EP Review: My Fairytale – Dovile Lee

DOVILE LEE‘s debut EP ‘My Fairytale’ opens up and gives a glimpse into the darkest moments of her life, issues we all can relate to from time to time.

Sonically, the daunting presence of the piano leads the six-track heartfelt set, with occasional flicks of feather-light yet almost melancholic bass, which gives off that soft operatic-rock sensation. This spine tingling combo is brought together with the Lithuanian singer’s delicately controlled instrument.

Definitely an impressive debut – it’ll be great to see what DOVILE LEE pulls out the bag for her future release. Have a listen to ‘My Fairytale below:

EP Review: Highlands – Delafaye

After periods of recording from the bedroom of his Louisville apartment , Andrew Shockley -aka DELAFAYE – presents his latest EP ‘Highlands, released last month.

The acoustic guitar and drums takes lead in ‘Part I’ and ‘She Shook Me,’ giving off a sultry soulful rock sensation, where the alternative rocker’s vocals lures between the arrangements. Further along the EP, a sweet harmonica makes a brief presence through third effort, ‘Tripping and Rolling’, adding a feather light folkore feel.

‘Highlands’ EP routes back and concludes with that real gritty soulful/rock combo along with the alluring vocals from the beginning.

There are some potential favorites in this mini package – it was VERY hard to choose – so it’s over to you; have a listen to the EP and pick your favorites and say in the comment box.

New Music Video: Paranoid – Scorcher

scorcher-paranoid-video-clipSCORCHER makes his entry to 2017 with the dark and determined ‘Paranoid’, releasing his highly anticipated visuals after the release of the audio. He brings his wavy flow and unique style, coupled with a message that matches the Chas Appeti directed black & red, sinister visuals.

The grime scene favorite left 2016 on a high by dropping ’99 Riddim’ alongside ‘The Movement’ comrades Mercston & Ghetts then following it up in quick succession over Christmas with ‘Last Night In Edmonton’. The MC tore it down for #SiansStudio on BBC Radio 1Xtra resulting in Twitter going crazy over his deep lyrics and reload bars and the fire continues on his latest release.

Teaming up with the unstoppable Donae‘O who not only lends his impeccable production skills to the record but also his indisputably recognisable ad-libs, SCORCHER sets the tone as if it were a soundtrack to a movie, something he is familiar with following his lead role in hit independent file ‘The Intent’, released last year. Packed with warnings and sinister twists, the record is a reminder of the skill that SCORCHER has over his lyrics and flows and the varying pace of instrumental that he can command.

Set to be at every turn in 2017,SCORCHER – aka Scorcher Skywalker – has already graced seven million viewers with an appearance on BBC 1’s Match Of The Day, dropping an exclusive freestyle, which was later released online and gained 420,000 views in 24 hours. He also hit Sky One’s ‘What’s Up Show’, discussing his plans for the year.
