Dr. C & the Gris Gris

“Graveyard Dog” the latest music release from the band Dr. C & the Gris Gris is making waves from their base camp of Lafayette, Louisiana and reaching a global audiences. The band describes their sound as “incendiary rock music with a southern twist” (Dr. C & the Gris Gris). “Graveyard Dog” is certainly lighting up the scene and the band is giving one memorable performance that sizzles.

The band delivers a full listening experience to include the deep and soulful sounds of southern rock fused with electrifying rock waves. “Graveyard Dog” performs at a moderate tempo with varied degrees of slow and sultry sounds and colliding frequencies of a higher pitch. The song is sonically textured while garnering attention with synergized instrumentals performed by the band. The feeling of of the song conveys a series of emotions that range from frustrated to elated, exhausted and sometimes playful. Dr. C & the Gris Gris deliver enticing energy and almost hypnotic ambiance for listeners. Rock, country and alternative music fans will enjoy listening to “Graveyard Dog”.

Popular music fans will also enjoy listening to “Graveyard Dog” as it follows a similar path of Hozier’s “Take Me To Church” which was heavily rotated in the mainstream between 2013 and 2014. “Graveyard Dog” however, is less dark in terms of the songwriting. The song has a much lighter feel though it does present some very expressive lyrics and stark metaphors.

One of the first verses on the song includes the lyrics, “I long for the days when she petted my face, like a good ol’ boy”. The band makes a correlation between a pet owner and their dog and a man and a woman’s relationship. The dog provides an interesting metaphor and listeners cannot help but to wonder what the subject of the story is feeling. Are they lamenting the loss of a loved one, are they now disillusioned by this relationship or are they continuing to stay loyal despite being treated like a dog? The song suggests the star of the show is willing to be treated like a graveyard dog who refuses to leave his owner’s side or in the case of this stunning portrayal, a lover’s side.

Dr. C & the Gris Gris recently released an Official Music Video for “Graveyard Dog”. The visuals present a clean and crisp look into the song with a bit of dramatic irony. The video is set against the backdrop of an actual graveyard where the band members are playing their instruments while a dog runs about throughout the scene. The music video is simple, yet effective in conveying the overall message and feel of the tune. The video is set to black and white which provides a nice contrast for the lyrics versus the instrumentation.

Dr C and the Gris Gris Band

The band’s latest release is an evocative performance that is certain to continue making gigantic waves across the music scene. Dr. C & the Gris Gris is one of the few bands we’ve experienced that captures the essence of rock without fail. While their sound is equally as eclectic as it is electric, they still take listeners down home so to speak, calling on the American spirit. “Graveyard Dog” is a powerful song concisely sums up a range of emotions and experiences using familiar metaphors while still taking the time to entertain listeners. “Graveyard Dog” is a rich experience that delivers on great music, meaningful songwriting and all of the feels.

Dr. C & the Gris GrisDr. C & the Gris Gris call Lafayette, LA home and after listening to their sound their roots can further be understood. The band creates a distinct fusion of rock and roll with “hits of Cajun and swamp rock influence” (Dr. C & the Gris Gris). Fans will also hear the band’s inclusive elements of sludge, hard rock and alternative.

The band, which has garnered global recognition stretching outside of Lafayette, is known for giving a phenomenal live show. No strangers to the scene, members of the band have opened up for acts such as Cheap Trick, Fuel, Sevendust and many more.

Dr. C & the Gris Gris have been likened to legendary acts such as The Black Keys, Jimi Hendrix, Guns’N’Roses and Audioslave to just name a few. The band is known for performing ‘monolithic drums, thundering bass and sleazy guitars (Dr. C & the Gris Gris). We love it!

The band’s debut release is “Hexes with Axes”and it is representative of the band’s signature elixir which fuses “memorable hooks, larger-than-life guitar solos, and in-your-face style” (Dr. C & the Gris Gris). The band is not always setting souls on fire as they have been known to slow down the tempo and kick out a mellow ballad or two. Regardless of what tempo the band performs, they are certain to offer plenty of personality for rock lovers who enjoy a great tune.

