Sweeping, epicly sweeping is the feeling you get when listening to Analog Rebellion. Unbridled creativity oozes forth from each and every line, matched with great visuals and the listener is caught up in a whirl of sound that builds toward a fantastic finish, it is the sonic version of riding a roaring rocket then braking through the clouds to the most beautiful sunrise ever seen. Analog Rebellion is the solo, independent music project of Aledo, Texas songwriter Daniel Hunter. Hunter writes, records and performs all of his own music, and refers to his sound as “Stadium Lo-Fi”, an oxymoronic synthesis of the Lo-Fi genre and Stadium Rock genre.
The Bright’s newest video for “Over and Over” is a creative way of portraying one side of a love story. The song describes the different things that were important to the singer throughout the relationship, and the video shows the struggle and love in different scenes throughout. It’s almost like remembering the relationship enchants and haunts her at the same time because she wants the relationship to be restored once more.
Emmeline, a singer/songwriter from Dallas, Texas, has something different about her. She has a beautiful voice that’s clear, crisp, smooth, and it brings such a warm feeling to anyone who hears it. With such a voice, one would think that all of Emmeline’s songs would center around flowery, happy things, but that’s not always the case. Her lyrics describe different situations she’s been in, different stories that may portray the struggle in other people’s lives, and they may make the listener want to turn other things off just so they can concentrate on the story being told. That’s what she does: she demands your attention but in a subtle way. No extraneous sound effects, no auto-tune, just pure music.
