07 April 2017
Every week, Music News and Liberty Music look at the best new releases from emerging and self-releasing artists.
This week we have singles from some of the best upcoming artists in soul-pop and indie-rock.
Empathy Test – Bare My Soul
Empathy Test have hit the nail on the end with their latest single ‘Bare My Soul’ that compliments their brooding, cinematic sound. Compact with warm analogue synthesizers, combined with a staggered drumbeat and rolling toms, drive the track to a dazzling, euphoric chorus.
Tilda Allie – Further Than You
Tilda blends both characteristic vocal harmonies and intrinsic songwriting in her latest single ‘Further Than You’. Styled with rich synth arpeggios and rich jazz chords, a range of influences fly in her dynamical output. 'Further Than You' is about seeing the good in the bad. It teaches how to accept being alone and how to truly enjoy it, that you are powerful in your vulnerability.
emaé – Better
‘Better’ is a personal song, which showcases her honest, life-weathered songwriting. A powerful and raw emotion captured in her vocal performance showing us just one side of the artistry to be expected in her upcoming album.
IDER – Does She Even Know
Electronic-pop duo IDER released their latest EP ‘Gut Me Like An Animal’. One excerpt from this is ‘Does She Even Know’ a track that features Shura at the helm of the delicate production. Built with abstract verses and a re-appearing chorus that feels so welcoming and warm. Get your mittens around this earworm.
Mowbeck – The Basement
Nottingham rock outfit Mowbeck are back with their newest single ‘The Basement’ following up their debut EP ‘Talkabout’. Bodied with dueling guitar melodies and 80’s revival-like synthesizers, the track is an instant head-nodder.
