With a passion for fashion and leaving an everlasting impression with his versatile vocal compositions, R&B singer Phillip Gilchrist will do you no wrong. He’s very multifaceted, melodic and really gives your ears quite the treat. His signature sound is perfect for today’s Pop and R&B realm and really proves it two-fold with his newest single “Song On The Radio.”

Not trying to be witty or anything, but this song definitely should be on the radio. The catchiness of the chorus on this song is one you’d definitely hear on any Top 10 radio countdown. Phillip‘s voice really carries the torch on this track with his mid-to-high vocal range and really sings with his own stylization reminiscent of Ne-Yo, Usher and others of a similar caliber. This song is definitely for the ladies though; it’s sexy, has plenty of swagger and really gets the sweat going once the track starts to move you. Whether you’re in a club or by yourselves, this song’s magic takes you with it.

This song has some incredible power that goes way passed the radio, but definitely sharpens the edges of a solid hit that could cut through the airwaves. It’s a home run, touch down, and goal all at once. The production value is right where it needs to be, the post production doesn’t have unnecessary antics and the authenticity of the vocal progressions are naturally executed. Once you take a listen to “Song On The Radio,” you’ll be keeping tabs on Phillip Gilchrist‘s career, including an EP he currently has in the works. You can find this current single on Spotify, Apple Music, and several other digital music streaming platforms.

Exclusive Review: Purple Tone Flower – “If I Were” Single

Review by: Justyn Brodsky

Cover Art of Purple Tone Flower’s Single for “If I Were”

With an upbeat swagger and mid-range vocal tones reminiscent of iconic stars like Bob Marley, Anthony Kedis (RHCP) and Lenny Kravitz, the signature sound of Santiago, Chile’s Purple Tone Flower, the solo project of Mauricio Flores Sánchez, is an eclectic and nostalgic treat that really indulges in yesterday and today’s more flavorful grooves and detail-oriented musicianship factors that touch on several influential genres over the years.

His latest single “If I Were” has a straightforward, groovy throwback rhythm section that really showcases the dynamics of precise high-hat/kick drum and bass lines that always fit the role as the foundation of any song (or group). The keyboard swells diligently enhance the soulful vocal melodies and also stride along perfectly with the mid-ranged guitar tones that really bring out that classic Fender sound similar to Natalie Merchant’s “Carnival” style. The production value is also very notable on this track because of its authenticity. No unnecessary electronic enhancement, no vocal trickery, just finely tuned instruments jamming to an eclectic and crafty tune that has dangerous levels of catchiness and one of the grooviest upbeat structures you could ever want in a jammy track.

“If I Were” really comes out swinging and is bound to get any dance floor up and moving. It authentically showcases several multifaceted angles of Purple Tone Flower‘s sound with distinctive additives that not only make the song better, but more memorable as well. As you will find yourself coming back to this track time and time again. The single is currently available on Spotify, Apple Music and several other digital music streaming platforms.

Exclusive Review: KÍTA – “Postponed” Album/LP

Review by: Justyn W. Brodsky

Icelandic recording artist KÍTA is quite the trifecta. She diligently recorded, wrote, and produced her multifaceted Electro-Pop debut album ‘Postponed’ over a 3 year period (hence the album title reflecting the process of pushing back the production, or “postponing” it over that time period). But just like almost anything that takes a crucial amount of time and hard work, the end result is rewarding and fulfilling; and this reward comes in the form of the atmospheric and indie debut of KÍTA‘s record ‘Postponed’ in its finished greatness.

Comprised of 8 versatile tracks with messages of empowerment, heightened moments of life, adversities and many different moods and stories that surround the album, KÍTA brings forth a signature sound that is vivacious, charismatic and multilayered with many different ambient additives to deliver a powerful Pop sound with electronically-infused textures to tie it all together into an album of joy and fascination. While plenty of melody is offered on this record, her story-telling lyrics echo like a choir with many layerings of her own vocal projections to emphasize each track into something more than meets the ear. She shares a reminiscent vocal quality similar to super stars like Lorde and Dua Lipa, but with more class and less flash – leaving her musical persona more mysterious and out in the open in a way where you can draw your own conclusions about her. When listening to ‘Postponed,’ you gather a sense of a girl that will not be judged but leaves subtle hints of a mysterious portrayal. And by that, we mean portrayal of herself – no matter how you may view her. But when listening to her, it all comes together for her where it’s what she says that gives her the biggest presence. Showcasing herself as an artist with a loud, powerful and effective message that resonates throughout the landscape,

The two standouts on this album are definitely back-to-back tracks “Actions Speak More” and “Still Young.” Songs with subtlety, sounds of nature and beautiful additives of upper 3rd harmonies. But each have their own uniqueness. “Still Young” has that finger snapping “Royals” feeling with lyrics that speak of nostalgia, but still remaining in the moment, and refusing to take your youth for granted. The bluesy Tracy Chapman-style guitar progression is an amazing musicianship factor in this song and really brings this song to life with its uniqueness and versatility.

Overall, ‘Postponed’ is definitely an album worth waiting for, for those who have been involved with the project since the beginning – especially for KÍTA herself. These are 8 unforgettable tracks you’ll be coming back to time and time again, and hopefully her next release won’t take three years [smile]. The album is currently available on Spotify, Apple Music and several other digital music streaming platforms.

A song written as a powerful outcry for unity, trials and tribulations as well as a recognizing of self awareness regardless of who you are and where you come from, recording artist iSAAC K!‘s inspirational single “Together” is a triumphant anthem that intertwines complete justice to the song title and the simplicity of togetherness as well as being part of a common (but effective) concept as a songwriter. That no matter what position we are in as a society, the opportunity to be there for each other in the end is always there, and can always be unconditional if we choose to do our own part as a component to a solution.

It is full of blissful visuals and really encapsulates a vision that iSAAC K! brings to the forefront as the song plays out.

His vocal approach, reminiscent of 90s superstars like Seal and others of a similar caliber, is genuinely stylistic and really emphasizes focal points within each vocal melody that he utilizes through every measure’s duration. But the true standout of this song is the chorus; one that is driven, meaningful, wholesomely projected and truly conveys the message in a way that can’t be ignored. In times like these, “Together” is a masterpiece of unification that is much needed not just as an individual experience, but a societal one as one. iSAAC K!‘s pivotal single is a true journey of self reflection and passionate empathy. It’s a must-listen for 2020 on all counts.
