Anthony Casuccio - 'What Is the Point'

Set your dials back to the 1980s because you are going on a nostalgic trip back in time with this song! It's a way-back machine that has everything to give you the sentimentality of retro pop. The classic electronic beats with shimmering percussion establish the pace of the rhythm. Synthesizers and guitars build most of the dynamics, balancing the melody and harmony of the song. Energy is always high and upbeat keeping the music engaging and curious. With some great relatable lyricism here, you also get to sink into some sick guitar licks and riffs followed by a very short and sweet solo as a filler. Along with the emotive aspect, this song is instantly appealing and memorable keeping it as fresh as it was first heard.

Moving towards the main ingredient of this song, the vocals. What Anthony Casuccio has is a voice that can be defined as purely mellifluous. The throw of words and notes to create an impact requires experience which Anthony has in abundance. The overflow of talent can be seen through not just in vocals but through the entire production of this easy-to-follow and sing-along song.

About Nonstop To Cairo
Nonstop to Cairo is proud to present the video for “Awkward Situations”, the second single from their forthcoming release, “KAI”.

"“Awkward Situations” is an upbeat punk explosion that, true to form, also dabbles heavily into their signature hip hop and funk vibe. A certain soon-to-be crowd pleaser and welcome addition to their arsenal of anthems, “Awkward Situations” is a perfect showcase of the band’s serious skills.

Five years after their debut full-length “Dabble Heavy”, Nonstop To Cairo return with their sophomore offering “KAI”, which once again showcases the Long Island outfit’s irresistible blend of rock, rap, ska, funk, and punk. After years of tearing the roof off of joints with their electrifying live show, KAI captures Nonstop To Cairo’s irrepressible onstage energy while also adding a touch of polish, resulting in a listening experience that’s as inviting as it is invigorating. And, as KAI’s glorious eruption of sound shows, the band has grown ever more fluent in its melange of styles.

Nonstop To Cairo - 'Awkward Situations'
This time, Nonstop To Cairo ease their way from bracing punk (album opener “Awkward Situations”) to smooth-sailing reggae (“Throw It Away”) to jazz-inflected funk (“Pope Funk”) to classic rock (“Hand of Fate”), to heartfelt, blues balladry driven by horns and organ (“Not Today”), etc. Where hairpin turns from one genre to the next were once part of the thrill, the band now glides with agility and grace, as if all of its influences have finally gelled into a seamless whole and a signature style that it can claim as its own...

Looking back, it’s funny to think that Nonstop To Cairo frontman August Harris never envisioned himself playing in a band. When he left the house on his skateboard one day in the early 2000s, his intention was simply to scope out the neighbourhood his family had just moved to after relocating from Brooklyn to Long Island. Just a block and a half from home, he turned into a cul de sac, where he saw a group of skateboarders congregating in front of a house. Unsurprisingly, that group of skater kids turned out to be his adoptive group of friends. Unbeknownst to Harris, however, his future musical partner, guitarist Nick Diamond was inside the house.

Nonstop To Cairo
In so many respects, KAI is a document of the deep, abiding bond that persists not only between Diamond and Harris but between everyone who’s ever played in the band. Theirs is a story forged on Long Island’s quintessentially suburban lanes and set to a ‘90s soundtrack—an ode, above all, to friendship and survival. Trumpet player/keyboardist Kevin Anand Itwaru, whose initials make up the album title, died tragically just before KAI was recorded; and while the music is deepened by the band’s grief, it has by no means lost its penchant for celebration.

In fact, to listen to Harris and Diamond look back on the music of their youth, one gets a sense of warm nostalgia not unlike what American Graffiti communicated to an entire generation fifty years ago—yes, KAI has the power and reach to speak to that wide of an audience. In the best sense of the term, Nonstop To Cairo makes music that’s built to belong to everyone."

Invisiblespider - 'Circles'

Listening to 'Circles', you will understand how greatly admirable the concept is. Right from the beginning, the synth fades in with the soothing voice of Jian Wei. The lyrical dominion in this song along with the well-composed blend of electronic and pop styles really makes it a unique journey. This song is seven minutes long and never ever fails to provide thoughtful insight into the artist's mind and experiences. Its deep meaning has a high emotional connection, expressing feelings of a painful reality that the artist wants to convey. It bends more towards a poetic format and represents the profundity of emotions. What also makes this song stand out is its implementation of music that amazingly supports melodic and harmonic vocals.

