We have been on a journey with Regulus Red right from the beginning while documenting each new single release at every step. Today marks the launch of the Italian-Welsh singer-songwriters “Red Prince of The Night” EP, the culmination of Red’s stunning debut body of work. With the singles, Red has given us an immense, taste of eclectic artistry. Not, just, seen in the tracks themselves, but also encompassed in the visual elements, which have arrived with each release. One track on the EP we haven’t heard before is “The House of God.” A dark dance-pop stomper with its own, unique story to tell.

Red Prince of The Night” is the story of a prince who through sorrow and pain, found power. Life is an intense fairytale, and this EP is the prologue of my life. I hope you can appreciate the choice of sounds and lyrics that I created with the help of my friend and composer, Future Humans. “Red Prince Of The Night” is the frame of who I am. And now, it’s your turn to dive in”. Regulus informs.

Being that I’ve already spoken about most of the tracks on the EP “All For Himself,” “Wanna See You Naked” and “Body Rock“. It would be amiss of me not to share some thoughts on “The House of God” (besides I had an early preview a while ago. I’ve been patiently waiting for the track to see the light of day, as it’s totally my favourite track on the EP.) In an instant, you’ll notice how biting the lyrics are. Red holds no prisoners when speaking about a sickly sweet & toxic romance, that’s for sure. Not only does the music cast a dark sonic spell the lyrics are also equally haunting. Teamed together, they make for a spookish, somewhat eerie gesture, arriving in time for Halloween.

More importantly, don’t forget to check out the EP “Red Prince of The Night” it’s an exuberant and irresistible electro-pop feast for the ears.

Watch “Don’t Recall Growing Old” by GRANT https://eqmusicblog.com/watch-dont-recall-growing-old-by-grant/ Fri, 23 Oct 2020 10:28:52 +0000 https://eqmusicblog.com/?p=29142 Epic pop, powerhouse vocals from Sweden's GRANT on "Don't Recall Growing Old." Lead us to conclude she is a rare find, among pop circles,

The post Watch “Don’t Recall Growing Old” by GRANT appeared first on EQ Music Blog.

]]>

A month on from releasing “Hell I’m Betting On You” Sweden’s GRANT has dropped her sophomore EP “Vertigo.” When previously talking about the alt-pop artist. I noted her use of soul-baring lyrics and evoking a style of conscious music with integrity,which pushes the sonic envelope, in particular. The 4 track EP serves just that, delivering a diverse palette of musicality and songwriting. A mini body of work which is more complex or discerning, than just being an easy listen. The EP’s launch is heightened by the simultaneous release of “Don’t Recall Growing Old,” as a single.

Speaking about the song, GRANT reveals. “Don’t Recall Growing Old” is about breaking down the barriers you built up when you were young and idealistic – and had very, high demands and expectations on love and what it should be. Honest love is for grown-ups. I didn’t really, think I’d get there, but here we are”.

Listen on Apple Music

The musical shift from the moody, abstract leanings of “Hell, I’m Betting On You” and the epic pop tailoring of “Don’t Recall Growing Old” couldn’t be more distinct. On the latter, GRANT delivers, classic high-end pop song-making. It’s a powerhouse track built from epic instrumentation, biting lyrics and powerhouse vocals. Yet reveals a pop sensibility that’s, undeniably of the moment. Once again the music video is directed by Zoë Que and is inspired by retro technology. A wall of flickering CRT screens is, broadcasting her own face as she sways between her feelings; of scrutinizing and assembling herself. GRANT was only brought to my attention a couple of months ago, but I am already of the firm opinion everything she commits herself to is carried out meticulously. She is a rare find, among pop circles, that’s for sure.

Premiere: Watch “Crush” (Jennifer Paige Cover) by Tinx https://eqmusicblog.com/premiere-watch-crush-jennifer-paige-cover-by-tinx/ Wed, 21 Oct 2020 09:25:35 +0000 https://eqmusicblog.com/?p=29131 If you cover Jennifer Paige's "Crush" you better treat it with care. It's in good hands with Tinx who has put a big, noughties stamp on it.

