NOHA SARÉ – TALK TO ME (Video)

“Stepping cinematic, introducing quickly to an abundant emotional vocal performance surrounded by angelic harmonic notes in a minimal way and hard beats, NOHA SARÉ manages to hypnotize us deeply to her impressive vocal capabilities, which could not be able to express in such a mesmerizing way without the brilliant elegant music layering. ”

-Nagamag.com

Talk To Me is about different stages of healing. It’s about facing your own fears and the attempt to turn them into strengths. The eye-catching video alongside the song, is directed by the 24 year old director, performer and visual artist (& best friend) Izak Berman. Izak & Noha have known eachother for a long time and have developed a special bond over the years, both in their collaborations and personal life.

Noha Saré is a 24 year old singer who stands out for her powerful, yet sensitive voice. Drawing on various genres, her music can not be classified into one specific category; Noha’s music tends to swing like her moods. She loves to play with contradictions in her personality and likes to dive into them and explore them. Both in her music and in her photography and videography. Her promising debut single Talk To Me is a good example of this: a soulful, authentic sound lined with elements of alternative R&B and electro pop.

Born in Amsterdam and raised by parents who are both artists, Noha Saré grew up surrounded by art. From an early age, she and her brother Marius (who is a multi-instrumentalist and composer) started to perform and make music together. They collaborate on songwriting and Marius co-produces her music together with producer Tom Bachmann. Over the last years an inspiring collaboration and strong friendship has evolved between the three of them.

Blue Psyche – Common Theme (Spotify)

“Blue Psyche with their new single Common Theme under Peace Dragon Records imprint, introduce us through their early funky vibes to more loungish atmosphere, with an elegant minimal groove and sensual abundant vocals, music that flows softly in a good laid back mood. ”

-Nagamag.com

The music of London based psychedelic indie band Blue Psyche takes you on a journey of colourful astral sonics that resonate with the dark and experimental ambience of Trip-Hop.

With influences from the likes of Morcheeba and Portishead, their' debut single, "Common Theme" emerges from the obscurity of trip hop, mutating in vivid harmony, warm, reverb drowned vocals with florid guitar and keys, making the distinctive sound of Blue Psyche.

Celest Lamberti, lead singer/songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and producer paired with Otto Kampa, saxophonist, drummer, and multi-instrumentalist, and Flynn Mulcahy, lyricist, poet and bass player make for a great listen. Theo Hayes also features on this song, playing keys.

Mathien – So (If I Can’t Have Your Love) (Spotify)

“Mathien and Sam Hudgens with their new single -So (If I Can't Have Your Love)- under WURLITZER CROWLEY imprint invite us into a lush groove of funky beats and harmonies, with vocals performance been soulful and elegant, hitting in the right places both in music layering and heart. While it gives you a laid back listening experience, not misses parts that you will feel the energy inside you to move and groove. ”

-Nagamag.com

Sam had made this beat in 2017 and played it for me during a session in Evanston. He was staying with his mom for a week and didn't have anything but a guitar and his laptop when he made it, so the entire beat was dozens of layers of nylon strings over a drum machine loop. Even in its early sketches it was so good, I told him I wanted it but it seemed like he was writing to it. Fast forward to this September he stopped by my studio to record some ideas, and he ended up playing the beat for me again, it was exactly the same, "I've been stuck on this beat for years now" he said.

After he left I wrote "If I can't have your love" to it and sent him a demo of it that night, and he called me freaking out (happy). The next day he came back at 6:30 am to help finish it. we decided Sam would sing the first verse and I would do the second, but we're both on all 3 of the hooks. Then he played his Sax on it. I wrote a little instrumental bridge section to break up the loop a little, and added some additional synth and guitar/bass... I figured I'd send it over to Brooklyn so Devon Yesberger (Cory Wong, Lohaith, Caleb Hawley,Grace Kelly) could play piano on it. It came back and that piano part you hear that opens the track was actually at the end of what he sent but it was so striking I threw it on the front. Took 3 years but the track is finished.

Kovic ~ Giving Up ~ Feat. Dancer Kaycee Rice (Video)

“A heartwarming song by Kovic which trough beautiful keys and sweet grooves, daydream us with his voice. Kovic please us more through this memorable video thanks to the great performance of dancer Kaycee Rice.”

-Nagamag.com

Mark Kovic (Kovic) is an English singer-songwriter and producer, born and raised in Brentwood, Essex, to a Serbian father and English mother. Known for his baritone vocal and big chorus’, his first momentum-accelerating single titled “Drown” was released in 2017, produced by Jonny Coffer (Beyoncé, Emile Sandé) & Mark Crew (Bastille, Rag N Bone man), and co-written with goliath songwriter Jamie Scott (Jesse Ware, Ed Sheeran, One Direction, Justin Bieber).

The track was picked up by the head music supervisor at EA and playlisted on the FIFA 18 soundtrack, catapulting Kovic into the biggest gaming placement of the year, notably joining the top 50 viral Spotify charts across a number of EU countries, and gaining millions of streams within months of release.

The debut album for Kovic is due to be released later this year, and will feature a contrasting combination of songs ranging from soulfully haunting balad, to summer infused pop. Among an A-star list cast of creative collaborators, it will also feature a number tracks self-produced and written alongside rising talent and brother Ben Kovic.

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.”

-Nagamag.com

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. ditto.fm/laylow-suchy

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"
