I'm Feeling Hopeful
Milan Ring drops her debut album I’m Feeling Hopeful and it’s a flawless neo-soul venture into overcoming former demons. Fourteen incredible tracks, forty-two killer minutes, and an endless bevy of straight bangers. If Milan’s feeling hopeful, we’re positively convinced. Exquisite work from an incredible artist Australia is lucky to have. Wrap your ears around this one.
Italian pianist and composer Emiliano Blangero offers up four emotional piano pieces bookended by short intro and outro. Una Notte is meditative, minimal, and deeply introspective. It’s sombre stuff that might otherwise leave us in the fateful depths of our own melancholy were we not redeemed by the joyful promise of Blangero’s closing full-length piece ‘Libertá d’infanzia.’ The perfect way to unwind from hard day’s work. Put the feet up. Pour a drink. Exhale.
Equal parts personal and powerful, GRAACE bares her soul in stunning new single, ‘Half Awake.’ A minimal composition of largely acoustic guitar supports an ethereal vocal delivery before plunging into each chorus with deep bass strikes that mirror the gut wrenching questions GRAACE is asking herself. It's heady stuff from a burgeoning young artists clearly growing into her full songwriting strengths.
