SONARPILOT PRESENTS – THE MIRAGE PROJECT
A collection of six stunning fractal films with bespoke electronic soundtracks, appearing monthly online from May to December 2020 at: www.themirageproject.com
The Mirage Project is a series of six short films that explore a strange parallel universe of hypnotic beauty.
The movies, each eight to ten minutes long, dive into different worlds, ranging from futuristic cities to deserted machine planets. All of the journeys circle around fundamental human questions: What is our place in the cosmos? What promises and threats does our future hold?
The videos and their soundtrack have been created by Swiss electronic musician Sonarpilot in cooperation with film producer Roger Mäder. “Electronic music has a long history of using visuals as a background on the dancefloor or at live events.
Usually this content is more of a by-product, poorly produced and not something you’d really want to look at”, explains Michael Moppert, the creative head Sonarpilot. “We wanted to craft something more: An immersive experience with visuals that are equally well crafted as the music.”
The whole production took 18 months. “We were working on the music and the visuals in parallel, to make sure that both elements support each other in an optimal way,” explains Michael. The process was a real challenge: “We were using software that generates highly complex fractals.
Some of the formulas took a week to render one minute of video,” Roger explains. Once the visual raw material for a world was generated, Michael started to edit the video and, at the same time, write the music. “It was our vision to create something like the concept albums of the 1970’s”, says Michael.
“I grew up with these beautiful records, with artwork and music that supported each other. We wanted to do something similar, using today’s digital technology”. The result are six different journeys into strange worlds, carefully edited and arranged with a soundtrack that matches perfectly.
The first video ‘City In The Sky’ appearing online at www.themirageproject.com. Subsequent mirage videos will be released monthly from July, through to December.
Each mirage’s soundtrack will also be simultaneously released as a single, available via Spotify, Apple Music, Bandcamp and all leading digital music platforms.
Running Ahead is an original by Any Gama. It’s the first song we ever rehearsed, performed and recorded. A sweeping dynamic jazz fusion number, reminiscent of Snarky Puppy’s “Lingus”, it’s always our show opener and it always gets the crowd going. This time we took it to Bunker Studios in Brooklyn NY and recorded it live with 14 musicians, including a horn section powerhouse for which we collaborated with our friends from all-brass band AntiMatterHorns. The mixing and mastering was done by 14 times Grammy Award winning sound engineer Andreas K. Meyer.
Any Gama is a New York based, internationally faced, multicultural jazz fusion and world music group. We believe in speaking to everyone in the world with the language of music, and creating a conversation in that language using the tradition of jazz improvisation. We bring a message of peace and unity, because as long as we can all enjoy music and respect our cultural similarities and differences through it, we are all equal as human beings on this planet.
Hear Me Out is about being in a relationship, wanting to spend eternity with someone yet sometimes you need to spend time apart to heal and reflect, so you don’t come back and start to shout.

Waiting Space – ‘Cocoon’ [Official Video Feat. Drone Footage of Waterford City, Ireland, April 2020] (Video)
Starting with a gentle piano progression, before a swelling-evolution into a hybrid of electronics and acoustics, rising towards a crescendo, this beauty neoclassical influenced theme will unfold your best emotions and release them out, while been nostalgic in harmonic delivery succeed to reset you in a positive outlook for what it comes from now on.
Few words about Waiting Space:
‘Waiting Space’ is an audio & visual project – and the alias of Irish musician and creator, Chris Falconer.
Through a D.I.Y. process that is enabled by contemporary technology, as ‘Waiting Space’, he creates self-recorded/self-produced songs – characterised by dynamic vocals and cinematic instrumentals – typically blending programmed-electronics & live-instrumentation. Each piece of musical-output is then ‘complemented’ by visuals which Falconer independently creates in response – including artwork, animations, and short films.
‘Waiting Space’ began in 2013, as a side project for Falconer – who is also the vocalist of the Irish indietronica band, Ghetto Amaretto. The project was initially a platform for musical ideas that ‘did not fit’ Ghetto’s catalogue – but when that project subsequently went on an extended hiatus, Waiting Space became an equal-focus for Falconer. The project also fit a mid-20s change-in-circumstances, as he found himself increasingly confined to recording in domestic settings, and with a reduced, irregular schedule in which to create music (as his artistic-output was forced to compete with his full-time architecture-industry occupation).
