Heaven I Know, Gordi’s Beautiful and Powerful New Single Just Released

Oh my God! For all Gordi’s fans, you must be feel so overwhelm when you hear this news. Yes! Gordi finally released her brand new single called Heaven I Know. This song actually already released since June 12th 2017, but how can I not know about this before. So sorry for the late news. 😦

Honestly, I’m so speechless and I think I almost cry when the first time I hear Heaven I Know. I don’t know how to describe about how awesome this song, but this is so beautiful. Gordi definitely a musical genius. The combination from all elements in this song makes everything so perfect to hear. From the repeated whispered rhythm at the beginning then Gordi’s beautiful voice with piano chords and a simple bytes, the electronic sounds, trumpet, the looping, and the sound layers at the end of the song. The lyrics also makes me speechless. Somehow, the way Gordi sing this song makes people understand how she feels towards the lyrics in this song.

I just read about the review of Heaven I Know in Atwood Magazine website. This article is so touching, beautiful, and makes me more understand about this song. The writer wrote about Heaven I Know is as much about dealing with loss as it is about growing older and accepting adulthood’s compromises and the challenges you can’t win. Gordi also said, “With a friendship, you almost throw more at it than you would a romantic partner, because when a friendship breaks it’s so much more heart-breaking”.

Yes, it is something different when you have to lose someone who really important for you, who really understand you more than you do, who made you a better person, or someone who already become your own sanctuary. That kind of relationship has more powerful connections than romantic relationship, but one thing that we can not prevent is time. As the time goes by, as we grow older, we will face so many things that might prevent us to have direct communication with our closest friend. Maybe they got a boyfriend, got engaged, get married, move to another place, have a children, got a new job, and suddenly you lose them because you are no longer their priority. Somehow, I know we can’t prevent all the adulthood things because everybody grows up someday, but I’m sure no one wants to lose their closest friend. That is the struggle that we have to face in the future when we’re adult. But I wish I can keep my closest friend forever and always make them as my priority. Good luck to all of you out there who fight for your closest one because you know it is worthy to fight for. Heaven I Know That We Tried, right? 🙂

Oh my! I think I already talk to much. But, I can’t wait to hear Gordi’s debut album Reservoir which will released in August 25th 2017. So excited! For now, why don’t you try to hear Gordi’s beautiful and powerful new song, Heaven I Know. Just press the Spotify button below and share your thoughts and opinion towards this song.

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.

Call Me by Kate Nash

Kate Nash is back! This time, she’s back with her brand new single called Call Me. I can’t stop listening to this great song since it released on last Friday. That’s why I choose this song as my currently listening for this week.

Melodically enjoyable, lyrically incredible. That’s the first thing that crosses in my mind when the first time I heard this song in Spotify. Call Me has a very catchy melodies from the combination between the guitar’s sound on the chorus, the beat of drum, clapping hands, and of course, the smooth and beautiful voice from Kate Nash herself already made this song so enjoyable, powerful, and really worth to hear. Absolutely and totally a great treat for me.

From some sources that I read, Kate Nash explained about the meaning of this song which I think really deep, motivate, and powerful lyrics. “Call Me is about going through a lot of stuff and surviving it, hitting your lowest point and coming back from that. Once you have, you can help other people get through it too. It’s about pain being useful as it can be used as advice and support and wisdom when other friends/best friend/loved ones go through rough patches. Call on me when you go through it.”

Not just an enjoyable song, but also a meaningful song, right? Her brand new EP, The Agenda, will be released on April 21st digitally. Can’t wait. So, while we wait for her EP, why don’t you try to listen this song and tell us what do you think. Thank you and enjoy the music folks.

Album Review

Album Review: Resonate from Nosoyo

Another interesting album that I found in the beginning of 2017. This time it comes from Berlin-based alternative indie-pop duo band, Nosoyo. I accidentally found one of their irresistible songs called Old Soul through Spotify and I totally falling in love with this song at the first hear. Donata Kramarz (vocalist)  and Daim de Rijke (drummer) definitely bring something relaxing and great treat for our ears. Their music character is so calm with the touch of piano tunes and the beat of the drums makes the melodies so addicting.

Nosoyo just released their debut LP Resonate which was released on February 17th 2017. This LP include 11 great songs. They put Old Soul as the opening song for their LP. Somehow this song success to give a great first impression about this album and makes me curious with another songs. The melodies and the tunes of piano plus Donata Kramarz’s voice perfectly fit each other and makes this song so beautiful and really addicting. Losing Time also has a catchy melody to hear.

Next song is 6 or 7 Weeks. From my opinion, this song is quite unique and I really love Kramarz’s voice in this song. Her voice so smooth and the way she said ‘six’ over and over again at the chorus reminds me the way Joe Newman from Alt-J sang. I think it will be awesome if this two great bands singing together. Nosoyo makes the music beat a little faster with a song called Resonate. Somehow, this song will be a great driving song. I can imagine myself drive while singing this song. Maybe a little bit dancing.

After an upbeat song, Nosoyo slow the tempo with As Close As We Get. The sound of piano tunes is quite thick in this song, but I really enjoy this song. Get Used is one of my most favorite song in this album beside Old Soul. This song has a catchy pop elements that makes you just wanna sing. Stuck in the Dark contain sound from electro instruments which makes a really nice beat to hear.  The Weight might not be my favorite one, but the sound of the drum still gives you chills when you hear it.

Disillusioned become another my favorite song in this album. This song has a cheerful melodies which I think it will give you some mood booster if you hear it in the morning. Okay, I think almost of the song in this album become my favorite. Another my favorite song is One Way. Actually this song is a quite simple song, but it has its own muse. The sound of keyboard combined with drum and Kramarz’s voice makes everything so good melodically. Hill To Climb definitely a great song to close the journey of this album. This song has an upbeat melody.

Well, that’s my opinion about Nosoyo’s brand new LP. If you haven’t hear it yet, why don’t you try to listen this awesome duo band music and let us know what’s your opinion. Thank you and enjoy the music folks.
