Ella Vos Just Released Her Powerful Brand New Song, You Don’t Know About Me

I definitely love Ella Vos more and more. Somehow, she always success to amazed me with her music. Last Monday, Ella Vos just released her awesome brand new song called You Don’t Know About Me. Melodically beautiful, lyrically powerful. Maybe that’s how I describe about this song. You Don’t Know About Me has a mid-tempo melody of electronic pop. The combination between the thumping sound of bass, finger snaps, and beautiful voice from Ella Vos definitely makes this song so powerful and really worth to hear. Until now, I’m still addicted to this song.

Not just totally beautiful from the melodies, this song also has a powerful lyrics. Ella Vos gave us a powerful message to all woman through this song. In one source that I found, Ella Vos’ said,

“… I wrote a song about ignorance. About all those little comments we combat throughout the day. About choosing to replace those words with empowering statements. This is my body. About learning to be strong. About not letting anyone tell me who I should or shouldn’t be. Because you don’t know about me.”

So, do not let yourself down or falling apart just because people judgments about who you are. Because they don’t know you, they don’t know what you’re going through right now, they don’t know anything about you. So, keep your head up, be strong, and do not let yourself drown into sadness because sadness is just an absence of happiness.

Wow, I think I already talk too much towards this song. But now, I let you hear this beautiful song from Ella Vos, You Don’t Know About Me. Don’t forget to share your thoughts and opinion about this song by give us a comment below. Thank you so much for visiting Kustosica and enjoy the music folks.

Album Review

Let’s Talk About Bishop Briggs’ Debut EP

What a nice day to wake up and find out that Bishop Briggs, one of my most anticipated artists, just released her debut EP. Bishop Briggs is a stage name of British musician based in Los Angles, Sarah Grace McLaughlin. You may already heard her singles, like River, since last year. Some describe her music as dark pop, some as alternative rock, but one thing for sure, I began to watch her music since the first time I heard her single, River. 

Fresh, crisp, and powerful are what cross my mind when I hear Bishop Briggs’ debut EP. The self-title EP consists of 6 songs, featuring some of her famous singles and two new songs, that I bet will easily winning lots of its listener’s heart.

The EP starts with River, the one that successfully put her name into broader acknowledgment. As an opening, this song is not only convince you that you are in the right track to find something good, but also gives you a glimpse of what will you get. Next in line, she puts a new song, Dark Side. If River’s intro is quite heavy, she starts Dark Side with fingerpicking guitar melody before launch her powerful voice in chorus and effortlessly playing the tension. Determined to keep your attention, Briggs put The Way I Do. She greets you with her high-pitch voice that dance along with the humming background, which slightly reminds me of Rag N’ Bone Man’s music. Next, she gives you a relatively slow tempo songs, Wild Horses and Dead Man‘s Arms, but still with more or less same enchanting formula–support by the choir, hand clapping, and finger clicking. Though I don’t find Wild Horses’ tune as gripping and upbeat as the first 3 songs,  I like how she combines the heavy electro tunes with the guitar. She close the EP with another new song, The Fire. With a simple drum beat that grip my attention, she put her powerful voice on point. It is indeed a clever move because here, it feels like she restating her music nuance and promising you that her music will linger on your mind, which is exactly what I feel now.

 

Here, take a listen to Bishop Briggs EP and feel free to share with us what you think of the EP 🙂
