Renato Medurecan, the creative mind behind Melodramatic Sinner, was having a fun time when writing the lively words to his song “Sour Beach.” Musically and thematically intertwined, this song is great for the summer and will having you smiling from ear to ear. Check out the song on Spotify or below:
“Sour Beach” starts off with a clearly defined guitar riff that is groovy and soothing, presenting a very relaxing vibe perfect for the beach. The drums are steady, and the vocals are smooth and enjoyable to listen to. Each verse is separated with harmonious guitar playing adding to the tropical setting the song has created. Overall, the production and delivery of the song is top-notch and feels effortless.
But without a doubt, the most memorable and bold aspect about “Sour Beach” is the lyrics, which tell a vivid story about a man’s sour experience at a beach. As the track title implies, the tale unfolds in a unique fashion where a straight man has an encounter with someone who he thought was a woman. But since it’s dark at this California beach, ordering a banana flavored ice cream proved to be a big mistake. This true experience must’ve been dreadful for Renato, but looking back, it has allowed for a great narrative to be told in a song.
Honestly, the colorful lyrics found here are a breath of fresh air from the usual contemporary tracks these days. A bit of humor goes a long way, and we look forward to hearing more misadventures from the mind behind Melodramatic Sinner. Hopefully the next experience isn’t too traumatizing!
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!
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.
The distinct voice of Gregory Dillon paired with chillwave synths merge to form a nostalgia-inducing cover of the emo pop band The All-American Rejects’ “Swing Swing.” Check out the song below:
The track opens with a spacey vibe as Gregory’s clear and mighty voice instantly captivates, reconstructing the original song’s rock setting into an enlightening chamber of self-discovery. It’s easy to lose track of space and time as the extraordinary sensation of the cover is expansive and ethereal yet personal and vulnerable. Gregory’s ability to meld his potent voice without overtaking from the smoother instrumentation is a balance that confirms his skill of understanding song composition and what is needed to make the best possible art.
Every cover song attempt offers many possible varying end results based on the artist’s skill and intention, and clearly Gregory knows what works for him if he can take an alternative rock anthem and transform it into something he call his own. “Swing Swing” has been given new life with this Synthwave version and will surely lead to a continuing avenue of creativity for the rising star.
French Pop electro band MD One has released its second single “Bombe A” on Jan. 29 from their upcoming debut album “Twelve Stars” coming out 2021. The song is uplifting in its lyrics and free flowing in its sonic rhythms. Check out the music video below:
The opening guitar is lonesome and thoughtful but quickly leads into a head bobbing and foot tapping beat. Vocalist David Granger’s message of finding chemistry with someone else and lighting up desire is elating in nature and enhances the sentiments of the song, activating both the mind and the body of the listener. The synthesizers at the midway point transform the track into a dance rock experience and showcase the abilities of composer Marc Vindret, known as the alchemist of sounds. Many instruments are layered onto each other and are well balanced to provide a nice crescendo into the final verses of “sweet desire” and “feeding the fire.” The overall song is radio friendly yet offers the profound meaning usually found within deep cuts. “Bombe A” offers a true feeling of euphoria felt in every bone of the body and is a required listen for those looking for something modern and stylish.
MD One has created a sound of their own, taking inspiration from many different locations and we can’t wait to see where they’ll end up next. To find out more on MD One, check them out on Facebook, YouTube, Instagram, and their official site.
