Lindsay Munroe Releases Latest Single ‘River’ Ahead of EP Release

Lindsay Munroe is a brave a bold lyricist, baring her soul through music. Her previous singles ‘Mirror’ and ‘Split’ resonated with my very core, and I have been eagerly anticipating her next release.

River’ washes over the listener instantly, and is breathtakingly stunning. From its very source, the track is deeply emotive but the vocal delivery from Lindsay is so soothing and tranquil. The most quiet and gentle of her songs to date. The melancholy and heartfelt, ‘River’ finds a way to nestle into your mind and make its home there.

With a heavy emphasis on repeating lyrics, Lindsay is brooding over her pain. The song is slow and winding, allowing us to ponder over our emotions, as well as her own. It is a soulful but soft track. The quiet nature of it is nurturing and not harsh or cutting, despite its emotional heaviness. Instead Lindsay’s vocals convey enough emotion through their almost muted tones, as though they are whispering a secret. It is just enough to invite the listener in.

A songwriter who carves out a part of her heart and places it into the soul of her song.

The lyrics themselves are haunting, as Lindsay conveys such yearning through the depth of her words. Exposing so much of her inner most thoughts and feelings, is once again, admirably brave. Lindsay has such an ability of providing fleeting glimpses into her past, and slight reflections of what may have been, divulging just enough to provoke thought and create in many ways, a story for the listener.

Her self-expression is captivating and certainly makes for a fascinating muse. What I hope I am conveying to you, is that ‘River’ is more than just music and lyrics. It is raw and real, and a slice of Lindsay herself. A songwriter who carves out a part of her heart and places it into the soul of her song. Lindsay’s lyrics are vulnerable and open, however, rather than be deterred by her sheer honesty, Lindsay Munroe is helping it build her.  

‘River’ begins with awash of subtle guitar strings and moody vocals. As the song progresses, it also incorporates more elements musically, as drums emerge, and guitars are played a little heavier. Synths and pedals are also used. Although the track is in no way crowded and cluttered with a clash of jarring instruments. Instead instruments simply blend in to complement one another. Lindsay’s vocals and the overall tension of the track heightens in its chorus, but ‘River’ remains to be so soft and delicate; the music carries it along beautifully.

My adoration for Lindsay Munroe is deepening with each song I have the pleasure of hearing, and I am waiting earnestly for her debut EP release. I just know that it is going to provide the most beautiful emotional journey.

Lindsay Munroe’s Debut EP ‘Our Heaviness’ has been rescheduled for release on 19th June.

Dan Burridge Releases Latest Single ‘Just Fooling Around’

Dan Burridge Releases Latest Single ‘Just Fooling Around’

A fresh burst of talent, Dan Burridge, is a young indie sensation and I absolutely adore his sound . He has a very distinct tone to his voice that you won’t be able to get enough of. I feel there is something unique about it that quickly sets him apart from others. I can picture him wrapped around a microphone, balancing off the edge of a stage, with a euphoric energy. Think an early edgy Alex Turner meets the indie pop-fizz of the likes of Declan McKenna. I have a strong inkling this guy will bring so much joy to a music hungry crowd.

‘Just Fooling Around’ is a single that will shake you up and make you feel good again. It possesses everything a great indie track should. A shredding guitar riff, a punchy bass, and a superb vocalist. I cannot big Dan’s vocals up enough on this track. Asides from that though, the instrumental backing to this song sounds tremendous, and it’s made me think that as well as being a solo artist, Dan could also slot perfectly into the role of front man in an indie-rock band if he so wished.

Previously Dan has gigged around South Wales playing acoustic sets, so ‘Just Fooling Around’ is our first taste of hearing him performing with a full band incorporated into the mix. Personally, I feel it suits him exceptionally well. Having that extra flair and spark to the music really drives not only his vocals, but his whole unique sound and style forward, and defines his music fantastically. I’ll be very interested to see how Dan develops musically, and would say he’s certainly a growing artist we should all keep in mind.
