Honey&Eve | I Speak Through Storms


Pictures coming soon!


Our mother nature offers all the elements necessary for giving life and nurturing us as individuals. It serves as the foundation for our economy, culture, and even our essential existence. Our forests, rivers, oceans, and soils give us the food we consume, the air we breathe, and the water we irrigate our crops. They also provide us with the air that we breathe. Natural resources are often taken for granted and overexploited because they are available for no cost. We need to safeguard our mother earth since our very survival is dependent on the health of this planet. Earth offers all the resources necessary to survive both living and nonliving things. Our activities that impair the ecosystem have resulted in irreversible damage to the environment, which has resulted in the deterioration of the state of this planet’s environment. As said, “Study nature, love nature, stays close to nature.

There are very few ways to transfer such vital messages to people who are usually ignored. On the other hand, music is a mode of expression that no one can disregard. Such a song is about the heartache of Mother Nature, who is dissatisfied with the way humans are treating the standard connection that they established millions of years ago between themselves and each other.

I feel pretty amused through the “Dark” theme. What amused or inspired you?

Who are Honey&Eve?

With the help of singer and actress Hannah Zieziula and producer/sound engineer Alexander Khromov, Honey&Eve hopes to shake up the pop industry and build their distinctive style. Both began their musical careers as gospel choir singers or as multi-instrumentalists at a young age, depending on their interests. With hints of cinematic soundscapes, the Pop Duo delivers dark, alternative Pop with a cinematic feel. The two met at the beginning of 2020 when the world seemed to have come to a complete stop. Because of their relatively modern origins, Hannah and Alex met online through a mutual friend; the two hit it off immediately and soon collaborated on musical projects. They felt compelled to slightly boost the pop world with their sound, which uniquely combines orchestral music, low songs, and delicate blues vocals. Honey & Eve were formed due to the influence of artists such as Lana Del Rey and Lorde and the absolute legend Hans Zimmer.

Honey & Eve were formed in 2020, or at the very least, that is when they began streaming tracks on Spotify. Despite being a relatively new band, they quickly build a reputation for creating entertaining and controversial music. They collaborated with two different producers to create two versions of the song: a metal-rock version and an electronic version. Finally, Alex provides a trap version and two other instrumentals to complete the package. Honey & Eve has been featured in It is All Indie, Roadie Music, YMX, Musik Blog, Amazing Radio, and various other publications and radio stations, demonstrating that they are not overlooked.

I Speak Through Storms by Honey&Eve Review

If we look deeper into the theme of ‘I Speak through Storms,’ we will discover that it is about the interaction between nature and humanity. Mother Nature is dissatisfied with the way humanity has treated their close relationship. This tune uniquely intrigues the listener because of its mysterious and dark approach. There is gloom, and a sense of ‘quiet tension’ permeates the lyrics, which shifts dramatically as the song progresses towards its conclusion. You have to admire the amount of enthusiasm evident in this rendition of the song. The Berlin-based duo, who describes their music as “dark-pop,” blended alternative and electro-pop elements to create a unique sound.

Vocalist Hannah and multi-instrumentalist Alex are cultivating a new breed; it is difficult to define their sound without giving a nod to contemporary pop sounds.

On the other hand, Hannah’s vocals are driven by grit and a distinct style that works with the instrumentation to propel the tune forward. Unlike many other tracks that would overwhelm the singer with instruments, this one works with each part to create a seamless listening experience that is enjoyable and easy to listen to.

What’s Next for Honey&Eve?

According to my current knowledge, no new music from Honey & Eve is scheduled to be released soon. Make sure to like and follow below for any new updates and music announcements that may occur.

Thank You Notes

I want to thank Hannah for providing me with the information I needed to publish this article. I am excited to watch how their duo career develops from here.


Thank you for taking the time to read this, and I hope you have a wonderful weekend. Remember to respect one another and treat others the way you would like to be treated yourself.

Raina Sokolov-Gonzalez | 40 Days



There is an allure in mystery, and we are often captivated by the things we can’t explain. The trope surrounding the silent, brooding, and mysterious character is seen in many novels, movies and even musicians. It’s no surprise then that while reading the editorial on Brooklyn-based singer/composer, Raina Sokolov-Gonzalez, that the overarching theme was one of mystique. The editorial focused on the elements and key players involved in creating the music video for “40 Days”, a “slow-burning single” by RSG (as she is fondly referred). While I’m able to envision and appreciate the complex beauty-in-the-cracks interpretation on RSG’s music video, I’m plagued with the thought, “Are there more layers to the artist, waiting to be unearthed?”

