"Hey there! Thanks for checking out Only Bodies. We hope you’ll go on a journey with our self-titled EP as it explores the difficulties that come with the emotional growing pains inherent to love. Our music aims to balance sincerity and honesty with thoughtfulness and tact. Also, to make you wiggle your booty." - Only Bodies
Healing must first begin with feeling the feels. Leanna Oki is niched in this particular genre of music. It's not so much about what the subject matter is, as much as it is about "you aren't in this alone." Oki's approach to artistic expression in this manner is what connects her so closely with her audience.
From start to finish, the song carries us under its Bluesy wing, as Britny softly begins to tell her story. Moving forward, the frustration in the artist's voice becomes more and more apparent, until it finishes to explode in a last chorus of wailing cries, proper of a banshee. Original and familiar, this tune stands out thanks to its rock and roll eloquence, and its humane imperfections.
Kit Citrine's new album "Midnight Masquerade" is an autobiographical release looking into the artist's life events from the past 2 years. Home to 15 songs and running for 45 minutes, the album covers a variety of highly relevant themes.
Expect each song to be pretty different. We view each one as its own personality, and we nurture them as such. Every creative decision is all about what will help a given song find its full potential and life. Some are extremely minimal, with just a couple voices and a guitar. Some are a lot more active and in your face, involving more rapid fire lyricism, driving electric guitar and drums - programed textures and percussive effects. And although some of our tunes are purely instrumental, we absolutely love words. To us, words are paint. They allow a listener to touch and feel and see. They are often illustrative and we try to pick out words that make what we’re singing about tangible and conversational. Adam Grindler / The Baker's Basement
“You are welcome to dive into my heavy Latin grooves from rock and reggae to funk and dance. Get lost in the intersecting sounds. I wrote this new album, ‘Reflexión’ as an antidote to our recent shared experience of inconceivable isolation. The melodies will lift your internal vibration towards positive energy,” - Eljuri.
"So I became friends with someone, we had a lot of chemistry but tried to keep things “just friends”. We spent all our time together and seriously became best friends(with an underlying air of major attraction). One day I decided to go 20-30mins out of my way to get donuts for them, and on the ride to their place I looked over at those donuts and had that wonderful/terrifying realization “Oh Shit… I really really like this person.” I got the inspiration bug and started making voice notes, and by the time I reached their house I had fully written “Oh Shit!”. Madison Davenport
Each of the 10 songs have their own part in the whole picture, and none of them copy from one another. Thus, the listener gets to hear long dreamy guitar instrumentals along with Helena's sweet voice, synth-driven ethereal soundscapes, cozy yet mysterious movie-esque tunes and rocking songs full of driving energy.
Cinematic with twirling plucks in the dark atmosphere, there's some truly moody bass, which are still no match to the emotionally heavy vocals of Aurelia. Bold and fearless in nature, her pop voice also carries operatic elements running through the song to further heighten the feelings of pain, revelation and ultimately freedom, especially in the climax of the song.
"As silly as it sounds, this song is actually based on a true story. For some reason there have been more boys that fit this description around me than you’d guess, but if you know me, you know that none of them have been romantic relationships with me. But this universal idea of “the type” (whether we have one or not) was so fascinating that I knew I had to write a totally sassy pop banger about it. Type is a light and funny take on staying true to yourself, what you like, and being confident about it along the way.” Ainsley Costello
