With a multitude of big-name releases this week, it’s important not to forget those up and coming musicians… enter New Music Fridays. We have a real barrage of talent this week with a retro quality from three talented musicians and one brilliant band. As always click the pics to listen.
Malik “The FreQ” Moore – Trouble
With its retro-soul sound, the spoken word beginning grows into a beautifully produced track that reflects the singer’s own inner struggles and challenges of inner-city disadvantage. It’s an honest and compelling piece that’s refreshing in its settled atmosphere and plays to the wonderful vocals. Fantastic.
Estella Dawn – Feet
Estella Dawn’s Feet harks back to a sound of times gone by with its fuzzy blues guitar against sultry, sensual vocals that builds mercilessly towards a chorus oozing in emotion. The vocals are so good they only need the guitar as backup, as the two sounds twist and turn around each other in a beautiful, bluesy dance. Tantalising.
Albert Jones – Say My Name
With bright guitars and hushed, effortless vocals, Say My Name saunters forward in its own little bubble of happiness. Sounding like a more indie version of Pink Floyd, you can really feel a blues vibe kick in before a hefty guitar solo bridges a gap for the track to once again flow onto more strong ideas.
Majak Door – Everybody Wants You
With an interesting, psychedelic surf rock sound, Majak Door know how to bring a song out of its shell. Reverberating guitars and steady drum beats move the track forward against floaty vocals, swirling dream-pop and an atmosphere that you just want to jump into.
