Theia - Single Review: Bye Bye

09 Apr 2018 // A review by floorcat
Christchurch born artist, Theia's single Bye Bye is a song of attitude. Starting with gentle techno notes playing subtly in the background to emphasis the emotion, which was also sung through the lyrics "I don't need your fake ass hanging round me so bye bye".

This song is a "big finger up at the doubters and haters" as Theia said when she was interviewed at the Vodafone Music Awards. As her music career begins to flourish, there must have been ample experience of these doubter and haters who "had nothing to do with my life" and "had nothing to do with my shine" and yet kept making the noises.

The style of her singing at the beginning of the song reminds me of Ellie Goulding, and as the song progresses her personal style emerges. I really like her style of singing - it's relaxed with an energetic undertone, a very Kiwi style indeed - and this Kiwi is soaring in the big smoke!

“It’s a glorious, empowering mixtape that harks to the brash “no rules” sonic experimentation of contemporary Charli XCS married with melodies that wouldn’t feel out of place on an early 2000's Britney record” - Tone Deaf

Ivy Red - Single Review: Absent
05 Jun 2018 // by floorcat
Absent opens the darkest parts of IVY RED's mind, and definitely meets the intent of what he is attempting to portray with his music - emotional, deep and raw. There is no sugar coating in his music or the lyrics, making this a poignant track, which is definitely not for the faint-hearted.

Vince Harder - Single Review: Sugar Coated
28 May 2018 // by floorcat
Vince Harder's new single Sugar Coated is a catchy and relaxing tune throughout. The lyrics indirectly pointing towards the social media which creates fake images and sugar coats what's underneath the surface.
