The pandemic has affected our platonic and romantic relationships in profound ways. RIVIN explores this in his single, “Distance”, as well as this new release, “Give You Up”, co-produced by Ali B. The lyrical refrain this time is for a new opportunity to reconnect and recommit to a deeper love.
It’s been way too long I am missing your voice The world’s drivin crazy I’m playin here alone
This distance and silence is feeding my void I’m begging you baby just pick up the phone
You, you’re the only star I want in this whole universe You, let me show you how I love you without using words
Enjoy the lyric video above. The song is also available for purchase at Bandcamp and other digital outlets.
This is some California sun-soaked, folky-jazz business and I’m here for it. Los Angeles-based Peach Tree Rascals is comprised of producer/mixer Dominic “Dom” Pizano, rappers-singers Issac Pech, Tarrek Abdel-Khaliq, Joseph Barros, and creative director Jorge Olazaba.
Check out their single, “Ooz”. With its sing/rap flow and calm, monosyllabic chorus, it’s easy on the ears and sticky. Plus, the animated extraterrestrial journey of a video is a fun watch.
It’s a vibe from Sydney producer MXXWLL, New York producer Carrtoons, and L.A.’s John Givez and Rae Khalil. They could subtitle this track, “A Funky Day in the Life”. From MXXWLL’s debut album, Sheeesh, here’s “Light Turn Green”.
While Adam Lambert has the enviable position as the lead vocalist with Queen over the last few years, he’s also been writing new solo music. While his first album right after American Idol has had the highest chart success in the U.S., I feel his upcoming EP, Velvet Side A, could make a bigger splash stateside than his previous two outings. The single, “Superpower”, has an 80s production like Queen’s “Another One Bites the Dust”, bridging disco and rock with ease. And much like the Queen track, there’s sticking power to it.
Share your thoughts on Adam Lambert’s single, “Superpower”, from Velvet Side A, scheduled to be released on September 27, 2019.
