Single Review: Cherry Glazerr - 'Big Bang'

 by Sophi Monzon

The band, Cherry Glazerr, released its most recent single titled 'Big Bang'. It is evident from the beginning that the song’s syncopation allows room for emotion and heartache to blossom. 


The initial guitar riffs set anyone off into another dimension of euphoria, which is how the lead vocalist of the group, Clementine Creevy, describes the song to simulate. Creevy’s breathy vocals along with the relatable touch of lyricism that is sung with authenticity. The words refer to the splitting up of a relationship and her endurance. The perspective of this meticulous tune expresses how the person realizes that the termination of said association with a said person ended up being a mistake. They are as far and as close to each other as possible, which is the mentality that lingers after a severe separation. 

As the song hits the chorus, we hear Creevy’s belting “I still call you when I need escaping” which takeovers the soft bass synth enabling the pop & indie-alternative clash. This allows for any demographic to immerse themselves into either the thrilling sound or eliciting flashbacks of experiences that are linked in every line. 

I think that’s what makes these certain songs (the untraditional popular genre) very enjoyable to anyone’s ears, especially since underground rock bands are highly revered by a variety of different people. Cherry Glazerr has been on the scene since 2013, so this phenomenal single isn’t their first musical rodeo. They are able to solidify their true sound with complete authenticity, which in turn shows their abundant creativity with the simplicity of this track. 

'Big Bang' is definitely a song that takes a turn for the best with delicate and passionate rhythm paired with phenomenal production. I leave you all (anyone who reads this) with these words. Take an earnest listen to the less publicized songs of the present and intend to discover one of these artists that also deserve the spotlight, sometimes more than the most trending.

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
