The latest release, a one track plus one remix single, I’m screwed (available on bandcamp) discovers a different set of brushes heading to the canvass.
Whilst the distinctive voice is immediately recognisable there is a more rancorous perspective, that snaps through the room in a track that reflects of a world receding in to silos of isolation disregarding anything other being in a fortified bunker, which lays under a warm blanket of keys, acoustic guitar and kazoo.
Mahadev OK is an alt-rock creator from France and based in England.
There is an infectious inclusiveness in the songs created by Mahadev OK with their uplifting tempo that threads through the music, which draws deeply from the roots of the summer of love.
Predominately acoustic guitar led, semi-acoustic and full electric do come to the fore from time to time, allowing Mahadev OK to create music with a diversity of sounds, though always able to sprinkle sunlight through the room.
By way of an introduction to a musician I look forward to hearing more of in short order.

With a different set of paint-brushes to music previously featured with a more shimmered shading – Leave A Light On – once again showcases the emotionally expressive vocal which immediately captures attention and holds the listener engrossed in the track.
Avital Raz is a social-commentary-folk creator based in England.
Taking a scalpel to peel away the veneer of societal respectability Avital Raz uncovers the festering sores contained therein and exposing them to the full glare of the sun. Few areas escape the barbed wit and precision surgeons blade as Avital combines a strong sense of composition, acidic lyric and an equally appropriate vocal to deliver a perspective of the underbelly of society.