Dee Hemingway

“Lies”, the latest release by singer and songwriter Dee Hemingway is a spirit-filled performance that takes no prisoners. Sung over a gritty and rock-infused track, Dee Hemingway tells a story that many individuals can relate to. Her sultry vocals send “Lies” out to the masses with possessive energy and remarkable clarity. The song rocks as hard to the core as it digs deep into the soul to express the utmost level of frustration and the indomitable will to overcome the pain of heartbreak.

Dee Hemingway has the type of voice that true artists are made of. With a powerful range, fans are able to capture and interpret the feelings contained in every single note. Dee speaks to listeners with bold assertiveness and infectious confidence. She presents a descriptive tale through words that is neither glitter nor glamour, yet her performance on “Lies” illuminates.

While the lyrical content on “Lies” examines the pain of heartbreak, betrayal and deception, one should gain inspiration from Dee’s approach to moving on, standing up to the betrayer and taking control of the situation. While discussions of infidelity are often taboo, Dee goes there. Not only does she take on the topic with grace and distinction, she inspires the betrayed to be empowered to walk away with dignity and say “enough” with your “damn lies” as she belts over the raw, electric guitar.

Every once in a while the delusional need to be reminded about the harsh realities and life, love and relationships-they are not all what they are cracked up to be. Dee Hemingway not only brings this truth to light but lands a solid one-two punch into the gut of unfaithful, heartbreakers all over and she does it with soul. “Lies” is a must add track to your ‘dump that loser’, ‘drop that zero’ playlist next to Blu Cantrell’s “Hit ‘Em Up Style (Oops)”.

The band opens up a wide range of possibilities for exploration into a distinct realm, one which defies the odds. Offering a stand out performance, Ibaadat, on “Jiyun Kaise” break the mold and create their own distinct expression of music.  

Watch Ibaadat™ “Jiyun Kaise”

G&S Caught up with Pratul Vishera of Ibaadat™ for an exclusive interview. Get the latest scoop on the band’s music, straight from the source. Check out our interview below.

Behind the Sound with Ibaadat™

How was Ibaadat™ formed and why did you both decide to collaborate with each other?

I was passionate for music since childhood and so was Aman We started learning music from our school days and when we got into our respective colleges, we started participating in various inter college singing competitions. From those competitions we started getting positive feedback from many people and we did won many prizes together. Passion towards music made us to learn about it more and I always wanted music as my career. Also, we wanted to be known as independent group of musicians. so we decided to bring that dream into action.
Since I and other band members worship music with our heart and soul we named the band ‘Ibaadat’. It’s an Urdu word, meaning worship and Selfless Love, since we wanted the word to be very pure and Sufi.

Can you give us some insights into your musical backgrounds?

We both don’t have any family musical backgrounds, no one has ever imagined that we will choose music as our career option. I never took music lightly. I don’t know from where this passion came but I always wanted to be an expert in d field of music be it a singer or a Music Director. We used to save pennies out of my pocket money to give fees of music classes.

Later I learned guitar from Mr. Prakash Gaur while Aman is blessed with a soulful voice & was taught by his Mother who herself is a singer, then we joined Agra Gharana & Patiala Gharana respectively, for polishing & enhancing our skills to next level.

Who are some of your artistic and musical influences?

We are highly influenced by different Genres, I am much more into Folk ,Sufi, classical & Rock Genre and Aman is more into Ghazals, Romantic, Indie & Pop music. We both are highly inspired by Ustad Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan Sahab, Master Saleem, Shafqat Amanat Ali Khan, Papon, Lucky Ali.

What would you say are the most distinct elements about your sound?

I think “Feel”. Yes, that’s what our main aim to deliver our audience. You will always find that “feel” in our song. If you can’t understand Hindi but if you have good melody sense then you will surely enjoy our music.

How do you come up with a concept for a record?

