NEW SINGLE: “Cowboy” by Alyssa Trahan

Multi-talented, country Singer and Songwriter (also, one of our lovely featured artists) Alyssa Trahan, has recently released a new single titled “Cowboy”. It has certainly got the catchy Taylor Swift-esque appeal; with the addition of passionate vocals and a message that encapsulates raw, traditional country fare with undeniable charm.

The official music video, produced by Optic Sky Productions and directed by Chantal Massuh – sees Alyssa falling for the handsome albeit slippery bad boy, who seems unable to settle down with just one lady. The message is clear and as the lyrics suggest: “save yourself, the heartbreak; if he finds you, run away.” As I’ve said before, Ms. Trahan is both professional and wise beyond her years.

I’ll leave you now, to enjoy the rhythm!

rhythm approved: PENDULUM

who: Pop/R&B, Singer & Songwriter FKA Twigs

why: It’s never a bad thing, when a new single gives you a refreshing whiff of nostalgia. The voice, the rhythm, the lyrics – recall the days of that “red light special” R&B, that we remember fondly; albeit with a blush of ignorance, if we were too young at the time to listen to that music. This rebirth of the classic sound, comes with a special kick that’s on another level – quite possibly another planet. Unique, is the word of the day.
