Release Radar #95

The week has flown by, and that means time to take a look at 5 new releases.

Broken – Aviva ft The Tech Thieves

Starting off with Aviva and the Tech Thieves vocals, as well as electronic beats, the song quickly flows to the chorus, flowing in typical Aviva style, The Second verse keeps the same style in the vocals, but dials back the electronic effects. The chorus rolls around again, before the song introduces a haunting bridge. The song ends with one last chorus.

Lyrically the song talks about staying true to yourself and choosing your own path doesn’t mean your broken.

What I like about this song are the dark beats and overall flow of the song.   

GOOD FOR HER – Mothica ft emlyn

Opening with an old school sounding soundbite, talking about a woman that chooses herself, Mothica her first verse is mostly a reaction to the sound bite, flowing in a poppy way to the chorus on which Emlyn her vocals are mixed in, The second verse opens with part of the same soundbite, but is mostly sung by emlyn, The chorus kicks in faster this time.

Lyrically the song is about female empowerment and not being controlled

What I like about this song is the soundbite and the lyrical hook that is created by the song’s reaction to it.  

Yes Mom – Tessa Violet

Opening with slow guitar, before introducing piano and Tessa her haunting vocals, the song quickly flows into the all out chorus, which is filled with sound effects and dark bass. The second verse keeps with this dark theme, flowing back to the chorus. The bridge returns to the opening guitar and haunting vocals, before introducing a violin, the vocals are than introduced backwards before exploding in some more instrumentals and ending the song.

Lyrically the song seems to talk about growing even when you are kept down by those who should love you.

What I like about this song, is the dark flow of the song, and Tessa her haunting vocals.   

What I Lack – Belmont

Kicking of with some electronic effects, the song quickly introduces its guitars and pounding drums and energetic vocals. The chorus keeps the energy and distorted guitars getting louder before getting on a vocal flow into the second verse. The second chorus comes around and changes little about the instrumentation, but it does some synths are introduced during the bridge, which partly feels like a breakdown. The last chorus is introduced by some broken vocals before getting back to the same blueprint, this is the end of the song.

Lyrically the song talks about the consequences of once actions and the responsibility to deal with them.  

What I like about this song is the introduction of synths, giving it some Myspace vibes.  

Timewaster – Galaxy Thief

Starting of with some synths, the song quickly adds guitars and vocals into the mix, The chorus gives the guitars some more time to shine, before going all upbeat on the second part of the chorus. The second verse keeps the grove the band has build up and flows forward, with the drums, synths, and guitars. The Second chorus hooks you in once again, going into a bridge that gives the guitars their moment in the spotlight. The song ends with one last chorus.

Lyrically the song talks about wasted potential.

What I like about this song is the 80s power pop vibe, reminding of acts such as “The 1975” and “The Band Camino
