It’s time for some chill with Evening Space-tini!
We are now over the middle of August, but that doesn’t mean we are going to worry about the end of summer. More like the opposite, we are indeed enjoying these days more than ever, and this collection of tunes we are presenting to you today is going to cheer you up as well.
These are the best chill tunes to enjoy at the end of August, imagine now being along the shore, looking at the dusk coming and these tunes in the background. Enjoy the moment, there’s no need to rush, these amazing artists are going to accompany you through the end of the day, so let’s relax and enjoy the ride.
Let’s begin the happy hour.
Fox Evades – “Someday”
The next artist we are going to introduce you to is from Lincolnshire, United Kingdom. She goes under the moniker of Fox Evades and her last dreamy release is called “Nothing But Our Dreams”.
Here we are presenting you the tune “Someday” which really got stuck in our head. This tune has some shoegaze vibes we really dig. It reminded us of some tunes out of Turnover’s album “Peripheral Vision”, which is one of our favorite modern shoegaze releases to date. So it didn’t surprise us that this tune, and overall album soundscape and aesthetic, seemed really our jam.
Jordan Mae, the person behind this dreamy music project, is also the only songwriter and producer behind it. This shows her incredible production talent, as this release sounds way better than a production recorded in a bedroom.
Fox Evades is able to take classic shoegaze vibes and put a modern twist on them, creating a mystic vibe that sounds completely new and different from other latest productions.
EMMROSE – “The Feeling’s Mutual”
EMMROSE is back with another anthemic pop tune called “The Feeling’s Mutual”. We already had the pleasure of including EMMROSE in one of our Best of the Month articles and got to talk with her in a very nice interview which you can find here.
This time EMMROSE’s production sounds bigger than ever. Compared to her other releases this track has definitely more energy and a rock approach we definitely dig. You can feel from the performance what EMMROSE is feeling, this has been a very personal tune to write, and the song represents a cathartic moment for the singer-songwriter to express all her energy and thoughts through a robust vocal performance.
To categorize this song as an Indie Pop tune might not be enough, as the arrangement indeed takes many elements from other genres like electro-pop and indie music and merges them together with a rock core.
The frustration EMMROSE’s felt from the toxic friendship she writes about is clearly evident, and makes it easy for the listener to empathize with her emotion. We’ve been through this as well, and this track has been extremely uplifting for us.
ONBAR – “GOOD”
Let’s start the evening in full style with the help of ONBAR, an amazing artist from San Jose, CA, and let’s kick off our speakers with his crazy groove and exclusive vibes.
His latest release “GOOD” (in collaboration with 2 of his friends) is for sure the best way to begin this article, as the title of this song: a minimal but incredibly special tune that features stunning chords progression, with an extremely neat production and a brilliant musical arrangement.
This song will bring you up to a cloud from the very first seconds with its exquisite sounds and upbeat rhythm, giving you an instantly good mood and a perception of life completely different from what you used to know. A song that tells a story, lyrically and musically, and we literally couldn’t have enough of it even after loop modes for hours!
ONBAR has been releasing music since 2020, and we recommend to have a listen also to his previous release, you won’t get disappointed.
Obviously curious about what this artist reserves us for the future, but in the meanwhile, let’s have a GOOD time with this sick release.
NIGHTLY GATHERINGS – “Accepted”
For those who already heard this artist, we know that writing about his music would literally diminish it, but we also want to introduce this phenomenal artist to all the ones who never heard his piece of art before. NIGHTLY GATHERINGS, (also appearing on SpaceSour here),
is probably one of the artists that inspired us to build up this Evening-Space Tini format thanks to his incredible sound, and here he comes with his brand new EP “Accepted” released less than a month ago.
The EP contains 4 tracks: a (sadly)short journey to heaven where enchanting and compelling melodies will give us peace of mind, relax our body, and bring us to the immersive discovery of the beauties of these tunes, featuring futuristic and organic sounds and combined to Connor vocals and complex glitches.
Our favorite? Difficult to say as we loved all the EP, but if we have to suggest one for the first-time listeners, we would for sure recommend “Always” as the first track: an easy start to get to know this artist and get your mind ready to fully comprehend his sound of the rest of the EP.
Seat your belt and let’s dive into space this evening with NIGHTLY GATHERINGS.
LILOE RIX – “Let Go”
LILOE RIX, outstanding talent from Amsterdam, Netherlands, is a musician, singer/songwriter that knows how to delight our ears with her incredible voice and her creative musical riffs.
One of her latest releases just got stuck in our mind and definitely wanted us to have it as a must during our relaxing evening: “Let Go” is definitely what we need to enjoy the sunset with a great vibe. The song has some remarkable bass lines with a deep and crunchy sound, incredibly pleasant to listen to! The bass combined with the drums gives the track a solid groove, where rhythmic and melodic guitar fills the ambient with beautiful riffs.
Liloe vocals are clean, tenacious, and confident, with a solid decisive timbre during the verses and a soft one during the choruses. The choirs are incredibly well produced and give the track wideness and excitement, for sure one of the strongest skills of this artist!
We loved the bridge in the song, with a wonderful melodic progression, we couldn’t miss this track in this article!
Rich Jacques – “Can You See It”
The next artist comes directly from Los Angeles, and his latest release really makes us find some inner peace. We are talking about Rich Jacques, who just put out an amazing EP called “Everything Must Change”.
The track we wanted to present to you today from the EP is Can you See it. That’s the track with the most indie folk vibe from the EP, and definitely a great introduction to Rich Jacques sound. Rich’s singing style on this one is very mild and soothing accompanied by a piano part that supports the guitar chord progression.
The message behind the track is simple, concise yet very modern. In line with the mood of the song that makes us imagine ourselves on our front porch or backyard just enjoying the horizon and nothing else. The guitar lo-fi sound and bass sound give that modern twist that makes the song stand out from the rest of the chill folk tunes you might listen around.
CHARLIE WEATHERSBY – “Iridescent Sky”
CHARLIE WEATHERSBY is an independent artist from San Antonio, TX, and has been releasing music since 2017, with the latest release called “Iridescent Sky”.
With this song, we’ll escape from reality for this evening, giving ourselves some time to chill, think, and clear up our minds. This is a 5 minutes track but it feels much shorter thanks to the beautiful arrangement and the warm tones this song emanates: it features charming retro-sounding guitars and 80s synth pads, accompanied by vintage punchy drums and the enchanting voice of Charlie that will guide us through this surreal voyage.
Charlie’s voice makes the tune unique, with a cozy and mellow tone this song can express all the feelings it was meant to give, and nostalgic vibes will literally give you goosebumps when you less expect it.
A great addition to this list for this evening, exactly what we were looking for.
Jonathan Lobo – “Magic”
Last but not least we have an incredibly talented fresh artist from Dubai. his name is Jonathan Lobo, and he released an eclectic new EP called “Love”. This simple title and word easily give an idea of what this EP is about.
The release is indeed full of meaningful messages, conveyed by Jonathan’s pen and inspired by his life moments. The arrangement and songwriting also sparkle with a bright light of positivity. A honest attempt of spreading a positve message through some electro-pop and indie pop tracks.
We think Jonathan Lobo succeeded in this, especially with his song Magic, which is the song we are presenting to you today. “Can we have five more minutes of Magic?”, we all have been in that situation, in that magical moment we don’t want to finish, and this song perfectly captures that feeling.
The bluesy-electronic drums give that groovy foundation that builds up during the song with the enticing acoustic guitar riffs and reverse guitar sounds. A compelling production that fits perfectly with Jonathan’s melody and performance.