The post Premiere: Watch “Crush” (Jennifer Paige Cover) by Tinx appeared first on EQ Music Blog.

Because we are spending more time at home at present. Many of us are reconnecting with our all-time favourite songs as a way of escaping everyday life at the moment. From when she was just a kid growing up, the Jennifer Paige 1998 mega-hit “Crush” has been a particular favourite with alt-pop singer Tinx. The Swedish born, London living singer hadn’t considered covering the iconic pop track before, but…

“When my manager jokingly suggested I re-work it (“Crush“), I gladly accepted the challenge. I got to reconnect with Tylr, (who I worked with on my 1st EP and making this was just easy & fun)… Until I actually, started to ball my eyes out in the studio. It’s not one to sing when going through a break-up. That’s, for sure,” Tinx explains.

Listen on Apple Music

Crush” is one of those tracks, everyone knows. In fact, I suspect most of the EQ readers have probably grown up with the song themselves. The original Jennifer Paige version marks an important, milestone in pop for 30, 40, 50-year-old somethings, it is to us as everything Lady Gaga releases, is to the Millenials of today. If you have the crazy notion of covering “Crush,” you better treat it with care.

What did Tinx do with this chirpy, feel-good and well-loved pop song? She completely altered the tone, making it all kinds of dark, sonically atmospheric and mysterious. As new re-works go, this one is a delectable slice of retro-pop reimagining with a big noughties stamp on it. Because we love the original and this new version of “Crush,” we’ve got Tinx’s lyric quarantine video to show you. The video which, premiere’s, here on EQ Music Blog, shows the singer recording a series of clips of herself at home, appearing every inch the bedroom pop star. The footage is much the kind which ends up on TikTok. Although, I’m guessing Tinx crush doesn’t have TikTok, since she’s shared it to YouTube instead. The effect is still felt the same. It’s a link with self-made, viral video culture which is booming even more because of stay at home guidelines coming in force. The Tinx version of the track takes on board some of the current trends, however, “Crush” still remains as personable and relatable as it ever was.

Puzzle me this? Why didn’t “Never Let Me Go” the new release from Josh Wantie with Conor Maynard appear on this week’s Spotify’s New Music Friday UK playlist update? Durban-born Wantie currently resides in the UK as does Maynard, which I believe would deem them eligible for inclusion. Spotify may have overlooked the release, but I am not going to do the same, especially when it is bathed in electro beats.

Conor still has a sizeable following into the millions since his meteoric rise to fame in 2012. He moved into providing vocals on dance tracks for a while, before picking back up with unleashing original tracks earlier this year. The singer’s link up with Josh Wantie on “Never Let Me Go” sees the pairing explore pop sensible, dance music. It’s pure and simple as that.

Listen on Apple Music

The collaboration comes after years of friendship and writing music together. The production is sleek, top draw stuff. The vocals as you would expect from a pop voice are equal measures of dreamy and soulful. On the downside, it feels a little predictable and all too familiar. Having said that the track is still a good, example of thoughtful electronic dance-pop. In so much, that it wipes the floor with most of the releases placed on this week’s New Music Friday UK on Spotify. And further commits to Conor’s branching out as a collaborator in the EDM world. Give “Never Let Me Go” a music video, let’s see it grow.

Listen to “Joyride” by Maybon, Skylike, rainage https://eqmusicblog.com/listen-to-joyride-by-maybon-skylike-rainage/ Tue, 20 Oct 2020 08:01:07 +0000 https://eqmusicblog.com/?p=29123 Looking for something to uplift you up? It won't come more uplifting than "Joyride." Hi-energy electro-pop from Maybon, Skylike & rainage

The post Listen to “Joyride” by Maybon, Skylike, rainage appeared first on EQ Music Blog.

