Acclaimed Norwegian singer-songwriter Anneli Drecker releases her stunning, fourth studio album, Revelation for Personal Use, to worldwide audiences on May 19. This time around, it's only been a two-year wait since her previous solo album, the exquisite Rocks & Straws (2015), on which Anneli embarked on creating a different, more personal and somewhat cinematic soundscape than her previous, pop-oriented albums, Tundra (2000) and Frolic (2005). In the musical sense, Revelation
It's not that often that a song immediately hits you in such a feel-good way to make you smile and want to dance. So, that's why I'm sharing this brand new single, "Love Can Do", from Memphis-raised, Los Angeles-based singer-songwriter Lanita Smith. This is such a melodic, catchy, well-composed track with top-notch, polished vocals and production - you have to have a listen. The song is taken from Lanita's forthcoming album, Remember Me, that is due for a Summer 2017 release.
It was only a few months ago that we had a listen to the first single ("Keep On Keeping On") from UK singer-songwriter Anna Pancaldi's forthcoming Sweet Charity EP. At the time, Anna commented to SoundThread: "This EP has turned out to be the most proud I have been of anything I've ever made. A very special moment for me." Today, Anna premiers a brand new track from the EP - the beautiful and moving "Brother". She remarks, "This song is my most honest offering thus far and h
After gracing us with her impressive debut solo EP earlier this year, UK-based Bryde (a.k.a. Sarah Howells) returns with the equally stunning EP2 (Seahorse Music). Like its predecessor, EP2 contains four brand new original songs that range from edgy and energetic to warm and emotional. A lead single “Honey” was released a month or so back and gave us a glimpse into the most energetic, full band powered track yet from Bryde. Clocking in at just two minutes, this catchy number
Don't let the title of the debut single from Mere Child fool you - it is definitely good enough! Mere Child is Aimee Herbert-Smith, who hails from Brighton, has been making music as part of a previous music collective, and has now embarked on a solo career. "Not Good Enough" is a lush, soothing song that steadily and gently pulses the listener throughout the four-plus minutes of this beautiful and well-written composition. Aimee's soft, smooth vocals shine through, and are re
It is hard to believe that Anna Pancaldi is an unsigned artist, after listening to her music and watching her live performances. I doubt that this will be the case for long. "Dear Joey," is this talented UK singer-songwriter's second EP release, and is the first of a series of EP's that are named after and dedicated to her siblings. "Runaway" is the powerful, featured song that opens the EP with Anna's voice starting deep, and is accompanied simply by the strumming of her gui
"You can't help yourself" leads the chorus of the first track on Bryde's debut EP, simply titled "EP1". But my advice is that you really should help yourself to the four beautifully written and performed gems on this EP. On her Facebook page, Bryde (a.k.a. Sarah Howells) describes herself as "a girl & an electric guitar singing fierce & fragile songs", and that is exactly what you will find on this EP - all songs are written and played by Bryde herself. The opening track ("
