Hello World. Feeling a little depleted? Just in need of an uncomplicated pick-me-up?
You know when you can just feel this twinkly, youthful, uncomplicated freshness within a song, and you just know you’re onto something? Well, it only took a brief listen to Dutch singer-songwriter remme, to make me feel just that.
Lost and overwhelmed. Two words many of us can probably relate to right now. In a world so fast paced with so much freedom – yet somehow still bound to strict conventional societal rules – we find ourselves faced with so much choice that it’s hard to choose – or not much choice at all, […]
Instantly falling in love with music gets harder and harder. At least for me. When you listen to music as a job, it can get more difficult to hear something and like it from the get go. But sometimes, just sometimes, there’s an exception. And in my case, it was when I first heard the […]
When was the last time you felt hugged by a song? Felt the warmth of the words, the gentleness of a guitar… just engulf you. Well, look no further. We’ve found a song that does just that.
A 15 second intro, some serene grungy indie chords, then: “Loneliness is a disease and if you have it please – don’t talk to me.” There it is. An opening lyric that immediately hits. Hard.
Let’s be honest. Adulting is hard. Wake, work, sleep, repeat. Don’t we all long for the simplicity of childhood times? Or at least for the friends and the bond of friendships we had then? They seemed a lot calmer, however, also much more intense. But honest. Well, Eliza Shaddad has managed to create a powerful […]
The age of indie music is on the rise once again. Walls of sound, layered guitars, repetitive few word choruses. It’s definitely something that’s gone missing between the multitude of smoother genres that have been holding our attentions over the summer months.
We love ourselves a little LYRA here at Bitter Sweet Symphonies, so the news of new music from the Irish chanteuse got us very excited.
Sometimes simplicity is key. No diverting melodies or show off-y instrumental tangents. And showcasing that less can be more is the little-over-a-week-old single, ‘Ordinary‘ by newcomer, Joe Connor Little.
There really is something oddly satisfying about contrasts – polar opposites – two sides. And placed side by side, in a metaphorical sense, they end up creating this balance. Say summer to winter or happy vs. sad. Or even somber meets joy.
Listen up, folks. We might have a new addictive band in town. Meet ViVii. Dream-pop trio extraordinaire hailing from music wonderland, Sweden.
After enchanting us with her beautiful song, ‘Quietly’ last year – Irish singer and songwriter Sive is back again this year with another musical gem, ‘Holding’.
It only takes a brief 10 seconds of listening to ‘Won’t Stop’ to know this track is lit. And one that most definitely won’t stop taking over your mind.
Upon hearing the first beginning guitar strums, it seems the all so colourful Canadian band, Alvvays has a new song out or even the dreamy American alt-rock Mazzy Star is back with happier tunes – but no, once we hear the first word sung, it’s the beautiful voice of Billie Marten creating a sweet tantalising […]
Picture a lone stretch of land. There’s nothing and no one around you. The wind blows through your hair. You breathe in. Close your eyes. You hear nature calling to you; telling you a story.
The countdown is on. With a mere few weeks to go, Eliza Shaddad has brought out another single from her highly-anticipated upcoming album, Future (out 26th October via Beatnik Creative).
Love can be such bliss. But when it’s run its course in a relationship, the end tends to get difficult and emotionally messy. Do you end it – should you leave? Can you work it out – or have you changed too much?
British singer and songwriter Freya Ridings makes magic when she starts singing at the piano. Her enchanting voice – which goes from soft wisps to full powerhouse – bares so much emotion you find yourself caught in her spell. Teamed with her gentle fingers on the piano, lyrics that reflect the deepest of feeling, you […]
Gentle piano chords introduce JC Stewart’s latest cut, ‘Medicine.’ His voice is soft – a little soulful – it almost feels like he’s singing directly at you, up close and intimate. It certainly has this (good) weird intensity about it that draws a listener in.
