Raphael Klemm, ‘Sorry Dear World’

Words By Joey Rochert.

With his latest single, ‘Sorry Dear World,’ Raphael Klemm brings back nostalgic vibes. Furthermore, the release has a 90’s rock vibe, but there are plenty of new hooks to keep him current in today’s game.

The entire track is musically engaging, and the chorus takes it to a whole new level of sophistication. The refrain’s hook is indenting, and Raphael backs it up with a captivating vocal delivery. He has a lot of energy and gives the bigger hits a run for their money in terms of performance.

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!

No Serial Killer Drops ‘We’re All Going 2 Die’

Words by Max Jordan.

No Serial Killer has just released ‘We’re All Going 2 Die’. It is a rock and roll gem which captivates with its infectous melody and awe-inspiring vocal.

It is the first release which I have come across from this new artist, but it stands out brightly in distinction. I am unaware of any other musician doing anything quite like it, and the artist has filled a niche which many are craving.

‘We’re All Going 2 Die’ kicks off with a grand piano and rhythm section which will get you tapping your foot at rapid speed. We are then in with a strong vocal performance with a heavenly delivery. It has a 70s rock vibe and the slick guitar riffs and solo glide through in true fashion. Overall, I am relishing this new release from No Serial Killer. Check it out by clicking here.

Misty Shape Excite With Midnight Train

Words by Max Jordan.

Misty Shape are a rock band who you need to keep high on your radar. They deliver hits time and again and their new track ‘Midnight Train’ is testament to the band’s unforgivable talent.

They hail from Russia, and they delve into an area of the music industry which not many people go. They have an authentic rock vibe but yet provide heartfelt deliveries with infectous melodies. The new track ‘Midnight Train’ takes a slight paradigm shift for the up and coming group. They tend to go for a giant fuller rock sound but yet they tone it down here. I like what they are doing.

It kicks off with a jazzy guitar intro which provides massive sentiment. We are then in with a sublime vocal from the lead vocalist. I can almost touch her emotion in her strong performance. I can hear her passion oozing out, and it makes for a refreshing listen. We are then in with the signature rock sound which the band deliver so well. There is a huge drum beat and a James Bond-style chorus which will grip you within an instant.

Overall, it is an excellent song from Misty Shape. You can check it out for yourself below.
