NPR gives an in-depth look at the track and says, "Abraha's inspirations range from Missy Elliott to Corinne Bailey Rae for, as she puts it, 'their unique approach and unwillingness to stray from their truth.' The singer employs the same sense of fearlessness with this single. These dark hues and knowing vocals of 'Do's and Dont's' serve as the foundation for the artist's forthcoming sophomore EP, due out later this year, and will help to settle the dust of a dizzied subconscious with each replay."
Atwood Magazine says, "Deanna Devore's hypnotic 'Seven Eight' is a somber, heavy-hearted reckoning of an ill-fated relationship layered in moving R&B melodies and warm vibes...Glowing keyboards, mellow guitars, and seductive electronics create a hazy soundscape full of space - lyricless moments for us to engage in our own poignant reflection."
Colin Magalong hit us with a new bop and it'll be on repeat all summer long. New single "Bodies In A Room," is packed with incredible sonic elements and an undeniable swag that'll get you out on the dance floor.
Indie Shuffle says, "Reminding me of Daft Punk at their climactic best, 'Bodies In a Room' is a disco-infused pop record with Magalong's lively vocals giving it an added touch of class."
Lastly, Cautious Clay's highly anticipated EP, Blood Type, dropped this Wednesday and is already turning heads. The eponymously titled single, "Blood Type," is featured on Spotify's New Music Friday, and is bound to make waves.
Shiffley's "Cut Out My Heart" is a small taste of what this album has to offer. Paper Cranes has a killer energy that perfectly blends 90's electro-pop and 80's percussive mastery, and is the perfect addition to your "Driving down to the beach because it's 70 degrees in February" Playlist.
Payton Odom bring us his new single "Conventional Wisdom" off his forthcoming EP. With musings on heartbreak woven over vintage guitar, warm horns and driving piano, Odom's track finds a groove to it that is often lost in most contemporary music. Taking it back to simple production, intoxicating vocals, and soul-quenching lyrics, "Conventional Wisdom" is Odom's mark on the world - and quite a mark it is.
We fell in love with Cautious Clay's debut single "Cold War" and now it's back with a fresh remix from IAMNOBODI.
Staying true to Cautious Clay's sound, IAMNOBODI's remix incorporates a darker and heavier R&B influence. Raspy vocals lure you in and a perfectly laid soundscape keeps you hooked.
The Fader says, "It's a lonely soul song that's only the more cutting when the beat hits hard."
The 405 says, "With so much emerging electronic pop music out there, how do you even begin to sift through it all?...Enter FYOHNA...Sonically, the composition pushes and pulls with a standard swagger. There's obvious influence from R&B and even an underlying bedroom pop/ DIY feeling, providing the track a sense of intimacy the lyrics deserve."
Be sure to stay up to date with FYOHNA. This duo are on the brink of greatness.
