Rockidle - 'Change'

Releasing on 25th May 2022, Rockidle brings you this delightfully composed and thoughtfully written song. Its bright and catchy melody ticks all the boxes of a soulful musical journey with a proficient performance. The song reflects upon the political fatigue and a possible dystopic future of the United Kingdom. The way it is written and smoothly arranged on a blend of a variety of instrumentals is intriguing and highly engaging. Crunchy guitars and emphatic drums are thunderous and consistently provide an impactful rhythmic and tonal balance. Already a punchy and thick track, it also has multicoloured vibrant dynamics that deliver a range of frequencies enfolding an immense depth of emotion. Piano and strings have a special place that makes this song more harmonious adding an additional layer of warmth, and uplifting its meaning. As outstanding as the music is, the larger-than-life vocals take the energy of this song to the next level. The voice has a vitality which gets flawlessly highlighted through its style, harmonies and uniform energy. The firey and gritty energy encourages the force that will drive you to listen to this exceptional song. 'Change' possesses shades of multiple genres including effective elements from each of them especially holding a great influence from the Rock and Britpop genres.

“Songs are stories, they should have a start, middle, and end, have content and mean something. Like children, they (songs) are born with some chords on an acoustic guitar, lyrics, and an idea of how you want them to sound. Hopefully, some of them grow up, develop, flourish and leave home. The time has now come for these songs to sink or swim”.

Akaleshnus - 'Flesh'

Akaleshnus - 'Flesh'

'Flesh' is simply a great sounding track that has a variety of instrumentals expressing the religious sentiment of the artist. The strength in lyricism and composition surely comes from a creative and thoughtful mindset. The hard-hitting music has powerful beats and complements electronic tone blending with heavy guitars and strings. The influence of this song is immense with its unique style and force. A punchy and tight mix of musical elements brings out the charge and vigour along with the feeling of determination to deliver a message to the listeners. Everything from start to end sounds tough and sturdy with a vocal performance being at its peak. The vocals are fabulous and energetic, having a vibrant tone that represents the artist's passion and determination.

A word from Akaleshnus: 

"I am a disciple of Christ who works to live according to the following Scriptures: "Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like, unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets." Matthew 22:37-40. The artistry with which God has graciously provided us is a weapon to be used against the devil in our fulfilment of the Lord's Great Commission with which He has tasked us: "And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in the earth. Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen." Matthew 28:18-20. It is my prayer that all of you who bless us with your support forsake evil and follow Christ in this mission that He has given us to strengthen His Church. I pray this over you in the Name of Jesus Christ, Amen."

Reap the Light - 'Victory Is Near'

Reap the Light has nailed a powerful performance in this song. Starting straight on point with heavy guitar tones and break-neck rhythm, we're in for a crazy ride. The heat of the music takes over you like wildfire. The consistent high energy of this track drives emotions to the fullest. The headbanging, hard-hitting drums crank up the beats, blowing life into the uniform flow of perfectly executed tempo. The pumping fat mix is deeply tied to the traditions of the heavy metal/rock genre. Massive and crunchy guitars are also accompanied by a thick bass growling along with all the highly amplified musical elements. This rich and hardcore song goes through various patterns and variations leading to its ultimate intensity. Overall, the music is dense and saturated, retaining its tightness together without distractions and complete involvement of skills fueled by passion. Just like any virtuosic music, the impact of voice in this song makes it stand out due to the remarkable qualities it possesses. The rasps and the screams flawlessly represent the aggression in the vocals alongside fine melodic harmonies. In fact, this song has achieved the perfect balance between the gritty and the sonorous nature in its composition. Equally emphatically lyrical, this band has already grabbed the flag of victory with their classic, extreme and dynamic rendition.

Chris St John - 'Fly Away'

Chris St John - 'Fly Away'

Fly Away is the title track on Chris St John's forthcoming album Fly Away. A song that brings tears of joy through its poetic lyricism and soulful composition. A song that represents the strongest bond between Chris and his son who is about to live life on his own. Chris is remembering the precious time watching his child grow up and move towards independence. With this powerful song, we get a melodic and heartfelt voice, being the messenger of Chris's heart to his son. This heavily emotional and soothing song is powerful and consistently energetic. It builds a sentimental vibe through its composition that includes guitars, violins, tight drums and excellent bass. The solo part shared between organ and electric guitar landing on the bridge section is fantastic. A wonderful song, completely relatable to all those parents who see their children 'Fly Away' to build their own future and achieve dreams.

Definitely listen to 'Fly Away' by Chris St John on Spotify.

About Chris St John:

"Chris St John has been on a roll these last two years, having written dozens of songs which have appeared on two separate albums.  His first album, I’m Dreaming, which was released in 2021, gained critical acclaim and commercial success.  The album had four chart-toppers on the World Indie Music Charts and the Official European Independent Music Chart, including “I Called You Rose,” which climbed all the way to No. 3.

Recently, Chris was in Nashville, working with legendary producer Stephen Wrench, as well as some of the finest session musicians in Music City, to record his upcoming album Fly Away.  During the production of the album, Chris released the song “Hey Siri,” which quickly hit No. 1 on the World Indie and Official European Independent Music charts and remained there for five weeks. “Hey Siri” has a playful, rolling African groove reminiscent of Paul Simon’s Graceland.  This clever, lively, and thought-provoking song focuses on the drawbacks of modern technology.  Stylistically, it’s an outlier of sorts, scratching only the surface of the deep and impactful artistry Chris showcases over the course of 13 tracks.  The diversity of the songs makes it very hard to fit Chris’ music into any one genre. His voice is velvety and clear on the album’s ballads, and heartfelt and rocking on the up-tempo songs.  His tenor voice has remarkable range and clarity, and his different vocal stylings on each track make it hard to believe it’s the same singer throughout the album."

Chris St John - 'Fly Away'

"Fly Away is set to soar.  The title track is a soulful, poetic, and powerful song about the birth of his son, John, and the times Chris spent with him from childhood through his recent graduation from high school.  He wrote the song as his son was preparing to head off to college. All parents whose children have left the nest can relate to Chris’ heartfelt lyrics: “I just held you I cannot believe it/You’re heading off to live on your own/A million hours, tears joy laughter/I treasured it all, the best years I’ve known…”

The song is set for release on February 25, 2022, his son’s birthday.
