Suchy Sha – Laylow (Video)

“Get explode through a full funky mediterranean vibe, an endless groove which uplift you thanks to the strong voice character of Suchy Sha which sings with passion, music layering with clarity and while you think you have get enough, it comes on 01:54, to push you up and dance in full energy. We enjoyed every second here and especially that music here stands equally in same high quality with vocals performance.”

Phenomenal up & coming talent Suchy released her brand new single ‘Laylow’. Filled with soulful emotion & a diverse mix of instruments, the track also contains important messaging around the often overlooked topic of coercive control – a subject matter gathering real momentum both in the news & entertainment via key storylines in a number of high profile UK soaps.Suchy’s soul-filled and alternative R&B infused vocals glide across a soundscape drenched in Latino strings and Ska inspired horns. The track uncovers Suchy’s real life experience watching someone close to her become embroiled in a toxic relationship fuelled by mental abuse – ‘Laylow’ is a powerful warning to the man, calling him out for all he has done and warning him that he better lay low. It carries a powerful sentiment of loving & respecting yourself enough to leave and also for those who know a potential victim to step in & help them get out from dangerous situations. The messaging is perfectly summarised in the key lyric: ‘She’s gold tipped and you’re brass bassed’ – a confident and cutting sentiment that the people who inflict this pain will never be good enough for Suchy’s circle.Enriched by the rich musical culture of Bristol and the city’s distinctive flair, ‘LayLow’ comes to a head with a drum and bass breakdown that perfectly encapsulates Suchy’s ability to draw from all aspects of her life.”Sounds like an old American soul singer. Walked in like an English rock star” – Craig Charles, BBC Radio 6 Soul & Funk Show.”Suchy is a refreshing new artist whose independent attitude and insightful lyrics sets her apart from the crowd. Her sound is one you won’t be forgetting anytime soon.” – Sadia Akhtar, Presenter/Producer BBC 1Xtra & BBC Asian Network. https://ditto.fm/laylow-suchy

A hypnotic jazz alternative driven by vocals song. Torso are a three piece band from Tunbridge Wells, Kent, UK. Their drums are self playing and controlled with robotic arms, but that still counts a full band member! Their songs are low-fi chill, and include melodramatic themes and self deprecating humour.

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?

Mordian is Gothic-Alternative artist for the Darkened Heart. Mordian said about this song:
"When I was writing and recording this track, I envisioned a different time... a ballroom in a 1700s palace, a princess dancing alone with only her harpsichord player to accompany her, and a melancholy, indescribable feeling as she loses herself in the dream of the dance."

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

Gregory Paul Mineeff:
Ambient, Modern-classical, Electronic, Downtempo, Chillout, analog textures, analog and acoustic instruments, alternative.

Nagamag:
Few words about your musical background and career?

Gregory Paul Mineeff:
I am a composer, multi-instrumentalist from Wollongong, Australia. I began my life as a musician beginning with piano but stopped to pursue the guitar and rock music. As a teenager I was obsessed with the electric guitar, fixated on the music of Jimi Hendrix, Nirvana, Foo Fighters, ACDC and Pink Floyd. Jimi Hendrix's music and the way he constructed melodies and harmonies, as well as his improvising, has always fascinated me. Along the way I became interested in music for film and classical music and began collecting and playing as many acoustic instruments as I could. Piano became a fixture in my life and I began composing simple minimal piano pieces, collecting many over the years. No matter what instrument it is, my fascination with music is always around the act of creating something new, composing and constructing a new piece of wonder. I composed my album GRIND in response to the beautiful natural surroundings of my home in Wollongong and since releasing this album have enjoyed collaborating with many artists around the world. My second full length album After Today was released in January and I am looking forward to seeing how it goes about finding its place in the world.

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

Gregory Paul Mineeff:
I have always loved music and it has always been something that just felt right to me. From the first time experiencing music from my grandmother's organ to the music classroom at school I knew it was for me. I was always into music of the 60's, 70's, 80's and early 90's with it playing constantly in my home whether it be Pink Floyd or Dire Straits. The music that really connected with me at that time was Nirvana. I loved the rawness of the music, the edginess to it, the minimalistic and simple nature of each song really resonated with me. The minimal aesthetic of those compositions influences me to this day. Music was the way I identified my place in the world as a teenager and the place I sought refuge. I made many cassette tape recordings of instrumental guitar pieces and experiments throughout this time. Following from this I loved the improvisation style of Jimi Hendrix, particularly pieces like Little Wing. His edginess and always being on the edge makes his style particularly appealing. I love the work of Nick Cave, the simplicity of the compositions and the rawness are always an inspiration. As time went on I became interested in music for film, particularly the work of Danny Elfman, and I absolutely adore Neil Young's score for the Jim Jarmusch film Dead man. I was always seeking out rawness in music and artists I felt were risking a little, pushing boundaries, which led me to the work of Bjork. Her music is always a beautiful departure from the ordinary. It also connected me to the world of electronic music and the infinite possibilities available for modern composers and musicians. Another artist I respect enormously is Radiohead and the solo work of Thom Yorke. I am endlessly fascinated by their boundless creativeness and the unique music and place they have created. Boards of Canada and the world they have created for themselves to exist is an endless source of inspiration as are the minimal piano compositions of Philip Glass. All of these artists have influenced my current music in various ways. The artist who has perhaps inspired me the most though, is Yann Tiersen. I adore his solo piano work and everything he has done, the album Skyline being my favourite with the track The Gutter a particular favourite. Ultimately, my love of music is in the act of creation and the immediacy of this construction. I absolutely love and am influenced by literature, art and music and my response to this and my own creation of art is an integral part of the process.

Nagamag:
What Are you working on at the moment (Jan. 2020)?

Gregory Paul Mineeff:
I am fascinated by vintage analog instruments, analog synthesisers, electric pianos, tape effects and acoustic pianos. and I am working on composing more solo piano pieces. My goal is to be as simple as can be while conveying a sense of melody. I am also working on performing my new album After Today live with film projection and look forward to developing this project. I always look forward to more collaborative projects too.

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?

Gregory Paul Mineeff:
Foo Fighters "Exhausted"
