Song of the Day: Driven – Strizzy Strauss (ft SunSun)

After his debut appearance on the blog with single ‘Trust the Process, Leicester’s hip-hop artist STRIZZY STRAUSS, invites us into a captivating and gritty visual narrative (starring Corey Trevor and Hannah Batra) supported by his trademark vivid storytelling through  ‘Driven’, featuring SunSun.

The latest single from the album, Trust the Process, is a downbeat and introspective production where Strizzy Strauss deviates from bog-standard rap music videos and takes us on a journey to observe the elation, breakdown and troubles facing a couple all while lyrically reflecting on relationship dynamics.

Here’s your chance to check out the video for single below, directed by Fraser West (WeTheConspirators)

Song of the Day: Demon – Fayme

Heavily inspired by Bon Iver, James Blake, Yung Lean and Travis Scott, UK artist FAYME‘s offering, ‘Demon’, is a portfolio of experimental sounds with ominous vocals that results in an enjoyable night time vibe.

With the aim to create a Bon Iver esque trap song,  Fayme uses his producing, engineering and vocal skills to create his own genre which he likes to call, “Neon Trap” – a dark eerie instrumental that allows him to create techno esque synths that work well with his vocals.

Song of the Day: Don’t Know Why – Josh Kumra

Co-written with songwriter Raevennan Husbandes, who is known for her collaborations with artists including Kathryn Williams, Lisa Hannigan and Michele Stodard, JOSH KUMRA’s single, ‘Don’t Know Why’, showcases the melancholic piano contrasted by Raevennan’s fluid  guitar plucks. Josh’s thoughtful lyrics and intimate soulful vocals create another soaring cut to add to his collection of heart-wrench songs featured in new EP ‘Pull Me Back In’.

Talking about the songwriting process behind the song, Josh says: “I’ve always had a need to understand why things turn out the way they do. Always trying to figure out what went right, what went wrong, could I have done something different etc. I wrote ‘Don’t Know Why’ as a reminder that it’s ok not to have an explanation for everything”.
