For anyone who’s looking for an atmospheric song with contemplative lyrics, look no further than Adry’s latest single “Well,” which soars high and wide with a catchy chorus and sounds buttery-crisp with top-notch production. Check out the song on Spotify here or check out the lyric video below:
Adry’s been releasing music for more than a decade now, but fans have been waiting a while for a new release. He explains how “Well” became to be:
“I’ve been on a journey with music over the years and this track is pretty much the product of that,” Adry said. “I penned the lyrics in a Berlin hotel room and recorded it at studios in London and the USA. Writing on the road opens up a whole new world of inspiration, fusing different cultures and emotions.”
The result is a song with strong lyrics that tell a tale and instrumentals that are clearly defined. It begins with a somber tone and shadowy synths as Adry’s distinctive voice comes in with a sense of longing and desire. The listener is then welcomed to the chorus like a shine of light, as it brightens the song up with hope and inspiration but still hangs onto vulnerability, as he sings “back into a dream while I’m getting scared.” The differences between the light and dark seem to be a big theme of the song and it reflects in the tone as well as with the message. The breakdown solo showcases delicate yet heartfelt guitar that can be a sign of how the person in the song is feeling.
Overall, “Well” has a range of emotions to keep anyone engaged for many repeat listens. Hopefully, this track is a sign for more future music from Adry to drop soon. We look forward to his upcoming releases and we will be adding “Well” to our newest Pop-Rock playlists!
Joey Flats’ latest track “WASTED” is a surprising departure from the rapper’s previous work. Tapping into an alternative rock nerve, the song’s electric sounds and heartfelt vibes will delight dedicated fans and newcomers alike. Check out the song below:
“WASTED” is a well composed song with catchy hooks, clean guitars and fluid vocals all wrapped up in top-notch production. The immersive lyrics give a sense of desperation, which leads to multiple listens, leaving a lasting impact on the listener. The words capture a moment in a relationship and exposes the vulnerability we feel when we depend on others.
It’s always interesting to hear an artist create music in different genres. The clear production and vocal overlays found in rap and Hip-Hop come through here nicely and show that distortion and soaring guitar solos aren’t always needed to make a solid rock song. The overall sound of this track would not be out of place in a skate-pop-punk mixtape. If you’re looking for fast, youthful and awesome, look no further than “WASTED.”
We look forward to hearing more from Joey Flats and we’re curious to see what genre he jumps into next. To see and hear more of Joey, click here.
After achieving critical acclaim in India with her unique blend of Hindi folk and jazz, she’s shedding previous conceptions of her art and embracing moody pop ballads and glittering electronics. For the five songs that comprise “Define Me”, Subhi enlisted a talented cast of producers to build out her heartfelt compositions, infusing them with a late night dance floor energy and widescreen synth flourishes that are sure to have you in your feelings.
Check out the titular song below:
“With this EP release, I feel liberated,” Subhi said. “Being an Indian-American, I have always had this inner conflict of where I belong. For years, I resisted releasing my English songs. This past year I realized that I need to be true to who I am and let the world see me. This EP tells the story of my evolution as an artist and an individual – I finally woke up, got out of my own way, endured rejections and in this process defined who I am.”
After immigrating to the US from India at the age of 16, Subhi found herself working on Wall Street. Unfulfilled and adrift, an internship with Oscar-nominated filmmaker Mira Nair helped her to realize her true passion was to make music, a desire that had been slowly burning since growing up in New Delhi and listening to her grandfather recite his favorite poems every evening. Early on she discovered that her delivery and cadence lent itself to the rhythms of jazz, and teamed up with local musicians in Chicago to make her debut album, “Shaitaan Dil (Naughty Heart),” which was co-presented by The Jazz Institute of Chicago.
Though her blend of storytelling and intricate jazz compositions brought her plenty of accolades, and a growing fan base back in India, her latest foray sees her diving headfirst into the sounds of contemporary American pop. Across her new EP, she investigates her identity as an Indian American, flexing her years of songwriting to make her most moving work yet.
Southern California 9-piece Ska/Rock/Reggae/Pop-Punk Band Half Past Two has released its latest single “Mean Green” from the band’s upcoming full-length album on all streaming platforms. Check out the song here:
Produced by David Irish with Meagan Dolce at Pot of Gold Recording, the song is meant to be fun but also hold a strong message. Guitarist Max Beckman said the single is a return to form for the band while also a way of challenging themselves.
“The writing process started like many of our songs with Tara’s lyrics and a basic structure by myself,” Beckman said. “Pre-pandemic the two of us had been writing more closely with trombonist Jack Sneddon who brought a whole new life to the track with his arrangement for the horn section and main guitar riff. In the studio we got deep into the arrangement, adding multiple layers of vocals and weaving synth and guitar leads. I couldn’t be happier with the finished product and think it’s one of our best tracks to date.”
After five studio releases and over 100 shows to their name, Half Past Two have headlined at the House of Blues Anaheim and Chain Reaction, and have supported national and international touring acts including Reel Big Fish, The Aquabats, Less Than Jake, The Skatalites, RX Bandits, The Selecter, The English Beat, Mustard Plug, The Toasters, and Pato Banton.
Love Letters From Space has released “The Note in Her Hand,” a new song that brings awareness to depression and suicide. Check out the song below:
Upon first listen, the track begins with a cheerful vibe as harmonious vocals and a melodic piano line flow in. Though it quickly becomes apparent this song has a deeper meaning, with the “note” from the title being the suicide note from a girl. The lyrics transform into the note itself, illustrating the hardships that many people battling depression go through, such as only having one way out and seeing the world better off without them. It is clear the song wants to bring awareness to this topic, and it does so in a tactful way.
At this point, the song picks up with a driving guitar and upbeat drums. Love and support become the theme here with a lyrical focus on searching for ways to deal with depression. The video shows some popular figures who seemed to have it all yet still succumbed to committing suicide, truly illustrating the fact that mental problems can affect anyone.
The song had a goal of bringing awareness to a subject that many wouldn’t address, being bold in its approach yet still providing entertaining value in the musical talent on display, which is nothing short of outstanding. In the end, the song accomplishes what it sets out to do. Bravo on the singing, instrumental performances and spotlight on a serious issue affecting many people today. We look forward to hearing more from Love Letters From Space.
