B. Miles is infectious on her recent single The Year I Felt Cool. An intoxicating groove with indie pop appeal and alt R&B influence, it casts a broad range of interest and could expand her fanbase. The aesthetic matches her dynamic voice, full of attitude and sultry flavor, she dictates these vibes effectively. The companion video matches her intellect. The fluid modern dance choreography is exciting and boosted with conceptual flash by the videos existential undertones. Our experience is what you make it after all, it’s better to flow through life then move like a gear on a machine.
The abstract choreography is fresh and fun whereas this dance style can sometimes transmit awkward. Dancer Matt Johnson remains within the feelings and the fabric of the song. Hats off for choreographers Paul McHill and Director Evan Daves. The tight team is full force awesome. Somewhere between Jayda G and Moby, The Year I Felt Cool belongs on the dance floor but also feels just right to serenade you beneath a starry night.

Proteins of Magic caught our attention with their new release Divine Physics. The artists rare intriguing delivery is striking and captivating. Paired with the dramatic performance and design of the companion video, Divine Physics is notable high art. Hauntingly beautiful with gothic undertones and dark compositional swings. Her brooding bellow brews in contrast to pops soprano obsessions. She manages it effectively, finding the medium between Sinead O Connor and Marianne Faithful but with a dark wave twist and some Annie Lennox influence. It’s fair to place her next to acts like The Knife or Nick Cave. The video does her art justice. Take it all in!
Step into a Retro Time Machine in the music video for Mall Walker the new single from SLOW CODA. The song is reminiscent of proto punks The Cars with an indie sensibility known to Ra Ra Riot.

The attention to detail is impressive and ironically delicious.
