Twin Danger :: Coldest Kind of Heart

September 2nd, 2015 : Post by :: Categories
When you hear Twin Danger, you may automatically think it’s describing a pair of nefarious twins. However, Vanessa Bley 1/2 of Twin Danger describes the name as simply a person having two sides to themselves ( one good and one bad). One would describe their sound as Cocktail Jazz but to ask the band they would say it’s a mixture between Frank Sinatra and The Clash. Stuart Matthewman, the second half of Twin Danger was once the man behind another famous singer Sade(!). He lent his writing skills to two of her biggest hits; “No Ordinary Love” and “Your Love is King”. Vanessa also has an impressive pedigree as the daughter of legendary jazz pianist Paul Bley. With the foundation that had been set, it would almost seem as if these two were destined to connect at some point. On June 30 this year their self-titled debut album was released and which you can grab over at Itunes. Twin Danger may not be traditional in their sound, but the depth and quality of the music transcend any skepticism or uncertainty. So play on Twins…

Sean Nicholas Savage :: Suburban Nights

August 3rd, 2015 : Post by :: Categories

Sean Nicholas Savage’s “Suburban Nights”, which is off his new album Other Death, which is set to be released in September. “Suburban Nights” has a very mellow sound and Savage’s light vocals on top of the tranquil track are a perfect combination. The term easy listening comes to mind when playing this song because its so relaxing and serene and with its distinctive beat it’s sure to make anyone stop and take a listen. The Canadian born singer did everything right, from the vocals to the lyrics. Everything compliments the other and could very well be one of the best tracks off his upcoming record.
