Bursting with lively sunshine and unbridled sonic fun, this is the new single by Canadian band Walk Off The Earth:
Originally from South Africa, this powerhouse singer and songwriter moved to London, UK aged 19 to study music. During her University years she was in several different bands, performing in local pubs, but eventually decided on a solo path. Inspired by bands such as Queen, The Pretty Reckless and Foo Fighters, she debuted her potent rock and blues sound and rich lyrics with “November Rain” in 2019.
Highlighting anxiety and feeling overwhelmed by emotions, she offers her new single as a sonic punching bag. Giving some fierce blues a raw rock edge, you’re instantly blasted with a vigorous beat and howling blues guitars, brightened by a mild tambourine. And with her commanding and tempestuous vocals riding the mighty melody, this rugged groove will hit you like a steamroller.
Returning with magical 80s synth-pop glitters, this is the new single by British soulstress Laura Mvula:
Comprising of two childhood friends, who’ve been making music as long as they can remember, this Canadian indie-pop duo grew up near Montreal. With Matthew Brouillet being the lead singer/drummer and Mark Hodges the lead guitarist/bassist, they started the band OneFortySeven in 2017 and debuted with “Let Me Go” in 2018. Changing names in 2020, they released their single “Summer Time”.
Narrating the relatable situation of seeing someone you like when walking into a bar or club and hoping they will acknowledge you, their new single has a cheerful bounce in its step. With a funky beat and groovy wah-wah guitars lighting up the dancefloor, it’s the sensuous, multi-layered vocals which add sexiness and style. Steamy and highly danceable, this hot jam is well worth the full 2 minutes 45.
