In The Spotlight

Levina – “Danger”

Born in Bonn, but now London-based, this German singer and songwriter grew up in a household where a piano took pride of place. She’s studying Music Management at the London College of Music. Drawing inspiration from Avril Lavigne, Anastacia and Ella Fitzgerald, she forged a power-house sound. She went on to represent Germany at the Eurovision Song Contest in 2017 with the song “Perfect Life”.

Lyrically underlining the fact that society doesn’t seem to care about the world’s issues, unless it affects them personally, her new single focuses the attention on the actual problems we’re all facing. Starting off smooth and imposing with a shimmering synth and majestic vocals, the chorus adds a powerful pop-rock glaze. With bold guitars and bracing drums, this is an empowering anthem.

Muroki – “Simple Pleasures”

Born as Muroki Mbote Wa Githinji in Raglan, this Kenyan-New Zealand singer and songwriter started playing guitar at the age of 8. He started recording music aged 15, after forming the band Cloak Bay with Lennox Reynolds. In 2019 he joined the band Masaya as a bassist. Inspired by Frank Ocean, D’angelo and GoldLink, he debuted his solo jazz, funk, soul blended sound on “For Better Or Worse” in 2019.

Driven by a groovy bassline and an infectious beat, his uplifting new single is a chilled tune with added funk. Taken from his genre-spanning EP “Heading East”, it’s the laid-back instrumentation with refreshing electric guitar runs and a 90s funk vibe that conjures the feeling of a mellow summers day by the sea. And with his smooth and sultry vocals, this is a warm and soothing sonic pleasure.
