Hello Heartland – Trails
Hello Heartland consists of Gustav Berry, David Pärsson, Peter Svensson, and Martin Berry. We’d stated prior: “They swell in contemplations for ‘Altars’ with the best traditions of vibes afforded by artists like Eric Johnson, Chick Corea, and Christopher Cross. Expansive and detailed, a fleeting vibe can trigger the most wonderful of music. It’s a beautiful thing.” The good times keep on going as their latest album ‘Ridges’ keeps us attuned to the nature of things, through the lens of the band, vicariously building new worlds of interstellar waves of personal inklings. A breeze of contemplation exists.
Mind Enterprises – Monogamy
Mind Enterprises stated: ““I am a big fan of the Chemise song ‘She Can’t Love You’ and took inspiration from that idea of someone being unable to be monogamous. I made this bass driven dance floor tune, and in collaboration with Jack Barraclough we made the video reflecting the idea of a femme fatale, for whom one man will never be enough!” In love? Obsessed, is more like it. Andrea Tirone is Mind Enterprises and with vintage synthesizers and 80s beats, the project has created a sound which is somehow both forward thinking and nostalgic at the same time. Jack Barraclough said of his direction in the music video: “This is the fourth music video I’ve made with Andrea, alongside other content including dance tutorials and horoscope videos, all with recurring characters. This comes together into what should now be called the Mind Enterprises Expanded Universe. (MEEU)” explains Jack, “ With Monogamy we have bottled the Mind Enterprises aesthetic in purest form. This is partly thanks to the format – I shot the video on a Sony Trinicon 3000, a betamax camera from 1982”. Word to the max, yo.
Enamel Animal – Anymore
“After a 2 year hiatus, we’re back with ‘Anymore’, the first single to be taken from the forthcoming as-yet-untitled sophomore album.” Enamel Animal are an alternative rock band hailing from the windy shores of the River Mersey. “Heavy riffs, psychedelic undertones, pulsating rhythm and unique melodica” are brought to the fore and as they cross your path, they leave a mark of excitement and karma. The waves of infection, gloriously expansive and time-defying delivers with pent-up angst. Welcome back to the world of music Enamel Animal. Forged in a grade-II listed building in the summer of 2012, the band have gone through several phases and line-up changes, with founding members Phil, Ryan and Glen mainstays throughout. Joining them on guitar in 2019 is Jon, owner of Crosstown Studios and producer of the band’s 2017 debut album ‘Unfaith’.
moodring – madness
Brandon and Charli. The duo with the mostest. You have pop-tarts to toast? You do that yourself. If you want fab music, then you can call on moodring. Like the colors of the rainbow and the santities of the outer space that covers us in wholesome vigils, moodring’s single ‘madness’ relishes in the coping of emotions and self reflection. The warmth of the coldness, casts off in an inescapable righteousness of Charli’s vocals – bouncing off of the frames of the instruments that are pop, as well as alt-rock. But the message is the key, and when the lights of the flickering existence, fades in and out, call out her name – his name – so that the crushing world won’t totally dissolve your resolve to survive and then thrive.
SØLYS – Beyond the Sky (feat. Emilio Bonito)
“Beyond the Sky was a great opportunity to collaborate with Emilio,” said Michael Chambers (SØLYS). “Emilio’s melancholic guitar melody over the lush chords and crunchy drums really took this song in a new direction. It gave me a fresh perspective on the music I’m creating as SØLYS.” Lush guitar melodies take you away. What it might have been in your life. What you have accomplished so far. What has to be done for the ‘morrow. Countless yet-to-be projects on the list, feel so overwhelming. But a song like ‘Beyond The Sky’, you can take some minute to gather yourself and re-evaluate. Added Emilio Bonito: “Michael has been recording and producing my music since 2015. We work really well together; we’ve grown accustomed to sharing ideas freely. It was only a matter of time before we decided to work together on one of his SØLYS tracks. Our musical styles are different yet very complementary..” Michael Chambers launched his production career in the late 1990’s and continues to impress with seductive pieces that touch with delicate and poignant interludes.
