Gran Noir are back! The Zurich rockers with the big hooks landed their first indie hit with the song "On and On" shortly before the Corona party: radio plays in the big stations, tons of YouTube streams, great Spotify playlists and sold-out concerts. And suddenly there was a standstill. OK. Time to devote yourself to new material: "Empty Heart" is the name of the first single from the creative phase caused by the pandemic in 2022 and is a powerful number with catchy vocal parts and a big chorus. Like «On and On», the track was created with Philippe Laffer in Basel. "The song is about my children," says singer Pascal Schulz: "They, like all children, are just annoying from time to time. But then comes the moment when the little monsters have fallen asleep, I'm standing next to the bed and despite everything I only feel love - Empty Heart is that moment."

Gran Noir sind zurück! Die Zürcher Rocker mit den grossen Hooks landete mit dem Song «On and On» kurz vor der Corona-Party ihren ersten Indie-Hit: Radioplays in den grossen Stationen, massig Youtube Streams, tolle Spotify-Playlisten und ausverkaufte Konzerte.

Und plötzlich war Stillstand.

Na jut. Zeit, sich neuem Material zu widmen: «Empty Heart» heisst 2022 die erste Single aus der pandemiebedingten Schaffensphase und ist eine druckvolle Nummer mit eingängigen Gesangsparts und grossem Refrain. Entstanden ist der Track wie schon «On and On» mit Philippe Laffer in Basel.

«Der Song handelt von meinen Kindern», sagt erklärt Sänger Pascal Schulz: «Die wie alle Kinder ab und an einfach nur nerven. Dann aber kommt der Moment, in dem die kleinen Monster eingeschlafen sind, man ich neben dem Bett stehe und trotz allem nur Liebe empfinde t - Empty Heart ist dieser Moment.»

Skinny Dippers – Night To Day

“Feelings are usually complex and covered from some kind of mystery. They may change rapidly from black to white or from "Night to Day". This Indie Pop single can reach your subconsious and help you realize what you really want in this life.”

-Nagamag.com

You're always hanging out, you're having more fun than you've ever had, but you still don't know what it means. Do you even know what you want? Your feelings for each other seem to vacillate with the rise and fall of the sun and moon.

Night To Day is about the excitement of the night and the indecision of the day. Do you tell your partner you want something more? Do you tell the you want to just be friends? Or do you just keep your feelings to yourself and see where things go? You don't want to do anything to screw up whatever this is...

SAVEN – Falling Falling Down

-Automatic Translation with Google Translate-
Air, memorable guitar sounds, clear rhythm drums and expressive vocals -saven, whose incredible timbre loving to each word. A variety of structure and memorable motive allow you to immerse yourself in a rich and deep atmosphere of Indie Rock.”

“Воздушные, запоминающиеся звуки гитары, чёткий ритм барабанов и выразительный вокал -SAVEN-, чей невероятный тембр вслушиваться в каждое слово. Разнообразная структура и запоминающийся мотив позволяют погрузиться в насыщенную и глубокую атмосферу Indie Rock.”

-Nagamag.com

“Falling Falling Down” by “Saven” is an alt-country / indie rock song. The song is about taking the wrong path without really fully understand why. It is about being in a unhealthy situation and trying to bring the unconscious reasons for your decisions to your awareness. The music and lyrics present a struggle and fall within oneself. One between sticking to a rewarding and self-fulfilling path and being enticed and distracted from it.

As the tones from the acoustic guitar slide down the neck of the guitar, it completely matches the sentiment of the song. Actually everything about the song: the guitar riff, the heavy vocals, the steel-stringed slide guitar and the drums, draws you in. The ebb and flow of the arrangement is captivating and leaves you utterly enchanted as the song finally reaches a crescendo of emotional rock magic.

This track conveys a feeling of despair, fear and avoidance. In a sense it feels like a mix between a cry for help and hopelessness. If you can relate with the lyrics: “no God will save me”, that “Heaven is fading” and that you are “Falling Falling Down” perhaps this song is for you. www.facebook.com/savenmusic/

Beau Jennings & The Tigers – I’m Reaching, Lord

“Exciting and multifaceted track with clear and deep meaning. By listening repeatedly u learn the artist’s thought. Don’t be afraid to get out of your own world and enter in the charm of “Beau Jennings & The Tigers”.”

“Волнующий и многогранный трек, светлый, чистый и очень глубокий по смыслу. С каждым новым, очередным прослушиванием вновь и вновь познаёшь авторскую мысль. Не бойтесь вылезти из своего замкнутого мира и окунитесь в очарование нового трека от -Beau Jennings & The Tigers-.”

