Single Review: Indoor Foxes - 'Mr. Yellow Eyes'

 by Aims Whitter

Having recently discovered the Edinburgh-based singer, Indoor Foxes, and her new single which I can only describe as dreamy bedroom tunes, 'Mr. Yellow Eyes'. From my first listen I instantly felt like I was surrounded by sunflowers after a glass of wine - which is a dream for me when listening to a song. 

The dreamy tune is already being replayed in my head and has me grabbing my hairbrush and turning on my disco light for a sing-along, which I think you should be doing too. The beautiful voice of Indoor Foxes in this track has already got me hooked and turning me into a huge fan. As soon as it started, I got instant vibes resembling the Liverpool band SPINN and being a big fan of them I already knew I'd love 'Mr. Yellow Eyes'. 


'Mr. Yellow Eyes' has already premiered on BBC Introducing in Scotland and is setting us up in time for the nice weather ahead. I feel like this song is going to be the soundtrack to a lot of people’s summer this year - I know already that it will be one of my top ten summer tunes this year. 

One of the lyrics, “It feels like home”, really hooked me into the song. When listening to the lyrics in 'Mr. Yellow Eyes' I felt like I was with all my best friends with a bottle of wine and in my finest summer dress. I can honestly say I am a huge fan of this song and I long to know who the charming 'Mr. Yellow Eyes' is because I can’t get this bop out of my head.

The voice of Indoor Foxes is gorgeous, it matches the instrumentals so well and really creates an amazing song. The immaculate vibes from this tune mean I will be playing it on repeat for the foreseeable. 

Massive hugs to Indoor Foxes for this, I can only describe it as an absolute tune.

Single Review: ‘Tell Me’ - Jay Moussa-Mann

by Ilana Hawdon The feeling of pure betrayal and heartbreak is perfectly captured in Jay Moussa-Mann’s latest single, ‘Tell Me’. Jay Moussa-Mann is the folk dream we have been waiting for. A favourite on BBC Introducing, Radio 6 and BBC Radio Tees, Jay ’s sound is easy on the ears but delightfully addictive. With a background in writing and film, she began her solo musical venture when she released her debut album, ‘Little Deaths’ in late-2019, and since then, Moussa-Mann has defined herself as an artist with unbelievable range and promise.    ‘Tell Me’ is completely timeless; with notes of Carole King and Joni Mitchell, Moussa-Mann creates a folk-inspired track which is simultaneously heart wrenching and strangely empowering. Beginning as a simple guitar tune, ‘Tell Me’ builds with layers of luscious strings and twinkling piano, tied together with Jay ’s vocal line which is equal parts melancholic and divine. The song feels unwaveringly intimate; the lyrics ask, ‘what was I worth?’

Single Review: 'So Deep' - Brianna Knight

 by Emily Jackson New York-based singer-songwriter Brianna Knight’s latest track, 'So Deep', is a declaration of love without any soppiness; it’s pure soul. With a voice like honey that oozes power and control at the mastery level of some of her biggest influences (Lauryn Hill and H.E.R.), Brianna’s vocals soar.  ‘So Deep’ is an intoxicating listen and in just under three minutes, Knight sells you a whole story about fun, lust-filled young love. The heavy funk bass line evokes nostalgia, making you want to get up and dance, whilst keeping things contemporary by being an upbeat tale of passion rather than your bog-standard ballad. Brianna’s sound blends 90’s R’n’B with a modern take on Soul; hearing just the first few notes is enough to wish that she could narrate your wildest nights and worst heartaches.   As Brianna sings “you’re addictive to me” - you stop and realise that you may just be addicted to her. Just before you think the single couldn’t get better, the first verse c
