Uffie Delivers Bold Electro-Pop On New Single “Mine”

Electro-pop princess UFFIE continues her return to music with the release of a sparkly new single titled ‘Mine’. Co-written with Imad Royal (Panic! At The Disco, Bea Miller) and Rogét Chahayed (Travis Scott, Kendrick Lamar, Halsey), the latest offering is melodic electronic perfection that calls back to UFFIE‘s signature “party-ready” vibe while still maintaining the more nuanced pop aptitude that the French-American artist has demonstrated in her recent work.

Since releasing her ‘Tokyo Love Hotel’ EP earlier this year, UFFIE has been welcomed back, arms wide open, to the music industry. Her new music has been praised by key tastemakers such as V Magazine, PAPER, i-D, FLAUNT, and DAZED, and has led to headlining gigs at Elsewhere (NYC) and Moroccan Lounge (LA). In addition to sharing her own music, UFFIE also recently co-wrote P!NK’s new single “Hurts 2B Human (ft. Khalid).” 2019 is proving that she’s is ‘ufficially’ back!

EP Review: This Is For You – Monti

Reflecting on her experiences – from a turbulent childhood, living on the streets, to being in a codependent relationship, geared by drugs and alcohol, LA-based power-pop singer MONTI takes back control and power through her debut EP, ‘This Is For You.’

Introducing a slight misty bed of  soft indie electro pop soundscapes, the tempo picks up with third effort ‘Shadow’, which gives off a big band-ish feel to the electro/pop combo, before reverting back to those floating tones. The star of the show is, no doubt, MONTI‘s powerfully soulful vocals, which is not only pleasing to the ears, but also invites the listener into her world of past hardships, enabling them to feel the pain she went through.

Although it’s autobiographical, ‘This Is For You’ serves as a source of inspiration for anyone to overcome any adversity in life. If this talented newcomer can rise above her troubles, surely so can you.

Album Review: Southwood Waltz – David Ayscue

DAVID AYSCUE‘s debut album, ‘Southwood Waltz’ offers a simplistic yet whimsical approach to his singer/songwriter folkore/Americana fusion, allowing his mellow and delicate vocal instrument to poke through as he documents his transition from youth to adulthood.

‘New York’ gives the eight-track collection a stunning introduction, where the gentle guitar melodies takes centre stage and provides that real authenic acoustic setting.

‘Sliverlake Sunday’ and ‘In My Day’ slightly switches the tone and uplifts the album; the arrangements of ldyllic overtones, the horn section and satisying guitar plucks provides that real gritty soulful rock that really hits the soul.

The hauntingly beautiful ‘Where We Land’ concludes the set with it’s stripped down, guitar/vocal combo, which then builds into an euphoric Mumford-and-Sons style, 4-on-the-floor anthem.

‘Southwood Waltz’ puts Ayscue in good standing as one of the artists to watch for this year. His debut offering is not bad, not bad at all!
