Kylie Minogue survived the transformation from girl next door to medal-wearing philanthropist, riding storms both romantic and commercial, and still sold some 80 million records along the way, making her glittery home in the Great British public’s hearts. So, when her 14th album’s first Electro Pop single, “Dancing”, appeared, it couldn’t help but provoke a question: why has she decided to become Dolly Parton?
The truth is this unexpected shift has as much to do with Minogue’s innate love for country music. It came, in actual fact, at the suggestion of her A&R man, and she’s admitted she was initially wary. It’s not, after all, an obvious leap, and a cynic might wonder if its inspiration had anything to do with her difficulty cracking the American market, where she’s not dented the Top 40 since 2002.
But Kylie being Kylie, she’s somehow pulled this trick off with oodles of charm, bundles of energy, and no shortage of killer hooks. It isn’t, after all, the first time she’s switched styles. To succeed, of course, she headed to Nashville, bunked up with enough songwriters for a private line dance, then co-wrote every track on the album, making the music her own. So much so, in truth, that any Country influences are buried pretty deep within what is largely a standard, US-centric pop album.
To be honest, there are too many acoustic guitar songs for my taste. Don’t get me wrong but I would prefer an electronic dance music direction as the way it used to be. However, the pumping beat is still there on tracks like “Dancing”, the disco-friendly “Raining Glitter” and “Rollin”. ‘Golden’ is something completely different from Kylie, despite this, I still love her!

Synths and Pop music sound like a match made in heaven! Don’t miss the chance to watch this horror-inspired clip, and sing out loud to The Weeknd‘s new single, “In Your Eyes”. Clearly, he gives us Michael Jackson vibes, and you’ll love it. This time, visuals are kinda scary and dark, while proving his 80s aesthetics are timeless. Based on the lyrics, it’s another awesome love song, where he expresses feelings of regret. Best of all, The Weekend’s 2020 album, ‘After Hours’ is topping the charts worldwide. With this in mind, I can smell more hits on the horizon.

There’s Nothing Like Aerial Flux’s Synthwave Spirit
The duo Aerial Flux is known for their extraordinary Synthwave spirit. The music video for “One By One”, an 80s-inspired track is based on a dark vision of the future.
The duo Aerial Flux is known for their extraordinary Synthwave spirit. The music video for “One By One”, an 80s-inspired track is based on a dark vision of the future. Interestingly, the clip shows how intravenous drugs take people directly to a fanciful paradise. If I’m not wrong, I would dare to say part of its aesthetics is somehow related to the Coronavirus outbreak.
These talented guys started their careers in 2004. Without a doubt, the prevalent elements are electronic music and their trademark liturgical organ. After successful live shows in France and Germany, they’re ready to conquer more territories with their unique style. Not for nothing, they’ve decided to sing the bits on the beat for an innovative concept, using virtual singers on their music, while merging the Synthwave trend with housey beats. Enjoy it!

Video Premiere: Eivind Husebø – Strange
“Strange” might sound familiar to some of you, as it was originally written by Anders Harem from the Norwegian Pop band Bloom.
“Strange” might sound familiar to some of you, it was originally written by Anders Harem from the Norwegian Pop band Bloom. A few days ago, Electro-Pop artist Eivind Husebø shared a new version that is as incredible as the original. The music video for “Strange” portrays the true meaning of freedom. I think you truly need to disconnect from the rest of the world and enjoy more time in nature as seen in the visuals in order to experience liberty. On the other hand, with such meaningful lyrics, the track turns memorable with ease. From my perspective, the clip shows us a journey from dread to emancipation. I hope you like it!

Watch this fresh music video from LA duo able machines. Their first track of 2020, “Intentions” comes accompanied by stunning dark visuals. In particular, you’ll see them performing this Electro-Pop banger in a room full of creepy mannequins. I have no other words to describe this song but I think it’s highly melodic, and lyrically conveying, especially for women. Indeed, it was born from a real conversation between Linus and Tay, about the true “Intentions” of men. In many cases, trying to figure out your lover’s desires, could lead your mind to levels of tiredness.
Mastered by Chris Gehringer (Halsey, Lana Del Rey, Lizzo) and mixed by Seth Earnest (Tessa Violet), this tune can easily emerge as a radio-friendly hit because it’ll be 100% relatable for the ladies. By planning ahead live shows for the next summer days, the duo promises an exciting agenda for the entire year. Stay alert for more news.
