We Will Never Surrender
Mick J. Clark is back with another brilliant song. After seeing the Extinction Rebellion peaceful protest on the news, Mick wrote a song for them. We Will Never Surrender is about the persistent need for pressure on society in order to change our dirty habits. It's time we cleaned the world up, if not for the beauty then for the stability of the climate. Both matter a lot. After writing the song and presenting it to the protest team, they were more than happy to put their name right at the top. What's more, anyone who kindly purchases the music will be donating to Greenpeace. They are a long-established climate and wildlife protection charity.
Smooth drums overlap a strumming guitar with a sleek and easy-going rhythm. Mick begins singing, he describes the situation really well. With poetic lines Mick J. Clark explains the emotions and feelings that govern the action of peaceful protest. Catchy lines sing out with multiple voices as the music builds with underlying keyboards which boost the chords. Creating a divide between those who care and those who don't is perhaps hoped to instil a sense of isolation in those who refuse to understand.
The song can be heard and bought from I Give You Give. Please give what you can for this monumental song.
The New York afrobeat and hip-hop star is making waves on this side of the ocean. Already a veteran performer with appearances at SOB's and the NYC Multicultural Arts Festival to highlight his resume, Tuu Ra makes us sit up and listen with this new track. Produced by Rico Da Producer and featuring recordings from Oluwa Rankee and Fasache, Tu Raa's latest continues the journey into catchy and thoughtful dance music.
With smooth rhythmic melody, strummed beats and plucked inflections begin the track. Effected vocals spill over like sunlight at dawn before the verse begins. Half rapped, half sung, the words slide into the groove revealed by the consistent tempo. Drums and backing vocal fill the space while the lead voice produces a river of syllables and lines that elevate the dancing pace.

Note To Self
Growing up with a special needs sibling gave Kayla a head start on life as she learned to be self-sufficient at an early age. As her parents focused on the child who needed it the most, Kayla developed personal relationships and began to learn about the realities of life. Discovering how many bullies there are in the world as well as how many manipulative people, Kayla found herself surrounded by toxicity and strained emotions. She thankfully found her light and the strength to stand apart in full knowledge that she is doing what she feels is best. Where the others call you weak for not being like them, it takes the strength of a crowd to successfully refuse.
The music starts with abstract notes, like reversed keyboards. A smooth mellow drum-beat throws in a groove as Kayla starts to sing. The composition swells and brings out a radiant burst of sound to bring the song into full flower. Kayla sings to her audience, she says that behind the smile is a jungle of emotions and tested boundaries. It can feel like a thousand beaks pecking at our integrity, at our self-determination, and at our sense of social standing. Is she singing to anyone in particular or does she mean herself? The moral perhaps works both ways, at polar opposites of itself.

Anatoli Tsampa left Athens to live in Germany for several years before moving to London during 2010. Her music career has emerged along the way as well as acting and performance, she's even been featured before on Alternative Fruit. Anatoli feels things deeply and likes her experiences to become works of art that can be expressed to us all. The recent track, Everything Different, wants to explore the sense of numbness after we loose someone we love.
Anatoli Tsampa sings immediately as the track begins with a humming melody. Pianos emerge to break the waters with spikes of sombre pitch. Sadness swells in the harmonies, everything's different keeps us thinking on the balance. We drift in wistful verses full of character and dreamy recollections then sink into the warm pool of effervescent emotions. The song journeys through progression and composition that build and grow as the moments pass into a new beginning.

She's A Hero
Hailing from Belfast in Northern Ireland, alternative rockers Saint Sapphire are reaching out across the land. With recent high profile gigs in the musical melting pot that is the London gig circuit, Saint Sapphire have seen massive growth in streaming and fans. Their music has been lapped up by several radio stations already, and as they release She's A Hero, it's certain that this current trend will continue.
A chunky guitar riff opens the track. Huge percussive chord strikes rumble along the drums until the singing begins. Clean vocals with a swagger and with attitude design a story before our ears. We are talking about an inspirational woman, one who is a free spirit and who doesn't read into other people's stories. Crazy guitars banish the quiet as blues style licks wash across the middle eight. Sweet fret-work bounces along the bars to create a thrust of rock'n'roll that culminates in the crunching and rhythmic main riff. I can imagine this band being amazing on stage.

