You can imagine yourself exploring new places and meeting interesting people while grooving along to this fantastic tune!
Do you ever feel like you’re stuck in a time warp? Well, that’s how I feel whenever I listen to the song “Arcades, Aeroplanes.” This song is the epitome of what I think of when I imagine music from the future. It’s so electronic and modern, yet it reflects music from the 70s. As the song progresses, the electronic melody only gets better. This composition will transport you to a futuristic experimental disco with retro influences.
“When Ferretheads Attack” transitions effortlessly from an upbeat sound into a more experimental techno and disco vibe, and it’s absolutely a work of art. The production on this track is top-notch. It’s clear that Bryanna has taken her time to perfect her craft, and the result is a truly amazing piece of music.
“Pandemica” is the perfect anthem for any party! The strong bassline and continuous punch keep the energy high, while the vocal harmonics and infectious synths create a playful and lively atmosphere.
If you’re looking for a solid dose of adrenaline-pumping dance music, look no further than “#Blaming Simar.” The track is an absolute banger, with its thumping bassline and soaring vocals. The artist demonstrates their versatility with this number. This song will get you moving – so get ready to bust a move when you hit play!
“String Theory” is distinctive and beautifully written. The soft vocals and simple instrumentation give the song an ethereal quality that is perfect for a slow, progressive build. The instrumentation has a gloomy vibe, which matches the lyrics perfectly. The vocals have clear rock influences, which add to the song’s intensity.
“1973” is a song with a strong message about women’s right to make their own decisions. The song opens with a proclamation in favor of abortion rights, making Rain’s intentions clear from the start. This message is the song’s central focus, commemorating women’s access to abortion in the USA. The statements are interspersed with various experimental instruments that match the song’s vibe, making for a powerful and unique listening experience.
“GhostBaby(Autumn)” by Bryanna Rain is a unique club song. The vocals and melody have disco music elements that make the song more vibrant and attention-grabbing. I was very drawn in by the bassline, then the voices, my, my! I loved this song, and it made me want to dance!
“Phosphene, Dancing” is a song that will transport you to another world. The combination of hypnotizing sounds and ethereal vocals will take you on a journey to a place where your imagination can run wild. The song features a variety of vocal styles and tones that create an otherworldly atmosphere. If you’re looking for a song to help you escape reality, “Phosphene, Dancing” is a perfect choice.
“Petrichor” has an eerie, mesmerizing quality, captivating and unsettling. The production features melodic synths and high-pitched voice effects that create a feeling of uneasiness and suspense. This is the first song on the album to fade away abruptly, leaving you wanting to hear more. “Petrichor” is a successful and impactful track that leaves a lasting impression.
“Ducks” is an incredible song that I highly recommend to anyone who hasn’t heard it yet. The song is completely hypnotizing and trippy, and the spoken vocals and music in the background add an extra layer of uniqueness to the track. It’s truly a one-of-a-kind song that you won’t be able to find anywhere else.
At the end of the chapter, we find “Satellite Piano Demo.” This song is special because it’s performed on voice and piano, which gives it a more intimate feeling. Bryanna’s vocals are gorgeous in this composition, making it a powerful and moving piece.
