Dynah – Page blanche (Spotify)

Dynah – Page blanche (Spotify)

DYNAH, a new name, a new pop costume tailored especially for the singer-musician Melody LINHART. Two syllables taken from her actual name in order to make her metamorphosis as smooth as possible and let the magic begin! With these five letters, she becomes a freer version of herself.

Originally from an acoustic background where she played jazz, folk and soul music, Melody Linhart is currently undergoing a new beginning, a blank page – « PAGE BLANCHE » is the title of her first single – and starting a new musical chapter, in French this time, propelled by sometimes minimalist electro pop music. Her style lies at the meeting-point between Clara Luciani and James Blake.

Throughout her collaborations, from Paris to London, through Spain and the Netherlands, Dynah has been adopting a new, more efficient, more strait forward, way of writing. She seeks simplicity: “Songs have to come self-evidently.” Melody Linhart has been refining her touch. Her trademarks are: describing a scene in a song as precisely as if it were a movie, composing as if she were weaving an outfit for a character, including unexpected words in her lyrics such as “chrysalis”, or “koala”, hidden poetry.

In this new playground, Dynah is exhilarated and liberating herself: “Pop music is a good excuse to talk about love and sensuality.” Here, a few notes of synth reveal a woman feeling blue. There, desire springs out through programmed beats. Weaknesses, dreams, pleasure, motherhood, Dynah explores pop as she does her life, confronting her lyrics to electronic sounds.

Added to this vindicated sensitivity, are the fantastic meetings with French and international producers such as: Nicolas Gueguen, Martin Chourrout, Guillaume Martial or Lionnel Buzac, all of whom collaborated to this first EP: DYNAH (Finalistes/Musigamy).

Electro music gives her impulse, the stage will give her wings.

Dax – BLACK LIVES MATTER (Official Music Video)

Remember when we were kids and didn’t see color? A song meant to bring everyone together during these tough times of racial tension.

Lyrics:
I can’t breathe
I can’t breathe
ay ya
I can’t breathe

This a (r)evolution (i)n (o)ur (t)ime everybody’s fighting
change coming, YES!
that’s why it’s an acronym for riot
Everybody has a voice don’t you dare stay silent
if you say nothing you are an accessory to violence
let these words dry the tears of my people who are crying we can bring back hope but not people that are dying
This is what happens when the people you’ve oppressed ask for change in a country that they built but you ignored and deny it
This for Sandra Bland, George Floyd, and every single family police brutality has intervened in and destroyed
couple bad cop couple can’t define all you other boys so every good COP needs to stand up and make noise
Black, white, asain doesn’t matter cause we can’t avoid so let’s all come together join hands and yes get annoyed at people who believe racism makes sense in a country built off minority slave work employed
see nobodies born racist man it’s something you learn
Deep rooted in your brain from the day of your birth
I think it’s time that we repair All of the bridges we’ve burned
And let love out of our hearts onto cheeks we turn
Spread love, show love, lets get rid of this curse,
Don’t wait for anyone to act man you go first
400 years wasted let’s get rid of this hurt cause that’s the only way we’ll ever see peace on earth

I can’t breathe
I can’t breathe
I, I
I can’t breathe

Change is what we need
Cut me open, cut you open Red’s the color every single human beings bleeds,
Let’s come together cops citizens and in between and rally for the rights of everybody in humanity
Black, blue, white, green,
Playing for the seam the team
I’m not MLK but boy that doesn’t mean I Can’t dream
Black lives matter shouldn’t anger you or make you scream all lives matter cause we aren’t treated equally
Remember when we were kids and didn’t see no color and when we played in kindergarten and I called you my brother
Then we grew up and they taught us we should hate on each other even though
We one in the same and we all came from our mothers
I hope y’all understand
Hate is not a trait it was learned man
Equality is the quality we need inside this earth man
Give and receive it’s the karma that you earn man

I can’t breathe
I can’t breathe
I, I
I can’t breathe

I can’t breathe
I can’t breathe
I, I
I can’t breathe

Erik Frank – Anxiety (Spotify)

Erik Frank – Anxiety (Spotify)

Maybe the track called Anxiety, but the chill vibes it offers with its nice beats and warm soft voice of Erik Frank was the right theme to relax and groove.