The project became a catalyst for Falconer to learn more about the technical aspects of music-making, recording & producing (elements he had been relatively sheltered from in previous projects as a solely a vocalist) as well as learning news skills in video-production, to create the ‘appropriate’ visuals to match these sounds & words.’

REUEL “Human Spirit” Co-Composer Aidin Ashoori

An emotive skilled performance which through its visual that comes along with the delivered video goes deeper, right in the heart, releasing out your best emotions and activate the passion for life.
Few words about Reuel:
Reuel first caught the ears of the pop world in 2018 with album of iconic themes from Classical literature reimagined for solo piano, appropriately titled Classical. The album featured “‘Für Elise’ as You’ve Never Heard It” (-Blogcritics) and rendition of “Tchaikovsky’s Piano Concerto No. 1 in B-Flat minor” (video premiered on AMFM Magazine).
He followed later that year with a holiday themed album First Snow, featuring the original title track “a delicate, haunting tune with sweet string arpeggiations and whispery, lush vocals” (-Parade Magazine) that “updates his classic piano training, creating an approachable take on sophisticated instrumental.”(-Popdust)
In 2019, he released Transformations, an album of originals. On the single “Polarized” the video finds Reuel, “giving his all as he delight us with this perfect blend of modern and classic, almost like Ludovico Einaudi and Pendulum teamed up and put a song, this would be pretty much the result.” (-Vents Magazine)
Bellsavvy – Queen of My Mind
Bellsavvy is a pop singer/songwriter with a strong attitude and musical identity. Based in London and raised in Brazil, the artist knows how to combine her latin roots and European influences to create a unique sound unlike any other. Encouraged by her mother who was a well-known pop artist in the 80’s, Bellsavvy always knew music ran deep through her veins. Even during her time as an actress and professional model, she couldn’t deny the undeniable connection she had to songwriting and performing and eventually took a leap of faith into exploring her true calling as a solo artist. With strong vocals, catchy toplines and a powerful edgy-pop style, Bellsavvy has a lot to say in her art.
Starting her career with MTV Brazil singing on the show “Studio Acesso Girls MTV”, Bellsavvy won over the hearts of over 1.8 million live viewers who all voted for her performance. Following her time on MTV, she was catapulted into the limelight, landing roles in movies, musicals and numerous musical projects around Europe.
Her debut single under the name Bellsavvy, narrates her own life experiences with the modelling industry and the devastating effect it can have on your mind and body. Following a successful modelling career, Bellsavvy’s body began to change and she suddenly started being rejected over and over again by casting agents. They would shame her for her change in weight and appearance and the constant denials quickly took its toll on the singer, brainwashing her into believing that her body was no longer good enough. These negative thoughts resulted in a loss of self-confidence and self-love and Bellsavvy soon had a mental breakdown. No longer recognizing herself in the mirror, she turned to songwriting to help her pull through. “Queen of My Mind” is her uplifting and self-empowering anthem about overcoming these inner battles, realising who you are, accepting it and understanding it, in order to truly be at one with yourself. She confides, “Queen of My Mind is a very personal, deep and emotional song. I wrote it about three years ago after a mental breakdown I had at the very end of my modeling career. I want others to feel the power we have when we love ourselves. Self-esteem, self-love and self-acceptance are the most powerful things we can have in us. It changes everything.” The songwriter has successfully crafted a song to show others that even when you hit rock bottom, there is always a light at the end of the tunnel and with a bit of time and healing we can become the queen of our minds.
Produced by Billboard HOT 100 producer David Lei Brandt (Lady Gaga), the compelling pop song is all about self-confidence, self-love and ultimately about becoming the “queen of your own mind”. The bold new single features confident vocals, determined beats and courageous lyrics, while soaking up influences from other fearless female pop artists such as Lady Gaga, Brittney Spears and Demi Lovato. Along with elements of 80’s pop, such as Depeche Mode, Bellsavvy is able to concoct an infectious sound, putting her distinct stamp on it.