]]>

For those who thought summer had ended, think again. Maybon, Skylike and rainage are three of Norway’s rising electronic music talent. Who have bottled up some sunshine, unleashing it in their latest collaborative offering “Joyride.” In his short time making music, Maybon has seen some huge, success in his native country. Similarly, with singer-songwriter rainage and producer-songwriter Skylike, the audio streams are on a skyrocketing trajectory.

I commend these three for pooling together their strengths. Being undaunted and unleashing the fruits of their labours in what are such challenging circumstances for EDM artists, at present. I wanted to support this release because I am full of admiration for their resilience and focus. They are making sure that one of the worst-hit music genres by the pandemic remains heard. I’d go so far to call their actions vital to the continued success of the EDM movement right now.

Listen on Apple Music

If you are looking for something uplifting to perk you up, it won’t come more uplifting than “Joyride.” A track which acts as a reminder to indulge in nothing but unadulterated fun when we can. I am definitely hopeful, by the time Summer, 2021 arrives, social distancing rules may have become more relaxed. That we’ll be happy dancing ourselves silly to anthems like “Joyride” but what’s to stop us from having a crazy bop from the safety of our kitchen. As Sophie Ellis Bextor, showed us it can be tremendous fun. With the hi-energy pop of “Joyride” as our guide what could go wrong?

Listen to “Spa” by Icona Pop x SOFI TUKKER https://eqmusicblog.com/listen-to-spa-by-icona-pop-x-sofi-tukker/ Mon, 19 Oct 2020 08:59:31 +0000 https://eqmusicblog.com/?p=29114 Most clever. Icona Pop and Sofi Tukker found a new way of making dance-pop relevant in the COVID era. With whip-smart, ebullient "Spa."

The post Listen to “Spa” by Icona Pop x SOFI TUKKER appeared first on EQ Music Blog.

]]>

Neither pop pairing Icona Pop nor wacky electronic duo SOFI TUKKER has charmed me in a while. However, learning about them joining forces in the studio, on the track “Spa,” lead to me being, somewhat curious about the collaboration. I sure wasn’t expecting anything subtle to come out of their venture. My first thought was, these acts, together have the possibility of pushing bonkers to the limit. But would they go there, and if they did would I be into it?

Both acts have collared sync deals with their incendiary pop releases (Icona Pop with “I Love It“, Sofi Tukker with “Batshit“). Will their joint-effort prove as lucrative? Well, possibly, because “Spa” is the kind of sparky driven banger which works well in TV advertisements, that cool on-trend brands are eager to link with. A track peppered with hooks, a dose of uniqueness and that is instantly recognisable. “Spa” has it all.

Listen on Apple Music

With COVID-19 still around, dance music doesn’t seem to fit in, right with the current, on-going restrictions around socialising. Fair play to Icona Pop and Sofi Tukker who have turned on the situation its head, and made the most of keeping to their musical lanes, whilst still poking a little fun, as usual. Swapping out ‘club’ references for mentions of pampering sessions at the spa is sharp-witted of them. I can’t begin to imagine they would have written a track about self-care (at least in this form) before all that has happened in 2020. It is a clever-stroke of intuitively by them that “Spa” promotes wellness of the body and mind. As well as being reflective of, how many of us are now filling the void in our leisure time. Whether gifting ourselves treatment at the beauty salon or pampering at home. It is one of the few, enjoyments that we are still allowed to reward ourselves with for the time being. “Spa” resonates with this. And so, Icona Pop and Sofi Tukker found a new way of making dance-pop relevant in the COVID era, they are clever beans aren’t they!

Listen to “Priority” by Dominique https://eqmusicblog.com/listen-to-priority-by-dominique/ Mon, 19 Oct 2020 08:33:45 +0000 https://eqmusicblog.com/?p=29117 In a way 2020, has helped with Dominique's musical reset. Take a listen to "Priority." She's now got quite future-forward a sound going on.

