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

Isabel Dumaa:
The umbrella genre for my music is pop, but I would define it as indie pop or alt-pop with little elements of folk and R&B!


Nagamag:
Few words about your musical background and career?

Isabel Dumaa:
I have been singing since practically before I could talk, and began songwriting at a young age as well. I took singing lessons throughout my childhood, and begged my parents for guitar and piano lessons so I could accompany myself and start playing live. Since day 1 I have always wanted to be a singer and pursue music. After graduating High School I moved down to LA to do music full time, and feel so grateful I get to be working every day at something I love so dearly.


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

Isabel Dumaa:
It is difficult to pinpoint my very first connection to my love of music, but there is one early memory that sticks out. I was about 5 years old when my cousin played me You Belong With Me by Taylor Swift, and I have never fallen in love with a song quicker. It immediately became my favorite song and was pretty much all I listened to for about a year. My parents bought me my first iPod shuffle about a year later and all I had on it was You Belong With Me and 4 other songs from Fearless all of which I listened to on repeat. Taylor Swift has been a huge inspiration for me growing up and throughout my career and that was where my love for her began.


Nagamag:
What would be your dream venue to play?

Isabel Dumaa:
I was raised right in the heart of San Francisco and over the years attended many concerts and shows all over the city. Every show I went to I couldn't help but picture myself on the stage someday getting to sing in my home city. Every year "Outside Lands Festival" is held in Golden Gate Park and pretty much every young person in the bay area is there. It is essentially the coachella of NorCal. Outside Lands is such a vivid part of my growing up and every year I went I couldn't help but dream and picture myself on one of those stages, getting to play for all the people standing where I stood all those times. So a definite dream venue would be to be able to headline at Outside Lands!


Nagamag:
Many artists listen to genres that they are not producing music for. Which track is your favorite that is NOT similar to yours?

Isabel Dumaa:
"Kiss Of Venus" Paul McCartney and Dominic Fike


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

Isabel Dumaa:
"The Walls Are Way Too Thin" Holly Humberstone

DEBUT STUDIO ALBUM ‘THINGS CHANGE’ OUT 29TH JULY

sx.lnk.to/thingschangePO

15th July 2022, London UK: Critically acclaimed producer turned solo artist S-X increases anticipation for his debut studio album with brand new single ‘It’s Over Now’, released today.

The fourth release from his upcoming album, ‘It’s Over Now’ is written and produced by S-X and follows a trio of successful singles from this project: ‘Locked Out’ ft. KSI (streamed over 8 million times on Spotify), ‘All Night’ featuring multi-platinum selling US rap sensation Trippie Redd and ‘Who We Are’.

The track’s music video, directed by Troy Roscoe, is full of nighttime escapism, with dark and enigmatic shots of S-X alongside the emotional sentiment of the track. Roscoe extends his repertoire as a trend-setting film director with this video, having previously worked with artists such as Stefflon Don, Kojo Funds, Giggs, Yungblud, Fredo, Chunkz.

S-X says; ‘It’s Over Now represents the true meaning of being done with a situation, whether a relationship or an addiction for example. It’s relatable to whatever the listener feels. But for me it’s about being truly done with a relationship, not allowing myself to put a single ounce of energy into that anymore. It’s over now.’

From the release of his critically acclaimed EP ‘A Repeat Wouldn’t Go A Miss’ last year to his collaborations with the industry’s biggest names including Lil Wayne, Childish Gambino, Chance The Rapper, J. Cole and Skepta; S-X’s sounds have long been shaping the industry. The release of album ‘Things Change’ in July will fully allow his voice to be truly heard, as he pushes his art into new dimensions and cements his status as an unstoppable artist in his own right. The Wolverhampton wonderkid has a producer’s ear, a pop-star’s voice, and is one of the nicest guys in the business to boot.

Meanwhile, S-X is the first A&R and production consultant for Wolves Records, the first record label to be launched by a UK football club. Woverhampton Wanderers teamed up with Warner Music UK’s Alternative Distribution Alliance (ADA), the multi-award-winning label services division to launch an ambitious and unique proposition that will unite two of the world’s biggest passions – music and football.