And with my pickaxe in hand, I began my journey along the musical tunnel of Raina Sokolov-Gonzalez.

Who is Raina Sokolov-Gonzalez?

Born into a cadre of musicians, Raina Sokolov-Gonzalez is the fourth member of her familial band. Her mother – a teacher of music, composer, and singer; her father – a playwright, pianist, and poet; followed by her brother – a producer and composer, all play a role in the creation of the artist. Surrounded by these musical enthusiasts, the path chosen by RSG should come as no surprise, but her family’s impact did more than steer her career, it moulded her, as we see elements from each member of her musical tribe fusing to form this harmonious Super Saiyan (a reference I hope my Japanese manga readers can appreciate).

A significant milestone for any artist, RSG’s debut album was released on May 21st, 2021. The title, “If They’re Mine”. The artwork for the album cover is a contemporary collage created by the German artist, The Scissorhands, and it fuels the mystery motif of RSG as faces on the cover are hidden and the rearranged cut-outs mask the identity of individual/s in the collage.

40 Days by Raina Sokolov-Gonzalez Review

The 7-track debut begins with the song “Better Half” and as the seconds pass and the music swells, I can hear RSG’s vocal layers and enticing harmonies. However, the light and airy harmonies are a contrast to the lyrical content in the song. The track is defiant, honest, and vulnerable, as RSG gives the listener a private reading from her internal diary. She expresses fatigue with various aspects of her life, from family-related matters to acknowledging her own tedious self-destructing behaviour, including my favourite line “I won’t admit to myself, I’m bad for my health” – Preach!

The album is laden with cool jazz influences and the relaxed tempo transported me to a dimly lit New York Jazz Lounge with a Manhattan in hand. Me, the jazz band, the backup singers and the headliner, Ms. Raina Sokolov-Gonzalez.

One highly discussed single from the album is “40 Days” and I must admit I didn’t realize the complexities of the title until I listened to the song and all the pieces started coming together. The song begins with a lone piano key and what I’ve coined at this point of the album as the Signature RSG Intro – haunting harmonies aplenty; and as any avid music listener would tell you, when an artist chooses to start a song with a piano ballad, it’s time to pull out your tissues and prepare for a good cry. 40 Days appears to be a song about heartbreak and knowing you should let go of someone but being unable to execute the necessary act. RSG is engulfed with emotions and like anyone coping with the end of a relationship, she is bombarded with thoughts and shared memories of the person she once loved and dare I say it, still loves.

What intrigued me more than the song was the title choice. 40 days and 40 nights is a biblical term that appears numerous times throughout the book, but the most interesting occurrence to me is the story of Jesus fasting in the wilderness for – you guessed it! 40 days and nights. All while being constantly approached with temptation. Is it plausible then that RSG is likening the withdrawal from the fast in the wilderness to the separation she feels after the relationship? Being constantly met with the tempter in her dreams? The metaphor is a literature lover’s paradise. Brava Raina, Brava.

What’s Next for Raina Sokolov-Gonzalez?

Amidst the recent release of her music video for 40 Days, RSG has been performing at various venues across New York and she is also set to embark on her first European tour in February 2022.

Faybee | Lonely Girl

Loneliness and isolation can overcome someone with the biggest ego, you know like those people who say that they’re happy with themselves and don’t need a relationship?

I know for sure that I feel lonely everyday and even though my life is great and at times I think i don’t need anyone, I know that’s just not true.

Everyone wants someone who can make them laugh even when they are elderly.

That’s just a fact of life.

Lonely Girl by Faybee Review

Dinah Is | I’m New



What I love about Dinah, is that she is willing to keep me accountable. I did not put out my best work when I released the Musosoup Feature earlier this month and Dinah politely called me out on it.

This is my formal apology to her and those musicians… I was probably tired when writing them, but that’s not an excuse that warrants lazy reviews. I am deeply sorry and here to make it up to you all!

In the immortal words of Hannah Montana: everybody makes mistakes, ever body has those days.

I hold myself to a higher standard for this blog.

Thank you Dinah for your patience,

  7. Conclusion

Who is Dinah Is?

Dinah Is is a singer-songwriter and assistant producer from Bergen, Norway. Her major influences derive from jazz hip hop artists like Mac Miller and Tom Misch as well as pop icons such as Lorde and Sigrid.

