With a vibe similar to “Talking Heads”, Underworld releases the album, Barbara Barbara, We face a shining future after a six year hiatus. The album is a testament to their electronic nature. The British band, consisting of Karl Hyde and Rick Smith, combine electronic music with deep bass lines, rhythmic percussion and pretty average vocals. Read the rest of this entry »

Cardiknox-Potrait

March 29th, 2016 by Margaret Jokoh

cover170x170-4Cardiknox-Portrait

Released: March 11, 2016

Rate: 7/10

Cardiknox a duo from New York City, recently released their LP Portrait and it is a mix of disco, dance pop and synth. If you like Marina and the Diamonds, Chvrches or even Sky Fierra you will definitely enjoy this album. Though a duo, Cardiknox creates such a huge sound that completes its lyrically honesty. The song, “Shadowboxing” chronicles a relationship, and fighting for someone and musically captures the moment perfectly, making listeners like you and me able to not only picture but also feel what they went through or trying to convey. Their vocalist, has such a huge voice that compliments their sound very well. The two are signed to Warner Brothers, who have artist like Echosmith, I believe with an up and coming artist like Cardiknox, that they would compliment Echosmith very well on any upcoming tour they may have. There is not much to say about the album, the music speaks for itself. Their immense honesty speaks for itself. I would definitely, check them out because they definitely have that “it” factor!