‘It’s Over Now’ is out now and available on all streaming platforms via BMG / RBC Records

Nieri – Body 2 Body

Categories: Audio, Pop, The Latest|Tags: , |

“Strong work in the POP genre and if you carefully listen, you can feel all the beauty of the melody and voice -nieri-. There are many reasons why you need to pay attention to this track, but one of them is the most important - this is high -quality work from real professionals in their field!” (Automatically Translated with Google Translate)

“Сильная работа в жанре Pop и если внимательно вслушаться, то можно ощутить всю красоту мелодии и голоса -Nieri-. Есть множество причин, почему нужно обратить внимание на этот трек, но одна из них самая главная — это качественная работа от настоящих профессионалов своего дела!”

-Nagamag.com

Dance pop artist Nieri is releasing his debut EP, Starshine.

www.thisisnieri.com/

Written and recorded between Los Angeles and Stockholm, the EP features five glossy, electronic pop tracks that offer a glimpse into Nieri’s life, struggles and aspirations.

The EP's first single, "Beautiful Music" is a club anthem that celebrates the pleasure of dancing the night away. The synth-forward "Face” sees Nieri confronted with the idea of bodily perfection, and the ethereal “In Our Eyes" explores the emotional challenge of “making it”.

While the title track “Starshine” is a personal song dedicated to his younger self, the highlight of the EP is “Body 2 Body”, a slinky track co-written with Swedish artist Ingrid Witt. Mixing elements of deep house with 90’s dance, the futuristic production makes this song a sweaty, dance party in outer space. With its euro influences and a flirty, catchy chorus, "Body 2 Body" will be stuck in your head long after you've left the club.

Nieri explains: “Body 2 Body" talks about the need to connect with people as a primal instinct - not necessarily sexually, but physical sensation as a form of closeness and community. In a world where almost everything is virtual, the dance floor is one of few places where we can let our inhibitions go. Music and dance have always been part of the human race, and this song celebrates the amazing connections that happen when we let our natural instincts guide us through rhythm and melody."

Anne Marie Almedal Interview on Nagamag

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

Anne Marie Almedal:
Dream pop, cinematic, indie, female vocal, scandinavian!


Nagamag:
Few words about your musical background and career?

Anne Marie Almedal:
Former lead singer of Norwegian art-pop indie band "Velvet Belly" since the mid90's Anne Marie Almedal has beguiled listeners in her near 30 year music career. Each of her five solo albums are all landmark dream-pop releases, from "female Nick Drake" nordic noir folk-pop to the more stirring electronic comeback album "We Dance Alone". Her music has been described as "sweetness multiplied, sadness tripled, her music brings you one step closer to heaven. As fantastic as sharing the last cigarette with the one you love".


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

Anne Marie Almedal:
Growing up in the lonely (but beautiful) suburban, southern coast of Norway, music was an essential escape and soul food. For a melancholic teenager, the voice and songs of other dreamy female artists had a huge impact on my own journey into songwriting and vocal delivery. Liz Fraser/Cocteau Twins, and of course, who else but Kate Bush...first time round:-)


Nagamag:
What are your favourite tracks for the new album?

Anne Marie Almedal:
There are naturally so many songs on my new album that mean such a lot to me, written and produced during the best-forgotten lockdown, where we were all faced with ”dancing alone”, and of my private experience of coping with, and recovering from, breast cancer. Yes, I know it’s a cliché, but music can really give us the magic to breathe, heal, smile, in dark times, and despite the tough background behind the songs, I´m proud to say that they are thankfully like little angels, moments of light. So happy to share to all who want to listen! As far as fave tracks, right now I´d say ”Freeze The Moment”...
A song for those inner moments, walking in the forest, lost in the now. I wanted to capture something both dream-poppy and vaguely post-industrial....something healing, magical, happy/sad to cope with some pretty cold, heavy feelings. Somewhere where my lonely scandi-noir could feel equally at home in some imaginary futuristic misty factory landscapes. Nothing beats the pure joy of expressing loneliness in a warm haze of drum machines, broken synths and shoegaze guitars!
and also the track ”Runaway Turnaround”

Coming to terms with distant memories of youth, distant love affairs,.. ” Runaway Turnaround” is like a burnt-out polaroid snapshot of all my favourite mystical 80’s melancholy synth-pop moments, wrapped with the (thankfully) wiser know-how of who I am today... Again, this song went against my insticts of seeking solace in the ”folksy”, when feeling low, and rather choosing to being energized and reinvorgated by some life-enhancing, larger-than-life synth soundscapes, and some direct, honest feelings.