The dramatic visuals for “Queen of my Mind” give a deeper insight into Bellsavvy’s experiences, while delivering it through a more playful and fantastical representation. Beginning with the singer receiving negative texts from her modelling agents, we see her go through all the emotions that come in hand with a mental breakdown. From the sadness, confusion and anger to ultimately ending up blossoming and becoming stronger than she’s ever been before and evolving into the queen of her mind. Every detail of the video holds meaning, with Bellsavvy paying tribute to her latin roots, both through costume and set design, while the choreography is crafted to symbolise different emotions. The high energy video shows the damage that body shaming can cause, but it also signifies the importance of discovering your true self and feeling confident in your own body. Emphasising how the female body isn’t universal, we see the dancers dressed in haute couture for curvy women, shining light on finding your inner warrior and being proud of who you are.
Bellsavvy hopes to use her inspiring story to help people in need, using honest and authentic lyrics to tell her story and connect with listeners on a deeper level. Her music has been hugely supported by LGBTQ+ communities around the world – a community who can empathise with the discriminations that she has endured. With the goal to encourage others to feel strong, beautiful and uplifted, no matter what anyone else tells you, Bellsavvy is on a mission and no one can get in her way.
Harry Nathan – Frontin’ Me [Official Music Video]
Just recently we were treated to the lo-fi psychedelic sounds of ‘Sweet Release’ by Australian artist Harry Nathan. That single also came with word of his upcoming sophomore ep and this week he is giving us the next taste of that ep with this chilled late-night groove, ‘Frontin Me’.
Harry Nathan delivers another fine example of his smooth lounge / disco house inspired music that washes over you in a warm nostalgic flow; imagine the bright neon lights passing you buy as you cruise through the streets of Los Angeles on a warm summer’s night.
“The song was recorded into a 1984 SONY M-10 microcassette recorder. I wasn’t really sure what I was singing, I was just jamming and mumbling, stream of consciousness kind of thing. When entering this kind of trance, my lyrics tend to reflect unsurfaced emotions, and it wasn’t until after I had finished recording that I realised the song was about people that are fake, putting up a façade trying to impress all the time.” – Harry Nathan
To help bring this track to life Harry teamed up with a few of his mates recently to shoot a quirky visual accompaniment. As Harry explains below, he did have a general idea going into this shoot but like all great things it took on a life of its own and went in a completely different direction…
Music Video: https://youtu.be/I_AZCOhTOPE
“We made the video with our mates, actors Odeya Rush, Ryan Lee and Christian Valderrama.The original idea was for me to perform the song, though it quickly evolved on the fly to me being on an ambiguous red carpet, being interviewed by Tammy. I entered a trance that took me back to my fourth-grade sleepover.” – Harry Nathan
‘Frontin Me’ is available everywhere now via French tastemaker label, Kitsuné.

March and June – B2K
Action and reaction. Two forces encountered anywhere in the physical world are translated on a more subtle level with a single word: karma. The very foundation for the reality we build with every action we take.
With B2K (short for Back To Karma), the March & June project finds a way to define karma in the most musical way possible. Placed on the deeper side of electronic music, where a more nostalgic Sam Smith would turn Disclosure-like dusty bass-lines into shivers down an emotional spine, B2K has the power of moving one’s mind into the ocean of pure presence.
Few words about the artist:
March & June is a new music project which combines different energies and vibes.
Behind March and June there is one artist who performs as a producer, songwriter and mix engineer. Born in June, his personality traits are deeply reflected in his music. Duality, moods, feelings, all these can be felt in his music. He’s not aiming to show off using his real name, yet only to assemble his emotions and life experiences. Music is the main character, not himself as an individual.
Throughout the years, he has produced a lot of tracks for many artists all over the world.
He has perfected his craft during the last 15 years, collecting under his belt no less than 3 No 1 tracks and numerous top 10 and top 45 records.
