Greywind

Antidote

Mindlessly flicking through social media reels and tiktoks (as the kids say) led me to see numerous videos asking the question “what does Irish emo sound like?” more… “Greywind”

Artesan

Lonely People (Are Never Alone)

Silvi

Visions

Scottish-based artist Silvi’s most recent track follows the wonderful “Possessed” and further demonstrates her talent and versatility, digging even deeper this time with her incredible voice. Starting with a low-key whisper, the track soon bursts out into a full-on wigout with a massive bluesy guitar riff which she imitates vocally before we get a sotto voce section before the whole thing ramps up a further gear, if that is even possible (with Silvi’s voice pretty much anything is!).

The overall vibe is dramatic, ominous and possible life-threatening. The lyrics appear deliberately ambivalent – you can take these any way you wish but there’s clearly some raw emotion going on here. There is a full EP release due and even an “international date” as this artist’s star rises higher. Recommended.
