This song marks her second official release to date, following her previous work, "Illusion," which was unveiled on April 29, 2022. After more than a year of anticipation, "Slumber" arrives at the opportune moment, not only showcasing Flavus Nova's prowess as a composer but also highlighting her growth as an artist.

The result is an enchanting sound that captivates listeners from the very start.

Drawing inspiration from influential bands such as The Cranberries, Radiohead, Paramore, and Fleetwood Mac, Flavus Nova manages to carve out her unique identity.

Carousel

The pandemic lockdown was an event that definitely marked our lives forever. While isolation gradually became a habit, many of us still feel that things never returned to how they were before. In the midst of this chaos, Ivan Beecroft, a talented musician and composer from Melbourne, Australia, emerges as an immensely relevant figure in the world of music, where his latest release invites us to reflect on this intense period of our lives that has left wounds still open to this day.

"Carousel," his latest studio release, officially premiered on June 15, 2021, and is now returning as his new promotional single, inviting us to experience how music sometimes not only shines for its magnificence in composition but also serves as a vehicle that carries a strong message.

By combining elements from various rock genres such as alternative, garage, and stoner rock, Ivan Beecroft showcases his skill not only as a musician but also as an incredible composer and lyricist. With an authentic sound that strikes the perfect balance between the nostalgia of the '90s rock scene and a powerful, modern sound with recording techniques, his music leaves a lasting impression on listeners from the first listen. His creations aim not only to captivate with the sound of electrifying electric guitar riffs, energetic percussion, and powerful voices that resonate like a true anthem of struggle but also because of the profound background hidden behind each of his songs.

Drawing inspiration from the renowned work "Nineteen Eighty-Four" by the acclaimed writer George Orwell, "Carousel" began to take shape spontaneously, becoming the true rock banger it is today. Ivan explains, "The inspiration for the song came from rereading George Orwell’s 1984 the month before - the song seemed to write itself one day in my dining room. During that time, there was a constant barrage of press conferences with slogans reminiscent of Orwellian Newspeak, such as 'staying apart keeps us together.'"

In this way, "Carousel" arrives to establish itself as a banner of struggle for our frustration, expressing what we all want to say but often omit due to a lack of courage.

Destroya

SIR-VERE makes a triumphant return to the music scene with their latest release, "Destroya." This rock anthem unfolds against the backdrop of the COVID-19 lockdown, vividly portraying the phenomenon of the sickness.

Officially premiered on December 8, 2023, "Destroya" marks the band's third release of the year and has already accumulated nearly 8000 plays on Spotify to date. What sets it apart is that, much like their previous releases, this song comes in four different remix versions, featuring artists such as Rory Hoy, Vodzilla, and Sonale—showcasing the band's dynamism in adapting to various genres.

With an energetic and uplifting percussion, sharp guitar riffs, and commanding vocals, the song delves into the madness experienced during lockdown. It reflects on a period where individuals were left to their own devices in isolation while the government and society carried on as if everything were normal. The profound message of "Destroya" extends not only through the music and lyrics but also in its accompanying music video. Reminiscent of Architects' "These Colours Don't Run," the video boasts an impressive collection of high-quality images, capturing the listeners' attention and making a lasting impact from the very first seconds.

"Destroya" serves as a sneak peek of what's to come, as it is part of SIR-VERE's upcoming album, "Lovescope," scheduled for release on January 26, 2024, under Worldsound/Virgin Music Group.
