Dave Curl – Soulful singer-songwriter releases ‘Don’t Talk Anymore’ Single & Video

Independent Australian-Swiss singer-songwriter and producer Dave Curl releases his iconic single & video ’Don’t Talk Anymore’. He recently released a unique sophomore LP, Lockdown – Seven Nations, on February 23, 2024. Boasting over 1.5 million streams on Spotify, airplay on numerous indie radio stations in Germany and abroad. With performances in the respected Kulturkoller Club and around 20 other locations, Dave Curl has shown no signs of slowing down. The prolific performer has released nearly two dozen singles, two EPs, and the 2021 full-length album, Introducing. His newest project promises listeners an infectious and thought-provoking concoction of rock and roll.

With a glitchy introduction ‘Don’t Talk Anymore’ beckons the listener with bluesy guitar and an edgy bass line with a syncopated drum groove in a classic tone. Dave Curl offers up an electrifying rock track connected to the times. In the animated lyric video we are introduced to Dave in stillness, observing reality through virtually reality goggles. With scenes of life unfolding behind him, he identifies the indifference a tech-infused lifestyle creates.  

Dave Curl shared: Don’t Talk Anymore’ captures the modern epidemic of disconnection, as people immerse themselves in smartphones rather than meaningful conversation. Inspired by a train journey through the Italian part of Switzerland, Dave Curl was struck by the eerie silence of fellow passengers glued to their screens. Expecting lively chatter, he instead found an irritating scene of silence. This moment sparked the idea of ‘Don’t Talk Anymore’. The song serves as an ironic reminder of the importance of meaningful communication in an increasingly virtual world.

September 14, 2023 Enigmatic musician Totten Bridge shares infectious single ‘Please Dont Love Me’

Enigmatic musician Totten Bridge shares infectious single ‘Please Dont Love Me’

Talented New York musician Totten Bridge unveiled his irresistible single, ‘Please Don’t Love Me,’ through StephJam Music on the 14th of July 2023. Defying the constraints of a single genre, this artist has amassed a remarkable 1.5 million streams across various platforms and has garnered notable recognition from esteemed publications such as Notion Mag, Earmilk, Backseat Mafia, and Medium.

Totten Bridge‘s musical style defies easy categorization, drawing inspiration from both British and American influences that span the spectrum from rock to pop, folk to Motown, and frequent forays into the world of EDM. At the core of his artistry are infectious melodies and meticulously crafted musical arrangements that climax in anthemic sing-along choruses. His lyrical themes orbit around the universal subjects of love and life, communicated with a straightforward and relatable prose, designed to deeply resonate with each listener on an emotional level.

‘Please Don’t Love Me’ delves into these thematic depths. Through clever and poignant lyrics, Totten Bridge contemplates the ephemeral nature of love and our habitual use of the word ‘forever,’ even when we privately recognize its hollowness. This composition fuses Latin rhythms with an EDM heartbeat, embellished with intricate guitar harmonies woven over tropical house progressions. It not only captures the ear with its catchy hooks and relatable content but also boasts an adaptability suited for both radio airwaves and the pulsating atmosphere of a nightclub. One can easily envision it serenading a sun-soaked Caribbean beach or pulsating from a taxi radio in the bustling heart of New York City.

Totten Bridge had this to say: “I wrote “Please Don’t Love Me” as a tongue-in-cheek ode to the joys of living life to the fullest and living and loving in the moment. I wanted the song to be fun and playful and enjoyed while hanging out at the beach with a bunch of friends. I wrote the song on guitar and then built the tracks around the basic guitar.”

November 23, 2022 Fiery rock band Mellor unveils new album Problematic Passions

Fiery rock band Mellor unveils new album Problematic Passions

UK rock band Mellor has released their latest album Problematic Passions via Triple B Records. The formidable band’s formerly released EP, Dive into the Strange, enjoyed the #2 spot on the iTunes rock album chart and #3 on the Amazon Music rock album chart. Locally, Mellor graced the airwaves of the prestigious BBC Introducing Berkshire, BBC Radio 1, and BBC 6.

Stream / Download: Mellor – Problematic Passions LP

The new album’s song lineup tells a story. The last track concludes satisfactorily, presenting answers to questions pondered regarding the conflicting and agonising emotions explored in every track that proceeds the first song. ‘Could If I Would’, the first track in the album, deals with anticipated hope, courage, and a certain conflicting inability to act in a certain way. The conflict is appeased and essentially addressed in the last track, ‘Call It Off’, which deals with letting go of a situation that does not benefit the self, especially if there is an internal personal conflict.

Mellor relays the conceptual composition of Problematic Passions: “Jake Day has done an impeccable job of mixing the songs and working with us to find the personality of the album. Although not a true concept album, it has a recurring theme of the bad things people do or get themselves into. A problematic passion could be anything from drugs and stealing to manipulation and money troubles”.

Under Triple B Records, the fierce indie rock band Mellor released their latest single ‘Meet me by the Ocean’ on the 21st of October, preceding their forthcoming album Problematic Passions. Mellor was started by Gary Kingham and Josh Woodward who met in college and is comprised of Josh Woodward on bass, Gary Kingham on guitar and lead vocalist, Kristian Bell on guitar and Sam Igoe on drums.

Stream / Download: Mellor – ‘Meet Me By The Ocean’

Mellor’s ‘Meet me by the Ocean’ discharges formidable confidence as heard in the powerful vocals that are enduring in their transmission of the emotions behind the lyrics and consistently illicit anticipation in listeners about the subsequent vocal cords. The words that come to mind regarding the vocalisation are robust, commanding and mighty among many which are carefully and perfectly woven into the musical notes of the song.    

Mellor discusses the theme of the single with these words: “MMBTO is a tragic love story. It’s about a suicide pact, a couple who end their lives together peacefully before the world consumes them. In a world of war and global warming, it’s a sobering fantasy of walking into the ocean together, side by side. It’s a track that doesn’t quite follow our usual formula. It came together organically, stemming from Kris’s (lead guitar) pedalling riff and the ambient guitar line/vocal combination”.
