It’s New Music Friday and, as always, we found a few little treasures to put in our playlists. Three flashes, three atmospheres.
TWO HEARTS – ZOLA BLOOD
Sometimes you have to accept to step into the matrix, eyes shut. The one Zola Blood is proposing through their new EP, Two Hearts, is made of smoke and gold. Add to this some echoes, the effect is supernatural and eerie, and quick we are into space, where we shouldn’t be able to hear anything. Yet, in this space, the band’s experiments and breaths get to us. Space, matrix, both probably, we don’t choose, Zola Blood chooses for us.
DÉSORDRES – AUSTYN
With the very first note it’s giving us, Austyn’s voice catches us. It’s true, he was already a winner as we have a thing for that kind of voice, however, we also admire his writing skills, both for music and words, going from modern to classic poetry along this EP called Désordres. The whole thing is covered by warmth volutes, neon-bright notes and sensual chords for an addictive result. Brune Mandarine is particularly efficient in this game. We urge you to listen to it, it’s too good to pass.
HARLEM – KING SOLOMON HICKS
Nothing will ever overcome the feeling of satisfaction when we find the exact album we needed. We had no idea of the existence of King Solomon Hicks and his debut album Harlem until now. Thankfully, our daring curiosity and the wish to discover beautiful guitar riffs draw us to him. The young artist, with a good entourage, has mastered not only his guitar but also his voice. What The Devil Loves, Headed Back To Memphis, Have Mercy On Me and the others are some jewels deserving all of our attention for they are already legendary.
