From the Album ‘Come Back to Life’
Artist: Marc Killian
New Release: Think it Over
Genre: Pop Rock
Think It Over by Marc Killian is a Summer pop rock ballad that tests boundaries
Marc Killian is striving to step outside the box on this new single ‘Think It Over’ testing his boundaries and experimenting with a blend of Pop and Rock styles within the intro and chorus. The pop elements make the single catchy while the rock vibe feeds his core audience well. Following his journey, I’ve heard this artist tackle some tough songs stretching from country to hiphop and rock. You can always count on him to bring a strong vocal performance while testing the boundaries of traditional genres. It’s an interesting ride to follow.

Alt-rock band Mother Mother, has had a whirlwind year despite the world being on lockdown. After over a decade of releasing music, a new global audience discovered the band via TikTok, resulting in rapid growth across all platforms and a Rolling Stone feature on this unique artist development story. In Mother Mother’s home country of Canada, they’ve had many top 10 singles on the alternative radio charts, including #1’s for weeks on end and the crown of most airplay for any alternative act at radio for multiple years running.

“When creating music, I let the sounds, ideas, mood, and current inspiration control me until a certain point, where it all turns, and I naturally take over the control.”
Njordlyd ‘Subconsciously’ is an experience of the senses
Around 3 minutes into the track, I get the sensation of having to cry or being sad. It sort of builds up “subconsciously” from the beginning of the track. During the course of the track, it only becomes stronger and stronger.