Leon Marshall returns to Alternative Fruit with another new single. This BBC airtime club-member and semi-finalist of the UK Songwriting Contest is soaring right now. The last few months have seen huge amounts of radio-play and an expressive career flourishing all the time. This new track is called Better Man and was written after an argument with a woman that saw her throwing the contents of a refrigerator at our music star! It's never cool to do this, no matter what temperature the objects are. However, what was cool was the way Leon handled it. He wrote a song, one that's good enough to get on the radio and establish his musical path even further.
It begins with a smooth upbeat guitar phrase. Metallic chords strum a heart-warming tune while Leon Marshall sings about how he messed up. Well, if it was me I'd have shown her the door. No-one throws things at me and gets my love. However, Leon perhaps has low self-esteem and is happy to take someone's toxicity. Who knows? There I was thinking he was going to tell his abuser where to catch the bus but it seems I was wrong. I kinda lost respect for this guy after hearing this song but then I feel sorry for him too. Maybe he has Stockholm Syndrome. Then again, if someone said something so hurtful to me that I wanted to throw things at them, it's when I'd say goodbye.

She'll Be Gone
Some people are just born with a skill they can use from the start and Erin Bloomer is one of these lucky ones. Since she learned her first words, Erin Bloomer was singing her heart out. Now with millions of hits on Spotify, massive radio play, and a growing fan-base from around the nation and beyond, this Sussex based singer-songwriter returns with another gem.
Music and voice combine in an inventive sampled intro. Erin sings, her words leap from perch to perch on the neatly organised scale. The tone elevates, r'n'b style melody combines with a deep and resonant bass end to push the song into a musical high. The lyrics talk about someone recovering from the web of lies spun by an uncaring yet territorial other half, maintaining an illusion to keep their world in order. When the walls break down and we see someone for who they really are, we either cry for them or for ourselves.

After playing at Camden Rocks and Download, The Kut have made huge waves on national radio and written media. Alternative Fruit featured The Kut previously too, and now they're back with another gift to the radio. Princess Maha, the multi-instrumentalist composer and figure-head of the band, has yet more fiery energy to show that this is a group we will be hearing a lot more from.
It starts with a bouncy blues riff on a distorted electric guitar. A smooth rock beat surges the music as Princess Maha begins the first verse. A Nirvana sounding groove washes us in nostalgic allure while the fresh and modern sounding composition gives us a fun and enjoyable hit. The music builds, it progresses quickly into a ferocious heavy rock song, powerful and punchy. Drums smash through with massive bursts of tom-tom to culminate the chorus before that catchy guitar riff starts over. What makes a brilliant alternative rock outfit is only made better by the singer's fangs.

We are in Nashville today to catch a glimpse of Chloe Collins' new single. Already featured on Alternative Fruit and on national TV as part of ABC's The Vineyard and CBC's Nashville, Miss Collins is back like never before with yet more great sounding compositions. This latest one, Didn't Want You, continues on the thread of mixing her ideas with feels from Ed Sheeran's quirky style with Taylor Swift's inventive lyrics. Balancing the direction with multiple layers of creativity really helps to define Chloe Collins as a true country artist.
A digitally edged drumbeat opens the track before a smooth guitar peels open the chords. Chloe Collins starts singing, her words are like a story describing a moral dilemma. She knows that the person she is with still has feelings for someone who rejected them. In a bipolar escapism from the truth of separation, clinging on helps to dull the pain. Telling ourselves that it will be back to normal soon is rejecting the truth in the present moment. Can we look into Chloe Collins' eyes and not want her completely? She makes a great point.