The creativity of using the breath as a sound to support the rhythm is really a clever way to symbolize the song's intention. The guitar and bass are prominent alongside the rhythm led by a tight beat. With a heartbreaking narrative, this track quickly becomes an exploration of existence from a pragmatic as well as philosophical aspect. A real experience of oppression can be felt along with the desperation to break free from it. Music like this genuinely comes from the heart of a mindful songwriter like Oh Jian Wei.

About Hello Fiasco:

"In the years leading up to 2021, former members of The Mailman's Children joined forces with other Canadian artists to record 23 original songs. At the top of 2021, the new Pop Rock band emerged publicly as Hello Fiasco. Although Hello Fiasco is principally Canadian, the band is considered “North American” because their frontman Eric LaBossiere (born Canadian) lives in Helena, Montana, USA. The rest of the band, including Joel Couture (bass), Joel Perreault (lead guitars/backing vocals), Ivan Burke (drums/backing vocals), and Guy Abraham (keys/Ableton/backing vocals), all live in the Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA region. Hello Fiasco has been compared to Panic! At The Disco, Fall Out Boy, The Killers, Franz Ferdinand and David Bowie, though listeners have also said that HF definitely has a sound and strength of their own. This only makes sense since the band prides itself on coming from the side of Pop Rock where the quality of lyrics, music and originality all still stand for something."

Rule By Fear - 'No Good Deed (Long Time Dead)'

The true raw, rough and tough sound of rock music is brought to life by Rule By Fear.

Definitely listen to 'Anton' by Chris Sunfield on Spotify.

Watch official video of 'Anton' by Chris Sunfield.

About Chris Sunfield:

"Anton is perhaps the first pop song written about the classical composer Anton Bruckner. The music came to Sunfield in a dream at 4am in the dead of winter on the third day of a migraine headache. Half-falling out of bed, and delirious from pain and sleep deprivation, he dragged himself to the keyboard in the dark to get the music down. The song is very personal for Sunfield, as his life parallels Bruckner's in some ways – an older guy trying to break into the music scene late in life, but also realizing that achievement is often gained at the expense of intimacy. Anton was the first song that Sunfield scored for piano and string quartet. The music also came to him in the dream in D flat major, a key that he had never used before. It wasn’t until after Anton was recorded that he realized that his favourite Bruckner piece was in the same key."

Filled with baroque and symphonic pop stylings, “Far Away Objects” is an existential and cosmological journey and a clarion call to listeners to live authentically and realize their full potential before it’s too late.

With nearly 50,000 plays on Spotify for his debut singles “Don’t Kill Me” and “Predator”, standout songwriter/vocalist and multi-instrumentalist Chris Sunfield is well on the way to becoming a household name. 

Chris Sunfield is a new artist, but not so new. He quietly wrote songs for decades while doing something else for a living. A period of adversity changed everything. It forced him to focus on music as a coping method and led to his unexpected re-invention as a recording artist. Chris writes all lyrics, music, and arrangements for other instruments. He sings vocals, plays all guitars, and sometimes plays bass and keyboards.

Chris Sunfield
Chris recorded his first songs in high school. He was accepted into a university music program despite not knowing how to read music. He struggled and soon switched majors, eventually receiving a PhD in psychology and ending up as a consultant.

Years passed. He was comfortable but regretful. Hundreds of half-written songs languished on fading scraps of paper and deteriorating tapes. If he had died suddenly, that big box of music would have ended up in a landfill. Then came a perfect storm. Close friends died. Career missteps. A move to a remote area isolated him from friends. And finally, an accident hospitalised him. It felt like rock bottom. He was a behavioural scientist facing his own dark night of the soul.

Still, on crutches, he dug out all of his music gear and wrote his first completed song in years as a way of coping. It re-awakened him as an artist. He sold his house, moved back to the city, and began working with producers. Eventually, the singles The Little Things, Predator, and Don’t Kill Me were released." Now, the story continues.

Brutu Music ft. WWW & Lindoras - 'Mr. Dickerson'

Brutu music brings you this humorous composition that everyone can relate to. This song will remind you of that one friend you had, who borrowed your money and vanished with no clues. The whole context is performed in a comical way without being too serious. The music fits perfectly for such a lighthearted theme and with amusing lyricism. You get the witty experience with the cool and stylized party beats and auto-tuned vocals. The electronic instrumentals accentuate the dynamic sound that the artist wants to deliver. The hook is a banger which simply becomes a catchy chorus in between the sick rap sections. The mix creates an enjoyable and addictive experience.

