Flora Cash – You’re Somebody Else

Flora Cash is composed of a Scandi duo that met through Soundcloud. Their objective is to “sonically explore the diversity of human relationships,” which is exactly what they accomplish with their song “You’re Somebody Else.”

What is most striking about this song is how haunting it is, from the vocal to the airy production part to the lyrics. Starting out with a simple guitar part, the song quickly escalates into what seems like beautiful chaos, which mimics the lyrics to the song perfectly. In addition, there is something heartbreaking about the melody. The lyrics top off this masterpiece with lines like, “you look like yourself/ but you’re somebody else only it ain’t on the surface/ well you talk like yourself/ no, hear someone else.” All in all, Flora Cash has managed to explore the complexities of a love that is falling apart in the most poetic of ways.

Jason Hawk Harris – The Smoke and the Stars

You can’t put Jason Hawk Harris into one musical category and do him any real justice. Considering his spark for a musical catalyst was Queen’s ‘Bohemian Rhapsody that he heard when he was young and then chose to dive deeper into composers and various musical genres aside from his guitar he has so many layers to unpack when we unpack his music. His latest track “The Smoke and the Stars” has been receiving huge support and amazing reviews as we get to hear the heart of Harris’ style and sound.

We get a deep feeling of experiences though his lyrics in this track and it amplifies his fantastic writing skill. Describing his music as Meta-Apocalyptic Country/Americana Grief-Grass we get the idea that you’re never going to pin down exactly what Harris will deliver next but you can be sure that it will contain a meticulous amount of soul and passion. We cannot wait to hear more!.

Bad News Club – Afterthought

Bad News Club is based on London. The 22-year-old musician states that this project brings sad songs. “Afterthought” is a prime example of the true musicianship in Bad News Club.

The song begins with a distant crowd cheering and then goes into the delicate guitar and vocals. Lyrically the song is quite tragic with lines like “Are you really leavin/ Am I all the reasons you want to go/ Am I overthrown?” and “Oh woman I’m afraid that I loved you/ But I’m so glad I fought to be an afterthought/ Just a stain on your memory.” His voice has an old-school British pop/rock feel that fits perfectly in an acoustic setting. Although the tone of the song is definitely sad, the production elements, such as a little bell sound, give it a glimmer of romanticism. Overall, it is the perfect song for a broken heart and a rainy day.
