Anson Seabra – I Can’t Carry This Anymore
Brand new single from newcomer Anson Seabra. This guy is a bit of an enigma. Powerful vocals and singles that have been let free onto the tube and taken a life of their own. ‘I Can’t Carry This Anymore’ is a ditty to the durge of depression. . “I feel it heavy in my bones, now – feel like everybody goes out and smiles for the ‘gram, yeah, – tried, but I can’t, – prayer in the shape of prozac .”
A Year On Earth – Sirens
Sam Burger, 21 year old lead singer of South African band Opposite The Other is a dark horse. He has recently released a new lofi indi ambient folk project called A Year On Earth. All songs were written, performed and sung by himself in his bedroom. Discovered this via Apple Music and for weeks thought it was an international (not that that makes it any better).
Here is a little mixtape of what to expect – Sirens is on the playlist at the end.
Good Work Sam Burger @samueldburger @appositetheother.
The Burning Cities – The Road ( FT Reggie Scheepers).
Brand new single from Glen Hodgson from The Parlotones who has been a very busy boy. Burning Cities is the latest side project after Lost & Found. Standout artwork, deeper darker melody and vocals. Can’t wait to see what is next. ” How can I describe this lonely feeling, tell you what I believe in, you just hang up the phone” – https://www.burningcities.co.za/ https://www.instagram.com/the_burning_cities/
Lewis Capaldi – Grace
2018 find, but still a favourite on the playlist. Scottish singer songwriter who throws his heart around the room like it’s a baseball bat. Now signed to Island records, Lewis was a bedroom artist – and when he released his first single Bruises, the song shot to 28 million plays on Spotify.
Isaac Gracie – Silhouettes Of You
Devoured in 2018, still devouring 2019. One of those songs that builds slowly and then crawls up behind your head and smashes your face into the table. British based Isaac Gracie, is quite simply, quite lovely.
His debut album is out now.
Manchester Orchestra – I Know How To Speak
Raw, open, honest, and heavy – “I Know How To Speak’ features on the documentary soundtrack EP – “The Black Mile Demos” released in 2018.
“The pest about pain It’s timeless and honest So let go of your shame It’s dead dampening blanket It’s a façade Go back and look at your training There’s nobody else like you I think I finally explained it, So I continue to move Between the bank and the blanket, don’t fake it”
Ruen Brothers – All My Shades of Blue
Timewarp track yanked straight out of a Lynch movie mixed with broody Chris Issac blue suits. Don’t stop listening until you get to the chorus, and then once you’re done, put it on repeat. Believe me, you’re going to want to.
