It's time to visit Superfecta from London today as they prepare to release a brand new EP. Their hit song Mannequin has been given a fresh dose of charm with a brand new acoustic version. The band wants to remind us how we know them, and why we love their sound. Their music has been played on several radio stations around the world already, which has helped increase their following to numbers beyond their local field.
With an easy-going drum-beat the music begins with a blues bounce that bobs along on guitar. A shimmering sound strikes an ambience through the progression as lyrics begin to holler. Rock delivery and punchy quick-fire lines decorate the casual and folky music with fireworks. A violin adds yet more melody in a catchy and upbeat layer of composition. A completely new take on the track from the original, it's clear that this band have a diverse capacity to make music. I can't wait to hear the new songs!

We are in Nashville, Tennessee, for today's new music in review. Rock duo The Criticals are walking in the footsteps of bands like Jane's Addiction, The Stone Roses, and The Doors. Their mission is to be all about the energy and that's what they've achieved with great press already rolling in. Only formed in 2018, their fresh sound and inspiring image is just what we need.
It begins with a snappy drum-beat. Slicing snare and kick bounce us along as a guitar begins to strum a melodic chord. Lyrics begin, poetic lyrics with quick melodic syllables riff along with the rock'n'roll rhythm. A bass with a crunching distortion adds a new layer of tune that rumbles in a thumping underlay. The dynamic and fast-progressing structure builds up with varying degrees of energy and sensation, each time leading us into a seriously catchy chorus.

T Jae Cole
This fantastic vocalist has worked with Tom Jones, Ed Sheeran, Sam Smith, and Ellie Goulding. Now with his own sound and an eye-striking image to go with it, T Jae Cole has put his reliable talent to use for himself. Working with the 14 top-ten hits so far Omnivi3e production team, plus sharing the same producer as Terence Trent D'Arby and Peter Andre will no doubt propel this bright star into the constellations.
The music starts with a great folk melody and bouncy guitars. Classic strings twang and resonate on the rhythm as T Jae Cole begins to sing. His colourful, Spanish delivery gives rise to all kinds of dancing moves and exotic sensations. The song hits us like a party tune, one that gets the blood pumping with great grooves and catchy chorus lines that never cease. This short and snappy track will sound great in the club or on the radio.

Let's Do It Again
Alternative Fruit is over the moon to be asked to comment once more on the direct descendent of retro music star Bobby Womack. Nephew Binky has made a name for himself already, regardless of his super-star family tree. Having played guitar for icons such as Chaka Khan and Bonnie Rait, produced records by Snoop Dogg and TUPAC, Binky Womack is now taking centre stage with his own sound.
With funky chords on a clean guitar and a neat passage of bass drum, the music opens. Synths add a harmonising layer in a wash of luminous flow. Let's do it again opens on female vocals with a foundation of male voice lower in the mix. Lush blues and rhythm spill out in doses of percussive poetry. Amazing fills on the guitar add a dynamic element which sloshes and ripples in the vibrating bass. Male vocals take briefly over, and duo with the lady to create a multi-directional tone. A sunny, laid-back, and easy going tune pours in graceful and generous bars.

The music begins with a percussive melody. Bells and drums combine to make an uplifting sway into the first verse. Clara Hurtado begins to sing. Her voice climbs up into the framework of the song and begins gymnastic routines. Hook-lined vocal passages lead through progressive rhythms and dancing sensations. An easily recognisable selection of instruments gives the music an edge that compliments Clara's voice exquisitely.

Mental-health awareness advocate and award-winning singing talent Anthony Rubery releases his brand new EP. Antisocial is a collection of five amazingly written and recorded tracks that showcase the vocalist's talent and range. Writing his own songs, Anthony Rubery takes inspiration from stars like Ed Sheeran as well as hip-hop production vibes he's picked up along the way. The new single is taken from the record. Overdue is perhaps a word many of us can feel and relate to. Let's see what this song is all about.
A strummed steel-string acoustic portrays a thoughtful groove as Anthony's voice flies out of crevices in the tone. An evocative and melancholy voice saunters along the chords as dreamy emotions fall like globules of rain. Strings find a niche within the composition, they boost the minor key with a touch of cinematica. Slow progression with upbeat elements with the lyrics lend us a song that feels like a love song to circumstance. It culminates with a burst of sunny electric guitar that swings in with a hammer-blow of sound. The chorus repeats and we are lifted into the spirit of the song even further.

The Plastic Pals
Swedish Douglas Adams fans The Plastic Pals celebrate their fifteenth anniversary as a band. What better way to mark the occasion than to release yet more amazing music. This new single is taken from their forthcoming EP. This Spring release will no-doubt provide us all with some much needed respite and entertainment as many of us undergo national quarantine.
The music starts with grungy guitars and massive beats that thunder in a rock n roll groove. Vocals come almost immediately, fun and choppy licks mirror the lines in fresh and upbeat phrases. Blues and heavy rock combine with a dusty production that lends a sense of warmth. Light doses of compression line each instrument to place them perfectly together in the room. Punchy, quick, and memorable, Plastic Pal is one to put on the happy-day playlist.