After her successful debut release of Thinking Backwards in 2020, Dinah is hoping for even more success with “I’m New” which was released in early July 2021.

I’m New by Dinah Is Review

I really like Dinah’s voice, it definitely reminds me of Sigrid, and it’s got a nice nostalgic vibe to it as well. Especially her first song, Thinking Backwards.

I’m New is a more happy nostalgic song that lightly lifts the mood, which is a perfect way to describe her sound.

I would love to hear more acoustic versions of her songs in the future, or maybe even a stripped back version of her work. I feel like she could take her music in so many directions, and I think that she has a lot of potential.

What’s Next for Dinah Is?

As of right now, I am not aware of any new music coming out anytime soon for Dinah Is. Make sure you like and or follow below for any new updates and new music announcements.

Christy P Klotz | Ghosted | Halloween Special


Christy P. Klotz


According to The College Voice, “ghosting (is) the act of slowly cutting someone out of your life romantically by ending all contact and ignoring your former partner’s attempts to communicate”.

Origins of ghosting began in 2011 when most dating apps became popular, and became widely known in 2015 after Charlize Theron broke up with Sean Penn by ghosting him.

In 2016, Plenty of Fish claimed that nearly 78% of single millennials had been ghosted at least once.

So why do people ghost? Is it a fear of seeing the other one cry? A fear of feeling ashamed?

Or is it just plain cowardice?

To me Halloween is a celebration of what we fear the most.

So this Halloween, I want those who have ghosted to ask themselves … why? For those who have been ghosted, I want you to ask yourself why that might have happened. The answer might be either extremely terrifying or extremely puzzling. But maybe, it might create a bit of change in your life.

Who is Christy P Klotz?

Christy P Klotz is an L.A. based artist who began as a Christian musician. She enjoys creating music that brings people together while evoking shared emotion.

Christy pulls her influences from the likes of Taylor Swift, Ingrid Andress, Julia Michaels, and many more.

Apart from music, Christy has a master’s degree in Science in Ministry from Pepperdine University. She has also created a book of poetry called Perspectives: Poems to a Dear Friend.

Ghosted by Christy P Klotz Review

There’s a relatable element that this song obviously has, and that’s why I think this song will touch so many. There’s always that “I will be fine and this will never happen” feeling you get in the beginning of a new relationship.

No body wants to get ghosted. That’s just a universal fact, and it’s normal these days sadly.

Christy really hammers this down in this song, and I think her vocals hauntingly say the words that everyone’s head says when they’ve been ghosted.

This song is great for fans of Phoebe Bridgers, Sasha Sloan, and other female pop musicians.

What’s Next for Christy P Klotz?

Right now, Christy is currently *ghosting* the music scene… Fortunately for us, she did tell me that she will be back with new material sometime in the near future. Click the links below to make sure you’re in the know!

I would like to thank Christy for sending me this article and press photos/videos. I hope she is spooked by how cool this article looks!

TJ North

TJ North (Credit to David Wells)

Discovered by Grammy Nominated artist Eric Alexandrakis, TJ North has released his debut single “Methuselah”. His debut single breaks away from some of the more concussive songs on his upcoming album.

The song reminds me of Bon Iver, and I like the acoustic guitar in this song. His voice is powerful. However, this song is supposed to be a love poem, but nonetheless it still reminds me of Bon Iver. I look forward to hearing more.


K THX BYE (Credit to Orlando Welsh)

K THX BYE is made up of vocalist Lyndsi Austin, producer Chris Qualls, and drummer Danny DeLeon. Following their successful debut single (Hurts Like Hell), PCH is the perfect driving home at the end of summer song when you’re thinking about fun drunk nights on the beach.

PCH reminds me greatly of what I like about dream pop, it’s also a great reminder of why electronic pop is so appealing to me. It blends the sounds of CHVRCHES and Elohim with a unique, catchy riff and chorus. This is great for fans of nostalgic and electronic pop.


Yannon (Credit to Tim Gebauer)

St. Louis based singer-songwriter, Yannon is inspired by gut-wrenching ballads, choral-esque harmonies, and bass lines. Cohesion is full of that and soulful synthpop, jazzy and tender vocals.

I absolutely love Yannon, she already knows that I really like her music. I get chills when listening to the song “Robin”, it’s such a well produced song. Definitely, I am intrigued to work further with this upcoming musician. Yannon is perfect for fans of pop jazz and Sylvan Esso.