From a small village to the top radio charts, ERIK FRANK has amassed over 100% million streams and is a uniquely talented singer/songwriter.

Nicknamed Melody Genius by Grammy Nominated producer Jayson DeZuzio (Imagine Dragons), and anyone Erik works with, the 22-year-old had humble beginnings.

Born in village of just 200 people, the idea of becoming a star was the very definition of a long shot. Getting out wasn’t easy. Moving from Spain to France, the U.K. and finally landing the U.S., Erik’s formative years and global experience began to permeate his music. His blend of R&B, Pop and Hip Hop is as unique as the countries he’s lived in.

The Bergamot Interview on Nagamag.com

Nagamag:
What are the genres that describe better your music style?

The Bergamot:
A big part of our music is the lyrical development and storytelling. We get a lot of that inspiration from old folk music. However, we see ourselves existing in the alternative/pop genre. So we are constantly finding ways to connect the two somehow. Sometimes it connects and sometimes it doesn't. Our job is to keep showing up...


Nagamag:
Few words about your musical background and career?

The Bergamot:
On October 20th, 2017 The Bergamot released the dreamy anthem P.D.R. (Both Records LLC). The single launched the band's career who was then discovered by Matt Wiggins (Adele, U2, Florence and the Machine) and achieved great reviews being called "The hottest emerging music talent" (People) and "a gorgeous sound" (Daily Mirror). Fans have discovered the band through an unbelievable series of music videos released to promote the new album "MAYFLIES". The videos have been heralded by music critics as "Lush" (PARADE) and "The Perfect Blend" (EARMILK). These groundbreaking videos have brought light to difficult topics and continued to build upon the band's momentum from "P.D.R.". The videos have garnered over 150k views on YouTube. Music blogs from all over the world have taken to "MAYFLIES". The band's single "L.A." has landed at the #1 spot on SubmitHub and the group looks to expand it's presence on the radio both domestically and abroad. The Bergamot was invited to open for OneRepublic and perform their first stadium show in early 2020. The Bergamot is composed of husband-wife duo Nathaniel Paul Hoff and Jillian Speece from the post-industrial town of South Bend, IN near the southeastern shores of serene Lake Michigan. The duo is all American sweethearts from the heartland. In a recent interview, Hoff states, "Jillian and I both look back fondly at our years growing up in Indiana." Growing up they both sang and performed in the church band. They pulled on influences ranging from Pink Floyd, Fleetwood Mac, Nick Drake, and Bob Dylan. The band's main writer Nathaniel discovered the literary genius of fellow midwestern poet Carl Sandberg and his work capturing the life and strain of American life. "The music and the songwriting itself is pinnacle" Hoff explained to Trend and Chaos (NYC). Telling the American story one word at a time the songs touch on many aspects of American life in 2019.


Nagamag:
Do you remember your first connection of love to music that was the right impact to be a music artist now?

The Bergamot:
I remember the first time playing at a coffeehouse in downtown South Bend called Higher Grounds. People had to stand on top of coffee tables to see the show. It changed my life. The cops showed up...


Nagamag:
What's your musical background?

The Bergamot:
We both studied music in college. I (Nathaniel) focused on classical guitar, music theory, and vocal development. Jillian focused primarily on the voice.


Nagamag:
What do you love doing besides music?

The Bergamot:
Jillian - making/eating food Nathaniel - Golf


Nagamag:
Music has no borders and many of us we may listen to more genres that we are mainly involved. So share with Nagamag which track comes first in your mind from music but is NOT similar to your genre?

The Bergamot:
12 Rods "24 Hours Ago"


Nagamag:
Of Course Nagamag would love to listen also which track from a similar artist you admire?

The Bergamot:
Modest Mouse Float On