Like we wanted to produce something blissful. So when I composed this song and write Lyrics with him, the song immediately got stuck to our heart and we were smiling each other with a same thought in Mind. It’s hard to say too much about what this sounds like, because it’ll sound a little different to everybody. But I think you could agree that it has a certain sweetness with pain too. And that is unique. To me, I think it’s a bit about that time when many of us face these situations. maybe some have felt loss, struggle and love towards one’s beloved.

Can you take us through your songwriting and composition processes?

Usually, We compose the melody first and then we put words into it. I compose all the songs initially and Aman helps me with the ideas and within maximum 5 minutes we make our song and vision about it. For this song specifically, we took time to write lyrics, but we composed our song very quickly. When you are in particular feel it comes naturally from your heart and you don’t take so much time for it.

What would you consider to be the most challenging part about bringing awareness to your music?

In India, People are heavily obsessed with Bollywood music, so their source to get aware about new music is Bollywood most probably. So we find difficulty to promote our music in the already occupied market by Bollywood but good news is that things are getting changed now and Indie bands are getting lot of exposure from last decade.

Why was “Jiyun Kaise” selected as the newest release for your project?

We had couple of songs in our bucket list but I thought “Jiyun Kaise” has his own class, and initially people will love it. As it has the decent amalgamation of Love and Pain. So we released it. We have much bigger plans for our next music singles.

When fans new and old have the opportunity to engage with your music, what do you hope they will take away from the experience?

It is written in a bit old sense, the classic sense yet music and the complete black backgrounds with specific focuses have given some sort of freshness to the song. I personally loved the music that plays behind the song in it. So, all the fans whether new or old should watch it and I am hopeful that they will love the feel the love in it.

Where can fans discover more Ibaadat™ music?

You can tune up to our facebook page and Youtube Channel for upcoming videos and songs.

It is a new year, what can listeners expect from the group for 2018?

It’s a new year-first of all a very happy and bless full new year to whoever is reading this interview.
And yes we do have plans in this new year as we are sort of busy doing right now doing our shows and some scoring for a movie. We are looking forward to making some new releases.

Through Infinity ‘The Life’ Album An Uplifting Sonic Experience

0
The Life

The Life

The most recent music release by Through Infinity titled ‘The Life’  will offer listeners a phenomenal look into the worlds of instrumental and ambient genres of music. Delivering symphonic sounds with a modern electronic edge and notable rock flair, Through Infinity introduces an illuminating style that is unequivocally unique, mentally soothing and wholeheartedly entertaining.

Venturing into the sounds on ‘The Life’, we will examine the elements of the album’s 11 tracks which will likely resonate with music fans. As noted, the album contains 11 different cuts which are all incredibly unique. While the art of music is always open to interpretation, the opinions below are simply our own take on the body of work. Check out our take on Through Infinity ‘The Life’ below….

Finding Hope…

The first song on ‘The Life’ is “Try To Find The Hope” which is a soothing instrumental track with inspiring melodies and addictive percussion. The track has a moving electronic performance which is complimented well with all of the other instruments, creating a gorgeous synergistic effect. “Try To Find The Hope” is an uplifting performance that exudes positive energy.

“Sight Of An Eagle” quickly garners attention with a dramatic piano introduction. The chords are alluring, drawing fans into what will be a remarkable performance. “Sight of An Eagle” starts off with a slower tempo in comparison to “Try To Find The Hope” but it is just as motivational in terms of its performance and ability to soothe the mind. Subtle instrumentals often give way to more charging thus illustrating the textured layerings of the musicians’ unique sounds while creating a dynamic listening experience. “Sight of An Eagle” is a sonic track that is theatrical in nature. The performance if flawlessly produced and organically awe-inspiring.

A lingering sequence of chords indicate the introduction to “Freedom”. Through the opening of the track, delicate melodies reveal themselves between deep and somewhat dark distorted electronic elements. For over a minute and 24 seconds, Through Infinity sets the stage for what is to come. Slowly building upon each layer of sound, “Freedom” slowly emerges with a synth-heavy tune accented by lush instrumentals and finally a vigorous finish.

