It's great to be featuring Chloe Collins on Alternative Fruit again. Her brilliant and brand new single Someone's Yesterday is hitting the airwaves and streaming all over the place. Since she was very small, Chloe Collins has been a fantastic performance artist. Singing before she started school and learning guitar before she was in double figures, this young lady has a lifetime of experience already. With her songs featured on TV in the States, it's no surprise that Chloe Collins has a growing following. Inspired by early Taylor Swift and Ed Sheeran, expect the intelligent and memorable.
Layers of guitar and drum bring out a smooth and vibrant theme before Chloe begins to sing. One mention of Texas and we understand where she's coming from. Progressive melody and emotional prowess evolves the music through verse to chorus though evocative guitar and sunny keyboards. Once bitten twice shy sensations describe the feeling of learned heartbreak and a real protectiveness that screams self-worth. Sometimes we have to, after-all. Beautiful and popular women are still people, even when they're super talented.

The Dublin based multi-talented music producer Neolithic is back with a second single. Writing, recording, and mastering his own material, Neo Morake has been a keen artist for over ten years. Having established his talent and presence over a winding road in his band Nobody's Heroes and as a local busker, this solo project is the latest branch on the tree of staves. Having grown up with The Matrix using his name, the archetypal character Neo has given the artist a serious shadow to fill. Both the fictional and the real life Neo want to corrupt a corrupt system, so let's go and find one and play this track in the process.
It begins with cheerful guitar strums that twang and vibrate in a rhythmic foray. Beats emerge and grow into a groove as Neolithic begins to rap with quick and competent lyrics. Melody rises gracefully and as the chorus breaks, a harmonisation begins to elevate the flow. More fast and intelligent lyrics roll from the microphone for another verse before that memorable and catchy chorus returns. A musical groove offers persistent chords and progression which stands as a platform for an artistic exploration of words.

It's a real pleasure to feature the stunning Aimee Broom in Alternative Fruit again. The Essex based singer is working with Safo Music who also brought names like Pixie Lott and Sam Smith into the scene. Now she's amassed over 100,000 plays so far and the number is growing every day. Being young and talented, Aimee Broom represents the voice of her generation with true to life experiences making up her songs.
The music opens with a vocal effect that resonates with many big artists who have used a similar design. Aimee really can sing and she begins her song in clean vocals straight away. Her range extends a long-distance scale during the first verse and soon the music reaches a chorus. Drums pound in with a catchy rhythm, the lyrics bounce on the beat with well-written syllables. A groovy underscore of synthesiser provides a bedrock of chord and melody that emphasises and enriches Aimee's fantastic singing.

Iconic, stand-out pop sensation Ger is ready with Love Tattoo. Raised in Cork by foster parents after his mother died young, Gerald O' Hanlon now lives in sunny Greece. Ger found solace in music and it enabled him to bond with people over the years. Forming a deep relationship with the feelings and imagery of the music industry, this 22-year-old bright light is following in the wake of many great names. After studying music at the University of Limerick, Ger released an iTunes national top ten hit no less than five times and received kudos from the magnificent Jessie J. A true cosmic alignment, the idea for Love Tattoo arrived at 4am while drunk at a party. With the notion in place, it didn't take long for the music to become reality thanks to Ger's skill and ability.
The music starts on a smooth melody accompanied by finger clicks and laid-back drumming. Ger begins to sing, his RnB honed vocal drizzles like rich and sharp coulée over ornately portioned beats. The song reaches out with vocal melody that branches from orchestral layers of synthesiser and drum. An amazing sonic range allows Ger to project his emotional dramatisation in leaping and twisting displays.

Melody and rock n roll make a great team, and Afterbliss show us how good it can be. Their third single has just been released, taking their Interpol and Muse inspired sound to the airwaves around the globe. Formed in 2019 after meeting in an online forum, a genuine shared taste in music compelled the band to put pen to paper. Since then they've accumulated tens of thousands of plays on Spotify and YouTube. This new track was mixed by Allan Kelly who also worked with Herbie Hancock and Kings Of Leon. The finishing touches were given by Fergal Davis who has also mastered songs by Muse and Sinead O'Connor.
It starts with a roar of synthesiser that builds with energy. Drums and guitar then pound in with a galloping beat. Synthesiser meets power chord progression as an exciting wave of uplifting and punchy energy rises from the verse. A chorus washes over like a break wave with speedboats and surfers. A dynamic edge progresses with the composition as quick-step drums and melodious guitars froth and bubble with harmony and rhythm.