Many of his successful records are the result of collaborations with Grammy winning producers and engineers such as Tom Coyne, Chris Gehringer, Alex Psaroudakis and Luca Pretolesi. Working in Germany, Sweeden, Canada, UK and Eastern Europe got him record deals with Sony Music, Universal, and BMG and other big music labels. As of now, he is a prolific R’n’B, Trap, Neo Soul, Pop, Dance, Garage, Funk, Deep House and Disco music producer.
All the music he’s ever listened to has influenced him in one way or another, especially the 80s and 90s sound.
Taught by his father how to play the drums at the age of 7, he fell in love with this instrument. In a chaotic world, he is constantly looking for a warm sound which comes from the positive as well as peaceful places and people. He’s also looking for freedom and mood. The perfect mood.
The pop music influence can be felt when collaborating with other artists from this genre.
March and June project will be shared with the voices that he genuinely loves, not aiming for the spotlights.
Ombr – Leaving
Leaving is a chillout downtempo track which through his beautiful arp harminics and soft drums put you into a state of daydreaming and increasing hope for the future.

Mr. Dawzo travels back in time to the ’80s with the instrumental Synthwave Anthem Hypergalactic Overdrive. The right retro vibes coming along with a good synthwave video and is hard to resinst its positive vibes. Timeless!
About the artist:
Mr. Dawzo is a breath of fresh air within the electronic community. The San Diego resident has been crafting a sound rooted mostly in the digital world, with computer generated vocals and Retrowave instrumentation galore. It has been a wild ride for the up-and-coming producer, who has moved across the experimental spectrum of EDM production to nail a style that is all his own while bringing the electronic community back to its roots. Chords that seem ripped from an Atari console are captured with the energy of an early Black Sabbath record. While Mr. Dawzo sticks to his guns, he never limits himself and he’s always seeking out new and innovative sounds.
With the debut of an ambitious new single, Hypergalactic Overdrive, his Synthwave muscles get to flex with boundless potential. An upbeat melody with a tropical undertone, the song feels fresh yet familiar, something Mr. Dawzo has looked to perfect in recent years. Man created everything we utilize in music and the digital soundscape, so the emotional core has always been a point of emphasis for him during this process. Hypergalactic Overdrive builds off his debut five-track EP beautifully, and establishes Mr. Dawzo’s name firmly in the scene for years to come!
Remember when we were kids and didn’t see color? A song meant to bring everyone together during these tough times of racial tension.
I can’t breathe
I can’t breathe
I can’t breathe
This a (r)evolution (i)n (o)ur (t)ime everybody’s fighting
change coming, YES!
that’s why it’s an acronym for riot
Everybody has a voice don’t you dare stay silent
if you say nothing you are an accessory to violence
let these words dry the tears of my people who are crying we can bring back hope but not people that are dying
This is what happens when the people you’ve oppressed ask for change in a country that they built but you ignored and deny it
This for Sandra Bland, George Floyd, and every single family police brutality has intervened in and destroyed
couple bad cop couple can’t define all you other boys so every good COP needs to stand up and make noise
Black, white, asain doesn’t matter cause we can’t avoid so let’s all come together join hands and yes get annoyed at people who believe racism makes sense in a country built off minority slave work employed
see nobodies born racist man it’s something you learn
Deep rooted in your brain from the day of your birth
I think it’s time that we repair All of the bridges we’ve burned
And let love out of our hearts onto cheeks we turn
Spread love, show love, lets get rid of this curse,
Don’t wait for anyone to act man you go first
400 years wasted let’s get rid of this hurt cause that’s the only way we’ll ever see peace on earth
I can’t breathe
I can’t breathe
I can’t breathe
Change is what we need
Cut me open, cut you open Red’s the color every single human beings bleeds,
Let’s come together cops citizens and in between and rally for the rights of everybody in humanity
Black, blue, white, green,
Playing for the seam the team
I’m not MLK but boy that doesn’t mean I Can’t dream
Black lives matter shouldn’t anger you or make you scream all lives matter cause we aren’t treated equally
Remember when we were kids and didn’t see no color and when we played in kindergarten and I called you my brother
Then we grew up and they taught us we should hate on each other even though
We one in the same and we all came from our mothers
I hope y’all understand
Hate is not a trait it was learned man
Equality is the quality we need inside this earth man
Give and receive it’s the karma that you earn man
I can’t breathe
I can’t breathe
I can’t breathe
I can’t breathe
I can’t breathe
I can’t breathe

Starla Edney – Queen of Hearts (by Monoir)
Travelling at the speed of sound is something Thrace Music is really good at. This and the passion for discovering cultural connections between countries separated by long distances have built upon the Romanian record label for quite a few years now. And its latest release comes to strengthen this feeling.