Beyond Freedom…

The title track of the album “The Life” is a modern sounding performance with a refreshing vibe. The upbeat instrumentals are filled with vitality as soulful rhythms, bright melodies and rock nuances captivate listeners. Another version of the track credited  as “Diamond’s Rendition” on the album consists of an emotional piano solo. “The Life” (Diamond’s Rendition) is undoubtedly compelling and fascinating. Through Infinity delivers to fans an array of sound which is not only multifaceted but remarkably entertaining as well.

Another notable instrumental on the album is “Aural Spectrum”. “Aural Spectrum” has a unique approach and offers a different contrast to the album compared to the previous tracks.The production consists of driving bass, percussion that is filled with intensity and edgy electric guitar chords. While the instrumental is sonically smooth, it does deliver a grittier feel while still interweaving addictive melodies and futuristic synths. “Aural Spectrum” is an enjoyable listen with a hip vibe. The song introduces a blend that is rock and electronic-infused.

If you fancy soothing laid-back energy, you will enjoy the sounds of “Eliza” a melodic performance with a calming spirit. “Eliza” is a stunning display of warm instrumental layers and easy listening. A balmy guitar performance, soft drums, and jazzy chords make “Eliza” an unforgettable track with soulful appeal. “Eliza” has a loungey feel and could easily be the soundtrack to a relaxing evening out.

Storytelling through music.

Much like “Eliza”, “Our Feeling” is also a moody track with suave vibrations. “Our Feeling” does have a quicker tempo and is punctuated by expressive chords which vary in terms of intensity. The waves which gently roll in on “Our Feeling” are subtle, yet appealing whereby listeners are treated to a myriad of pitches and tempo changes. The instrumental is largely guitar driven and the guitar is expressed in such a way that it almost sounds like it is singing in harmony with the musical accompaniment.

Through Infinity ventures down a newer sounding avenue on ‘Shine’ a spirited jam which features distinct guitars, trendy bass and catchy percussion and lively instrumentals dancing about. ‘Shine’ delivers its share of tonal highs and lows, creating a progressive experience that transitions throughout the entire performance. Embedded within ‘Shine’ are a multitude of influences likely borrowed from each band member’s diverse scope of experience. ‘Shine’ offers not only a rich ambient listening experience, but one that is decorated in noticeable rock conventions.

Winding Down.

‘The Life’ starts to wind down with “Godly Energy”, an instrumental that is reminiscent to a call and response of sorts but without the vocals. “Godly Energy” is dark, intense, and heavy on the bass. Through Infinity deliver another series of future sounds, blending together frantic waves, ambient layers and alternative rhythms. “Godly Energy” is an assertive performance that casts Through Infinity as a band that is able to morph their sound effortlessly.

Rounding out the album is “Holy Streams”, a soothing ambient instrumental highlighted by magnificent wind instruments. The production is an extraordinary finish to ‘The Life’ which visits many different realms over the course of the album’s play. “Holy Streams”, with its expressive flutes seems to carry listeners away to another world, perhaps showcasing the wide range of influences each member of the brand brings to the band with their respective crafts. Listen to the sounds of Through Infinity now…

Listen to Through Infinity ‘The Life’

 

‘The Life’ is a marvelous production that is unblemished robust with musical prowess. The album introduces a diverse range of sounds that both complement and contrast each other. Each performance on the album offers a rare quality that is not often seen. If you appreciate the sounds of orchestra music, electronic music and progressive rock, you will enjoy the sounds of Through Infinity. As the band’s name suggests,Through Infinity’s music is poised to transcend time.

Through_Infinity

Through Infinity, a multinational progressive rock and electronic music band formed in 2017.  Members of Through Infinity include: Josip Pešut (guitars and electronics), Tomo Bačurin (Producer & owner of Longplay Studio in Zagreb, keyboards) and Tomislav Lacković (bass). The band took on even more members as recording of the album progressed to include: Damir Šomen (drums), Antony Reynaert (guitars) and Safiudin Alimoski and daughter Đulijana Alimoski (traditional instruments and woodwinds). The band was founded by Josip Pešut, a Croatian guitarist, songwriter and composer. Pešut has been considered the catalyst of the band’s debut album ‘The Life’.

