Zflipa ‘Another Bunch’ – Review

Music, News

Following his previous success with the single ‘Flavours’. A drill reimagining of Justin Timberlake’s Rock Your Body, up and coming rap star Zflipa is back with his enticing new offering ‘Another Bunch’.

The track sees Zflipa take on the power and command of a young London Pablo Escobar as he plays a drug dealer over a day of their life. With a London-setting and iconography of new-wave UK rap.

The song’s catchy instrumentation paired with Zfipa’s hard hitting bars make for a captivating listening experience. The innovative and smart way that Zflipa crafts his bars and puts his full energy into the delivery is a credit to his talent. 

The track is filled with clean and crisp production in the format of mystical and light bell melody on a deep bassline that pumps energy into the track like a heartbeat.

I for one am very excited to see where Zflipa goes next!

Alternative, Music, Rock, Singer-Songwriter

Singer, songwriter Davie Furey is here with his new Celtic themed anthem ‘History’. His latest single serves as a powerful and poignant boost and stirs a sense of courage and morale in anyone listening to it.

Boasting sharp and acute lyricism and inventive instrumentals, he’s not letting anything slow him down and this latest single serves as a battlecry for this message.

Aria ‘The Next Life’ – Review

Experimental, Music

Composer Aria is here with latest single ‘The Next Life’ released in celebration of Earth Day. 

The single, is an accurate account of the current times and loosely bases itself on the current situation around the world with regards to environmental issues. 

Right off the bat, the track sounds mesmerizingly powerful. It has a way of drawing you in until suddenly you find yourself lost in the music. At about forty seconds in, rapper R Reed’s voice hypnotizes the listeners and whisks them into an inspiring tale.  

Although the track contains an eerie insight into the current times, anybody listening will be struggling not to be whisked away on a hazy daydream.  The newly released song offers a reality check with its sobering undertones.  

At times, it sounds as if the music and lyrics are pitted against each other. On the one hand, the music offers a sense of relaxation whereas the lyrics reiterate the important issues that Aria is so passionate about bringing awareness to.

Check out ‘The Next Life’ by Aria below.

Tony Goff & The Broken Colours ‘Mirrors’ – Review

Indie, Music, New Bands

Tony Goff & The Broken Colours is a fresh lick of paint to rock and roll as we know it. The band have developed a distinctive charm, which will no doubt play a huge part in this new single ‘Mirrors’. In many ways, this will be a coming of age record – firmly setting the tone of who they are not only through reflection, but pointing towards the future.

Latest single ‘Mirrors’ sees Tony Goff & The Broken Colours draw on inspirations from indie legends such as The Kooks, Arctic Monkeys and Sam Fender, exploring difficulties of self identification while serving a straight up indie bop. The band certainly takes that pop rock element in their stride, creating something that is comfortingly familiar, while absolutely their own.

Speaking of this latest release Tony stated: The Current album being written and the singles from it, relate to Tony Goff’s personal struggles and challenges,  but written in an uplifting way as almost to remind Tony of what he has to do.  

However, Tony Goff & The Broken Colours in this track adds a different dimension. With a sprightly melody, bustling rhythm and vibrant vocals, the tone shifts more to accepting oneself rather than dwelling in discomfort. This results in something that is not only brutally honest, but catchy and fun – a hit that is both validating and full of hope.

No Limit To InHibit: Alt Rock Artist Releases New Single, The Quest.

Alternative, Experimental, Rock, Singer-Songwriter

When you first lay eyes on this very abstract and insightful music video by the ever-challenging artist Inhibit, you are faced with a black screen that fades into a face full of scars. A frightening thought, right?

Describing himself primarily as a poet, Inhibit has studied the piano since he was five years old. Based in Brussels, the 21-year-old boasts an unusual background as a former racing driver and qualified lawyer – highly retrospective of his peculiar and unpredictable style of music.

Plastered with scars on his face and his back, ‘The Quest’ depicts Inhibit as a complete outsider who walks around a city wearing a mask though, upon revelation of his true face, everyone he approaches turns and runs in disgust.

Hurtling towards 400,000 YouTube views in less than one month, ‘The Quest’ sees InHibit examining the hypocritical reactions of those around him to his real persona, when how he is treated when not hidden behind a mask.

Watch the Eye-Popping Video to The Quest here: 

Composed by the artist himself and featuring his keyboard and vocal skills, the video too was his own creation, featuring his own scarification designs and storyboard. His first book is to be released shortly, as well as a collection of his poetry.

Tod Almond releases tantalising tease track in step towards new album

Music, Rock

On September 4th, Tod Almond releases his latest single, ‘Start Again’ in a bid to tease us of the release of his debut album ‘If Only You Could See’ which is set to drop on 2nd October. This is a hugely welcome return to his classic rock song-writing and guitar prowess.

Almond is based in Huntingdon, Cambridgeshire and has stuck true to the maxim, “do what makes you happy!” Teaching himself guitar as a teenager, he became hugely attached to his first acoustic guitar, then moving on to electric guitar, bass and drums – developing and understanding of each instrument intuitively and learning by ear.

“My children keep asking me, ‘When will you be on Spotify?’ I said, ‘It won’t be long. They just want me to be something. I really want them to hear, see and feel my happiness”

Tod almond

The single is a true, raw, down to Earth example of a classic rock tune – filled with searing solo’s and hard-rock hooks, you will be drawn to listen again and again.

Make sure to follow Tod on social media to be the first to hear about the release of ‘Start Again’ on September 4th and album ‘If Only You Could See Me’ on October 2nd.