Starla Edney took her native island vibe to a wider audience with a handful of songs. Yet the collaboration started with Monoir, translated into Devil Eye, brought her the well deserved international fandom.
Queen Of Hearts connects the sensual tones from Starla Edney’s voice, born on the tiny island of Guam in the middle of the Pacific ocean, with Thrace’s unmistakable sound signature. The soft tropical beats and subtle Indian allusions emphasize on a broken love story that has never sounded so nostalgic. The hot summer days never seemed so close.
Starla Edney is an international singer and song-writer from the island of Guam. Signed with Thrace Music in Europe, she’s becoming the next European sensation. She has lived in many countries all over the world, and currently resides in Italy.
ImButcher – Drift Away
Driving with an unstoppable air of integrity and artistry combined, Vancouver’s ImButcher is set to to kick off 2020 with a brand new album of beautifully immersive, profoundly engaging songs.
Bringing together a plethora of original tracks crafted throughout the past twelve months, the album ‘Rewind’ showcases ImButcher’s incomparable creativity alongside an unwavering professionalism. His finely tuned skill for sound design meets with a clear passion for music, fusing elements of electro pop with deep house in a seamless, hypnotic fashion. The 18-strong collection proves as entrancing as it is exotic, nostalgic, and brilliantly refreshing.
An innovator in his field by all accounts, ImButcher has put together a playlist fit for the late night festival stages as much so as the all-night private gatherings and even the long commute. From pristine audio craftsmanship, to thoughtful, deeply human subject matter, with captivating melodies and stunning build-ups, the album’s use of contrast allows each and every track to offer its own compelling drop into euphoric intensity.
Offering subtle hints of influence from a broad range of big names, ImButcher’s love for the likes of Depeche Mode, New Order contrasts powerfully with his connection to contemporary rock acts like Muse. Faultlessly uniting unusual chord patterns with satisfying melodic developments, introducing a number of sincere and memorable vocalists, each composition on the project works hard to deliver its own moment of utter escapism for the listener.
Ever unique in his process, ‘Rewind’ highlights an eclectic yet clearly heartfelt and emotive way with songwriting. From the production details to structural and lyrical choices, every moment adds soulful intention to the sound, effectively elevating ImButcher above the vast majority of his peers. There’s an intricate and considerate method of artistry to his work, and for all of these reasons, the new album seeks to boldly transcend that which came before.
Phil Good – Everything’s Good
Elektra Records signee and Los Angeles-based singer/songwriter Phil Good has returned with his latest single “Everything’s Good”.
“Even though I’m sarcastically saying that ‘everything’s good’ in the song, I think it’s important to be optimistic and remind yourself and those around you that things could always be much worse,” shared Phil. “You’re still here, reading this on your phone, maybe on the couch or the toilet.. who knows. But you’re alive and breathing and that alone is pretty ‘everything’s good’ right now.”
“Everything’s Good” follows Phil’s single and video “Living With No One”, which premiered on Variance Magazine in April. Earlier this year, Phil was featured on “Stuck On You”, the lead single off GRAMMY® Award-winning producer RAC’s new album Boy. Additionally, Phil released an official remix of his track “Do You Ever?” from the producer.