“The Life” consists of songs that were in development long before it’s October 2017 release, some as early as 8 years in the past. 11 songs on the album feature the electric guitar, piano and flute performances whereby each track represents “diverse emotional states and life experiences authors have gone on” (throughinfinityband.net). Through Infinity intends to release a visual statement which will consist of storylined music videos for several of their track releases.

Collegians Black Mass A Modern Alternative Fusion with Rebellious Energy

Collegians Black Mass

Collegians Black Mass

Melbourne band Collegians recently released another single titled “Black Mass” to follow their popular hit “Vaccine” which reached #10 on the AMRAP Regional Charts,  #23 on iTunes Rock Charts and the Top 20 on AIR Charts.  The band, whose sound has been likened to acts such as Muse, Linkin Park, Garbage and Depeche Mode delivers a rock and electronic fusion that offers mainstream appeal. Though “Black Mass” has been described as a “true anti-establishment track” it beckons fans of popular music no matter where they fall on the political spectrum because after all, one cannot deny good music regardless of their leanings.

“Black Mass” conveys unrefined emotion and a strong inclination for originality. Collegians are re-introducing some of the sounds that will make now 30-somethings reminisce about including 90s alternative and punk while also introducing newer sounds that 20-somethings, tweens and teens will love. It is this wide-generational appeal that will allow the Collegians to transcend time much like the earlier bands they are compared to. Let there be no mistake however, though it is easy to draw comparisons to familiar acts due to some recognizable elements, the Collegians have created their own lane as defined through a unique sound.  The fusion which intertwines electronic elements and rock nuances is unmistakable and righteously addictive.

In addition to the powerful musicianship on “Black Mass”, the songwriting and vocal performances also resonate with audiences. The band really gets to the core of topics that most acts reserve for their inner feelings or personal conversations rather than making such discussions public through music as a medium. Collegians have used their platform effectively, reaching listeners with meaningful content that will evoke an emotional response. This emotion can certainly be felt through every chord, beat, note, and riff as well as the carefully laid vocals.

Collegians_Band

Based in Melbourne, Australia, Collegians is a band that is known for their unapologetic digs into the emotions with their signature alternative-rock fusion. The band formed in 2014 and since landed a deal with Cultivator Records in 2015. Collegians commenced work on their debut album with the release of “Vaccine” which included a single and accompanying music video. Band members include Glenn Patrick (Singer), Gerry Leigh (Guitars), James Leigh (Bass & Keys), and Vince Leigh (Drums).

Glenn Patrick, the band’s frontman has been recognized for his “raw-throated vocals” on lead. The band creates music that resonates with audiences with a high level of depth. Members of Collegians are no strangers to the stage and the band is revered for its live shows which capture the essence of their album. The band is also known for delivering explosive energy during live performances which has enabled the Collegians to reach a vast audience. The British-born lead vocalist and frontman Glenn states, “We all got into music because of the connection it makes with other people, no matter where you are, what you’re into. Music is such a blend these days that an audience reflects that. We just want to get onto that emotional level with crowds, and with whoever gets into the music. It’s all give and take, and we’re looking forward to the possibilities that lie ahead” (collegiansmusic.com).

Collegians have had some time to define their style in terms of writing and production. The foursome is still basking in the critical praise of their debut release “Vaccine” but has not stopped working. Fans are eager with the release of their latest single “Black Mass” which is making rounds across the music sphere to include radio airplay, chart tops, and an ever-expanding audience of new fans.

Part of Collegians signature sound encompasses pop-hooks, dark synths and deeply-rooted rock elements. Combining nuances of the past and facets of today, the band has developed a timely sound that is both compelling and candid. Audiences will take solace in relatable stories of darkness, solitude and anguish, knowing that they are not alone. The fact is, Collegians are bringing back the sounds that music has been missing for at least the last 20 years but with a refreshingly contemporary spin and they have done so with ideal timing.

