TUNNEL TRAFFIC makes a quick return with third single, ‘I’ll Be Sorry’.

The smooth/slight racy arrangement, which makes way for the satisfyingly roaring guitar riffs towards the end, serves as the perfect lead up to his album, ‘Age Of Conviction’, out on next Tuesday (3rd December).

Tunnel Traffic shares Second Single, ‘Skip’

Adam Hachey – akaTUNNEL TRAFFIC once again calls upon long-time collaborator and singer Jacky Muñoz for brand new single ‘Skip’.

Still obtaining a nostalgic feel, ‘Skip’ takes a different detour to previous racy effort, ‘Another Story’, and sports low down gritty arrangements (think Nirvana) with Muñoz’s vocals titillatingly weaving throughout two-and-a-half production.

Released yesterday (19th November), ‘Skip’ is the second installment from Tunnel Traffic’s upcoming LP, ‘Age of Convictions, out next month. Have a listen below…

Tunnel Traffic Unveils ‘Another Story’ Ahead Of Album

Philly songwriter Adam Hachey – aka TUNNEL TRAFFIC – tries something a little different with his brand new single, ‘Another Story’, released yesterday (12th November).

For a change, Hachey steps back and makes way for singer and long collaborator, Jacky Muñoz’s feathery vocal instrument to wash over the nostalgic, shoe glaze – esque arrangements.

‘Another Story’ serves as the first teaser from his upcoming LP, ‘Age of Convictions’, set for release next month. Hachey will release a single each week, until the arrival of the album

Album Review: Flowers Of Doubt – Rain To Dust

A hazy melodic theme, heavily influenced by post punk of the early 1980’s, runs throughout Mert Yıldız’s  – aka RAIN TO DUST –  debut album, ‘Flowers Of Doubt’. Beyond buttery soundscapes, it’s very safe to say that the lyrics are far from melodic….

Every song on the album revolve around how fear brings a need for dependence which consequently breeds more fear, eventually pushing the human being into a shell of personal dogmas and psychological routines that he/she will probably end up dying within.

Introducing the eight-track album is title track, ‘Flowers Of Doubt’, which was inspired by the suicide attack that took place in İstiklal Street, Taksim, İstanbul in March 26th, 2016. The cover photo which was taken in Taksim, in the exact same spot, roughly 2 years after the event.

‘Drinking The Ghosts’, carries the themes of fear and doubt with a story that was inspired by Mika Kaurismaki’s ‘Zombie And The Ghost Train’. It is about the downward spiral of an alcoholic who eventually finds relief from shame in death.

Taking its title from an Osamu Dazai novel, ‘A Farewell With Regret’ is about two people having a one night stand and deciding to hide their true feelings from each other out of fear of emotional rejection. Musically, it references Funk influenced bands of British New Wave with its groovy rhythm, funky electric guitar licks and vocal harmonies.

After several listens, ‘Flowers of Doubt’ becomes a brutally honest production but, at times, I cannot help but feel a agree of empathy to the easily relatable stories featured. It’s worth a trial; have a listen below…

EP Review: Probably Crying – Girl Wilde

When I first hit the play button on GIRL WILDE‘s latest EP, ‘Probably Crying’, I wasn’t only instantly hit by the explosive combo of electro pop and 90’s inspired grunge rock, but her alluring vocals that could rival the likes of Gwen Stefani.

Don’t get caught up in the fluffy frills with a slight rebellious streak, if you’re planning to listen to this EP. Beyond the fun-packed arrangements, the LA artist bravely taps into her vulnerability and covers personal and deep-rooted subjects such as depression (in ‘I Don’t Wanna Die,’ ‘Probably Crying’), female sexual desire (‘WeT’), and anger management (‘BATSHiT’).

Although the above subjects are often swept under the carpet, the message in this EP is clear and simple: it’s OK to experience those feelings, so embrace them!

‘Probably Crying’ is one pretty neat package – why not check it out below…
