Open-Mindedness From Aura Blaze Will Take You To Another World

19 Jan

Take one listen to Open-Mindedness and get ready to be teleported to another musical dimension from Aura Blaze. Hearing everything from the synth sounds setting the mood on the tracks and the writing coming from the talent of Rhode Rachael, listeners will be entangled in the musical atmosphere. Rhode Rachael does an amazing job of composing the environment complete with out of this world sounds paired up with a steady rhythm that can be best characterized as galaxy rock or psychedelic genius. When thinking of similar artists, one can think of MGMT, ELO, and The Hollies. Everything about Open-Mindedness feels like intentional greatness with a carefully crafted musical world to accompany it.

D.G. Adam’s Nest Of Vipers Brings The Angst & Rock In Latest Album

3 Apr

Coming after the debut album of Feminine Endings, Nest of Vipers carries references of its own throughout the song list. Inspired and fueled with creative sparks after realizing that the translation of Cancún meant “land of snakes”, listeners can sense that each and every one of these songs have an intention and association with them. One of the standout tracks on the album include I’m Writing To Say with lyrics such as “remember I love you as long as I’m alive”. The song has a no frills arrangement, but anyone who has gone through heartbreak is immediately connected to that memory due to D.G. Adam’s vibrant writing. Some influences that one can connect to this sound include The Hollies, David Bowie, and Rufus Wainwright. On the other end of the arrangement and musical tone, include Platonic Lovers. Adam’s does an excellent job at incorporating Latin and jazz elements within the song and the feel-good doo wop background vocals give the song added atmosphere. From start to finish, Nest of Vipers surprises listeners along the way with a variety of sounds, themes, and the auditory experience along the way.