 

Collegians Black Mass

 

“Black Mass” which has only been making rounds since it’s recent release on November 17th, has received numerous accolades. The track reached #5 on the AMRAP Regional Charts, having also stayed in the top 10 for 3 weeks. The song also topped the iTunes Rock Charts at #9 and in the U.S.A. Songwriting Competition, it received an Honorable Mention in the Rock Category. Learn more about Collegians by following the links below.

Silos Camp Music

Silos Camp Music

Santiago, Chile-based band Silos Camp recently released four remarkable music tracks which speak to the band members’ experience and musical prowess from a modern perspective. Listeners who are privileged enough to experience the sounds of Silos Camp will be truly in awe of the band’s ability to capture a variety of styles and convey them to the masses with the greatest level of professionalism. Silos Camp makes enjoying music easy, but on the other side of the playlist is evidence of meticulous artistry and intricacies that cannot be duplicated.

Though the band is relatively new, their latest track releases indicate a lengthy relationship with music and vast breadth of influences. While Silos Camp may just be rising to prominence as a new collaboration, it is certain the band will become a household name. Not only have the members developed names for themselves individually around their homebase in Chile, but it is also indisputable that the band will leave a global footprint in music that will transcend time and geographic borders.

As we examine four tracks from Silos Camp, we reveal just a few of the distinct elements that are likely to echo among fans both new and old. It is not often that a single band can provide such a wide range of sounds in just short time, however Silos Camp does exactly that.

The first track that we had the opportunity to listen to is “Le petit train bleu”. Silos Camp’s performance delivers distinct folk sounds on this particular song.  The song title which translates to “the little blue train” in French sheds light on the band’s global reach. The track offers listeners a diverse range of refreshing melodies and adoring harmonies. The song catchy and will resonate with fans of country and rock.

The following song, “Your Fate” is certain to be a fan favorite with its driving essence and retro nuances. “Your Fate” is a beautifully composed arrangement which consists of elegant chords, subtle percussion and soothing vocals. Silos Camp gives an epic performance, creating a luscious soundscape. The production is rich in emotive guitar riffs and moving bass.

Another track that strikes a chord is titled “The Perfect Way”. The song is reminiscent to the Beatles as it delivers a myriad of stylistic elements while fusing together classic and modern influences. Silos Camp however, have create their own lane through a contemporary lens. “The Perfect Way” is accented by an infectious score which is both dynamic and remarkable. The guitar-driven track also encompasses distinct piano chords and even at times edgy bass. Songwriting on “The Perfect Way” is poetic and powerful much like the previous cuts while also creating an experience that listeners can relate to with ease.

Finally, “Feel Dusk” offers a slightly different vibe with a rougher edge. Though the song provides its share of subtleties in terms of tempo, the shredding chords in the arrangement are unmistakable, as is the distinct clave rhythm which can be heard faintly in the background. “Feel Dusk” is a sultry sounding song with a rebellious rock flair. The song is arranged flawlessly as with the previous tracks and in addition, it delivers a rather cinematic feel. “Feel Dusk” was by far our favorite song, check out the band’s music video for the song below…

Ravenscroft Anticipated EP Release “Rebel”

Ravenscroft Band

Ravenscroft Band

 

Orange County-based band Ravenscroft has pre-released two singles from their upcoming EP ‘Rebel’. The two latest music releases, “My Dearest One” and “The Chase” are timeless crowd-pleasers with a slightly nostalgic vibe. The renowned California band offers a small dose of the myriad of styles they are so famously recognized for as fans eagerly anticipate the release of their EP ‘Rebel’.

“My Dearest One” and “The Chase” present a highly-contrasted depiction of Ravenscroft’s ethos. While “My Dearest One” is tranquil and melodic, engulfed in fine chords and subtle waves, “The Chase” is intense, edgy, enraptured in driving rhythms, shredding riffs and high-octane vocals. The diverse range performed on both tracks makes Ravenscroft even more intriguing, taking reinvention to a whole new level.  

