Maryze previously announced her debut LP 8 with a stormy-sweet queer nightclub-ready banger “Experiments”, followed by this she would share song ”Emo”.

Emo is the song Maryze always wanted to write to her high school boyfriend. It tells the tale of a love story turned toxic when you realize the person you thought you knew never really cared. “Did you ever listen to the songs I sent to you?” she asks repeatedly, sounding hurt and angry that her ex never took the time for things that meant something to her. She’s at a point where she’s checked out and numb, no longer fighting for a relationship that isn’t working anymore. The vibes are emo/rock/punk with vocal inspiration from Avril Lavigne and Paramore, bass tones emulating Fall Out Boy bassist Pete Wentz (Maryze’s longest-standing crush that her ex used to make fun of her for liking, calling the band lame), and a nod to Green Day’s tremolo guitar effect from “Boulevard of Broken Dreams”.

“I made the song with producer and long-time collaborator Solomon K-I (who is featured on guitar),” Maryze shares. “We actually met playing in an indie rock band 10 years ago and our former drummer Graeme McDonald is featured on live drums.”

Consequence of Sound added it to their Song of the Week roundup, noting: “Throughout “Emo,” Maryze appropriately gets her vengeance, cranking up the volume and launching into a nostalgic, ‘90s era alt rock chorus. It’s an introduction to the singer’s grittier side while still remaining catchy and unique, and it demonstrates Maryze’s urgent need to stand up and be heard.”

April 5, 2022 Q&A with dynamic experimental musician Frank Cogliano

Q&A with dynamic experimental musician Frank Cogliano

Brooklyn based musician Frank Cogliano recently shared his delightfully eclectic and experimental album Computers of the World. Comprised of 17 vibrant tracks, each song has its own unique flair to them. Incorporating downtempo notes, electronica, and ambient sound effects of busy streets and spaces, one can easily lose themselves in this vibrant sound fusion. Previously forming part of R&B band  Sugarbad as their guitarist, the producer wanted to explore his abstract music production further, and the result is breathtaking.  We asked music producer Frank Cogliano a few questions about his artistry below.

‘Brainscape’ features on

What are some of your earliest memories of music?

My parents always had music playing when I was growing up; the Beatles, Stones, Beach Boys, Nirvana.

Take us through your songwriting process. Are there any particular steps you take when putting music together?

Usually, I hear ideas and sing them into my iPhone. But also, particularly for Computers of the World, each track started with a sample and I built the track around that

Studio work and music creation or performing and interacting with a live audience, which do you prefer?

Studio work, because I have complete control over the end product.

What is the most memorable response you have had to your music?

Whenever anybody responds positively to any of my music it is a good thing. It happens sometimes.

If you could put together a radio show, what kind of music would you play?

I post short videos with music I like every day on my Twitter, so probably along those lines.

Name five artists and their albums who would appear on your radio show

Uku Kuut – Vision of Estonia

Googoosh – Mano Tou

Antonio Carlos Jobim – Valse

Popol Vuh – Aguirre I

Teisutis Makacinas – I diena einam

What would you like to achieve with your music? What does success look like to you?

I would like to make good music. Success is making good music.

One last thought to leave your fans with?

Take a deep breath.

Shoshy is a young female artist from East London. She has been producing music for a while now and graduated with a music degree last year. In the first lockdown, she wrote an album and was planning on gigging with that material but, of course,  hasn’t been able to. It’s been difficult trying to promote her music during this time. She is inspired by 60s and 90s psych shoegaze, postrock, and trip-hop. Some influences include bands like the beach boys, Khruangbin, my bloody valentine and skinshape.