Hui. (Artwork by Lekhaa Nair)

Hui is the work of Hugh William Davies and producer Rino Darusman who met at the University in Melbourne (Australia) and began working together in 2018. Hui’s main influences include Radiohead, Nick Drake, The Paper Kites, and more.

When listening to the track “Saganaki”, I think of Night Bus Revival, and when listening to “Worth” I think of Thom Yorke. The two songs in this way are not too different, because they are both sad acoustic poems. I like it! Hui is perfect for fans of Radiohead, acoustic singer-songwriters, and lo-fi.

Route 500

Route 500

Route 500 is a new Brighton independent project that explores the human psyche and streams of consciousness paired with compelling vocals and lo-fi sounds. The dark and thrilling new release, “Hit Zero”, takes the project to a new level with inspiration from a time in a monotonous period of living in a hotel room earlier this year.

Bedroom pop is the new dark pop, especially when it comes to this song! I love the vibe in this hauntingly beautiful song, and the video really adds to the vibe. Route 500 would appeal to fans of The Howl and The Hum, and other related bands.

Simon and the Island | EP Review

Simon Ward


In 2012, The Strumbellas released their first album My Father and the Hunter. My favorite song on that album is “Lakes”.

In 2013, they released their sophomore album We Still Move on Dance Floors. My favorite song on that album is “In This Life”.

In 2016, Hope was released and gained attention across the music industry. Although this whole album is full of greatness, “Spirits” is my favorite song.

In 2019, Rattlesnake was released and I will admit, that even though I haven’t heard the entire album… But, “Running Scared (Desert Song)” would have to be my favorite.

Most recently, Simon released his first ever solo EP Simon and the Island. And having listened through, “Muse” stands out to me the most.

So why am I being such a fanboy?

It feels good to express how my love for these songs and Simon’s music. And, well if you want to demonstrate that you are a fan of Simon’s work, you need to know at least 3 of these songs. Just in case you haven’t, I’ve included the music videos for each in this article.

Lakes by The Strumbellas (2012)

Who is Simon and the Island?

For any new fan of Simon Ward, you’ll quickly learn that Simon’s raw lyrics are often engulfed in emotion, flowing by on a sea of poppy melodies.

Following his success with his Canadian-based band, The Strumbellas, Simon looks to bring his words of unspoken truths to a deeper level.

In This Life by The Strumbellas (2013)

Simon and the Island EP Review

There’s a deep feeling of desperation that listeners can relate to, especially if they’re struggling. Simon has a talent for grabbing onto the listener’s emotions and therapeutically soothe them, even when you least expect it. This was evident with the music from The Strumbellas, but it is even more pronounced in his solo work.

I am excited to see how Simon continues to weave his unique sound from his past musical venture into his new project. I think Simon Ward has a lot to give, and I’ll be here supporting him like I have been since I first heard “Spirits”.

Spirits by The Strumbellas (2016)

What’s Next for Simon and the Island?

While we all can feel alone, as if on an island, Ward wants everyone to remember that “no matter the distance, the size of land, or measure of experience, there is always a space for retreat, reflection, and renewal and reassurance that someone out there understands what you’ve been through”.

While it is not known what is next for Simon and the Island, much less The Strumbellas, Simon is obviously not done, so click the links below to keep an eye out for new material!

Running Scared (Desert Song) by The Strumbellas (2019)

Thank You Notes

I want to thank Alex Wiley (LPR Agency) for sending me this musician who I’ve been a huge fan of since I first heard Spirits. I also sincerely want to thank Simon Ward for not only being an inspiration to my writing, but also being a role model for so many around the world.

Who are Moon Walker?

Moon Walker is comprised of dynamic duo Harry Springer (singer/guitarist) and Sean McCarthy (drummer). Their eclectic brand of Rock & Roll has catapulted their music careers since their debut in May 2021. Harry and Sean have previously toured with the likes of Cage the Elephant and others.

Moon Walker’s major influences include Bowie, Talking Heads, and Led Zeppelin. Listeners will hear traces of funk, post punk, and other genres in their debut album, Truth To Power.

Truth to Power by Moon Walker Review

I like the unique mix of music included in this album. Thematically, Moon Walker’s music is politically motivated, imparting strong messages from some of the nicest and most humble people you’ll ever meet.

Devil has a nice mix of funk and modern rock and reminds me of what the Talking Heads would sound like today.

