SONG REVIEW 🎵📝 TEYNA - Lost in These Times



radioairplay.com independent new music



TEYNA - Lost in These Times
Pop, Alternative
Germany




Overall Impression: In a world often besieged by chaos and uncertainty, music has a unique ability to serve as a guiding light, offering solace and understanding amidst the tumult. Teyna's alternative acoustic rock track "Lost in These Times", stands as a testament to this sentiment, weaving a narrative of introspection and resilience through its conviction-filled performances and relatable lyrical themes. From the moment the first delicately conveyed arpeggiated guitar elements reverberate, the listener is instantly whisked away to a realm of raw vulnerability and unfiltered emotion, and between the sterling performances and strikingly effective arrangement, listeners are in for a particularly thought-provoking experience.


Strongest Point(s): The vocals, imbued with a profound sense of purpose, resonate with the weight of the human experience. Every word, every inflection, carries with it a sense of urgency and longing as if each lyric were a plea for understanding in a world fraught with confusion and uncertainty. Possessing both excellent dynamic and tonal control, the central lead vocal performance is excellent and provides the necessary emotional depth needed to bring out the subtle nuances embedded within the lyrics. "Lost in These Times" speaks to the universal struggle of grappling with adversity and searching for meaning amidst the chaos of modern life. The lyrics, woven with heartfelt sincerity, paint a vivid portrait of inner turmoil and existential questioning. Lines like "Sometimes I don’t know what is real anymore" and "Too many options, too many reasons" capture the essence of the human condition with striking clarity and resonance. These elements are strengthened even further thanks to the well-crafted arrangement and well-chosen instrumentation. Whilst the acoustic guitar provides the a strong underlying rhythmic and harmonic backbone, the richly textured vocal layering and beautifully incorporated string embellishments help expand the sonic character of the track in a way that proves most absorbing - combine this with the dynamic nature of the drums and the added vigor they infuse into the track and you end up with a well-rounded arrangement that keeps you invested from start to finish.


Target Audience Appeal: "Lost In These Times" is an effective piece of alternative acoustic-rock and I'm sure lovers of the genre will strongly connect with it.


Artist target suggestions: Jewel, Michelle Branch, The Corrs, 4 Non-Blondes, Alanis Morissette, Sheryl Crow, Natalie Imbruglia, Mellisa Etheridge, The Cranberries, The Cardigans, R.E.M., Sixpence Non The Richer

SONG REVIEW 🎵📝 James Haro In Storage - Verses



radioairplay.com independent new music



James Haro In Storage - Verses
Rock, Indie
Pennsylvania, U.S.




Overall Impression: "Verses" is an exciting new release from Philadelphia-based James Haro In Storage. This uptempo indie rocker features a dynamic arrangement and a robust, energizing sound provided by chugging guitars, bright synths and powerful drums. "My lungs drag on concrete" exclaims Haro with an angsty post-punk delivery, as he explores complex themes that revolve around living a capricious life and the struggle to find one's purpose and place. Passionate vocals, intelligent lyrics and an incredibly vivacious sound make "Verses" from James Haro In Storage an easy recommendation for indie pop/rock and alternative singer/songwriter fans. Be sure to check it out, available now as a single on all major music platforms.


Strongest Point(s): Outstanding production, excellent mix. Fantastic energy and spirit. Brilliant song structure, nice variety and diversity to the arrangement. Great intro; organ sounds beautiful underneath the acoustic, and I love how you used those acoustic sections as dynamic pauses throughout. Drums and bass sound great together, nice driving rhythms. Nice saturated distorted guitar tone. Brass (synth?) sounds amazing; great melodic hook there, and a really nicely written part in the bridge. Stellar vocal performance, wonderful pop/punk style that shows good range. Backing vocals sound incredible, great harmony stacks as well as the call and response group vox at the end. Exceptional lyrical content; wonderful thematic material and a terrific use of prose throughout, there's some simply stunning lines in there. All in all this a remarkable bit of song craft, and a tremendous track that should have no problems at all finding an audience in the indie crowd. I'd recommend continuing to work with the same producer, together you managed to achieve a truly compelling and contemporary sound. Awesome work, from top to bottom!


Target Audience Appeal: Fans of Pop/Rock, Alternative Pop/Rock, Indie Rock, Alternative Singer/Songwriter, Power Pop, Post-Punk


Artist target suggestions: Bleachers, The 1975, Ben Kweller, The Shins, Ben Lee, Rilo Kiley, Guster, Nada Surf, Death Cab for Cutie, Brendan Benson, Bright Eyes, Silversun Pickups, The Postal Service, Of Montreal, The Format