Last Fall Billboard announced Phil Good’s Elektra Records signing, and shared his major label debut single and music video “Wonder”. Phil’s follow-up “Do You Ever?” and its accompanying visual were premiered by Ones To Watch, who praised his “remarkable ear for tasteful synths.” Phil closed out 2019 with “Put It All On Me” which Lyrical Lemonade premiered, declaring, “Phil delivers an extremely catchy hook with his fun, charismatic energy; making it almost impossible to get out of your head.” Converting audiences to fans on the road, Phil recently supported Jaymes Young on his Happiest Year North America Tour, and joined labelmate Tones and I on select United States tour dates.
Resistance Is Holy by Steven Blane
Steven Blane is a Pop-Americana Jazz infused Singer-Songwriter in the style of Leonard Cohen, Billy Joel, Neil Young, Tom Waits, Billy Bragg and Neil Diamond
He is inspired by Elvis, Roy Orbison and Chris Isaac and plays guitar, ukulele and piano. He self-produces his work and gigs constantly in NYC and South Florida.
During this Corona Virus Pandemic, he has been journaling his experience by writing and producing songs/videos of his take on the pandemic. One of his lyrics was featured in an article in Vanity Fare.
Among his most recent releases are a cover of Neil Young’s “After the Goldrush,” a song version of Robert Frost’s “Stopping by the Woods on a Snowy Evening” and Alfred Noyes’ classic poem “The Highwayman,” a Passover EP, a chill electro-pop track entitled “Dumbo” and an inspirational pop ballad called “Fly Again.”
Blane just released a five-song acoustic EP entitled “Dancing With The Angles.” it is a full-on acoustic guitar-driven fiddle-filled Americana project.
He also produced a brand new album, entitled “Sweet Dreams” which features eleven tracks of chill electro jazz-infused pop.
In 2019 he released a Hanukkah EP as well as a brand new Christmas song, First Christmas! The six song EP, “Hanukah” includes five traditional Hanukkah songs with new English interpretations and a song entitled “A Little Light” which he wrote years ago, when he was a Hebrew School teacher.
In the style of so many Jewish songwriters who have written wonderful Christmas songs, “First Christmas” is about the very first time you bring your partner home to meet family and friends. Blane also produced a video for “First Christmas.” FIRST CHRISTMAS VIDEO.
That’s not Blane’s first foray into writing Christmas songs. His 2015 recording of “We’re Gonna Light the Lights Tonight” is another joyful musical celebration of the holiday season.
Clearly on a Keto charged roll, Blane has produced a brand new album, entitled “Sweet Dreams” which will be released in Jan., 2020. It features eleven tracks of chill electro jazz infused pop.
He also has a five song acoustic EP in the can. Entitled “Dancing With The Angles,” it is full-on acoustic guitar driven fiddle filled Americana.
Another recent album, “I Walk Alone,” is a collection of songs that Blane wrote and produced. He played all the instruments, recorded, mixed and mastered everything. It is an album comprised 60’s Rock & Roll, jazz tinged story songs.
The Huffington Post wrote, “Stylistically, Blane fits in the Americana category. But there’s more going on in his music than simply Americana. There’s a pop influence in there, along with a 1950’s rock vibe that gives his sound a unique signature. It’s much different from the usual run-of-the-mill stuff most bands turn out today.”
Of Blane’s previous recent album “So New York,” Seattle PI wrote, “So New York is grand! The album is full of vintage jazz/pop aromas giving off tantalizing wisps of elusive familiarity similar to the heady music of the ’40s and ’50s. Steven Blane’s voice is deliciously deluxe, full of lush tones.”
Prior to that Steven produced an album entitled “Motel Blue.” That album was recorded in Nashville and Produced by Blane. It features amazing Rachel Horter on many of the songs, fantabulous Fiddler Ross Holmes, Bass Player Kevin Hailey and Drummer Frank Levatino. “I’m so proud of that album. It’s just so real- organic- everything done in one take.”
Prior to that, Steven released four other albums. “I Confess” was produced by White Heart core member Billy Smiley and recorded in Nashville, and his Lake Worth, Florida recorded-in-a-shed album, “The Shed Sessions” received excellent reviews and airplay on Radio Stations across the country.