-Nagamag.com

Norman, Okla.-based singer-songwriter Beau Jennings and his band The Tigers have released their new single “Lord, I’m Reaching” from their upcoming album Heavy Light, due out March 25 via Black Mesa Records. Click here to watch the official music video.

Melding classic blues with gripping heartland rock, “I’m Reaching, Lord” finds Jennings searching for something to hold on to while pushing through life’s uncertainties.

“What else can you do besides keep reaching? I’ve heard it said how satisfying it is to call a spade a spade, no matter what that might mean, and I think there’s a good element of that here,” Jennings says. “But there’s a spirit of defiance here too that I can really credit to The Tigers and the energy they bring. I can zone out and write a song in black and white on my own but one of my favorite things about the band is how they can blow it out and bring it up to full color.”

“I’m Reaching, Lord” is the latest track from Jennings’ upcoming full-length record, which was recorded at Cardinal Song, the studio of The Tigers bassist Michael Trepagnier, following the release of The Thunderbird and its bold acoustic reimagination, Son Of Thunderbird. The band — which is comprised of Jennings, Trepagnier, Chase Kerby, Dustin Ragland and John McCall — mix lush, layered production with the warm, retro sound of 1970s heartland rock. Alongside the upbeat, sunlit vibe of “Sunflower,” Jennings taps into some challenging and reflective moments too. “Colorado” recalls his personal pilgrimage to the state following the loss of his mother, while “Juniper” serves as a personal letter to Jennings’ own daughter.

The record follows up the band’s 2021 EP Feel the Light, which earned praise from an array of outlets including Americana UK, who noted that the release “sound[s] like classic heartland rock like Tom Petty or Jeff Tweedy, with jangly indie rock guitar… Jennings’ low croon sounds similar to Chris Isaak’s and Lyle Lovett’s if they had both decided to rock out a bit more.” His new track “I’m Reaching, Lord” follows the record’s heartfelt lead single “Sunflower,” which was featured on BBC Sounds and earned coverage from DittyTV, Americana Highways and more.

“My wife and I went on a long bike ride one summer morning a while back,” Jennings explained, shedding light on the inspiration behind the tune. “East Norman, Okla. has lots of backroads that are perfect for a long trip with rolling hills and long interrupted views of sunrises and sunsets. I remember at one point as she went ahead of me that it was a good thing, it meant I had farther to go, and I just wanted the ride to last forever. Oklahoma has a lot of problems and yet this was one of the more beautiful moments that make living here just a little bit richer. I wrote this song about as quickly as it took to sing it. I wanted to preserve that ride, that morning, that time with someone I love, and use it as a kind of introduction to the record, kind of a, ‘Welcome, come on in, get comfortable’ kind of statement.”

Released in January, Jennings also joined Rosie Thomas for a cover of Björk’s 90s track “All Is Full of Love,” which earned coverage from Pitchfork and Brooklyn Vegan among others. Jennings and Thomas are joined by Sufjan Stevens, The Shins, Iron & Wine, Alexi Murdoch, The Head and the Heart’s Charity Theilen, The Lone Bellow’s Kanene Pipkin, William Fitzsimmons, Dawn Landes, Audrey Assad, Leigh Nash, Denison Witmer, Josh Ottum, Kyshona Armstrong, Kevin Brace along with Buster, Alvie and Jeff Shoop for the collaborative track.

With nearly two decades of hard work and creative accomplishments behind him, Jennings has much to be proud of. From his time in Brooklyn during the late 2000s with his band Cheyenne to his own DIY solo work, Jennings has continued to create art that is both inspiring and thought-provoking.

One of his most celebrated projects is The Verdigris, his 2015 music and documentary film project which focused on the life of legendary cowboy, actor, writer, humorist and Oklahoma native Will Rogers. Inspired by the historic 1930s field recordings of Alan Lomax, Jennings went on a journey to locations Rogers had visited throughout his life. He recorded a song at every stop during his journey, trekking from the North Slope of Alaska, where Rogers tragically died in a plane crash, all the way back to the place of his birth in Oklahoma. The project, which featured backing vocals and banjo from Sufjan Stevens on a selection of songs, was nominated for a Heartland Emmy and aired on Public Television channels across the U.S.

Theodore – Voyage (Video)

“Theodore has combined his soft voice with a colourful palette of Ambient soundscapes, calling us to follow in his fantastic “Voyage”. Hold your breath and open the door to this high-level sound experience.”

-Nagamag.com

“Voyage”, the final part of the journey, comprises some quiet synth arrangements in an ethereal soundscape and a cinematic orchestration that leads to a floating ambience with some elegant electronic outbursts. Here is where the traveller leaves the physical world behind, a world that used to define him. Now is when he evolves into his spiritual self. The destination, time and space are yet unknown. “Voyage” is the moment of awareness; The Voyage is a travel of the mind.
