Onyeka – People In Our Lives

Genre: Indie Rock, Indie Pop, Dream Pop

Being a devoted fan of an artist carries with it some responsibility. Let’s not kid ourselves. And, by the same token, being an artist who is lucky to have admirers, comes with a number of obligations. No other one is more important than acting as a kind of tour guide for fans, showing them around, calming them and explaining how they should be looking at art. 

If done right, an artist can expose you, the fan, to a myriad of their influences and can help you see more of the world. If done right, an artist can take the formulas that made them well-known and expand on them, adding new and exciting information. At best, an artist can act as a mentor to fans. That’s a tall order, sure. 

Onyeka sounds up to the task. Just listen to “People In Our Lives,” on the surface a suave piece of pleasant pop music. Getting an audience involved should be easy for an artist of this kind of talent. But, listen closely and you will notice a complexity that Steely Dan or Weather Report might be responsible of. It’s just that all of that musical ability is cleverly disguised under sweet radio hooks. Ultimately, Onyeka is on a journey, asking you to come along and making it easy to follow. 


dwn bad – Palace of You 

Nobody relaxes in silence anymore. Not unless you’ve registered for a month of meditation in an ashram in Northern India. Not unless you’re being held hostage in a work camp in Siberia and trying to get some sleep. You wouldn’t unless you were stuck in ways that haven’t worked for most people for decades upon decades now. 

No, most of us have learned to live with noise. Particularly if you are living in a big city, it’s unavoidable and your best chance of avoiding going insane is learning to work with it, rather than fight it. That’s why people seek out music meant to assist them in their relaxation, sounds that will help them find some kind of peace within the thunderstorm of noise in which they find themselves. 

dwn bad’s easy-going blend of psychedelic pop heard on “Palace of You” sounds like music meant to help young workers relax after a day of pummeling a keyboard for a living. This is not music meant to want to convince you to hide away. Rather, these are sounds that ideally will convince you to live in balance with the deafening roar of the outside world.
