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.
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.
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.