The post Listen to “Priority” by Dominique appeared first on EQ Music Blog.

]]>

Yes, Yes and three times yes. Why? Because, the music style of New York singer-songwriter, producer Dominique has undergone a brilliant reinvention. Since her 2018 release, of the sassy “Payup,” Dominique took some time out from releasing her own stuff. Instead, she turned to working on other music projects and honing her production skills. In the two years since we last heard from her, she’s been broadening her artistic strengths. Leaving her a with bolder perspective and fired up with new ambition, about her music-making. She’s become more enterprising about taking a new direction, that she’s released two tracks simultaneously, “Girls Can’t Produce – Give Up” and “Priority.

Dominique had been prepping the release of “Priority” as her comeback track, whereas the “Girls Can’t Produce – Give Up” launch came about more organically. (Last week she posted, a quick, song, she made in the space of a few hours on TikTok. It received over 2 million views. It was made, in response to, a man who told her “Girls Can’t Produce, Give Up” it had so much support and demand for a full version, team Dominque unexpectedly released it on the same day as “Priority.”)

Listen on Apple Music

Even before the naysayer stepped in, Dominique had been challenging herself like never before. In the press release, she explains of the new music – “I realised that I don’t want to be making music for “easy listening.” Hurrah for that, unfortunately, it is just this, that too many emerging artists fail at and why they end up fading into the background.

Applying her new beliefs to “Priority,” Dominique, concentrates even harder on the production. Plucking influences from PC Music and Charli XCX. The New Yorker’s style reinvention has slide evermore to the alternative, left-of-field side of the pop spectrum. Where her vocals are now served chopped up and edgy. A future-forward styling, hurtling towards the K-pop side which really suits.

Of, the meaning of the song – Dominique says, “it is pretty straightforward. If someone never learned how to love, nothing you do will teach them how to. You can be that persons biggest support system and try to, right every wrong in their life, but nothing you do will teach them how to love you back in the same way.”

In a funny, way 2020, has helped with Dominique’s reset. Take a listen to “Priority.” I think you’ll agree she’s got quite a sound going for her.

Listen to “No Other Way” by SHAED https://eqmusicblog.com/listen-to-no-other-way-by-shaed/ Fri, 16 Oct 2020 10:00:29 +0000 https://eqmusicblog.com/?p=29111 Highly addictive, pristine pop. SHAED are back. "No Other Way" with its ear-worm melody and lyrics has the power to elevate the band further.

The post Listen to “No Other Way” by SHAED appeared first on EQ Music Blog.

]]>

We were reasonably early adopters of SHAED, first writing about them in 2017. Raj also got to check the band out the same year during his annual pilgrimage to SXSW. SHAED’s moody, soulful electronic pop was a hit with the both of us. We felt it was only a matter of time before they had a hit song on their hands that everyone would know about. The band’s breakout came with the track “Trampoline,” first used in a MacBook Air, TV commercial. Later in 2019, a remix of the track surfaced featuring additional vocals by former One Direction member ZAYN.

Chances are, you will have heard at least one version of “Trampoline.” Although, possibly unaware who was behind the track. It is Washington DC trio SHAED, twin brothers Max and Spencer Ernst with vocalist Chelsea Lee (she’s now married to Spencer.) With interest picking up on the band and utilizing their downtime owing to the pandemic. They’ve since been hard at work getting their debut album together (slated for release April 16th 2021, through Photo Finish Records). But, today they release the first of their new material and indicator to the album, the track “No Other Way.”

Listen on Apple Music

SHAED’s, return is somewhat brighter than the earlier moodier offerings. A bona fide feel-good anthem steered by a super-catchy refrain that you will most probably find yourselves whistling out aloud without a moments thought. Indeed, since checking out the track, it has remained firmly, stuck fast in my head, for days. I’ve been buzzing for Friday’s, release day to arrive. We will see SHAED in another sync-deal, “No Other Way” has such potential.

