AMARU – a singer-songwriter and a trained actor, originally from the Republic of Suriname residing in The Netherlands since 1991 – has found critical success with enough Pop, Rock, R&B and Electronic influenced songs that there’s plenty of demand for more, but there’s nothing like hearing the gloriously hard-nosed Dutch artist rap a beat to shreds.

KC Sisters: “Walk With Me” – sincere, authentic and absolute!

The KC Sisters aren’t old enough to remember when radio programmed pop records next to country, rock, folk, and beyond, but their artistic DNA tells them that’s the way music was meant to be heard. Their sound on the EP, “Walk With Me”, is like a warm embrace from a loved one. It’s sincere, authentic and absolute, taken from a legacy of sound that comes from their fondness for the all-girl groups of the 1960s. The Casey sisters – Deanna, Noelle, Tasha, Elise and Kathleen – highlight their acapella harmonization, as well as their mastery as skilled musicians, playing piano,

Aprilann: “Crown and the Girls” (Remix) – an impeccably-crafted song

Born and raised in Florida, Manhattan resident, Aprilann has several songs on iTunes and her latest self-written release Crown and the Girls, produced by acclaimed New York producer Artie Skye of Skyelabs, was released earlier this year. It tells the ageless story of heartbreak and the difficulty of letting go. She recently completed the remix for Crown and the Girls’, along with a performance lyric video.  Aprilann is currently in the studio working on her debut EP set for release later this year.

In the music industry, there’s a difference between hype and excitement. Hype is guaranteed by the press but without excitement, all of that publicity might as well be for nothing. For pop songstress, Aprilann, the excitement has always been there since the release of the original version of Crown and the Girls’ last year.

From rolled down car windows on city streets to backyard BBQs to department stores to bowling alleys, the remixed version of Crown and the Girls’ might as well be awarded Song of 2017 as there will be no escaping it – not that we’d want to – clearly paving the way for Aprilann’s upcoming debut EP to shine, and with a record like this, the future seems bright for the singer.

There’s no shortage of impeccably-crafted synth-pop hooks with a hint of sass and ambition thrown into this track, and fans of the original ballad version of Crown and the Girls’ fans will be rolling down windows of their own, reciting every word within no time. The track comes barreling in with a strong punch – anthemic as it is empowering.

Producers PGee and Mystro have done an excellent job of just stepping up the tempo, and injecting the song with edgy energy, but avoiding to refurbish the lead vocal track in any way with the usual outrageous, over the top EDM effects. This leaves the track’s lyrical poignancy totally intact and Aprilann’s voice to carry the song with class and dignity, redefining the term ‘girl power’.

The distinctive and certainly unique element on the original version that struck out to me from the beginning was Aprilann’s hearty, emotional vocals. It’s heavily boosted with her grace and flair that blends well within the track. It represented a highly motivational anthem about challenging relationship tribulations on your doorstep.

Now PGee and Mystro remix the track a step forward in the right direction, maturing up musically whilst still maintaining the darkish ambience in the foreground. It fits perfectly with Aprilann’s style and mood encased inside Crown and the Girls’; a mixture of awe, heartache, and everything in between. It takes the song full circle.
