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

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. The stormy energy of this instrumental brings back the traditionally handcrafted composition with amplified guitars. The classic distorted tone with a definitive rhythmic pattern brings vitality to the track. Its speedy nature and vibrant frequencies portray the high intensity which plays a major role in building the ambience for you. Heavy kicks and snares will give you a head-banging experience with a robust touch. The performance of all instruments shows the true passion and dedication of the artist. The riff is rebellious and will remind you of old-school rock/metal music. The track also evolves and proceeds into a guitar solo that adds even more melody and variation. The solo is smooth and travels through notes seamlessly, representing the freedom and display of the power of the genre. The start and the end of the song are both unique. It has an immaculate blend of various expressions like rage or victory which can be clearly subjective but can be accurately felt throughout the song. The production has a nostalgia, reminding you that there is no golden rule that defines such a virtuosic yet melodious musical piece. This instrumental is creative and enjoyable in its own way with its impressive style.

About Rule By Fear:

"Rule By Fear is currently a solo studio project consisting of just founding member Danny Williams.
Influenced by 80's hard rock and metal, but also the movies of the same decade.

Not looking for a polished produced studio sound Danny more authentic tones along with traditional recording techniques that give a much less filtered and old-school feeling to his music."

Chris Sunfield - 'Anton'

Chris Sunfield - 'Anton'

A very captivating and elegant song that imbues you with peace through its priceless message. One can feel the emotional strength that lies under the power of forsaking everything to attain a dream. Such great lyricism also gives you an insight into Chris's life experience and perspective on life through his eyes. Musically, the song is gentle and progresses as the poetic words untie the bigger picture. It evolves from a piano to strings, drums, percussions and organ, eventually bringing all of them together with a brilliant arrangement. Vocals sound natural holding their depth till the end, putting sentiment above style. This song is simply one of the most graceful forms of storytelling at its finest.

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

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.

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

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.

Definitely listen to the dual single 'No Stress' and 'Perky In My Fiji' by Hoodie Rob.

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."
