Album Review: Andrew Farstar - Metamorphosis
‘Metamorphosis’
is not only the album name of Andrew Farstar‘s new musical adventure. It also represents a change of his music style into something different or contemporary. Nevertheless, that’s not a reason to dismiss his previous ballads, covers and jazzy songs, which crossed frontiers. On the contrary, this positive transformation seeks the recognition of his remarkable versatility as an artist. Overall, ‘Metamorphosis’ is an album that offers an engaging rhythm in almost all its 8 tracks. Clearly, Andrew Farstar is moving forward with an Electro Pop sound that will please the younger generation. However, above all this, what I liked the most was his trademark smooth vocals that will immediately capture your attention + the short stories behind the lyrics too!

The following is a track-by-track review of ‘Metamorphosis’.

1 – This Is How I Feel  Everything starts with an easy to sing-along song. Here Andrew offers a pleasant experience for listeners and gives off the right vibe of today’s electronic pop music. In addition, I must confess the chorus is the catchiest part that keeps me singing.

2 – My infatuation (Love Vibration) Backed by claps and snaps in order to create an upbeat atmosphere. I can assure you the beat of this tune has grown on me straight away. Probably, it is the leading example of the fresh sound he wants to introduce to his fans. Below you can watch its music video.

3 – Love Is Maybe now things are changing a bit with the third track. Firstly, it features interesting Rap content from the collaboration of Dylan. However, the main vocals of Andrew clearly point out this is still an emotional track. On the other hand, its smooth flowing melody is perfect for those of you who want to chill out.

4 – Goodbye Is Not Forever (DJ Michael Russo Mix) This time the Australian singer goes one step further with a vocal club track. Deliciously, this party version mixed by Michael Russo will have zero problem getting feet to move.

5 – Being Human He wrote a beautiful song that should lead us to reflect about human values. Interestingly, the electronic direction he has taken allows him to sing with different tempos. This one is mellow in its three-minute length.

6 – Follow Your Heart (Dance Mix) Another EDM-oriented tune that could be defined as ‘ear-catching’. Somehow, it makes me think it’s the best song from the whole album. Sincerely, I’m addicted to the ‘oh-oh-oh’ vocal lines and the burst of energy it produces. Are you ready to dance all night long?

7 – Kimi Ni Oborete This is basically the Japanese version of track #2. On a side note, it counts with the participation of a talented female singer called Yuri. I do not speak Japanese but it sounds pretty well in my opinion.

8 – Goodbye Is Not Forever (New Mix) If I’m not wrong the last song of the ‘Metamorphosis’ album sounds more like the original version of track #4 and it’s obviously a ballad. This genre is the forté of Andrew and he gives the crowd a chance to feel romantic at the end of this excellent record.

Decipher The Tarot Cards With DESIRE In “Days & Nights” Video

Published

Tarot cards

DESIRE‘s new single “Days & Nights” is a masterpiece both aesthetically and musically. Tarot cards, a crystal ball, and the art of intuitive reading are the main elements of these mind-blowing visuals.

So far, “Telling Me Lies” is my favorite song off their most recent Electro-Pop album, ‘Escape.’

However, “Days & Night” is just as good as I expected it to be. In short, you can expect a love song bruised with anxiety…

Written and produced by Johnny Jewel, you’re about to enjoy another enigmatic piece featuring Megan Louise’s iconic vocals, accompanied by dark nuances intertwined with a dense layer of synthesizers.

Tarot cards

If anyone is wondering about the symbolism of those Tarot cards seen in the opening scene of the video, here’s a good basic explanation:

XV. The Devil: Don’t get scared! It actually means addiction, compulsion, or obsession. Indeed, we all have devils within us, the seeds of bad things we’re usually able to stop ourselves from doing.

XIII. The Death: It has nothing to do with its literal meaning. On the contrary, this card foretells transformation and rebirth. Perhaps, a new cycle is beginning and so a maturing phase.

XII. The Hanged Man (reversed): Impatience, not willing to wait or accept something.

One way or another, all these cards capture the plot line behind the lyrics of “Days & Nights.”

Besides that, DESIRE’s ample creativity marks the difference, as usual, leaving fans eager for more.

Jbledz And Alec Galloway Are Reviving Nostalgia For 80’s Synthpop

Published

Jbledz
Conjuring an overall air of 80s nostalgia, Jbledz and Alec Galloway transport you to a different time. There’s no arguing that the driving force behind “Don’t Fade” lies in the synthesizers, which highlight the melodious vocals and falsettos.

I can easily imagine myself singing “Don’t Fade” at the top of my lungs in the car, on the bus, or even in the shower. Of course, in a positive way, it’s extremely catchy and stunning.

Definitely, it’s just feel-good music!

In addition, you can tell inspiration was taken from the likes of Kavinsky and The Weeknd. Once you hit the play button below, there’s no turning back…

No doubt, Jbledz is on another level of what truly is conveying your emotions on a song. Actually, he feels what he sings as he pours out all the frustration over an abusive relationship.

On top of that, his lyrics can further prove intimate and personal experiences can connect with listeners right away. Strangely, being taken advantage of by someone you care about is so relatable these days.

“Don’t Fade” not only revives amazing things like 80’s Synthpop but also wounds of the past that warn you to make better decisions.

The best way to avoid being played is to make yourself aware of the signs of manipulation, and take prompt action when it happens.
