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.

Ryan De La Cruz Mixes R&B And Dream-Trap Seamlessly In ‘Stubborn’

22-year-old singer RYAN DE LA CRUZ returns with a trap tinged, R&B joint ‘Stubborn’, the second single off his forthcoming EP ‘Syko’

Originally launched into the spotlight in 2017 with single ‘Know About Me’, which quickly surpassed one million views and was crowned ’the best rap video of 2017′ by DJ Semtex, Ryan has been a tearing up the scene for a while. He is now back in full force following the success of his collaboration with Ghetts and S Wavey on ‘Player’ and critically acclaimed single ’Syko’ earlier this year.

Drawing influences from the likes of Michael Jackson, D’Angelo and Chris Brown as well as his tough East London upbringing, Ryan has been setting himself apart from the new generation of UK talent. He injects soulful R&B feels into his fruitful plethora of inspiration, while making it an aim to sing about real-life, important issues.

This upcoming EP is a true testament to this and highlights Ryan’s unique way of thinking. ‘Syko’ is a conceptual body of work, playing on the different facets of his personality with singles like ‘Stubborn’, ‘Crazy’, ‘Rockstar’ and of course, ‘Syko’. The project is an ode to being accepting of who you are, and as Ryan states: “We’ve all got a sense of craziness, be cool with that, it’s ok to be syko”. Using his passion for playing on the juxtaposition of emotion and concept, each track and video really highlight his undeniable eye for fashion and art that has forever been setting him apart from the rest.

With ‘Stubborn’ as a somewhat warm up for what’s he has under his sleeve – so brace yourself for his conceptual greatness! This young artist has truly up’ed the ante this year and this is only the beginning.

EP Review: Nocturne – Dani Darling

Since DANI DARLING came under the NLM radar, with neo soul single, ‘2:22’ her musical direction has taken a detour – a massive detour. Her shift of direction comes in form of the six-piece EP, ‘Nocturne’.

Classic soul meets new hazy lo-fi soul, in this EP, largely in an experimental and almost stripped back setting, that’s immediately appealing. Third effort, ‘One Of Us’, displays use of sound spanning from the Golden Hollywood era, fused with a mesmerizing lo-fi hazy tone providing that four-on-the-floor pattern.

With the exception of concluding piece, ‘Stranger’, all of the singles were no longer than two-and-a-half minutes long; it’s a shame, as I would like hear more!

With her delicate vocals serving as a backdrop for the genre-bending combo, DANI DARLING proves that a great soulful piece doesn’t always have to feature the classic powerhouse performance as the main focal point. Have a listen below:
