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

Ryan Flynn:
The genres that better describe the music style would be Synth Pop, Indie Pop, and Indie Electronic.


Nagamag:
Few words about your musical background and career?

Ryan Flynn:
Originally begun as an experimental side project while in film school, ryan flynn has since evolved into a perpetual orb-praising space pop venture. It was in Rochester, NY that ryan flynn established his signature funky synth pop sound, solidified by the release of an eponymous EP in 2019 with widespread praise from the local community.
In 2020, ryan flynn took to the road with his Moog synthesizer, writing and performing improvisational pieces inspired by the scenery across the country.

Currently, ryan flynn is focusing on writing and releasing new tunes such as "Seems Like Yesterday," "Pressure," and "Outside" alongside creating tasteful visuals to accompany the releases.


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

Ryan Flynn:
My first connection to music was certainly through my parents love for music. I was consistently surrounded by great music and was fortunate to have a piano in our home. No one else could play, but I'm pretty sure it was just there when we bought our house on Long Island. I would fool around and eventually grew to love the instrument! Once high school hit, I found myself writing and performing in a metal band with some great friends. I'd say with all of those things coming together, this was my pathway into music.


Nagamag:
Do you have any plans to follow the release of the latest single, "Outside?"

Ryan Flynn:
Yes! We have a music video for "Outside" coming out December 16th. For the music video, I've combined and edited the works of two amazing artists together; Micah Buzan, who does the beautiful animation, and Taryn Elliot, who does the amazing landscape filmography. The combination of the two really vibes with the the track and I can't wait for people to connect the visuals with the track!


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?

Ryan Flynn:
Steely Dan "Hey Nineteen"


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

Ryan Flynn:
Tame Impala Let It Happen

The Lovepools – White Lies & Palm Trees (Video)

“Take your eyes off the phone and look around with a clean gaze. Do not forget who we are inside. There is a lot of deception around, and this is not a reason to become part of the whole world. We are unique, we are intelligent, we can become brilliant!”

“Уберите взгляд от телефона и с чистым взглядом посмотрите по сторонам. Не стоит забывать кто мы внутри. Вокруг много обмана, и это не повод стать частью целого мира. Мы уникальны, мы разумны, мы можем стать гениальны!”

-Nagamag.com

The group starts their track, “White Lies & Palm Trees” with singer, Anthony Shea’s mournful voice singing over his quiet acoustic guitar. Like a head-on collision, the song and video simultaneously explode into synth-pop sounds and visuals filling one with a similar nostalgia of playing on their first Super Nintendo.

With a cinematic visual style comparable to “Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World”, the singer wakes from an obvious hangover and leads the viewer down a rabbit hole of temptations: masked girls, drug deals, bags of money and unsigned record contracts.

Directed by psychedelic visionary Javier Burgos, partnered with visual artist Matthew Lyon, under their company, Apeship Entertainment, “White Lies & Palm Trees” features a past, present and future of The Lovepools story told through a parallel universe of the band acting and performing in live action while fighting as their respective 8-bit characters in retro arcade gameplay down Hollywood Blvd. The video was edited by Ken Koller who is known for his editing work with Nicki Minaj, Asher Roth and Patrick Stump.

The Lovepools previous single, “See You In The Funny Papers” was featured on the Season 9 premiere of Showtime’s “Shameless”. Most groups would have followed up a “Shameless” placement with a rock single of a similar nature. The Lovepools however, are no one-trick pony. Instead, they choose to ride gleefully on a horse with no name.

Dance Yourself Clean (feat. Lizzy Land) – Been Too Long [Official Audio] (Video)

“The perfect song to start your day with! Sweet upbeat vocals and delicate synthpop melodic lines in -Been Too Long- by -Dance Yourself Clean feat Lizzy Land- who knows who to tell a music story.”

-Nagamag.com

For their new song “Been Too Long”, Dance Yourself Clean teamed up with Lizzy Land to bring her ethereal vocals to their unique approach to indie-pop music reminiscent of The Naked And The Famous and CHVRCHES. A thumping bass line and kick create a solid rhythm section that enigmatic synth pads and stabbing pianos soar over. Lizzy’s crooning voice sings about the relatable feeling of missing a special someone from her past.

Dance Yourself Clean started in Seattle (2013) as an indie dance party that grew into the first touring dance party in North America. After moving to Los Angeles to expand the party and create their own record label (Lights & Music Collective) and producing for other artists for years, “DYC” decided to turn their party into a music project. Releasing original music and remixes using the party’s moniker “Dance Yourself Clean”.

RUNAE – Let the Werewolf Out (Spotify)

“With a deep dark electronic sound and a distinct delicate voice this synthpop single from a new entrant artist is a highly related song given the fact it correlates with the need of people to let their mind go while they freely dance during this restrictant period”

-Nagamag.com

Let The Werewolf Out is a song about letting loose, being crazy and letting go of all frustrations. We sometimes find it easier to act like this when we are in a disguise- like at Halloween. This is why I see the the upcoming occasion of Halloween as a perfect time to let the Werewolf out dancing in the streets! For a long time I have imagined this picture inside my head of a large group of people dancing closely together in the streets to celebrate that we have won the battle against corona! Hopefully this will happen one day, and until then I hope you will dance to my song at home, inside your head, or whereever else it's possible, and just let go of whatever you need to let go of.

I write songs about duality and the hidden, and I am inspired by the cycles of nature, and how they affect the ever-changing minds of people. My artist name RUNAE also bares this double meaning. It stems from the Nordic name, Runa, which means "to flow" and secret love", and I like to see this as a symbol of the flow of nature and all the hidden stories and secrets we all carry within- two elements that affect human beings from the outside and the inside.

Synth Pop

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

Silona:
Dream pop, Indie, synth pop.

Nagamag:
Few words about your musical background and career?

Silona:
As a young adult I was a vocalist in choirs and acapella group. Not long until I formed my own group named "Intonica" which had glorious success in the European choir scene. At 2009 the group of five singers (including myself) won grand prize in the international Musica Mundi’s choir games. While harmonies and vocal technics had always been great friends of mine, it could never measure to the comfort I find in creating my own sound, melody and lyrics. In February 2018 I have finally released the first song of the debut EP - Immortal. In February 2020 the entire EP is set to be unveiled with the last single's 'Goodbye Friend' release.After two years of performing and touring with the Immortal EP, nowadays I am concentrated on producing new music.

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

Silona:
I was probably 4 years old pressing notes on our home organ, figuring out how to play out loud the melodies I have in my mind. I would usually sing them to myself, then find the notes place on the instrument. Not much have changed, since then.

Nagamag:

You mentioned a new song release in February 2020. Could you tell us more about this song?

Silona:
'Goodbye Friend' ... symbolically enough seals my debut EP with desperation of an unsung goodbye. When I first wrote it, the first part that came to my mind both melodically and lyrically was the chorus. I remember sitting in my apartment, crying the loss of my dearest pet friend who has just died. I still to this day have the recording of me singing and playing the guitar of that same heart tearing chorus. Five years later I confronted myself with these emotions and rewrote the whole song, though singing about a whole other individual. Just as we are all immortal, at the same time all have an end.

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?

Silona:
Ars Antiqua De Paris "Reis Glorios"

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

Silona:
Mazzy Star "Into Dust"