You can crazily dance to this as well as appreciate the rap skills performed throughout the course. Even the artists are having a great time crafting this artwork. The rhythm is consistent and impactful, and the tune is strangely attractive, quirky and will get stuck in your head for a long time! Overall, the production sounds pretty professional. See, music doesn't have to be extremely complicated and emotionally deep or sensitive all the time. It can be simple and entertaining with some clever ingredients just like this song has. So relax, turn up your speakers and enjoy this one crazy ride! By the way, make sure you keep an eye on such friends!

Hoodie Rob - 'No Stress' & 'Perky In My Fiji'

'No Stress' leaves no space for higher expectations as it already surpasses your feeling of anticipation. The soothing melody emerges from the corners of the reverberating spaces setting up the chord progression of this song. Rhythm gets into the light with a heavy kick and standard snare and hi-hats that strongly binds up the beat. Filled with emotional aspects, you can feel every word and every note consistently hard-hitting. The switch of the pitch will have a separate fanbase. From the bottom of Hoodie's heart, he wishes to bring the power to oppose the norms of society by living life on his own terms, avoiding the safe game and having freedom and flexibility to do what matters most to him.

Absolutely relatable to many of you! 'Perky In My Fiji' featuring Roman6ixV3 continues the ambience and thoughtfulness created by 'No Stress' but with a carefree vibe. The collab brings a unique interpretation of their sounds that blends to form a fascinating performance of vocals and music.

About Hoodie Rob

"The New York-bred artist seeks to leave an everlasting impact on his audience, as his music evokes raw emotions. Through every release, Hoodie Rob Uzumaki seeks to connect with listeners on a personal level that will help them connect to his music. Inspired by his life experiences, Hoodie Rob is creating his artistic lane as his sound crosses the genre divide to create a unique, distinctive emo-rap sound that differentiates him from many in the scene. Garnering over a million streams in the last year, Hoodie Rob Uzumaki is set to leave his footprint on the scene.

Hoodie Rob - 'No Stress', 'Perky In My Fiji'

After exploding on the scene with “Misa Misa”, garnering almost a million and a half streams on Spotify, and then cementing his place along the alternative emo-rap timeline on follow-ups “Ain’t the Same”, “What Do You Mean” and “Teardrops (2010)”, gifted NYC based indie artist Hoodie Rob presents “No Stress” and “Perky in My Fiji”, a double shot of good times.

“Chaos and nostalgia. Listening to "No Stress" is like having a devil on each shoulder while trying to navigate the most lawless rave you've ever been to. The song represents losing all control and entering a world where you're guided by your vices with no rules or restrictions. As we get older, we’re told more and more things to fit into society. What if I don’t want to? What if I want to be a chaotic trainwreck for my whole life? Chaos does often come with an apocalyptic sense of excitement. I made this song because people wouldn’t stop telling me what to do with my life, and this was my protest. If I want to go out for the entire week, I’m gonna do that. If I want to do it, I’m gonna do it”

The production from Miroow matches the vocal energy perfectly, giving the song a sense of nostalgia and a peek into the unknown at the same time. The synth gives the song a raw, ominous feeling, and invokes the listener to tap into their own unfiltered emotions, specifically the urges that we're conditioned to ignore, and the personas we've been told to subdue. 

Perky in my Fiji (feat. Roman6ixV3) is like leaving the same rave to cruise down Hollywood Drive for a smoke before heading back in. Roman6ixV3 has evolved into an Atlanta cloud-rap superstar, and we found a perfect synergy between our sounds with this one. This song plays the same theme as No Stress with a lighthearted twist and is the perfect song to vibe to this summer, next summer, and definitely the next party. This is our first collaboration to be released after a couple years of working together.

With wide-ranging stylistic and musical influences, and a nod to his contemporaries like The Kid Laroi, 93feetofsmoke, Convolk and Anxiety Attacks, Hoodie Rob Uzumaki is the newest name in the music scene - poised to leave a lasting impact. Immersed in music from a young age, Hoodie Rob became fascinated with hip-hop and punk rock. Since then he has cultivated his talents to what they are today. The artist, producer, singer, and songwriter radiates a versatile style that encapsulates both of those genres."
