Jade Moss brings the world of retro glamour to the masses with her upcoming single ‘Only U’

Alt-Pop, Alternative, female singer, Music News, New Music, New Release, pop, R&B, Retro

Dropping May 14th, ‘Only U’ is a beautiful collection of retro pop and contemporary R&B nuances all tied together with Jade Moss’ smooth vocal performance. Moss, whose brand is nostalgic charm topped up with a distinct style and sense of self, croons through the tale of a female character fighting against the waves of love at first sight whilst creating a rich, charismatic track.

The track, taken from Moss’ upcoming debut EP, is sleek and sophisticated from the word go. With a real Amy Winehouse-Esq feel, the song is full of addictive harmonies that highlight Moss’ voice perfectly without overshadowing it and an upbeat instrumental with a level of class present throughout. ‘Only U’ never feels aged; it utilises retro styling in a way that keeps it grounded in a modern setting, avoiding over saturating the listener with overplayed cliches. The overall result is a soulful pop bop that fits Jade Moss to a ‘T’.

“The music that I write is about my experiences with love, joy, strength and the importance of self-worth”Jade Moss

‘Only U’ is Jade Moss in her element. The song is a showcase of her style and her ability to connect through her lyrics and voice, allowing Moss to give the nod to her influences (Etta James, Grace Jones and Lauren Hill) whilst simultaneously carving her own distinctive path in a musical landscape that seems to be missing a bit of retro glamour. Make sure to keep an eye (and ear) out for ‘Only U’ dropping May 14th.

Billie Eilish tugs at heart strings (and tear ducts) with latest single ‘Your Power’

Alt-Pop, Alternative, female singer, Music News, New Music, New Release, News, pop, Pop Music, Singer-Songwriter, Weird-Pop

In the week in which the 19-year-old announces her upcoming album title ‘Happier Than Ever’, Billie Eilish has dropped the single ‘Your Power’ (April 29th) which strips back the singer to the raw emotion listener’s were introduced to back in 2017 with her debut EP ‘dont smile at me’.

The track itself is a soft yet forceful call out to those who use their power to take advantage of others. Combining Eilish’s ethereal vocals with a delicate acoustic backing, the song does not shy away from directly confronting the situation with questions of “Will you only feel bad when they find out?“. 

Eilish again proves her talents as she creates an intimate space for listener’s to absorb her story without overwhelming them. The track has a melancholic beauty with a sobering grounding in reality, a style the singer has perfected over the years. Simple yet effective, ‘Your Power’ lives up to everything people expect from Eilish and is an incredible sign of what’s to come.

Alternative, Electronic, Soul

Innovator and musical maverick Ang Low has released an official video for his latest track Memories.

Ang Low is a leading light in the Alt-Soul scene, with electro infused tracks that push the boundary of genre and make music that is truly magic.

The visuals for moving track Memories are a stunning choreographed piece of art, showcasing Ang Low’s feverish creativity and imagination. He comments-

“Memories is about losing yourself, bringing yourself back to reality with memories. The things that we try to accomplish in life, the lives we lead, who we say we are is only just a memory in the end. Life sets us on fire and we have nothing but a great memory to keep us going.”

The video oozes quality and originality, an important element to Ang –

“In this industry of hot people doing the same things and looking the same I just wanted to be the oddball. Just wanted to be me. I had to learn the song backwards, walk and choreograph backwards.

We kept throwing out and building ideas until we came up with this. We practiced for 5 weeks getting our angles and shots right. We only did two takes.

We wanted one but the first take I threw my pants at the camera and it turned.. but we finished the take, did another and just combined the two which turned out to look awesome”. 

Weird, wonderful and alien, artist Ang Low is a true innovator to the Alt-Soul genre and an exciting talent breaking through the scene.

Memories is taken from Ang’s new album UP a masterpiece dedicated to oddballs and misfits across the globe. 

The world of Ang Low’s music is pure psychedelic magic. With some of the most intriguing visuals we’ve seen all year, Memories is set to make the electro soul high priest a brilliant success.
