JENEVIEVE X‘s first full-length album is finally here! ‘Digital Dream’ is compromised of 10 new original songs, giving fans worldwide a futuristic experience. Furthermore, it’s no surprise the New York City-based artist is used to release amazing Electro Pop compositions. Especially, when she topped the Top 10 Billboard Dance Club chart list in 2014 with “Move”. First of all, I love the way she sings in a Madonna-esque tone. Clearly, everything feels very natural and radio-friendly on this fresh record produced by the acclaimed Producer, Giuseppe D. The official release date is set for Friday, September 21st. Meanwhile, you can read my first impressions on ‘Digital Dreams’ below.
1 – Digital Dreams (Intro) She reveals the concept for this album from the start. I would dare to theme revolves around modern technology or something that is ahead of our time. This is possible because of electronic music, isn’t it fascinating?
2 – Faded (The Scene) Singing with emotion is one of her valuable skills. Listeners can actually feel the impatience and anguish that lyrics narrate on the second track.
3 – So Over You At first the musical arrangement is kinda hypnotic, but then you can get ready for some heavy bass drops while singing about giving up on love.
4 – The Train Highly distorted electronic sounds go hand in hand with the rebellious spirit of this tune, which is nothing more than venturing with the person you most love in a train to do crazy things.
5 – Secret Satellite The title of this track seems to be taken from Sci-fi novel. Here I love the rhythmic drums, which is the element that stands out. A little bit of rockish music gives a different touch to the whole album.
6 – Mistress In short, JENEVIEVE X will make women feel empowered by this track. As the album progresses, I can already notice some similarities in terms of sound with Eurythmics and Goldfrapp.
7 – Marvelous Seduction (That Day) Basically, Her vocals will be hard to interpret while she’s murmuring over the first seconds. Nevertheless, I think it was a creative resource as she’s literally trying to enchant your ears.
8 – IWYB (I Want Your Body) After listening to it, now I understand why it was chosen as the lead single from ‘Digital Dream’. The temperature starts to rise when she sings so energetically I WANT YOUR BODY… It’s simply catchy and sexy and the perfect single either for clubs or radio plays.
9 – Talk Too Much Sonically, I think it’s minimal or even monotonous. Somehow, I feel identified with the lyrics here.
10 – Grenade Despite, the name of the song, there’s nothing explosive about it. On the contrary, it feels very relaxed, perfect to chill to after the rollercoaster of emotions portrayed on the previous numbers. Well, I really liked the laid-back vibes, who doesn’t?
Overall rating a 10/10.

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

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.