New Commandments is a reminder of just how much I love Cage the Elephant… Oh wait this is Moon Walker…

This Dark Town is most definitely a throwback to 70s punk rock music, but Moon Walker definitely added a little spice of their own.

(The rest of the songs have been previously reviewed)

Right now it is unclear what is up next for Moon Walker, but with their current success, we’re not too worried.

Joe Skylark | I Don’t Know Myself

Joe Skylark


According to Google (driven from Oxford Languages), hedonistic is an adjective meaning “to engage in the pursuit of pleasure or sensually self-indulge”.

Some major forms of hedomism that we are all familiar with are drinking and dancing.

Joe Skylarks recently stated that his new song “I Don’t Know Myself” is about “that feverish love you feel with your significant other while you’re on a hedonistic night out together” and that the song was basically born from wanting to be back on a dance floor, a feeling that many are missing right now.

Now for some this may not be true – for me the last place I want to be is a dance floor… But that’s just because I don’t have a significant other… YET!

But I guess that hedonistic need can relate to anyone or anything… For me it might be meeting and talking to someone of the opposite sex or a night out at the bar. It may not be a sensual night of dancing, but it’s truly something I’ve been yearning for…

What’s your hedonistic fantasy?

Who is Joe Skylark?

Joe has been involved in the Irish music scene for over 10 years as the lead singer of Heroes In Hiding. Now, he is branching out into his own solo music. His new path was born out of the desire to blend his love for EDM with singer-songwriter elements.

His major influences are The Chemical Brothers, Talking Heads, Frightened Rabbit, Phoebe Bridges, and many more.

I Don’t Know Myself by Joe Skylark Review

When listening to this single, I feel like I’m being transported back into the 80’s.

I don’t necessarily love the 80’s, but the musical and lyrical elements of this song resonate with me and create that slight twinge of nostalgia.

What’s Next for Joe Skylark?

This single follows his debut single, “Everything Is Happening”, and there’s more to come for sure… But at the moment, that material is still in the works.

Follow and like the links below to stay up to date with Joe’s musical future.

I want to thank Joe for sending me the material ahead of the single release in order to get this article published. I am looking forward to seeing where his solo career goes from here.

Leo Aram-Downs

Leo Aram-Downs

Leo Aram-Downs is a singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist living in Brighton (UK). His style blends finger-style acoustic and jazz with other genres that catch his attention. His recent single, Dashcam, was released on August 20th. The song is Aram-Down’s personal reflection on what it was like being in lockdown.

The ukulele riffs in this song make my heart sing and I think it compliments the bittersweet lyrics and feel of the song. One mystery to me though is the album cover. It makes me wonder how it relates to the song or the artist. One day I hope to find out its true meaning!

Fintan McKahey

Fintan McKahey

Hailing from Cork, Ireland, singer-songwriter and producer Fintan McKahey makes lo-fi acoustic songs that are both emotive and nostalgic. He layers mellow beats twith ambient sounds glazed with smoky vocals. His latest release, Lost Balloons, was released today. The song reflects on how the pressures of modern life can get overwhelming, and that things aren’t always in your control.

I can fully relate to the reflection of understanding that somethings are out of your control. The intense nostalgia in Fintan’s song is out of my control… But I don’t mind it at all. I love this song and think it’s a perfect fit for any night time music playlist.

Valeria Mood

Valeria Mood

Valeria Mood from Czech Republic has recently released her third and final single of off upcoming debut album called SelfSabotage. The single, Lost in the Dead End, is a story of a psychological game between a man and a woman.

When I first heard this song I immediately sent it to the biggest music critic I know – my Dad. Within, 10 minutes, he came back and told me that he was blown away by her talent. I think this pays testament to how relatable this song is across generations.

Finn Forster

Finn Forster

Indie folk pop singer songwriter Finn Forster has recently come out with his new song Remnants this June. This symphonic anthem recounts the journey of emotions that people feel when they reminisce about all that they have lost.

This is a heavy song, but also a therapeutic song. I love the acoustics and quality of production. The song is great for fans of Mumford & Sons, Lord Huron, and Local Natives. Make sure to add Remnants to your playlists!

Red Maker

Red Maker

Red Maker has come out with their debut single Better in Time in June. This song is about one’s promise to another to enjoy the present, even though it might be tough, because the future will be brighter.

I feel like this is a relatable theme for a lot of young couples, presented in an energetic, punk style. Lead off by Morgan Harris’ vocals, it is an easy fit amongst other songs in the genre.
