With a bit of psyche rock, an energetic chorus and some playful guitar work, the track ebbs and flows to perfection against some emotion-laden vocals that revel in the atmosphere. A strong track that begs to be heard more than once.