“These past 6 months have been a struggle for us all, filled with anxiety, disappointment, and uncertainty. We wrote this song as a reminder to live in the moment, which is the only thing we can control.” – SHAED

No Other Way” with its ear-worm melody and lyrics has the power to elevate the band further. Therefore, I have very, good hopes SHAED will reach new heights next year.

Listen to “Better as Friends” by Eighty Ninety https://eqmusicblog.com/listen-to-better-as-friends-by-eighty-ninety/ Fri, 16 Oct 2020 09:30:53 +0000 https://eqmusicblog.com/?p=29108 We are first-time listeners to Eighty Ninety. The ear-soothing pop of "Better as Friends" makes us want to hear more from them. Much more.

The post Listen to “Better as Friends” by Eighty Ninety appeared first on EQ Music Blog.

]]>

The new track from New York duo Eighty Ninety “Better as Friends” is reminding me a lot of my most favourite The 1975 track “Somebody Else.” I think it’s because both the melodies are quite similar. Rather than spoil my enjoyment of the track, it adds some plus points to it. It means that right from first listen “Better as Friends” has practically already burrowed its way into my head. These being my findings, with no more than thirty seconds, play down.

Even with them being favourites of playlists, where they have been hand-picked by Taylor Swift for her official Spotify playlist “Songs Taylor Loves“. I hadn’t come across the duo before. As a first-time listener to Eighty Ninety, I am enjoying the relative simplicity, of the softer synths used on this track. From taking a quick peek at some of the duos previous releases. I understand the style of “Better as Friends” is somewhat a change from the more normal guitar-driven pop they are known for. Nonetheless, I feel the progression into incorporating bolder electronic elements into their signature singer-songwriter sound is a good move for them.

Listen on Apple Music

In the press release, the duo is noted as making reference to their style, calling it “808s and telecasters.” What a cool, way of describing their sound, I love the phrasing they went with as a definition. For me, it is a good indication of where their wordcraft is at. (Before intently, paying attention to any of the songwriting, from the brothers.) Their lyrical style comes from a deeply personal place. The kind of emotively touching, songwriting which is easy to relate with. And where words and phrases leap out and stick with you, super quick.

About “Better as Friends” –

“It’s about the desire to live in the past rather than face the end, and how loving someone can mean wanting the best for them even if that no longer includes you,” Abner and Harper write.

My gut feeling is, (and I hope the duo are prepared.) With a bolder electronic edge on-board, Eighty Ninety are about to garner up a whole load of new fans, of which I am now one.

The post Watch “Pump The Break” by morgxn appeared first on EQ Music Blog.

]]>

I love when a pop artist puts out a song which is styled in a completely different lane to what I have come to expect. In respect of morgxn, more so of late, at least since the release of the debut album “vital.” I anticipate magnetic anthems which pulsate, with vibrant, uplifting arrangements. Teamed with authentic narratives, formed of lyrics which may as well as have been stitched on-his-sleeve. When morgxn shares a new song with us there, is every chance it will end up more melodically diverse each time.

When he put out “OMM!” I really felt the sizeable shift in dynamic. I referred to the track as his “Bowie” moment. I am glad he decided to stick with this trend and expand upon it because he’s just unleashed an absolute corker by way of latest effort “Pump The Break.” A track which advocates pushing forward with our hopes and aspirations. In a comment made on Instagram, morgxn shared that he…

Listen on Apple Music

“almost didn’t release this song because I thought what’s the point, but the point to me is that there is something revolutionary about having hope at this moment.”

He didn’t realise at first, yet exactly being the pragmatic voice we needed to hear. The track has morgxn marching to the beat of his own kick-drum, and we should follow a similar suit. Shape the future, learn from the past. The buzzy, quirky beats, of “Pump The Break” will guide you there. From all angles, a future-forward track. If the off-kilter melody doesn’t reel you in at first listen, the inescapable groove will, for sure.
