Taurie’s new single, ‘Hypnotize Me’, comes with a stunning music video, which gives us the chance to see inside her mind. We watch through the lens of a VR headset, as a Martian displays the constellations of her urges. Craving a certain person so much, her aim is to be entranced by their aura. Taurie and her alien peers wander through the fabric of time and cosmos, as they are dimly lit by the neon galactic glow and tangled in the stars.
In her songs as Regina Madre, Rebecca King Crews – wife of actor Terry – hasn’t held back when it comes to the storm of emotions she’s experienced. She spares nothing as she articulates her fear and doubt. Her latest single, ‘Never Be The Same’, is not so much an emotional roller coaster as an emotional volcano: her aching voice leaves us in no doubt what the lyrics show.
Mack Ben Widdit is from Virginia, which is right in the middle of everything music-wise in the USA. So many great hip-hop artists have come from there, who share a vision and interpret traditional sounds in imaginative ways. Mack Ben Widdit is the latest star from Don’t Fold Entertainment, a Richmond imprint which specializes in imaginative hip-hop, and ‘IIWII (It Is What It Is)’ is the new single from this exciting new artist.
Keelie Walker is like so many other teens, and is still figuring herself out; trying to work out who she is while dealing with the increasing pressures of growing up. Her new single, ‘Runaway’, the follow up to March’s ‘Girls Night’, is another single from the ‘Girls Night’ EP, and as usual, we see her as herself, being an uplifting inspiration for her friends, as well as those around her.
Raphaël Angelini doesn’t limit his talents to being exclusively a classical musician – he’s played all kinds of different compositions – but no matter what genre of music he plays, when he sits down at the piano to play a piece, he does so with the confidence of a virtuoso and the energy and presence of a rock star.
Grey DeLisle’s album, ‘Borrowed’ has the audacity to cover songs from T. Rex to Willie Nelson and from Pink Floyd to Hank Williams, and features string arrangements by Eric Gorfain (Radiohead, Coldplay) and Tammy Rogers (The Steeldrivers, Victoria Williams). You’ll have to wait to hear it in full however, as the album won’t be released until later in 2021. Meanwhile, you can check out the second single and video, ‘Tonight You Belong to Me’, which was previously recorded by The Honeys in 1969, and produced by Brian Wilson, of The Beach Boys.
