Just like on "Chasing the Bull", Sam Feinstein's lyrics are thoughtful and drenched in irony, making it for a very fun listen even when the subject matter is a serious one.
If "Navigator" by Monroe Moon was somewhat of an experiment, "Smoked A Cigarette Instead" is the realization that it worked. Everything about this song sounds so clear and so well produced, it's absolutely stunning.
Moving slightly away from her more dance-pop early singles, Jess Stewart sounds confident and mature on "Prince Charming (Went to Hell)", leaning more towards a funky neo-soul production style that works really well with her voice.
Carlos Ucedda is amongst the most creative people working in electronic music and synthpop on the current musical landscape, for sure. The way he manages to evoke such emotion and feelings is truly remarkable, and "Under Your Iris" is a perfect example of all of his creativity and a bold step toward the unknown.
Robert Vendetta says that "Fool" is an integral part of the upcoming album's story, being about hitting rock bottom before the turning point for the character.
Leanne Gallati does a wonderful job with this ballad, laying all of her emotions bare and sharing them with the world really bravely.
"Face Tomorrow" was originally released in 2021 as a part of Panem's debut Zeitgeist / Absolute Monopoly EP, and this time it got a full-on acoustic treatment, and it feels shiny and brand new once again.
The production on "A Love Revival" is absolutely immaculate, bringing to the front and center everything that Moon and Aries have always done so well in the past; and still bringing on new elements and influences with it.
With the intensity heard on the best indie rock from the 90s and a production that heavily flirts with indie folk as well as the orchestrations and choirs from alternative pop, "Innocent Sinner" by h. eldritch is a wild ride.
We recently covered both of their newest solo singles, "Midlife Crisis.Again" by Luke Tangerine and "Animal Sauna" by Carlos Ucedda, so it's an absolute pleasure to be talking about their latest collaboration. "I Adore You" is a truly outstanding amalgamation of the stronger parts of each of the artists combined into one incredible single.
