Alternative, Pop | Jessie Reid to release folk-inspired heartbreak single “Wake Up”

Posted by on May 14, 2021

Jessie Reid returns with her new single “Wake Up”, staying true to her signature folk-inspired, percussive fingerstyle guitar style. Her angelic top line smoothly floats on top of the electro-acoustic textures, all of which come together for the perfect storm of sounds. Jessie never fails to deliver poetic, vulnerable lyricism which tugs at your heartstrings, and ‘Wake Up’ is particularly stirring. Discussing the meaning behind her new release, Jessie reveals: “I suppose the song is best summarised by the line ’the harder we try, the closer we get to goodbye’. It attempts to recapture some of the frustrations of unsuccessfully trying to fix a relationship. In a way the lyrics represent what I would have said to myself at that moment in time and telling myself to ‘wake up’ to the reality of the situation. There is a sense of anger in the song in some kind of way and I think this is mirrored in the build up towards the end of the song with the heavier use of electronic instrumentation which is something I don’t usually do!” Tune into her latest release “Wake Up” above now and keep Jessie Reid on your radars!

Alternative, Pop | Conal Kelly Drops”Control”

Posted by on December 6, 2020

Bristol, UK based Conal Kelly releases his new track, “Control.” With shimmering synths, dynamic percussion and a grooving bass providing an already irresistible soundscape, the song grows even more magnetic on its outro. Conal is a new name to me but I was blown away by this new single. Check out “Control” above now and read a quote from Mr. Kelly below now!

The writing/recording of this song was the most I have ever consciously pushed myself out of my comfort zone… it can sometimes be easy to find yourself a little boxed in when you’re writing and recording/mixing every part of a track, but this was my most determined attempt to break away from the habits I’d formed. The whole thing took a couple of months to complete, but the finished track is something I’m really proud of and can hopefully show some diversity in my songwriting! The vocal part really drives the song in my opinion…this is also the first time an outro has been my favourite aspect of a song I’ve written, I love that ending vocal hook.” – Conal Kelly
