ABRZY - EP Review: Night Fall

11 Jul 2018 // A review by ShelleySketch
After interviewing ABRZY, I knew I had to be the one to review his brand-new EP Night Fall. This short EP consists of three tracks; his most recent single Top Down, which has been reviewed here, and two new previously unreleased tracks 

Night Fall kicks off with the enterprising track, Rock Your Body. It isn't the strongest track to start on, and the EP would have benefited from either starting with a more compelling track, switching the tracklist around, or simply improving the balance in the mix. The instrumental could have been simpler and lighter, as to not overpower the vocals. While there could probably have been a bit more variation in the vocals and melody, ABRZY is clearly influenced by Drake, and you can hear the tracks potential. But itís not quite there yet; Rock Your Body feels like somewhat of a demo track. 

Unnecessary, on the other hand, vastly improves on the feel of the EP. It is more of a grungy rap song, with an American influence creeping in. Unnecessary seems to be about what ABRZY is up to and how heís working hard to get to where he wants to be. Itís a great track with an excellent flow, and would be a brilliant track to listen to when youíre cruising around with your friends. 

Top Down is ABRZY's current single, and it's doing very well. This track has smooth vocals, which I quite like, while also having a strong Drake influence. Despite this, you can still hear ABRZY's own style in the song. Top Down has a good rap flow and thereís a great beat to accompany it. I can understand why this track is doing so well - Top Down is a great track to vibe along to. 

Night Fall gets stronger with each passing track, which is potentially a good way to do it. However, this may also defer people from listening to a full release later on. ABRZY definitely has the potential to create some great music and Night Fall shows that he's off to a great start. 

★★★ (3 stars)

About ABRZY

ABRZY was hit with the struggle from day one. Growing up on the rough streets of Bangladesh as a young kid, ABRZY was exposed to a lifestyle that would one day spawn his creative muse and allow him to channel visions for a better future.

New Zealand soon became his new home where a young Breezy was able to test out his flow, discover his sound and pave his lyrical pathway.

2016-17 were breakout years for ABRZY, where he released a slew of exciting singles, videos, and took his live performances to the next level, allowing him to open for international artists such as Kid Ink, Tinie Tempah, Lil Yachty, Bliss n Eso with more on the way.

Times x Two - EP Review: Late Night Legacy
26 Jun 2018 // by ShelleySketch
Times x Two have been somewhat of a staple in the New Zealand festival scene for a while, but they have now stepped up and are showing NZ just how big they can be with the release of their new EP Late Night Legacy. The EP cover art is strong and regal, with Cader and Zee against a rich red background; somewhat of a reflection of the objective of the EP itself, as there are some solid tracks that are sure to blow up.

Thomston - Single & Video Review: Acid Rain
25 Jun 2018 // by ShelleySketch
Thomston has been rather absent from the public eye lately but decided to surprise us by releasing a new single and video for Acid Rain.  The single cover art has somewhat a very retro feel, thanks to the clothing choices of a metallic button up with cream pants used in the image.

Mitch James - Single Review: 21
03 Jun 2018 // by ShelleySketch
With his most recent single release in 2017, Mitch James has returned with a beautiful acoustic track entitled 21. The music is a simple accompaniment of a piano and a guitar, with what sounds like a finger snap or clap.

As part of NZ Music Month, Auckland local Josh Leys played an intimate show at Mt Eden Village Centre. The atmosphere made me feel a bit like I was at a school dance.
