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.
This month brings a new song from Alex Genadinik in the form of an introspective interpretation of a romantic Russian song. The result is “Love Letters in the Clouds,” a track that speaks directly to your soul and makes you long for happier days. Check out the song below:
The finger picking acoustic guitar sets the tone for a somber story, but soon the orchestral backdrop swoops in to lift the words into the clouds, very much like the lyrics, which were rewritten to fit a newer audience and a modern musical landscape. Close your eyes and listen to the soft voice and sounds as they take you on a journey through open fields of wonder and curiosity.
The ending of the song is sad since the connection between the two lovers in the story ends as time passes and they grow too old to communicate. Because of the meaning behind the song, it makes the listener reflect on their own short time on this earth and reminds us all not to waste any of it, especially if it is between two lovers such as these. Taken as a whole, the song is highly recommended for anyone looking to reconnect, especially in the romantic month of February.
Patrick van Zandwijk, aka TuskHead, is set to release his new song “Blue” coming out on Feb. 5. The singer-songwriter is known for blending together genres such as folk, country and bluegrass in a way that keeps the down to roots spirit of those genres while enliven it with his own signature style. “Blue” is another example of what makes TuskHead stand out above the rest.
Piano and fingerpicked guitars start off the track along with a thumping beat, giving off a sense of calm before the oncoming storm. TuskHead has a very clear and determined voice, serene yet robust, allowing the listener to feel tranquil and mighty at the same time. The song has a buildup of rollicking drums that elevate the track from a traditional Country-inspired tune into a full on anthem, with contemporary production to match up with the popular tracks of our day.
The touching verses and catchy chorus are seized by several powerful guitar solos. “Blue” makes you want to march forward with pride and grab life by the horns. Head bobbing melodies and foot stomping rhythms solidify TuskHead’s latest effort as a keeper in our favorite up-and-coming artist’s playlist.
We hope you are as excited to hear the new song as we were listening to it. To learn more about TuskHead, follow him on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, YouTube and check out his website here. To pre-save “Blue” on Spotify, click the button below.
Heartache, loneliness, and longing are some of the emotions you will feel after listening to Alex Genadinik’s cover of “Blue Trolley,” a title translated to English. The song was originally by Russian poet and musician Bulat Okudzhava, who was known for subtly challenging Soviet cultural authorities.
Alex’s interpretation of the song is somber yet hopeful, as the lyrics tell the story of a night train traveling through the city as a ship at sea. The main theme of the song is that the company of strangers can help during the journey home, even if no one is talking to each other because of the ability of strangers to bond together. The song ends with the rocking train easing the pain, a delightful outlook to a soul’s troubled past.
The overall performance is a great combination of song choice, musicianship, and storytelling through unique lyrics. The choice of song by Alex allows a new, diverse audience from different backgrounds to hear a Russian song, allowing them to become interested in a new culture. The vocal delivery by Alex is soft and delicate but with driving purpose, and the instrumentation is clear and subtle, with light acoustic guitar overdubbed with a strumming pattern in the later half. A recommended listen for anyone!
Alex Genadinik has released a new love song in anticipation of Valentine’s Day titled “Oh Michaelangelo.” The song is inspired by the painting of the Sistine Chapel and features compelling lyrics full of immense feelings.
The song is a soft ballad with a delightful piano performance that pairs well with Alex’s voice. The delivery of the poetic and metaphorical lyrics is what takes this song to the next level, along with the drums that elevate the emotion of the track. The lyrics mix the idea of a historical painting with the universal theme of love in a way that is not commonly seen, resulting in an interesting hybrid that makes this song stand out from the rest. The closing verse really ties the song together as a new painting is created in this couple’s image.
