Undiscovered Gems – Olivia Reid, Everything by Electricity, Bayonne, Jimmy Beach

Olivia Reid returns with an infectious new single.  Wounds (Healing) has a groovy beat with an urban sensibility.  With every drop Reid digs into the melody with more attitude and stylistic flair.  It traces the vibes of both alternative R&B and indie pop gracefully.  For us it blends the worlds of Bon Iver, Charlotte Day Wilson, and Lizzy McAlpine.  That’s a large scope of influence, one that reflects the eclectic nature of Reid’s music. 

We definitely hear mainstream potential, with a strong element of underground influence to still connect with an indie audience hooked on supreme vibes.

Everything by Electricity is enchanting on their recent Goodbye.  The vocal’s buried distant design brings a haunting appeal.  The combination of the compositions dark melodic presences and the music’s intriguing minimalistic electro commitment is both hypnotic and cinematic.  It triggers your imaginative process in the spirit of classic dream pop or shoegaze.  In that way it connects with artists like Beach House and M83.  We also hear the minimalistic electro pop appeal of The XX. 

There’s an additional sensibility of Sinead O’Connor, an assimilation that’s accentuated through the songs companion video, one that references an iconic shot known to her most successful single.

Bayonne warps the sonic design of chill pop into an electro anthem with their new single Come Down.  The energy first erupts in the convincing vocal.  Full of conviction and emotional pump, it grabs you in that opening build.  The primary beat is configured with an intriguing cut time beat beneath snappy relentless claps.  The combination is intoxicating. 

They are ruthless with their drops, pulling back then unleashing the beat in tandem with the songs dramatic progressive evolution.  Altogether it’s an exhilarating release that delivers with an infectious catchy melody to match the impressive production.  Bayonne connects somewhere between Tame Impala, Biig Piig, and Dayglow.

Jimmy Beach captures the aura of the voyage and honors its continuum on his recent Spirit.  Lofi beats collde with movements in nu jazz on this stylistic breakthrough.  The drums bring a progressive appeal while the production shows an appreciate for experimental electronica to match the Jazz fusion intervention.  The project blends the chaotic catchy aggressive rock world of Mars Volta with the jazz induced compositions known to Pretty Lights.  We can dig it.
