In #musicmond I have been using this hashtag for quite some time to share music recommendations from up-and-coming artists. Always fresh, and always different, they try to find trends before they become one. You can check December review For more music.
Welcome to 2022! The new year brings us opportunities to start anew, and to hear different perspectives on the world, and we all live in that reality. Let’s listen to the artists themselves with one word. 3
Super Moon – Compassion
If I could be you, and you could be me
Can we see things differently?
I want to believe that you can see
People who like me
We are fine
Comes from the first track of the year Edinburgh, Scotland For an indie track that asks questions we should all try to answer ourselves. Do you believe in empathy for everyone?
“As far as I’m concerned, it was a conscious decision to write a song about being beautiful rather than being angry or upset. I had an idea of what it would be like to be in someone’s shoes like a polar opponent of dissent on issues like poverty. And resources. Can I understand them?” ? Although I don’t think there was anyone specific in mind. “

Joyce – cold water
The sum of all the weights,
Bound by revelation,
All is well
Keeping the indie rock vibe, let’s now go to Liverpool, England for a song with an interesting chorus that really invites you to sing, especially if you relate to the relationship it describes:
“The track is often centered around a specific time. Of course inspired by life events.
We were jamming in the practice room and I already had the song, I diversify the song writing process depending on whether it writes the melody and the rhythm itself. The lyrics matched the music and we left. It’s centered around the discomfort of a short-term relationship, it’s got a sexual undertone. Speaks with the feeling of being tired by someone. It has different meanings. “

REOT – Disgusting song
I’m with you today, maybe not tomorrow
Who will know our fate?
And I try to think by looking at you
Who joined us, who joined us?
Just me, I try to tell you
Do I miss you my love, do I miss you.
Only you and me
We travel to different planets without knowing your destination.
Attractive Bassline? Check. Drum solo? Check. Piano, trumpet, and guitar solos? Check, check, and check! Listen to this jazzy Argentine rock extravaganza from Buenos Aires:
“Cursed song A story of a character who lives in complete conflict between good and evil, Yin and Yang! His Satan, and his angels. He ‘Involved in schizophrenia and her non-decision speaks to her everyday.
With those modern and vintage tones with jazz, the track gives something old to relate to, but with a 2021 sound.“

Sunhill – Golden Day
You do not need to clean the pool
There is no need for gardening rules
No fun in my town
The green leaves turn brown and come back
Sell all my things today
Because things never go my way
All the time we never saw
Some got in and away
When a feeling-beautiful garage punk song comes from Borhom, Sweden, it may be the saddest feeling you can find. Don’t make friends and don’t celebrate too many days:
“The songs were written in response to what you hear in the news. About the outbreak of viruses, climate change, political divisions and a devastating and bleak future of mental health issues, which can make golden days feel far away.”

Blaze Project – A Mile to Go
But I have a lot of questions …
Our last stop of the month is Quebec, Canada, to ask questions about a pop rock story that may not have an answer, but may be part of a soul searching journey for confidence:
“The song deals with the subject of a man abandoned by his mother on the way to meet him on the last mile, wondering if this is the right thing to do. A very beautiful melody and emotional music.”