Nagamag:
Many artists listen to genres that they are not producing music for. Which track is your favorite that is NOT similar to yours?

Anne Marie Almedal:
Edda Dell'Orso "Ennio Morricone Poesia Di Una Donna"


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

Anne Marie Almedal:
Cocteau Twins Heaven Or Las Vegas

Neville – VINCENT VAN GOGH

Categories: Audio, Electro Pop, The Latest|Tags: , |

“An extreme flow of emotional and pure vocals, which gives the original track of amazing dynamism and diversity! Immediately realize that in front of you is a clear hit, in which a rich rhythmic pattern, major chords and a simple, but exciting text prevail! (Automatically Translated with Google Translate)

“Экстремальный поток эмоционального и чистого вокала, который придаёт оригинальному треку потрясающей динамичности и разнообразия! Сразу осознаёшь, что перед тобой явный хит, в котором преобладает насыщенный ритмический рисунок, мажорные аккорды и простой, но захватывающий текст!”

Sofi Tukker – Kakee

Categories: Pop, The Latest, Video|Tags: , , |

-Automatic Translation with Google Translate-
The track is saturated with original rhythms, EDM melody and crazy wipe. Guitar solo resembles famous spy fighters, from which nostalgia covers a wave from head to head. We assure that the new work is -sofi tukker- will take first place in your personal charts!”

“Трек пропитан оригинальными ритмами, мелодией EDM и сумасшедшим вайбом. Гитарное соло напоминает известные шпионские боевики, от чего ностальгия накрывает волной с ног до головы. Уверяем, что новая работа -Sofi Tukker- займёт первое место в ваших личных чартах!”

-Nagamag.com

SOFI TUKKER today share their exuberant new single “Kakee,” an ode to persimmons in Brazilian Portuguese full of double entendres. The playfully seductive track opens their forthcoming second album, WET TENNIS, out April 29th on Ultra. Clocking in under two minutes, “Kakee” is a thrilling oxytocin rush with a giant hook and a juggernaut beat that is like SOFI TUKKER concentrate. All of the things that made the world fall in love with the group are turned up to eleven.

The group shares, “Kakee, which means persimmon in Portuguese and in many other languages, is a song, quite literally, about persimmons. Soph had been talking about how obsessed she is with persimmons for a long time and so she and Chacal (the Brazilian poet we have made a lot of songs with) wrote a poem about them. The lyrics literally translate to “I don’t go by car or by foot. I go by persimmon…. I’m not Sophie, I’m persimmon…. The juice of the persimmon is on my nose and on my chest, so sexy.” We started it as a techno track and then with the guitar it really took a turn. No idea what genre this is. We just know that we love it. “

The “Kakee” video was filmed in Hawaii and is full of visual double entendres that correspond with the lyrics. Persimmons are squeezed until they gush and drip everywhere culminating in an ecstatic Sophie laying in a field. It was directed by Aerin Moreno with creative direction from Amber Park and styling by Johnny Wujek who were also the team on the “Original Sin” video.

“This is one of our favorite videos we’ve made. The experience being in Kualoa Park in Hawaii was… awe. Being in that environment is so inspiring, and really gives us a sense of our beautiful insignificance (lol that’s a Sophie line of course).” shares SOFI TUKKER on the making of the video, “In the first take, Tuck started clapping and that became a fun theme throughout the video. We ran through the valleys, squeezed persimmons… squeezed tennis balls filled with persimmon juice. And it climaxes with Soph quite literally climaxing, on the top of a mountain–she turns herself on by playing the guitar on the top of the mountain, with a persimmon between her legs. It’s as absurd as the lyrics of the song.“

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

Suzanne's Band:
Country, Blues, Pop


Nagamag:
Few words about your musical background and career?

