NOA Gets ‘Caught Up’ In Her Brand New Single

When singer/songwriter NOA falls for someone, she often gets very Caught Up in her head. Her brand new single is a personal anthem/reminder to stay in the moment and to focus on how amazingly beautiful, vulnerable and scary falling in love can be.

Although it’s NOA‘s personal journey, this song also serves as a reminder that we all should live in the moment and fully embrace all beautiful and new experiences.

Song of the Day: Gidon Schocken – Sunn (feat. Afik Doari)

Born in the USA now residing in Tel Aviv, electronic artist GIDON SCHOCKEN has shared his track ‘Sunn’, featuring Afik Doari alongside its idiosyncratic music video.

The single has already racked up over 50,000 streams and he has received support from the likes of Music News, Essentially Pop and Neu Futur. Citing influences from acts such as Massive Attack, The Prodigy, The Chemical Brothers, DJ Shadow, Lorn, and Throwing Snow, Schocken’s sound is reminiscent of the trip-hop beats of Portishead while Doari’s vocals verge on a parallel to the smokey breathings of Lana Del Ray.

Speaking of the track Schocken explains: ‘For me ‘Sunn’ is about getting stuck in behavioural loops – sometimes we don’t realize at first that we’re going through one of these, but eventually we can learn to detect them, move through and release ourselves from them. The song features lyrics and vocals by Afik Doari, I’ve always been a fan of her unique accent, vocal colour and style, she really brought the track together.

The video, directed by Stephan Stelman, centres around a girl sitting at a dining table with her parents. She loses herself for a few moments and is soon stuck in an ever-changing loop. Throughout this, she’s seen going into her own little world, where she begins to learn, discover and try to free herself.’

New Music Video: The Thunder – Goldteeth

With debut self-titled EP out now in full, GOLDTEETH now unveils the official video for ‘The Thunder’

In the visual, directed and shot by Oliver Brian Productions, Nicholson portrays this metaphorically in the form of a car passenger, by being ‘always at your side, through any situation’, good or bad.

‘The Thunder’ is the second single from his self-produced, genre bending E.P. While the bass still remains his main weapon of choice, the last decade has seen Andy Nicholson appear in a vast array of forms. Whether it be as a founding member and bassist of the hip hop and indie-rock hybrid Mongrel, or as a studio producer working with the likes of Toddla T, Swindle, Tom Prior and Terri Walker – Nicholson has continued to stay active and contributing to Sheffield’s iconic music history.

Album Review: Grinder – Oloff

If you’re a regular visitor to the blog and have heard OLOFF‘s previous releases, then you’ll know that he’s not your average rapper. To take his music to another level, OLOFF has recently dropped his experimental hip-hop album, ‘Grinder’, the first release he produced single-handedly.

A jarringly racy bass is the main feature of the seven-track set, which rips through the equally racy soundscapes, predominantly made up of rampant urban/EDM tones. The Bristolian, who usually sports a laid back and wayward flow, brings on a freestyle that’s delightfully aggressive which adds more spice to each track in the collection.

After recently listening to his previous albums, personally I wouldn’t say that ‘Grinder’ was OLOFF‘s best work, but I do admire his interpretation of alt-hip-hop and appreciate the amount of work and effort he has put into this mini collection.
