For some this is a retake session, for others, it is purely a moment of research, in any case, there are three albums released earlier this year that are really worth a shot. Flashes.
SPIRIT GLOW – DG SOLARIS
Based in South London, duet DG Solaris has released their debut album, Spirit Glow, last June. From the first notes of Cosmic Sigh, we knew we had to share it. Danny Green and his wife Leana explore a part of the spiritual world but not only that. The vintage shapes and colours their songs bear are growing, sober and timeless. Dreamy and spatial, mystical and natural, this album pushes through a stars spiral (As Many as the Stars), but it is mainly the association of their two voices that gets us on board.
COMMON GROUND – THE CLOCK GOES RED
Common Ground is Welsh established producer Andrew Lyden’s new project’s, The Clock Goes Red, debut album. And we can affirm there’s a lot of savoir-faire here. After a spoken-word introduction (Intense), guitars are taking up the stage. Between blues, folk and pure rock music, the producer really gets to it with fresh and high spirited tracks. Most times cheeky, sometimes wise too, there’s a lot to unveil through these eclectic riffs (Sola). After all, with over 40 years in the music industry, we couldn’t expect less than a true success. And there it is.
7 DAYS – EMY TALIANA
Seven tracks released on the seventh day of the seventh month, reunited in an EP soberly named 7 Days, we have to admit there’s a pattern here. The universe we get to listen to is Emy Taliana’s. It’s in English that the artist from Paris gets her words out, painting with her guitar’s strings the storms in her heart (Would I Lie to You). This EP has something enchanting, soft and personal. From the intimacy of a bedroom to vast open spaces that just want to be seen (It Feels so Good), Emy Taliana fills the space with poetry and talent.
