Song of the Day: Lucky One – Gena Perala

GENA PERALA rallied some of the finest musicians together for the live recording of her new single ‘Lucky One’.

Recorded at Monarch Studios in Gena’s hometown Vancouver BC, ‘Lucky One’ is a little bit Rock and Roll and a little bit Country with her signature lyrical style: Honest and unapologetic sprinkled with a bit of sass. “I wanted to show all the moving pieces of a song so I brought in a good friend and filmmaker to shoot us while we played the track live off the floor.” Perala explains.

The video captures a fun and playful day in the Studio without any real plan or rehearsal. “I mean I probably should have done a wee bit of planning and rehearsing but hindsight is 20/20 plus I wanted it to be spontaneous. I really wanted to give people an idea of all the instrumentation and players behind a song,” Perala says, explaining the concept of the video.

‘Lucky One’ is part of a side project for Perala right now. She is currently in the process of recording and releasing a down tempo electronic synth album but with so much material the artist feels the need to release music in many forms. “I just need to start getting my music out and I thought this would be a fun way to release a song,” she says.

New Track: Tableturn – Marek Kubala

Newcomer MAREK KUBALA pours his inner musings into his debut EP ‘Awhile’, released on 10th August via 3BarFire Recordings.

Fusing the progressive electronics of French duo Air with the acoustic subtleties of Elliot Smith and Nick Drake, ‘Awhile’s warm, lo-fi tracks combine heartfelt lyricism with lush instrumentation. First from the EP is lead single ‘Tableturn’ which hails back to a relationship that wasn’t meant to be, enveloping the heartfelt lyricism with soaring strings and soft instrumentals.

Based in East London, the Huddersfield native began his musical journey playing the folk and acoustic nights around the North of England. During his studies in Liverpool, he was introduced to a vibrant house and techno scene. Integrating the two worlds, ‘Awhile’ combines the retro 60s/70s-influenced psychedelia of indie music with the droning hypnotism of electronica.

The budding artist is set to release more this year as the lead singer of a new electro-indie band, comprised of DJ/producers Jerry Bouthier and Andrea Gorgerino (Kitsune/Vivienne Westwood).

In his pursuit of new sounds, Marek can be described in contrasts: organic yet downbeat, nostalgic yet forward moving. With the release of his debut EP, the musician has demonstrated his ability to successfully create his own sonic dreamscape.

Song of the Day: Go Away Just To Stay- Delafaye

Following a whirlwind of success last year, DELAFAYE is back with two brand new singles, ‘These Days’ and ‘Go Away Just To Stay’.

Although ‘These Days’ sees the Kentucky singer/songwriter coming out of his shell with a refreshing/slight uptempo affair (LISTEN HERE), ‘Go Away Just To Stay’ steals the blog’s heart for its authentic and stripped back singer/songwriter approach that’s typically DELAFAYE. His undeniable ability to draw in the listener to hear and FEEL every word is simply magical. So it comes to no surprise that his three EPs, released in 2017, gained over two million streams and led him to perform in just about every venue in his native Louisville, KY and beyond.

Both singles are taken from the self-titled debut album, ‘Delafaye’, set for release at the end of this year, December 2018. For now, it’s time to enter into the compelling world of DELAFAYE – listen to ‘Go Away Just To Stay’
