Although with only a few songs around it is little surprise Fenne Lily is establishing a rapidly burgeoning audience.

A haunting vocal is matched by equally spectral instrumentation with the listener pondering how it was that the gossamer threading compositions managed to not break on the way out of the speakers. It is the finely woven intricacy of lacework that affords Fenne Lily the commanding presence which transfixes the audience as they come across the music.

The most recent track to surface – What’s Good – has a poise that captivates the mind due entirely to the delicate filaments of architecture.

Less than twelve hours ago the latest track – The Waters – bubbled to the surface. An approaching four and a third minutes song that builds intensity and volume through its duration, prior to curling in to silence.

The listener is minded of Macbeth, Act IV, Scene I.  by William Shakespeare and the older source Scottish mythology of the Wayward Sisters as the stewing brew of The Waters hoves through the speakers in a cauldron of intoxicating thread of transfixing vocal, thrubbing bass, cloaked percussion and bleeding bows in which the listener becomes bewitched, to a state of enlightened topographagnosia.

The News – Young – Single Review

Music is often about timing and the US nu-disco duo The News with the track Young, released within the past four hours, hits the sweet-spot.

The News - Young

The News

Warm enough to begin a Friday dusk with gentle flow, without already closing down Monday morning dawn – Young evokes of a coming forty eight hours of stress free promise, whilst not getting ahead of itself and over assuring.

Subtle brushes of synthetics sweep the room in gentle embrace whilst layered vocals caution of impulsive reaction, without overbearing the listener, as within the hush of the just under three minutes composition is a temptation of tenderness and connection, tempering any remaining solipsism in the audience whilst ascribing of mutual respect and consideration.

For the newest music from around the world – Emerging Indie Bands on Twitter is not a bad place to start.

Bad Wave – 1955 – Single Review

Bad Wave are an indie-synth duo from the USA.

Combining drifting melodies with a critical view of the imbalances of society Bad Wave are able to deliver music which is both lyrically perspicacious and aurally engrossing with the listener having the feeling they have unbeknownst partaken in a lustrate experience.

1955, that was revealed earlier in the month, deploys retrospective contemplation inside a late ’10s sentiment to deliver a song which gently drifts around the room as the hushed composition unfolds with the harmonics lingering long after the track has faded away in to silence.

I look forward to hearing more of Bad Wave in short order.

All that made 2 Tone Records such a great label back in the ’70s and  ’80s is contained within the just over three and a half minutes of Lazy Susan.

Underpinning the track is a soul reference point from which the dance steps evolve and the listeners finds themselves swaying across the room in unfettered abandon as trombone, trumpet, synths, bass, guitar and a plethora of vocals skip through the ears in a fusion of inclusiveness, which in 2017 is a sorely lacking commodity.

Allow yourself some space – stand up – turn up the volume – then hit play – and dance.