The Ravenscroft experience has something for everyone though their style is described as alternative rock. Either way, the band’s music is a fantastic alternative to the commons sounds that seem to permeate the airwaves on any given day. If you enjoy rock ballads and 90s alternative, you will love “My Dearest One”. The song has emotive,  a luxe musical accompaniment and moving rock vocals. Dramatic guitar riffs, inspiring bass and powerful percussion creates a dramatic landscape that is reminiscent to bands like Aerosmith and Guns N’Roses.

There is a noticeable juxtaposition between the release of the two singles, as “The Chase” takes on a completely different persona. The song is packed with vigorous energy and elicits a darker ambiance. “The Chase” is a heavy track with a distinct metal feel. While giving an epic vocal performance, and some seriously electrifying guitar riffs, the song is furiously emotional. If you enjoy the sounds of bands such as Nine Inch Nails, Metallica and Karnivool, you will love Ravenscroft “The Chase”.

Ravenscroft

Frequently bands are often recognized for their signature sounds, rarely deviating from what is most familiar to fans and if they do depart from what is most distinguishable, they are met with cold resistance, labeled “sellouts”, and later fall off into oblivion. “My Dearest One” and “The Chase” provide a multidimensional perspective on Ravenscroft, the band described by The Indie Music Artist as being, “mesmerizingly melody-driven” (The Indie Music Artist). Ravenscroft clearly is fearless in their approach to experiment with different sounds and the fact of the matter is they are able to reach a wide audience and close generational gaps with ease. With a Twitter fandom of over 41K strong, Ravenscroft is kicking in doors with a vengeance.  Check out one of the band’s most recent videos “The Chase” below.

GREYE Single “Windows” Revitalizing the American Spirit Florida Progressive Americana Rock Band Gives an Unblemished Performance

GREYE Windows

GREYE Windows

 

It has been quite a while since we have covered an Americana collective, but we recently discovered some sweet sounds from GREYE, a Florida-based Progressive Americana Rock Band. GREYE just released their latest project “Windows” and the band’s lead single of the same title currently has the global music-sphere lit.

Released in July, “Windows” is a polished performance with a blistering down-home feel. The song, which carriers a laid-back vibe is driven by a distinct score which consists of addicting guitar riffs, robust bass rhythms, catching percussion and a luscious vocal performance. “Windows” is the quintessential fusion between some of America’s most popular genres with a distinctly modern feel. GREYE gives a flawless performance and production on the single is among the cleanest we’ve ever experienced from an indie band.

GREYE offers music lovers a rich listening experience which not only includes alluring vocals and professional musicianship, but also an opportunity to experience thought-provoking songwriting content which is often difficult to come by in the mainstream. “Windows” is a performance that can be appreciated from various perspectives regardless of your music preferences and most of all, it is a great song and easy to absorb.

GREYE is a refreshing introduction to neophytes of Americana who have not yet had the opportunity to experience its nuances, while Gen X-ers will gravitate towards the progressive sounds that defined the 90s, reflecting back on music’s evolution. Millennials just now stumbling upon bands like Pearl Jam, will marvel at the sounds of real music, and those that relish in the conventions of The Allman Brothers Band will give a nod to the deeply rooted influences heard in GREYE’s release.

Listen to GREYE “Windows” on Soundcloud.

Based in Daytona, Florida, GREYE consists of band members Hannah Summer (vocals) Jett Wolfe (guitar), Joshua Reid (bass), Ray Grimard (drums). The band got its start in 2012 and has since performed at both local and national venues.

In 2014, GREYE released their debut album ‘Providence’. Following the success of ‘Providence’, the band released the full-length LP’s ‘The Tube’ and ‘The Worrier’ in 2015 and 2016 respectively. GREYE members cite a number of musical influences ranging from the Red Hot Chili Peppers to John Butler Trio, YES and many others. Jon Allred of “Indie Music Lives Here of Portland” stated, “…forget 50 shades, one does of GREYE is all you need at the end of the day to unwind and lose yourself to a music masterpiece…”

Having been praised for their work ethic and in receipt of numerous accolades, the band has definitely made its mark on music since its original inception. GREYE was highlighted at the 2015 BMI Key West Songwriters Festival and vocalist Hannah Summer was selected as Songwriter of the Year at the Songwriters Showcase of America 2014-2015.

