Firstly on our Sound Selection, we have a stunning, warm piece named Eskling by an exciting artist from Norway, Jez_ebel. In this ear-pleasing piece, Jez_ebel showcases her majestic vocals that carry a soft tone, denoting a memory. Elskling is a reflective piece; in fact, and the name itself means ‘lover’ in Norwegian, talking about the piece Jez_ebel stated “I feel like the song carries the last memory of the naive and reckless love I gave. It is the last memory of our nostalgic teenage love and how I will never feel that again. I wrote it in a time of my life where I my bubble was shattered and I was set free.”
With her second song released, we are eager to see what is next for this very promising artist known as Jez_ebel.
Bringing us an 80s inspired piece we have Pretend by the wonderful Daragah. This piece drives on its raw arpeggio and infectious lyrics that are exhibited impressively through Daragh’s addicting vocals. If you’re looking for music that will get you attached from the get-go, then Pretend will be the one for you.
Imbibe Time Heals Every Wound
Luckily for us, we have more catchy euphonious music coming to us. Imbibe, an Australian duo, delivered their newest single Time Heals Every Wound with a terrific throwback-like production, reminding us of a buoyant time. With its atmosphere and themes, the song belongs in a future Guardians of the Galaxy film.
Talking about the song Imbibe said, “We don’t know what’s on the other side of the horizon but I like to think there’s a good chance it’ll be better than before.”
The Toxic Avenger & LOOK MUM NO COMPUTER Lies
Our final addition is by a legendary music producer by the name of The Toxic Avenger. My first encounter with The Toxic Avenger was back in 2013 when his track Angst Two was presented on the classic Nissan Qashqai advert. Now with some brilliant tracks released over the years, including Yellow Ferrari, My Only Chance, and Gloomy Sunday, to name a few, The Toxic Avenger is back with Lies. The song features LOOK MUM NO COMPUTER, an artist known for a unique pallet of instruments who alongside The Toxic Avenger are known as somewhat pioneers in their fields. Structurally and technically speaking, Lies doesn’t break many barriers but still gives us a taste of the raw, gritty sounds we have come to know from the duo. While it’s not groundbreaking, Lies is a striking song worth of attention.