Suzanne's Band:
Suzanne has always been involved in music in some way, shape or form such as choirs, ensembles and solo singing performances. In 2016, upon the urging of a friend, she started playing guitar and it opened the door to songwriting and public performances in a band setting. In 2017, she was moved to start her own music business Suzanne's Band with the focus of writing, producing and performing songs having a vintage sound along with heartfelt understandable lyrics; something sadly lacking in today's music environment. Listeners both young and old have been drawn in to the messages and the positive vibes. In just a few short years, she has grown an impressive fan base, a thriving You Tube channel, produced two Christmas singles, an EP, two albums and been nominated into the Grammy (Recording Academy) organization which is no small feat these days. She uses one band for recording and another band for public performances. She enjoys playing classic rock, pop and country along with her originals in her home state of Texas in the United States.


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

Suzanne's Band:
I remember as a toddler how much I loved to play records and sing along. Being a dancer too, my body loves to move with music.
When I retired, I wanted to do something every day that I wouldn't ever get tired of. Music was the one thing I knew was in my soul
and that I needed to bring out into the community.


Nagamag:
Do you do anything musically outside of your business?

Suzanne's Band:
Yes, I'm involved in two different groups. I play guitar or piano every Sunday with my church band. Every Monday, I'm part of an over 50 in age and also number of people that go out to all the assisted living and over 50 in age communities in our area and perform a one hour variety music show. This brings music to those who never get to go out and hear their favorite songs any more. These folks don't have radios any more or other electronics to hear music familiar to them.


Nagamag:
Many artists listen to genres that they are not producing music for. Which track is your favorite that is NOT similar to yours?

Where You Are, is our nagamag pick from new JVNA album “Hope In Chaos”

More details:
ingrv.es/JVNAHopeInChaos

LA-based artist JVNA releases her stunning debut album “Hope In Chaos,” a deeply personal and emotive body of work with a unique sonic style drawing from pop, rock, and bass elements. The twelve-track LP explores many of her life experiences, covering a range of sometimes dark elements, including the loss of her father, guilt, love, lust, sexism, and determination. The opening track “Chaos” sets an ominous tone for the first half of the album, which represents the first, most painful stages of grief. “Where You Are” sees JVNA expressing a deep longing for lost love with cinematic sonic elements, while “Ghost” showcases a future bass style. “Sins” captures the sultry and turbulent energy of lust and questionable decisions. The first half of the album closes with the interlude “Hope,” which introduces JVNA’s movement into the healing process of grief. She tries to remember the good times of a painful relationship with “At Least It Was Fun,” while the ensuing tracks all lead up to the cathartic healing process with the epilogue “Fly.” “Hope In Chaos” is a truly beautiful and meaningful musical journey that fans of multiple genres will appreciate, whether they’re going through a tough time or just looking for a track to rock out to. Be on the lookout for album-themed “Hope In Chaos Tour”, starting on February 19. Tickets are available here.

www.jvnamusic.com/tour

California-based singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist JVNA produces electronic music that plays at the dichotomy of light and dark, bass and melody, organic and synthetic. Raised by Taiwanese immigrants, JVNA studied classical piano from the age of 6 and started writing songs when she was 11. Her studies continued at the San Francisco Conservatory of Music, where she learned to score films and video games. Initially, JVNA made fun edits and remixes of her favorite anime and video game soundtracks; her take on MapleStory’s “Login Theme” caught fire on the internet, earning half a million views in 24 hours. Her 2018 song “I’m With You,” inspired by her father’s death two years earlier, dared to dive deep into an emotional world. JVNA self-directed the song’s music video. The Follow-up single “Catch Me,” released in 2019, took JVNA on a sold-out tour across the United States. Due to the pandemic, it was canceled, and JVNA returned to the studio to focus on the album’s production. She pushed herself to incorporate more live keys, piano, and organic textures. “Hope In Chaos” is a diverse collection of styles featuring JVNA’s voice like it’s never been heard before, opening up about so much more than the standard dance floor love songs.
