New Music Video: Way Out – Greg Banks

If you’ve heard GREG BANKS‘ latest single, ‘Way Out’ last week on NEW LEASE MUSIC, then you might have remembered a mention of a music video coming very soon…Well here it is!

Hit that play button on this three-and-half production on Greg’s most personal song to date.

EP Review: Thunder In The Desert – Amique

AMIQUE‘s self-produced EP, ‘Thunder In The Desert’, explores the realms of spirituality along with love, loneliness and fear, alternating between the richness of soulful gospel and his holistic-ish/hazy take on modern R&B/soul.

His five-track teaser will go down treat with massive fans of Janet Jackson’s, ‘I Get Lonely’, as he put a take-it-to-the-church spin on the 90s hit. ‘I’m Wondering’ and ‘Forbidden Love’ display his holistic approach to modern R&B/soul with the haziness of the guitar plucks giving off that subtle  Prince-esque rock sensation.

With this small set, AMIQUE has built up just enough curiosity, through his well-controlled falsetto, for you to look out for his next move – check it out.

Must Listen: I Get Lonely, Forbidden Love

Song of the Day: Way Out – Greg Banks

GREG BANKS bounced back into NEW LEASE MUSIC’s Song of the Day hotspot for the second time with track, ‘Way Out’.

Continuing the smooth R&B funk combo, featured in previous effort, ‘I’ll Be There’, the latest single is Greg’s most personal piece to date. Through his infamous after-hours falsetto, the funkmaster from New York lays his cards on the table and opens up to the trials and tribulations of living in a busy city…but this guy has enough faith to carry him into this lifetime and the next. He accepts rejection is part of life, which can be turned into opportunities.

GREG BANKS first graced his presence on the blog with single, ‘Tell Me’ which also claimed the blog’s Song of the Day hotspot back in April.

Before you head off, check out Greg’s super smooth number…and if you like what you hear, the video to the single is coming out this Friday!!! That should be good!

New Track: You Got Me Good – ARIA

Following on from ‘Shot In The Dark’, this year marks the release of ARIA’s debut EP. The initial idea for the first single ‘Hope’ – released in July 2017 – was born out of an improvisation in a band rehearsal. Already championed ‘Hope’ is a song that exhibits incredible soulfulness through a veil of dreamy-pop thrills. Tastemakers including The Line Of Best Fit, Spindle Magazine and Popjustice were quick to support this return from the London-based singer-songwriter.

Now with the release of the EP drawing closer, the next single ‘You Got Me Good’ communicates a darker realisation of relationship hardships. Synth hooks twinkle amidst mystical slow-building brooding guitars, marking the single as ARIA’s most touching and personal release to date.

ARIA’s propulsive pop qualities are adaptable and captivating. This is demonstrated in her EP set for release before the end of the year, which displays an eclectic mix of musical genres – spanning from electro-pop and soul to R&B…but for now listen to the stunning, ‘ You Got Me Good.’
