Luis Morrison, ‘Ultraviolet’

Words By Joey Rochert.

‘Ultraviolet’, Luis Morrison’s debut single, can’t go wrong! The singer-songwriter from the United Kingdom’s Midlands does things his way, and the sounds he creates have us clinging to the speakers like chewy on the bottom of a sneaker.

The crunchy guitars catch our attention with their virility, and the bass lead and drum beat have us tapping our feet long after the song has ended. Luis has a great voice, and despite this being his first release, he does not sound inexperienced. Furthermore, he possesses a level of skill comparable to that of the game’s best players, and if he continues on this road, he will be giving the chart-toppers a run for their money.

Olly E, ‘Rise Above’

Words By Joey Rochert.

With ‘Rise Above,’ Olly E, the rocker who needs no introduction, returns more vital than ever. It’s a solo effort from the British musician and composer, and as it progresses, he creates an atmosphere that’s easy to get lost in quickly.

A bright guitar tone opens the tune, pinching the ears with a bite for the right reasons. It gradually builds to the first stanza, where Olly shows that he is up to the task. The track appears to be heading straight towards the drop from the start, but Olly, being the mastermind, decides to keep us on the edge of our seats.

Olly E

Olly has a unique vocal timbre that is difficult to compare to others in the scene. We can draw parallels with artists who have previously risen to prominence, such as Placebo’s frontman, but he is in a class by himself in terms of style. This unique creative approach makes him stand out, and it will be impossible to place him amid any of the innumerable tracks published to DSPs regularly.

The refrain in ‘Rise Above’ is catchy, and all of the sounds blend seamlessly. The drums pound furiously, and the guitar riffs speed up, making the track a strong stadium filler. Also, the bass manages to make its way out of the frantic mix, and no sound is lost, which is a testament to Olly’s mixing talent.

Olly generally fills the vocal space with his lead delivery. Therefore there aren’t many supporting harmonies. As is sometimes the case with tracks like this, but a little additional backing at certain parts would have been fantastic!
