March 9, 2021 Singer Lu Wright share soulful pop song, ‘What I Like’

Singer Lu Wright share soulful pop song, ‘What I Like’

What I like’ delivers sophisticated, soulful pop, which lyrically revels in the power of change. Distorted spacey keys are broken with the snap of a snare drum, as Lu’s rich alluring vocal melts into the atmosphere to create something gorgeous, luminous, and weightless.

Lu said about the single “What I like is about finding the strength to break free from an unhappy relationship. I came to the sudden realisation that it was purely down to me to change my situation. Often, it’s only after breaking out of a toxic relationship, that we look back and realise how we moulded ourselves into tiny comfortable spaces just to fit in and cope. ‘What I Like’ takes us through the daunting yet exciting prospect of starting again and building a better, stronger and more genuine you.

Lu’s breathy, jazzy tones rest beautifully between soul and R&B. The artist grew up in a home filled with music, listening to everything from the classic soul/jazz maestros of the ’50s and ’60s, like Nina Simone and Sam Cooke, to noughties Hip hop, RnB and soul outfits such as Outkast, Eminem, Rihanna and Amy Winehouse, this is where her love for songwriting and melody truly began. Since then, her contemporary influences have aligned with the times, citing Little Simz, Anderson Paak, Maverick Sabre and the Blue Note Re: imagined album as huge sources of inspiration.

The young artist recently graduated from the London branch of the BIMM Institute (British and Irish Modern Music Institute) and set to work on her debut EP ‘Notes to self’. Her debut single was supported online by the likes of Clash, Earmilk and Headliner Magazine to name but a few.

Lu Wright’s ‘Notes To Self’ EP is a body of work that radiates warmth and a magnetic energy, woven together in a narrative that tells of the vulnerability and the solitary venture of self-discovery as a young woman. The 2020 pandemic hit just before the EP was completed and live dates were cancelled, but Lu used that time productively to complete the finishing touches remotely and concentrate on her songwriting. The result is a collection of musically detailed, immaculately produced treats.

Aaron Sibley has just released his new single ‘Blame Game’. Recorded exclusively in Aaron’s home studio, ‘Blame Game’ was another of Aaron’s passion projects throughout the lockdown periods of 2020 and 2021.

Just 24-years-old, Aaron has made a mark on the London music scene already. In 2017, Aaron was a Pride’s Got Talent finalist, performing on the main stage of Pride in London in Trafalgar Square. His indie-pop music (think Billie Eilish meets Sam Smith) has been played across the UK and Europe. His 2018 song ‘Once upon a Time’ reached Moldova’s Eurovision National Finals and his song ‘Wildfire’ participated in the same National Selection in 2020. In 2019 he released a 6 song EP titled ‘Holiday Love’ and he continues to release exciting new singles.

obylx ‘Climb'(s) back into our hearts with his latest song

obylx, one of our favourite musicians to keep track of, has provided another of his monthly releases. ‘Climb’ (released like clockwork on the 1st) displays yet another layer of the producer’s diversity. Compared to old-school names such as Supertramp, The Beatles and the modern stylings of Tame Impala, the single once again provides a little glimmer of hope for its listeners.

“When self-imposed rules and expectations actually hold you back in a situation where you could be flourishing without them.”obylx shares the inspiration behind the single.

Of course, we won’t publicly admit that we’re planning our Christmas playlist just yet but let’s just say, this single is just made for cheerful scenes. Family, egg nog and twinkling fairy lights spring to mind immediately. Santa, is that you?
