[PREMIERE] MIDNIGHT - PRESSURE GRADIENT

Original Mix, Music, PremiereSara NatkinsComment

Beautiful Buzzz is absolutely delighted to have the honors of premiering rising artist midnight’s turbulent new single, “Pressure Gradient”. The stirring single comes as the first off his forthcoming EP, “Nocturne, which will be releasing via Majestic Casual.

Enlisting NY-based artist ylxr to spearhead the production, the two creatives bring their unsurpassed abilities to the table and develop a heart-rendering, contemporary ballad. The artists’ chemistry and the track’s mixing is nothing short of breathtaking. A relaxed, r&b-fused melody sets the foundation for the piece while midnight’s satiny-smooth voice provides a devastatingly beautiful contrast to the rollercoastering glitchy synths and jaw-dropping vocal chops that decorate the single. The result is both mesmerizing and intoxicating, sending listeners on a journey filled with musical complexities and deviating sounds.

midnight discusses the passionate thoughts that inspired the track and explains, “‘Pressure Gradient’ is birthed from the struggle to balance rebellion and restraint as a person of color living in a country terrorized by bigotry. The lyrics covet the simplicity of being in love while drowning in the anguish of that bigotry.” midnight’s passion seeps through the emotive single, leaving us awe-struck and bedazzled, and it surely will leave the same lasting effects on listeners.

BEAUVOIS - ESCAPE

Music, Original MixSara NatkinsComment

Beauvois, more commonly known by his indie-pop moniker, Kidswaste, has once again graced us with an exposé of versatility and musical brilliance. His fresh release “Escape” takes a different path than previous releases of this alias that took on a mellower vibe such as his last single “Jupiter”. In his most recent, the French singer, songwriter and musician assumes an earlier 2000’s indie/synth-pop sound comprised of upbeat chords and energized guitar riffs. It perfectly cultivates a heavy sense of nostalgia through indie rock elements such as those found in old school Matt & Kim while the 21 year old artist tops it off with his own vocals- ones that almost scarily resembles that of Thomas Mars, lead singer of (also) French indie-pop/new wave band Phoenix. All in all, if you’re looking for an “escape” from the long hours of work, and the continuously shortening days of winter, then this is definitely going to be your go-to.