MONOIR & JFMee & Ameline – Love Me
Like all the Thrace Music releases, Love Me respects the same rule: the more you listen to it, the more you get hooked on the groove. With the song mood set by Ameline’s sensual voice and Monoir’s warm pads wearing his uniquely shaped Balkanic influences, one can expect the same level of success as their previous collaboration, Midnight In Norway. Only this time, they join forces with JFMee’s strong voice, adding a new layer of deepness to the song. Call it Arabic Deep House, call it Oriental Electronic Dance Music, you’ll surely put it on repeat this summer.
Cristian Tarcea aka Monoir is the name behind huge hits like The Violin Song, Lost In Instabul and Sugar & Brownies. A master in combining Eastern folk influences with modern dance grooves, Monoir started his own record label, Thrace Music. Thrace is a musical project that brought together fresh names with a huge potential.

Runaway – Original Song by Svea Lyon (Video)
Runaway is a song which total produced and performed from Svea Lyon speaking about of running away with your soul mate with her warm soft vocals that will tickle your ears.
Few words about Svea Lyon:
Had it not been for a man with an American flag eye patch and an acoustic guitar Svea Lyon (Suh-vay-uh) (Lee-own) may have never started singing. Mr. Woody was her first-grade music teacher, and the first person to recognize her innate talent for performing. One day in class he asked for a student to sing Twinkle Twinkle Little Star. Since no one else raised their hand Svea broke the silence and started to sing. Mr. Woody told her she had a beautiful voice and to keep on singing.
Fast forward ten years and Svea heads Mr. Woody’s advice by singing every chance she gets. Although it has been some time since she last sang Twinkle Twinkle Little Star she continues to write about everything from the sky to clementines. She plays piano and guitar and aims to write a new song every week. Artists like Fiona Apple, Alicia Keys, Stevie Nicks, and Stevie Wonder inspire her. She lives in Los Angeles, with her little sister and mom. Aside from music Svea likes to read, watch the Office, and drink tea with cats.
Altamullan Road – Underwater (Video)
Gearing up for the release of their mesmerizing debut album due in
the fall of 2020, Altamullan Road, fronted by the sublime voices of
Johanna Kurkela and Johanna Iivanainen already gave us a peek
into their world of wonders with their 1st single “When It’s Time”.
There may be no return after the 2nd, saturnine “Underwater”.
With “Underwater” the supernatural sisters paint a gloomy picture
of a deathwish bittersweetly mixing with hope. A musical canvas
resounding with echoes, the song is sparsely colored with firm,
broad strokes and eerie harmonies. The song weaves an intricate
network of gossamer melodies and submerges the listener in
gothic, melancholic bliss. As light and airy as the singing appears at
the outset, the lyrical message lies clandestine, anticipating just
below the monochrome surface for you to dive in.
“Underwater” is a pensive tide, lying in wait to wash over you.
Altamullan Road is the silent wail of angels becoming the darkness,
the grief of waning memories and the faint flickering of candles in
Siv Disa – Fear (Video)
‘Fear’ is a fascinating look inside Siv Disa’s mind. Produced with friend and collaborator Sam and the Sea, dreamy drum patterns and analog synths phase into a warm, enveloping atmosphere that orbits around introspective lyrics. If you’re not careful the song can lure you into a false sense of security – it’s easy to find yourself comfortably lost in the production, but closer dissection of the lyrics reveal the song’s true, poignant nature. Disa’s writing is deeply personal and therapeutic, with this track inspired by the dissociative and self-critical mindsets that empty connections can push you into, whilst also questioning what causes us to be more authentic: the truth or the fear of it.
On the track, Disa said: “A lot of the questions in ‘Fear’ come up when we’re dealing with a lot of stress and difficult situations, and right now everyone is connected by having to deal with something enormous – I think everyone’s dealing with their own fears in that way.”
‘Fear’ is released alongside a haunting music video, with Disa figured as an ominous presence in a cold, dreary landscape; unclear to the viewer whether she is a threat or is being threatened. Inspired by 70s exploitation movies and found-footage horror films such as The Blair Witch Project, it perfectly encapsulates the uncertainty and eeriness of the track.