The APX Capture the Moment A Modern Cross-Over Fusion

The APX

The APX

If you happen to be in need of a good electronic music fix, then The APX, an Atlanta-based duo is ready to deliver with the release of their recent production “Capture The Moment”.  The multi-faceted song is the quintessential blend of infectious rhythms, playful melodies and lush vocals. Without a doubt you will not want to “let this one pass you by” as the song’s lyrics suggest. “Capture The Moment” is fun, inspiring and refreshingly uplifting.

“Capture The Moment” is robust with highly synthesized electronic elements, funky guitar riffs, rolling drums and intoxicating bass rhythms. The track is a dynamic expression of various electronic genres with a dash of soul. While the songwriting is catchy and uncomplicated, the vocals are executed in a peerless manner. The music consists of complex layers, sweeping transitions and cascading waves of modern sound.

What is most fascinating about The APX? The talented duo fuses together elements of the past with styles of the present to deliver a remarkably flawless performance. There are moments during the song that are reminiscent to 80s freestyle and performers such as Lisa Lisa and Cult Jam, Starpoint, and many others. “Capture The Moment” is the type of song that crosses generational boundaries and outlasts the ages because it is simply that timeless.

Whether you fancy Synthpop, Funk, Disco, or Deep House grooves, you will fully embrace the sounds of The APX and their latest release “Capture The Moment”. If two worlds were to collide, The APX might fall somewhere between Tiesto and Daft Punk, however the collective has created their own unique sound that won’t soon be duplicated.

The APX Capture The Moment

Husband and wife duo Dee Rhodes and Erika Rhodes put together an electronic alter-ego project now known as The APX. Though the collaboration is a new undertaking for the pair, neither artist is a stranger to the music industry. The APX went into launch mode following the culmination of a successful private event band known as “The After Party Experience”.

Artist Insights

Before The APX, power couple Dee and Erika Rhodes were leaving their mark on the industry. Erika performed at Barack Obama’s Presidential Inauguration and opened up for pop icon Mariah Carey. Having shared the stage with greats such as Pat Benatar, Floetry, and Diana Ross, Erika Rhodes is known for having a versatile vocal range and diverse repertoire crossing over several genres ranging from rock to R&B.

Dee is also an established musician that has performed on the popular shows such as ‘Being Mary Jane’ and ‘Single Ladies’. Dee performed for industry legend Stevie Wonder and celebrities such as Vivica Fox and Usher at the young age of 12. Gaining industry experience as a live music promoter in Atlanta, Dee has put his skills to work in booking concert tours for The APX.

The group released “Capture The Moment” initially to “test the waters”. Since the song release in January 2016, the team has expanded on their breadth and zoned in on refining their distinct sound which is a fusion of Nu Disco, Electro Funk and Synthwave. The APX hopes to take a myriad of influences including 80s music and “fuse them into a new era” according to the band. The duo accomplishes this by incorporating a 50/50 split of DJs and producers and live performers much like Chromeo, Capital Cities, and others.

The APX recently remixed several of their live performances to illustrate what fans might expect at a live show. Live performance videos have been a source of success for the creative project, having allowed the group to grow their fan base exponentially while receiving kudos from world-renowned artists such as Teddy Riley, Dave 1 of Chromeo, Alex Frankel of Holy Ghost, Nick Littlemore, Empire of the Sun, Dam Funk, Native Instruments and many others. Dee and Erika describes The APX sound as “creating a galactic funky atmosphere using synths, sax, and vocals”.

The APX is set to release another single titled “Lose Yourself to the Groove” on April 28th, 2017 and the groups debut EP will be released on May 22nd, 2017.
