Song reviews

 

  Radiant Star by Sofia Härdig



Radiant Star cover art


Purposeful

Distinctly insistent, “Radiant Star” gives Sofia Härdig another opportunity to stamp her purposeful presence upon a song. Whilst almost post rock in her musical stance, Ms. Härdig throws enough in the way of quirkiness to turn the song into a medium sized steamroller.

  I Love The World by Hook

Popular

Keeping it simple works well for Dublin band Hook and the straightforward sentimentality of their song “I Love The World Because You’re In It” passes the time in a pleasantly direct way. Sometimes that is all that you need.

  Tiny Love by Apache Rose

Muscular

A Russian band, it would seem, yet Apache Rose sound more like muscular Americans with their purposeful song “Tiny Love” strutting confidently in the best rock music tradition. Play loud and add beer for best enjoyment.

  The Lonely Ones by Paul Andrew Sneddon



The Lonely Ones cover art


Honest

Paul Andrew Sneddon keeps it homespun and rough edged through the two minutes or so that “The Lonely Ones” takes to capture your attention. The energy might well exceed the production values but he can undoubtedly take it to the bridge.

  Hungry To Kill by Violetta Zironi

Classy

Sounding like she has dropped right out of the heyday of expansive pop songs comes easily to Violetta Zironi and “Hungry To Kill” duly qualifies as quality ear candy. The lyrics suggests darker intent but the sugar coating makes this song very easy to consume.


  Lay Down by HATT

Trendy

Sometimes you hear a song that sounds like it was designed for the dancefloor of the kind of club that only the best of the rest could attend and, with locked to loop sequencing and a splash of charm, HATT duly give us “Lay Down”. Snarky!

  Born Again by Hope Waidley



Born Again cover art


Dark

A curiously bleak song for someone so young, “Born Again” would persuade many that Hope Waidley is some sort of modern day gospel singer although the song avoids minor key misery by successfully infusing a fair measure of hope.

  Underneath Your Hands by Marika Wittmar

Mystical

Something mystical this way comes and, in these synthetic times, that makes “Underneath Your Hands” by Marika Wittmar a welcome change indeed. The song weaves and wanders but never leaves you behind.

  Me by Kitten

Compulsive

Kitten know how to mix retro with raucous and duly provide their song “Me” with the propulsive power to transcend the three minute attention span boundary. The confident female vocals will sell this song even to your maiden aunt.

  Time by Simen Lyngroth



Time cover art


Naturalistic

Light as a cloud with enough jingle jangle guitars and folk pop stylisations to keep the aficionados happy, “Time” effectively advertises the fact that Simen Lyngroth has no fear of keeping things natural. Take it to the bridge!

  Slip by Strandels



Slip cover art


Wistful

We should all be thankful that the world still spins round powered by love with this wistful confection of heart fuel by Strandels adding fire to their boiler full of love canciones. “Slip” is a song to make you sigh.

  Gasoline by We Three Kings



Gasoline cover art


Solid

Robust and to the beer drinking point sort of sums up “Gasoline” by We Three Kings with the band being unafraid of leaving some space between their four on the floor groove and their best three power chords. Play loud!
