Cheeky Los Angeles-based singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist Gavin Haley has just released his vulnerable new EP, ‘Unfolding’.
Presented as an irresistible alternative pop sound with a hip-hop undercurrent offset by acoustic guitar and confessional lyrics, his feel-good music is both modern and connective.
Unfolding “a series of growing pains through music“, it’s a complex juxtaposition of actions and feelings, as Haley explains in more detail,
“I grew up in church, but I also raced bikes and listened to rap music when I could hide it from my family. I feel like I brought elements to this music from every area I’ve drawn inspiration from, but still staying me. Each song is its own story, and I hope this project connects with the people who find it and brings us closer. I wrote Unfolding almost entirely in a few days.”
The track ‘Self Control’ features Izzy Bizu and you can watch the video below:
The new EP is out now on Red Bull Records.
Sounds like: Easy Life, Shawn Mendes, Gareth Pugh, Jack Hawitt
Setting the mood with their live four-track EP, British alt-pop trio Flawes share ‘Lowlights’, out now via Red Bull Records.
With echoes of classical pianist Ludovico Einaudi and even the soundtrack for Baz Luhrmann’s Romeo + Juliet, the stripped-back ‘Don’t Count Me Out’ gives the listener an opportunity to get to know the band on a much deeper level, as the band remove their invisible rockstar barrier.
Undeterred by lockdown, the band has also been recording and releasing a series of isolation sessions, with each member performing remotely from their own home.
Who is UNSECRET you ask. Well, it turns out that no one really knows. It could be a producer, it could be a collective. We are not entirely sure, but one thing we do know is that UNSECRET’s new single with Australian singer, Butterfly Boucher is a summer corker!
Conjuring up an image of a ‘Joyride’ in new single of the very name, the retro beat is in a pop race with Boucher’s luscious vocals and anthemic lyricism.
