Like our Facebook page (www.facebook.com/muzikspeaks)



Courage My Love are a pop-punk trio from Ontario, Canada which consists of twin sisters, Mercedes (lead vocals and guitar) and Phoenix Arn-Horn (drums, keyboard and backing vocals) and bassist, Brandon Lockwood.

The band are currently gearing up to release their second full-length album, Synesthesia, and ‘Stereo’ is one of the singles to be taken from the record.

The song is heavily influenced by electro-pop with a slight pop-punk edge to it. The use of synths is superb throughout the track and its got a very full-on, all-consuming sound to its choruses.

The music video is interesting too – it’s very retro and has visual effects which are reminiscent of the VHS era with glitchy lines running through it, stacks of TVs with white noise on them and old-fashioned telephones. Check it out below!

#WildCardWednesday: Everything Everything – ‘Distant Past’

Everything Everything

Everything Everything‘s song ‘Distant Past’ is today’s #WildCardWednesday; its a must-hear!

Their music style has been described as a clever mix of R&B, Glitch-Pop and Electronica. These styles have quite a difference in age; I was super intrigued to hear how R&B mixes with modern-day Glitch music.

Their music structure is relatively complex too, ‘Distant Past’ is split into a few sections of varied styles. This is just one of many unique songs made by the Manchester-based band, Everything Everything.

This blend of sounds is quite new, and I totally dig it! What else really stuck out to me was their overall aesthetic; the album art, music videos – it all works so well together!

Also try figuring out this video!
