The last Friday of November is generally filled with an overwhelming amount of new tunes. And today’s no exception. We’ve made choices and here they are. Flashes.
FARBFILM – C’EST KARMA
The young Luxemburgian artist C’est Karma has a lot to say and to musically show with her new EP, Farbfilm. On the film, the singer uses her voice like a thin brush of ruffled hair. Influenced by William Carlos Williams’ poems as much as by Marina Abramović’s performances, C’est Karma is also an activist, interested by the migrant situation through Industrial Salt which, musically, uses a lot more of electro beats than other tracks, rich of rock and pop influences. Overall, the five songs of this openminded EP will find their way to your ears. Our favourite? Pool Party.
TO – LUCA WILDING
Luca Wilding’s clear voice is both a surprise and a revelation. The young English artist managed to find his place in our playlist thanks to his new EP, To, which might be pretty short but is still brilliant. The folk atmosphere, inspired by some of the greatest songwriters, puts some light on Wilding’s sang poems. A bit of retro (Master), some dreams (Johanna), loads of tenderness (Ruby, Don’t Cry), and some calm lyricism (To) altogether from an enchanting and promising opus. We’ll keep an eye on Luca Wilding.
NO FUN MONDAYS – BILLIE JOE ARMSTRONG
Some people really can’t wait to tour again. It’s the situation Billie Joe Armstrong, Green Day’s singer, found himself in during these lockdowns. Even with an album released about a year ago, here he goes again, behind his guitar, for, No Fun Mondays, a solo album of classic rock songs covers, of which the fabulous Kids In America (Kim Wilde) and Police On My Back (The Clash). If a revolution isn’t coming out of it, the work is smooth, the riff confident, the mix clean and the reflection on 2020 unveiling slowly, between hope and tiredness, nostalgia and patience.
