  • Review: "Fish Tacos" - Space Nat

    Space Nat recently released her latest single titled "Fish Tacos," a piece about remembrance of the good and the bad. We all experience undeniable happiness, fear, and contentment, all experiences that give us life. This song captures the powerful and raw emotion which we feel in these moments. "Fish Tacos" encapsulates the calm before the storm and translates that sort of stillness into wonderful melodies and lyrics. Most times people only remember the good or bad aspects of past situations, but Space Nat makes it a point to keep every single experience locked in your memory. Kicking off with calming piano keys, Space Nat introduces her vocals to the piece. Calm and soothing, her voice beautifully captures the pure love and pain that she wrote this song about. As she sings, she tells the story of wonderful memories of her love and how it all came crashing down. "I remember eating fish tacos talking about God," "Now that we said our goodbyes and moved away from the neighborhood," and "Could have run should have run but I chose to stay with you there." She also makes this incredible connection between their love and the sun. She sings about how they were "flying too close to the sun," eluding to their eventual demise. Her lyricism is so graceful and perfectly expresses the love and pain she endured in this situation. Space Nat makes indie-pop music that exists right where the night sky and the horizon meet. Equal parts dreamy and grounded, she sets intimate moments to soaring, emotional instrumentals a la Kacey Musgraves with a little bit of Dawes and some St. Vincent sprinkled in. A child of Los Angeles and an honorary resident of Nashville, Space Nat lives for a contradiction. She twists her classical training with a singer-songwriter’s vulnerability and her own synth-pop sensibilities. She has played staple LA venues like The Mint and The Hotel Cafe. Her latest single, “hit me up”, is a hard-hitting indie rock ballad about love and loss. Nat combines classic songwriting with indie rock elements to deliver a unique yet timeliness sound.

  • Review: "Till We're Fallin'" - Carmelsoul

    "Till We're Fallin'" illustrates a carefree, dance-infused vibe akin to previous singles released by Carmelsoul. Alluring vocals and a catchy melody elevate the song's rhythmic beat. Lyrics of longing and intimacy compliment the dark, cryptic mood of the instrumentals. Impressive shifts in tempo carry the song through emotional flows, making the single an effortless club hit. Self written and produced, Carmelsoul's latest single layered celestial vocals over an electronic percussive bassline, consistent with the house DJ's previous releases. A mysterious intro bears lyrics of remembrance against a slow building beat before the song dives into its first bass drop. The increase in tempo and varying drum flows embody a dance club semblance, encouraging listeners to lean into the rhythm. The song possesses qualities of 2010's EDM paired with the advanced sounds of today's house music. Originating from Denmark and Sweden, house music duo Bertil Limassoul and DJ Carmelo make up musical act Carmelsoul. The electronic music enthusiasts met while studying in the UK and found common ground over their shared passion towards music. Carmelsoul's catalog is young with 10 singles to date, but each is full of upbeat, joyful sounds made for a good mood. Written By Zewdi Cass FOLLOW CARMELSOUL:

  • Review: "Drowning" - Sarah Anne Fernandez

    Love for yourself can sometimes be a hard thing to achieve. There are so many factors that can play into that love that we desire to feel for ourselves. The beginning of that is understanding and coming to a conclusion that there is an issue, and to take that challenge head on. This is the topic of singer Sarah Anne Fernadez's new track "Drowning." In the track, Fernandez takes her emotions head on. The track has a dreamy instrumental, featuring drums, synths, piano, and some strings. The synths sound almost aquatic, playing off of the theme of the track. The cymbal hits, remind the listener of the feeling of breaking through the surface of the water. However, at the forefront of the track, Fernandez's magical voice flows over the surface of the instrumental. Her voice is beautiful, and ridiculously powerful when that chorus hits. The lyrics delve into topics of self doubt and self love. Fernandez croons over the chorus "When will it ever be enough // I'm drowning // Under my tough exterior // Feel so inferior to all that I see." She discusses how she feels on the inside, and how things around her have caused her to feel less. She then questions whether it's herself holding her emotions back, "When will I finally be, enough for me?" That's a question Fernandez leaves to answer for herself. Sarah Anne Fernandez is a multi-talented actor and singer. "Drowning" is Fernandez's first original single of 2022. She previously released a pop-punk cover of Olivia Rodrigo's "deja vu." Fernandez has also toured the country in Wicked: The Musical. With a range that "defies gravity," Fernandez has proven herself to be a vocal powerhouse that has a bright future ahead of her.
