Release Radar #36

It’s Friday and that means time for some new tunes, let’s take a look at this weeks line-up.

The Frist Time- Livke

The Frist Time- Livke

Opening with slow guitars, the first verse slowly adds vocals to the mix. Adding vocal effects on the chorus, the song keeps its slower instrumentation. The second verse follows the same pattern as the first one. The second chorus has a stop before getting to the bridge were the vocals show their high point. The song ends with one last chorus.

Lyrically the song describes looking to the future and imagining meeting your soulmate.

What I like about this song is the vocal energy, contrasting with the slower vibe of the instrumentation.

Comedy -SHADED

Comedy -SHADED

Starting of with a lone guitar and far away vocals, the song quickly adds electronic beats and smooth flowing vocals on the first verse. Keeping with the instrumentation but louder on the chorus, the band keeps the flow of the song intact. Following the same blueprint on the second verse and quickly flowing back into the chorus, the instruments get their time to shine on the bridge. One last chorus marks the end of the song.

Lyrically the song is basically a break-up song, telling the other person off and describing their way of thinking as being a comedy.  

What I like about this song is the overall flow. The song is over before you know it but keeps stuck in your head.

All in My Head- Vaines

All in My Head- Vaines

Starting things of with a lone guitar slowly jamming, the vocals are quickly added on the first verse.  Adding more instruments and vocals on the chorus, the band takes it back to the lone guitar and vocals on the second verse but changes things up by slowly adding some effects. Getting back into the chorus the band flows back again to the same lone guitar but goes full instrumental with it on the bridge. With a third verse after the bridge, the song ends with one last chorus.

Lyrically the song talks about the struggle of being in love but being to scared to tell the other person.  

What I like about this song is its simplicity, using one guitar mostly give the instrument more ways to shine and also gives an almost dreamy feel to the vocals.   

Me-Six Impossible Things

Me-Six Impossible Things

Opening slowly with filtered guitars, slow and dreamy vocals are added on the first verse. Vocally both members of the band can be heard, before adding an instrumental break. The second verse keeps in with the style of the first one and uses only guitar and piano on the instrumentation. On the third verse the guitar gets a little louder but still keeps its dreamy feel. The song ends with an instrumental outro.

Lyrically the song talks about the memories shared with someone you are in love with.

What I like about this song is the overall feel, kind of dreamy but also energetic in its own way and an emotional vibe overall.

Starting of with slow guitar and sound sample, the first verse adds a mix of 808s, real drums and vocals to the mix. The chorus keeps with the electronics but adds louder drums. On the second verse the vocal flow goes stronger and the real drums get more feel to them. The second chorus is combined with vocal effect and gets more up-tempo. The repeats the effect of the intro and goes out to 808 beats

Lyrically the song is about the feel of loss, and then question on how to move on when it feels that everything is lost.

What I like about this song is the overall flow as well as the combination of electronics and traditional instruments.
