Huia Veale - Waiting for You Single Review

06 Jul 2014 // A review by Ria Loveder
Greytown born, Huia Veale's single Waiting For You is a wonderful song to add to her musical career. She was born into a musical family and with it being also being her number one passion, she is now ready to share her sound with the rest of the world. 

The tone of the piece is set strongly due to the simple melody and lyrics. The story of a girl missing her lover is clearly depicted and even though the song has an enjoyable melody to listen to, you embrace and except the sadness and longing of the female character.

I really appreciate music that utilises lyrics, picks and constructs sentences that unmistakably paint the image and story for the listener, and this is exactly what Huia has done. She uses a simple melody underneath the vocals which establishes the tone of the piece even more. The instrumental half way through the song is beautiful and very pleasant to listen to. 

Huia's voice is clear with a lovely smooth quality that enhances the story being told, especially during the intro when it is only her and the guitar being strummed. 

I congratulate Huia on her song Waiting For You and I look forward to hearing more of her music in the near future.

Annie J - Single Review: Whenever You Leave Me
31 Mar 2019 // by Ria Loveder
Annie J’s song Whenever You Leave Me is one that all teenagers can relate to; that relationship that you want to be in, but distance seems to come creeping in. The lyrics are mature beyond her years and at the young age of 15; she’s showing that she has the writing capabilities to produce mature, insightful music.
Two Cartoons - Single Review: Less People (Less Traffic)
29 Oct 2018 // by Ria Loveder
Back in 2015 I reviewed Two Cartoons EP Lost Boys Club and raved about how they seem to so effortlessly create tunes that need to be sung loud and proud. Three years later, their latest single Less People (Less Traffic) is no exception.

Ha the Unclear - Single Review: Wallace Line
08 Apr 2018 // by Ria Loveder
My music taste over the past year has changed a wee bit, and I am loving music that harks back to the 80's, and Ha the Unclear do just that. Their eccentric sound is filled with unconventional retro alt-pop music making them the perfect backing track to the New Zealand summer, pity we have just come into Autumn!
